Nothing cleans properly especially the cutlery
The cutlery rack at the top is a terrible idea, the cutlery almost never comes out clean and needs to be washed by hand, even when pre rinsed.
I’ve tried different dishwasher powders but nothing works. I would not recommend this machine and would never buy again
Garbage would rate lower if possible
In house I brought. Doesn't clean properly, lightly soiled plates I have scrubbed nearly clean before putting in dishwasher still come out dirty, doesn't dry properly. Terrible layout of racks

Don't waste your money.
I had read poor reviews on this machine prior to purchase. Wish I had listened. Was always average when working, quite flimsy drawers etc and inconsistent cleaning. Died just outside the 2 year warranty. Spent another $320 fixing it only to die again 6 months later. So unimpressed.

Dishwasher has a big capacity and washes well and dries well. Quite quiet. Pretty much perfect. It is easy to load and clean the filter. The controls are intuitive and easy to operate.

Never buy DeLonghi again
Most useless piece of junk that I have the displeasure to own. Wash-Fail, Dry-Fail, Durability - Fail . Machine switches on and off at will. Will stay clear of anything by this manufacturer. Australia must be the dumping ground for bad quality appliances.

Complete Piece of garbage
Had six months , does not wash properly , doesn't dry properly , heat doesnt work . Warranty twice in a month
Free dishwasher come to sunshine coast , free boat anchor . Customer service absolutley disgusting
Purchased in November 2018 for $550.00.
Good value for money. This DW has a door but no faceplate.
1. This DW works well and is well designed.
2. Third tier cutlery tray was initially weird to use but works perfectly.
3. Lots of people have raised the issue of the DW not drying dishes well, this is because you need to turn on the DRY function (second from the right button).
4. Missing door faceplate is a pain as we are finding it difficult to find a cabinet maker to make a panel for the door.
Purchased in June 2019 at The Good Guys Physical store for $535.00.
Very easy to use, surprisingly quiet and great at its job! I can't believe how new and shiny the cutlery, kitchen knives and glassware come out after a cycle. We bought this second hand, and the previous owners (who'd sold their house) raved about it. If the house catches on fire, I'm saving the dishwasher!

Load of rubbish!!!
We brought this dishwasher on the 30/10/2014. So far it has had two repairs on it, burnt out circuit board. Now last night it nearly caught on fire if it wasn't for my sense of smell, the house could've burnt down. Not bloody good enough! The machine should've lasted longer than this. Had to wash cutlery by hand!
This is just not good enough, we brought this machine when we built our new house, package deal, with oven, hotplate and range-hood, hope these items are safe. If we had the dishwasher on and left the house, we would not have a house ...

Best Dish washer we have ever owned
This is far the best Dish Washer we have owned, previous ones were second hand and lasted a few years each but decided to buy New and have warranty. This Delonghi has proved well with the best dirty clean we have ever had. It has a separate slide out top tray for culturally and you can set it for small washers either using top or bottom compartments. Since we don't use it on a daily basis it is often used more so when we Host Dinner Party's. using it on our own with small loads we find the short setting excellent. The only issue I have is setti...ng in the wine glasses, I can't fit them in so they stand up right. But not fussed as they are easy to hand wash. Looking at other reviews I am surprised of the poor scores. However we Purchased a 3 year guarantee and if anything goes wrong we get a complete unit. I would believe that even if this product is discontinued we would be given Brand New unit of it's same value.
Utter waste of money
We bought this dishwasher in Dec 2017 and it does a crap job of drying the dishes, rarely dispenses the powder and does a mediocre job of washing the dishes. We have had it repaired once already for the heat pump back in May this year and have been unable to leave our dishwasher unattended for the past 10 weeks due to it continuously running and not stopping. We have been waiting for 7 weeks for the useless machine to be repaired a 2nd time and are still waiting. We have asked for our money back from The Good Guys with no luck. Worst purchase ever. Do not recommend.
Total piece of crap
Had it for 3 years. Within that time i have had it fixed at least 10 times. Constantly leaks, doesn't clean well. Just spent another $300 on it to get fixed and now leaking again. I think i bought a lemon never again. Could be a reason for it being discontinued..... After service is outrageous.
Stopped working just after its warranty.
Paid $800 for it. It did its job ok. Not the best at drying.
Also you need to manually turn it off after its cycle.
The dishwasher in general feels flimsy.
But last week i came home to find smoke coming from the back of it and it's only a few months past its 2 year warranty.
So i opened it up to find the problem, and found nothing just a blowen fuse which is soldered to the main PC board. Otherwise there is a handful of screws that hold the whole thing together.
Avoid this machine.
I give it 2 stars as it lasted 2 years.
We purchased this dishwasher for our new home a couple of months ago & I am very happy with it. Very affordable, sleek and easy to use.
It fits normal to plates (which I have had problems in the past with dishwashers not fitting certain size plates)!
Over all definitely recommend, we love it!
I have had this dishwasher for 3 years, and it never satisfied me. Twice sent back for repairs under warranty, it still hardly cleans the dishes, and never dries them. I have replaced it now with a new (different brand). Stupid impulse buy, I will regret for quite a while.

Don't even think about it!!! Terrible
Purchashed for $600 so I should have known it would be bad. You really do get what you pay for. If you want clean dishes make sure you rinse everything to the point of it being clean anyway otherwise be prepared to run the never ending 3 hour cycle (that once took 8 hours) again. I agree with everyone else, the drying function is terrible and it's noisy and inconsistent.
I clean the filter every 2 weeks, run a cleaning tablet cycle every month and use good quality powder. We bought in November 2016 and it was just satisfactory for about a year but now it just continually brings me disappointment and shatters my hopes and dreams. I trusted you Delonghi....you took my money and betrayed my trust. Never again!!!
Not great design
Doesn’t dry dishes very well plates don’t fit in properly meaning spray arms can’t spin to clean would love to change to a different model if could. They cutlery drawer is also very shallow and second shelf you have to lay small plates in flat for the same reason as bottom shelf the spray arm cannot spin as it hit the plates, and after a short time of owning it it already has problems heating the water
Silver waste of money
Cannot tell you how good it is at cleaning dishes. Bought the unit just to modernise kitchen.
After only a few times (no more than 15) of use the On / Off switch started to play up.
You have to change the whole board cost $150.00 without labour.
No favourite features
Stay away from that brand.
Value For Money.
It's not a top dollar dishwasher so I don't expect top dollar results. The manual clearly states that you need to clean the filter & jets regularly (I do it about once a month). If you don't, then yes, it stops working properly. I agree with other users that say that it doesn't dry properly (in normal mode), that's why I turn on the extended drying function every wash - it adds 5 minutes to the cycle.
Second dishwasher works well
I bought the first dishwasher and the water did not pump away. On many occasions a repairer attended, but at no point was the dishwasher ever repaired - just assessed. Finally, Delonghi replaced the machine under warranty. The replacement works perfectly. There must have been a fault with the other one. Despite the initial experience, I recommend the dishwasher. It is cheap, but it is functional. I found Delonghi to be responsive, but found the Concierge program from the Good Guys to be a time absorbing waste of money.
Questions & Answers
Water is not heating and the cycles take longer than it is supposed to (i.e. over 3 hours for a 2:50 cycle) - is that likely to be related - dishes are not being cleaned well due to the no hot water issue I think.
I think this needs an engineer's call out and isn't something the user can deal with. Sorry
I have a Delonghi dishwater brought in Aprl 2018; It comes up with an E1 error. I have checked water and the filters in taps and pressure is good, But still comes up with the same error
We have an unused dishwasher for 2 years (was new) Now starting to use it and it only does the 2hours wash. Refuse to do any other setting...
Can not change the settings at all.
