Old one died yesterday. I don't want to spend a bundle. We probably won't live in this house long enough to get our money's worth out of a top end Electrolux or Bosch. As a former Realtor I know dishwashers do not sell houses. Lack of one can. So $500 and under, is relatively quiet, able to half loads would be nice, but as long as it gets the dishes clean and it is white I am not going to be too fussy. I really have not shopped for a DW in almost 20 years.
