Comment:
In two years since we installed the dishwasher the soap dispenser broke and flooded my kitchen. The motor broke and needed to be replaced. The plastic racks broke a couple times and now the dishwasher just leaks and floods my floor. Thankfully I had a three year warranty through the store I purchased it from. I had them out for the latest flooded floor and they can't find a reason for it. I am done with this dishwasher. It is the most used appliance in the house and I need it to be reliable.
