My old dishwasher was the one that the builder chose for our development and I hated it from the time we moved in. Thankfully, it finally broke and I went on a search to find a good dishwasher for a fairly reasonable price. We finally decided on a whirlpool gold and I absolutely love it. It has just enough features without going overboard. It cleans great and for the first time I don't have to prewash my dishes before loading them into the dishwasher. It holds up to fourteen place settings plus the silverware basket is located on the door so it keeps the silverware out of the way leaving lots of room for other things. I even find myself putting pots, pans, and large bowls in the dishwasher since it has so much room. The top rack is also adjustable so if you have something tall that needs to go on the top rack, you can lower the rack to make room. This model also has a sani-rinse cycle which heats up to a higher temperature to kill more germs. It is also much quieter than my old dishwasher.
