This appliance was bought as part of a full purchase of appliances for our new build home. At the time of selecting we were bamboozled by the range of dish washers available. We viewed a vast range in an electrical show room and were swayed to buy this model due to promises of low noise volume and the capacity. I have never had a problem with the capacity as I run this every other day and have two children and a husband generating A LOT of dishes. Also can usually fit in extra by squeezing them in. However, it is placed in an open plan kitchen/living room area and most definitely the noise disrupts TV viewing. Not just a background noise but a very apparent (very annoying noise). Therefore I have resorted to only using this as night time whilst in bed. Have never had problems cleaning and the filters easy to remove and clean and install back again. Takes a LONG time to cool dishes down.
