We have had this dishwasher for about seven months. This is the third dishwasher we have had in 15 years. I hope it lasts longer than the others. This model has a stainless steel interior which I really like. Previous models had rubber melt and it looked like there was mold inside, yuck! So the inside is easy to keep clean. It is so quiet that you have to be standing right by it to know that it is even on. That is one reason we got this is because our kitchen is connected to our family room, and you don't want to have to yell to talk over the dishwasher. This is a large dishwasher and holds plenty of dishes. It does not have a dryer so plan time for the dishes to dry. We usually turn it on at night before bed or first thing in the morning and have had no problem. Sometimes we have to dry some of the dishes before putting them away but that is not a big deal. Most everything comes out really clean. One exception was when my daughter put a knife in that had peanut butter on it without rinsing it off, there was a little residue. You do need to use a jet dry product to help the dishes from spotting. The one down side is that it is stainless steel outside and you need to keep wiping it down to keep it looking good. Noise Level So quiet you don't even know it is on. Loading Flexibility The tines fold down so you can maneuver your dishes the way that you need. Durability So far so good.
