I've been using this dishwasher for approx 6 months. I have no problems with it, and I find that it cleans well. One thing about it -- and this only matters since I live in an apartment -- is that it's a bit loud, so while it's washing it does make some noise so it's hard to watch TV. The cycle on it is pretty average, and not as long as some quieter German dishwashers. The dishes come out clean--but this depends a lot on the detergent I use. Finish makes dishes shiny and even cleans burnt-on food from pyrex pans, whereas store-brand or other detergent does only a poor job so that the dishes don't come out too clean. The one thing I do love about this dishwasher, though, is that it dries dishes pretty well, so when the cycle is done most of the dishes are already dry.
