Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage. Waste of money and time. Purchased this three years ago. Never did a good job washing dishes. After 6 months, the control panel went out but got it repaired under warranty. After 3 years, replaced water valve. Now it leaks in the tub. Replaced that. Still leaks. Seems there are small holes in the stainless steel tub where it meets the tub gasket. I've given up and will never purchase a KitchenAid product ever again. $900 wasted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Quiet! We replaced our original Kitchen Made DW with this's so quiet, which was a priority on my list. The only way I know it's running is by the small indicator light. Cleans beautifully, the racks slide in and out easily as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean well and quite Good dishwasher with the ability to use a upper tray for silverware (that's what we use) or the busket at the bottom tray. Very quite, reliable and clean the dishes well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 service calls in the first year The importance of this review is that it is not about initial quality or features. It is about what to expect over time. We are a large family that works our appliances hard. Somedays the dishwasher runs 3+ loads. Dishwashers and washing machines are like air to us. So when there is an issue it hits us hard. After 10+ years of trouble free service to the home I opted to replace our bottom of the line noisy old dishwasher. And when I did I went all the way, top of the line, ultra quiet, three rack stainless steel inside and out. My thoughts were wow this is really something and we were all very excited. The first thing to be removed was the third rack at the top. With this in place you can just never get it all to fit right, unless it is a photograph for a marketing picture. If you really use your washer then don't make this a purchasing decision. The good news is it comes right out no problem making it a simple waste of money. Then the service calls begin. The basics of this have been for not draining. After the second service call I asked for the entire machine to be replaced as I have 0 interest in paying for multiple service calls per year. We all know what the response to this was, yeah... right... The result of this is of course is we will keep patching it up till your high end dishwasher is out of warranty and you can start paying from there. Since we are now out of warranty I have only had 1 issue which was the dishwasher does not clean the dishes. The dishes getting clean in a consistent and reliable manner is a purchasing decision. That was related to the spray arms being clogged with food particles. Unfortunately these cannot be opened for easy cleaning but after several hours I was successful in getting the various plugs removed. On the plus side this machine is in fact ultra quiet, you literally cannot hear it run if there is any background noise at all. I also need to state that when this machine is working it does clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs so quiet When we purchased our dishwasher, we had no idea how quiet it was going to be. Our house is a open concept and was worried about the noise. You can't hear it run and it cleans amazing. Way beyond our expectatuons

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dish Washer I love this machine. It is the quietest dishwasher I have ever had. The hidden controls have a lot of features but I basically use the automatic wash with the heat. It is simple to use and a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher Finally a good dishwasher that cleans. Loving the third rack and the integrated touch control. The pro wash cycle really tackles the food residue and stains well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super quiet, some good options for flexible use. We put this dishwasher in, as a part of our Kitchen remodel. The ask was primarily for something quiet and efficient. This dishwasher met both objectives. The top shelf is adjustable, which allows for the use of another upper tray, which enables washing of things like chopsticks, or utensils that don't seem to fit elsewhere easily. The only item I would suggest as a drawback though, having the adjustable shelf is a struggle for the majority of our dinner dishes being too high - that means we often don't have the capability to put the third shelf in the unit. So most times now, we don't both moving it. This would be a tough ask to fix, being the size of the internal unit doesn't give you much room to do much else. The drawer is a great idea, doesn't always work in practice though. It is easy enough to clean, and to be honest, when its running - without checking the status light, you sometimes don't even realize its operating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic We have extremely hard water here in Arizona, yet my dishes always come out clean and sparkling. My wife and kids seem to like letting food harden on the dishes, but thi dishwasher still gets the job done. I have a family of 6 and we are able to fit the day's dishes in this model and run it once a day. Unless, of course, the kids try using a different glass every time they get a drink. One thing to note is be careful of any dishes getting broken when taking them out or putting them in. A dish broke on our counter top while taking it out of the dishwasher and a piece of the dish got caught in the dishwashers drain. I could not find it and had to call a service man.
