KitchenAid Architect Series II Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher - KDTE404DSS

Features:

  • ProWash™ Cycle
    Determines the appropriate cycle for washing dishes and makes real-time adjustments for the best cleaning performance.
  • ProScrub Trio Option
    Provides 50% more coverage with targeted wash action. In addition to the 40 spray jets at the back of the dishwasher, you get two concentrated spray zones in the upper rack to clean deeper or oddly shaped items.
  • ProScrub Option
    Helps eliminate soaking or pre-scrubbing with 40 targeted spray jets that help remove stubborn messes like seared or baked-on foods.
  • Concealed Controls
    Are located on top of the dishwasher door, giving the front of the dishwasher clean, uninterrupted lines that helps you match other stainless steel appliances.
  • Whisper Quiet® System at 42 dBA
    Offers premium sound insulation that makes it convenient to operate day or night, including when you entertain.
  • SatinGlide® Max Upper Rack
    Creates a smooth, premium feeling when pulling out the upper rack, particularly with heavy loads. Adjusters make it easy to raise or lower the rack while the rails help keep the rack solidly on track.
  • Fold-Down Shelf with Stemware Holders
    Provides extra room in the upper rack to hold additional cups, wine glasses, or long items such as utensils and spatulas.
  • Fold-Down Tines in the Lower Rack
    Help improve cleaning performance by allowing one row of tines to adjust in one of three positions so water can clean inside deep or wide dishes.
  • Sliding Tines in the Lower Rack
    Allow you to adjust the space between rows of tines to fit a variety of deep or narrow dishes.
  • Culinary Caddy Utensil Basket
    Helps provide extra space for tall utensils such as whisks and spatulas, helping to maximize the usable space in the lower rack

I just recently purchased this dishwasher to replace a 19 yr old Kitchen Aid. My old one never needed 1 service call in all those years, but I decided to replace to avoid any future problems. My new one is awesome!!! It does a terrific job cleaning the dishes, glasses and dirty pots and pans. And I can't get over how quiet it is! I have to put my ear next to it to know it is running. My only complaint is that I wish I could stack a few more plates in the lower rack. I feel like I lost a little bit of space with the new configuration. Maybe I will get better at loading with time. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars.

Just got this dishwasher and am VERY disappointed. I use the Cascade packet and rinse aid that came with this dishwasher and rinse my dishes and silverware off before putting them in, but every time I use it, whether on Normal or ProWash cycle, the dishes come out with bits of food stuck to them and the silverware comes out tremendously spotted and also with little bits of food on them. Should not be like this and should not have to have a brand new dishwasher serviced. Would not recommend this dishwasher at all. I've attached 3 photos of silverware just "cleaned" in this dishwasher. Clearly subpar, unacceptable performance from a new dishwasher!

Extraordinarily quiet!

By 

from Central New Jersey

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Very quiet while running. Sometimes i need to put my ear to the door to ensure it is. Interior is plastic - top and bottom racks seem sturdy but the dishwasher wrack (top shelf) seems a little flimsy. My entire flatware set won't fit up there, but it is good overflow.

2 cons to this dishwasher: 1) Seems the dishwasher runs for hours. I've never actually timed the cycles but they seem to be about 90 minutes for a "normal" run. Even the light cycle is almost an hour.
2) The stainless steel front is a bear to keep clean!

Dishes are very clean when they come out and that is both for rinsed plates and non rinsed plates

Other than that, i would recommend this product

HORRIBLE DISHWASHER

By 

from Santa Monica, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I would NOT recommend this dishwasher to anyone. The digital buttons on the door constantly stop working.
In the short time I've had this, (2 years), the door has been replace twice, & I have had 5 service calls. With what I have spent on service calls, that's half the cost of the unit! The customer service dept. is awful. They give lip service & that is all.
Don't waste your money. Buy any other brand of a dishwasher than Kitchenaid. They used to build great products, but not anymore.

Quietest Dishwasher I have ever owned

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I've been using this dishwasher for 2 months and still can't get over how quiet it is. Occasionally I forget that I turned it on and open it to add something only to realize that it is mid-cycle. My dishes are clean, it's noiseless, what more could I want?

Good when it works but complete motor failure in 2 years

By 

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Purchased in June 2014 and initially loved the performance and low noise of the unit - sometimes when it ran you couldn't even tell! However, recently the performance started to degrade to the point that it isn't washing dishes at all. After speaking to Kitchenaid I was informed that it was a motor failure and that since it was past the 1 year warranty I would need to incur all costs, no flexibility or customer assistance at all. As a result I cannot justify recommending this unit to anyone - why pay more for something that breaks in two years?

Works well, but we purchased it only one month ago.

By 

from Bloomington, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

The best review of any appliance is after at least one year's usage. Generally speaking, most appliances will work fairly well during the manufacturer's one year warranty period. Any time thereafter, expectations are highly questionable, irrespective of the original purchase price of the appliance. New buyers should seriously consider purchasing an extended warranty agreement on these types of purchases because most new technology today is surely to break down more frequently after the warranty period and/or require replacement more quickly!

We remodeled and bought all new appliances. It was recommended by the salesman where we bought everything. He said it was very efficient and very quiet. He was right, I love that you can't even tell when it is running!

Great dishwasher.

By 

from Montrea, QC

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Silent, efficient, I could not live without it. However I should give it 4.5 stars. The top drawer rail is a bit flimsy. The system has little metal balls that went all over the place when got "broken" and as a consequence the drawer does not open completely anymore unless forced. Other than that, it works great.

Well. I purchased this item a little over a year ago. So far, it works fine but I don't like the fact that several pieces of the rack's are either coming loose or broken.
