Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cleans well We like the dishwasher, but we've had trouble with the racks. The ball bearing has been repaired three times. It was covered under warranty but still was a pain. Washes really well

Rated 2 out of 5 by from THE MACHINE LOOKS NICE I checked out the specs on the dishwasher before purchasing and saw that it was supposed to be extremely quiet besides all the other fab features. I wanted a quiet machine which I have had in the past. The machine, when it goes into certain cycles, makes a terrible extremely loud, grinding noise as though it is straining. I keep thinking the dishwasher is going to explode. Called service and the repair person didn't have a clue what it was. I also called KitchenAid and told them I wanted to know if this machine is supposed to sound this way. The person I spoke to didn't have a clue. She gave me the names of more repair people. If not for the noise, the machine works great.. 2 of my friends just bought BOSCH dishwashers and have to double check if the machine is on, it is so quiet. i GAVE THE MACHINE 2 STARS BECAUSE OF THE NOISE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and effective The unit is sleek and understated with butttons hidden once the door is closed. Our only complaint thus far has been that tall items can interfere with the rotating spray bar and prevent complete cleaning. But otherwise, the washer has been trouble free and silent in its work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it needs to, and does it well This dishwasher came with our new house, along with all other Kitchen Aid appliances. Our last house also had all Kitchen Aid appliances. They've been consistently great, and go for a long time without repairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is it running??? This is the only kitchenmaid appliance I bought when we downsized to a new condo. We simply did not want to compromise. We are amazed how quiet it is--we've had to train ourselves to look at the LCD indicator on the door that tells you if it is on or what cycle it's in. You just can't hear it! It cleans amazingly well, but you have to use the rinse agent to reduce condensation after the drying cycle. There's a removable utensil tray that we removed on the top rack, but other than that the interior design is similar to other Kitchenmaid dishwashers we have owned--well planned out. The stainless steel front is sleek and blends in with our other brand appliances. This was a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best reliable dishwasher! We replaced our old Kitchenaid with a new one. We like it so much, we didn't change brands and our new dishwasher doesn't disappoint. It holds a lot, is easy to load, dishes come out clean and dry, it's efficient and quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice So far, this is the best dishwasher I have ever owned. The dishes, etc. come out sparkling clean. It is so quiet, I have to listen closely to see if it is on. It looks good too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dishwasher! Remodeled my entire kitchen and purchased all new Kitchenaid appliances. I love this dishwasher. It is easy to load and unload, holds a lot of dishes, is very quiet and easy to operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful Surprise!! We have now had our new KA dishwasher for a little over two weeks. Keeping in mind that we have owned Kitchenaid Dishwashers since the early 80's, might help you understand why we are so pleasantly surprised. We have struggled through poor models and the upper-end models for over two decades, so we are able to judge a good product when we find it. We love the fact that this machine is so quiet, but more important, we are impressed that our dishes, especially glasses, are spotless when they come out at the end of the cycle. We were concerned that the cycles were going to too long, but are happy they are not. They are not any longer than our previous KA, which was purchased in 2008. We don't find the loading much different than the other models we had, but we were happy to find that the noise improvement and the clean-ability are superior to our previous models, especially the KUDS0 3 CTWH model that we purchased in 2008. As you can see from the model number, the previous model was mid line and white; one of our reasons for changing was color; our other appliances are stainless steel, we also upgraded to this model, and are pleased that the decision to go with kitchen aid and this model was a good one. We are comfortable recommending it to those of you who haven't made up your mind.
