Did you know the first reliable dishwasher, which was handpowered, was invented in 1887 by Josephine Cochrane with help from George Butters?
It was unveiled in 1893 and was reportedly invented because her servants were chipping her fine china.
It wasn't until 1924 when William Howard Livens invented the first dishwasher, in England may we add, which was small enough and suitable for domestic use. Many of his designs are still seen in dishwashers today such as a front door for loading, and a rotating sprayer.
It was during the postwar boom of the 1950's that dishwashers started to become successful after they were marketed with standardised sizes and shapes to fit underneath the kitchen countertop.
Here's a great video which demonstrates exactly how a dishwasher works and the different stages of a typical cycle:

This is the second time that I have used Glotech for appliance repair and I have to say that I am once again impressed. The engineer came on time and as arranged and was able to give an assessment of the the problem and a costing. Parts were ordered and a different engineer (fully briefed) came and completed the work. Quick, courteous and efficient.
I found Glotech's service to be great. They came out, diagnosed the problem with the oven, sourced the spair part and fitted it within the hour. The oven is now good as new and it didn't cost me the earth. Finally, a service provider i can trust!
