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.

Looks great.

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White 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 Carolanne

from Maryland, United States

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White 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.)

This dishwasher does not get dishes clean

By LMcB

from Redwood City, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White Undercounter Dishwasher:

The control panel went out after a couple of months. The salesperson at Sears said the dishes did not need to be rinsed before putting them in the dishwasher. Totally UNTRUE. In fact the repairman said they must be fully free of food or it clogs the motor. The utensil holder has poorly designed lids that broke off. There is a hole in one of the sections. A part that holds the top side section up broke off. The glasses still have lip gloss on them. Even rinsed dishes still are dirty. There's white spots on plastic even though we use a rinse agent. Plus, most plastic take out containers melt in it. It takes forever to complete a load. My friend got a Bosch and I should have done the same. Every time the repairman comes out, he says there is nothing wrong with it.

        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.

        Best Uses

          Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White 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.

          Longtime Kitchenaid fans!

          By JFAF

          Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White Undercounter Dishwasher:

          Love the new version of an old favorite! Started out in the late 70s with your Superba in a convertible. Was built in during a remodel in 1982. In 90's (?)replaced with another same. At 9 & some years replaced by you due to small puncture in tub while still under warranty! That replacement is still running & was given to a friend as we chose a new color for a current kitchen remodel. Never considered any other brand! Always got all contents super clean, & new one is extremely quiet.

              I used the same dishwasher for 17 years and just recently upgraded to this Kitchenaid. WOW! Unbelievably quiet and cleans like crazy! I used my previous machine to lull me to sleep at night. I know, I know...most people use their TV's to do that. Yes, it was loud. LOL! I'll be shopping for a new refrigerator soon. Kitchenaid will definitely be on the top of my research list when I begin my quest.
