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!

Very Quiet

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I never knew my husband started to use the machine as I got home from work because it was so quiet in the kitchen. I love the 3rd rack to put knives and other sharp utensils. Spacious! Just make sure you have the stainless wipes because when the person who installed my machine took out the plastic cover, it made marks.

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I have only had this for a few weeks but I am so pleased with it. Our last dishwasher was so noisy, I hated to use it. The Kitchen Aid is really nice. It is soooo quiet, I am glad for the lights that let me know it is on. Now I can listen to the radio even with the dishwasher on.

Very Quiet

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

The installation instructions were complete and easy to follow. The dishwasher is very quiet while operating and the indicator lights are easy to see. We just scrape the large food scraps off and load the dishwasher. The third rack is great for small items like knives, wire whips, and plastic measuring cups.

Solid construction, unbelievably quiet, and large capacity. I don't know how they do it, but it seems as though I am able to load more dishes into this machine than the old Kenmore it replaced.

Nice appliance

Comments about KitchenAid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Love it except that the top rack is too close to the silverware tray. Would like it to be adjustable so that if one has tall glasses or water bottles it could be lowered.
