    Dishwasher met all our needs. We were surprised that the status lights aren't visible when the door is closed and turn off when you open the door.

    Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Stainless Steel Undercounter Dishwasher:

    We bought this dishwasher to replace a similar model that died after about 7 yrs of use. This model matches other KitchenAid appliances in our kitchen. Overall it is easy to use, and with the Electrasol powerball tablets that came with our in the starter pack it cleans really well. After using this model, I probably would have choosen a less expensive version that doesn't have the utensil tray at the very top. The feature is the main difference I could find in this model from the next less expensive one. We do use the tray for kids utensils, but our daily use spoons don't fit in it and the regular utensil spot on the bottom is plenty big. In addition the tray takes up space that makes tall glasses harder to load. You can shift the upper rack down, but then full sized dishes don't fit. This model is a 50FV, the one with out the tray is a 40FV. Also I might consider the one with controls on the front. One advantage of top mounted controls on this model is that kids are less likely to press them. The disadvantage is that you can't see what stage the dishwasher is on because the indicator lights are covered by the counter. The model with front view controls is a 40CV and is even less expensive than this one. Lastly one feature shown in the manual and not included is the delicate items pouch. We would have used this for sippy cup straws, etc. but it wasn't included with the model we received.

        Comments about KitchenAid KUDS50FVBL Architect Series II Black Undercounter Dishwasher:

        We especially love the extra silverware rack, the special knife rack in the bottom and the little clips for holding plastic items.

        While there are some models which cannot be heard at all, this one is much quieter than any I've had in the past. Family is amazed at how quiet it is.

        I chose this dishwasher and brand, after using a friend's Bosch which did not hold much at all in comparison, left things wet and loading was very difficult.
