Features:

  • ProWash™ Cycle
    Determines the appropriate cycle for washing dishes and makes real-time adjustments for the best cleaning performance
  • Concealed Controls

  • Heat Dry Option
    Delivers the best drying by activating a recessed heating element at the end of the cycle
  • Durable Stainless Steel Construction
    Both the inner tub and lower wash arms are made of stainless steel to help withstand the test of time by resisting streaks, stains, and odors. As an added benefit, the stainless steel interior retains heat to help improve drying performance

  • 4-Hour Delay Option
    Allows you to set the dishwasher to start at a more convenient time

I have been pleased with this purchase and wish I had purchased this in the first place.

The first dishwasher I bought for my new house was a Samsung and I had nothing but problems with it. I thought you get what you pay for, so put out the extra money to get what I thought was a top-of-the-line product. I had to have it serviced two or three times a year while under the extended warranty. Finally I asked the repairman what he would have recommended and he suggested a KitchenAid. So when the warrenty ran out and the dishwasher died, that is what I went with.

I have had this dishwasher for about a month and so far no problems. It is not completely quiet like some reviews suggested, but it is pretty quiet. The only problen I had was connecting my water and drain lines. The electric cord (as part of a separate kit you buy) is long enough. But you have to tape the water line (also part of a kit) and drain lines to the floor before sliding the dishwasher in. Then you make the connections while laying on your stomach in the bottom front of the machine. The connections on the water line are metal and the water connections on the dishwasher are plastic. So my water line was not fitting on nicely to the dishwasher and making new threads. I solved the problem by first making the elbow connection loosely by hand before connecting this to the water line, and then tightening everything later. The drain line that comes with the dishwashed is also just about 6 inches too short. I had to stretch it a bit to fit onto my garbage disposal connection.

Other than the connections, which you will ever have to do just once (hopefully), it appears to run well and does a good job cleaning. Using the rinse aid recommendation is also probably good to help keep the inside of the dishwasher spot free as well as your dishes.

It was finally time to replace the builder grade dishwasher that came with the house. Nothing was wrong with it, just looking for something quieter. Went shopping for a new washer and selected this model. We had to wait for it to wait about a week and a half for it to come in from the factory, as we were told it was a high-end model. Turns out, the only thing high-end was the price. The large items that fit into our old washer do not fit into this model even with the adjustable shelf. Often there are a few dishes that still have food on them and we have to now scrub them in the sink to get them clean. I can't wait for this high-end washer to break so I can replace it. I wish I had my cheap dishwasher back, it least it cleaned!

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

Our previous dishwasher was a KitchenAid. Ran like a champ and was nearly 20 years old when we bought the new one. Only reason we got rid of the old dishwasher was the racks rotted out and cost way to much to replace. Everything else still worked like new. Now to the new dishwasher. Sadly, we have been very disappointed since day 1. Many more plastic parts (like everything these days), much less insulation, MUCH longer drying time, MUCH longer wash cycle, dirty dishes left after every wash, spots and residue on everything after each wash. Unfortunately, like many products, things just aren't made like they used to be. WE aren't giving up on the KitchenAid brand yet but this product was/is a complete disappointment.

Very Quiet

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

I purchased the dishwasher grouped into a package and the local appliance store. At first I was skeptical since you can not test ride them, but the product name convinced me to buy. I am happy that I did with this product but all the KitchenAid appliancesin the package

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

I recently replaced my 20 year old Kitchenaid set. This dishwasher is nice inside and out and very quite. The only complaint I have is that the panel on the bottom is black plastic. My old one had a metal plate.

Great Dishwasher

By 

from Burlingame

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

Wanted to wait several months before writing review to know the dishwasher better. At first, was worried about the vent on the side of the door venting onto the adjacent cabinet and destroying it. I have seen this on reviews from other sites and was a major concern. But so far no steam comes out of it, only warm not hot air. All dishes comes out clean and does it efficiently and quietly. Rack height adjusts and the heating element dry well also. Great buy!

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

No problems with this dishwasher except for the fact that the soap dispenser will not open if you use the front row of the bottom rack for dinner plates or anything of that size. You have to be sure to place smaller items there.

Awesomely Quiet!

By

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

Bought this DW to replace our old KitchenAid DW that still worked fine, but the wire racks were rusting and falling apart. Replacing them was more expensive than a new machine :-/
New DW cleans fine and is way quieter, but doesn't dry nearly as well. For that I'd give this DW only 4.75 stars.

Love my new KitchenAid dishwasher!

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

Love this appliance! Very, very quiet. Dishes come out sparkling. It is large--holds a lot. One thing I do wish is that a few of the vertical rods (top rack and bottom) were a little farther apart, to accommodate larger bowls in an upright position. Not a major problem!

Comments about KitchenAid 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

Have had this dishwasher for about a month now. Extremely quiet. I have to put my ear up to hear to be sure it's running. It cleans and dries to perfection. Had a Maytag before this (which I thought was great)and never thought I'd like anything better. But this KitchenAid is outstanding.

We purchased this about two months ago and it's been a great dishwasher. Cleans very well, and it's extremely quiet. With our open floor plan we can barely hear it when it's running.
