Great, just great! I started it after breakfast, DH walked in the kitchen and said "what's that smell"? It stopped right after the detergent release cycle.

I had a problem with it last year and it took 2 weeks to find someone that would work on a Bosch, they all said parts were horrible to try to get.

Looks like I'm heading out soon to buy a new one. Ugh, I hate washing dishes!!!

PLUS, we have guests coming over for dinner tonight......just shoot me now please! 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 8 years ago -

No way can you get one bought and installed by dinner.

I'm with you on dishes...can't stand them to pile up in the sink and can't stand hand washing them. I had to do them by hand during the outage of Ike, and here at the lake I only have a couple to wash since we eat out each night, but I had DH put me in a GOOD dishwasher, what came with the place was a piece of crap.

I always heard that Bosch was good...get a Maytag, knock on wood, I haven't had a problem yet with mine. 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

Oma, I know I can't get one by tonight but maybe if I purchase it today, it can be delivered on Monday.

I'm NOT getting another Bosch that's for sure. I'm waiting on DD to finish drying her hair, then we are outta here.

Froggie, we bought an Electrolux a few years ago and it's great!

It runs so quiet that you have to touch the door with your hand checking for a little vibration, or put your ear to the door to know that it's running. Plus, a blue light shines on the floor to alert you when it's finished the wash / dry cycle.

They're a little pricey, but worth the investment and we've never had a problem with it.

We bought ours at Lowes and had them install it. 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

Thanks Pepper, I had planned on going to Best Buy and the Sears appliance store on 190. Maybe we will hit the Lowes store too.

ok, she is ready (finally), catch you all later! 

FabFive --- 8 years ago -

What did you end up getting? 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

Just got home, bought an Electrolux. Brought it home and some friends are coming over to install it.

Now how to get the water out of the old one....that the question of the hour. Any suggestions? 

Pepper --- 8 years ago -

^^^ Good choice Froggie ^^^

Did you, by chance, get it at Lowes?

Other than using a really big sponge, I can't help with getting the water out of your old washer ... 

AngieKaye --- 8 years ago -

sorry bosch are terrible! Everyone I know they all go out right after warranty expires same with GE.

Glad you chose Electrolux. I got a fridgedaire and so far so good :) 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 8 years ago -

My dishwasher is a MonzaRacer...LOL 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

Pepper, I got it at Best Buy. It's all hooked up and runs great. Angie, our old one was 10 years old but being a Bosch, it should still be working.

Oh well....problem solved and I'm happy!!

Glad the dishwasher is fixed.

How did the party go since you didn't have to worry about doing dishes? 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

It wasn't really a party, just friends over for dinner. We decided to grill outside since the kitchen was a mess but everything was great and my kitchen is back in order.....thank goodness!!!!!

TexasOma (Mod) --- 8 years ago -

It was raining up here in Montgomery by 5:30. It was a cold, nasty, drizzly rain. Definitely not a grill outside and have fun type a night. Hope it was better down there in Kingwood.

We walked across the street to have supper with with our friends. She had put a roast in the crockpot earlier in the day and knew we would be tired from our work...so invited us to dine with them rather than us going out to eat like we usually do up here. We had to use the umbrella both ways...nasty, nasty weather.

It's not too bad today - cold, dreary, but no rain. Gonna head home in a bit to do some stuff down there. 

Pepper --- 8 years ago -

It's 52 degrees in Kingwood, Oma, and the rain has definitely put a chill in the air ... 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 8 years ago -

I want to know who stole Spring? 

Pepper --- 8 years ago -

I think GA has been up to her usual shenanigans again ...

J/K GA :) 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 8 years ago -

Yeah..me too. She's the one who said she didn't like the heat, liked all the cold weather we've been having.

GA, you better stop it and give us back our Spring. 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

^^^^^^^^^^what she said!!

AngieKaye --- 8 years ago -

Spring is on the way!!! My azalea's are in full bud now! They usually have buds late february and in full bloom by now Just saw all the buds coming out today. 

Pepper --- 8 years ago -

Hey Froggie, how's that dishwasher working out for ya?

Does your's have the "blue light special" feature? 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

Pepper...LOL..it DOES!!! I was wondering how I was going to tell if it had finished the complete wash/dry cycle.

Too funny..."Blue light special"

Pepper --- 8 years ago -

How cool is that, huh?

I don't know if this has happened to you yet, but sometimes I've closed the door and accidentally tapped the "start" icon on the control panel with the palm of my hand and as soon as the door is closed the washer starts running.

All I have to do is open the door and press "cancel", but it took me a long time to figure out why that was happening.

I thought the machine had glitch in it, but turns out it was "operator error" ... 

Froggie --- 8 years ago -

I haven't started it by mistake yet, but I can see how it would happen. I've touched the different cycle buttons while closing the door and they beep.

This dern thing is soooooo quiet!!! All in all I'm a happy camper.
