I've had this for a several months now and I'm pretty happy with it. I have mostly pros, but a few cons:

I replaced a 26-year old dishwasher so not having to pre-rinse was foreign to me but certainly got used to it fast!

I'm so pleased with how well it cleans dirty plates, baked-on casserole dishes, pots & pans, and even my crockpot. I scrape off big pieces of food but pre-rinse none of the above. I don't even always use the pro-scrub option for the really baked on stuff, it cleans all of that stuff so well on normal wash.

I do pre-rinse utensils though. With the utensil basket along the right side wall and plates lined up next to it, I feel it hinders the amount of water reaching the utensils and once in a while I'd find a still-dirty fork or spoon. So I'm mindful of that when loading and try not to put cutting boards or tall plates next to the utensil holder. Keeping the removable slotted top on the utensil holder works best because it keeps the utensils from nesting together.

The spray arm under the top rack is great. Burnt-on saucepans on the top rack come out just as clean as stuff on the bottom rack. I love the bottle clips to secure small, lightweight items to the top rack, wish it came with a few more.

Wasn't crazy about idea of having to clean the filter but it pops out easy & you just rinse it off. I do it monthly and because I do scrape big stuff off plates before loading, it's not bad at all.

This thing is SO QUIET. I love that I can run it while we're still sitting at the dinner table. You literally have to stand right in front of it to hear it run.

Heated drying option dries everything well, but I do find water droplets on the right side of the back wall, and a small puddle on the utensil basket handle and the 2 handles that raise and lower top rack. Heating drying is definitely a must because without it everything is wet and spotty.

With my old dishwasher I used a liquid gel detergent and no rinse aid (it left a few water spots but not bad at all.) I tried that with this dishwasher and it cleaned fine, but it left the dishes wet & very spotty. I definitely get the best drying results when using the recommended detergent and rinse aid that came with it.

I do put plastic food storage containers on top rack, and plastic serving spoons, spatulas, etc. But not the flexible soft-rubber coated utensils because they seem to be left with detergent or rinse aid residue.

I very much like some of the flexibility features like the adjustable top rack, and moveable/fold down tines.

I would have preferred a mechanical control panel vs digital but that's a thing of the past and only seems to be available on very low-end dishwashers. I do have to keep the control lock on when not in use because the control panel is sensitive and everyone seems to lean against it and turn it on by accident. There is an identical model with hidden controls but I had to draw the line somewhere on price and it wasn't worth the extra $ to me.

So, of course it's not perfect, I don't feel there is such a thing. I've had to adapt here and there to get the most out of it. But overall, I feel it works really well and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Sorry for the lengthy review, but I find detailed reviews to be helpful to me, so I hope this can be helpful to someone else.

Controls are easily pressed accidently if leaning against the countertop. The dishwasher has been used about 7 times, and about half the time it leaks at the bottom left front door seal onto the floor (not from the water hook up or drain area. Intermittent so near to impossible for repairman to find and fix.

Disappointed in KitchenAid

By 

from Greenville SC

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher in December to replace another KitchenAid that only lasted 4 years.I really wasn't crazy about having another KitchenAid, but my options were limited. With this new one the racks are sturdy which I like; however, it does not hold as much as my old one. The major disappointing thing is that my dishes do not come out clean. I often have to rewash dishes from the top rack even after rinsing before loading. I have NEVER rinsed my dishes. Why have a dishwasher if I have to rinse? I use a rinse agent, but my dishes are still not always clean. At this point I would not recommend this dishwasher. It is quiet which is a big plus. The control panel is nice and the buttons are easy to operate. It has many features, but I wish I could just get a dishwasher with simple cycles that cleans and dries.

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I was forced to buy this because my last Kitchen Aid dishwasher was such a --------. I had to keep this brand because my entire kitchen has this brand. So far, I love the new dishwasher. Maybe their quality has improved over time. We'll see!

Excellent cleaning and runs quiet

By 

from Jacksonville, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I purchased this unit two months ago and I am extremely happy with it. Cleans beautifully and runs so quietly you can barely hear it. The only down side is the controls being on the outside of the front panel. If you lean or bump into it, it will start a cycle. With just my husband and I at home this has not been an issue but, if you have children or others living in your home it might present a problem. A better design would be to have the controls on the top of the door.

This product is working fairy well. I used to own a bosch and was always please with that.

It's taking a bit of time getting used to the different features but overall feel that this is a good fit.

I like that the shelves and prongs adjust as needed.

New home installation

By 

from Vermillion, SD

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this and installed in our new home about 3 months ago. It is the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. It does a great job cleaning the dishes. However, I did not give it 4 stars, because for some reason a heavy soap film is building up on the inside of the door under the soap dispenser and runs down into the dishwasher bottom pan. The seal is also being gummed up and ruined. No matter how many times we run the dishwasher, the soap doesn't wash completely out. The residue is unsightly and taking the finish off the inside.
