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 thought KitchenAid meant quality and chose this model over a competitor's dishwasher. This dishwasher looks good in my new kitchen, however the top rack cannot handle a regular load of glasses and cereal bowls. The wheels that hold the top rack in place fell apart. Currently I am doing dishes by hand because when I try to start the 2 year old dishwasher, it starts filling up, buzzes, and then immediately drains. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I am tempted to replace this appliance with a different brand. I cannot find a repairman that can come before Thanksgiving. The only reason I replaced my 10 year old (different brand) dishwasher was because I wanted quality and a stainless steel finish.

Cleans better than any dishwasher Iv'e had

By 

from Chino,CA

Verified Buyer

I bought this dishwasher about a month ago. It was pretty easy to install on took me about an hour. Love how quiet and efficient this dishwasher is. Everything comes out so clean with no spots! The design looks like the much more expensive dishwashers. I would definitely recommend this dishwasher.

Purchased 4 months ago and are very happy with it. Glassware comes out sparkling and third top rack is great for large utensils. It's so quiet we wonder sometimes if it's running.

Does Not Work

By 

from Greensboro, GA

Verified Buyer

This dishwasher was installed as part of a new home purchase. The first night in the house, when we tried to use it, the dishwasher did not work. The soap packet was dispensed and then melted in the bottom of the appliance as the dishwasher generated a lot of heat and nothing else.

The repairman sent out via the warranty said both the motor and pump were bad and that it was not the first time he'd seen that issue with these dishwashers. We are now trying to get a replacement from the home manufacturer.

Had I purchased this appliance I would be returning it and buying a different make and model.

Great machine, very quiet and great looking

By 

from Burke, Va

Verified Buyer

This is our second Kitchenaid dishwasher and believe they are the most dependable out there. Recently, after 15 months it stopped pumping water out and we had to call for repair. They said they would cover even though the warranty was out by 3 months. Beat that! Turned out the problem was piece of glass blocking the outflow pipe and the repair was completed in no time. I could say that the filter system should keep a piece of glass the size of a dime out of the water exits. But perhaps next time if a glass breaks I will need to thoroughly check the pan and filters.

Overheat runaway

By 

from CALGARY

So I had the tech out and here is a quote from him
"Examined dishwasher found extensive damage from an overheating runaway condition."
I am truly concerned that this unit might start a fire in my house. I phoned Whirlpool in Canada and spoke to the client services. I raised my concerns and all they said is that I have a binding contract with the third party warranty provider and they can and will do nothing. I insisted to get this unit replaced but they want to do nothing. .
