Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Erq So what's it like after 4 years...?
So. Yes. Title is right on. Moved into a bungalow w a 1930s kitchen and this dishwasher was an added bonus to the charm. We've used for 2.5 years now and had the keypad get funky this past summer- heavy would not work and rinse aid light kept coming on although still full.
We are in NNJ and have extended service plan through our utility company so we called them out and they replaced the keypad and motherboard. Yes this little box is apparently like a PC ;)
Tech said wo Svc it would have been $500-$600 repair bill. Glad we got the $12/mo svc.
We would go bigger but want to keep kitchen original and only 2 people...do rinse off some stuff, wash out coffee mugs and tea as it stains, but quiet and works efficiently. We also use biokleen detergent so not harsh on environment and seventh generation rinse aid to keep it as low key as we can. Overall can't complain unless need to replace - 18" units r pricey!
Happy washing all who read. It's only a dish or a glass...it's not perfect but works well and not garish on adornment and tech. People r generally enthused to see the Electrolux name however- brand cache does hold some water ;)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cynInBoulder Looks great - doesn't clean dishes very well
Previously I had an 18" GE stainless steel dishwasher installed. However; I wasn't crazy about the controls being visible on the front of the unit. When I had to replace a dishwasher in my rental unit - I figured I upgrade MY dishwasher to the Electrolux and replaced the rental unit with my GE.
The Electrolux looks GREAT! Streamlined clean look that goes with my kitchen. I LOVE that the controls are not visible on the front. I LOVE all the options for washing and sanitizing.
However, it doesn't clean nearly as well as my older, uglier GE. My tea cups still have tea stains on them after a "heavy" wash. The dishes will have some food stuck on them on occasion. For the price of this unit - I expected more. Definitely disappointed that I have to scrub out my white tea cups by hand after they have been "washed".
It seals really well and if I leave dirty dishes in the dishwasher for a few days - things start growing in there and it starts smelling. I used to wait until it was filled up (one person household) before I would run it, but now I'll run it even if it's not full so it won't smell.
If I had known how poorly it cleans dishes, I would have stuck with my older dishwasher and saved myself $900.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lou151 Sparkling clean dishes and super quiet!
We bought the 18 inch Electrolux for our lower level/kitchenette/bar area - we are very pleased. It is very quiet - it is in main room and does not disturb TV watching.

This little washer is definitely worth it...if you're looking to save on space this dishwasher is it! It's super quiet...the quietest I've ever experienced and cleans dishes, pots and pans just as good as a regular sized washer. I'm beyond happy with my purchase! Now I just need a matching fridge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Farmer Dave Perfect size
We bought very old farm house which had a challenging kitchen layout. There had never been a dishwasher in the house before! I was able to rearrange some of the 1940's metal kitchen cabinets and make a perfect space for our new dishwasher. I larger size would have never fit. The same r size seems to be able to handle the job for our family of four. They blue circle on the floor is cool too.

This dishwasher was definitely worth the extra money. It is quiet -- something my old dishwasher was not -- and looks great. My only complaint, which cost it a star, is that the handle sticks out fairly far, far enough so that I had to move my kitchen island to make me less likely to bump my hip against it. In my small kitchen, that sort of thing makes a difference.

We have owned this dishwasher for 6 mths. It cleans dishes, utensils, pots and pans like no other. I cannot not hear it running unless I put my ear up to it. Excellent in every way.
