Summary: Yes, I've had this machine for 6 YEARS with no issues. It is only now that I need to replace the heating element, that's it. I could not be happier with this dishwasher. We use it every day for a family of 4. It does a really good job and you DON'T HAVE TO rinse the dishes off before you load them unless you want to. The longest cycle does take 90 minutes to complete but that's okay by me since I don't have to wash anything by hand.
Summary: This is a great little space saving machine! It cleans marvelously, is easy to use, and features a stainless steel interior! It really surprised me with how well it cleans. Dishes came out sparkly. I think this little machine does a better job than some of the older, larger dishwasher models for sure and the price makes everything sweeter. The rollers on the bottom make it easy for one person to 'install' and move as needed. Mechanical dials are simple and durable.
Summary: This Danby portable dishwasher is to be avoided at all costs. My machine has given me so much trouble. I've spent hundreds of dollars on servicing the machine. The last time it was to replace the pressure switch, which lasted only four months before it broke down again. Only the part is under warranty and to have the service man back would cost another $100. The machine is less than four years old! I paid well over $600 for it initially, plus delivery.
Summary: - soap dispenser never opens during cycle - worst customer service ever. We had the repair guy come at least 5 times in 6 months to fix the soap dispenser. He never ordered the part (I had to order it eventually), never managed to fix it. We gave up. Now we set the timer and manually open the dispenser during the cycle. - very poor design.
Summary: I've had this for about 6 weeks and run it 3-4 times per week. This dishwasher fits in my small kitchen. It is priced less than other 18" models but has a stainless steel drum. Not having to pay a plumber and electrician to install a built in saved me $300-$500. Hookup to the sink with a quick -connect is simple. Without surrounding cabinets to help absorb noise when it's running, it's not real quiet, but quieter than the contractor grade DW in my father's condo.
Summary: I LOVE my new dishwasher. It is easy to move around my kitchen and attaches easily to water and electricity. I've had it for about a month now and it cleans everything I throw at it. The racks are a bit rickety and sometimes dishes clang together when moving the racks back and forth but for the convenience of not doing dishes it's worth taking a little extra care with the racks.
Summary: We were extremely surprised at the quality and overall good looks of Danby 18" dishwasher, and expected something less than what we received. It works perfectly, is relatively quiet running, and exactly what we needed. If you need a great portable dishwasher with a small footprint, then this is IT. We love it.
Summary: I've been using this dishwasher for 5 months now so I'm seeing the pros and cons of this nifty dishwasher. I had a Danby countertop dishwasher before and that was such a nightmare to use. The countertop dishwasher always left the dishes dirty. Pros - clean dishes (using the economy cycle)even if you dont pre-rinse - perfect size for 2 person family, load dishes every two days - small & compact perfect for apartments, can be rolled around - quickly adapts to the sink -...
Summary: I LOVE this dishwasher! I was prepared to lose a little washing power because it's a portable, but that simply isn't the case. I bought this unit based on the online reviews and I'm 100% satisfied with this exceptional product. It rolls over to my sink with almost no effort at all, hooks up to the sink in seconds, and gets my dishes clean every single time.
Summary: It cleans the dishes well and doesn't leak. When it arrived, there was a small dent on the side. Not a big deal. After nine months, the wheel broke off -- it's a cheap plastic snap-together wheel. We snap it back together and now it comes apart every time we wheel it over to the sink to use. We only use the device once or twice a week -- it's not like we were rolling it around every day for nine months.
