Product Details

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!

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.

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

This dishwasher came in my new home. Although it is a standard size I was told it feels a lot smaller loading the dishwasher. Hooks in class have all broken and falling off and prongs not stay up in place

Kitchen Aid dishwasher Model KDTE334DSSO

By 

from Norton, MA

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

We purchased our Kitchen Aid dishwasher Model KDTE334DSSO in April of 2014. We bought it as part of a 4 piece Kitchen Aid Architect Series set. We also bought the 48 month extended warranty. After just over two years, the top rack of the dishwasher failed. The top rack will not slide out and we've found metal ball bearings in the dishwasher. Turns out this type of repair is not covered by the extended warranty and the estimate for parts & labor is almost half the cost of the dishwasher. Having to pay that much to repair a 2 yr. old dishwasher with an extended warranty is outrageous! This is not at all what I would expect from Kitchen Aid brand. And to add to the frustration, the repair parts are back ordered. That tells me that I'm not the only one with top rack problems! I'm very disappointed with this purchase! A beautiful, quiet dishwasher is only a great consumer item if it stands the test of time. Two years would be pitiful for even a low end dishwasher, which this is not priced as! I would not recommend this appliance!!

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

This is our 3rd purchase of a Kitchenaid dishwasher. Having recently moved into a new home there was no question as to the make of our dishwasher. The dependability, functionality, durability and the quiet operation are unsurpassed. This is the only dishwasher I would ever purchase.

New dishwashers suck

By 

from Stony Brook NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

But not this one. This is our fourth unit in 10 years. We have had a GE (came with house), a Bosch (didn't clean well), a new designer GE didn't dry plastics, didn't clean well and was prone to breaking down. Had this unit a month and so far only complaints are the excessively long cleaning times, (it seems all the new water saving green units are slow like this one, so only a handful of washers are faster). It seems that price wise, quality of cleaning, and quality of manufacture we finally got it right

arms do not spin

By 

from pittsburgh pa

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Have been using for a year, do not like to give bad reviews but I finally am going to say this dishwasher is really bad. It's quiet;maybe because the arms don't spin? I have to wash my dishes before I wash my dishes... very disappointed.

does not fully drain--foul smell

By 

from Elizabethtown, Pa

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

This dishwasher cleans dishes, but has had a foul smell from the beginning. There is an inch of water that doesn't fully drain. We had it serviced from the company from which we purchased and had it installed. We were told the water is supposed to be there.
Don't even try to get a real person on the phone. I tried five times and after the long wait time I was disconnected twice. Thought I'd try live chat and that has been disabled.
I'd expect better customer service for the price we paid for this dishwasher.
