    Right you are, RAnnn! My dishwasher finally gave out three days before Christmas, just when my house full of company arrived, so my husband and I had to run out and get a new one that could be delivered quickly. My new one is quieter, it saves on energy, but it is not very good at cleaning dishes, and the racks, though adjustable, are badly shaped. If I'd had more time, I would have researched it better, but you know, emergency situation and all (I'm old and didn't relish the job of washing all the dishes for all the meals I was doing). Now my refrigerator is making strange noises so I'm studying up ahead of time, and the washer squeaks and the dryer shakes (or is it vice-versa?), and it looks like this is going to be an expensive year ahead.

    The other question to ask is whether you like the appliance you have. If you have a dishwasher that actually gets your dishes clean in a reasonable lenght of time, fix it. Newer ones are energy and water efficient excpet they do a horrible job. I wish I had that builder's grade dishwasher that came with my first house 25 years ago.
