Our "good" rating assumes you have checked that your silverware will fit in the holder (see comments below). The dishwasher seems solid and well constructed. Even with the energy saving features it cleans very well. The cycle time is somewhat longer than our previous washer, but this is not a problem for us. The unit is extremely quiet, which is nice. The dry feature works well, but we found we could skip it and let the dishes air dry with the door opened a small amount. An issue we are still coping with is the generic, equally spaced tines in the racks. There is little flexibility in the way to arrange dishes. The upper rack has room for one row of bowls in the center with glasses and mugs on the sides. The bottom rack can only hold one row of dinner dishes in the central area. There is no good place for large casserole dishes and pans. If you place them at the back, the dinner dishes are pushed forward making it impossible to load anything other than very small dishes in front of them. Some of the higher priced models have more flexible rack setups that would probably resolve this. The big disappointment is the silverware holder, which is nearly useless for us, as the slots are too narrow in two of the three rows to hold our very average sized silverware. If we hadn't saved the holder from our previous dishwasher (and been fortunate enough that it fit in the rack of this one), this purchase would have been a disaster. Be sure you check for this problem before purchasing this model.

Fantastic cleaning on pots, baked-on food, etc. I like the several options for washing cycles & choosing delay. However: Silverware feature has a clumsy handle which interferes with loading & removal of two central sections; all dividers have gaps large enough to trap silverware, again making removal difficult, yet dividers are not tall enough to keep all silverware upright. None of the prongs on either shelf are moveable (upright or lay-down) to allow for better loading of larger or odd-shape items. Door hinge/spring too tight, causing door to pull upward and thrust lower shelf (even when somewhat loaded) back into the washer. Soap dispenser cover does not click shut easily, often requiring two hands (one to hold the door flat and the other to manually latch the dispenser cover). Other than cleaning quality (which is excellent) this is not an easy dishwasher to love.

Works great & really silent. Only fault found is that it does not completely dry.
Does the job and looks good
from Goshen, KY, United States
we didn't want a lot of bells and whistles on our new appliances so this dishwasher fits the bill without sacrificing quality: Pros (we don't use fine china, but more "everyday" stuff and not a lot of plastic): * Cleans the dishes * Holds quite a bit of stuff * Washes dishes quickly * Easy to use and looks good Cons: * Not super quiet (we knew this going in that it was going to be a nosier one based on the dba level, but didn't want to spend the extra money) * Dishes in the top rack will still have some pooling of water (mostly on the cups and tupperware items, but I think that is pretty common
I really like my new dishwasher. I didn't use my old one much because it wouldn't get the dishes clean and I would have to wash them when they came out of the dishwasher. The one thing I'm not too keen on is the placement of the utensil holder in the door. I find it awkward.
I would buy this product again

About Me Avid Cook
Got this to replace an old dishwasher in our kitchen that was a disaster. It is VERY quiet and cleans dishes quite well but my old dishwasher seemed to hold more dishes. The 1 hour cycle is wonderful, as is the overnight.
Excellent dishwasher for the price
Dishwasher works great and looks sharp. Doesn't completely dry l items in dishwasher, but most things are ready to unload when the cycle is completed. I would recommend this dishwasher to others.

The Abt delivery was on time, the guys worked quick and brought the unit right in the kitchen. I recommend Abt but not the dishwasher.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This dishwasher works quickly, quietly, and effectively.
from Tooele, UT
We love how quiet our dishwasher is and how clean the dishes are. We have also liked the window to see when we are low on the jet blue fluid.
The inside could be a larger
from Oviedo, FL
I like the features as they make the machine easy to use even without the manual. The outside stainless steel keeps its shine with very little maintenance. However, the size on the inside is smaller than it would appear on the outside. By the time a few things are loaded, the machine is full.
