Comment:
I've had two single units, one on each side of the sink, for over 7 years now. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! Only one service call has been needed the whole time. They are super quiet while running and have had to put my ear to them more than once to make sure they're even running. Mine are the integrated units and they blend right into the cabinetry and look fabulous. Yes, they are more expensive than a single, typical unit, but well worth the extra price! I've also used them as a cooler for gatherings at my house...remove the rack, add ice and beverages. At the end of the day, drain and put the rack back in. As for load, I've hosted my daughter's volleyball team dinners (15 girls at a time) and all their dishes fit in one unit! These are a must have for anyone who can afford them!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
At first we had a problem with the lock not releasing after a wash but repairman showed me the fix..press the on button (middle button on front of dishwasher) then immediately press button to left of that. The lock then releases. Not sure why we have to do that but it works. I have two of them for the past 11 years and they are still going strong. Soooo quiet and the dishes sparkle. Just like any other dishwasher you have to make sure there is no debris or any silverware under the spinning arms, which is the only other thing that has ever happened to hamper the function of these dishwashers. Mine were purchased years ago for $600.00 each so the price has gone up quite a bit. The only other con would be they are not as tall as standard dishwashers so extra large platters may be too tall. I like the great job of cleaning it does and the quietness was a big issue for us. We can't even tell it's running unless we stand right near it!
