I bought this dishwasher as part of a kitchen remodel. I did not buy this because of Kitchen Aid Rebates, rather, because of the rating, the quietness, and the stainless finish. This replaced my older Fisher Paykel dish drawer we I loved AND which still worked, but alas, it was white. At first I had trouble with the KitchenAid not cleaning the dishes. The repair man came out and explained that 1) the water has to be super hot (I always run the water until it's hot before starting), 2) I should definitely select the "high temperature wash" option, 3) they recommend the Finish Quantum product, and 4) do not rinse off dishes first - just remove food pieces by scraping. I was not happy having to switch from my "green" auto dishwasher product but when I did all he said, the dishes come out clean with no spots or film on glassware. So I can put dishes with spaghetti sauce or salad dressing still on them and they come out clean using all the tips the repair man gave me. Stainless of course does show fingerprints but I just wipe it down with my Shaklee Basic H2 and we're good to go! I was afraid it would use more water than my DishDrawer but they explained it would not, and I find that I load it up and it's OK to leave dishes in with dried food for a day and then start it - they still come out clean.

I have never paid this much for a dishwasher and have never had one that was as useless as this one. I have always believed in KitchenAid dishwashers, but this one has destroyed that opinion. I have tried using the recommended products as well as other combinations that have worked well with other dishwashers but the dishes are still NOT clean at all, hottest water, toughest cycle -- I've tried everything to get this to clean the dishes. I AM really impressed with how quiet it is, but since I have to hand wash about half the dishes when it's finished, I know I am wasting a LOT of water. I really wish I had not bought this dishwasher. The old Whirlpool I replaced was loud and once I got used to how to load and what to use, all the dishes came out sparkling with NO rinsing. With this one, I have to wash them first, and they still come out dirtier than when I put them in. Don't buy it!!!!

So far, so good

By 

from Maplewood, NJ

Verified Buyer

We got this unit a few weeks ago, so I'm somewhat reluctant to review anything that you've only had a little experience with, but as the title says: So far, so good. Nice looking machine. VERY quiet. We had a Bosch right before this (for an amazing 19 years or something and pretty quiet) and this one is much quieter even. Cleans the dishes, oh yes. My only problem with it is that the control are touch-based (no buttons), which I'm always wary will break down faster than mechanical ones, but that's just a feeling. Also, there are tiny little lights that are very bright LEDs, which make it hard (not easier) to read the labeling for the function. Which, is tiny black type on the metallic surface, which doesn't offer much contrast to enable easy reading. Fortunately, once you set your preference, if you're like us and mostly use a standard setting, it's a moot point.

Very quite and cleans great.

I bought this last month. We are still trying to get use to loading it the best way because the racks are different from our old dishwasher. Once we get that down we will love it.

Great dishwaher

By 

from Loveland, CO

Verified Buyer

I looked at every brand and model before deciding on this dishwasher. My first priority was the lower rack configuration. This model does not assume you always use small plates and large plates. And, it does not have large holes(spaces) in the bottom for items to drop through. I like that the tines are even, a large plate can stand in the same space as a small one and the fact the back tines can be folded down for larger items.
My 2nd priority was how quiet the machine is when running. I can honestly say, I can only tell when it's running because of the lights on the door. It is very quiet.
If I had to mark it down for something, the top rack is molded too sharply for glassware. There is not enough space to place the glasses between the steep "V" shape without them falling forward, especially my large coffee mugs and tumblers. A flatter configuration would work much better.
All said and done-this is a very nice dishwasher.

OK for the money

By 

from Nashville

Verified Buyer

I bought this unit at a liquidation outlet store with some minor cosmetic damage. The until functions well and was relatively easy to install myself as a replacement to another brand's unit which didn't seem worth repairing.
Overall my impression of the unit is that it's overall quality, while sufficient to me for the money I paid, doesn't handle and feel robust as an everyday used kitchen appliance and my sense is that it will not be a long lasting addition to my kitchen.

Beautiful machine

By 

from Rehoboth Beach, DE

Verified Buyer

beautiful machine. full size racks capable of holding dishes and utensils of many shapes and sizes. Racks will not pull out so fsr as to dump your dishes on the floor. Dishes come out so very squeaky clean. Super, super quiet. I walk over to it and feel it to see if it is running but that is not necessary with the LED lighting on the control panel the tells me what is going on. The legend printed on the stainless steel control panel is difficult for me to read and the LED's are so bright they further complicate the legibility of the functions printed on the control panel. My solution was to enlarge a section of the owners manual that displays these functions and tape it inside a cabinet door above the machine. Now when I can't read the current status of the dishwasher I just open the cabinet door and compare the LED positon to the current operating cycle the machine is in.
