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!

We needed to replace our old dishwasher, and we are really happy we choose Kitchen Aid. It was a little more than we planned on spending, but well worth it.

I love the dishwasher. When done, the dishes look like they are brand new. The dishwasher is so quiet I have to bend down and listen to it to make sure it is running. I am so glad I purchased this product. I will never be disappointed with it.

OK Dishwasher

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

This unit replaced a 17-year old GE that was cleaning fine, but the dirt sensor was no longer active and the opening of the cover for the detergent was no longer reliable and parts were no longer available. The design for stacking dishes in the new unit has taken a few steps backward. It is nice to have the third level for larger flat items. However, the lower level is set so that large dishes leave a space of ~1.5 inches from the edge of the dish to the edge of the rack. This is wasted space that causes dinner plates to actually touch smaller plates. The size of the cutlery holder is twice that of the previous one. This lets the spray get to the cutlery better, but it also takes up twice as much space. Also, it only fits on the right side and cannot be placed on the left side. That is OK if your sink is on the right, but if it is on the left as ours is, it makes it difficult to reach over to place cutlery in. There is half as much space for wine glasses. We use Heated Drying. The old GE always left some water in glasses that did not have a flat bottom. Thought this new one would be better. Completely wrong. Most items on top shelf have their bottoms [i.e., top as inserted as they are upside down] still wet at end of cycle. Even the rack controls to lift and lower the second rack have indentations that collect water and are not dry at end of cycle. The cleaning seems adequate, although we have not tried all the cycles. It seems KitchenAid has sacrificed utility for ecological and sound concerns instead of getting engineers to achieve both. Utility should be the prime consideration and it is not in this unit. It is nice to now have a stainless steel interior. This unit has clean exterior lines as it is without a handlebar that would just result in people bumping into it in a tight kitchen.

My home office is an alcove off the kitchen, so I sit 15 feet away from the dishwasher. This used to be a big annoyance, but now I can not really even hear when the dishwasher is running. The dishes look better, too!
