Needing new dishwasher

Needing new dishwasher

This isn't exactly "cookware" but certainly an important part of the kitchen so I thought I'd post my query here. We are in the market for a new dishwasher. We've had a Maytag and it is 9 years old and quite worn out (the plastic coating on the racks has come off in spots and it is rusted--this stains our white dishware--it is also getting really, really loud, which makes me think the motor is waning). We want a stainless exterior and interior, racks included, we'd like it to be relatively quiet, and we don't need fancy options--in fact, the fewer, the better. The one feature that I think is probably pretty standard in all at this point is the delayed start, which we would definitely want. We don't care about hidden controls. I'd also like a quick wash option--our dishwasher takes about 1-1/2 hours to get through cycle completely and sometimes I want it to move a little faster. Also, while we are willing to pay for a decent machine, we don't want to pay a fortune (mid-high hundreds would be ok--over $1000 not). Any suggestions would be appreciated!
