Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple Dishwasher I purchased this unit three months ago everything works as expected. It is quiet and cleans great!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay but very long cycle times I bought this dishwasher a couple of weeks ago to replace a 1998 KitchenAid Advanta dishwasher. I'm disappointed with the new "energy efficient" dishwashers that have extremely long cycle times. We always pre-rinse our dishes and even then the shortest cycle time we've ever had was 2 hours. When we add sanirinse and ProDry options the cycle time is over 4.5 hours. It's using less water but I'd much prefer our old dishwasher that used more water but could finish a full cycle with sanirinse and dry in under 2 hours. The ProDry option also is not worth it in my opinion. The glassware comes out dry but any plastic components are still wet and there is a significant amount of water in the dishwasher that is on all of the racks and internal components. Our old dishwasher did a far better job of drying than the new one even when the old one wasn't using the heated dry option, just the standard air dry. Again I assume this is in the guise of energy efficiency. Sorry I realize all new dishwashers have to adhere to EnergyStar requirements but I feel there should be a compromise between performance and energy efficiency. There should be an option to select a less efficient mode to speed things up. Even the top-rack only mode only shaves about 7 minutes off the cycle time. The express wash mode doesn't allow for the SaniRinse option which is why I don't use that one but even then the manual says it takes an hour. On the plus side the dishwasher is extremely quiet and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does all that I hoped for! We were looking for a quiet, energy efficient dishwasher that gets the job done. It has exceeded our expectations and is also a very nice looking machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet Operation - Solid & Attractive Handle This Dishwasher is extremely quiet. I could not hear any noise and had to open it to make sure it was running! The handle does not take up much room in the front of the dishwasher and it is solid & secure. Very easy dishwasher to operate and my dishes are very clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money. This unit is quiet in operation and has several wash options, but other than that this is a piece of junk and I regret purchasing it. The racks are junk and didn't hold up at all. Being stainless steel it is a pain to keep clean, especially if you have children. Don't purchase it save your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful - as expected for the price - Been a week or so on this new dishwasher ? Love the quiet and positive feel ? We have to look at the light to see if it is on. Love the built in look ? Love how clean it gets stuff - Hate the top rack ? the real thin one ? Seems not to be good for anything ? we put silverware in the racks below ? We use the pint bar glasses as our regular drinking glasses ? they won?t fit on the top (middle) rack with the thin (highest) rack in place ? The top thin rack can be easily removed - Once we removed that rack, everything works well for loading ? like in our old Kitchenaid Totally love it ? (but recommend the top rack be removed).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchenaid Dishwasher Works wonderfully, even the top silverware rack. Extra quiet, you hardly know it's running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Serious Appliance You get what you pay for. This is by far the best dishwasher we have ever owned from a performance standpoint. It is beyond quiet; the only way you know it's on is by checking the operating lights. It really cleans courtesy of the multitude of jets it has on its three shelves, the back wall and the corners and the water temperature inside if so selected. The reason this is so important is that environmental nonsense has removed the cleaning power from dishwasher detergents, thus the dishwasher has to pick up the slack as chemicals no longer provide the cleaning power they used to. It therefore follows that lesser dishwashers either no longer do the job properly or the dishes need to be thoroughly "pre-rinsed", which defeats the purpose of a dishwasher in my opinion. All this comes at a price, which is the duration of most operating cycles...they can be up to four hours. Since it it so incredibly quiet it can easily be operated during sleeping hours without disturbing anyone. So if you're not into instant gratification and somewhat organized in your daily routine this is your dishwasher. This piece of equipment has surpassed our performance expectations! It is our fervent hope that this one will last longer than the Kitchenaid model KUPD02FRSS it replaces. It lasted only seven years or about 2,500 cycles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, Quiet, Quiet We've had this dishwasher for approximately 5 weeks as part of our kitchen renovation. It is the quietest dishwasher we have ever owned. I believe our new refrigerator (not a Kitchenaid) makes more noise. Dishes are clean every time and there are a lot of optional rack positions for odd sized components.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whisper Quiet Dishwasher is amazingly quiet, so much so you don't even know its running until it hits the drain cycle, and that isn't even loud. The plumber had a hard time knowing if it was running when he installed it to check everything. He commented that it was the quietest dishwasher he has installed, over any Bosch. Great dishwasher, long run time though, approaching two hours. The handle gives it the nice clean look, however, this leads to more watermarks on the face of the washer, which requires a little more frequent cleaning. Top controls are very simple and straight forward. Interior organization is great. Tall dishes don't work real well though if you use the top silverware rack. We usually just leave the top rack out unless we need it.
