We have had this dishwasher installed for about 2 weeks now. There is a little light in the upper right hand corner, and that is the only way to tell if the dishwasher is running. It is extremely quite! It does a fantastic job at cleaning and has a very large capacity. The cycle takes a little longer than our prior 7 year old dishwasher, but it is likely because it uses a lot less water and energy.

Our ownership of this product has been mixed. It generally cleans very well. It generally is quiet. However, it's incredibly quirky.Our old dishwasher failed a few months before we began a general kitchen renovation. We bought this unit intending to purchase new Kitchenaid appliances for the remodel. We'd use this dishwasher until we did the remodel and re-install it again later with the new kitchen.Overall, the dishwasher cleans pretty well. It does leave some spotting on glassware, but everything does come out clean with minimal pre-rinsing. It is generally very quiet. However, when it is draining the tub, it frequently has a loud rumble that's very disconcerting. Sometimes it's also impossible to select a cycle. The keypad on the door does not respond to touches and the LEDs do not light. Cycling the circuit breaker seems to resolve this problem. Some of the LEDs also don't light when a cycle is selected. For example, yesterday when I tried to select "Pro dry" the LED only lit dimly. I didn't want to go out to the garage to cycle the circuit breaker and ran it like that.The worst problem is that at the end of a cycle the bottom of the tub is full of water. Quite often the water is fairly dirty. I check the drain and it's clear. Since I can't be sure that the cycle ran correctly and that the dishes are really clean, we re-run it. It will usually work correctly the next time, especially if we choose a different cycle. However sometimes it will fail to drain the tub three or four consecutive washes. Usually in these cases, cycling the circuit breaker seems to "fix" the problem until it occurs again a few days later.We are very happy with the results of the kitchen remodeling, especially with the other appliances, which are Wolf and Subzero. We changed our minds about the appliances when we were in the design phase. But since Subzero doesn't make dishwashers and since this is a fairly expensive dishwasher, we reinstalled it.According to the Kitchenaid parts website, the electronics parts are about $400 plus another one or two hundred for a service call comes awfully close the the point where it might just make more sense to buy something more reliable than a dishwasher that fails after only two years of light usage.

Comments about KitchenAid Superba Series EQ Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
A dishwasher, in theory, should just quietly and completely wash the dishes! What a concept. This time it worked. Got me thru Thanksgiving dinner with no effort. Thank you. This dishwasher I heartily recommend.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Sad Mama
from OC California
We purchased a new home and wanted to purchase Kitchenaid products because we wanted to buy American. We replaced the dishwasher, fridge and oven to make. The dishwasher unit is 2 1/2 years old and it has been nothing but problems. We had to replace the motor and pump assembly within the first year which resulted in our wood floor ripped up, kitchenaid was kind to assist in the cost. Now the drain pump needs to be replaced for $350. Sad to have to replace after 2 1/2 years! Makes us want to look at a Bosch.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Piece of Junk!!!
from Doylestown, PA, United States
Bought this diswasher in 2011, and was the biggest mistake. Since then, we've two problems with the control panels; one problem with the bottom rack, one problem with motor, and now one problem with the top rack failing. I'm very disappointed. The prior two Kitchenaid dishwashers I've owned were 5 and 7 years old, both without any problems. This one has had 5 major problems in 3 years. Never again will I buy a Kitchenaid dishwasher.

from Grand Ledge, MI
This dishwasher is so quiet. We love that it cleans and shines the dishes and does not make any noise.
This product is much better than viking.
from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, USA
I had kept Viking dishwasher for five years, since I had paid top dollar at that time. However, it has been so many problems: noise, clean factor and some other mechanical problems.Ever since I have replaced it to Kitchen Aid, all these problems disappeared. I enjoy this dishwasher very much. Also, appearance of this product is great.
Love this dishwasher!
from Central WI
It's quiet, efficient, and well made. I am very happy with my purchase, and would absolutely recommend it.
I am very pleased with this product.
This product was purchased not only for it being rated highly by Consumer Reports, but because it is extremely quiet, which was a very important factor. My previous two dishwashers in thirty six years were not very quiet and this one makes me forget that it is even running, which is fantastic!!!
