This dishwasher is outstanding. It is a very powerful cleaning dishwasher and is a pretty quiet one. Washes dishes really good. Easy to use. Classy looking dishwasher in my new kitchen. Noise Level You can hardly hear this dishwasher when it is on. Very little noise. Cleaning Time This dishwasher has a very average cleaning time. It seems to take about the same time as my previous dishwashers. Loading Flexibility You can put quite a few dishes in this dishwasher and it still cleans them very well. Holds a lot of dishes and silverware. Performance I would say the overall performance of this dishwasher is quite a bit better than the regular middle of the road dishwashers. A lot quieter than previous ones I have owned and used. I was amazed. Design This dishwasher has a classy look to it because of the stainless steel finish. High quality dishwasher. Durability This dishwasher is very durable and takes a beating from my family when they load it with dishes.
