Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible service and horrible product Nice features, great wash, and super quiet. I would rate this product super high if it weren’t for one problem. I bought this dishwasher on June 2014 and it went out on March 2015... Called customer service to get someone to service it but no one would service it. I keep calling customer service to see if anyone would come to my home but to no avail. I live 30 minutes away from service cities but no one will come to my home! What good does it do to buy a nice expensive machine when there is no customer service to help when something goes wrong! Needless to say I have been washing dishes ever since. I would not recommend anyone to buy this brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Washed great but took forever I'm not sure if I would recommend this. It cost a pretty penny. We had it a little over a year and it quit washing. Just getting a blue blinking light with "Add Dish" Icon on top blicking also right after we start the wash cycle. I emailed KitchenAid and have not received a response to the email about my problem. It calculated out to about $100 per year to own this machine. I can say that when it did work it worked fantastic. The dishes were very clean and sparkling. The total cycle took between 3 and 4 hours which I thought was a little too long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good when it works but complete motor failure in 2 years Purchased in June 2014 and initially loved the performance and low noise of the unit - sometimes when it ran you couldn't even tell! However, recently the performance started to degrade to the point that it isn't washing dishes at all. After speaking to Kitchenaid I was informed that it was a motor failure and that since it was past the 1 year warranty I would need to incur all costs, no flexibility or customer assistance at all. As a result I cannot justify recommending this unit to anyone - why pay more for something that breaks in two years?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Solid and Quiet This dishwasher is very well built. Each component moves with ease to allow different size dishes on each shelf. It runs so quietly we aren't even aware of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product After one year of use, so far so good. We bought the optional Dry, it's worth it. It's very silent, clean very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen Aid KTA 24 Dishwasher I reviewed the installation instructions before the dishwasher was delivered and was surprised that the water feed connection on the dishwasher was not included. Before I could tell the distributer to include one, he already had. That would be my only complaint with Kitchen Aid. Installation was easy, the dishwasher is extremely quite and dishes come out clean...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with Kitchen Aid dishwasher Very pleased with my Kitchen Aid dishwasher-the features I like are this machine is so quiet, the racks slide out so easily, plus it does a very good job cleaning the dishes and etc. I am surprised how many dishes and utensils will fit in it, especially like the small tray on top rack that I can put miscellaneous items (like a whisk & measuring cups). Pleased with our purchase and would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing unit I bought this a few weeks ago. We installed ourselves with ease. I've never had such a quiet dishwasher. You don't even know it's on until the water drains! I love how well it cleans and the racks are well designed for getting plenty of dishes in each load. I also like the rack for little things on the top rack.
