Recently our dishwasher died. We started looking through the paper and found this one on sale at a good price. We bought it and put it in ourselves. It installed quite easy. It seemed to install similarly to another dishwasher that I we had. We have found it to be quiet for the most part. It seems to clean our dishes well. We have only used to tablet type dish soap but have found it to be enough to get the job done. The silverware basked is different in this one then our last one. I think I still prefer the last one over this one but I am getting used to it. The dish cycle seems to take about the same amount of time as our last one. I like how easy the filters seem to be to clean in this model. They are easy to wipe off or to pull and rinse. We like the rack configuration in this model. I think even through it is the same size as our last dishwasher the racks allow us to fit more dished in at one time. We are very happy with this!
