    Poor job cleaning
    by: Anonymous

    There is no way to stack bowls the way it is designed. There is also a problem with the water spray design because many dishes do not come clean even though there is nothing blocking them. More than two thirds need to be rehashed by hand. I am trying to return it but due to restocking fee will likely just sell it and buy something else. Not satisfied with the quality of the cleaning and it doesn't matter how quiet or efficient it is if the dishes are still dirty
