This dishwasher came with our house when we bought it in May 2012. In the time I have been using it, I have been very unsatisfied with its cleaning ability. We have hard water so there are spots and white residue left on everything. I have tried using rinse aid, and this seems to have no effect on the spots. The dishwasher does hold a fair amount of dishes. It also cleans my pots and pans fairly well. I do a fair amount of pre-rinsing and washing before putting them in however. I have had to be careful with the placement of my sons sippy cups however. In my first week of using the dishwasher, I melted a couple of his sippy cup lids because they slipped through both racks while it was washing. Overall this is a ok dishwasher, I like that my dishes get sanitized. And it is easier than washing everything by hand.
