Comment:
I don't believe in cleaning dishes prior to using a dishwasher. We do with this one. Multiple dishes regularly come out dirtier than they started. Hand washing is more effective and a better use of time than loading, running, unloading, and rewashing dishes with this appliance. I would at least expect the bottom level to come out clean. It is just as poorly cleaned as the top level.<br /><br />Most recently I owned an ancient, loud, marginal dishwasher. It was a far more useful appliance. I will be replacing this one very soon as I am fed up with an appliance that cannot perform it's singular job. <br /><br />To be clear, I have trouble with dishes that shouldn't be a problem. It's not that I am giving it congealed eggs and spoiled milk to clean. This thing is useless.
