I really thought I was getting something when I got this dishwasher, but I was very dissappointed.. It odes not clean very well and sometimes it will not drain out the dirty water. The machine is loud and inconsistance in its performance. It is like a dice game everytime you wash a load of dishes. Noise Level It is very noisy! You don't need to be close to it if you are trying to have a quiet conversation, or watching television in the same room because the dishwasher is going to drown out what you are trying to listen to. Cleaning Time It washes the dishes rather quickly, I think maybe a little too quickly and that is why the dishes aren't always as clean as I would like for them to be. It takes plenty of time on the dry cycle (like it's trying to bake on the food particles you didn't get off) and not near enough on the wash cycle. Loading Flexibility Does not hold a lot of dishes and it will not wash many large sized pans, two if you are lucky and don't have other dishes that are on the large size to go in also.. The racks cannot be rearranged so you have a medium size lower lever and the top that will hold coffee cups and some bowls. Performance Usually when it is all just right it will do a descent job of cleaning you dishes, but that does not happen everytime, more like about half of the time. Design It is just not big enough and you can not rearrange the shelves inside for varying size dishes. Durability It seems to just keep hanging on and washing even if you don't want it to I would really like to get another dishwasher, but this thing will not die.
