Great Aldi Dishwasher that competes high end dishwashers
I am amazed with this dishwasher and what can it do to wash dishes. amazing results and diffidently recommended.
After sales in home warranty is a great addition as well.
Never worked from the start must of been made on a Friday afternoon.
Only successfully washed every 4th or 5th was. Heating element fault was indicated. Left everything wet, cold and covered in grease/oil. Starting to think Aldi products are not what they're made out to be
Purchased in May 2019 for $353.00.

Had ours for two years now shocking!
Upon installation our dishwasher did not work, booked a service call and two weeks later someone came to change the control panel. Still did not work! Booked another service call and another control panel this time worked!
Does not wash dishes well and can only use heavy or intense to get a wash, loath the cutlery tray as have to lay out each piece individually.
Now getting E2 error pump blocked but nothing in the pipes and all drainage clear.
I think best place for this dishwasher is the scrap heap!
The dishwasher is now 2 years old and both top and bottom baskets are rusting in all different spots mainly on the underneath of them. Had normal daily use for the two years but when I contacted Stirling while still within my 3 year warranty period they stated as previous reviews have, that it is "not covered by warranty" and it must be something I am doing. I will be taking this further as obviously it IS a fault with the dishwasher and clearly a product defect. I do find the washing of the dishes no better or worse than previous dishwashers I have owned but not taking responsibility for faulty products is unacceptable and must be rectified as stated in their own warranty details under the Consumer Act 2010.
Purchased in July 2017.
I have no complaints about this excellent machine. It gives a great wash. Has a good and simple selection of cycles, half hour to 3 hours. Excellent wash and quiet.

Easy installation and I like the layout of the racks however we got a lemon.
It never finished its first wash and was beeping/flashing error code saying there is an internal leak somewhere.
The bottom was flooded. I called Tempo for help as per instructions in the Manual, they weren’t helpful at all. Told me to run another load eventho it’s flooded ?!?!?
I soon realised its stuck on the error code and it wasn’t going to do another load.
So we unplugged it and dragged it back to Aldi store for a full refund
I only ran it once. stuck pools on the bottom doesnt drain? Glass indiccator flickers. Now it only makes a grinding noise does my head in. Anybody have this problem?
The end of the cycle the water does not drain poor quality materials and you can't stop in the middle of the cycle it has to start at the begining waste of money
Does the job well
Works great & I do rinse dishes before putting them in dishwasher, hose clogged up once but that is expected. Had it since May 2016 with no issues & recommend it to anyone, you get what, you paid for
Rubbish!! Waste of money
Bought this just 1.5 months ago. already facing lots of issues...it doesn't stop after washing..drains the water and starts again the whole process and keeps going..the dishwashing table container got issues as well..
After sales service is extremely poor
After purchase we noticed that one of the plastic wheels that allowed the upper dish rack to slide in and out was missing. We contacted Tempo, the authorised customer service agent for the Aldi dishwasher. They arranged to send a wheel to a local repairer to fix up the dishwasher. I had to find out where the wheel had got to and found the name of the repairer. He stated that he was too busy to come out at that time as he was very busy with bigger jobs. We told him that we would be overseas for several weeks and would contact him when we arrived...back. When we contacted him, he advised that the job had been cancelled by Tempo. I asked him if he still had the wheel (which he did) and I arranged to pick it up. When I got it home it was the wrong wheel! I contacted Tempo who escalated the complaint for immediate action. That was over a month ago. When I contacted Tempo again, they told me that nothing had been done as their employee had left the company. They asked that I photographed the missing wheel ( a bit tricky) and send it to them. I am waiting for a response. I purchased the dishwasher NINE MONTHS AGO.
Purchased in September 2018 for $350.00.
Got one for an outdoor kitchen, have been really annoyed at how it does not actually wash anything properly. The standard washes don't clean dishes or plates with cheese on them or baked on sauce and everything needs to be washed by hand after. The only thing it washes is glass. Expensive glass washer.
Bought the updated fully integrated dishwasher just over 2 years ago. I have have been very disappointed with it since day one. The dishwasher doesn't wash well leaving some plates and cutlery dirty. Even when the dishes and cutlery are pre rinsed the cutlery they still is not cleaned.
Purchased in August 2016 at Forest Lake for $498.00.
So far no problem washes good
I am satisfied with setting, once you work it out
I do rinse dishes before I put them in washer
Dishwasher never clogged up yet
Good money for value highly
Recomend 4 stars

Never washed dishes very well
Even when new, it never washed dishes very well. I would often find washing powder on glassware (tried multiple brands of powder) and some things just not being washed much at all. Sometimes it worked OK and other times it just seemed to bake dirt onto dishes. The only setting that stood a chance of being effective was the 'intensive' one.
After about a year of light use, it started to show error messages. Now I just wash dishes by hand because it's easier than stacking, unstacking and rewashing everything in this junky dishwasher.
My dinner plates are 10' 260mm they stop the sprayer from spinning. I dont think thats a large plate and what's the point of a dish washer too small for your dishes. Same goes for anything greater then 9' in the cutlery caddy. Pots and bakeware no chance. Other then that, work fine.
washes well but poor drawer organisation
Had a Stirling some years ago, then bought a Bosch, which for the price was disappointing - bought this this year for $299 - great value as to performance but what really annoys me is the upper drawer is too low and we cannot put normal size dinner plates in without fouling the spinning water dispenser. Our previous Stirling had a better layout and i cant believe who designed this one! Maybe they didn't use dinner plates.
A bit disappointed
I have tried a couple of the settings - one that shows a glass and a small plate only ran for about 4 minutes. The next did a kind of rinse only. I use the Eco cycle that runs for nearly two hours and it is okay but I usually have to rewash a couple of things. I always hand rinse things first and don't put anything in with dried on food on it.
On the positive side it is very quiet.
I'm not at all satisfied with this purchase. Dishwasher doesn't clean dishes, regardless of brand of powder used and setting chosen.
We rinse everything before loading to get all food off crockery & cutlery, but this makes no difference.
This is our second aldi dishwasher, I wouldn't buy another. Price was the only plus.
Pretty good dishwasher
We got this dishwasher from aldi for our new house and it works pretty good it’s quite big and has a lot of space. I love that the cutlery space can come out and you can put your cutlery away easily. We put ours on eco and it takes about 127 mins which is a long while if you need something fast but at least you know it’s clean. I love that it’s a 3 star energy and 4.5 star water saving. I would recommend this to my family or friends we are happy with our purchase considering the price was great.

Questions & Answers
I purchased a 58140 dishwasher from ALDI 2 years ago for a rental property. The tenants say it never cleaned properly. Now the top and bottom spray arms don't work. We had it inspected and the repairman said that the parts are no longer available even though it is not yet out of warranty. Can I take it back for a refund?
Probably not a refund but contact Aldi head office they will arrange a replacement. Crap dishwashers.
First aldi dishwasher I bought never cleaned properly, they have their 60 day return policy otherwise they send you to the manufacturer. But Aldi and Kogan have been called out just of late for doing that as I believe under the consumer act, they have to take the product back if it doesn't work. So if you got your receipt, stand your ground obviously you don't want it repaired (no spare parts) you want either a new one or your money back. Sounds like your dishwasher like my first one was built on a Friday arvo.
Which basket, upper or lower, to use for a half load?
Which basket do I use if I want to do a half load? It does not tell you this in the manual.
