In 2010 I got a Sears Kenmore Elite machine. It is superb, best dishwasher I've ever owned. Nearly silent, good looking, reliable, and by god it gets the dishes clean. I'm able to clean one of the filters myself--I like that. It's easy to do and helps to keep the repairman away. Doesn't need to be done often either. I got one for my mother and she's happy happy too. I never make a purchase like this without consulting Consumer Reports, btw.
