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 have used the dishwasher about 6 times and have had 2 service calls. Door latch design is very poor. Door will open during wash cycle or if it doesn't open, will allow water to leak out. 1st service call, door locking mechanism was replace, 2nd call adjusted install angle in case problem was caused by upper rack pushing against door causing it to open during wash cycle. Dishwasher should not be this sensitive to door closing.

                          I am enjoying my new dishwasher. If I could suggest one improvement, it would be that the top shelf extend out further for ease of loading and unloading glasses and small bowls/plates. I am very pleased with the quieter operation.

                                WE have had this for about a month. When I had done my research a year or so ago, I was determined to get a Kitchenaid. So I was actually glad when the plumber told me to just get a new dishwasher!

                                I can't believe how quiet this is. You have to stand right by it to even hear it. The dishes have been coming out very clean. The rack for the silverware has taken some getting used to, but the separation of the silverware has definitely improved their cleanliness when coming out of the dishwasher.

                                The controls are on the front of my machine and if you brush against it you can accidentally start it. It's a bit of an annoyance, but not a big thing.

                                My only real complaint is that the instruction booklet and my machine don't really match up. The buttons aren't marked the same way so I can't tell if for instance I really can do a load that is just the top rack or not. I doubt I will ever need that, but I'd like to know if it does do that for when I just have drinks and snacks for a few people. And the instruction booklet shows making 3 rows of dishes on the bottom for a service for 12, and there is no way I can figure out how to do that with any of my 5 sets of dishes!

                                The detergent door didn't open twice, and I was getting annoyed with that, but I realized I had a large cutting board that must have been obstructing it, so I now know to watch what can get in the way of that.

                                I would definitely buy this again!

                                      My last dishwasher the cups were always cloudy no matter what I did. I've had this dish washer six months and after it got fixed it is running fantastically. I was grateful to buy it from a place that it came with a year guarantee. Since it was fixed we haven't had any problem.

                                                  Cleans super well and quieter than our last KitchenAid which lasted over 15 years

                                                        My new dishwasher is so quiet, we don't even know it is running. I used to wait to run our old dishwasher until we were heading to bed. Not anymore, with our new KitchenAid!

                                                              Very nice dishwasher...very quiet, so quiet. is it really working...??

                                                              well after several wash cycles tries, including a tech call support. Got a a warranty service rep visit...apparently not a quiet dishwasher - a bad motor... that explains everything...going back and getting a replacement...
