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!

A Mixed Bag

By

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

The dish racks are not well designed. Our dishes don't fit well--they don't stand up straight. The bottom rack doesn't accommodate bowls and pots very well. The top rack for flatware is a really nice feature. Haven't used the pot scrubber yet. Machine is very quiet; hardly hear it running.

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

We bought this dishwasher a month ago and are pleased with the cleaning power this machine has. We needed a workhorse to clean dishes twice per day for our large family. So far, so good. The third shelf is a nice touch. We are definitely pleased with this product.

I bought this dishwasher a month ago to replace a 6 year old Whirlpool dishwasher. This dishwasher is so quiet! I can't believe I can talk and hear people again while it is running! It also cleans the dishes really well.

Quiet like a cat's purr

By 

from Apple Valley, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Purchased this dishwasher 2 months ago. It replaced our Kitchenaid dishwasher that was like the "Energizer Bunny". It kept going and going and going for 16 years without any service calls. Felt I had to stick with the "Kitchenaid". We like the way the racks are laid out. Dishes, etc. are easy to load and organize. Seems to be a unique place for everything to fit. It is also surprisingly quiet. A big plus! Wouldn't have a problem sleeping with it in the same room.
