About - Amana ADB1100AWW

The Amana ADB1100AWW is part of the dishwasher test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, dishwasher models like the ADB1100AWW are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Assessed by running the normal or equivalent cycle to clean a full load--10 place settings of very dirty dishes that were scraped but not rinsed. We examine the dishes and glassware for residual food after cleaning.

Drying is our assessment of how thoroughly a model dries plastic items, the most stubborn in any load. We evaluate drying performance using the same cycle we use for our Washing test. As directed by manufacturers, we use rinse aid in every load.

Energy use:
For a normal cycle. The largest portion is needed for heating water, both at the water heater and in the machine.

It is true that it is louder than the dishwasher it replaced and definitely louder than a higher end model we have at another home. That said, it isn't much louder because we reused the sound insulation from the one it replaced. So, for us, it's not much louder at all. Moreover, it cleans very well. That is the strength of this model--good cleaning at a good price. If that is your criterion (and it was for us in this case), and you don't have other criteria (wanting additional options), then this seems to be money well spent on the front end. I cannot yet speak to longevity.
