after more then 2 hr. cycle my dishes and silverware still aren't dried, I find I have to hand dry most of it and that's without emptying it for 24 hr. I was told since its Eco friendly it uses less power so the items don't fully dry. I wish I would have got the one with a dial instead of the buttons then I could do just a drying cycle again like my older one. This one doesn't have a separate dry cycle. Noise Level it is very quiet though, Sometimes I don't even remember it's on. Cleaning Time Cycles are way to long, Makes me think how could this be energy efficient .! There is a 1 hr cycle but the drying time is worst they're soaking wet when done. Loading Flexibility Loads just as much as my old one , easy loading , I like the drop top basket for taller items. Performance Cleans very well. Design I like the clean lines. buttons on the inside, and the name kenmore is on the top inside. The bottom panel that covers the motor is made of plastic which I was surprised because my last Kenmore with dial and push buttons had a metal panel, The filter is manual cleaning I rinse my dishes before I load it. my last one had an automatic filter clean, It lasted 16 yrs, I hope this one last just as long. :) Durability I had to give it a score. I really don't know what score to give it at this time , I've only had it a few months , and use it once a week, but so far so good.
