This dishwasher was installed back when my grandmother was still alive. It doesn't leak, cleans great but the top shelf that holds the cups has rusted off on the side so now I have to get a new one. Noise Level The one rinse cycle makes some noise when it starts off but that's it. Cleaning Time It takes an hour and then some to dry. Loading Flexibility It was good until the shelf broke. This thing is ancient, after five years and who knows how long before that.. Performance It cleans excellent. Design It cleans easy inside and out. Durability It takes a beating.
