Comment:
I purchased this 11 years ago. I love it because its economical and handles small loads which is all we do. My wife hates it (I do the dishes) because of smaller capacity per drawer (but there are two drawers). The dishwasher had problems at first because of misuse by us (tall glasses prevented lid from closing causing leaks which destroyed lid motors and electronics). I ordered replacement parts and they were always upgraded in design and never failed again. Problems went away. The dishwasher is extremely easy to fix. Parts are removable and replaceable without tools. I never needed a service man. We are moving and I would like to buy this unit again, but I am troubled by the plastic parts breaking. During the life of the dishwasher the parts dry out because of the dishwasher heat, become brittle and break. Will probably go with KitchenAid or Bosch because of reviews and to appease my wife.

I really like this washer. It's slide out drawers are easy on the back. It is quiet...not silent...very stingy on water and does an excellent job.<br />I've had no problems in 3 years now.
