Some months later, but never mind...
My exposure financially is the time I waste rewashing what should be cleaned on the first pass. The days I have to spend waiting on an engineer's visit or arranging for someone to be in the house. The cost of replacement because I get hacked off with it or its warranty expired and so did the machine.
I value my time higher than a piece of <insert appropriate term to you> dishwasher that doesn't wash dishes very well.
It cracks me up, I had a a chap on the phone the other day with one of these under another brand that told me that he was sick of wasting days off waiting for a repair and that every day off cost him £180. So, I asked myself, why, if you earn £180 per day, are you buying a cheap, cr4p, dishwasher that doesn't work when you can plainly afford something that is decent and actually works?
I'll never figure out why people are so tight when it comes to appliances yet have two cars on the driveway, one's usually German that they paid a mint for, yet they skimp on things that they see as "essential" and expect it to run for longer than the car without the need for a £200+ service every year.
