Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped Working After 2 Years Bought this dishwasher in August 2014. It matched our appliance and worked well for two years. As others have mentioned, the unit started having poor water flow and leaving food on dishes. Eventually a film developed in the bottom and the detergent would no longer dissolve leaving a big mess. Over the past year we had the unit serviced twice and paid almost $400. It's August 2017 now and the dishwasher has stopped working again. The model looks great and is super quiet, but NOT RELIABLE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Performance We purchased this dishwasher in November 2015 and expected it to last for many years. We were impressed with how quiet it was and it cleaned well for about a year. Over the last 9 months the dishwasher started to have a foul odor. We managed to clean out the drainer in the bottom of the dishwasher and I thought for sure the problem would improve. It did not. Not only did the foul odor continue but a dirty film would collect on the bottom of the dishwasher and bottom of the door. Dishes would have small particles of food stuck on them despite thorough rinsing. As of 2 mornings ago the dishwasher will not even turn on. The lights on the control panel are out and the dishwasher seems dead. Repairman is on the way but I can't imagine this being an inexpensive repair. I suspect that the repair will put me about halfway toward the purchase of a new dishwasher. I had a 2 year old GE Profile in another home which actually sat in a garage for 4 months after a major kitchen water leak and was reinstalled and worked perfectly. We purchased this KitchenAid thinking that it was the best. Totally disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked less than 2 years We bought our dishwasher in April 2014 and it is December 2016 and our dishwasher control panel broke and it is a $500 repair to fix. Expect a dishwasher to work more than 2 years. Very disappointed. Buyer Beware!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietest Dishwasher I have ever owned I've been using this dishwasher for 2 months and still can't get over how quiet it is. Occasionally I forget that I turned it on and open it to add something only to realize that it is mid-cycle. My dishes are clean, it's noiseless, what more could I want?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Features We purchased this a few weeks back and I must say that it does not clean the silverware as good as my last Kitchen Aid Architect but the sound proofing is much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Dishwasher, Love the 3rd Shelf We've had this dishwasher just over a year now and it has been a great purchase. Since we have a great kitchen, it really encourages me to cook at home. Lots of pots and pans, lots of dishes and the third shelf for knives, forks and spoons really helps with getting the maximum number of dirty dishes into the dishwasher. We did have a minor issue with the door latch which was replaced under warranty early on, but we've had no problems since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good dishwasher, gets the job done as it is intended This dishwasher is very quite, you hardly know that it is running. The dishwasher doesn't clean as well as our previous kitchenaid version.
