This dishwasher definately cleans to a five star rating. It is by far the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. Overall it is a great dishwasher,however there is one problem. The silverware tops that seperate the silverware are very cheaply made and do not stay in place. They need to be put back into place all the time. You would think that for such an advanced dishwasher they would have made these of better quality and design. I should have kept the old silverware tray from my previous Kitchen Aid dishwasher and used it in the new one. Other than that it is a top quality dishwasher

My model is no longer in production but this one is similar in features and price. I will never buy kitchenaid again. Purchased in Oct 2012. The whole computer board went out in July 2014. They have had so many problems with the board going out of these machines that I had to wait 6 for the part. I was without my dishwasher for six weeks. Not to mention when the repair man pulled the washer out it had also leaked onto my hardwoods. (I then read this was also a common problem) Thanks goodness he caught it before my floor was totally ruined. I read others were not as lucky. After the board was replaced in 2014...here I am in 2015 with the same problem....a bad computer board and now Kitchenaid says its no longer their issue. I am stuck paying $250.00 to repair a dishwasher that is barely 3 years old and already had one board replaced and had a leaky value. I had never paid this much for a dishwasher but I assumed you get what you pay for......well in this case that is not true. In 22 years I have never had to call a repair man for my dishwasher until now. I would take the washer to the junk yard but its 3 days before Christmas and I have family coming in and don't have time to purchase a new dishwasher and get it installed. This dishwasher has been nothing but trouble. I guess this new board will last about a year. Next time I won't repair and I will buy an LG or GE....anything but Kitchenaid/Whirlpool etc.

Do NOT buy a Kitchenaid

By 

from SC

Does not last! electronic board burned out within one year of purchase. They paid to replace it the first time but I had to wait 6 weeks for the part. No dishwasher for six weeks! The board burned out again within 14 months of being replaced and now it is my problem. We paid $250 to have it replaced and its still not right. I think they use the same basic electronic board for all the models...so do not buy. This is the most I have ever paid for a dishwasher and it is the worst I have ever had as far as quality. It is great when it works! In 20 years I have never had to call out a repairman to work on a dishwasher until this one! Do not waist your money. Paid over $1500.00 and when this second board finally gives out I will not invest another $250.00 in the dishwasher. So I paid over $1,500.00 for the dishwasher and had to pay $250.00 for repairs within 3 years and the lights on the board still light up when they are not supposed to. This very expensive dishwasher for only 3-4 years...its not worth it.

Buyer Beware

By 

from Bakersfield, CA

I did not purchase this dishwasher, it came with a BRAND NEW home and was installed correctly. Well needless to say it broke within in 1 month. The lights on the control panel worked sporadically and Kitchenaid said there was nothing wrong with it. Maybe I got the lemon of their dishwashers but after 2 years the dishwasher NO LONGER works at all. It now serves as an expensive drying rack for my dishes. I will never buy a large kitchen aid product again. (I love their small mixers etc. but their large products do not work well.)
Oh and Kitchen aid only thinks that appliances break Monday-Friday.

Great Dishwasher

By 

from East Hanover, NJ

Verified Buyer

Bought a little over a month ago when we switched our appliances to Stainless Steel. Very happy with selection. Very quiet. The repeat setting (press start twice) is very cool. Only one that had a specific 'China' setting

Falling Apart

By 

from Parker, CO

Top rack bracket on our KitchenAid dishwasher fragmented nine months after purchase, spewing plastic into the inner workings of the machine and seizing up / damaging the unit. Think that's covered under warranty? Think again! KitchenAid/Whirpool's service technicians don't think so! Don't buy KitchenAid!

THE BEST DISHWASHER I HAVE EVER OWNED

By 

from Blairsville, Ga.

Verified Buyer

We have two houses with KitchenAid dishwasher in both. It cleans dishes, glassware and stainless pots and pans unlike any other dishwasher I have ever owned. I especially like the knife/fork/spoon compartments. It allows each to be washed thoroughly without any of them sticking together.

A complete lemon

By 

from Newbury Park

Bought this product about 4 yrs ago and got an extended warranty. Have had the repairman out about every 6 months. They've replaced the motherboard twice...and guess what, it's failed again. An absolute piece of junk.

Very tired of kitchen aid dishwashers!!!!

By 

from Avon, CT

I have purchased 2 kitchen aid dishwashers in the past 8 years. The first one i bought may have been a fluke as nothing ever got clean.
So again I purchases another thinking the brand name was so good it must be me. Well it is not me. I have tried numerous products rinses etc to get these dishes clean but to no avail as they still come out with some sort of food particle on them. Be informed that I take steps ahead of time to prewash dishes, make
sure disposal is clean, make sure water is very hot, put vinegar in rinse. My teenage sons says that our dishes have not really been clean for a while. Warning to all ...these energy saving products are a real disappointment
