I was looking for a dishwasher that was quiet & had a rinse only cycle which I discovered a lot didnt have. This one has a metal wash arm which pretty much sealed the deal as most had plastic. It is pretty quiet however not the quietest I've heard, but is a lot quieter than my previous one. It has your basic controls i.e. heavy wash, normal wash, (which I use 99% of time) and rinse only cycle which makes it very simple to use. I like the look of the controls inside the door but feel it is not as convenient. I tend to hit the buttons easily & the fact you have to hit resume to restart a cycle when you open the door during the rinse/washing rather than just closing the door is a little annoying. But overall I am very happy with this dishwasher to date. I have had it a couple of months now & use it daily. Have not had any problems with it.

We bought this dishwasher to replace an 8-year-old GE Profile model. I am longing for my GE back.

On the plus side, this unit does look nice, it cleans well, and it is very quiet. On the down side, it has these deficiencies:

- Long cycle times. This is influenced by how dirty the dishes are, since this unit senses the water and adjusts the wash and rinse cycles accordingly. It also helps to use less detergent. Carefully follow the instructions on how full to fill the dispenser - more is not better.

- Poor drying performance. Even with "heated dry" dishes are still wet at the end of the cycle. We pop the door ajar at the end of the drying cycle to let the dishes continue air drying before unloading the dishwasher.

- Awkward racks. The spacing of the top rack tines does not work with most of our glassware and mugs. Both the top and bottom racks tend to jam when sliding in/out - especially if they are loaded unevenly to the front or back.

All in all, I give this dishwasher an "OK" rating. It does what it is supposed to do, but it does not perform exceptionally.

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Classic Series II Undercounter Dishwasher In White:

My home was severely damaged after Hurricane Sandy. I purchased my new KitchenAide dishwasher and I have been very happy with this product.

I have always had a KitchenAid washer and I am pleased to say that it is a fine machine.

Thank you!

Best dishwasher ever!

By 

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Classic Series II Undercounter Dishwasher In White:

I have used this machine for 5-1/2 years. It has been very dependable, always cleans the toughest dishes. This machine is so quiet people who don't know will interrupt the cycle to place another dish inside. It is very easy to resume the clean cycle after interruptions.

Best dishwasher I have had

By 

from Vancouver BC

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Classic Series II Undercounter Dishwasher In White:

Actually this dishwasher came with my new apartment and it is the quietest dishwasher I have ever had. The inside is stainless steel and the racks hold a lot more dishes than my old one. Washing is excellent.
Highly recommended.

Nice Dishwasher

By 

from Daytona Beach Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Classic Series II Undercounter Dishwasher In White:

I replaced a 15 Year Old GE Dishwasher. At first I was not impressed with the performance. However now that I have retrained myself on how to load the dishwasher I am Very Impressed with its performance. Bowls are the problem, all the loading racks "fingers" are straight, you need to pay close attention for correct spacing.

Easy to Use

By

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Classic Series II Undercounter Dishwasher In White:

This dishwasher came with the house I ought. It functions well but the internal set up is awkward to use. The dishes come out clean but it is hard to get them to fit in the washer easily.

Best Dishwasher you will find.

By 

from Oklahoma, United States

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Classic Series II Undercounter Dishwasher In White:

My last dishwasher left a whole lot to be desire. I bought this KA, and am very impressed. It is so quiet that I actually had to put my ear next to the door panel, to make sure it was on. I love the stainless interior, and also the quality of the dish racks. It does a superb job of cleaning also. We love the KA brand, and bought a complete kitchen page of them, in stainless.
