Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 2 years Bought this in May of 2015 based on reviews and salesman recommendation. It was somewhat difficult to install and despite leg adjustments etc the top rack always rolled out on top of you when loading and unloading. Other reviewers mentioned this as well. Well, it worked OK until this month, then the motor went out and the repairman said the control panel was not acting right, so he recommended we just junk the thing. Expensive piece of junk. Never buying KitchAid again, no warranty after 1 year unless you purchase extended warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! My wife and i are extremely pleased with this washer so far .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed We had to wait a month to use dishwasher after installation because of a bad pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking! I was shocked at how quiet it is. Never had one this quiet. Dishes are very clean. Easy to load and holds a lot of dishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Quiet We Hardly Know That It’s On We bought our KitchenAid Architect II Series dishwasher a couple of years ago and couldn’t be happier. This dishwasher is functionally rich with stylish clean lines. Most importantly, it is so quiet, we hardly know that it’s on. It has been completely problem free. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great While it Worked From a functional standpoint the dishwasher was great, dishes cam out clean, was quiet, no issues there. From a quality standpoint, it was very poor. Control panel went out less than a year in, then after just 3 years, it stopped working and I had to buy a new dishwasher since it was out of warranty and the Kitchenaid customer service rep told me it would cost $411 to fix with a tech visit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What a pain I have always loved KitchenAid dishwashers but this one is driving me crazy. If you do not clean your dishes before you put them in the dishwasher, bits of food get caught in the water sprayers and you have to remove the bits hopefully with needles or something that fits in the small holes. And the parts do not come a part to get them cleaned out. And never leave a drop of paper on the dishes for the paper will also clog up the water sprayers and you have a hard time cleaning them out, if you can clean them at all This is true for the top and bottom sprayers. I went through the manual to see how to take apart the sprayers to clean them, but no information is available. I have never had this problem with dishwashers. Pleadr respond

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked great at first but didn't last long This dishwasher looked and sounded great when I first purchased it in Dec. 2014 at Lowe's. It worked great for about 2 years, and then the dishes started coming out dirty, no matter what. I clean the filters and do all the right things to fix it, but no good. Finally dishes aren't even being washed anymore, so I call a service company. They say pump and motor need replacement. That's not good for a dishwasher under 3 years old. My grandma has one from the 1970s that still runs good. I will read reviews more thoroughly next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice product I've had this dishwasher for a couple weeks. It's very quiet and seems to do a good job on the dishes. Looks good too.
Date published: 2017-02-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Dishwasher I have ever owned Takes 1.5 hours or more to give me dirty dishes. Silverware is dirty, wine glasses are dirty. And then there is the cycle that runs for over two hours. How is that energy efficient? Installed before we arrived in a new condo. Awful.
