Comment:
With sale pricing from local Mom/Pop store and rebate from Jenn-air, we bought this dishwasher for considerably less than listed. Cycles are long due to the energy efficiency but that's not a problem for us. It is very quiet. Cleaning meets our needs using the Sensor Wash setting. We have not even used any of the options (heavy wash, steam clean, super scrub, sanitize, etc.). We typically do not use the heat dry so cannot comment on drying (we wipe away the minimal water on the dishes or just open it up and give it some time to finish air drying).<br /><br />My concern (and the reason for the three stars) is that the control panel needed replacing in less than two months of once-daily use. We were without a dishwasher for two weeks while they waited on the part (which was swapped out with a minute of effort by the tech). Repair was free, but won't be forever. <br /><br />I know I can fix the panel in the future myself, but suspect the part will be expensive.
