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.

Quiet dishwasher which is a plus
from Tucson, AZ, United States
Comments about KitchenAid Superba Series KUDE60FVBL Black Undercounter Dishwasher:
You need to improve on the settings in front of the dishwasher. It is extremely hard to read. Otherwise it is a good dishwasher.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We've had this dishwasher for about 6 months now. It replaced an old GE that was top of the line when bought but about 17 years old. The dishes, glasses and silverware come out sparkling clean and its VERY quite. We're very pleased with this product.

Its so quiet you don't know if it's working! It takes FOREVER to do a load of dishes, unless you express, then its 1+ hours. It does appear to clean well!
Quiet & gets dishes very clean with Pro Wash option
By Susan M
Quiet Good controls display & easy to set options excellent cleaning-I like Pro Wash option Top rack set up & untensil basket very good setup Negative is dry cycle leaves some moisture on silverware basket & on inside of door. Also bottom rack setup for plates & serving bowls not ample enough. This is OK for a small household, but not good for a large meal for several people.
Very Quiet and Efficient!!
from Evansville, IN, United States
This is a great dishwasher. It is very quiet and makes the dishes very shiny. The only downgrade to it is that it takes almost two hours or a full cycle which is fairly long. Besides that, I would highly recommend this dishwasher for anyone.
from Boca Raton, Fl
I bought this dishwasher a few weeks ago. The one I had was the same but a 2004. The whole motor assembly went and being so expensive to repair got another. I like the fact that it is quiet and does a great job. I don't like the lock feature on it. It is easy to turn it on and then cannot start so easy! The silverware rack doesn't hold the smaller utensils without falling through. Other than that so far so good!!

Bought this to replace an older dishwasher and love how quite this one is.
quiet and efficient
from Humble, TX, United States
This dishwasher is super quiet with lots of features to clean all of my tough messes. The stainless steel looks great and its hidden control prevents my daughter from messing around.
from Phoenix, AZ, United States
Quiet, powerful cleaning with easy to load racks that hold a lot more than our old dishwasher. Love the smooth front design.

Purchased dishwasher about 3 months ago and love it. My dishes sparkle & you don't realize it is on because it's so quiet. Very satisfied & happy I selected this brand & model.
