I spent a little more money than I intended on this machine, but I am proud that I did. The interior is stainless steel instead of plastic, and the color is a beautiful metallic taupe -- just a higher quality overall. The bottom has 4 blades instead of the usual 2, and the silverware basket is very long. The top even has options for drying those delicate wine-glasses. Best of all, the dishes actually get clean without that film on them that I had to scrub off; I no longer have to wipe lingering food off the silverware every time; and the tupperware comes out dry. The machine is ridiculously quiet. I used to have to leave the house to run my previous machine. Lastly, I like the option to buy white, because my kitchen is darker and needs to reflect all light.

I like the handle and the control buttons on the front, although sometimes I bump into it and turn it on accidentally. So,I need to remember to use the Control Lock button.
I prefer the older style with a disposal inside to this filter type because now there is often an odor even though I clean the filter weekly.
This is my first DW with a stainless steel interior. It is nice and quiet.
Most of the dishes come out clean, but we usually need to hand wash off some stubborn food after we empty it.
The bottom rack comes off the track frequently, so we have to pull it open very slowly.

                    as soon as installer left I realized the top rack didn't seem to be coming out as far as it should. I was not able to learn how to proceed by getting troubleshooting help over the phone from kitchen-aid. had to have a repair man come out to adjust track/rail that basket slid on. he wasn't here 5 minutes and he fixed it but it should have been put together correctly to from the start. (dishwasher was new in box and fully assembled upon purchase) I trust the kitchen aid name and hope this isn't a sign of things to come. during the first washing, (recommended brand of )dishwasher soap packet did not dissolve so during rinse cycle soap was still being distributed...messy. however, it is very quite and the light cycle seems to get even heavy soil off dishes.

                          What is KitchenAid famous for? Making the best Stand mixers & Dishwashers for generations is all. For years I've promised myself a KitchenAid Dishwasher, and for whatever reason have always ended up talking myself into whatever brand that was the "best bang for the buck"at the time. Well best bang for the buck doesn't always equate to best dishwasher for the buck. After experiencing 4 poor performing machines in a row just because they were perceived as a good deal, I'm literally upset with myself for not seeing the true value of a KitchenAid dishwasher. It's a powerful cleaner, it's easy to load & use, it oozes build quality, and quite frankly I know you're gonna spend the first two weeks you own this machine checking to see if it's even running because it's that quiet! ...

                                I love this dishwasher! It is so quiet, I have to check the display to be sure it is running. It has the best rack options of any dishwasher I've ever owned, which allows me to load more dishes, pots and pans than ever before. It cleans efficiently and sanitizes. It has many options, from ProScrub to light rinse. I highly recommend this dishwasher. My last dishwasher was a top of the line Kenmore. I'm glad I branched out to this brand.

                                      We bought this dishwasher about a year ago to replace my GE that was 24 years old. I HATED to see the old one go. But,,, after getting used to the differences (as with Any new product) I am SO happy with this new dishwasher. I did take out the back silverware basket lid as it allowed me more "open" space for utensils. The new KitchenAid dishwasher is VERY quiet and as other reviews have stated, you have to really listen to see if it IS on. Everything comes out Clean and dry. So,,,,, I Love, Love, Love my new dishwasher. I can only HOPE I have it for 24 years!

                                            We bought appliances for the kitchen and then started the remodel - not smart but we got a good deal. So the dishwasher was the last appliance to be put in after changes in the cabinet size and countertop height. It was so worth the wait - never been disappointed in a KitchenAid and this is no exception. The design is perfect for wine glasses or large lobster pots. ProScrub option works great for the times I just don't rinse like I should. Seems like everything that didn't work about my previous dishwashers has been remedied in this one. Love it!!!!

                                                  Looks great, quiet as can be, cleans very well. Love the LED indicators in the front... So easy to see the indicators.

                                                        My dishwasher was my favorite Christmas gift! My dishes are cleaner, I run the dishwasher less often because of its capacity and interior design, and we can actually carry on a conversation or listen to our favorite television program while it is running. Truly, it is a gift that keeps on giving!

                                                        This is the first time I've been dissatisfied with KitchenAid. The cleaning is sub-par. If even a couple of specks of food remain on a dish and the dishwasher isn't run for a couple of days, the dried specks remain. Today I took out a "clean" plate for lunch and saw a sizable stain on it. It came off with a quick wipe with of damp dishcloth, but it shouldn't have been there in the first place. I expected better from KitchenAid.
