Rated 5 out of 5 by Betseigh Nice looking and a great value Holds a lot of dishes for the compact size. Does an excellent job cleaning the dishes. Has it's own water softener. Love the stainless steel interior. Operates quietly and is a great value. I've seen the same dishwasher on other sites for $100 more! 01/11/2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by fjgie8392 The ability to add water softener salt inside the machine is a true blessing for us. Our well water is incredibly hard and we haven't gotten around to the expense and bother of having a whole-house water softener installed. This dishwasher, even on the economy cycle, cleans off day-old dried-on food, even though I am using Kroger economy dish powder. I do not use a rinse aid (why eat even more chemicals?) and the dishes are pretty much spotless. Squeaky clean. Some of the old mangenese stains (black) on our dishes are starting to go away!It is very quiet--a soothing wooshing sound. Racks can be pushed down flat to facilitate loading really large items. It appears sturdily built and the stainless steel interior is very nice. The only negative is the adaptor which fits on the faucet does not have an aerator, so now when we use the sink for other purposes (we leave the adaptor on--it would be a pain to keep unscrewing it) water comes out very quickly! But we're learning how to deal with it.Only had it a few days, so I cannot speak to durability. I do worry about pulling the vinyl hoses in and out of the back--over time it seems their connections might weaken and leak from this kind of treatment. Be sure to let the dry cycle finish. If you open it early, you'll find a large quantity of water in the bottom of the machine! (guess how I learned that...). The last of the water actually isn't pumped out until many minutes into the dry cycle.Oh, and if you are having trouble getting the adaptor to fit on your faucet, you might find there are TWO washers that need to be removed with your aerator. Once they are both out, the adaptor and its two washers seem to fit just fine. I was able to just hand-tighten the adaptor and it does not leak. We have a basic Delta 100 faucet. Not sure about those fancy-schmancy faucets...If you only wash plates and cups, I'm sure 8 place settings would fit. But if you cook, you'll find that not everything fits inside. Or maybe I just need to learn how to load it better. Pots and bake pans and large bowls...hmm, they are a challenge! I still end up doing most of the big stuff by hand. But we don't have the floor space for a larger dishwasher. 01/03/2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tighe256 Great machine for the price I am basing this review on this current purchase, but also on a previous machine purchased eight years ago. I gave that machine away when my living circumstances changed.There is really nothing to which to compare this machine. All other models/brands I have seen usually start at twice the price.Although it takes some time learning how to fill this machine, once accomplished, it is easy and fast.One negative point: there is no way to track how long a cycle has to go except through experience. It would be nice if there were some digital or even analog display feature for this. 12/25/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by JCEHenz214 Wonderful Product! I can honestly say I am not sure why in the world I waited so long to buy this. I love this machine. It takes away so much stress and is quite easy to use as long as you take the time to read the manual. We use it all the time and I love the ease of it all. Why did I do my dishes by hand for so long!? My only issue is not with the machine but was with the company that shipped it. This item shipped from a warehouse literally twenty minutes from us. It took four days to get here. Then once it arrived, it had a huge dent in the side of the box and the machine like someone had rammed into it with the forks from a line lift. So we called Walmart and they said they would take care of the pick up for our damaged one and redeliver a new one. Okay, awesome. It took another week to get our replacement since it was a freight item. We finally got it, and the wheel is broken on the second one. This is a problem since it is a portable dishwasher. It's difficult to move anywhere. It is still usable and I swear by the machine itself, however I did not appreciate the carelessness of the shipping company. I was not about to wait another week for a third dishwasher in hopes that they get it right!! This is an expensive piece of merchandise and it was supposed to be in brand new condition. I am absolutely frustrated with the actual delivery part of the purchase. It is very inconvenient to have to wait so long for a fully functioning non damaged item. 09/03/2012
