Summary: Very quiet. Cannot hear it running unless it is very quiet in the house. Cleans our pots/pans with stuck on gunk much better than our last dish washer. There is much more room between the lower rack and upper rack than our old dish washer. We used to have a hard time with large pots in our old dishwasher. The pot would end up hitting the spray arm attached to the upper rack.
Summary: I was amazed to see how my dishes sparkled. Using the dishwasher pods also help me understand to limit the soap I was using. Too much can etch your glassware. Dishwashing racks are versatile and accommodate all shapes and sizes -- just not always the way the manufacturer intended. Love the adjustable rack that can tilt for large trays.
