I purchased your product after owning a Bosch dishwasher for more than 13 years. I wanted a dishwasher with all the features that provide exceptionally clean dishes while producing no additional noise in my homeI am very pleased with the perfromance thus far. I am happy to report that the dishwasher is so quiet that I sometimes have to put my ear down in front if it to see if it is running..LOL!I am adjusting to the controls being on top of the door. I have accidentally pressed the CANCEL/DRAIN button several times while loading my dishwasher. This has been the only problem for me thus far.My Bosch was an excellent dishwasher but I experienced numerous problems with the computer module and costly repairs. I remain hopeful that I will never have these problems with my Kitchenaid.The rest of my kitchen applicances are 18 years old and I will most likely replace them in the near future with Kitchenaid products based on my experience with my new dishwasher!

1) I do not understand how other reviews call this dishwasher super quiet. When it is running, I can sit in my adjoining living room, reading a book, and hear every swish of the jets. The dishwasher isn't loud, but I can totally hear it. 2) This is a lower cost model. The only options it has are high-temp scrub, sani rinse, delay wash and heated dry. There is no rinse only or "pot scrubber" type add-on to a cycle. 3) The auto wash takes 3 hours!!!!! on a dirty load. 4) The 1 Hour Wash does an OK job and actually takes 1 hour. 4) I have had other KitchenAid dishwashers and this one does not clean as well as they did. It does an OK job, but I have to scrub the bottom of the pots before running them through the dishwasher or else they come out dirty. 5) Sometimes this dishwasher leaves crumbs in the glasses. 6) The utensil rack is very shallow, especially in the upper position, maybe .75 inches. It's about 2 inches in the lower position. 7) The top and bottom rack lose some space to the utensil rack, and so I have a hard time fitting our stainless steel water bottles and travel mugs in the top rack.

Louder than specs and stinks.
By T J Koby

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Cycle White Built-In Dishwasher:
This dishwasher has two major design flaws not worthy KitchenAid brand.Firstly, it is louder than specification. I bought it mainly for looks and quietness. Per specs it should be 2-3 times less loud than my other luxury brand dishwasher rated at 50 dB.Actually it is slightly louder.Secondly it does not drain completely after the program. You need to separately drain it. If you will forget, you will have a sewer like stink after few days if you do not use it daily. We had it checked by Whirlpool technician and told everything is up to specifications. We thought we are buying a Lexus of appliances, but it is more like a Mercury.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Dishes are still wet after cycle done
from Madison, WI
Wish I had bought a Bosch, at least I wouldn't be wasting energy on a heating element that doesn't seem to do anything. Otherwise seems to work fine, cleans dishes well but have had to tighten screws that came undone a year after purchase.
from Belton, MO
So quiet, absolutely love. Old dishwasher was a GE that I only had for a couple years before getting rid of it, I could not even run it until everyone was out of the room because it was so loud & you'd usually turn it on at night when you went to bed even though you could hear it from the 2nd floor. So threw it out and bought this new KitchenAid. This one you can't even hear it if you're standing next to it. Insane & everything comes out so clean. Love it! Only thing i'm disappointed with is that I didn't buy it sooner. LOL
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far I have only run it 3 times, but had very good luck when following suggested products. I would have liked a more complete manual with loading suggestions as well. This is my third Kitchenaid (three different homes) and I am not disappointed with my decision to replace the one that was in my home.

We bought our KitchenAid dishwasher to replace our 15 year old KitchenAid. This one is so quiet, I have to look at the panel lights to know it is on. We set it not to use electricity to dry. It makes a little beep and a green light goes on when the washing is complete. We open the door to let the steam out and the dishes dry beautifully.

We bought this two years ago when we decided to downsize. We absolutely love love love the dishwasher. We moved from a 2600 sq ft house into a 1600 sq ft manufactured home and my only request was another great KitchenAid dishwasher. It is my bet friend after all the family dinners! Thanks for making such a great product!

No issues, works great, quiet enough, liked the look too.Adjustable top shelf handy. Cutlery tray handy.
from Woodstock, ON, Canada
We bought this dishwasher because of its quiet ratings, it's sleek design, being black with hidden controls, stainless steel interior, and a very top rack for longer cutlery. It has NOT disappointed.The only thing that I can complain about (though petty) is the loss of two cereal bowl spaces in the back middle of upper main rack, due to the water feed housing to the rack spray. Other than that, I love it!
