Not good at all. Fisher and Paykel product quality decreasing!
Had a F&P dishwasher so thought it would be best to replace with another, but we are very disappointed. You cannot put glasses in the top rack as the cutlery draw hits them and cannot open. If you lower the tray then it's too low, for the bottom shelf and the wand hits the plates. Another problem is the tablets not dispensing. You cannot put dinner plates at the back as they don't fit properly against the back railing, but when put closer the door the tablet dispenser doesn't open so the tablet doesn't dissolve. Clearly this dishwasher wasn't t...ested by families. When I rang F&P about the dispenser they are aware of the issue, but looks like they are not making any attempt to ensure their customers are happy as there is no resolution. This is the second product from F&P that we've purchased in the last 12 months and they have both been terrible. Our brand new washing machine was so badly made they collected it and gave us our money back!

Washes well, but plates can easily block the dispenser
Washes well when you're not blocking the dispenser with plates. However, the manual gives no warning I could see that putting even mid-size plates on the left side at the front can completely block the powder dispenser from opening. Since plates can't go there, things take a bit more arranging than one might hope.
I've posted a video demonstrating the issue here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcbW0fRlvvA
Plates block powder
The plates block the powder/tablet from being dispensed. At the back of the dishwasher is extra space for wine glasses that means you can't fit plates in the back right either. Although the dishwasher still fits a reasonable number of plates (front right), it makes it frustrating and took us a number of washes to work out why we were getting powder working sometimes and not others. There's nothing in the instructions about not putting plates by the dispenser/in the trouble shooting guide. Otherwise when the powder works it works well.
Easy to use, good selection of functions. The quick 30 minute wash seems to do a good enough job unless there are really dirty things in, which is handy. Still getting used to the cutlery tray as our old dishwasher had the basket but it does give more space in the main compartment.
After swapping my purchase of the dreadful Delongi dishwasher, I'm happy to say I am thrilled with this machine, does everything it is meant to do, nice and quiet, good washing time. Because of the top cutlery tray you would struggle if you have very large dinner plates because lifting the top tray does make that tray nearly unusable
Would highly recommend

I have just purchased a Fisher & Paykel DW60FC6X1 and would like to know if I can use Finish all in 1 max fast dissolving gel (instead of the tablets)? thank you
