Yes, this dishwasher is quiet, but it falls short in so many other ways I have to give it 1 star. I cannot believe I paid almost $1000 for this; it is absolutely not worth it.
Yes it is quiet. I wanted a really quiet dishwasher, so I bought it. But it can’t get the basics right.
One reason it is quiet is because - I assume - that it doesn’t have the vent that many dishwasher have. This brings me to the first major pain with this dishwasher. If you don’t open the door and prop it open after a cycle the steam doesn’t dissipate and instead condensates on everything, leaving your dishes wet. It doesn’t matter how long you wait, if you don’t open the door after the cycle finishes you will come back hours later to wet dishes.
They could at least have worked round this fundamental flaw by alerting you when the dishwasher has finished, but this has been botched too. When the cycle completes, it makes a few quiet beeps, and then goes silent. These should quietly repeat periodically for a couple of hours until you open or turn it off. It’s way too easy to miss the existing beep.
They boast that the dishwasher also has an “InfoLight”. Apparently this is a registered trademark. Did they also patent this? I really hope not. It’s garbage. The light shines when the dishwasher is on. Once the dishwasher is finished, the light goes off. So, given that I usually use a 1.5 hour cycle, for 22.5 hours per day, the light is off. Off means one of two things: the dishwasher has finished a cycle, or the dishwasher is off. If you don’t hear the finishing beeps, the light being off sure isn’t going to remind you to open the dishwasher. And remember that if you don’t open it immediately, you end up with wet dishes. This light could actually be useful if it turned GREEN and stayed on until you open it or turn it off.
The only other thing the InfoLight does is flash if you open the dishwasher mid-cycle. If you close it again it will flash to alert you that you need to turn it back on. This is meant to be helpful, but what would be a LOT more helpful is to do what literally EVERY other dishwasher I’ve ever used is to automatically start up again once you close the door. Instead, for some inexplicable reason you have to press the resume button to resume. WHY?
Finally, if you do open it midcycle or forget to turn it off after the cycle completes and have the door open in the horizontal position, the slightest brush of your clothing against the touch-sensitive buttons will activate them. This can change the cycle or some how screw up the mid cycle so that even if you do press resume and then close the door the red light will mysteriously continue to flash.
With a few small software changes this dishwasher could be better. But I’m stuck with this expensive machine now. I really really wish I hadn’t bought it. DO NOT BUY!
