Bloody Mozilla Firefox update stuffed up my typed response which was a nonetheless heartfelt load of crap anyway - so I won't repeat it.
Seems I now have version 2.01.00.0hfuck installed and running. Golly.

HAHA, those old infermercials I last saw one when I was about 7 or 8 I guess, "LV Martin and son's products can be purchased from these as seen on TV stores."

I was planning on replacing the kitchen appliance all at once along with kitchen remodelling down the road but since I have to have the dishwasher prior to that grand scheme, another requirement for the dishwasher is that the face panel can be changed easily.
I bought mine in white and changed it to stainless. Pretty easy. The panels just slide in and out. They also have wood panels available.

Thanks to all who responded, both relevant and irrelevant.

In the end, I came to a full circle and going with the initial instinct - Bosch.

At the applicance showroom today, it was the dueling dishwashers between Bosch and Fisher-Paykel. Bosch was quieter, FP was more alluring, but the deciding factor was the 10-qt saucepan I took with me was a very tight fit in the drawer of Fisher Paykel.

It was easy once I was able to formulate car-dishwasher parallelism below:

Fisher Paykel - Land Rover (Range Rover)
Definitely sexy and sure to impress dinnerguests - a status item. Highly unreliable with most repairs necessitated - like LR's they'll spend half of their life in the shop or being dysfunctional.

Bosch - Mercedes
The gold standard of industry. Other manufacturers may have inched closer but still the leader and innovator in their respective fields.

Miele - BMW
Those poor German cousins. Snottier and gimmickier due to inferiority complex.

Asko - Saab
Esoteric high-end Swedish products. Breaks down just as much as FP-LR.

LG/Samsung - Asian Imports
Laughed at when they first entered the market but now forces high-end Germans run for their money. Highly reliable and stylish but somewhat soulless and tinny compared to German imports.

Kitchenaid - Cadillac
Once the best dishwashers around.

Maytag - Ford
Had its share in the olden days and old appliances are like Model T, everyman's model but has been posting horrendous losses lately.

GE - rest of GM
Think Oldsmobile Alero, 'nuf said.

I've bought four Bosch d/w over the years. My ma and sis have also had a couple each. Everyone has been happy with them.

When I lived in NY we had a Whirlpool. It had a built in waste grinder which my wife liked. They don't seem to have that feature on UK models as far as I know.

Animals, if you haven't washed the dishes in over 6 months the sink must be overflowing.

This is our Austrian housekeeper, Heidi. She still does not know why I was taking her pictures while she was doing the dishes. I'll explain it to her later.
