This is my second review of this machine- -Does a great job of cleaning my dishes , runs super quite, seems very well made! Only issue is that one of the countdown bars in the little front window burned out and was replaced under warranty ! Also the CLEAN sign in the front display says CLEAN EVEN WHEN rinse & hold is used, makes no sense to me !! BUT I love this machine very much!! T.Y.

Bought this in July 2015. We are now pre scrubbing every single item loaded into the dishwasher. We have spent the last 2.5 months trying to find ways to load it that food is not left on plates, glasses, and silverware. We have tried different detergents, different rinse agents, and even water conditioners,to no avail. We run the dishwasher about once a day. The dishwasher has unique racks that took time to figure out but even on the bottom rack with space between the dishes, food is stuck on and hen dried on with the drying cycle. It's quiet. Cycles run a long time, but are average 70-90 minutes. Pro cycles don't improve results. We have had 3 other Kitchen Aid dishwashers and loved them. Wish there was a 90 day guarantee on these. We hate this one and hate that we had to pay so much more for something that does not work as well as older models. We are now hoping it lives a short life so we can replace after 5 years instead of 10. We probably won't ever by KitchenAid again as new models should be easier and clean better than previous models. I miss our 2012 model in the old house.

Top rack issue, foul odor, and overall flimsy design

By 

from Toledo, OH

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

We've had this dishwasher for about 2.5 years. We have had many repair issues. The motor burnt out after the top rack failed and a dislodged piece was injested. This was replaced by the KitchenAid warranty.

Recently, the upper level wash came free of the mounting bracket. The mounting bracket was loose and I bent the bracket by hand (too pliable) in order to resecure the washing mechanism.

Lastly, I'm not sure this is the dishwasher fault 100%, but the odor coming from the dishwasher is needs to be addressed weekly. Without weekly cleaning the odor continues to return.

Would not recommend this product.

The control panel burns out easily

By 

from Alabama

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

I bought this dishes washer less than two years ago and now it will not turn on. I had the extended warranty and found out that the control panel was burn out. Been waiting two weeks now for a new one so I can use the dishwasher. I would not buy this model again, the extra cost is not worth it. Doubt I buy another Kitchenaid appliance

don't ever buy a kitchenaid dishwasher

By 

from red bank, nj

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

I bought a kitchenaid dishwasher about 2 years ago. Such pool quality - the wheels snapped off the top rack, the tracks are completely bent and none of that is covered by any extended or limited warranty. Apparntly Kitchenaid wants to continue to make money off part. Their customer service department is of no help

Not very happy with dishwasher

By 

from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

This dishwasher is not the quality that I was expecting., especially for the cost. I replaced my almost twenty year old wonderful Kitchenaid Superba diishwasher with this one, to my horror.

My silverware comes out with little brown spots that must be scrubbed off; not tomato stains, but rusty orange stains.
The cycle runs much to long.

The stainless steel on the door streaks after every cycle and looks terrible.

Top rack not well made

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

I had this dishwasher installed 1 year ago when I remodeled my kitchen. After about 6 months the top rack started falling apart. I am very careful with my appliances so misuse is not a factor. Technican came out today and informed me parts are not covered with extended warranty. Kitchenaid had always been a quality brand but now I am rethinking that.

Failed in less than a year

By 

from Parker, CO

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

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!

TOP RACK FALLING APART

By 

from Fort Washington, PA

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

Had the Architect Series dishwasher installed in September of 2013. Two years later the top rack and the connectors to the rack rail have literally fallen apart. This has rendered the top rack useless. I had my previous dishwasher for over 10 years and never experienced any problems. The quality of the rack materials for this level of dishwasher seems quite poor.
