Dishwasher works great! Noise Level It is very quiet compared to my old dishwasher. I don't hear it unless I'm actually standing in the kitchen. Cleaning Time I don't really have anything to compare it to, but it seems to do the job in a reasonable time. Loading Flexibility Lots of options for loading various dishes. Performance Cleans everything well, but I don't leave stuck on food sit for long, so I can't say how it would clean that. Only issue is that it seals do well, that if you leave wet dishes sit for several days, you may see mold growing on them, and you will need to rinse that off before running the dishwasher. To prevent that from happening, you need to unload clean dishes within a day or two, or open the door, and if dirty dishes will sit for several days before running the machine, I just leave the door open once in awhile when I'm not in the room. Design Options for top shelf allow individual adjustments as needed. Bottom also has spaces that allow for larger items. Overall, it handles a large capacity. Durability I've had this for almost 2 years and have never had any problems with it.
