I really liked this machine. At the start it was a good cleaning machine and has a really well designed interior. The dishes on the bottom rack are arranged with a lot of efficient us of the space and the top rack works well too. The flatware area is in the door and this is a feature that we really like, because it doesn't take space from the interior where the dishes and glasses go. This dishwasher also has a delayed start setting for a delay of either 2, 4 or 6 hours. We use this a lot and like this feature, because when this unit runs it is very loud. We often set the dishwasher to start after we've gone to bed, so we don't have to hear it loudly humming. The cleaning aspect of the dishwasher was good at first, but we are finding that as time moves ahead, the cleaning capabilities are getting weaker and weaker. I practically have to wash the dishes before loading at this point and feel it is time to replace this unit. We did also have one other problem with the handle. It is made of plastic, which broke due to normal use. Fortunately, we were ale to order a replacement part online at a very inexpensive price and mu husband fixed it without too much trouble. Overall, the dishwasher was relatively inexpensive, but the downfall was expectedly short life span, lower quality parts and LOUD!
