We've been using our new dishwasher for a month now and after trying different settings, etc, I am happy to say this is a fantastic dishwasher. I didn't understand what other reviewers meant when they said how clean their dishes were but now I know. Our dishes are clean, dry and sparkling clean. Pots and pans gleam. I was somewhat worried about odor and the pools of water some people, but not most, report. I now have to think it has to do with installation or the water source - we have had no such problems. It's very quiet for our open floor plan and we don't have a problem with plastic not drying - however, we tend to run it after dinner and empty it the next morning. The red light on the floor when it's running is a great feature and the built in leak protection is a big plus. Absolutely love it!
