this is a nice dishwasher but it doesn't always get the dried on caked on food stuff. it does a good job of cleaning prerinsed plates and bowls but for dried on oatmeal it falls a little short and leaves some spots here and there. I like the overall clean design and the controls on the top are easy to use. It would be nice to have brighter LEDs to tell the dishes are clean or in process. Noise Level Only slight wooshing here and there. We don't have to turn up the TV when this is running. Very nice noise level. Cleaning Time I like the delay button to run this after we have gone to bed and wake up to nice clean dishes. The regular wash cycle is efficient and timely. Loading Flexibility there are almost too many options for loading. i actually removed a lot of the little trays and baskets and covers to be able to just load dishes. So there are a lot of options. Performance Performs adequately the dishes come out clean. Design This matches the rest of our Kenmore stuff but the handle where in pinches down to the door is hard to clean in that space. I am not going to get stainless steel next time as it is too hard to keep looking clean. Water spots show up very easily. Durability Good. nothing has broken or had to be repaired.
