I have been waiting for dishwasher deals in the $1k-1.2k range for a few months now. Finally decided I was happy with the LG units until I saw a bunch of negative reviews on the medium-long term reliability of their dishwasher range (I am very happy with them for most other appliances), and decided to just go premium.
These ASKO units in my experience dry better than Bosch, without having to use Rinse-aid (it has a 'turbo-fan' system). 2 people in my immediate family have had ASKO dishwashers for the past 7 years and not had any issues, so we are very happy with them.
ASKO are a bit different from normal products as stores do not hold stock - they use a special ordering portal to place an order for you directly with ASKO. This means you can't use gift cards as payment is processed directly with ASKO!!!
This also means that pricing is generally dictated by ASKO and they rarely go on sale. Right now they are offering $300 off plus a free extended warranty that normally costs $199. That's $499 off a range that is rarely discounted. As of yesterday afternoon they even had stock ready for delivery!
I have linked The Good Guys, but pricing should be the same at most stores. Just chose the store / salesperson you want to support.
Please note, on JB website they were trying to charge for delivery. As stock comes direct from ASKO, price should be inclusive of basic delivery. Shop around if they want to charge you!
If you are buying from Good Guys on the south side of Brisbane (Loganholme) I can put you in touch with a very helpful salesperson that I ordered mine from yesterday (not affiliated).
