Q & As

John Lewis JLDWS1207 Dishwasher, Stainless Steel 3.9 5 7 7
Very happy with this item this item is exactly what we needed. our old machine was integral and I wanted a standalone. It works well, make sure you read the setup instructions properly, so you set the salt etc correctly. I put a deioniser on the pipe to soften our water as it's quite hard where we live, that usually helps with lifespan. It does all that i need, and if it's just plates and cups, the 30 minute cycle is perfect. I also find this machine pretty quiet for a dishwasher, then main noise is when it releases the tablet, but thats not too bad. I'd definitely recommend this item and it comes with 3 years warranty which is great for peace of mind. the delivery guys were also excellent. a word of caution, they offered to leave mine in the packaging as they weren't fitting and i said no as i didn;t want to have to dispose of the polystyrene etc. When they unpacked it there were 2 dents in it, 1 in the side and one in the back. they would not have known that, due to how it was packed. they immediately brought it to my attention and offered to remove it or refund me. As it was going into a slot between cupboards, I opted to keep it and take the refund, which was reimbursed within a week. 16 December 2014
Really. Great product This product is fantastic. Having no knowledge of plumbing found it really easy to fit. Has loads of useful features and you can set the water hardness. Really easy to use. My crockery seems to sparkle when it comes out which I absolutly love 14 December 2014
good product that works excellent does its job well remember to read instructions to set water softener and rinse aid. the service that i received from john lewis was truly excellent compared to some others that i could mention. the delivery was excellent they unpacked it took away packaging and placed in the kitchen next to where its going, also very polite makes a pleasant change i would recommend this one 20 September 2014
A few lessons learned & working far If it helps those that have this machine and feel it isn't very good, then please consider these ideas before you sling it. 1 As a sadster, I read the destructions and noticed that you need to turn on the rinse aid function, which we did using a few buttons. It came with it set to OFF 2 Also, it said f you are in a hard water area, like most of the South East, you need to adjust the machine using a few buttons again and so cranked it up to '9' I would not have known any of this if I hadn't read about it and guess what? So far the results are really good. So hope that may help someone, but as sod's law is ever present, it will probably blow up as soon as I send this thing. JL staff were all helpful with a few niggles we had at first and so one good turn deserves another from us. 06 September 2014
Poor Design Usually find JL products v good quality. This machine has a number of design issues. Doesn't clean thoroughly, even when on intense cycle. Half of the space on the top basket is unusable due to poor design. The collapsible rack on the on the bottom basket doesn't stay in position. Position of cutlery basket reduces the number of larger plates that can be accommodated. 10 August 2014
Not as good as it should be Not as impressed as I expected to be considering that it is a John Lewis Dishwasher. I can only really use the 'intense' setting since the other settings do not clean the dishes as it should, and I even rinse them before I put them in. If I was buying another machine it would have to be a well known brand, sadly. The door does not always seem to close properly and it seems a bit flimsy in construction. 20 February 2014
Does what it says on the tin Perfectly good smart looking model which works very efficiently and produces excellent results even on the short 30 minute programme. Happy to recommend as representing good value within its price range and efficiently delivered by JL . 03 December 2013
