Handwashing vs. Dishwasher

Our dishwasher has been a mainstay of our home from the very beginning.
However, a few months back we noticed it was beginning to show it's age
and this past week the pump washed it's last wash.
The debate is on as to replace the pump or upgrade to a new dishwasher.

But I told hubby there was no rush. I could hand wash our dishes.
After all, it's only the two of us at home now and we both work all day,
I don't bake and cook to the extent I used to 
when the kids were home
and I was a stay-at-home mom.
So, in reality washing the dishes doesn't take long at all.

The benefit is there are always dishes in the cupboard
and we don't run out of cutlery.
It took us so long to get the dishwasher full enough to run
that running out of cutlery was a problem

Some other benefits of handwashing is that hubby helps
dry the dishes in the evening and it has been
so relaxing to wash the dishes, chat with hubby
and enjoy the beautiful view of the backyard out the window.

What about you?
Do you prefer handwashing or the dishwasher?
