This dishwasher only does an alright job of cleaning dishes. We bought it for our house and it did an great job for awhile. Then the dishes started coming out of the washer with a little bit of food on them. I thought it was because of the soap so I switched to a different brand. This was still happening so I thought maybe I needed to rinse the dishes off better before I put them in. The problem still kept happening so I just decided it was the dishwasher. I did not want to waste more money washing my dishes twice and also that defeats the purpose of having a dish washer if I have to completely wash the dishes before I put them in. It is a great washer for awhile, but then it does not work so great. There will be little bits of food stuck on after the wash. I do not really recommend buying this, but if it is what you have in say an apartment, this will make do. Noise Level Pretty quiet machine.
