Dishwasher almost can't be heard and it does a great job of cleaning.
The Sanitize Option works as indicated but the washer doesn't actually have a heated drying element. You must make very sure you have a rinse agent in the washer.
Have only had this model for two months. So far we are satisfied because it works as advertised and the dishes do get clean. Maximum running time seems to be 2 1/2 hours which isn't bad since it is energy efficient.
