The Whirlpool Quiet Partner II lives up to its name. It delivers the quietest performance in it's price range. This dishwasher had been solid and consistent since we had it installed. We barely have to rinse the dishes before loading them. The glasses come out clean! Locating the silverware basket in the door makes the best use of space. The only downfall encountered has been the hook holding the silverware basket closed. It sometimes comes undone. Noise Level Makes very little noise. Cleaning Time You can set it for a short run or a long run. Loading Flexibility Silverware in door makes the best user of the bottom rack. The top track has excellent clearance for larger items and tall glasses. Performance Dishes come clean everytime. No more "dishwasher cruddies" in the bottom of our glasses and this is without much rinsing. You can't load it wrong. I never have to worry about anything being rattled around. Design Plain front doesn't stand out. The flat front with flush handle helps with our small space. Durability Has been solid since we got it.
