Dielman’s Top 5,000 Reasons Never to Buy a New Dishwasher: A blog about the top 5,000 reasons never to buy a new dishwasher.
I had a Bosch dishwasher for 14 years. It ran well and cleaned dishes thoroughly. When it stopped working, I called Bosch customer service to see if they could help me figure out what was wrong with it, but their diagnosis was that it was probably time for a new one. I figured that after 14 years of heavy use, that was probably fair enough. I took the old one apart and looked at it and it sure looked like there was plenty of life left in the machine; the body was in great shape and none of the parts looked worn out or damaged. It just needed some minor repairs that I didn’t have the tools or knowledge to do myself. Still, if I was going to have someone come in and fix it for me, it would likely be more expensive than buying a new one.
Not wanting to throw out something that still had so much life left in it, I decided to try selling it online instead of throwing it away — surely somebody could fix it up or use some parts from it — but no one wanted to buy it “as is”. It seems
Dielman’s Top 5,000 Reasons Never to Buy a New Dishwasher
Dielman’s Top 5,000 Reasons Never to Buy a New Dishwasher is a blog about the top 5,000 reasons never to buy a new dishwasher. It is the brainchild of Sandy Dielman and his wife, Paula. The couple met on a Friday night in May 2005 at a bar in downtown Binghamton. They were introduced by mutual friends and bonded over their love of music and the outdoors. The two began dating shortly after meeting. They moved in together four months later and married in June 2007. Their son, Elliot, was born in March 2008.
I have never bought a new dishwasher. There are many reasons to avoid buying a new dishwasher. I’m going to tell you about the top 5,000 reasons.
First, let me tell you a little about myself. I am Howard Dielman, and I have never bought a new dishwasher. Probably never will. Why? That’s what this blog is all about!
Why? Because the new dishwasher is so much more powerful. I’m fairly certain there are some good reasons to buy a new dishwasher. But I’m currently in the process of making a list of 5,000 reasons not to get one. And I hope to be done with it in about a year.
My first reason is that I already have a working dishwasher, and it has been keeping my dishes clean for years. So why would I need another one?
As far as I can tell, the only thing wrong with my current model is that it’s old. But as long as it keeps working, I don’t really care how old it is.
I’ll post reasons
Number 1,000: The new dishwasher will not be able to hold as many dishes as your old dishwasher.
Number 476: There is always a chance that your old dishwasher could power up by itself and start washing all of your dirty dishes when you least expect it.
Number 222: If you have children, you may find that they will become obsessed with the new dishwasher and refuse to leave it alone. This can lead to dangerous situations where they are playing in the dishwasher while it is full of water and running.
Number 3: Your old dishwasher never asked for much, but one thing it always wanted was a nice stable relationship with an appliance dryer. Don’t ruin that for your old dishwasher by bringing a new dishwasher into the relationship. It will only end in heartbreak for everyone involved.
Number 5: You may be thinking that buying a new dishwasher will solve all of your problems, but this is not the case! In fact, buying a new dishwasher may just introduce more problems into your life than you can currently handle.
