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 have never paid this much for a dishwasher and have never had one that was as useless as this one. I have always believed in KitchenAid dishwashers, but this one has destroyed that opinion. I have tried using the recommended products as well as other combinations that have worked well with other dishwashers but the dishes are still NOT clean at all, hottest water, toughest cycle -- I've tried everything to get this to clean the dishes. I AM really impressed with how quiet it is, but since I have to hand wash about half the dishes when it's finished, I know I am wasting a LOT of water. I really wish I had not bought this dishwasher. The old Whirlpool I replaced was loud and once I got used to how to load and what to use, all the dishes came out sparkling with NO rinsing. With this one, I have to wash them first, and they still come out dirtier than when I put them in. Don't buy it!!!!

Beautiful machine

By 

from Rehoboth Beach, DE

Verified Buyer

beautiful machine. full size racks capable of holding dishes and utensils of many shapes and sizes. Racks will not pull out so fsr as to dump your dishes on the floor. Dishes come out so very squeaky clean. Super, super quiet. I walk over to it and feel it to see if it is running but that is not necessary with the LED lighting on the control panel the tells me what is going on. The legend printed on the stainless steel control panel is difficult for me to read and the LED's are so bright they further complicate the legibility of the functions printed on the control panel. My solution was to enlarge a section of the owners manual that displays these functions and tape it inside a cabinet door above the machine. Now when I can't read the current status of the dishwasher I just open the cabinet door and compare the LED positon to the current operating cycle the machine is in.

Replaced a KitchenAid with the new KitchenAid

By 

from Tucker Georgia

Verified Buyer

I bought this new KitchenAid dishwasher because we had a KitchenAid dishwasher for 15 years that works so well. The new one seems to even have more features and it's quieter than the old one. We were happy with the installation and have been happy with the performance of the product since it was installed.

Very quiet and cleans well. Only wish I went with the model with interior buttons. Would give 5 stars but the machine easily turns on when I stand next to it if I am not careful and I bump it on lean on it.
