This Is A Perfect Piece Of Rubbish!
I guess I don't need to type too much more because everyone here just mentioned all the problem. I got this machine when I bought the house. I guess the previous owner gave up on using it and went back to hand wash. Noisy like a steam train at your kitchen, upper spin arm cracked and leaked, dirt too easy to accumulate at the door seal, 50% of times it leave dirty dishes. Take forever to run. Move on, get something better for you money.

Disastrous! Run a mile!
This machine is brand new and has already cost us a lot of trouble and money. We bought it to go into a new kitchen. After the plumber had installed it, he ran a short cycle. No problem. A few days later, I ran a normal program. No problem. Three days later, our painters who were finishing off the new kitchen reported significant water damage that had ruined their new work and swollen the timber work around our double sliding glass doors.
The Haier technician took a video of a leaking tap (that hadn't been leaking when we reported the damage) ...
Nobody wants to fix it
what a bargain we thought, tent sale at Harvey Norman in Oxley ran well for the first couple of months, then it started to smell, washed with dishwasher cleaner as directed, ok for a week then same thing.looked into it a little further and found that the sludge under yes under the door seal was to blame. then a few months ago it started stopping in mid cycle, that mystically stopped, then it wasn't drying the dishes and last night turned it on and it turned itself off after 20 seconds tried again, same result. opened it up to find that it had n...ot previously emptied. took it too Two local repairers one said it wasn't worth the effort , the second agreed with me that the board had probably blown and it would be cheaper to go and buy a new dishlex as they were far more reliable and a better buy for your buck Will not buy one of these again, what worries me is that i was informed that this company had been purchased by Fisher and Pykle stainless steel finish bottom shelf contiuouly falling off runners. sludge build up at base of door seal
Wish I knew about this website 2 years ago. I look at our Haier monstrosity every day wishing it to die. It's so noisy I wait until we go out to turn it on. Even then it's basically a waste of time since it pretty much only steams the dishes instead of washing them as it's title implies. It takes 1.5 hours for a normal cycle. It doesn't have a pause option. Dishwashing powder sticks and turns solid in the dispenser. The only good thing about it is that it has served as the prime example of what not to buy and what I should be looking for next time.
Everything is wrong with it.
Terrible would never buy again!!!!
I would never buy this brand ever again i was more than disappointed. It had no manual in the box, had dints and scratches when taken out of the box. Did not Work when we got it home!!!! I have nothing good to say about this item. only good for a Display house.
waste of money
Installed a Haier HDW100SCT dishwasher two years ago work. It performed ok for first 6 -12 months. Over the last 12 months its perforamced has detoriated and over teh last 6 months it has been far less than satsifactory. We have now tired of rewashing most items that were washed by the Haier and no longer use and it now it just takes up space. I think my Haier dishwasher has been a waste of money.
Price and stainless steel
It does not perform as a dishwasher should
I have owned and used many dishwashers but this one is by far the worst. Moved into an apartment which had a brand new one, but it is slow and does not wash or dry well. Even coffee cups come out with marks still in them. I would not recommend it. I'm sure it's cheap but it's worth spending more on a better make.
Looks quite neat
Cheaply made, takes 1h30m for a normal wash and still doesn't wash or dry satisfactorily.
I bought this about 3 years ago. It's still going but a few times I have thought it was ready for the dump. The first problem I had was the top washing arm had a little bit of plastic break off it resulting in it leaking water in the wrong place and not turning. I rang to get a replacement but was told the thing would be over $80, for a bit of plastic. I used a twisty tie and fixed it myself. It's been working good since.
The next problem was water wasn't draining. I thought the pump was gone but after days and days of putting hot wate...r, vinegar and baking soda through it seemed to come back to normal. Must have clogged somewhere. The most recent problem was after the Brisbane floods. The dishwasher didn't go under water but upon returning home after 10 days the 'flood switch' had activated. It wouldn't work and started tripping the mains power safety switch. After searching on the net and asking around it was suggested I tip the thing on it's side to get the water out and it will reset. I tipped it about 45dgrees to the left and water came out. After that it worked fine again, YIPPEEE A lot of people have mentioned all the plastic corroding and falling apart. I haven't had this problem. The whole time I have never used the chemical dishwashing detergents. I have tried the more natural ones. Most don't work well in this dishwasher but the two brands that really clean well in this dishwasher is Method brand dishwasher tablets (Woolworths only) and Coles Green choice tablets. I most always us the heavy cycle for a better clean. Yes, the cycle takes forever to end. I have never had a new dishwasher before so can't compare it to any. Before this I only ever used an 80's dishlex dishwasher. I think they washed better because this used more water.
Super little package
It has worked like a dream since it was purchased.
Never a problem, has had hundreds of loads for our family of six and not missed a beat.
Had a flood switch issue once but tilt to left it's great.
Only thing is it is on the noisy side. overall very good though, very glad we got it.
Reliable. inexpensive. heaps of variations available in load distribution
Noisier than other models
Consumer affairs shouldn't allow this machine to be sold in Australia. Calling this thing a 'dishwasher' is stretching the truth. I have given it one star because there isn't the option of negative stars, and I wanted to make sure my rating showed how dismal this machine is.
Thank-you productreview.com.au. You provide a much better service than 'Choice'. I bought my Bosch washing machine based on the reviews here and it has been fantastic. I put this review in to do my part for what I think is a great consumer service you are offering.
After reading Haier reviews both in Aus and the UK I'm thinking that we were lucky getting 4 years use out of it. You do get what you pay for (or don't get what you don't pay for is probably more apt). The dishwasher died during the week, basically melting itself from the inside, and if our smoke alarm didn't detect the melting plastics then I think it might have taken out the whole house. The toxic smoke billowing through the house was disgusting. Every item that was in the dishwasher at the time has to be thrown out as it was all covered in a...plastic film that couldn't be removed and was possibly hazardous to health. So we lost the money we threw at the dishwasher, servicing and about that again on new crockery and cutlery. Last year I had to have it serviced because the hinges on the door broke - after 3 service calls (or should I call them episodes of Fawlty Towers) I ended up fixing it myself! My advice - stay away from Haier - considering the life of their products and issues with service they are in fact very expensive products. Not a lot to say here. It was cheap and worked for a few years. After sales service is non-existent. Cheaply made. Gave out a burning chemical smell for the first 2 months. After 4 years it died a spectacular death nearly burning my house down!
It cleans better than my previous top brand dishwasher, and the cycle is shorter too. I load it with really dirty dishes and pans and it does a great job. I recommend it to anyone who wants a basic dishwasher without any frills that cleans well and is simple to operate.
Good value for money. Washes well and cleans everything without pre-rinsing. Simple to operate and had a cancel program mode, which is very useful.
It's a bit noisy.
Worst heap of crap and the 1300 number is the same and the warranty is not worth having always read the fine print.I will never purchase this brand again.
The Price is the only good thing about this unit
I useed it 10 about ten times and it broke down and you guessed it try and talk to the service people is like talking to the dead.
If i really hated someone I would give the dishwasher to them and go buy a dishwasher from a decent retailer. I bought ours from Barrys recliffe who provided the worst customer service that i have come across. They also refused to refund a product that does not work (as required by law) I am hoping to renovate 3-4 properties in the next year and may have gone with Barry's redcliffe if they were half decent. Less than half decent, they will never see me again. Do not under any circumstance deal with Barry' Redcliffe and do not buy a Haier/Gianni...product unless you like products that don't work and won't fix a problem or refund your money. It looks ok, but is a little cheap looking There is litterally nothing to like...loud as hell, no delay funcion, cyles last forever, the dishes are not washed or dried propery even after a cyle that lasts for over 2 hours.
Don't bother - even if you think you just need something cheap to do the job - don't bother - you will hate it - your tenants will hate it - and you will get non stop calls to fix it.
Not a lot. Its so light I could throw it pretty far off our balcony.
Noisy. Poor racks limit the stacking capacity. Stank for 8 weeks from new from bad chemical smell. Bottom rotor fouled against the heater element making a clunk every time. Cycles are long. Very basic functions. Bottom shelf gets caught in door space.
If you want a cheap, basic dishwasher for a house you plan to sell, or you don't expect/need/want the product to last more than a year, go crazy and buy one of these!
It was cheap and basic to use
*The inside of the door near the base rusted after less than a year.
*It does not dry very well.
*Dishes smell funny unless we do pre-rinse folled by a heavy wash.
*Light wash or glass wash only leaves things looking spotty or milky.
*Suddenly stopped working after 9 months with 3 beeps, a pause then 3 beeps,another pause etc ....looked it up i...
We are in the older age bracket therefore could not afford an expensive dishwasher. We purchased extra warranty to have it covered for 5 years all up. The after sales service from Endeavour Refrigeration in Brisbane is apalling and there is no back up support from the Haier 1300 number. When our dishwasher was working properly it was great but when it needed fixing - forget it the service is atrocious.
I found it washed well and dryed well, it did what it was supposed to do.
The pump burnt out after 18 months. 3-4 months after that the heating element went.
In twleve months i have spent hundreds on this machine, i have done maybe ten washes then lumped the box hundreds of kilometres to be repaired! the pump! the heating element and now thick smoke!! so what do i do? let it burn my house down? GREAT!!
costs a packets in repairs!!
This company is rubbish AVOID them like the plague. They have no care whatsoever for the end user. Repairer stated they would never use haier in their home. That says it all.
the price was reasonable 'INITIALLY'watch out it doesnt burn your house down!!
the machine caught fire!! damage to kitchen..dishwasher write off!!
This was 2nd problem with this machine since new in September 2007
"Service" from haier is an absolute joke. They give you the run around, the phone drops out, no responses to emails.
I finally spoke to the new "customer care...
A piece of junk and bad customer service to boot. Never cleaned properly, never worked properly. Frustrating and a waste of time. Stay away!!!
nothing. the stainless steel exterior?? thats it.
Everything. this is the worst new appliance i have EVER bought. Never worked properly from the word go. Doesn't clean, doesn't start, doesn't rinse, sometimes doesn't even stop!! Had the 'assigned' technicians over three times and they were hopeless as well and finally had to take the thing away to test it. Three weeks later still waiting to hear back fro...
