kitchenaid is just that!

Submitted by Ed - 9/3/2015

I am very pleased so far with the purchase of the kitchenaid dishwasher. It is sooo quiet I don't know that it's on. The dishes come out clean and setting the washer to work overnight, the dishes are dry. There is some residual water left in the bottom of the tub but this is negligible.

Good Features

Submitted by DeBro - 8/11/2015

We purchased this model to replace a KitchenAid dishwasher that wore out from years of use. I love the many wash and dry settings and ability to modify how I wash and dry the dishes (top drawer only, sensor wash and dry, etc.) I found that with the 3rd top rack, the space is not as optimal as without the 3rd rack. Even with the top drawer's height being adjustable, you can't wash tall glasses on top and large plates on bottom if you have the 3rd rack installed. You can, however, take it out when needed. I have to say that I am loving the 3rd top rack for knives, plastic lids and other small items. I like the bottle wash option and I enjoy the adjustable section in the bottom drawer for larger dishes and pans. I did not think I would use the divider lid on the silverware tray, but I did try it and now I love it. It groups them nicely so that putting them away goes quickly. The big plus is the fact that it keeps them separated so they all get clean every time. I also like that the plates are washed upright instead of at an angle. Other models we checked out, held the plates at an angle in the bottom drawer and they seemed to fall against each other easily. I like the small removable basked at the back of the top drawer for small items and measuring spoons sets. Overall the one thing I enjoy more than anything is how quiet it is!!. You can't really tell it is running so you have to observe the indicator light to know what it is doing. One last comment, it uses less water which is great for water conservation and the monthly water bill, but the wash cycle is longer to compensate. Not an issue, you just need to plan ahead sometimes if you expect to use it twice a day with a large family or when preparing a large meal for guests or holidays.

Yes extremely quite, but...

Submitted by Mr ML - 8/11/2015

Doesn't clean very well. I'm disappointed with it's cleaning capability. Normal cycle is over 3hrs (and that's a feature) to save pwr & water ... you know, "efficient". I don't save any water since I all but wash the dishes by hand before I load the washer to ensure they come out clean. Otherwise I'm washing a lot of them coming out after the really looooong wash cycle. This replaced a 16 yr old KitchenAid that wasn't cleaning very well any more. Frankly, I should have kept it. I think all the water and pwr saving tech that's been engineered into this appliance keep it from doing what it was intended to do. I'm thinking I could have spent a lot less money and probably ended up with the same results.

No, I do not recommend this product

This dishwasher rocks!

Love it!

Submitted by Old House-New Kitchen - 7/24/2015

I purchased this w/ several other KitchenAid appliances for my complete kitchen expansion/remodel project. The dishwasher is fab - I have not had a dish-washer in the 27 years we have been in our 1928 house. It is ULTRA quiet - you really do have to check the light to see if it is on. It looks nice, and dishes come out sparkling. We did have to have a minor Service Call to tighten up the handle b/c it was not flush & snug against the door. Other than that, no issues.

Skeptical no more

Submitted by Junebug - 7/22/2015

We replaced our old dishwasher with this one. I wanted to spend the extra money for the better features, cleaning abilities, and quietness. My husband was skeptical that it was worth it. That was until we started using this machine. Haven't heard a peep from him or the machine. Loving it.

Submitted by Dianna - 7/17/2015

I like the dishwasher however there are a few things that I am not pleased with. This DW makes noise in my sink drain at various times during the cycle. My previous GE DW did not make this noise. My kitchen is part of a great room and this noise is disturbing. This is not a big issue as I run my dishwasher at night. I special ordered a model that I wanted however Kitchenaid discontinued that model and deliveried an upgraded model instead. This upgraded model has a third drawer in the top that I find is a waste of space and I never use it. I have only had the DW for several weeks so there is a possibility that I may find a use for the drawer later or just remove it if that is possible. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

Yes, I recommend this product

still getting to know it

Submitted by Annie - 7/13/2015

I like the third rack. I like the ease of moving the middle rack up and down. It is very quiet. Some things are not getting clean the first time. I am experimenting with loading them differently. The countdown clock and the lighted message to tell me what cycle . Is working are very nice...except that they are located inside when the door is closed. This makes no sense...

Wonderful dishwasher

Submitted by MG the foodie - 7/6/2015

I bought this dishwasher recently and I love the way it cleans my dishes. It has such a large interior that I am amazed at how much it will hold. I am somewhat disappointed with the way it dries the dishes. I am always having to dry some by hand. There are areas that hold water, such as the folding stemware holder. When in the upright position, water collects and stays. The inability to dry all the dishes is a disappointment. I have called KitchenAid and have not been given an adequate answer. If you want a dishwasher that cleans amazingly well, this is it.

Love this dishwasher!

Submitted by Retired high school teacher - 7/6/2015

We absolutely love this dishwasher! All our dishes come out sparkling clean and you can't even hear the dishwasher running! This is the best dishwasher we have ever owned and we've been married 47 years!!!!!!! Great product and we plan to buy more KitchenAid appliances to match our new Black Stainless Steele - it is a stunning color and just beautiful!

Best dishwasher!

Submitted by KitchenAid Customer - 7/5/2015

This is the BEST dishwasher I have ever used! I researched MANY brands and features before purchasing, and this one had everything that I wanted. I will admit that I didn't love the commercial looking handle in the store, but I absolutely love it in my home. I took a chance, and am so glad that I did! The dishes are spotless and dry (plastics have a few water drips, but not enough to make me upset), and the cycle choices are endless. I do use the recommended rinse aid, and I also use the Cascade Platinum pouches, as they were given to me as a sample when the dishwasher was installed, and worked great. It is so quiet that I'm thrilled there is an indicator light telling me that the dishwasher is on. The dynamic arms have spoiled me, and I will never go back to another dishwasher.

Great Features

Submitted by Jan - 5/30/2015

Purchased one month ago and very happy. What I love about the dishwasher - spring loaded racks so you can fit any size glass. Glasses come out very clean. Bottom rack is wide enough to stack 2 lots of plates side by side. Cutlery caddy is designed so no water spots remain on cutlery. Three spray arms get dishes thoroughly clean. Extremely quiet and efficient.
