This is a relatively nice dishwasher I like that it is an energy star dishwasher. It does have some setbacks though. Noise Level Start up it is a little noisy but not unbearable, especially while it is filling up with water. Once it is full, it tends to be less noicy and then it is fine for the rest of the cycle. Cleaning Time Takes 3 hours to wash, and dry. How can a dishwasher be energy star that takes that long? how much electricity is it using? Best to load it up at night and turn it on before going to bed or if you work, turn it on before going to work. Loading Flexibility Hard to put wider serving dishes in There is no flexability in the size of the racks. Although you can move the top rack lower but I have wide bowls I'd like to put in and it isn't possible without taking up a lot of space in the dishwasher Performance Gets them clean just about every time. I love that because my other dishwasher never did. Design Looks nice, however the buttons are under the counter how can you get to them once you shut the door, it's not easy. Durability Seems to be heavy duty. However the top rack seems to be kind of rocky as it moves up and down a little and I'm a little concerned it may fall out of its track but I guess that's the way it is suppose to work.
