Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher We bought this to replace a dishwasher that would not dry the dishes at all. This one does a wonderful job washing and drying the dishes and silverware. It is very quiet too. The style, being quiet, and doing a great job cleaning and drying everything has me sold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful dishwasher! I love the dishwasher, but I don't know if the door is closing properly. Sometimes it latches and other times it does not. What is the secret???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't I've had my dishwasher about a month and I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in the fact that it takes so long to wash dishes. Additionally I'm disappointed in the fact that you have to have a rinse aid to keep the tub dry. This is an added expense that was not necessary with my old KitchenAid. I don't like the fact that you run a load of dishes for 2 hours and then you open the door and the door and the tub are soaking, dripping wet and it drips all over my floor and I have to mop the floor before I can get my dishes out if I don't use a rinse aid. I have to take a paper towel and dry the door off before I can start getting my dishes out of the dishwasher. I don't want to fall on the floor trying to get my dishes out of the dishwasher. I wish they had left the engineering alone because my old dishwasher would wash and dry dishes quickly and I didn't have to use a rinse aid. My dishes were nice and clean and it was not something that left a lot of moisture in the tub that could cause mold and who knows what. I have made a habit to avoid using dishwasher if I possibly can that's how much I dislike it. Sometimes I like to leave the clean dishes in the dishwasher but I'm afraid to now because the tub is wet and all kinds of bacteria can grow in a moist atmosphere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alittle disappointed in top rack It is very quiet which is what I wanted but 1st one delivered with manufacturer damage inside--I paid 150.00 more for the stainless steel with fingerprint resistant front and 3rd top rack..The top rack is a joke can't put spatula or big plastic spoons up there because the rack won't close --it needs to be alittle lower--We had terrible delivery people from Chattanooga and messed up paperwork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Quite Bought this in January 2018, love it. Very quite never know it is washing. It does take a long time to complete a cycle and I haven't tried the fast setting yet. I had to get use to the pocket handle and remember not to press the controls when opening and closing. Door is lot heavier than my previous washer.Got it now.
