Ninja Dish Washer!

As a born skeptic, I always read the worst reviews first, so I know about any potential problems. Then, I look at the number of bad reviews vs. good. The good ones were off the charts, so I made the decision. Boy, was it a good one!

Granted, all I care about is quietness, speed -- and that the dishes are not soaking wet when I take them out.

Arranging the tines and racks -- all that stuff? I really don't care so much at this point. Maybe I will one day.

I bought the machine over the phone from Home Depot, and the woman was quite helpful. However, one GIANT snafu.

She said I would only need an electrician present for hard wire installation -- the delivery people would do the rest of the installation. What she FAILED to tell me is the delivery people do NOT do installations in Mass. I was lucky I had my guy there who has not only electrical skills -- but plumbing as well.

So -- major problem averted. The delivery people simply dropped the machine off, and my guy took over.

Anyway, after intstallation, we did a test with Rinse Only -- no soap or rinse aid -- just to make sure no leaks, etc. But when it was done? A LOT of water inside.

Uh oh. Scary.

So I hold my breath, and do my FIRST load. I used the Platinum Pre-Packaged Cube (Do NOT attempt to take the plastic off, just drop it in the slot) -- and the liquid Rinse Aid.

I set it for Express Wash and Heat Dry.

Everything was in there. Pots, pans, dishes, plastic containers, silverware (I took the top off one of the silverware containers...works for me.)

WOW!

Less than 90 minutes later, I had the cleanest, driest load of dishes done -- ever in my life.

Even the bottoms of the plastic containers were dry. The tops with the deep creases were a bit wet, but I took them out SOON after it finished.

Now, I find if I wait for awhile after it is finished, the tops are a lot drier.

And QUIET? Like a Ninja, this thing could sneak right up behind you, and you would never know it was on. Wow. What a joy compared to my old piece of junk. It was like having a two-hour shouting match with a crazy neighbor.

So, I believe I got a good machine. (I am sure there are lemons and ones with problems, as in any manufactured item, but mine seems solid so far.)

It was installed correctly. (Yes, we needed the $20 adapter kit.)

I read the directions, and I believe, used the machine properly for my first load.

And I could not be happier with the result!

For me, it was all worth every single nickel so far. Yes, I did not want to convert to using the Rinse Aid. But it is really no big deal, and worth it for the dry dishes.

Plenty of room in there. And while I am sure I will learn a lot more about how to best utilize all the space, nothing really flops around. And thank God -- I don't have to take the plastic out of the dish washer and let it dry in the sink racks.

Except for the installation snafu, which could have been serious but I sidestepped by arranging someone with skill to be there, this purchase was flawless.

Very quiet but doesn't clean the dishes....

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!!!!

Nice washer

By

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought it 3 months ago . Very quiet! Feels like a solid machine. Does a great job on the dishes. It seems to be a bit smaller then my old machine but i noticed they are all smaller. over all I am very satisfied. If I had to say something negative it would be its a little hard to see the controls once started and the lights are on. Not a big deal . Im not in love with the silverware basket but it does work.

Junk

from Fairfax, Virginia

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Top rack wheels have broken multiple times, wheels on the bottom rack are now popping off, have gone thru two circuit breakers and now the dry light is staying on. Originally purchased in May 2012 it is now January 2015.

Flimsy

By 

from Hamilton ma.

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I design machinery and this is the flimsiest piece of junk I've ever seen. I had to repair one of the bottom braces before I installed it ( with a sheet metal screw ) The door looks racked because the unit doesn't have any kind of frame. Everything on this thing is flimsy. Made in America means Mexico. junk

Unneeded features

By 

from Fort myers

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Bought recently no book provided. The silverware holder is poorly designed, rack for wine glasses is a waste. Dish racks feel cheap and don't slide as good as previous washer. I would have been better off repairing my five year old kitchen aid.

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I love this dishwasher. It is so quiet and does a great job cleaning the dishes. The stainless steel front is so easy to clean. There must be different types of stainless steel and this one is the best. Absolutely no complaints about this dishwasher. A really great deal.

    Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

    I have had this DW about 2 months now and it works great. It is quiet and efficient. The only problem with any unclean dishes was how they were loaded which is a user error. Occasionally peanut butter is not completely removed but that is expected in this household! I recommend this DW highly.

      rack design needs improvement

      By 

      from Beverly, MA

      Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

      rack design is not very user friendly. Difficult to maximize top shelf with glasses and cups. Lose lots of space loading mixing/serving bowls.
