The reason they suck is they now have very weak motors - to change that out is not an easy modification. One can change the computer to use enough water.
People are washing on the long cycles and multiple times - using a lot of water in the sink rinsing so they will get clean - the regs are not doing what they think.
I wish I could have the Maytag I bought in 1986 - it worked really well.
They have destroyed Dishwashers, Washing machines, water-heaters, shower heads (they did improve conditioners. )
I just want the government to stay the F*** out of my life.
If you rinsed the gunk off your plates as soon as you finished eating, threw them into the dishwasher and ran the dishwasher before your food had a chance to get dried out, moldy and lord knows what else, the dishwasher would work just fine on a single cycle.
