I am not super happy with my diamond plates. I have a DMT coarse, and fine. I did not have the same issues you are having, but after restoring a few plane blades the coarse is almost worn out. It feels very smooth now and cuts slower than it did when I got it. I tried cleaning it etc but no help. I probably should have used sandpaper for those tasks in hindsight, but still I feel it should last longer. The fine stone is still good. No real issues with it I guess, other than it is probably a little more coarse than you really need for a first Sharpening step.

I will probably go to splash and go water stones at some point.
