I hesitated between giving this product an "excellent" or "good" overall rating. It seems that the guts of this dishwasher are indeed excellent but with insufficient engineering devoted to two of the features: the culinary rack and the utensil basket. First the good: It's whisper quiet. A whisper is in fact loud in comparison. You barely hear it when it's running. It normally does an excellent job of cleaning although once I had left a few glasses in the sink and washed my hands over the glasses before, later on, loading them into the dishwasher. [I know, I know.] The soap film, from washing my hands, had dried onto the glasses. Because of that, the glasses going into the dishwasher had dried soap film which two runs through the dishwasher failed to completely remove. I eventually washed the glasses by hand and them put them through the dishwasher and no more soap film. Sort of defeats the purpose though. On the other hand, the dishwasher leaves the dishes, including glassware and stainless clean and spotless from food. I typically use the "normal" cycle and shut off the heated drying and everything still comes out clean and spot free. I definately recommend using a rinse aid. Also, "less is more" when using soap. The dishwasher needs very little soap. I only fill the soap dispenser about 1/2 way and that works fine. I also like the way the dishwasher looks and that the controls are hidden from view when the door is closed. Did I mention it's very quiet? Now the bad #not really bad but not as good#: This would be an "excellent" dishwasher except for the "culinary tool rack" and the "utensil basket". I am still trying to get used to the culinary tool rack, which is the top sliding drawer. For many "culinary tools" the inside height of the rack is not tall enough so I usually only put the eating and some serving utensils in the culinary rack. Large serving spoons and spatulas need to go elsewhere. Also, if the tongs in the culinary rack were a bit taller they'd hold the eating utensils better. Finally, the culinary tool rack robs space from the rack where you put glassware. My least favorite thing about the dishwasher is the utensil basket which occupies an entire side of the main drawer #where you put the dishes#. It's too big taking up too much valuable space. If it were 1/3 the size or even 1/4 the size, it would be just fine. Also, there are small door closures on the top of the utensil basket which seem a bit cheap on an expensive dishwasher. The doors on the utensil basket routinely come off their little tracks which is an annoyance. In my opinion additional engineering is called for in both the culinary rack and the utensil basket. In sum, this is a really good dishwasher. I would indeed buy the same one again although I'd like to see a bit more engineering devoted to both the culinary tool rack and the utensil basket. +

I have always had KitchenAid dishwashers and found them to be unsurpassed. I entertain a lot, and in my last house, I had 3 of them (2 in kitchen and one in the bar). This is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. First, the one hour wash does nothing but santize. To really wash, you have to go with the power wash, which takes hours. It is so slow and still doesn't do the job that earlier models did. Plus, it is so cheaply made. I have had it less than a year and the rollers are already broken. I will never buy another KitchenAid dishwasher. This one has caused me to lose all faith in KitchenAid, if it was willing to put its name on an appliance this bad, especially at this price.

Comments about KitchenAid Superba Series KUDE60FVBL Black Undercounter Dishwasher:
This dishwasher cleans well, is VERY quiet, but the controls are very sensitive. When just standing near it, the controls are very easily (unintentionally) activated---it may have been better to get the top control rather than front. I am very happy with it's performance.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

HAVING NOT PURHASED A DISHWASHER IN QUITE SOME TIME,I AM TRUELY AMAZED AT HOW QUIET AND VERSATILE THIS ONE IS--PUNCH A FEW BUTTONS AND SHE IS OFF AND RUNNING AND THE DISHWARE JUST SHINES WHEN FINISHED. WE ARE ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED WITH THIS PURCHASE
Really clean the dishes and does it quietly!

When a product works well there is not much to say about it... it is quite. It is convenient. It has the ability to clean many dishes at once. It is quite. It is a nice looking appliance to put in the kitchen. All good so. Very happy about it.

I bought this in Sept of 2014 and I love it, it is so quite I can run it anytime of the day and it's not disturbing. My dishwasher also cleans my dishes, and other item's clean as a whistle.

From the moment that we purchased this dishwasher we have been very pleased. The design/appearance and performance has been great. This dishwasher is so quiet that we often have wondered if it was running!

Quiet cleans well

I bought one month ago. Washer cleans well and is very quiet.
Finally a dishwasher that cleans the dishes
from Greenbush, MN, United States
We have been using our Architect Series II for two months now and find it is an exceptional dishwasher. I had to convince my wife to leave the dishes dirty with dried on food to really test the performance. It washed extremely clean even with the toughest dried on food. My wife was used to having to clean the dishes before putting them in our previous dishwashers because they worked so poorly. I thought this Kitchenaid was a bit pricey but when we see the great job it does it is very well worth the investment. Quiet, cleans well, dishes fit well. I would recommend this to everyone. You will not be disappointed!
