In 40 years of marriage we've had several dishwasher brands. Most don't do a good job of getting dishes clean, are cheaply made, or don't hold up. This Kitchenaid is the exception. Absolutely the best we've ever had. We bought this model from Lowes about 6 months ago. It is very well made, easy and simple controls, and gets 99% of our dishes nice and clean. It is by far the quietest dishwasher we've had. We live in a condo with an open living/kitchen area. We cannot even hear this unit run, and we watch TV 25 ft away.

Before buying this we bought two other models and took both back. One was Kenmore (dont' waste your money...it was simply junk). The second was a Frigidaire, which didn't clean the dishes no matter what setting we used. We took it back after a couple of stressful days. Both were very noisy also.
Spend a little more on the Kitchenaid...you'll be very glad you did.
