Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dishwasher Only want a kitchenaid dishwasher; it's the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance My home warranty company suggested this one as a replacement. So far I love it and the 3rd rack is very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best This model dishwasher seems to have answered and fixed all the issues I have had with all the other dishwashers I have owned. Shelving issues, noise issues, door issues, all gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Love this dishwasher, I don't know why I waited so long to purchase a new one. This dishwasher cleans efficiently. THe light feature is cute but I barely get to admire it because it automatically comes on after the wash is done and automatically shuts off. There are a number of colors that appear on the door throughout the wash cycle however I was not completely sure what each color meant. Blue is for washing, red I assume is for drying and white I understand now that the wash cycle is done. Overall an excellent addition to our kitchen

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Washes dishes great, but why no light with window? We purchased this dishwasher about two weeks ago. It is as wonderful as described and as you probably saw in the showroom. IT's the top of the line and the most expensive model, so you've probably got a lot of expectations. So did we. We sprung for having the lights inside, the window in the door, the pot scrubber, the bottle washers, etc. And it does a bang up job of cleaning dishes. But, a few things that weren't thought of (and that makes how much we paid for it annoying): 1) there's lights and a window, but the lights can't be manually turned on and they don't come on during washing. What's the point of that? There's a window but I can't see inside. Why did you put a window for me to look through? Yes, the light comes on at the end of the wash for about ten minutes. Nice, but since it takes the dishwasher about 3 hours to do a load of dishes, I'm not around to see the light come on. Not the most well thought out approach. Instead, kitchenaid, add a button like on the oven so i can turn the lights on and off at my leisure. let us see how your cool new appliance works. 2) the tines in the lower rack point straight up (that seems normal, right?) but, dinner plates usually need to lean back or else they fall over. So, i've manually bent the tines to keep the dinner plates from falling all over themselves. The bottom rack looks haphazard and i'm afraid i'll break the rack. Anyhow, seems easy enough to just manufacture the rack to accommodate dinner plates. 3) if you open the dishwasher during a cycle to add a dish, you have to press START then shut the door. IT doesn't start back up automatically. (grrr...) Overall, cleans and dries dishes great. I probably would have bought a cheaper model in kitchenaid and not paid for the cool new features because not everything was fully thought out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just fabulous!!! I purchased this dishwasher for my new home and it is just fabulous. Aside from how great it looks in my kitchen, it is also the quietest dishwasher ever. I am living all the amazing features especially bottle cleaners in the top rack. I can't say enough good things about this appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cleaner We replaced another Kitchen Aid with this unit. We preferred the old top mounted utensil holder to the new basket holder on the bottom rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best IN ANY PRICE RANGE We love the ball bearing slides,machine quietness,window,and over all quality of this machine.The led interior lighting is a nice touch also.Dishes look the best ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Functional Silent superb cleaning of anything in the dishwasher. The window is even fun to look at when the dishwasher is not running. The instructions say it requires a rinse aid for everything to dry well. That's correct--with added rinse aid, everything, including all plastic, is perfectly dry at the end of the cycle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top of the Line KitchenAid Dishwasher We've tried Several Cycles on this dishwasher. Pro Cycle with Pro Heat and the dishes are not dry unless you wait an hour before opening the Door. It does the same thing on all cycles. When you do open it, there is water all over the window. It is extremely quiet. You cannot even hear that it's running. The Window is just a gimmick and has no functional value. The LED Lights are very bright.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy with this dishwasher The third tray/cutlery tray is too shallow to wash spoons (spoons that put on their side)or anything that is bigger than 1 and 1/4 inch tall, and on the center of tray, you can't even put anything bigger than 3/4 inch because the small wash arm is in the way. Also the tine on the tray is too short, so that can't hold and separate spoons or forks. The cutlery basket also not good to use, as the little holes can't fit my soup spoons' handle. So it is useless too me. It takes me double the time to load the dishes. And it takes forever to finish washing (more than 2 hours without drying function and more than 3 hours with drying), even after almost 1 hour of drying by use both heat and pro dry, the dishes only 85% dry. I suspect there is something wrong with this machine because I did not hear the fan blowing, there was no sound during the drying and was noisy during washing (noisier than the Asko I had last). I am being very patience with this new dishwasher as I understand it might take awhile to get use too. But so far, this is the only dishwasher I have ever hate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Dishwaser This is a very nice, quiet dishwasher. A few words of caution: * The owner's manual doesn't exist. * The dishwasher makes a rapid clicking sound during the first cycle. The lack of an owner's manual is my biggest concern.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cleans well, but doesn't close very easily First, the dishwasher cleans well. That is the main thing in a dishwasher, right? It's quiet and, frankly, looks good. However, it does not shut well. The door seems to be slightly off so that it catches on one side as we try to close it. We'll be contacting Kitchenaid about this, since when you pay this much for a machine you should get a machine that is in completely good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective Machine I bought this dishwasher three weeks ago and I'm extremely glad I did. I no longer have to wash my dishes by hand before putting them in the dishwasher. Every item comes out clean. I also use to wash my utensils by hand, because they would touch and rust in my old dishwasher. I now use the utensil holder in this new machine and it's like magic. The instructions are very easy to follow. Everything is explained in plain English and pictures. A bit expensive for a dishwasher but works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid with excellent cleaning power I have just upgraded to this dishwasher from a Kenmore Elite model I've had for about 10 years. This Kitchenaid model is miles above what I had always thought was a pretty good dishwasher. It is solidly made, impressive looking, and due to some pretty innovative internal action, cleans my dishes without leaving residue or spots. I thought my old dishwasher was quiet, but this is so quiet, I've had to have a talk with my family about looking for the indicator light before opening it. They have interrupted my washing cycle several times because they just didn't hear a sound or feel any vibration. This feels solid, looks amazing and cleans great. What more could a girl ask for? This is the dishwasher of my dreams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for washing cups, bottles and wineglasses! I have a baby and a toddler so we go through a lot of cups and bottles. This washer is specifically designed to address those types of dishes so it works great. The cycles can take a long time if you start stacking up special functions like power dry, bottle wash, etc., but they dishes are always super clean and I never have to go back over them with a manual wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Super quiet and outstanding options for cleaning dishes. I don't know why I put up with a builders grade dishwasher for the last 10 years. This is sooooooo quiet can barely hear it when it is running

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wonderful idea, poor execution My feedback is based on this model only. KitchenAid dishwashers are functionally the best around. Quiet and dependable. I built a new home and decided to indulge myself with a dishwasher with a window. Who wouldn't want to see the mysterious cleaning process, especially the kids. It would be like a 2 hour babysitters. Well, I'm sad to report the light doesn't stay on during the wash cycle. Even though it's an efficient LED light, some engineer decided to only have it go on AFTER the cycle is complete. Totally stupid. Everyone that comes over talks about the window and wants to see the inside while it's washing. Flashlights are the only way. Bottom line, great idea, horrible, not think customer execution. Save your money and pass on this model. Sorry KitchenAid - you failed on a great idea!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Supper Quite/Supper cleaning The machine is supper quire with great features with the dishes come our supper clean. The product I got has a fault the control panel goes out once the load is done and the only way to get it back is to turn the house power on and off. They are trying to fix it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No light during wash.... Thanks for the earlier review. I wanted the dishwasher with the light to stay on. I will wait and hope that they make the light stay on. During the entire wash..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent all around Dishwasher! My wife and I have had this dishwasher for a week now and it is without question the quietest most beautiful and best cleaning dishwasher we have ever owned in over 30 years. I would have given this dishwasher 5 Stars if it were not for the fact that I was very disappointed about one factor. This dishwasher has a window (which is very unique among other dishwashers on the market). This model also has an internal light. The thing that disappointed me was the internel light does not stay lit while the dishwasher is washing the dishes. The way I look at it is why have a window if you cannot see what is going on inside the dishwasher while it is running. This makes the window for looks ONLY. The window servers no other purpose. I am very disappointed in this aspect of this amazing dishwasher. Why Kitchenaid did not have the internal light stay lit while it is running is beyond me OR, why didn't they make it n option is also beyond me. In the description of this model, they make it seem like the light stays lit while the dishwasher is running. This is very deceiving and misleading. Shame.
