Is it okay to buy a used dishwasher?
« on: March 08, 2017, 11:09:50 PM »
We want to purchase a dishwasher and are willing to purchase a used  "like new" one.  A salesperson at a used appliance store said it isn't a good idea to purchase one on Craigslist even if it is advertised as "like new" or "hardly used" because they can leak.  I don't know if he was just saying that so we would buy one from his store or if this is actually true.

My advise to you is to buy a new dishwasher in your price range so you have at least a years warranty. You don't know what your getting into with a used dishwasher. Parts alone are pricey. O0

I would advise against buying a used dishwasher unless you can actually see it running to be sure there are no leaks and it runs a complete cycle.

Hello,
I  bought a used dishwasher a year ago, it is working well till now.
So i suggest you to buy used one because it costs so less than a new one.
