Comment:
Seems fine to me. Someone just gave me a ASKO D5434XL. I was checking Consumer's Reports before I switched mine out because the Amana is fine for what I need, has delay and a quick wash which I like. Does Crystal (which I do not recommend) in a pinch. This got 34 points? ASKO got 68? I will see. Sitting in garage right now.

Comment:
The only thing great about this dishwasher is how the exterior looks. Even lightly soiled dishes come out dirty. The top rack is useless, the bottom rack is marginal. I often end up running things twice, which is probably as much labor as simply doing my dishes by hand.

Comment:
Plain and simple: this is a dishwasher that doesnt wash dishes very well. We've gotten to the point where we essentially hand wash the dishes before we put them in the machine, which kind of defeats the purpose. This dishwasher also doesnt dry the dishes very well. It's really more of a dish-wetter than a dishwasher.
