Happy Holidays to Me!!! This was my gift to myself when I came into some unexpected cash. It arrived on 12/29/15. It's brand new and so I will come back and update after I've had it for a while, but here are my thoughts and observations so far...The Outer box did have a gouge in it, but the inner box was in perfect condition and the unit itself is well protected. The unit was in perfect condition coming out of the box.So far I love my new SPT countertop dishwasher. I've had full sized dishwashers in the past and I've lived in situations where I had to hand-wash dishes. Like most people, I prefer a dishwasher partly because doing dishes is a chore and partly because a dishwasher just gets the dishes cleaner than you ever will doing them by hand. I've been hand-washing for the last 6 months. I'm renting a small house that was built in the 1920s and there is no room in the kitchen for a full size dishwasher and so I began researching countertop options. I was pleased by the number of positive reviews for this unit, and it was on sale so I went ahead and got it. It arrived a full day before Amazon said it would - that's always nice!OK, I'm going to go through a pretty thorough review here because it seems that many people don't provide accurate or complete information. So, this is accurate and as complete as I can be...UNIT MEASUREMENTSThe unit as it measures in my home: 17.25 (H) X 21.5 (W) X 19.75 (D).The power cord is about 65" long (it has many bends from how it's packaged and so it cannot be completely straightened)The hoses (which come already connected to the sink attachment and are also coiled and will not straighten completely) are about 60" long.The length of the power cord and hoses allows for some flexibility in placement relative to the sink, but you will not be able to set it up across the room from the sink unless you're planning to put it near the sink for each use.According to the product description, the unit weighs 48 lbs. I lift 30-lb bags of dog food with some regularity, and also just bought a 50-lb bag of ice melt. From comparison (without putting it on a scale), I'd say it is right around the 50-lb mark. This is empty, with no dishes and no water inside. So as you decide where you're going to put it, if you're using a portable rack or other device, make sure it can hold at least 100 lbs - 50 for the unit, plus 8 or 9 lbs for the water, plus the weight of your dishes (another 8-10 lbs) - total about 70 lbs when full and in use, plus some cushion just to be safe.UNIT NUANCESThe door has a very secure snap closure and you must pull with a pretty good force to open it. I'm hoping that will loosen up just a little as time goes on because right now I have to put downward pressure on top of the unit in order to open the door - I've got my unit sitting on a thin-legged metal rack (see pics) and so the rack wobbles a bit if I pull hard without the downward support to hold the rack still. The shelf unit I'm using has metal mesh shelves. In order to create a flat surface, I also put a piece of plywood down and covered that with aluminum foil to create a moisture barrier to the wood. Then I put a towel down just be a little more attractive to look at.My dinner plates are 11 inches in diameter. Slanting them forward a bit allows them to fit just fine. The description for the unit indicates that 10-inch plates will fit without a need for slanting. I would say that's accurate.DETERGENT/DRYING AIDI'm using Cascade Complete gel packets. This product has Jet Dry in it and so I do not need to add extra drying agent. This packet fits perfectly into the larger side of the detergent compartment. NOTE: because you are not using an extra/separate drying agent (if you use a product that has it already included), the light telling you that you are low on drying agent will be lit every time the power is on. Ignore it.WASH TIMESMany people have complained about the length of the cycles. I'm not sure why there is so much complaint or confusion. It takes as long as a full sized dishwasher to clean the dishes. And furthermore, the instruction manual has a page (see pics I've included) that tells you exactly how long each cycle type will take. There are several cycles:Heavy/Pots & Pans (100 minutes)Normal (85 minutes)Light (75 minutes)Glass (70 minutes)Speed (45 minutes)and Pre-wash/soak (10 minutes).The Heavy cycle has a double wash cycle.The Heavy, Normal, Light and Glass cycles all include a heated dry cycle.The speed and the pre-wash do not include any drying.The other major difference in the cycles is the temperature of the wash/rinse water:Heavy and Normal having the highest (wash 131*F and rinse 149*F)The Speed has the lowest temperatures (wash 122*F and rinse 131*F).Even the heavy and normal options are not technically reaching a temperature that is considered sterilizing (170* or hotter), but it's much closer than you could get compared to hand-washing.I've only used the Normal cycle, which according to the manual is an 85-minute wash. I've done 3 loads so far. The first I did with hot tap water. I made sure the water was at its hottest before turning off the tap to connect the hose and turning it back on. The dishwasher will heat the water to the correct temperature for the option you've chosen, but clearly starting with already hot water will shorten the time to heat the water. So, starting with very hot tap water, the Normal wash cycle from the moment I pressed the start button to the moment the end-of-cycle beep happened was 87 minutes. The next load I did, I used the cold tap water. I was curious to see if there would be a major difference. There was. This time it took 125 minutes (just over 2 hours). So using cold water is an option, but it will add a little more than 30 minutes to the process because the unit needs to first heat the water in order to properly wash the dishes. The third load I did (yesterday) I used the hot tap, though I didn't give it time to get to its absolute hottest. This load took exactly 90 minutes - just 5 minutes longer than the manual suggests. Again, this is the typical length of a full-sized dishwasher on a normal cycle as well.DRY DISHESThe Normal cycle that I'm using includes dry time. I've made a point to be standing at the dishwasher when the end-of-cycle beep sounds so that I could see if the dishes are in fact dry. I've interrupted the beep to open the door. The ceramic dishes (plates, bowls), metal dog food bowls, plastic cups and silverware are all dry to the touch (and baked hot). The tupperware type pieces tend to still have some water/steam on them. But that is also typical of most full size dishwashers. Letting the dishes sit in the rack, with the door open for 20-30 minutes and all dishes are completely dry and cool enough to put away.NOISEThe sound of the unit in cycle (the swish of your dishes being cleaned) is very quiet. I cannot hear it outside the kitchen, even from the adjacent room. The only time it seems loud is when it's draining water into the sink. It sounds like someone just turned on your tap to full - so if you have a metal sink, it's water hitting metal. If you have a porcelain sink, it's water hitting porcelain. If you want to assess that volume before you buy, just turn your tap on full and walk into the next room. Better yet, be in the other room and have someone else turn it on so you can hear what that initial water-hitting-surface sounds like because that's the loudest moment.The end-of-cycle beep is a repeated beep that lasts just 8 seconds. I was awake and listening for the beep from my bedroom (just 2 rooms away) and almost missed it. It definitely would not disturb sleep unless you're sleeping in the kitchen or are super, hyper-sensitive to any kind of noise while sleeping - and I'm a light sleeper.GETTING IT HOOKED UPOK, so I'm a 5'2" woman. I was able to lift the unit from the floor to a step stool and then from the stool to the rack on which it sits (see pics). It would definitely be easier with a second person because it's a bit bulky and awkward. But I didn't have anyone available to help and I was able to manage. I used the door handle and the metal lip at the top of the back of the unit for hand-holds. Remember to LIFT WITH YOUR KNEES - it is heavy enough to cause pain or injury to a back if you are already weak in that area or have a previous injury.The adapter has TWO washers - a thin one that is well-seated into the adapter and a thicker one that easily falls out. When I first connected to my faucet, I thought the thick one was from my faucet and so removed it out of the way. The test run leaked a lot around the faucet. I then put that thick washer on top of the thin one and reattached the adapter with both washers in place. NO MORE LEAKING at the faucet!!!!I connected the hoses to the back of the unit as directed. I hand-tightened both. I ran a 10-minute pre-wash cycle to test for leaks. The drain hose leaked. I disconnected it, turned the unit for better access, rather than trying to just reach behind, made sure the connection was seated properly, hand-tightened and then used a pliers to gently tighten. I got another full turn (or 2) before it felt fully tightened - careful not to over tighten as it is plastic and that can break if tightened too far. I also wrapped that connection with some plumbers tape just for good measure. I ran another pre-wash (10-minute) cycle NO LEAKS anywhere! Now I was ready to do a proper load of dishes.CLEANING THE DISHESI feed my dogs using a food puzzle toy (Kongs) which involves mixing their kibble with soft foods such as pumpkin puree or yogurt. It's difficult to get that all out and properly cleaned by hand. I had several of those that needed cleaning. I also washed their regular food bowls - the green one (in the pic) had fish oil and cranberry powder residue that I've been unable to get fully cleaned off for the last 6 months (that's 6 months of residue!). The Kongs and the bowls (and the rest of the dishes) came out looking like new! The residue was gone and there was no weird film that others have mentioned they've experienced. I think they may be using too much detergent, or not using any kind of drying aid at all.You will need to rinse off all large food particles. Remember, this portable unit is not connected to a garbage disposal and so cannot cope with large chunks of food particles. But, sauce residue, chocolate powder caked on a spoon, cheese and egg stuck on a spatula - all came off no problem.There is a 3-part filter system and you will likely need to clean it with some regularity (every few months) to keep the dishwasher from getting gummed up.BETWEEN USESThe hoses are pressurized and so you only need to turn the faucet on a little to get it set. You can leave the faucet on all night if you start the dishwasher at bedtime as you will not be using/running water all night due to the pressurized hose.Be sure to TURN OFF THE FAUCET before you try to unhook the hose from the faucet. Also, be sure to PRESS THE RED BUTTON and wait for the water to drain before disconnecting the hose from the faucet. Once disconnected, you'll want to hold the end down and the length of the hose up to drain the last of the water that's in there before tucking the hose into its storage position - this is simply to avoid drips.Final note: the unit was a little damp inside as were the hoses upon arrival. I believe this is from testing at the factory before packaging. Many have mentioned it. Also, the unit and the hoses smell like new appliance. I can't smell it unless I'm right next to it, and I expect that after I've had it out and in use for a month or two, that smell will be gone.So far, I am super happy with this unit - the ease of setting up, the quality of the clean. I will check in again in few months to update.

My dislike of doing dishes turned most of the counter space of my small Manhattan kitchen into physics-defying stacks of procrastination. This countertop dishwasher takes up about 60% of usable counter space in my apartment, a sacrifice I'm willing to make but for city dwellers, definitely measure it out.This unit is perfect for one to two people. My loaner husband no longer lives next door to me so I was apprehensive about installing the faucet adaptor myself, turns out it was a cinch. I found a helpful video online which showed the tool I needed to get: [...]Normally I don't read manuals, this one I read cover to cover. Some of the typos and wording are good for a laugh and its focus is on how to load a hypothetically uniform set of dishes no one actually owns. Fortunately, the Amazon community helped me fill in the blanks, I'm very grateful for their assistance. Here's what I learned from them and from using the machine:1. Turn on your hot water all the way when you've got it set up and are ready to run it. The cold water will tax the motor.2. If you're using Cascade Complete gel packs, those go in the detergent compartment on the door. There's a little basket on the left side that's for dishwashing tablets. The reason I like the Cascade Complete Gel Packs is it's got everything in it, including the rinse agent that keeps your glasses from streaking.3. You don't have to stress out if you don't turn the faucet off immediately after the cycle is done. Water won't continue to run. I mean, I wouldn't go on vacation without turning off the faucet but you don't have to obsess that there's going to be some water pressure build-up that's going to shoot your shiny new countertop dishwasher into space if you're absorbed in another activity.4. It doesn't dry plastic, but does dry my plates and pots. A few times I rinsed a couple of dishes again, they were super shiny so I was suspicious maybe the Cascade Gel Pack left some residue, so basically I ran them under water again because they looked too clean, starting to worry that I have trust issues.5. The packaging is so sturdy, Wile E. Coyote could have dropped an anvil on it and it would have been fine. I've received mutilated deliveries from other companies with everything from footprints on top of the box to holes where the fork lift went through it. This can withstand whatever fury the delivery company dishes out.6. The adaptor on your faucet takes getting used to. It produces a very strong stream of water so you only need to turn your faucet on a little to use it. I've already had a few accidental wet t-shirt contests but the good news is I won.7. It's very quiet. Sometimes too quiet, I get paranoid it's not running but it is, it's just using its indoor voice. There's about a minute total where there's audible noise.8. The hoses that connect from the unit to the faucet are annoyingly stiff. It's good to know that it's not going to spring a leak any time in the near future but I have to figure out some hook system to make them less obtrusive.9. There's a plastic warning in the manual and one of my Tupperware lids didn't make it. It was probably eighteen years old so it lived a good life. I've washed plenty of other plastic items that made it out just fine.10. Don't forget to turn the power on the dishwasher off before you unload it. If you don't, it makes this annoying beeping sound that the manual describes as "mooing". I assure you, there are no barnyard sounds with this machine.I'm very happy with my purchase. I would give it 4 and 3/4 stars because of the hose, amount of counter space it takes up and its not drying everything 100% completely. It's not perfect, but it's very close and what more could a girl ask for.

**Update** After one year it died. Previous model still going strong. Not worth dealing with trying to have it repaired. Please see other reviews expressing exact same concerns as me.I am a repeat customer. I also own the Danby DDW611WLED Countertop Dishwasher. I could not be happier with that dishwasher. However, this dishwasher is terrible. I own both at the same time. Because the new rack is so poorly arranged, I can not fit even half the number of dishes in this new one that I can in the old one. They also removed the timer. Now I have no idea how much time is left in the cycle.Some people have said, "Buy a whole new dish set that fits." Should not have to do that when previous model held my dishes just fine.Some people have said, "But the manufacturer says this one holds more." Maybe with whatever set of dishes they were using to get the maximum numbers they could for marketing, but in the real world, things are different. Wouldn't it be great if everything manufacturers claimed was true.I love my old dishwasher. It does everything I want. However I could not be more disappointed in this newer model. Please stay away from this one. Buy the older model while you still can.

Unfortunately, from my research on countertop dishwashers, this is the best of the bunch. It appears as though all countertops are manufactured by the same manufacturer, and then just appointed with slightly different electronics and faces to suit each re-branding OEM's needs. They're all almost exactly the same size, there's only about 2 or 3 variations on the racks, and they all appear to have the same door/port placement. We had a Danby Designer before this and it recently gave up the ghost after 12 years of faithful service. I now wish we would have repaired that one, because none of the current models are anywhere near as good as that thing was.The Pros: * This is the only model with a heater built in. *However,* it doesn't really get that hot at 165F. Our last model had to settings for heat-- normal and hot-- and the hot setting would essentially steam everything away and scortch your hand if you touched glasses coming directly out after a cycle. * Quiet. I was honestly surprised by how quiet this thing is, and it's been probably the best feature improvement over older models. * Able to accommodate the tallest plates from all the other versions offered. * Has various settings (but, really, you're only going to use one or two).Cons: * Still not tall enough. Our last Danby Designer could easily hold our 11" dinner plates with room to spare. Now, if we want the dinner plates to be washed, we either have to put them in at 45 degree angles, leaving everything else out, or we wash them by hand. This was a big bummer. * The tray layout is freaking stupid. Like, really, really stupid. I read the directions. I followed the directions, but the layout itself is just dumb, and there's gigantic gaps in the grating where an errant small bowl or cup can fall through and get the washer arm stuck for the entire load. The last model had TONS of options for loading, and the tray grating had no holes for things to fall through. This layout severely limits your options, and you're best to just stick with the recommended layout and do two loads. * While it gets hot, it doesn't get hot enough. If you start a load before going to bed, when you wake up and open the door, everything is still wet and you either have to hand-dry everything, or let it air out for a couple hours. Yes, I'm aware that Jet-Dry and similar products can help this, but I want to use as little chemicals in my foodware as possible, and, frankly, that shouldn't be needed. With our last Danby, you started the load in the night, and when you woke up in the morning and opened the door, everything was just dry. It had a great steam cycle that assured this. * I really would like a timer. This is a feature on some other models (like the SNP), and I didn't know that I would want it. (Again, our last Danby had a mechanical timer you could follow). While this isn't a deal breaker, I can't see this being all that expensive of a part, and I'm kind of sour that Danby didn't include it.Will we return this? No. It's still the "best" of the countertop models currently on offer and it cleans dishes. Will I complain about this for the next however many years we use this. Absolutely. It's a startling thing when you have a decent product produced by a manufacturer, and you purchase their newer model which is obviously inferior. I understand that the market for these things is limited, but that doesn't mean that progress should be cast aside.You're going to look at the market for countertops. You're going to see a complete lack of information on all these different models. You're going to confuse one SNP model that you were looking at for another. You're going to realize that the specs you thought you were looking at for the Magic Chef were actually for the Danby. You're going to go to each manufacturer's website to look for the missing information from the product page, and you're going to realize that the manufacturer's websites don't have this information either.Then you're going to realize that only one company manufactures these things, that the industry doesn't care about this segment, and you're going to go with the Danby because it is the only one that offers a water heater.Then you're going to install it, and use it, and after not too long you're going to b***h about it because it's *juuuuuust* right on the tip of something good, but simply not there. And then you're going to come to the reviews section and say the same damn thing I just said.

I am in love with this dishwasher; it has saved me from the drudgery of hand washing dishes (along with chapped cracked hands). I cannot say enough good things about this dishwasher; it fits nicely on my counter top and underneath the cabinets, ample capacity – read the outside dimensions people! This thing is not a TARDIS there is no way it's going to be bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. The capacity it as basically the top rack of a smaller dishwasher. It took me a little while to get use to loading, but now I have the hang of it.I researched a lot before making my purchase;1 year warranty (much better than some countertop dishwashers I looked at) along with the extended warranty provided by my credit card and an additional 2 months added to the warranty provided by Danby, just take the short questionnaire on the Danby website – 22 month warranty, WOW!Quality companyGood repair history versus some of the popular Asian brands

This model is much better than the DDW497 I replaced. The DDW621 is *far* quieter and cleans items in the dishwasher noticeably better.There is one negative point. The left side has a pair of adjustable/removable shelves. In the DDW497, the comparable shelf was just low enough to allow a second set of cups to be on that shelf (four cups/tall glasses on the lower rack and four 9-oz coffee cups on the upper shelf). The two shelves in the DDW621 are set too high to permit this. They will not allow the same 9-oz cups (Correlle) to be on those shelves because they hit the top of the front opening when you try to roll it into the dishwasher. If you move the racks down, then there is no room for the same-sized cups under those shelves. I checked other coffee cups (8-9 oz capacity, not just Correlle), and they all experienced the same problem. This is a design flaw in the rack, not in the dishwasher. I was able to fit a small (20-oz) casserole onto the top shelf, with its lid on the other top shelf.I mostly use Correlleware, and I have been using it for some time (30+yrs). The largest plates (12") will NOT fit. All the other stuff will fit with few problems.

it's great for few cups & plates, but not much other such as baking or frying pans & casseroles which needs be cleaned like the rest you would think. So I still have to resort to plastic gloves and a dish-brush most of the time.I use it sparingly once or twice/a week.And then, you have to pay some maintenance work after machine is done, don't forget that.So there we go.It's a great machine as far as the built and its work, but not of much help, really.

I had an unusual situation to overcome. I have a sink from the 1920’s built into a kitchen wall with no wiring. I can’t disassemble or move anything in the kitchen, and I have no dishwasher. My wife and I were getting extremely tired of washing dishes every night. So… The search for a portable dishwasher began.Neither our local Home Depot or Lowes carried anything in the portable variety. We had no choice but to buy an appliance, unseen, online. For the record, this is a scary proposal, I do not recommend trying this.After searching and reading reviews and more searching, I decided portable dishwashers were a joke. More hassle than they are worth… Imagine the headache of rolling a dishwasher out to your sink, hooking it up to a faucet, plugging it in, running the discharge hose into the sink… really??? People do this… And then they have to load, unload, and undo all of those connections. Not for me.Fast forward a couple of years, we are now up to two kids… We neeed a dishwasher!! I went back to search mode and reluctantly bought this SPT getup.Here’s the deal. This dishwasher is identical to a mounted model. The only differences are the additional attachments, wheels on the bottom, counter space on top, cement weight in the rear (to counter balance the weight of dishes on an extended rack), and a power plug. I’m not hooking this up every night, I’m installing it right beside my sink!I’m 100% sure I voided any warranty doing this, however it has exceeded all expectations. I now have a dishwasher that functions just like a builtin, no moving, no hose to the sink.The process was fairly simple. I got rid of all attachments that were unnecessary, placed caster coasters under the wheels, plugged it into a well hidden extension cord and installed lines just like a regular dishwasher. Allow me to list the advantages:1. No connecting, disconnecting etc… just to wash dishes.2. Physics: The discharge pump does not have to fight gravity to make it up to the sink. It is now basically a lateral connection. This should increase the life of the pump.3. I can use my sink while the dishwasher is running… Like regular people :)4. Additional counter space. nice…5. If ever I do remodel the kitchen, and no longer have a need for the SPT, it has wheels :)… hello craigslist.6. Happy wife...Specifically regarding this particular model:We are a family of four. We cook every day. We use this dishwasher everyday. Pots, pans, ladles, tongs, forks, knives, plates, glasses… stuck on food, dried mac and cheese, greasy pans… ALL CLEAN. Seriously, ALL CLEAN. Not just “Oh, that’s good enough”, but really spotless. I am so impressed with this thing.We really could not be happier… here’s the kicker.I waited 3 years to write this review.

My husband and I bought this dishwasher for our apartment. It is easy to hook up and fits male or female faucets, fits an entire set of dishes, cleans very well, and looks sharp. I like that the cord and hose are retractable and fit inside the back of the dishwasher when not in use. It comes with measuring cups for detergent, but we used the all-in-one packs with the all-in-one setting. It worked very well!It had a little trouble with removing peanut butter (because I was sort of terrible about rinsing) and it didn't dry the greatest, but even still I would recommend this to anyone! We just opened it up after running it and let things airdry overnight before putting dishes away. It's a great dishwasher!

Definitely took a chance getting this appliance via UPS. They delivered it upside down. It does have a few very minor dents, but they do not effect the performance at all. It was well packaged in my opinion and worth the risk. Yes, mine also had water spots inside and sand in the box. This product is tested prior to shipment for sale, so water inside just makes sense to me. And since it's made in china, shipping it overseas via boat makes the sand completely normal. Unpacking it was a little difficult, being that I'm a single woman who has back problems, but I got it done eventually once my brother and a friend got it up my basement steps into the kitchen. I've been stalking this dishwasher on Amazon for over a year! It's a discontinued brand, and when it is in stock, it's gone just as quickly. I bought this specific one due to its size. I have a built in space for it under my counter and after the one that was there finally went, this was the only portable dishwasher I could find that would fit in the same space. Although a little smaller than my old one, it fits just as expected. It preformed very well on first use and I had no problems with it at all. The only complaints I have is how long the wash cycles are, and mine seems to have some wheel issues because it does not move smoothly. Being so heavy, I can't exactly check that closer on my own. I do not care for the adapter it uses to hook up to the sink either. Because it's so small, I can't leave it in place for everyday use. The faucet adapter I had for my other dishwasher fit this one perfectly, and I bought it here on Amazon back in 2014.Delta RP51505 Cache Aerator Adaptor to Standard 55/64-Inch - 27 Male ThreadOverall, I'm absolutely pleased.

 My boyfriend and I live in an apartment with no dishwasher, so this was definitely a smart purchase.I just received this portable dishwasher today.I opened the package immediately. No dents, scratches, marks or anything! It was in perfect shape!Really easy to setup and I immediately threw my dirty dishes in. I have tons of dishes; enough for 6 people. (My boyfriend and I both work crazy hectic jobs and we are known to get lazy with keeping up with dirty dishes, so they stack up.)Had no problems starting up the dishwasher. Very easy process. Decided to start with Heavy Duty and see how well it cleans everything that's been sitting for a while. (Will be writing a review after the dishes are done.)I'm so excited about not having to wash them by hand anymore! Yayayay!!!*EDIT*After washing a few loads, I am still very happy with my purchase! This little machine was definitely necessary and I hope it helps someone else make their decision in purchasing! I LOVE my dishwasher!!!

Compact and cute. When ordering these appliances make sure you measure exactly and check with your contractor or installer before you order. All of thes small appliances are so different in size.

After 2nd use, water poured out from under the unit, warping my newly installed bamboo flooring. Turns out a cracked and damaged gasket was the problem. It must have come with the unit, as my installers only hooked up electricals, water and drainage, and secured the unit with two screws. This company ONLY warranties parts. No labor to diagnose the problem or to install the damaged part. If you want them to repair it -- don't count on them actually replacing the unit -- it will cost you $95 to send the unit back to them.As to my damaged floor, they said that my insurer will have to speak to their insurer. Bad form, folks.

We needed a compact dishwasher for our small kitchen and settled on this one. It's about a year after we purchased and we love this dishwasher. It holds more than I thought it would, cleans great, and is very quiet. It did take some getting used to after having a standard size but it does a great job. The cycles do seem to take a long time but all in all I'm still very pleased a year later.

 Let's start off with the good. I was excited for this dishwasher after i read all the great reviews. It washes dishes beautifully. Bad...it came partially disassembled. It wasn't easy for me making sure the pump gasket was on correctly and I have plenty of plumbing experience. I cant imagine that its easy for most people. Second there was a thumping sound when washing dishes. Upon investigation the top water jet hits the side ever so slightly when it spins. Im sure its a simple get a new part fix but come on. If i had to do over again I would buy a slightly better brand of dishwasher.

Kinda lame leaks on the first try better off spending more coin for better production lame China crap this was my second one thought it would be better but I seem to have thought this would be better don't get this one spend an extra 100 bucks and get something better better than wasted time installing a a turd!

So far this dishwasher is very quiet and does an amazing job washing the dishes also fits in a tight space we had room for well we have had this dishwasher for a month and now we are having problems with the dishwasher finishing a cycle or Evan getting it to restart after it stoped after filling the dishwasher
June 3, 2017
Way better than i expected. I don't even rinse and they come out sparkling clean. I had no place for a bigger dishwasher so I thought I would have to settle on a mediocre clean but very happy with purchase. Finally don't have to wash dishes!
January 12, 2017
Wish had better instruction. Never installed one before took a while to figure out where to hook up water supply. Now we have a slow leak, but the dish washer does work well. It was purchased to use at the downstairs bar

Happy Holidays to Me!!! This was my gift to myself when I came into some unexpected cash. It arrived on 12/29/15. It's brand new and so I will come back and update after I've had it for a while, but here are my thoughts and observations so far...The Outer box did have a gouge in it, but the inner box was in perfect condition and the unit itself is well protected. The unit was in perfect condition coming out of the box.So far I love my new SPT countertop dishwasher. I've had full sized dishwashers in the past and I've lived in situations where I had to hand-wash dishes. Like most people, I prefer a dishwasher partly because doing dishes is a chore and partly because a dishwasher just gets the dishes cleaner than you ever will doing them by hand. I've been hand-washing for the last 6 months. I'm renting a small house that was built in the 1920s and there is no room in the kitchen for a full size dishwasher and so I began researching countertop options. I was pleased by the number of positive reviews for this unit, and it was on sale so I went ahead and got it. It arrived a full day before Amazon said it would - that's always nice!OK, I'm going to go through a pretty thorough review here because it seems that many people don't provide accurate or complete information. So, this is accurate and as complete as I can be...UNIT MEASUREMENTSThe unit as it measures in my home: 17.25 (H) X 21.5 (W) X 19.75 (D).The power cord is about 65" long (it has many bends from how it's packaged and so it cannot be completely straightened)The hoses (which come already connected to the sink attachment and are also coiled and will not straighten completely) are about 60" long.The length of the power cord and hoses allows for some flexibility in placement relative to the sink, but you will not be able to set it up across the room from the sink unless you're planning to put it near the sink for each use.According to the product description, the unit weighs 48 lbs. I lift 30-lb bags of dog food with some regularity, and also just bought a 50-lb bag of ice melt. From comparison (without putting it on a scale), I'd say it is right around the 50-lb mark. This is empty, with no dishes and no water inside. So as you decide where you're going to put it, if you're using a portable rack or other device, make sure it can hold at least 100 lbs - 50 for the unit, plus 8 or 9 lbs for the water, plus the weight of your dishes (another 8-10 lbs) - total about 70 lbs when full and in use, plus some cushion just to be safe.UNIT NUANCESThe door has a very secure snap closure and you must pull with a pretty good force to open it. I'm hoping that will loosen up just a little as time goes on because right now I have to put downward pressure on top of the unit in order to open the door - I've got my unit sitting on a thin-legged metal rack (see pics) and so the rack wobbles a bit if I pull hard without the downward support to hold the rack still. The shelf unit I'm using has metal mesh shelves. In order to create a flat surface, I also put a piece of plywood down and covered that with aluminum foil to create a moisture barrier to the wood. Then I put a towel down just be a little more attractive to look at.My dinner plates are 11 inches in diameter. Slanting them forward a bit allows them to fit just fine. The description for the unit indicates that 10-inch plates will fit without a need for slanting. I would say that's accurate.DETERGENT/DRYING AIDI'm using Cascade Complete gel packets. This product has Jet Dry in it and so I do not need to add extra drying agent. This packet fits perfectly into the larger side of the detergent compartment. NOTE: because you are not using an extra/separate drying agent (if you use a product that has it already included), the light telling you that you are low on drying agent will be lit every time the power is on. Ignore it.WASH TIMESMany people have complained about the length of the cycles. I'm not sure why there is so much complaint or confusion. It takes as long as a full sized dishwasher to clean the dishes. And furthermore, the instruction manual has a page (see pics I've included) that tells you exactly how long each cycle type will take. There are several cycles:Heavy/Pots & Pans (100 minutes)Normal (85 minutes)Light (75 minutes)Glass (70 minutes)Speed (45 minutes)and Pre-wash/soak (10 minutes).The Heavy cycle has a double wash cycle.The Heavy, Normal, Light and Glass cycles all include a heated dry cycle.The speed and the pre-wash do not include any drying.The other major difference in the cycles is the temperature of the wash/rinse water:Heavy and Normal having the highest (wash 131*F and rinse 149*F)The Speed has the lowest temperatures (wash 122*F and rinse 131*F).Even the heavy and normal options are not technically reaching a temperature that is considered sterilizing (170* or hotter), but it's much closer than you could get compared to hand-washing.I've only used the Normal cycle, which according to the manual is an 85-minute wash. I've done 3 loads so far. The first I did with hot tap water. I made sure the water was at its hottest before turning off the tap to connect the hose and turning it back on. The dishwasher will heat the water to the correct temperature for the option you've chosen, but clearly starting with already hot water will shorten the time to heat the water. So, starting with very hot tap water, the Normal wash cycle from the moment I pressed the start button to the moment the end-of-cycle beep happened was 87 minutes. The next load I did, I used the cold tap water. I was curious to see if there would be a major difference. There was. This time it took 125 minutes (just over 2 hours). So using cold water is an option, but it will add a little more than 30 minutes to the process because the unit needs to first heat the water in order to properly wash the dishes. The third load I did (yesterday) I used the hot tap, though I didn't give it time to get to its absolute hottest. This load took exactly 90 minutes - just 5 minutes longer than the manual suggests. Again, this is the typical length of a full-sized dishwasher on a normal cycle as well.DRY DISHESThe Normal cycle that I'm using includes dry time. I've made a point to be standing at the dishwasher when the end-of-cycle beep sounds so that I could see if the dishes are in fact dry. I've interrupted the beep to open the door. The ceramic dishes (plates, bowls), metal dog food bowls, plastic cups and silverware are all dry to the touch (and baked hot). The tupperware type pieces tend to still have some water/steam on them. But that is also typical of most full size dishwashers. Letting the dishes sit in the rack, with the door open for 20-30 minutes and all dishes are completely dry and cool enough to put away.NOISEThe sound of the unit in cycle (the swish of your dishes being cleaned) is very quiet. I cannot hear it outside the kitchen, even from the adjacent room. The only time it seems loud is when it's draining water into the sink. It sounds like someone just turned on your tap to full - so if you have a metal sink, it's water hitting metal. If you have a porcelain sink, it's water hitting porcelain. If you want to assess that volume before you buy, just turn your tap on full and walk into the next room. Better yet, be in the other room and have someone else turn it on so you can hear what that initial water-hitting-surface sounds like because that's the loudest moment.The end-of-cycle beep is a repeated beep that lasts just 8 seconds. I was awake and listening for the beep from my bedroom (just 2 rooms away) and almost missed it. It definitely would not disturb sleep unless you're sleeping in the kitchen or are super, hyper-sensitive to any kind of noise while sleeping - and I'm a light sleeper.GETTING IT HOOKED UPOK, so I'm a 5'2" woman. I was able to lift the unit from the floor to a step stool and then from the stool to the rack on which it sits (see pics). It would definitely be easier with a second person because it's a bit bulky and awkward. But I didn't have anyone available to help and I was able to manage. I used the door handle and the metal lip at the top of the back of the unit for hand-holds. Remember to LIFT WITH YOUR KNEES - it is heavy enough to cause pain or injury to a back if you are already weak in that area or have a previous injury.The adapter has TWO washers - a thin one that is well-seated into the adapter and a thicker one that easily falls out. When I first connected to my faucet, I thought the thick one was from my faucet and so removed it out of the way. The test run leaked a lot around the faucet. I then put that thick washer on top of the thin one and reattached the adapter with both washers in place. NO MORE LEAKING at the faucet!!!!I connected the hoses to the back of the unit as directed. I hand-tightened both. I ran a 10-minute pre-wash cycle to test for leaks. The drain hose leaked. I disconnected it, turned the unit for better access, rather than trying to just reach behind, made sure the connection was seated properly, hand-tightened and then used a pliers to gently tighten. I got another full turn (or 2) before it felt fully tightened - careful not to over tighten as it is plastic and that can break if tightened too far. I also wrapped that connection with some plumbers tape just for good measure. I ran another pre-wash (10-minute) cycle NO LEAKS anywhere! Now I was ready to do a proper load of dishes.CLEANING THE DISHESI feed my dogs using a food puzzle toy (Kongs) which involves mixing their kibble with soft foods such as pumpkin puree or yogurt. It's difficult to get that all out and properly cleaned by hand. I had several of those that needed cleaning. I also washed their regular food bowls - the green one (in the pic) had fish oil and cranberry powder residue that I've been unable to get fully cleaned off for the last 6 months (that's 6 months of residue!). The Kongs and the bowls (and the rest of the dishes) came out looking like new! The residue was gone and there was no weird film that others have mentioned they've experienced. I think they may be using too much detergent, or not using any kind of drying aid at all.You will need to rinse off all large food particles. Remember, this portable unit is not connected to a garbage disposal and so cannot cope with large chunks of food particles. But, sauce residue, chocolate powder caked on a spoon, cheese and egg stuck on a spatula - all came off no problem.There is a 3-part filter system and you will likely need to clean it with some regularity (every few months) to keep the dishwasher from getting gummed up.BETWEEN USESThe hoses are pressurized and so you only need to turn the faucet on a little to get it set. You can leave the faucet on all night if you start the dishwasher at bedtime as you will not be using/running water all night due to the pressurized hose.Be sure to TURN OFF THE FAUCET before you try to unhook the hose from the faucet. Also, be sure to PRESS THE RED BUTTON and wait for the water to drain before disconnecting the hose from the faucet. Once disconnected, you'll want to hold the end down and the length of the hose up to drain the last of the water that's in there before tucking the hose into its storage position - this is simply to avoid drips.Final note: the unit was a little damp inside as were the hoses upon arrival. I believe this is from testing at the factory before packaging. Many have mentioned it. Also, the unit and the hoses smell like new appliance. I can't smell it unless I'm right next to it, and I expect that after I've had it out and in use for a month or two, that smell will be gone.So far, I am super happy with this unit - the ease of setting up, the quality of the clean. I will check in again in few months to update.

My dislike of doing dishes turned most of the counter space of my small Manhattan kitchen into physics-defying stacks of procrastination. This countertop dishwasher takes up about 60% of usable counter space in my apartment, a sacrifice I'm willing to make but for city dwellers, definitely measure it out.This unit is perfect for one to two people. My loaner husband no longer lives next door to me so I was apprehensive about installing the faucet adaptor myself, turns out it was a cinch. I found a helpful video online which showed the tool I needed to get: [...]Normally I don't read manuals, this one I read cover to cover. Some of the typos and wording are good for a laugh and its focus is on how to load a hypothetically uniform set of dishes no one actually owns. Fortunately, the Amazon community helped me fill in the blanks, I'm very grateful for their assistance. Here's what I learned from them and from using the machine:1. Turn on your hot water all the way when you've got it set up and are ready to run it. The cold water will tax the motor.2. If you're using Cascade Complete gel packs, those go in the detergent compartment on the door. There's a little basket on the left side that's for dishwashing tablets. The reason I like the Cascade Complete Gel Packs is it's got everything in it, including the rinse agent that keeps your glasses from streaking.3. You don't have to stress out if you don't turn the faucet off immediately after the cycle is done. Water won't continue to run. I mean, I wouldn't go on vacation without turning off the faucet but you don't have to obsess that there's going to be some water pressure build-up that's going to shoot your shiny new countertop dishwasher into space if you're absorbed in another activity.4. It doesn't dry plastic, but does dry my plates and pots. A few times I rinsed a couple of dishes again, they were super shiny so I was suspicious maybe the Cascade Gel Pack left some residue, so basically I ran them under water again because they looked too clean, starting to worry that I have trust issues.5. The packaging is so sturdy, Wile E. Coyote could have dropped an anvil on it and it would have been fine. I've received mutilated deliveries from other companies with everything from footprints on top of the box to holes where the fork lift went through it. This can withstand whatever fury the delivery company dishes out.6. The adaptor on your faucet takes getting used to. It produces a very strong stream of water so you only need to turn your faucet on a little to use it. I've already had a few accidental wet t-shirt contests but the good news is I won.7. It's very quiet. Sometimes too quiet, I get paranoid it's not running but it is, it's just using its indoor voice. There's about a minute total where there's audible noise.8. The hoses that connect from the unit to the faucet are annoyingly stiff. It's good to know that it's not going to spring a leak any time in the near future but I have to figure out some hook system to make them less obtrusive.9. There's a plastic warning in the manual and one of my Tupperware lids didn't make it. It was probably eighteen years old so it lived a good life. I've washed plenty of other plastic items that made it out just fine.10. Don't forget to turn the power on the dishwasher off before you unload it. If you don't, it makes this annoying beeping sound that the manual describes as "mooing". I assure you, there are no barnyard sounds with this machine.I'm very happy with my purchase. I would give it 4 and 3/4 stars because of the hose, amount of counter space it takes up and its not drying everything 100% completely. It's not perfect, but it's very close and what more could a girl ask for.

I really love this little countertop dishwasher! It arrived yesterday, and if I get good resolution from customer service regarding a minor problem, the review might go up to 5 stars.As with it's predecessor, it arrives in an enormous box within a box. I unpacked it on my front porch. Because of my husband's back issues, I wrangled this pretty much on my own. Be careful.I recommend finding the owner manual online and reading through that before your dw arrives. It has useful tips, like it's best to have 2 people moving and unpacking this thing. I also watched a helpful Edgestar installation Video online (it was for the DWP61, but they are similar enough). The most important point made in that video is about attaching the hoses in the back. Of course you need to connect them in the right places but it's even more important to be SUPER GENTLE while you screw those hoses on. The fixtures are plastic, and if you force anything, you will strip the threads and your machine will leak and you will be very unhappy. I'm pretty sure a lot of complaints about leaks in the predecessor for this machine are because people connected the hoses wrong, and damaged them in the process.Measure your space carefully. The bottom footprint is slightly smaller than the overall dimensions, and it is supposed to be on a flat, level surface. This was a minor issue for us because of the location, but we have adjusted.Speaking of damage, the handle of the cutlery basket arrived broken. This is an extremely fragile piece of the dishwasher and I am hoping it will be replaced. I can still use my dishwasher - and the handle is so flimsy i don't think I'd use it to pick up the basket when it is full even if the handle weren't broken. That said, if you are gentle with the basket it should work fine. I think the key for this dishwasher is to always be gentle with it. some parts are a bit cheap, but I bought this dishwasher for $269 - they have to save money somewhere!The range of wash cycles is good. There's a great list of them in the owner manual, and they are easy to identify and select when using the machine. The amount of water listed in the specs does not (apparently) include the full cycle. Most loads take between 10 and 12 gallons of water per load. I like that there is a rinse only cycle, as well as a wash, but don't dry, cycle. That one takes only 45 minutes. Like most dishwashers, the dry cycle is not really complete, but that's typical.The deciding factor for me choosing this particular machine: I can put in 10.5 inch diameter plates. YAY!Overall, I'm very happy!

We bought one last month but the pump showed up broken. We returned and reordered and the new one works perfect...HUGE CAPACITY and Very Easy SetupWe put a piece of plywood across our houses laundry room sink and tied it in there. The unit is VERY quiet except for when it’s draining which only lasts about 10 seconds anyways
May 5, 2018
We received this dishwasher 2 days earlier then expected(thank god)Setup was fairly simple, at least the dishwasher part. We ended up having to buy a whole new faucet because we had the pull down kind. The quick connect that the dishwasher came with is decent. The only downfall i would say is that the water is VERY pressurized, which obviously it needs to be in order to go through the hose. It just sucks when you go to rinse a spoon and forget and suddenly its like your sitting in the splash section at Sea World!The dishwasher itself is actually very large, I would say about the size of a microwave, probably a bit larger. It can fit quite a lot inside of it, I've been able to fit all of my dishes and most of my pots and pans in it. Finally that brings me to the wash cycle part. For a tabletop dishwasher I did not realize how amazing this thing would clean my dishes. Im able to put a pan with stuck on spaghetti sauce in it and it comes out sparkling clean. I usually only use the heavy duty and normal cycles but there are also 5 other cycles (7 in total) that can be performed.I am very very very happy with this purchase! Anyone that is thinking about getting a tabletop dishwasher I strongly recommend this one!
June 5, 2018
It’s the little engine that does. While it’s bigger than the microwave it’s far more useful. I must say at one point I was skeptical about getting a smaller dishwasher my house is so small there’s nowhere else to it. Outside of being compact and saving water compared to my dish washing. It looks nice enough and feels mostly solid. Super simple controls. There’s a bit of the hard plastics on the bottom from but that’s where all the action happens so I’m assuming access panel.
June 14, 2018
Works great and hold so many dishes. The only negative is it does take up a lot of counter space but I expected it too so it’s ok.
May 13, 2018
I love my new dishwasher! Easy installation and perfect for just me and my huge mugs!
June 11, 2018
Would be 5 stars, but came slightly damaged. We live in a RV, so adding a dishwasher made it feel more like home. Works great! The aerator on the sink adaptor sucks though
June 6, 2018
I had difficulties with installing it and it was hard to find help! Also the quality of washing leaves a lot to be desired

Own a prewar co-op with a way cramped kitchen. My unit was most likely the coal scoopers unit at one point in time. Looks great, fits everywhere, cleans thoroughly and easy to use. The top can also function as additional prep space. I keep those flat plastic cutting mats on it to keep it looking decent. Runs quiet.Out of the box, the unit comes with a metal tap adaptor that locks onto a plastic faucet adaptor on the unit. There are two hoses; one to bring water to the washer and the other to drain. The instructions say to use cold water which I do because I lack experience, this is my first dishwasher and I am frugal about my hot water use. Normal setting runs about two hours. Speed setting runs an hour and two minutes. I do not know if the water is heated.I always use cold water from the tap, the speed setting, rinse aid and an all in one tablet with good results. I space and place efficiently most of the time. The dishwasher is plenty hot at the end of the cycle. The guide states to crack open the door for a few minutes after washing to allow for a more complete dry. There is a dryer heat element lining the bottom of the washer. You can get a pretty good facial putting your face by the door after a load. For what its worth there is a rinse cycle and that for sure does not heat the water nor do I think engages the drying element.Unless there is some really caked and baked stuff on there my wash, often including at any given time an combination of coffee maker elements, goblets (mugs, glasses and wine glasses), the pitcher I use to feed as well as my Zero Water 23 cup dispenser itself, pots and pans, the occasional hefty flimsy leftover plastic thingies, Modell sports water bottles, my go-to utility plastic strainer and of course dishes and flatware come out spotless and dry. Not a thing has melted in there yet. Every now and again I need to put the water bottles on a drying rack because like life, those things are complicated and who wants to wash a water bottle only to have the sitting water harbor biologics?Be cognizant to empty the outlet hoses after use. In the last five months, I had to run a load with Finish machine cleaner once after a heavy use period when the unit get a tinge of funk scent. Worked like a charm and I still have my two emergency bottles sitting on tap. Pretty sure experiences may vary though. I am big on the sanitary thing. My pre-war brass pipes and budget faucet (literally less that like thirty bucks and I have to admit that thing looks good but kind of feels rickety) have held up so far. God willing and knock on wood. Keep the fittings on the adaptor snug but please do not be a rookie and over tighten. No need.Obviously, I recommend this dishwasher.

We've been dishwasher-less for years because we have a small kitchen. Finally decided to go with this portable SPT model because it wasn't permanent and we could move it around. It's somewhat of a hassle to attach it everytime but the time it saves to manually washing dishes doesn't compare. The attachment to the faucet is actually easy to use. No leaks. Dishwasher cleans great but I do have the drying issues that others have mentioned and I use the the jet dry rinse aid. I think most dishwasher perform the same way when their is standing water on top of dishes. Value wise this is a slam dunk. Get it if you dread washing your own dishes everyday. Worth not standing in front of your sink for a 30 to 40 minutes washing dishes the old school way.
April 11, 2017
package arrived on time. Was a bit worried I would have to do some mucking about to hook up since I have a pull out faucet, but the included attachment worked perfectly with it. Machine functions great right out of the box and is easy to setup. Had some dishes with old dried on food I ran through to test it and they came out clean. Can hold a days worth of dishes (including cooking pots/pans) for our family of three quite easily. Noise is minimal.The only things I could complain about is the water and power cords are relatively short which means it needs to sit right up against the kitchen counter. The top doubles as a counter though so space isn't really lost. You also cant use the spigot while washer is running, but that is not a fault of the product just a result of how it operates.One thing to note, dishes did not seem to dry well inside washer even with the door cracked open. But as this product does not have an electric dryer I cant really complain about that. Just note I've found I need to unload the clean dishes into a drying rack if I want them to dry fully.

I bought this little gem during a Christmas sale (on another site, so be sure to shop around) because I was having carpal tunnel release surgery on both of my hands. I chose the smaller portable model because my kitchen is early 1950's small and I wanted a dishwasher that would fit into my snug little space as well as to function as an island. This is perfect. I've run it several times and the dishes come out dry, clean, and spotless. It is quiet and my dishes feel so clean, they're practically sterilized.The machine arrived at the store where I picked it up. The box looked like it had been through hell, but I inspected everything after unpacking and there were no scratches, dents, or wheel problems. With the help of a series of 3 YouTube videos, I was able to set it up, plug it in, fill it, and run it right away!So far, it doesn't leak and holds a lot more dishes than you would think it could. Doesn't leak (some reviewers have said that theirs did) and is pretty quiet.I have washed plastic, glass, silverware, wood, and pots and 12" pans in here without any problems. I mostly use the dirty dish/slow wash setting (about an hour and a half) because I want my dishes as clean as possible and I run mine over night, but I'll bet the lower/faster setting (about 45 minutes) would work just fine. If I try it and it doesn't, I'll update.I didn't get water softener salt, but I did get Finish brand (liquid and quantum soap powdered gel packets). Some have said that powdered soap doesn't work in this machine, but I haven't had a problem at all. Maybe because the whole compressed tablet drops at once? I also absolutely don't open mine early in the wash to let the door fully open like it does in the video...I just start it and walk away.This thing has quickly made its way into the top 5 all time must-have-can't-live-without appliances in my kitchen. Anyone trying to take this would have to pry it from my (literally) cold, dead hands. Lol!

Love this dishwasher. I needed a smaller dishwasher, and this was one of the most affordable ones I could find. It installed easily, runs very quietly, and cleans very well. Don't let the lower price fool you, this dish washer is very well built. All the fittings are standard, so no problems with plumbing installation.
March 14, 2017
I purchased this dishwasher for the kitchen of a very small, old house that doesn't have a lot of kitchen space. It's the perfect fit for what I need. The layout of the racks on the bottom drawer took me some time to adjust to, in order to learn the most efficient way to load, but it eventually clicked. I've had no issues with the functionality of the machine, though it does not internally dry the dishes (I just open the door for about 12 hours after a load has completed). So far, great product that saves me from hand washing all my dishes. Great product for price and size of it.
June 8, 2017
Works very well. Has surpassed my expectations. Larger than I had anticipated. We installed it in our 5th wheel and it fits great. Much more quiet than I thought it would be.
April 30, 2017
Everything seems to work ok. The issue we have is parts need to install the DW. It does NOT included any Dishwasher Installation Kit likes EZ-FLO 48336 Dishwasher Installation Kit or InSinkErator DWC-00 Dishwasher Connector Kit. By the time you buy extra kits to connect this dishwasher. The cost of the machine is not attractive any more. It's a waste of time to run back and forth to warehouse to get the missing parts/kit. The manual does not say when the light flashing indicates the dishwasher is operating or pausing for new command??? Why can they have easy and straight forward instruction to follow?
March 14, 2017
Great little dishwasher, very quiet. Only negative is that it has no installation kit, so you end up having to spend about an extra $100 to get the various pieces and parts to do the hookup. If not for the lack of a installation kit, it would be five stars.
September 29, 2017
Dishwasher arrived as expected! Double boxed and it really is beautiful. Installation was difficult, not due to the machine but due to the fact that we had never installed a dishwasher before.I like it, cleans everything really nice. It should be noted that they machine DOES NOT dry your dishes. While it cleans them really well, there is no heating mechanism in this machine to dry them so the dishes are really saturated and wet after a cycle. Had I known this, I probably would have gone with a different dishwasher.***Edited; Your dishes will dry if they are left in the dishwasher after the cycle is over for several hours. I guess I was unloading too soon. Great purchase and hold WAY more than I thought it would. (Family of 5! 2 adults and three kids under age of 7)
June 26, 2017
Dishwasher works well. We do as others suggested and open the door slightly when the washer is finished. That way we don't have a problem with the dishes being wet.
October 24, 2017
So far so good , works and cleans the dishes and is quiet doing it. Saved $200 with a stainless steel tub vs a plastic tub.

October 2016. Wanted to give the machine a few months of service before writing this review, of which the theme is in a word, outstanding. What a little pistol this Frigidaire has been thus far! I come from great kitchens and good, expensive, full-size dishwashers; I'm picky and attentive to machinery. I dread buying plastic-based machines made in China.Was not sure what to expect from this "apartment" dishwasher. Well guess what, it's great! I'm 3 full months in. I had it professionally installed by a plumber who knew what to do; a good place to start. I run it 3-4x a week, I keep the rinse-aid compartment full and I use a small-to-medium amount of dish washing detergent and use the LIGHT wash feature every time as an energy-saving attempt ~ it has never failed to deliver sparkling dishes, serve-ware and flatware which are done in the middle of the night (another energy-saving attempt) using the 2 or 4--hour delay start feature. If you're noise sensitive, this is a normal-to-quiet machine, but again I had a real pro install it with the incentive to do it well, no half-baked install here... I would bet that some of the complaints here stem from people getting excited about this inexpensive price point, but then throwing a home-brewed install at it. Just an observation. It's great looking, my kitchen looks like a little Paris or New York City kitchen. People notice it! Women, go ooohhh this dishwasher is cute! It has a sparkly stainless interior which perhaps is staying so nice as I keep the rinse-aid compartment full. Ask me any questions here if you want - I'm an appliance snob and I've paid close attention to this little guy so I could make a thoughtful review for all of you, my Amazonian brethren. BTW, the delivery was good, I opened it with the plumber present a couple days before install as I had read the reviews in which some arrived damaged and I didn't want my install appointment day botched by opening a botched machine. He and I determined it was all systems go and he returned a couple days later for a 3-hour install which included a little under-sink re-routing of a pipe to make room for it. I paid him $600 and was glad for it. How exciting to have this cute dishwasher to my rescue, and honestly it works like a trooper. Super happy about it!PS - we all use dishwashers differently, and if you believe commercials and marketing that make it look like dishwashers can clean an un-rinsed lasagna platter, we'll you're just inexperienced. I don't put anything EGGY or CHEESY or heavily FATTED into my machine without 80% rinsing it with warm water first. I don't want stink or fat rinsing into my new DW pipes so I manage that over the trash can or down a warm sudsy kitchen sink first. While we're on the subject of care & performance, I also run my garbage disposal with hot water and a little dish soap before I hit my start button (in most cases, your garbage disposal shares an exit pipe with your DW, so you should just know that whatever unfinished business you have in your garbage disposal drain will present itself as odors or problems over in your machine. Love this little dynamo 18" machine!February 2018 - still great! Sparkling dishes and a super clean machine interior. Every now and then I take a cotton ball with some alcohol on it and run it around the edges and seams of the interior compartments just because I like it clean & shiny and this lifts the lime deposits. One of the best appliance purchases I've ever made.

I bought this to replace my previous Frigidaire dishwasher, the precursor to this one, which finally quit after 21 years of service! I loved that little thing. The new one looks good and is very quiet, which makes me happy. However, there are numerous things I do not like. I absolutely hate the placement of the silverware caddy. It sits toward the center and blocks space for larger items and dishes too. This is just a pathetic design and makes no sense whatsoever. My old model had the caddy on the side, out of the way. And, who is going to take the time to put one piece of silverware into each of those little slots? Not me. That also makes no sense to me. So, I removed the slotted gizmo and will likely toss it in the trash where it belongs. The top "shelf" holds way fewer glasses than my old model and the lower one is smaller too. Forget about washing mixing bowls, pots and pans, or anything else that is on the large size unless you take out the silverware caddy and anything else on the bottom tray. You might squeeze in two large items but it would be smarter to just wash them by hand. Newer is NOT always better and this is a perfect example. If it lasts half as long as my old model, I will be surprised but content.February 19, 2018 update - I have used my dishwasher for about six months now and I am happier with it. I love that it is so quiet and my dishes are sparkling clean every time. I am happy with my purchase and would most likely buy it again.

If you want a dishwasher but lack a suitable 24” space next to the sink, and hadn’t thought it possible to retrofit one without installing new lower cabinets (and spending way more money), look no further!With this size of appliance, I was able to cut out a cabinet next to my sink and slip it right in. The 18" width is, of course, a smaller size of dishwasher than most (typically 24”), but it is nevertheless a huge upgrade from hand-washing dishes. I can’t imagine it would be that great for a large family, but for a two- or three-member household it is very efficient.If you know how to use a modern dishwasher correctly, you will find this model cleans dishes very well. It’s amusing to me that people don’t consider that perhaps they need to learn where to place dishes inside, or how much detergent to use, and write off the cause of their troubles as poor design instead. Any modern name-brand dishwasher will clean dishes well if it’s being used right, including this one.

I bought this as a replacement for a GE 18" dishwasher and I have to say that I am very impressed by it's performance. The ONLY reason I am giving it 4 stars is it's price. Smaller units shouldn't cost more than larger units. Period. That said, I couldn't be happier. I find that I'm using less detergent and getting better results. One of the previous reviews for this machine mentioned that the utensil basket was a bit wonky. It is in that it comes with dividers for each piece but I've found that the divider and handles can be removed so you don't have to bother with that if you don't want it. You can also make the single basket into two. I like that I have this option. The machine has two spray arms for better cleaning top. Wonderful for getting things clean on the top rack. I do wish it were quieter but all in all this is a wonderful machine.

This is the second one that I have purchased in three years and it now is malfunctioning. The washer-motor went out in the first one I bought and now the seal is coming loose on my new one! Upon further inspection of the leaking, I found that the spot-welds on the retaining area that holds the seal in place are rusted out already! This dishwasher has only been installed and in-use for approximately 6 months. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone.

Great dishwasher, but very poorly implemented construction for the front panel. I didn't even get a chance to install the dishwasher; the stainless steel panel was dented on arrival(like other reviews have mentioned). Poor quality control or packaging.
June 16, 2017
Shipped fast. Arrived in perfect condition. Works well at cleaning dishes without prewashing them so far so good
September 15, 2017
perfect for my needs. I love the design and the size.
June 8, 2018
Well i'm no different then some of the post of read. My unit came damaged to the front stainless steel panel with dents. So, bummed!!
June 16, 2017
Dishwashers delivery box damaged. There was a dent in the front door.
March 30, 2017
SAME!!! The entire front was dented right over the computer. The manufacturer promptly sent me a new front (which makes me think this happens a LOT). The main frame was cracked. The distributor blamed the manufacturer, then Fisher Paykel said that in the warranty any "in transit" damage is the fault of the distributor, But, this distributor is NOT an authorized so again, dead end, no responsibility. Also, all the parts after one load were floating in 6 inches of water which was blamed on the dent. DO NOT BUY THIS.

Arrived badly damaged, similar to other posts here. Although a slightly different model, was not able to post my review of that one, and this is very close - maybe an 8 instead of 9 in the model number? Did not see the damage to the package at first because it was tiny. After opening, found front of the SS washer panel crushed badly enough that I didn't know if it could hold water. Immediately followed-up on this and was given a refund with freedom to dispose as i wished. I wasn't about to plug it in, and it's been sitting in storage for spring cleanup. How might a packaged product have more damage on the outside than the inside, and be of the same nature for many people? I have some ideas and invite yours. I notice the manufacturer also makes a lot of CPAP supplies. They must be good at making seals (?)

This dishwasher is made with surprisingly cheap plastic. Mine broke after less than 2 years of normal use. Way too expensive for the quality of parts used.

Waist of money, do not even think of purchasing this machine. Dishes will not be clean if you don't use the high temp wash cycle. The heating system sucks. All dishes are still dripping wet. Never have I ever been so disappointed.

This product is awful. It is called a dishwasher, but it does not wash dishes. It came with my house, and after 2 months, DISHWASHER was my job title, not this useless box's job title. I use it as an auto-draining dish rack to air dry my dishes after *I* wash them. Or after my girlfriend washes them - also washing dishes makes her angry.

Bought this for the wife as a surprise to replace our 20-year-old Maytag. The surprise was on me. Installed it and I can't say enough bad things about this machine. I and my wife would rather have the old one back. This thing is so poorly designed you can't imagine. Doesn't clean the dishes at all. The rack for the silverware has no place to hang it, just flops around in there. Doesn't have good dish placement. It is Awful!
January 12, 2018
Excellent!

Love this dishwasher. I needed a smaller dishwasher, and this was one of the most affordable ones I could find. It installed easily, runs very quietly, and cleans very well. Don't let the lower price fool you, this dish washer is very well built. All the fittings are standard, so no problems with plumbing installation.
March 14, 2017
I purchased this dishwasher for the kitchen of a very small, old house that doesn't have a lot of kitchen space. It's the perfect fit for what I need. The layout of the racks on the bottom drawer took me some time to adjust to, in order to learn the most efficient way to load, but it eventually clicked. I've had no issues with the functionality of the machine, though it does not internally dry the dishes (I just open the door for about 12 hours after a load has completed). So far, great product that saves me from hand washing all my dishes. Great product for price and size of it.
June 8, 2017
Works very well. Has surpassed my expectations. Larger than I had anticipated. We installed it in our 5th wheel and it fits great. Much more quiet than I thought it would be.
April 30, 2017
Everything seems to work ok. The issue we have is parts need to install the DW. It does NOT included any Dishwasher Installation Kit likes EZ-FLO 48336 Dishwasher Installation Kit or InSinkErator DWC-00 Dishwasher Connector Kit. By the time you buy extra kits to connect this dishwasher. The cost of the machine is not attractive any more. It's a waste of time to run back and forth to warehouse to get the missing parts/kit. The manual does not say when the light flashing indicates the dishwasher is operating or pausing for new command??? Why can they have easy and straight forward instruction to follow?
March 14, 2017
Great little dishwasher, very quiet. Only negative is that it has no installation kit, so you end up having to spend about an extra $100 to get the various pieces and parts to do the hookup. If not for the lack of a installation kit, it would be five stars.
September 29, 2017
Dishwasher arrived as expected! Double boxed and it really is beautiful. Installation was difficult, not due to the machine but due to the fact that we had never installed a dishwasher before.I like it, cleans everything really nice. It should be noted that they machine DOES NOT dry your dishes. While it cleans them really well, there is no heating mechanism in this machine to dry them so the dishes are really saturated and wet after a cycle. Had I known this, I probably would have gone with a different dishwasher.***Edited; Your dishes will dry if they are left in the dishwasher after the cycle is over for several hours. I guess I was unloading too soon. Great purchase and hold WAY more than I thought it would. (Family of 5! 2 adults and three kids under age of 7)

Dishwasher works well. We do as others suggested and open the door slightly when the washer is finished. That way we don't have a problem with the dishes being wet.

So far so good , works and cleans the dishes and is quiet doing it. Saved $200 with a stainless steel tub vs a plastic tub.
