The control panel is a flat, touch screen type system rather than a "push button" system. The "buttons" are outlined on the panel so you know where to touch it to activate the cycle you want, but they're not actually buttons. It's a flat control panel and it is ultra sensitive. It takes no pressure whatsoever to activate it. If anyone gets near it and inadvertently brushes up against it, one of the "buttons" gets activated. In the middle of a cycle, the "cancel/drain" designated area of the control panel accidentally got touched by someone at the sink beside it and the machine did exactly that. It canceled the current cycle and drained the water and shut off. I had to start it all over, which wasted time, water and energy. It's also super easy to touch the control panel without meaning to if you don't keep your thumb out of the way when you open the door. I've only had it for 4 days and I can't even count how many times the machine has reacted to a part of the panel being accidentally touched. The slightest touch will activate it. I don't even have any small children in the house. If you have curious little hands which like to touch everything they pass, the machine will be activating 100 times a day. As for cleaning, it does clean exceptionally well, but doesn't dry near as thoroughly as ANY previous dishwasher I've ever owned. When it's done, the entire interior of the machine is still wet (the dishes are 90% dry, but not the walls of the machine itself). I've had to leave the door open to air dry it out for fear of it beginning to rust inside. Maybe that's just the way of the new energy saving models and maybe they all dry less these days. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't choose this model again.
