I use my new dishwasher almost everyday. I love how big the inside is and how I can move my upper and lower racks around to accommodate large pans. The silverware basket is great. The basket has removable tops to keep small items contained during the wash cycle. I love how quiet it is in my small kitchen. I read my manual and follow directions. The control panel is so sensitive, I barely have to touch it. I'm thrilled to own this machine. I forgot to order a control panel with a rinse and hold cycle, but I just use a quick short wash, and press cancel drain. I'm so happy to have this machine.

Do not Buy the KUDS30IX

I had an old top of the line KitchenAid dishwasher that was 18 years old. It worked great execept the top dish rack rusted out and I could not find the part to replace it. My old KitchenAid was made in the good old USA and when I called KitchenAid to find the replacement part they told me 1) the part is no longer being manufactured and 2) hold on to this unit as long as I could because I will not be able to find the build quality like my old unit. So I held on for another 2 years till the rack fell apart.When the rack finally gave way - I had to replace my old KitchenAid. After weeks of research I decided to purchase the KitchenAid KUDS30ix based on my fist KitchenAid experience on build quality. I was sold on the KUDS30ix front panel display, the fact it had a food disposal, and a number of other features like my old KitchenAid. Since I upgraded my old oven and went stainless steel - I also went for that option as well- stainless steel. Out of the box the unit looked very nice, however I could tell by the weight and components of my new KitchenAid it was not built as well as my old unit. After installation and the first run of the unit the water would not drain - the only way to get the dishwasher to drain was to hit cancel/drain. That did the trick for a week and now the unit will not even drain. Also, 2 blue lights are stuck on - "Hi-Temp Scrub" and "3-Ho ur Delay". When the unit did clean my dishes it did not clean well. It left a white residue from the dish-washing liquid. I used a top name dish-washing detergent brand/pre-rinse and rinse-aid as suggested. This was the same dishwashing detergent I have been using for years in my old KitchenAid and I never had a problem.. So the white residue I feel is not due to hard-water or dish washing products. [...] I have already purchased another dishwasher a Maytag - MDB8959AWS. It has all the features of the KitchenAid and has been very highly rated by most people who have purchased the unit. The motor is also to be stronger then the KitchenAid's which I now know is a very important feature manufactures don't tell you about. Try and find on product literature - you cannot find and compare dishwashers.I was warned by a friend who purchased a similar KitchenAid unit and was very unhappy with the performance of her KitchenAid. I wish I had listened to her..... This brand has gone way downhill since manufacturing in China. The same may hold true for Maytag - at least the motor is stronger however.

Comments about KitchenAid Superba Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
Broke down 4 times in 4yrs. I give up on all Whirlpool products (Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Jenn-air & Amana). Company does not stand behind their products, customer service is awful. We also had issues with our Microwave-Oven Combo. I've spent $981 in repairs in just 4yrs after spending over $6K on KitchenAid products when re-doing the kitchen.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not good service, poor quality on upper rack
I just purchased a home with this unit and having an issue with the top rack. I look at the reviews which clearly state there is an issue, and that some individuals received help with the top rack. Now I try the live chat, and is told they not seen an issue with the top rack. Shocking
KitchenAid® 24-Inch 4-Cycle/6-Option Dishwasher, Pocket Hand
from Westerville, OH
We bought this a couple weeks ago and have been very happy so far. It is very quiet which is quite nice since our old dishwasher was very loud! We also like how you can easily adjust the top rack up or down.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cleans Well, Reasonably Quiet

About Me Avid Cook
For the cons, I selected "Doesn't Dry Well" - that's not entirely true. It dries well enough, but just beware that if you have glasses or mugs with deep dimples or extended edges on the bottom that trap water, all of the water may not be completely dried up even when using sani-rinse and heated dry. Another con: If the ambient light in your kitchen is fairly dim, the LED's will blind you when squatting down to check what buttons you pressed. You'll need good light to see what settings you're selecting.(You can practically navigate a dark kitchen by the light of these super bright LED's - so maybe that's a pro?) Okay, leaving on a positive note: It's a quality product overall which inspires confidence regarding its reliability/durability, and it's easier to load and unload than several other brands we've used. Hey, it's a KitchenAid.
Dishes sparkle, very roomy, easy to use

This unit replaced our prior KitchenAid Superba dishwasher, also purchased from Abt, which lasted more than 10 years. Abt's super delivery/installation team did a careful and conscientious job. Abt delivers and installs with its own fleet of trucks and its own trained employees--not a-paid-per-unit independent contractor. They know they are ambassadors for the store, and that makes a difference.

Just cannot believe how quiet this unit is. What a boon after our last machine. Our dishes are cleaner than ever before.
Quality you can count on.
from Oak Park, IL
After having two previous European dishwashers, it was nice to get back to an American product. The dishwasher is quiet, dependable and does a great job on all types of dishes and pans.
