Rated 4 out of 5 by Great dishwasher, but more info needed before installation. Just bought this dishwasher, and so far I have loved it! It took a week to get it installed, though, because of a very common plumbing issue that could have been addresses. September 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Interior too small and inflexible. Hard to load How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways: I had to buy this model because the regular height models (34 1/2") were too tall for my space. I had done lots of research before I chose what I thought would be the best dishwasher for us, at the best price. Unfortunately, when it was delivered, it was too tall. So, back to work, with a very small pool of options. This model is much smaller inside than my previous one. The interior is poorly designed. The tines for loading dishes are so straight that bowls or plates with a rim are hard to load. Actually, bowls are almost impossible to load. The upper rack is also hard to load, and one lovely cup is already broken, because it fell over after it was loaded. The racks do not pull out easily or smoothly, especially the lower one, so dishes already loaded knock around when I add more plates. I am washing more things by hand rather than fight with the rigid setup. It seems to wash well, though I am intimidated by all the instructions about maintenance for performance. So, all told, I am disappointed (and my husband, who is the main dishwasher is even more so). Our previous dishwasher was 15 years old. Meaning we will hate this one for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very, very pleased! I didn't realize how much we needed a new dishwasher!!! It's a little quieter than our old one--that's a plus. It does a GREAT job cleaning the dishes--another huge plus! And I really like being able to choose the "Light" option and being able to NOT choose "Heated Dry." January 13, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product works well I would have to say that overall this is a good dishwasher in terms of getting your dishes clean. The smaller tub is good for those older homes with odd sized cupboards. The problem I've had is the delay timer and pots and pans buttons do not work. Repair has been called...but still not here. Other than that this is a good dishwasher. December 24, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not what I expected I will start with what is good about this dishwasher - it fits in the space I have. We replaced our kitchen floor and had to go with a dishwasher less than 33 1/2 inches high. It does fill the width space and the installer did a nice job of making it look good. It does seem to clean adequately. My appreciation stops there. Every time the door is opened or closed there is a "beep" sound - can't be turned off. I need to pull quite hard to even open the door. The door doesn't open flat so the bottom rack rolls back into the tub. I was especially disappointed with the interior size. It is very small and shallow depth. Don't expect to wash many pans at one time. The silverware rack is a joke. It comes apart and can't be moved to another more convenient place in the dishwasher. I finally took the handle off and removed the slotted covers. The flip-down racks in the upper basket won't stay up and were always in the way of putting glasses, etc. in the dishwasher - they went the way of the silverware covers. The baskets seem cheap and do not look like they will hold up over time. Overall a very poor design. I would not recommend this dishwasher. I have a feeling we will not keep it for very long. Wish I had gone with the full size model and taken the chance of getting it to fit. December 27, 2013
