Summary: the plastic hoses are too stiff to really push in and pull out of the back. the odor from the plastic parts and hoses is really unbearable for anyone especially some with chemical allergies. space is small and no indicators of time left on washing cycles. don't waste your money.
Summary: I purchased the dishwasher online for a second home with very small kitchen. It works well in that regard; however the water supply/drain hose is very stiff and it is difficult to attach to sink faucet.
Summary: actually less than 18" wide which I discovered after removing old unit and hauling this in to the house and unpacking it. Adapter for faucet is pitifull reducing to approximately 3/8 ". Hose is very cheap and is as difficult to extract from back of machine as is the plug.
