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.

Simply unreliable product
By Mike Molecule
from Creedmoor, NC
Comments about KitchenAid Superba Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
Our KUDS30IXSS was purchased just over 2 years ago. The latch went defective after 1 year, got it repaired for a couple of hundred bucks. Today (2 years after purchase) the unit is dead, won't power up and is full of water. We are planning on getting ANYTHING except a KitchenAid. Simply unreliable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Product & Great Customer Service
We have had our dishwasher for several years now. It still does a great job cleaning our dishes. We had an issue with the top dishwasher rack- it was still under warranty so Customer Service was able to send us a replacement.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Horrible Quality- Falling Apart
By Lew the manual dishwasher
from South Dakota
Have owned for just 2 years. Plastic parts in rack break, replace, then break again. Brittle and weak under light loading. Upper rack stopped rotating, more broken plastic components. Contacted manufacturer each time, no apologies but will sell parts. Will also sell an additional warranty to cover the repair for $275, because there are likely more problems coming! This is one third the cost of what I paid for the machine just 25 months ago. After owning 3 homes and bought a new dishwasher for each this is the most expensive and has been the worst purchase decision. I shall never buy a Kitchen Aid or recommend again.
By Very Upset
from Macomb, MI
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.
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
from draper ut
JUst like all the other reviews said, the top rollers fell apart along with the top rack spacers. Unit is very finnicky on cleaning and we never know when it's going to clean and when it won't. Can't use any soap other than Cascade or it leaves a nasty film. The buttons on the face of the unit are very sensitive and if you lean against them while at the kitchen counter the machine turns on. VERY disappointed with this unit....
Dissapointed and Disgusted
from New Jersey
Same complaints as many of the other reviewers. This dishwasher is less than 4 years old and I have had nothing but trouble with it! Less than a year in the top rack rollers basically disintegrated and needed to be replaced. The control panel needed to be replaced before it was 3 yrs old and now it needs to be replaced again (it has been just under a year since it was last replaced).My last dishwasher was a Kitchen aid that was over 15 years old, the quality of the product has greatly decreased. I Will NEVER buy a kitchen aid dishwasher again!
from Easton, PA
Top shelf falls down due to cheap plastic parts breaking. Long wash times. Green light stays on when cycle is done, waste of electricity and annoying.
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.
Problems Galore (control panel, plastic rollers, etc
13 Months after purchasing the plastic rollers on the top rack simply fell apart. This allowed the top drawer to drop off the rails when being pulled out. I paid $30 to replace one side. Within 2 weeks of repair the other side broke.The control panel stopped working and required repair. Often times I had to reset the dishwasher using my house fuse box. Now there is very little water pressure so dishes do not even get washed as the sprayer doesn't have enough pressure to rotate it. Now at 2 year point, I'm simply trashing the unit and will NEVER purchase another Kitchen Aide dishwasher.I very surprised there has not been a recall on this product.
