Rated 1 out of 5 by I hate this dishwasher!!! Doesn't clean and leaves dishes wet no matter what cycle! Have had this dishwasher for just over a year now and I really don't like it. The dishes in our dish washer don't come clean. The dishes do not dry. Pros: I will say that it runs really quietly. Nice sleek look to kitchen. Cons: I have no confidence that anything in this dishwasher is coming clean. I feel like I have wasted money. October 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Read Your Manual, and You'll Be Fine The manual recommends pacs. When I tried liquid detergent, it emptied incompletely and left a mess running down my nice stainless interior door. Everything came out sparkling clean when I used pacs instead. This machine is smartly designed and has more interior space than my previous model. I love that upper & lower racks provide plenty of space for silverware. Note that heat dry is not turned on by default the first time you plug in the machine; you just push the button to turn it on, then it remembers your preferences. I thought the dry feature was broken the first time I used it, but I simply hadn't read the instructions! August 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great features, Poor drying system Have only had product one week, works well, cleans everything well. Do not like the heavy duty plastic overlay for stemware on the top rack and the utensil baskets, both hold too much water even with using heat dry, something I've seldom used in 30+ years of using a dishwasher. Therefore, it's necessary to manually dry top rack items and silverware when unloading. February 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by As an update to a terrible review earlier. I still stand by the fact that if you use the steam cleaning feature, even if you use the Temp Boost or Sanitize option or go without, with the Heated Dry that the dishes come out wet. However, after running a few more cycles and continuing to try new combinations I've decided that if you put the dishwasher on AutoSense and use the Heated Dry that the dishwasher seems to work very well. I never put anything in the dishwasher that hasn't been thoroughly rinsed anyways. So overall, very energy efficient, and very stylish looking. Very Happy with the purchase. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dishwasher review Great Dishwasher. Loving the fact that it is very quiet. We are not so good with hardware work, so took us a while to install. January 24, 2013
