Absolutely do not recommend

Whoever designed this dishwasher has clearly never used one. The adjustable top rack design is worthless, you can only lower the rack if there is nothing on the bottom or else the mid level spinning arm hits whatever is there. Leave the top rack up high and it sags forward when you slide it out to load dishes, since the adjustable feature is cheaply made with plastic parts that don't fit quite right. The adjustable tines that can flip up or down to supposedly accommodate bowls or cups are also pretty worthless, since when they are flipped up they aren't spaced properly to hold a normal sized glass between the rows. When they are flipped down, there are large areas with nothing around the bowl holder part so you can't put anything there or else it slides all over the dishwasher and only if you're lucky doesn't fall through one of the random large holes in the awkwardly spaced top rack. The 3rd time I used this dishwasher the water flipped a large plastic cup lid off a tine on the top rack, and it fell through one of the random large holes in the rack and landed on the heating element below, melting through it and making the entire kitchen reek of burnt plastic for days. The silverware holders on the bottom have little plastic knobs designed to keep them locked together and in place, but those don't work either. The dishwasher knocks them apart and makes them slide around. Spacing of the rack on the bottom is also extremely awkward, there are once again random large holes in the rack that you can't put anything near or it will fall through. It's pretty much good for pots and pans only, but not very many since once again the tines are so awfully spaced out. You are forced to either try and make pots and pans fit on the tines that are spaced out for plates, or lay them completely flat in the big gaping space left behind if you flip the tines down on one side. You'd also better like drying your dishes by hand, since the dishwasher fails miserably at drying them. Even with rinse aid and the highest heat settings dishes still come out dripping wet. I also don't know why they bothered putting an air dry feature on the dishwasher, since the dishes get musty in the dishwasher after a few days before they even come close to drying. You should also enjoy the sound of a dishwasher running for an extremely long time, since even at a supposed 55 dB this dishwasher is still annoyingly loud, and the basic wash cycle takes an unbelievably ridiculous 2 1/2 hours just to do the wash part of the cycle. I find that I am hand washing nearly 90% of my dishes now because the dishwasher is so amazingly inefficient when it comes to time and noise and being able to put more than a few dishes in it at a time. If I have to run twice as many loads to clean the same number of dishes my non-HE dishwasher used to, how is that better? Especially when it's running water and the heating element for 3-4 hours at a time? Quite frankly everything about this dishwasher is awful, and if it weren't so expensive I would throw it out and get a new one from a different manufacturer.
