I have used Keens in Wycombe for a number of years for dishwasher and washing machine and tumble drier repairs.  No extra call out charge as I remember.  This from yell.co.uk as I am too lazy to go into another room to look up the file.

A very good white goods repair man is Chris Summers, his mobile number is 07956 560530. Very reliable, very reasonable and comes highly recommended.

I was just looking for Chris's details - he fixed our Tumble Dryer recently and my wife was very impressed by him

So Emma, did your dishwasher get fixed and how much did it cost? Our dishwasher packed up at the same time and I am thinking of getting a new one rather than getting it repaired.

My dish washer packed up the other day as well, I brought her a new pair of gloves. That seemed to have fixed itLOL

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Dishwashers More Efficient Than Hand Washing
Scientists at the University of Bonn in Germany who studied the issue found that the dishwasher uses only half the energy, one-sixth of the water, and less soap than hand-washing an identical set of dirty dishes. Even the most sparing and careful washers could not beat the modern dishwasher. The study also found that dishwashers excelled in cleanliness over hand washing

Yes but most people dont fill their dishwashers up before turning them on, therefore using more water than washing with hands.
I bet that doesnt include the electricity used to run the washer and heat the water either.
 
Human power is better.

I often read debates on this forum and am amazed at how pedantic people are, but now it seems I've been converted... What are you basing that statement on?  As far as I am aware I'm fairly normal in only using my dishwasher once it's full, in the same way I only use my washing machine once I have a full load to clean - is that unusual?

Current research suggests it is even more environmentally friendly to use a dishwasher, using less than one tenth the amount of water that hand washing uses and less detergent.

Most people I think tend to wait until they have 1 and a half loads before they put the machine on, cram it all in, and wonder why the machine breaks,... LOL
 
The discussions also ignores the fact that it takes me 5 minutes to unstack and reload my dishwasher OR 20 minutes or more to properly wash the dishes, in which time I have much better things to do - like ramming clothes into the washing machine Wink
