This is our second try at a dishwasher; we previosuly had a Bosch that was not good to the point that we thought there must be something wrong with it. This is the polar opposite - it's reliable, it cleans all the way, and it dries all the way. The only two things I would change are (1) the loading tongs are strangely configured and make it a bit tricky to maximize space; and (2) the control lights are an annoying blue color, and the control panel looks a bit cheap.

But do not let those 2 deter you from this machine; it is a great dishwasher thus far.

This dishwasher is a little louder than we had hoped and a little louder than the 10-year old comparable model it replaced. Also, the loading of larger items (bowls, etc.) is a bit awkward. I had been aware of both of these things through the reviews; was just hoping for a little more because of the high ratings.

Now the final review...

By 

from Baton Rouge, LA

Comments about KitchenAid KUDS30IVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

Because now he stands curbside.
Bought it 07/23/2010.
After 2 years the nice blue lights of the electronic started blinking, than they started failing, than the whole electronic failed. It was extremely difficult to start, after month of ongoing repair and a lot of ducktape under careful usage we could wash our dishes.
The stubborn messes as advertised never gone away, useless at all the extra spray jets.
Than after 3 Years the silverware baskets braking apart on the bottom, one after another had big holes. Two month ago the dishes came dirtier out as going in. Upper spray arm not working anymore. Removing and cleaning doesn't help, a new washer ring doesn't work, so we have to wash only on the bottom rack.
The energy usage was high all the time, the water usage also, nothing with energy and water saving, against my old model from whirlpool what stand up from 1996 to 2010 no difference, the only thing I didn't have to use him every day because he was roomier inside as the old one. But he needed double the time to get the work done.
THE ONLY GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS SHADDY PIECE OF WORKMANSHIP IS, HE WAS QUIET.
Never again Kitchenaid, prices are high, spare part prices exorbitant high, the whole thing is a nuisance, be warned.

Low Quality Parts

By 

from Parker, CO

Comments about KitchenAid KUDS30IVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

We bought our KitchenAid Superba dishwasher in January. In October as I was preparing a wedding cake for our niece the top rack cheap plastic parts that hold the rollers in place broke and pieces fell into the motor. Back and forth with the sales company and the warranty group . . . we ended up having to pay for the whole thing ourselves just to get the wedding cake dishes cleaned up! Don't recommend KitchenAid.

Comments about KitchenAid KUDS30IVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

Just realized today we have had this dishwasher for five years. I discovered the amount of time because I realized I had not cleaned a filter in all that time - it handles it! Quiet, efficient. Excellent.

Not a good product

By 

from Napa, CA, United States

Comments about KitchenAid KUDS30IVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

This dishwasher is a joke. Does not wash dishes at all you have to rinse everything spotless to only find 2 hours later after waiting for load to complete that the load is spotty and not clean but with h20 spots. Cleaned it with a toothbrush to find nothing clogging the motor or where the h20 comes out. Coffee mugs have coffee spots and leaving a minuscule amount of food will make the whole load dirty. The on button popped off and you have to push the buttons really hard to get it to start. Service man told me nothing was wrong with it.

Looks great.

By 

from pompano beach, fl

Comments about KitchenAid KUDS30IVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

I bought a couple of months ago. washes the dishes really well, even cleans stuck on food. Extremely quiet. Use the control lock, otherwise brushing past it, reaching to cupboards and hitting the control buttons, can turn it on. Runs alot longer in cycles than I was used to. Start in evening and put dishes away next day. Only way to tolerate the long cycles.

Buttons not easy to work, and doesn't dry super well

By 

from Maryland, United States

Comments about KitchenAid KUDS30IVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

I find often find myself starting and/ or stopping a cycle inadvertently when I am working at the counter above my dishwasher, or reaching in the cabinet above to get something. I therefore keep the unit just a little ajar all the time when it's off, and staying away from the unit when it's on (the cycles are very long). In a cruel twist of irony, the buttons don't seem sensitive enough when I actually try to press them with my finger!! In addition, I'm trying to get used to the new "high energy efficiency", which translates into less drying power. My 30-yr old Kitchen Aid dishwasher dried dishes better than this unit. I suspect, however, that this may be the case with all new dishwashers in the US, thanks to the new efficiency standards.(Hint: first prime the hot water at the sink before turning the dishwasher on.)

        Really happy with my choice of a Kitchen Aid, debated between this and a European model but likes the extra room in the Kitchen Aid. Cleans great and so quiet in our open space. Can't even tell it is running!
        Only complaint, I love the silverware holders but they don't stay inn place.

        • only 1 delay option of 4 hour delay

        Best Uses

          Comments about KitchenAid KUDS30IVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

          Our 17 year old dishwasher finally quit. My wife and I had to re-educated ourselves as we started our search for a new dishwasher. The things that were most important to us were;
          1) It must get the dishes clean and not require we rinse them prior to putting into the dishwasher.
          2) No cleaning (must have a food chopper - no screen)
          3) Quiet operation
          3) Cycle delay option

          We love our new dishwasher - It does a great job cleaning the dishes, it chops food particles and rinses them out through the drain. The machine is very quite and caused us to stand by and listen to ensure it was actually cycling.

          The only thing we aren't real crazy about it the delay option. The machine has one delay option which is a 4 hour delay. We would like a 1 hour delay option or better yet, an option to set the delay time. The reality is, the machine is so quiet we have just started to run it whenever it is needed.

          We are very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend this product.
