Pros:Quiet. Efficient. Fairly quick cycles. Stylish. Good cleaning on Eco Cycles.

Cons:Expensive. Average warranty. Average capacity for a premium washer.

The Bottom Line: If you like quality machines and aren't skittish about paying more for them, this is a very nice dishwasher.


The 45 dB noise rating seems accurate. It's very quiet when in the same room and virtually inaudible in the next room. The handle is very solid. Controls are on top and fairly self explanatory. Since the controls are intended to be out of sight when in operation, you have to set the cycle you want on the door upper edge then press start before closing. For users of face mounted washers, this can take a while to get used to.

Although the rack system has a number of removable and movable containers, the utiity of these changes is limited. Mostly due to modest , if any, increased space or better space utiiization.

Pluses:
Uses average to low quantity of detergent.
Silverware basket uses small rectangular slots making spoons etc easier to clean and load efficiently.
Upper storage rack is large and has adjustable height.

Minuses:
Lower rack tynes are a little close in some areas. So close at times making large containers and deep dishes hard to place upright or close together.
Setting a custom program is not intuitive.
LED display is only a few characters and also not intuitive to understand.

As a design engineer I feel this is a very nice, robust product with a lot of nice features and great looks. Aside from some usability issues I feel demanding buyers will be happy with this purchase, if not vwery pleased.
