This is a great dish washer. We have had it for about 8 months now and it works really well. It is very quiet. Noise Level It is really very quiet. I have to really listen to make sure it started up. Cleaning Time Depending on the cycle you choose, it can get things done really quickly or take a little longer. You have several ways to customize each wash cycle, so if you need something done rather fast, you can dothat. Loading Flexibility I love how the upper rack can move up and down. it has a lot of room. Performance It cleans really well. Design Pretty good, I think. Durability So far, so good. We use the washer at least once a day and sometimes up to three times a day. it keeps on going.
