Comment:
I would have given it 5 stars for the performance but the eventual problems made me reduce the stars. I used the top drawer daily and could fit in a lot of dishes and glasses and they came out really clean, even the really dirty ones. It was kind to my crystal and loved the wine holders on the rack. After about 6 years I started having parts go out. Took a very long time for parts to be sent after they had been ordered, my friend works on dishwashers and he did not like working on this machine since the bottom drawer has to come out no matter what you are fixing. Machine kept saying there was a water leak and it burned up 2 wiring harnesses. Every time a new part finally arrived there was another part that had been affected by the problem. The parts were pricey. Also, the racks did not hold up well and I switched the ones in the top drawer with the ones in the bottom drawer after they broke, since I mostly used the top drawere. Both drawers could handle a dinner party really well. I thought for an expensive machine it would have strudier racks. When it worked it was the best dishwasher ever.....all my dog sitters loved it too......unfortunately, it became non cost effective and I have purchased another brand. I will miss the convenience of the top drawer. Sometimes the cycles would jump around and so it was necessary to check each time I ran it that it was on the cycle I wanted it on. The ECO cycle left my dishes too wet for me.

The newest one has two different size drawers, one larger than the other in the stacked model that takes up the same space as a conventional one. This is plus!
