General Electric Permatuf Potscrubber 600

This is a story of 2 dishwashers and a disgruntled housewife who thought that the grass was greener on the other side. The story begins when I have a friend who is getting all new stainless steel appliances in his kitchen. To accommodate the new appliances he has to get rid of his old of his old appliances which includes the General Electric Permatuf Potscrubber 600 that he offers to give to me if I will come pick it up.
A range and a huge microwave also comes along with the deal.
So my wife is dissatisfied with our current dishwasher which I believe if I am not mistaken reviewed previously, she claims that it is just not getting the dishes as clean as it ought to. She decides that she would like to take our dishwasher out and install the one that my friend is giving away, she believed that anything would beat the dishwasher that we had.
To humor my wife I go down and pick up the appliances from my friends house and me and my wife’s brother-in-law swap out the two dishwashers. After installation we fire it up to make sure that there are no leaks and that it works(it being a used dishwasher and all), and it worked fine with no leaks. But was it a better dishwasher?
In my opinion no, and my complains about this one too. I don’t know if it is our water pressure, the way we load it, or the dishwasher is wore out; but it gets only about 90% of the dishes clean on a good run. That is about the same or worse than or old one. However it seems to be a little easier to load and have more space on the bottom. One other thing, it only washes from the bottom, there is no water or anything washing from the top.
Would I recommend this washer, no I would have to say no. On a funny note, I wouldn’t advise putting concentrated hand washing detergent in any dishwasher unless you use a tiny amount. I think I used a wee little bit too much, my Potscrubber 600 spewed out suds all over the kitchen floor.
