Awesome Dishwasher!

Juls, reviews.lowes.com
15 March 2012
  • Summary: I read a lot of reviews for dishwashers and felt very confused...almost everyone has some bad reviews. I finally decided on this one after being tired of looking and I am glad I did. I absolutely love this dishwasher. The dishes are squeaky clean...we use the Finish powerball pacs detergent with the rinse aide as recommended. I was surprised how inexpensive Finish is...before we used Cascade. I really have no complaints! Love this dishwasher.
  • Pros: High quality

Does Clean

Contrimop, reviews.lowes.com
2 March 2012
  • Summary: Bought this dishwasher and it works fine. We were impressed with the cleaning power of this dishwasher but the door is difficult to open/close and the bottom drawer comes off the tracks easly. Dishes are not always 100% dry but the bonus is you can empty the dishwasher almost as soon as it is done without burning your hands. Very quiet.

Not of the same quality as our old Maytag

SteveS, reviews.lowes.com

  • Summary: Dishwasher does a great job cleaning dishes but the bottom rack does not roll out smoothly, it keeps coming off the track which jostles the glasses and I worry that it will break them. This appears to be a design flaw and not specific to just our dishwasher - we had the installer back and they tried another rack and had the same problem and he said he’d experienced the problem on other installs.
  • Pros: cleaning
  • Cons: Low quality, poor design

I don't like the Top Rack

RickM, reviews.lowes.com
4 February 2012
  • Summary: We bought this dishwasher for a remodel our our house and it does a very good job of cleaning dishes. It's very quiet and overall we are pleased. But I have 2 compliants: 1 ) The Top Rack is terrible. We can't load any of our wine glasses, Turvis Tumblers or ice tea glasses on the Top rack except in the far right side - only 5 glasses will fit. Now we either Hand Wash, use juice glasses or gamble by placing them on the bottom rack with plates, pots, etc.
  • Pros: quiet, cleans well
  • Cons: top rack design

Excellent Dishwasher

Vicki, reviews.lowes.com
26 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this dishwasher and am very pleased with the features it has. I love the ability to place taller objects on the top shelf, the adjustability for needed use, the large capacity on the lower level allowing large pots, pans, and cookie sheets to clear, and the flexible silverware holders that you can place where you want. The dishwasher is so quiet that I have to look at the lights on the panel to know if it is running.
  • Pros: High quality, Durable, quiet

A good value for the money

Bruce, reviews.lowes.com
24 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the washer after my old Kenmore brand washer showed it's age. I was quite pleased with the job the Kenmore had been doing. Wanting to give an accurate review the washer has now been used about 3 months. I am satisfied with this washers performance and rate it every bit as good as the Kenmore and have found every claim made by the manufacturer to be true, which is important to me.

Hate the Racks

Terri, reviews.lowes.com
18 January 2012
  • Summary: We purchased this dishwasher to replace our 20 year old Maytag. I was happy with the price, color, SS tub and number of washer arms. However, I'm not pleased with the design of the racks. First of all, there is only one section of angled bracket on the top rack. If you load this rack with glasses, there is no room for small plates and bowls in that section. This leaves you leaning them against other brackets in the upper rack, wasting space.
  • Pros: High quality
  • Cons: rack design, basket design

Almost the Best

ghia, reviews.lowes.com
18 January 2012
  • Summary: We had to buy a dishwasher when the demise of our 24+year old drop in stove necessitated a cabinet remodel. The dishwasher we had was a 2 year old hand me down from grandparents that wasn't the best and it was just time. We looked, read reviews and compared. The one thing we heard negative for this unit was the handle and yes it would be nice to have a real handle on the front but that is just a nice design change. The thing cleans like the dickens, everything.
  • Pros: High quality
  • Cons: handle design
