...putting things back in for another cycle that didn't get cleaned. Lipstick on glasses, for instance, or the disgusting cycle of dishes that came out filthier than when they went in, because "the water softener ran out of pellets".

Ah, there's the catch. You have an old and/or cheap dishwasher. In which case, you're right, it's useless. Just wash by hand.

My feeling is that if I'm going to have a dishwasher, I'll have one that's good enough to do the job and thereby save me time. So I bought a top-rated one. Minimal scraping beforehand, no rinsing, everything gets clean in one cycle, and oh by the way it saves water.
