This dishwasher is so quiet you won't even know it's on. It also cleans the dirtiest dishes with ease and keeps you from scrubbing the baked on goodness. The only negative thing I can say is when the cycle is done, it beeps insistently unless you open the door. Probably I should read the manual and find out how to over ride that. Cleaning Time A little long, on "normal" but the "quick clean" is efficient enough and seems to work just as well. Durability I've only had it for less than a month, but so far i'm happy.
