Rated 5 out of 5 by barbarabarbara different but it cleans great!
i just got this and i ran it a few times with different yuckies to check it out. it works great with everything. i got it to replace a different brand that was less than 2 years old and it was costing the price of a new one to have it repaired.
but be advised: the holes in the bottom of the silverware basket are larger than most, so if you have slender silverware (i do) the handles slip right through and jam the whirling blades. i'll have buy new silverware. also the signal light stays on when the wash is finished until you manually shut it off. if you're not home, it can stay on all weekend so plan when to run the washer. i chose this washer because it has a heated dry cycle, but it adds about an extra 30 minutes to the completion time. that makes it almost 3 hours to run. it only pays to run it if it's filled. the basket is also large and takes up a lot of space. if you're not filling it with service for eight or twelve, you don't really need that much silverware room. so i think that space is wasted. the baskets do not separate. fortunately i kept the separating holders from my previous washer and can use them. you may not have any need for the bottle jets but if you do, add time to use those. the upper rack is oddly designed in that you can't put small dishes in the center. they slide to one side so you have to put glasses in two rows next to each other. this is not the best way to stack the dishes, in my opinion. there is also no user's manual, so you have to print out 22 pages if you want to keep the manual in the kitchen. the only thing that could have been better designed was the basket holes, the light at the end of the wash and the size and unseparatability of the basket. the timing is what it is and the fact that you can't leave the house you have to plan around. nothing terrible.
if you can live with those restrictions, then go for it. you get a great wash for a reasonable amount of money.
the door feels a little lightweight and i was afraid that it would be noisy, but happily it's very quiet. you can wash upper rack, lower rack or both racks and that's a nice feature if you're a small family
i'm not sorry i chose this model and i would still recommend it. i know i'll get used to it after i change my silverware. i also know from experience that there are no perfect dishwashers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Renee4 works great!!
I've had this dishwasher for 11 days now and have used it several times. I have a family of six and this dishwasher fits all my dirty table dishes for the day. It cleans them better than any dishwasher I have had and when I set it to dry them, it actually dries them. I love the bottle jets too. They work great on glass baby bottles and plastic water bottles.
