"Just Decent"on by snow_goer
Pros Pretty, fairly quiet, cleans great on pot scrubber mode.
Cons Pot scrubber mode is ridiculously long, Poor rack design, normal clean mode doesn?t clean, too pricey (I paid $1000 Canadian)
Summary I have owned this thing for about a year now, before i bought it I was pro LG. Now I'm not sure that I would go with this brand again. The nice thing about this dishwasher is it's looks, and it is moderately quiet, but I have heard quieter machines. I have owned a few dishwashers in the past recent years and this one was buy far the most expensive and does the worst job on cleaning.
If by some unknown reason you leave a small bit of food on your dirty dishes before you load them. This machine will tend to chop it up into fine particles and throw them all over the other dishes. (orange juice pulp is the worst.)
I have also noticed that for some reason it seems to scratch our glasses and plates. (we use liquid soap)
At least one piece of cutlery seems to come out dirty every time. (we?ve even tried stacking the dishwasher exactly like the instructions say to)
If you over fill the soap dispenser the dishwasher will leave your dishes cloudy. (this is a user error but I find that it is easily over filled and happens often)
The rack system is terrible. I have never had so much trouble loading a machine in my life. We have Denby dishes, which are quite popular and fairly standard in size so I don?t understand why these racks are designed so terribly. I guess you have to go to the next model to get decent racks. For the price that I paid I should be able to pick and choose racks of my choice.
On a positive note, we found that the dishes seem to come out spotless if you use the pot scrubber mode.
Other models I have owned are a $400 Maytag and a $350 Kenmore, these machines were louder in comparison but cleaned and stacked perfectly.
Pros It's quiet, attractive, racks are nice.
Cons Poor drying, flimsy. "Quick Wash" is over an hour long. "normal" is over 2.
Summary Probably would go back to KitchenAid
Pros Quiet machine, stainless steel interior
Cons plates and bowls do not fit properly, tines do not have adequate height, silver ware holder is awkward, dishes do not get cleaned well.
