We purchased this Kitchenaid about a month ago, shortly before Christmas. A good time to test it. My wife says she loves it which is very good hear after all the things she had to say about the LG we replaced with it. (The LG comments were getting ugly.) It cleans without prewashing and the dishes come out clean and dry, other that the normal recessed bottoms of glasses and things. The install seemed a little harder than the couple I have done in the past. You may even want to take a picture of the front bottom plate so you know how it goes back on. I thought I knew but spent about half an hour replacing it. Overall it works great.
