Rated 5 out of 5 by from best dishwasher I've ever owned We have been more than happy with this dishwasher. It is so quiet that often times when it is running guests don't even realize it's in the middle of a cycle and open the door to load it! It cleans dishes without needing to pre-wash and the drying cycle is fantastic. When using the drying agent almost all our dishes come out completely dry. We have also used the top rack only feature to wash crystal and delicate glass and it works perfectly. Would highly recommend this dishwasher and the integrated panel with top buttons is just the icing on the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quiet and efficient It has a lot of options so you can adjust the interior to suit your dish-ware. Nice sturdy interior and door. Does a good job and is so quiet you don't know its running.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fatal flaw in pump design --> failure Have had this in place for just over a year (just in time for the warranty to expire). A great dishwasher in all respects, but I now realize it has a fatal (and inexcusable) flaw. Two tiny shards of glass made it through the coarse screen in the sump in the bottom to the circulation pump. The pump in turn had no means to prevent these shards from destroying the fine metal mesh screen and plastic workings of the pump impeller assembly. This seems to me a design flaw. The reality is sooner or later, however careful you are, something tiny, a glass chip or some other non-biodegradable object is going to make it into the dishwasher. The filters must not allow something to pass which can destroy the pump. This is a $200 part. What's worse is, unlike prior designs, if a glass breaks you have no way of knowing if you've picked up all the pieces. Prior designs exposed the impeller and fine screen right in the sump, accessible from the tub itself. Now, what are you supposed to do? Pull the dishwasher out and disassemble the pump to look for glass or other objects? I fear that I'm now forced to pay for the new pump and that this may not be the last time this happens. This is awful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved the ease of transition from our former Kitchen Aid I replaced a panel ready Kitchen Aid with this one and the ease of installation and panel fit was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the layout of the dishwasher. We bought this dishwasher because of the features. And could not be more pleased. I never realized how much I would like the light feature.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from leaves a film on glasses I have tried several dish detergents but a film is on my stemware that I cannot get off. Many times I have had to wash items that had supposedly been cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher We have had this dishwasher for two months and it cleans great and is extremely quiet compared to our old dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Keep Checking To Make Sure It Is On. It Is So Quiet! Perfect dishwasher. like the light on the inside. I like the basket for flatware with the separators. And the shelf above the top rack for little things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy, Happy! I bought my new dishwasher after my old one-also a Kitchen Aid-finally bit the dust-after 29 years!! I didn't need any recommendations after that length of time and only 1 repair in all those years. I knew what I was going to get again.
Date published: 2017-04-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher! We replaced our older Kitchenaid with this new one and enjoy the new, updated and improved model.
Date published: 2017-03-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can see clearly now! We bought this two months ago and our glasses are noticeably clearer than they were with our former premium dishwasher. It is so quiet sometimes we can't tell if it is even on. We also love the length and accessibility of the silverware compartment. Finally , the many ways you can adjust and convert it to accomadate different sizes of pots and such makes it usable in ways we have not experienced. Couldn't be happier with our Kitchen Aid dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Great This dishwasher is so quiet, I don't know it is on. It also seems to have some of those Keebler elves inside telling it the amount of dirt and scrubbing needed. Every load (light, medium, heavy) seems to come out perfectly. The cycle might take a little longer than I expected, but for the consistent cleaning results, it is worth it. Lastly, I really like how the inside is configured. I seem to find a really good spot for different shapes and sizes. And I love the silverware tray at the top. It is easy to use and, unlike when silverware is thrown into cup-size bins, fork tines and other pieces are clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design Purchased a month ago. Happy with all features except the drying cycle. I find lots of residual moisture when the cycle is done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely superb performance. I'm very happy with the exceptional performance and features of this dishwasher. My dishes are spotless and dry no matter what I throw in it. The interior light is great, the shallow top third drawer is super convenient for spatulas, large serving flatware and miscellaneous small, odd shaped things that might fall through the other two racks. It's very quiet which is wonderful, allowing me to keep entertaining and the guests don't hear it going. I highly recommend this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as ever This one replaced a 10 year old Kitchen Aid. That one was great and this one just improves on the theme. The interior light and silverware tray are nice additions. The control flexibility is nice. All around a fine product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Dishwasher I love this dishwasher, works wonderfully. I love the built in light so you can see your dishes. I love the adjustable rack, and I really love the third top rack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replace my Bosch with Kitchenaid When my Bosch died after 11 years, which I never cared for because the brackets on the rack system kept falling off and even the wheels. So I researched the KithenAids since I was happy with the one I had in my last home. I am very happy with it. First think you do is throw away all the extra baskets that are hanging on the racks, all they do is take away prime real estate for dishes, pots and pans. I love the top rack that holds knives chance of cutting yourself when unloading. Also nice is the utensil holder, it is on the side and large. Throw away the cover on it. The only reason it gets 4 and not 5 stars is that even after I raise the middle rack, I can't get my large cutting boards in, like it could in the Bosch. Cleans well, make sure you use the "pro clean & pro dry"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far very happy I've only used the dishwasher a few times but we've been very happy with it. I especially like the slide out try for utensils. The panel front is just beautiful. Lastly it is so quiet I forget whether I've turned it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KitchenAid Dishwasher Probably the best dishwasher I have had. It is quiet and cleans great! The interior design is well thought out and holds a lot. My only complaint is that the motor burned out in the first year. Everything was under warranty and was fixed within a 2 week period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Dishwasher I have ever had! I have had more expensive dishwashers, but this one performs the best and is the quitest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! All dishware is new again!! I am so happy with the dishwasher. It is silent, and cleans dishes perfectly! I packed my kitchen for a remodel, when I unpacked I washed everything in the dishwasher. I was amazed at how clean and brand new my glasses and dishes looked! The light inside illuminates for loading and unloading makes it so easy to see everything, and I feel like being in my kitchen and doing dishes is fun! I LOVE this dishwasher!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, But One Little Quirk Raises Energy Costs We bought this a month ago and it mostly works fine. It is very quiet, as expected, and it cleans. That is what you want from a dishwasher. There is one quirk. Twice now the door of the compartment holding the detergent has failed to open so that the dishes weren't cleaned and it had to be run again. The second time through, the door did open. I'm wondering if there's some trick to closing the door of which I am unaware. I think the price was way too high to get an appliance that does what it is supposed to do, almost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product, super quiet. Actually has way too many operating options, I wish I could buy a model with 1/3 the operations for less money. Really need to spend an hour with the instructions in front of it and then it's fine.
