We purchased the unit March 2014 to replace an existing Samsung unit. This is a new model and much research was done by us primarily because we want a serviceable, reliable unit at a good value. This unit uses much less rinse agent than other units even set on max. Initially I did not think the unit was dispensing rinse agent, however, a service rep came out and eliminated my concerns. It is sturdy, functional and has all the features young and not so young alike can utilize. We had many choices and it came down to this unit or a Bosch. The rack system, drying element control option and sturdy construction allowed us to choose the KitchenAid unit.

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!!!!

Dishwasher early review

By

Very pleased so far. Cleans very well and is Quite! Replaced a very good but somewhat noisier 16-year old Kitchenaid due to control board burnout. Appreciate Whirlpool - Kitchenaid remediation for that.

We bought this dishwasher about a month ago and have loved it ever since. Super quiet and cleans all types of loads superbly. Especially like the auto sensor feature that senses the size of the load for you

This washer is so quiet, I have to go to the machine and listen to make sure it's running. Had my old kitchenaid for 16 yrs, it was still working but the racks were a mess. Very pleased with my purchase.

Finally KitchenAid Dishwasher!

By 

from Omaha NE

Verified Buyer

Finally got the cash to replace my 24 year old dishwasher. Didn't think I could afford a KitchenAid but was pleasantly surprised. It is so quiet and does a fantastic job cleaning my dishes. Next on my bucket list is a new Refrigerator. guess what brand I'm buying? You got it- another KitchenAid product. Merry Christmas to me!

This is by far the quietest dishwasher I have owned!

By 

from McSherrystown, PA

Verified Buyer

Can't say enough good things about the performance of this unit. Stainless steel inside and great features for silverware and larger utensils. I have only had it about 3 weeks, but would recommend it to anyone looking for an efficient and stylish dishwasher.

very quiet but doesn't dry as well as older model

By 

from Poway CA

Verified Buyer

We replaced a 12 year old Kitchenaide dishwasher with this model as old one wasn't cleaning top rack of dishes. This unit seems to wash effectively and is VERY quiet! However, the drying function is not as good as our old unit......if I am not nearby to open the door and let the steam escape when the dry cycle begins, the dishes remain VERY moist and there is quite a lot of water remaining in the unit.

I love, love, love my new dishwasher! I love the capacity, the upper shelf that you can adjust and especially how quiet it is. It was more expensive than other dishwashers we have purchased, however, as the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and it's worth every penny we've spent!

Very Quiet

By 

from Athens, Ga

Verified Buyer

Runs very quietly. Wish it was a little less deep in size in that it doesn't fit under my counter as snug as my previous one, and when leaning against counter, the sensitivity of the instrument panel causes cycles to engage.
