Granted I have had this dishwasher less than a month but I am having trouble getting the dishes clean with it. I have tried many different ways to stack it and I still have dirty dishes after it has been run. Noise Level This dishwasher is quiet. I frequently have to feel the front to make sure it is running. Cleaning Time Because the dishes come out dirty I run it on tough scrub. This cycle takes about 2 hours and the dishes still come out dirty. Loading Flexibility It is nice that I can raise and lower the top rack but it is not otherwise very flexible in the ways you can arrange the dishes. Also I need to purchase a second silverware basket because the one it came with barely holds any silverware. Performance I don't like having dirty dishes after running it on the tough scrub cycle which is about 2 hours long. Design It is lovely in my kitchen. I do have a hard time checking the cycles because the controls are along the top of the door. Durability I have only had the item a month.
