I bought this Kitchen Aid dishwasher because my last K.A lasted 15 years. I had reservations after reading all on the online reviews of many brands. Seems like they all have major flaws.So, here's the story.

Pros:
-This dishwasher cleans VERY well. I never realized how poorly my old one cleaned til I bought this! It has even removed hard water deposits on the bottom of glasses that I had given up on.
-Despite some reviews, it dries well with the dyer mode on . It will dry dishes overnight without the use of the dry cycle as well.
-I did not like the idea of having to clean a filter, but the only K.A dishwasher with a self cleaning filter did not fit in my space due to the large handle. But, since I rinse dishes first, I have found almost no food residue in the filter in a month's usage.
-The unit is exceptionally quiet.
-I like having the small lights on the front panel that tell you where you are in the cycle, and when it is finished. You cannot tell because it is so quiet.
- It's flat front, without a handle, fits in well. Contemporary without looking industrial.

Cons:
-The loading frustrates me, as it does not hold as much as my old one
-the top third shelf is useless. There are no real holders for silverware and it is too shallow for anything other than a flat spatula. Silverware slides around.
-The regular middle shelf won't hold my coffee pot (normal drip size pot) because the top hits the upper 3rd narrow shelf. -This middle shelf can be lowered, but then the spray arm hits my dinner plates. -The middles shelf has spots for bowls, but my smaller bowls are too small for the spacing, and fall over.
-The silverware holder has a removable top designed to keep your silverware from nesting or banging into each other. Great idea, except my knives and forks only fit in 1 of every 3 slots. For large loads I will have to remove the top spacer.

So, why did I rate this a 4? Because it cleans amazingly well, dries, no smells (as mentioned in many other brand reviews),
looks clean and streamlined, and I assume the loading process is a learning curve that I will adjust to.

Suggestion: bring your dishes and plates when looking at a dishwasher in person, to determine what fits. I read this online and it was very helpful when I tried to see if my dishes it. Some brands didn't fit
my glasses on the top shelf!

I don't have any of the problems I've read about regarding cleaning, drying etc. This dishwasher does a wonderful job cleaning and drying and is phenomenally quiet! However, since the 1st 2 weeks of usage 3 mths ago I have had issues with the door not shutting. I have called my contractor back 3 times after going weeks without using it. Sometimes it will still run (loudly)when I know it's not shut completely and 2 weeks ago it actually popped open mid cycle. Monday my contractor came again and it shut completely, but I had a video to show him how I had to push the door & hold it for it to run quietly and open when I let go. He suggested I look on-line for similar complaints. I've been adding dishes since Monday when it shut correctly and went to run it last night only for it to NOT shut AGAIN! I had to take EVERYTHING out & wash it by hand. Today, it is shutting completely but I am afraid to fill it up again. I am going insane with this dishwasher! So, here I am and I see other people have had this same issue-HELP!

Nice Looking; Poor Excuse for a Dishwasher; Do NOT buy!

By 

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Skip this poorly designed unit. It is the worst dishwasher that we have owned in over 40 years. Dishwashers have been around for half a century and you would think one could build on what has come before. First the positives: it has a sleek exterior, it has a stainless steel interior, it cleans pre-rinsed dishes, it has a third shelf whose height is just a little too small to make it really useful, it has a heated drying cycle that we always use and it's quiet. Now the negatives: It takes twice as long for a cycle as our 17-year-old GE took. We were in the insurance restoration business for a while – thus, we never leave the house while a dishwasher, washing machine or dryer is on [and you shouldn't either], so this is a nuisance. The supports for dishes and glasses are poorly thought out [duh, didn't I say dishwashers have been around for >50 years]. The diagram in the manual shows many dishes, BUT that is the figment of somebody's imagination. If you have any dishes that are not completely flat, such as soup dishes, etc. you are in really big trouble. In fact, whatever water savings are touted by KitchenAid, we are making more washes with fewer dishes each time than previously. The lower rack has dishes hitting each other despite our trying different configurations of dishes. We are in mortal fear of putting in our fine china. The cutlery rack is very large and is a single piece so one can't leave half of it out of the dishwasher. Also, the plastic parts of this rack are too wide so even though it fits on the lower rack it holds water as you will see when you take it out of the dishwasher and the water drips on your floor and counter! The device to hold wine glasses can only accommodate 4 and again not well. The 2nd rack that holds glasses, etc. has a configuration that also is poorly designed for holding glasses. One glass already broke resulting in our spacing them further apart, again reducing load capacity. KitchenAid won't let me go on longer ---

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I'm just starting my third year with this machine and it's been all day hill from hitting the three year mark. I've had problems with it leaking one cycle and then not the next. Two days having it not run at all. And in the past 3 months I have NOT gone a cycle when there wasn't at least 3 items did not clean. And I'm not talking a little mark - I'm talking water didn't even hit this item. NO I don't overload and I run my machine EVERY night so no need to think it was caked on dishes. I also pre rinse my dishes!! MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

This dishwasher soars above our previous dishwasher of a different maker. That dishwasher only lasted 11 months. We only run the washer 3 times a week so the one that was replaced was very cheaply made.

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher to replace my Samsung model. And, I'm highly impressed!
This model holds more than my last one. It's easier to program. I love the top rack that makes it easier to place knives and cooking utensils. And, it's so quiet that you wouldn't know it's even on.

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I love the third rack! I have a 4 year old and always have lots of kids and such and the third rack is wonderful. The upper rack is a cinch to lower and the filter is easy to remove and clean. I was additionally please with the quietness of it actually cleaning the dishes. You can barely hear it!

The cycles are long but the results are worth the wait. i don't like the third rack in the top. It needed to be removed and put somewhere when any stemware is loaded.
