About - Fisher & Paykel DD24DCTX7

The Fisher & Paykel DD24DCTX7 is part of the dishwasher test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, dishwasher models like the DD24DCTX7 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing:
Assessed by running the normal or equivalent cycle to clean a full load--10 place settings of very dirty dishes that were scraped but not rinsed. We examine the dishes and glassware for residual food after cleaning.

Drying:
Drying is our assessment of how thoroughly a model dries plastic items, the most stubborn in any load. We evaluate drying performance using the same cycle we use for our Washing test. As directed by manufacturers, we use rinse aid in every load.

Energy use:
For a normal cycle. The largest portion is needed for heating water, both at the water heater and in the machine.

Comment:
This dishwasher works well . . . until it doesn't. I started with 2 dish drawers, since I live alone, thinking that I could use the one for myself and both when I had guests. It worked fine for a few years (maybe 5) and then just stopped cleaning, was out of warranty, and I couldn't find anyone to fix it. I replaced the two with a higher-end KitchenAid and have never looked back. This was 8 years ago. <br /><br />I bought a third dish drawer for my guest house less than 3 years ago after a Bosch I had in there died. I have been living in my guest house during a remodel of the main house, and within 3 months it had stopped cleaning and was constantly clogged. I had it repaired and it did the same thing after only 2 washings! These look great, and should be great for small spaces and singles, but they just don't hold up.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Works great when new, after 10 years of use has had controller boards replaced three times. Lousy field service, few techs who can work on them. If you like your appliance repairman, you'll get to see a lot of him if you own a Fisher Paykel.<br />Four friends have owned, all have replaced with Bosch or other brands.

Comment:
We are retired and have more small plates, cups, glasses. We do not feel guilty loading up and running several times in a day. We love that we do not have to bend over and pull out wire trays to load and unload.<br />Best of all, the dishes are clean! Because the drying cycle is not heated, the cycle is long but we are not in a hurry and get some satisfaction knowing the air drying is kind to the planet. We had problems with the original so we checked carefully before purchasing again. We found that the most serious issues had been addressed. We have been using a standard dishwasher for the past 2 years and can hardly wait to have one again in our new home.<br />Our kids had one but it was not the right choice for a growing family. Not enough space and not as rugged. They also were in a hurry so needed a faster cycle.
