A nice sized dishwasher for small spaces, as it's only 24 inches wide. Cleans dishes well and you don't need to do a lot of pre washing the dishes. Noise Level The dish washer runs pretty quiet, and the only noise I have heard was when it was filling and emptying into the drain connected under the sink. It does have a slight swishing sound as the water sprays inside the washer but other than that it is pretty quiet. Cleaning Time The cleaning time is satisfactory and only takes about an hour from start to finish with drying time. The dishes are HOT when they are done! Loading Flexibility The washer loads well and can hold a lot of dishes in the trays and racks, but it's best to not overload the washer as it could miss a few spots, no matter how good a dishwasher is! Performance The best setting is the long setting for the best wash and using the top brand dish washer powder in the machine. It cleans well unless you put the dishes too close on top of one another then it might miss a spot or two. It cleans greasy items but still you need to scrape dishes well and not leave hunks of food on the plates Design The only flaw I have seen is the finger prints that you may see on the outside since it is stainless steel! Durability The dishwasher is 5 years old and still going strong!
