Dishwasher Woes

Our dishwasher stopped draining.  Ryan took the drain apart and tried to see if there was something blocking it.  Nothing.  A few days later (when Ryan had time again), he tried a more invasive check of internal parts, and thought maybe the drain pump was dead.  So Ryan ordered a new pump.

Long story short-- it was not the drain pump.  

The next possible part to replace was almost as much as a new dishwasher.

Our dishwasher posed as an overpriced dish drainer for a week and a half.

Our next date night took us appliance shopping.  Our big tax return present to ourselves was a new dishwasher.  (Boo.  Not what I really wanted.)  What we bought was not nearly as nice (read- expensive) as a Bosch, but as the silly thing was pretty new and now dead, how nice can a Bosch be?

Ta da.  The new dishwasher.  Lowes didn't have anything we wanted in white, so we have an un-matching stainless steel appliance, but at least it was cheap.
