    I have a new 2510SXT myself. Only "settings complaint" thus far is that it doesn't keep clock-time very well. Seems to gain about a minute every two days.

    Arrgh! I see what I did wrong: I removed those little open-ended brass sleeves, mistakenly thinking they were closed-end plugs. I just found where I had cast them aside, so can reinstall today....

    Same thing happened to my Culligan Medalist. I had no confidence with a DIY repair job, and the Culligan guy stuck me $300 to fix it (lamented elsewhere here). No more Culligan for me.

    Ready to get a new softener

    My 7-year-old Culligan no longer softens the water, so I'm going to scrap and replace it. I'm not dealing with Culligan again because of the way they overcharged me on a repair.

    A salesman told me that U.S. dishwashers come with garbage disposers, while European ones don't. That's why I'm trending away from Bosch--unless you think garbage disposers in D/Ws are overrated?
