Hubby bought this dishwasher for me about five months ago and i must say i love it.
The instructions in the handbook are simple and easy to follow. Its easy to set up and get it started.
My only problem at first was that i didn't know the hard water level in the area in which i lived but that was sorted after i called my water company who told me.
You will need to buy dishwasher salt as well as rinse aid. Its also recommended that you buy a dishwasher cleaner which you would need to use once every month.
The dishwasher comes with sample washing tablets from 'Finish' brand. From the instruction booklet you are almost led to believe that finish is the only brand that makes this machine work. In actual fact,it isn't. Fairy liquid tabs 3-in-1 work just fine and are cheaper in the long run. With them, you don't need to buy salt or rinse aid.
The machine is however BRILLIANT. Its easy to clean, an energy saver if you wash on economy and would suit a small family or couple as its not that big.
