Summary: We needed to replace a dishwasher with something that was quiet yet effective. I know there are dishwashers out there that are extremely quiet, down to the 30+ db range, but my wallet is not that thick. I bought this unit based on reviews and it took me about 40 minutes to install, with the first load of dishes in the unit the same day. Popped in a detergent tablet and hit start. Wow - was it EVER quiet! And it did a fantastic job.
Summary: I bought this model on July 2013. I am totally not satisfied with the dishwasher performance; I am tired of re-washing most of the dishes and classes again. Also, sometime I find traces of the detergent. Another disappointment worth to mention is lack of dryness; whatever type of cycle I chose, the dishes will still be very wet. I for that, I have to leave the door open at the end of the cycle for the items inside to dry.
Summary: I look after several rentals and have put 5 of these in the homes so far. They are so quiet and do an amazing job washing the dishes. There seems to be so much more room to stack plates and pots.
