Hotpoint dishwasher Model - HLD4000NWW
Hotpoint dishwasher Model#: HLD4000NWW This is the most expensive dishwasher we've ever bought, although it's been a while and so sticker shock just goes with the territory when you haven't purchased a dishwasher in ten years.
To be fair, it was somewhere in the middle range, price-wise, at the store where we got it, at around 360 dollars. Anyway, we expected a lot from our fancy new washer, having had a positive experience with the last Hotpoint, the one that lasted over 10 years.
I don't remember if the older one was made by GE, but the package this one came in said General Electric, so I guess they own them now.
It's a good machine-- very quiet, with 3 different removable accessory baskets and four levels of cleaning including one for fine china(do people actually use this?) and an “antibacterial level” which features a little light on the door that comes on when the dishes have met sanitary conditions.
They call it the towerless wash system-- I'm not clear on why they do, I guess because there's no large central tower spraying your dishes, just nozzles all around.
The dishes do come out pretty clean, even the stuff on top. It's still too early to see if it uses a lot of water-- the literature stresses that it doesn't. We'll see. Anyway, we like it a lot.
