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: Picked it out and picked it up then installed it myself, didn't take alot of time either, runs smoothly and does a very fine job of cleaning all items including fry pans and pots, even the slow cooker insert fits in there nicely as does the steak roaster pan, (which comes in two parts).
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.
