This replaces a Frigidaire that kept leaking from front. It is much quieter than old one. Have no idea about things not drying. Most of the time, I just open the door a bit and let things air dry. I love the filter aspect. My dishes are sparkling. Did not want one with too many cycles. Great deal for the money. Will see if any issues arise later on.

Doesn't dry at all

I've had this for about a week, replacing a GE that I had had for 14 years. The GE was a work horse compared to this dishwasher. The only reason I replaced it was because the racks were rusting. I wish I had just replaced the racks, now. This dishwasher cleans just ok. I still have food residue on multiple items. But the biggest issue I have is that it doesn't dry AT ALL. I use the heated dry cycle, of course, but it makes no difference. I expect a little water left on plastic, but everything is dripping wet when it is finished. It's very tedious to have to hand dry each piece of flatware. The only good thing I can say about this product is that it is quiet.

Great features easy to install

Only thing bad with the 1 hour wash is, things don't dry because the heat cycles won't work on that cycle

Great dishwasher with a good price tag!

I bought this when I bought my new home. It washes dishes great and it is so quiet you can't hear it running.
