The dishwasher ProWash option does a fine job getting our dishes clean. Haven't used the ProScrub or HeatDry options yet, except as a test. If we do the load at night, most everything except the tops of some cups, etc. are dry. If we open the door up soon after the ProWash cycle completes, there is more water to dry off. So, the extra hours of sitting after the load is finished seems to help dry the load. Plastic things, such as the silverware rack itself, still has water sitting on the flat areas so one has to be careful not to drip water on the floor when moving the silverware rack to the countertop when putting things away. Evidently plastic doesn't retain the heat so doesn't drip/dry easily in the closed dishwasher. But to save energy we prefer not to use the HeatDry option.

We don't find the top third rack useful. Hard to fit some knives with longer handles. The little "bumps" aren't very high - might be a better design to have some of different heights to rest things against. The rack area isn't deep enough to hold much - even our BBQ thongs or many spatulas and mixing spoons with a bit of a curve in the handle won't fit. We saw some models that had the third rack area divided into two pieces. That was a better design than one large rack on this model. One could use a half-rack and take the other side out. Then taller glasses, etc. could fit in the rack below on the side without the half-rack. Our only option is to take out the one large 3rd rack, which we did with the load last night so the wine glasses and our 10" Corning square skillet could fit without hitting the side wall nor washing arm.

We find odor problems if we keep the door closed between loads. We have started keeping the door ajar to keep it aired out so the odor doesn't bowl us over when we go to load additional dishes between loads.

The handles on our knives won't fit in the silverware slots so we took those off both sides of the silverware rack. A better design would be to have a silveware rack that would separate into two units or be two units. It takes up too much useful space now. Better design to be able to use one smaller rack on some loads so more pots and pans can be put in the leftover space.

The dishwasher is very quiet. We think it is the best feature. We've found work-arounds for the problems we noted above.

If we have the middle rack lowered down we can't load our 10 1/2" Corning Ware dishes without the sprayer arm hitting them.
If the middle rack is in the upper position, the 6 1/4" cereal bowl hits the top of the 3rd rack if placed in the center of the middle, the bowl's most logical place.

Various size wine glasses with stems hit the side of the dishwasher on the left side. The wine glass holders only hold 4 very narrow wine glasses or two red wine glasses.
Having the holder in the down position is good as you can rest more wine glasses against it so the base doesn't hit the side of the dishwasher when sliding the rack in/out. The dishwasher isn't real handy for washing stemmed wine glasses.

May be best to take into the store some of the things you expect to wash and see if they fit - before buying. It is flexible and hold a large load, the racks slide nicely and adjust easily, and it is quiet.

I purchased this dishwasher along with all my new home's Kitchenaid appliances, spending over twelve grand. The only thorn in my side has been the dishwasher. It hasn't worked right since the beginning and apparently, I didn't push hard enough at first when it didn't work properly because it was past the brief year warranty when I decided to stop dealing with the retailer I purchased it from and actually called Kitchenaid. After a non-productive conversation with that representative who basically told me I should be using the Affresh tabs once a month, sometimes two, to keep it running right.
I continued to contact my retailer who then finally replaced the chopper blade (he'd previously replaced the "controller")
But it's still not working right so I finally called Kitchenaid again because the retailer's repair guy is tired of fixing it. Kitchenaid (after 1 hr & 27 minutes on the phone - most of it on hold) the best they'd offer was to provide a part to "fix" it yet again. If this were my company and a product continued to malfunction/break within the first two years of it's lifetime, I would be so embarrassed and apologetic. I simply want my lemon of a dishwasher replaced with another one, same year, same model. I don't want to have to keep fixing it. Or like they offered... pay $288 for a warranty that would get me parts for another year (so I wouldn't have to allot over an hour of my time every few months that it stops working I guess!)
So disgusted with the company's lack of incentive to stand behind this product.

Cleans Well

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

It has taken awhile to get used to the longer time it takes to run a cycle however, we like the energy saving features. Dishes get clean as long as they are scraped and do not set in the dishwasher dirty for several days. After using it a few times we have a good handle on how to load it so dish surfaces are getting hit by the sprayer. Tall glasses and Canning Jars need to be loaded closer to the front of the washer on the upper rack. We are happy with this dishwasher.

"Innovative": A dishwasher that doesn't actually wash dishes

By 

from Los Gatos,Ca

Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Call me crazy but usually one expects a dishwasher to actually wash dishes. This one does not. We just had this installed two weeks ago to replace our 13 year old Bosch. I always rinse the dishes extremely well prior to putting them in the alleged dishwasher, but have yet to see it actually produce anything even remotely resembling clean dishes. There's literally bits of food on plates, glasses and flatware. So once this cabinet claiming to be a dishwasher is done wasting water and energy we take everything out and hand wash all of it. Good times. I will say it's incredibly quiet, because apparently washing dishes makes noise.
