Comments about KitchenAid KUDS40FVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:
We have had this dishwasher for ~5.5 years now and have been very happy. It's quieter than most models and does a good job of cleaning. Although just recently, the glasses on the top rack are coming out dirty, spotted. In looking at the manual, there isn't any maintenance requirements and we read most of the online suggestions. Nothing appears to be related. It was really great up until now.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Montreal, Canada
After few years having this dishwasher we are not happy. We had to change the basket because the plastic broke and let the appliance to pass through.But the main problem, the glasses and little bowls in the upper rack began dirtier and dirtier as we use it ( even if the spray arm is spinning properly. Cheaper than our old plastic dishwasher at 350$.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have had this model for years and it has performed amazingly well. Have friends who have presumably higher-end brands and have been dissatisfied with their models; some have even switched out to Kitchen Aid.

Have not been happy
from Sublimity, OR, United States
Although this dishwasher has a nice look, after owning one for the past 4 years we have not been happy. Service problems, it is much nosier than expected, our utensil basket has several areas on the bottom of it that are broken out which allows our utensils fall out the bottom and a couple of the adjustable racks we have just thrown away because they don't work.

About Me Casual Cook
This is the third KitchenAid I've owned. The last one did not last very long -- disappointing. But the KUDS40FVSS cleans very well, is quiet and more energy efficient, and has additional water jets in the back wall. I'm staying with KitchenAid!

About Me Avid Cook
As a response to the already posted review. The unit is to be flush mounted. The controls are supposed to be out of sight(there is a model just like this with visable controls for people who prefer this)The contols are to be set while the dishwasher is open, then press start and close it...it then starts. Sorry to prevoius responder that you have installed it all wrong

Product is designed for under counter mount. Unless I am wrong, the door can not be flush with the counter as you would not be able to access controls on top of door. We mounted with door sticking out so controls are accessible
