I installed this dishwasher by myself under a 21 5/8" deep counter. We specifically bought it for its size and it exceeded our expectations in every way. Compared to our old Whirlpool: it uses less soap, gets things cleaner, and has more functional space. Very quiet, just a gentle water sloshing sound when it's running. I wish it dried better... we end up drying most things by hand but given that it actually fits in our 1950's kitchen, I still love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
