Purchased this stainless steel dishwasher in June 2012. Has never totally cleaned the dishes, silverware, etc.
I use the Cascade extra action packet, Cascade gel detergent soap, and a rinse. I turned up my water heater, which is hotter than recommended but still have dirty dishes. An example would be a bowl with some whipped cream that wasn't clean and a knife with banana residue that didn't come clean. I never do a short load...always use the full cycle and I rinse the dishes before putting in the dishwasher.
I'm very disappointed and wish I'd never have purchased the dishwasher.
