Horrible silverware baskets
from Iowa, United States
Even though the information says there are dedicated jets for silverware, the silverware does not come clean and I follow the loading instructions. The baskets should not be buried in the door.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
good could be better
I thought I would get better results for the money. I have to load the dishes just right to get them clean. If I do that its ok. Less place setting. would probably be better. Door doesn't close well.

I like the brand name. When I bought it I was thrilled with its features

More than I expected. It replaced a GE that came with the house, so was more than 15 years old. This one is quieter and looks to have more room inside. Washes and dries perfectly well and seems to require less detergent. I am very happy with it.

This is a new DW to replace a 30 YO GE unit. So far so good. Runs extremely quiet and does a great job on cleaning dishes, pans, flatware etc. I am a firm believer in wiping down anything going in before the unit is used. I dare say there is no unit out there that can completely clean properly if the load is coated in dried on left over food crud.
The jury is still out.

I've had the dishwasher for about 2.5 months. For the first month and a half it worked great. Dishes were clean, dry, looking great. Then it broke. It needed a new control panel and a new heating element. I am hopeful that this will be the end of my problems, but it worries me that this $500+ appliance broke after only a month and a half of very light use. I live alone, haven't entertained very much since getting the DW, and ran it only 2-3 a week, if that. I tell you this so you have a basis for making your own judgement.

Very happy with this washer..like how little water it uses per load
Racks are cheaply made and poorly designed.

First I would like to say that the machine itself works fine and cleans dishes well, except for a couple of issues that have to do with the racks. Second I would like to say that I thought I had put a lot of research into this purchase, and had even taken a box of my dishes to the store to make sure they would fit nicely. I made the mistake of taking large items to make sure there was room for them, but not taking small items. So my main complaint with this dishwasher is that it is not user friendly as far as loading items. More on this later. I am happy with the cycle options and how the dishwasher works, except for the length of time it takes to run a load and that it lacks a quick rinse cycle. That would be helpful because due to the placement of the silverware rack, sometimes the soap dispenser cup doesn't open all the way, and half the soap is left in the cup. Then there is un-rinsed soap left on all the dishes. Without a quick rinse, I am forced to re-run the dishwasher on the light cycle, and I feel it is a waste of time, water and electricity. (And even the light cycle takes a very long time.) But the soap dispenser is more of a silverware rack placement flaw then a cleaning problem. The manual tells you not to place tall items in front of the dispenser door, but apparently "tall" is relative, and even less tall items can block it if you aren't careful. Other problems with the silverware baskets are the flimsy way they are attached to the racks and the large size "mesh" they are made of. Both the top and bottom rack have a silverware basket attached to the front of them. But the hooks that hold them on are very small, and we have had to learn not to pull on the baskets when rolling the racks forward. They pull right off. It's quite annoying, because they have a pull handle on them, and it is more intuitive to pull that handle than to reach in farther and pull the actual rack. I'm sure that with training and repeated basket falling, we will learn not to automatically reach for the handle. I mentioned mesh on the silverware baskets. For some reason, they felt having wide horizontal bars was a good idea. But they make great slots for your forks and spoons to slide right through and fall to the bottom when you are dropping them in. If they don't fall all the way through, then they just get stuck and jam up. I've never had this problem in the past with baskets whose "mesh" was just small squares. But hey, this way looks more stylish, so who cares if it's inconvenient and troublesome. Now on to my main complaint about this dishwasher. The tines in the racks are spaced too far apart. And the wires that make up the "floor" of the bottom rack are too far apart. That's not a problem for big items, but I have found that there are very few places where I can load my small items. And I wish I had thought to bring small items along when I tested models in the store. In the top rack, when I place small saucers between the tines, the "floor" of the rack does not hold them in place and they roll to the side and leave the tine area. In the bottom rack, there is one front row of tines where I can place small saucers, but there is a lot of competition for that row. In the bottom rack, the row of tines on the back half is so far apart, that I can only fit large plates in a row there. Or I can put large pots and bowls. But for medium pots, plates and bowls, they roll all around until I have placed in enough items so that the items themselves hold each other still. Forget about putting anything small there, because the wide spaces of the floor wires allow small things to fall part way through. Then they tilt and rattle. The net result of all this inconvenience is that I run out of places where small things can fit, so I have to leave a stack of the dirty small dishes out for the next load. And if I don't happen to have enough large items, then I have to run a load where half of the bottom rack is empty! How frustrating is that, to have things that won't fit in, yet still have huge empty spaces. I'm washing air, while half my dishes have to wait hours and hours until the next load. At first I thought that it was just myself being too picky, and being unused to the new dishwasher. I thought that if I gave it a few months, I would get used to the quirks of where things fit and don't fit, and work out a more efficient way to load the dishes. But after working with it, I now believe that the fault lies with the spacing of the tines and wires. And that is something you just can't always find out when doing on line research and examining many models in stores.
Quiet and effective!

I've only had the dishwasher for about a week and have done a couple of cycles with it and am very happy. It replaced a GE dishwasher that was at least six years old. It's amazing how much technology and manufacturing has improved. The dishes come out clean, the dishwasher itself is so quiet I forget it's on, and for what I paid I think it's a great choice.
