Will never buy Westinghouse products again

published

Bought a Westinghouse WSF6608KXA for a kitchen renovation. The unit broke only after 4 months of light use. Keep on overloading the circuit breaker. I called service line and the staff was very rude. Their offer was to get the unit repaired somewhere else though it's obviously under warranty. I gave them a chance as recommended by friends but I should never give them my business as the after sales are a terrible experience. Never again will buy a Westinghouse products.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $1,000.

Frustrating to use

published

The quality of this machine is below expectation. The lower tray runs off the track every single time and we have to lift it back on with a tray full of dishes, pots and pans.
The top tray is not tall enough for taller glasses and does not facilitate it very well rested on angle like a wine glass. Small bowls won't fit properly and neither does plastic containers. The cutlery tray is orientated in a way that if you have knives, forks and spoons in, you have trouble loading other things like spatula, flippers, peelers etc.
irrespective of price, the machine is not designed well, and we'd be better paying more for a more practical machine. 2 star.

Two weeks of ownership and its broken waiting on a new "Board"

published

After two weeks this Premium Dishwasher WSF6608KXA has NO POWER. Completely dead, useless. $1000 paperweight waiting for the local repairer to contact us with the new part and arrange to disrupt my day to install it. After two weeks you wouldn't expect this, on further investigation seems to be quite common for Westinghouse Dishwashers to blow the main Board (usually after a couple of years not weeks). Maybe change suppliers or get better Q&A. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. Will not purchase or recommend this brand.

Worked well for 2yrs till electrical fault occurred. Dishwasher now replaced with new one. Thank you!

published

Worked well for 2years then it stopped working and was tripping the RCD switch in the meterbox. Tested it by plugging it in to another socket but was still tripping the circuit. Not sure what's wrong with it and how long the warranty is on this machine.

Update 26.11.21
Electrolux has since replaced the dishwasher with a new machine. Thank you for standing by your warranty and brand. Very grateful!

Aaaaaarrrrgggghhhhh

published

This is the most frustrating dishwasher I have ever had. The control panel is too sensitive and the lightest touch starts it off and I can never seem to cancel the cycle or reset it once this happens. It always runs on the 2.5 hr cycle when this happens. Extremely wasteful and frustrating. The baskets are really flimsy too. My large dinner plates don’t fit in the bottom rack.
Also it’s only a few months old and some of the dividers in the the cutlery are already breaking.

Really disappointing and would definitely not recommend this to anyone.

Good dishwasher, with just one negative aspect

published

We've always bought Westinghouse dishwashers and found them to be good value, easy to use and and washed our dishes efficiently. This new one is good as well except for one thing: the ridges in the cutlery tray at the top of the dishwasher are much too narrow for all except the most skinny of table knives. This means you have to find a spot to lay the knives flat on the tray, underneath or in between other cutlery. They won't be getting washed on both sides evenly, I think. Forks, spoons etc. go in fine but I would have preferred the cutlery basket like the earlier models.

Doesn’t fit standard dinner plates, very disappointed.

published

Doesn’t fit standard size dinner plates, if adjust the top shelf to be higher to fit plates, top shelf doesn’t fit glasses. So we will be hand washing either plates or glasses which defeats the point. Wish we’d kept our 20 year old dishwasher when renovating our kitchen as it’s better than this brand new but totally impractical one.

Worked fine for 2 weeks then stopped working

published

I bought this brand new, it had been working fine for about 2 weeks (only used a handful of times) then did not turn on. No error code, plug is working fine. So disappointed, these things make me lose faith in the brand. How can a brand new appliance stop working after 2 weeks of use? Technician coming to look at it next week.

Repaired after 2.5 years. Persevere to receive support.

published

We were happy with this dishwasher until it broke just months out of warranty (F9 fault).

The service centre was initially unhelpful but, through the mediation function provided through productreview, a more helpful company representative reached out and arranged for my dishwasher to be serviced at no cost. I didn't need to wait weeks for a technician to be available and the dishwasher was repaired in 8 minutes. This is a good and fair outcome since dishwashers should last much longer.

My belief that Westinghouse is a quality brand has been restored.

Faulty from the start

published

This dishwasher has a problem with shorting out mid cycle. It has been faulty from brand new. Have seen many other people complain about the same fault on this model. Must be a manufacturing fault.

The paint is chipping of of the the top of dishwasher after only 6 months. Does anyone know if there is a touch up paint available for this model. Dark stainless Steel. TIA.

It will be covered under warranty, the techs come out and replace the panel for free and so they should, it’s not very high quality. I have 40yr old dishwasher with less chips on panel.
