In truth, when it was working, did a pretty good job of cleaning the dishes, and was exceedingly quiet. But we did not even have the unit for two years when it broke down, and a new computer board was required, costing me about 25% of the entire purchase. It is a sad, sad state of affairs when a major department store such as Sears cannot stand behind a major appliance with their own name on the front. Unbelievable, it did not even last 2 years. Bottom line, based upon my experiences, stay away from Sears, stay away from their brand products, especially, if it has the word "Elite".
