Conclusion: It doesn't seem to matter how dirty the dishes are, this dishwasher gets them clean without any pre-rinsing. I've always been in the habit of rinsing off my dishes before putting them in, but I decided to trust this dishwasher, and it truly does the job! I love how much time and water I'm saving. It's also very quiet. You can hear it running, but it's whisper quiet so the noise is not an issue at all. I've been very satisfied.
Pros: Energy Efficient, Quality Construction, Simple Controls, Cleans Well, Easy To Load, Quiet, Attractive Design
Conclusion: We had put in an LG from Home Depot and it was defective. Couldn't get a decent replacement, since they don't have stock, so we got a refund. We decided to go to RC Willey, since they do have stock. I had read about the problems other people have listed. The very light touch buttons on the front. Yes, they are very easily engaged, but I use the control off button, and have no problem at all with them. Don't understand why others are not doing the same.

Summary: Dishes routinely come out dirty, the cycle takes forever, we had the top rack snap after less than a year & that had to be replaced. Now, today, it has inexplicably stopped working. Do not buy this dishwasher.
