Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet if you need quiet Quiet is what I needed and quier is what I got. Satisfied, yet I had to purchase many features that I didn't need in order to get the quietest model. KitchenAid models in previous years didn't require you to do that. I kept the culinary basket out of a model that I purchased over 10 years ago and am using it with my new model, because it fits, is constructed better and holds the utensils in a better position for cleaning then the one that came with this model. Food grinders are apparently a thing of the past in upper end dishwashers, these new models use filtration to save on insulation material that was required to keep the food grinders quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quiet beyond quiet! Replaced a GE Triton. What a difference!!!! In comparison, the GE is loud, dirty, and terrible. The Kitchenaid can barely be heard when the room is quiet and I am standing right next to it. And, it cleans superbly! The GE disturbed our listening to the TV which is in the next room. We have oversized plates. Most racks cannot handle them. But this dishwasher's rack adjustments and spacings are such that our oversized dishes fit very well. I especially like the covers on the silverware basket that separate the utensiles. And, the third rack comes in very handy for flat items! May cost more but I think the value is certainly there. Will never buy the other brand again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remodeling replacement dishwasher performs even better! I purchased a Kitchen Aid dishwasher 3 years ago and loved it! This year we remodeled and chose Kitchen Aid appliances based on that dishwashers' performance. We are not disappointed! The new dishwasher in stainless is even better than it's white predecessor! it is so quiet I can only determine it is running by the indicator light. The additional features of a "one hour wash" and "top rack only" fit our lifestyle very well. The additional top rack makes cleaning those small items and knives safe, and the adjustable glass shelf is even easier to use than the last one. Great dishwasher!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leaves my dishes very clean I used it once with a gel detergent and no Rinseaid and the results were poor. I talked to the sales person and he insisted I use Cascade and put in a RinseAid which I finally did and my dishes are squeaky clean now. I like the final results but don't like having to use another product to ensure that my dishes are clean. I have only had this approximately 1.5 months but it does a good job and so far I am happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and efficient dishwasher I have had this Kitchenaid dishwasher for 6 months and it works effectively and quietly. I was surprised when I did my first load of dishes because I thought it wasn't working it was so quiet. My former dishwasher was so noisy that you couldn't hold a conversation in the kitchen. My dishes, glasses, and cutlery are sparkling clean with no spots. I like the cutlery tray which helps to organize the cutlery when I take them out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We shopped a lot for this dishwasher. This dishwasher is great. Very quiet, great features and really cleans everything that we put in it. It has more room in it than the others we looked at. Our last Kitchen Aid was still working after 18 years. The racks were starting to rust a little probally from the hard water we have. Other than that we never ever had a service call for it. Our friends are very impressed with this new one. Thanks for doing such great job on this one. Ron And Debbie

Rated 1 out of 5 by from it's nothing but trouble. I bought this dishwasher over 2 years ago and it's been nothing but trouble. Initially it worked well for two months, then the dishes started to come out dirty. Then the top rack holders broke. Now it has been stopping in the middle of the cycle and turns off. The soap dispenser does not open up. It is quiet, but doesn't work. I have to repeat the cycle several time to finish one cycle. My dishes sometimes take 3-4 turns to get cleaned and finish the cycle. I paid so much for this unit and it seems like money went down the drain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product meets and exceeds all expectations for a good quiet dishwasher. Absolutely love this unit. I chose it over the BOSCH! A key feature was the heating elements, pro wash cycles AND the 3rd special utensil tray. However, the item was installed with a DENTED top, not visible under the insulation wrap. Thus, the special utensil tray would not slide in or out. Appliance store could not figure it out...thought wrong spray arm had been installed at factory. We insisted on a new unit and in removing the first one, technician noted under insullation wrap top was dented in, thus dropping down the ceiling of the dishweasher spray arm and obstructing the utensil tray. Not sure if factory or store quality issue...but definitely a disappointment and delay in project completion. Thank You.
