We are extremely happy. Never had a dishwasher clean as well and be as quiet as it is. Can't even tell its running unless I look at the lights on the panel. The only problem we had is that about 2 weeks after we installed it, I opened it and there was a terrible odor coming from it. Here a plastic spatula worked it's way loose and fell right onto the heating element. We've been trying for weeks to get rid of the smell. Have tried everything we can think of. I'm afraid if I scrape the heating element it will get damaged. Might just have to replace the element, sigh. However, this is not a fault of the product, just a freak incident. Any advice would be appreciated.

I had to have a new control panel after about weeks. There were no problems with service. They came promptly and ordered the part and replaced it. I wanted the controls to be visible but these are extremely sensitive. I was aware of that from other reviews.It is very quiet especially since I have an open floor plan.This is my third KitchenAid dishwasher and it's cleaning power is awesome.

Comments about KitchenAid Classic Series Black Undercounter Dishwasher:
We've had this dishwasher for about four years. It cleans good but is a nightmare to use. The lights flash and can't be cleared. The silverware cage is mounted on the side instead of the front and has to be pulled out to use the full size of the cage. The layout of the drawers is awful and doesn't make the best use of the space. I will never buy another Kitchenaid again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Maybe It's a Lemon
We bought this modle about 4 years ago. Thankfully we bought the extended warrenty, because we have had to have it repaired 4 times and it's acting up again. The store we bought it from says it's not a lemon and they just keep reapiring it. It's always something with the control panel. It's frustrating and inconvienient. I haven't found a good brand for a dishwasher. This is our 3rd dishwasher in this house.

Three years ago we bought a brand of dishwasher other than kitchenaid. It did not last very long and it did not clean well. Our kitchenaid dishwasher cleans the dishes thoroughly, is quiet and has all the features we need. A want is a digital readout to tell the amount of time per wash but we are learning these times quickly and it is not really necessary. We are thankful for our kitchenaid.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Best Features of all Dishwashers
By Vonnie the Wizo Woman
This is the best dishwasher that I have ever purchased. We own several rental properties so I have purchased at least 10 dishwashers in the past 12 years. The features I most love are the "rinse and hold" and the options the wash. I would recommend this dishwasher to all of my friends!
love, love this dishwasher!
from Bonita Springs FL
I bought this dishwasher a year ago for the home we were living in and absolutely loved it. Then we sold that home and remodeled the kitchen of our new home and knew I wanted the same dishwasher. This dishwasher gets everything clean and sparkley. I do very little rinsing off of my dishes and pans, yes I put my pans in too. This is a lower priced unit but it has the necesssry cycles and runs very quiet. Also does a great job of drying the dishes. It has the garbage disposal and drying element which are must haves. I recommend this dishwasher to everyone.
stopped working after two years
I bought this machine two years ago and the control panel stopped working on it, It will cost $485 to fix it. I'm very unhappy.

Simple to operate!
from Denver, CO, United States
We purchased our dishwasher 4 weeks ago and we are happy with our purchase. It is simple to operate and has lots of room for silverware. The stainless steel interior is an added bonus.
By do not have a nickname
from Tallahassee, FL, United States
This dishwasher works fine. My one dislike is something I have never before experienced with previous dishwashers. Our kitchen is very small and the dishwasher is installed under the counter space where I do most of my foodpreparation. If I don't remember to push the control lock button and then evenslightly bump the front of the dishwasher it will run the cancel drain cycle. I'mstill trying to remember to set the control lock button when I empty the dishwasher. Also, you have to really push and hold that button to get it to come on. Since that has never been necessary on any previous dishwasher, I don't understand why it was made necessary on this particular dishwasher.
Screw driver and channel locks

I brought it home after having a problem with an "off brand".My wife had a friend over who was more surprised than my wife that I would do something so spontaneous. It' a quiet machine that does what it's designed to do.I'm not overly mechanical but I installed it in a reasonable amount of time with no cursing.
