Great value, especially with a 3year warranty, does a great job cleaning dishes. We use finish tablets and have rinse aid in it
Not the quietest but not noisy either but there is a delay start feature so you can delay the start to do it during the night if you wish, I was going to get a secondhand Bosch, glad I got this one
It couldn't even do the first wash properly. It's turned off completely after 1hr of operation. I tried to turn it on again but keep giving error warning. I returned it to Aldi.

Disappointing after 3 years use
The rubber has come away from the door on the right hand side. I keep putting it back, but it pops out again. Also; there seems to be an awful lot of 'debris' that collects in this spot! Which I never noticed in any of my other dishwashers..(maybe I didn't notice?)
The filter needs to be scrubbed after just about every wash. I can't remember doing it that often before. And there's only 2 of us.
Very bad machine motor ok but not all plastic and top draw and fittings
Pensioner 70 -10 months top draw to buy doesn't fit properly 2 years I bought top spray holder and wall fitting cant fit a drawer is dropping down very bad
The Washer is good until you get the E4 (possible solution)
I got the E4 Error with this washer after 2 weeks of use (so about 7 times).
After trying everything (looking at drains etc) nothing was wrong. however one of the following resolved my issue (when i took the bottom tray out):
1) A random clip/cover was in the filter. After some investigation, i found out that the clip/cover fell off the inside front right side of the washer. This left a HUGE hole. I believe when the Washer was on, water would go into this hole and cause a leak. For the life of me, i dont know the purpose of the clip/cover, but...
Was perfect to begin with, but needs regular thorough cleaning or the dishes come out with grit all over them!
We still love our aldi sterling dishwasher, but find unlike other brands it requires more regular thorough cleaning of the base components, uses more rinse aid and we have to use only the top 2 highest washes for things to come out perfectly clean the first time.
Worked great. For two months.
This dishwasher was awesome for the first two months. Dishes came out immaculate. Now, it takes two loads to even have a chance of cleaning the dishes. Waste of money
Great dishwasher for a small price
We purchased the ALDI dishwasher mainly for the price. $299 and 3 year warranty. All the others were only 1 year warranty. Works well does the job. The stainless steel is easy to keep clean.
3 months old and we can't get through a full cycle
This dishwasher hasn't fully worked since we installed it. Initially, we thought it was our poor read of the manual or wrong Program, but finally stood there and watched from the start to where is "peeped" and lost all power. Opened it up and found the water just starting to get warm, not hot yet. For some time after this event, it's impossible to get any response, but after some power breaker cools down, you can restart it, until it reaches the same point.
We haven't yet reached out to aftersales, yet but that starts early next week, The quality of this machine seems to be very Hit or Miss. Please read the other reviews.
Installed and leaked water straight away
As soon is was run for the first time it started leaking water from the front right hand corner. Initially thought this was due to it not being level, turns out if was just faulty straight our of the box.
Dont waste your money, only lasted 8 months. Warranty was a waste of time. Will never buy this brand again.
Easy to use, never clogged up, and dishes always come out lovely and clean, but stopped working after 8 months, warranty was a waste of time as no one ever got back to me

Best dishwasher till today
I love Aldi and their product. But this dishwasher is the best ever I bought in my life. My wife’s life goes easy after this. Even my friend is going to buy the same.
Purchased in April 2020 for A$350.00.
Used twice and returning,
3hours for eco wash to find dirty dishes, quite noisey, suprisingly small inside considering its 16 piece... Had to wash everything again, eco wash that takes 3 hours, how's that eco......
Didn't even last 6 months!!!
This dishwasher started off working and good, but then in the fifth month it flooded and a light started flashing on where the glassware symbol is. I rang for it to be looked at which is what the booklet says, only to have two guys come out several weeks later. They said that they din't really know why it's not working. A about a week after their visit, I received an email saying that they are going to refund me the money because it's not fixable. I asked for a new one but the woman on the other end of the line said that it can't be replaced because they don't have them in stock any longer. I will get my money back and now I have to get rid of a faulty dishwasher.. So not happy with the product and the whole process.
Pleased - so far
Took a gamble as I had previously purchased a sterling product from Aldi which I returned very disappointed . However have used this dishwasher daily for over a week and have found it washes well. I have large dining plates that fitted well in bottom shelf. ( Top tray height adjustable). Quiet machine. It doesn’t totally dry as much as I would like but I haven’t tried the “extra drying” function yet. It was easy to install as it replaced a very old dishwasher. Had to purchase an extension hose for drainage to fit my plumbing. All good - so far.
Dishwasher a couple of months over warranty, company wont repair,replace.
I am very unhappy for this item that has hardly been used to have e7 error. And not work. Would have been better off spending more money on a more well knoen brand
Terrible inside dishwasher
Forever cleaning the scum inside the dishwasher. I suppose you get what you pay for. Never again will I buy this dishwasher. I'm sick of cleaning the inside of it
Purchased in October 2014.

Very happy with it so far
Bought it to replace a basic "entry level" Heller model (which served me good 10 years, but the racks started to rust and the rinse aid to leak). Got it at a $50 discount (for $249) and quite happy with it so far. Big improvement on the Heller one (And funny enough also cheaper). Comes with many more useful functions such as "half load", "delayed start" (for those with solar panels or night time electricity tariff), height adjustable top shelf. Also love the light indicator to tell you whether the cycle is still in process (sounds obvious but y...ou just couldn't tell with the Heller one!). My only dislikes are: upper rack is not so great for glasses (they tend to fall over, unless you prop them against cups or the edge); the door closing mechanism seems a bit flimsy compared to the Heller model; noise level (similar to other "entry level" machines)
Good entry level dishwasher
Works well, although sometimes Eco wash doesnt clean everything so you have to use Heavy setting which will clean things. Also you have to leave door open to dry dishes, but this doesn't bother us. Overall good for the price point as its cheaper than normal. The cutlery sits on the top rack which is a bit too close to the cup rack, so large cups and wine glasses need to sit at the bottom. We use finish tablets... haven't tried other brands.
Reasonable but went wrong after three months. Aldi didn't want to know. Warranty useless.
Dishwasher worked for three months then went wrong, giving out incredibly loud grinding noise that scared us. Contacted Tempo (who do Aldi's servicing in Australia) but technician, who arrived a week later couldn't fix it. Technician even refused point blank, to remove shoes before entering my house due to 'insurance'. Tempo promised a full refund but a week later it still hadn't been actioned, so I phoned Tempo and spoke with Kim, the Supervisor, who promised me faithfully she would personally ensure the refund went through. Six days later the...refund still hasn't been done. Do NOT trust Tempo and, personally I'd never buy white goods from Aldi ever again because their warranty means nothing. Time to get onto credit card company. December 11th 2019 Update: Useless. Then so called 'refund' arranged by Tempo (Aldi's service company) never put through. This dishwasher lasted a few weeks before sounding like it was going to explode. I contacted Tempo who sent service people around but they couldn't fix the fault. Service company then advised me to just keep using the dishwasher despite hearing the cacophony the machine was making! I asked them to put that 'advice' in writing to me. Unsurprisingly they refused to but suddenly Tempo decided to give me a full refund. However, over two weeks later the refund still hasn't arrived in my bank.Tempo state the money's been put into my bank but it definitely hasn't. This is a nightmare. Tempo seem to believe I will simply give up and walk away. MY ADVICE to any Aldi customers is do not purchase any ALDI product unless you are fine with being lied to and robbed. NEVER again will I buy from them.
