We got this dishwasher a few weeks ago as our other one went belly up after 10 years. And one of the reasons I like this one is how quite it is, you hardly know it's running. I like how easy it is to set up wash cycles and the different cycles that are available.

We've had this for about a month. I specifically wanted a more inexpensive dishwasher, because I didn't want to break out the directions when I used it, nor wanted a huge bill if it required service. I chose it based on utensil placement and lack of center sprayer that took up too much space on the bottom rack. While I find the particular utensil holes easy for putting dishes away, it does limit how much you can add. The utensil holder sections are quite small. Putting tongs or measuring spoons in them takes up quite a bit of space. I do like that you're able to put the rack anywhere, because leaving it in the door looks like the utensils over time, would ding up the door. Without the center sprayer on the bottom, does leave a lot of room for dishes. I also like that it has 3 sides that are larger to add in more oversized dishes. Adding glasses to the top wrack can be a puzzle. The center is the widest, and the width of those areas see to pan out from there. It does hold a lot of dishes. And I do like the 4-hour delay, although I wish it had a 2-hour option. It does not dry completely. Anything plastic, including the door stays wet all the time. I believe that's an energy feature, which is highly annoying. I think next time I'd opt for doing them myself and saving the money. But if you must have a dishwasher, I may even try the lowest end model in hopes that the energy features don't outweigh the dishwasher's performance and in this case drying. It's mediocre.
