Good Afternoon.

I have a question. Does anyone out there know of any dishwashers that are good in a low flow environment?? I recently made the mistake of purchasing the Maytag Neptune clothes washer (on the advice of the salesperson) and have just found out that it has a timer to fill that can not be adjusted. Sometimes my clothes just don't get washed. Sometimes it shuts itself off in the middle of the fill (because time has run out). I'm stuck with this appliance and I don't want to make the same mistake with a new dishwasher (which my family desperately needs). Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks, in advance, for your posts.

Most dishwashers do not have electronic controls which monitor/control the fill like your Maytag Neptune (and many other front load washers) does.

A dishwasher water valve's 'flow washer' can either be changed or removed to increase the flow rate into the dishwasher or on some brands (some Frigidaire dishwasher models of for example - maybe others), there is a increased flow rate water valve which can be installed in place of the original.

There are however limits to how slow the fill can be as all dishwashers ASAIK use a 'time fill' method to determine how long to allow water to enter for a fill. Which means the water valve opens for a set (non-changeable) length of time and whatever amount of water enters during that time is what is used for the wash.
