We wanted a dishwasher that would last, so bought this one after some research, because of good quality parts, and 5 yr warranty.
We were very disappointed with the wash for a start, as things came out more dirty than with our old F&P!!
The service man, suggested we used the pot wash (which takes 3 hrs!) to get maximum heat into the water - we were rinsing our dishes too well, and the auto sensing wasn't working like it should!!
We also have to use dishwasher tabs, which are more expensive, but work better.
It does wash well now, but takes a long time!!
It is very quiet which is a bonus.
Have to use it on the longest, hottest cycle, which takes 3 hrs, to get the dishes clean enough.
The top rack doesn't fit the plates and cups very well - one side cups sit fine, other side is too narrow for some cups - have to also start stacking plates 3 slots back to get them sloping forward enough to stay there!
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
