Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly effective I bought my dishwasher a few weeks ago. Aside from the great appearance of the unit, it is amazingly quiet and I have never had such clean dishes from a dishwasher. I am so happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet operation Looks nice with the window and operates very quietly. Needs a button to turn on interior light vs only when door is open. Why have a window if you can not see in it. Silverware basket takes up A LOT of room vs previous basket in door model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line Kitchenaid I've had this dishwasher for a few months. Bought from Best Buy at a steep discount after they screwed up my order for a lower priced model. I researched for the last 18 months and was determined to buy a solid dishwasher that would clean tough stuff well and had a heated dry option. Other requirements were 1. Smooth rack operation 2. sports bottle cleaning 3. top rack for spatulas, pizza cutter, utensils, etc 4. stainless steel 5. quiet operation 6. hot water line connectivity 7. decent warranty 8. local purchase/support 9. low maintenance filter and cleaning 10. (option for) water softener. I don't think you can buy a decent, quiet, low maintenance, good cleaning/drying dishwasher for less than a grand...the KDTM804ESS has amazing performance both washing and drying, but you trade cycle time for performance, especially if you enable all the features - 4:40 is the longest cycle I've set before I leave for work or go to bed. There was only one glass cooking pan that took two washes to get clean and it had severe, hard baked-on casserole remnants and I wanted to see if this dishwasher could really get the job done, which it did in two tries. I put it facing to the rear of the dishwasher and used every cleaning option and it worked without manual scrubbing - quite impressive. It's very quiet - the only time I hear it is early in the washing cycle when I'm standing next to it in the kitchen (I have very good hearing) and it only sounds like water dripping with a slight mechanical spraying - far, far quieter than any other we've had. I added an inline water softener since we have very hard water in Iowa since my softener doesn't keep up with all the showers and clothes washing in the house. The softener helps with no more glass "clouding". This removed my requirement to have the softener in the dishwasher as well (which it obviously does not have). The adjustable middle rack is great for either washing taller dishes/items OR for bigger cups, but not both simultaneously. The bottle cleaning jets allow for washing sports bottles if I lower the middle rack to accommodate them. The top rack won't fit anything taller than about 1 inch but it does clean both sides of a pizza cutter. There is a small LED light on the upper right part of the front that gives cycle status - I think it's Blue (washing) Red (drying) and White (done) and the interior light comes on when done. I can also (just barely) see the time remaining on the top of the door where the buttons are if I bend down a little. The stainless steel from does smudge easily but is simple to wipe clean. It's also got a cool Made in the USA emblem on the front, lower right as that is tasteful, yet noticeable. I use Cascade Platinum cleaning pouches, but I put them in one of the larger utensil rack holes instead of the detergent slot and they work very well. The only time I've seen non-clean dishes is when someone puts them next to each other instead of each in a slot or places a frying pan lid with edges next to a plate, preventing water contact. The front door handle is nice for hanging a towel and solid for opening/closing and does not protrude enough to get in the way. I've had no issues with the dishwasher so far

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher but with a fatal design flaw I can tell many of the glowing reviews on this dishwasher were written shortly after receiving it and after only a few uses. Cleaning is very, very good, and it's so quiet you can barely hear it in a silent room. If there is any normal conversation or a TV on you'd never know it was running. When new, you'll love the thing. But here's the fatal flaw that is unlike any dishwasher I've owned the past 30+ years: the shelves use a 3-tier stacked rail system (the "SatinGlide" in the descriptions) that, when closed (the shelves are pushed into the dishwasher for operation) nest so closely that water and/or cleaner cannot penetrate between the rails. Add to this that the rails are in a nice, warm and humid environment and it does not take much to put two and two together in what this produces: after a few months you have inside surfaces of the rails (that can only be seen when the shelves are slid out) that are literally crawling with mold, fungus, and all kind of nasties (see photos). This machine was installed less than four months ago. Before anyone draws conclusions about my maintenance habits I should note I always, always maintain everything I own above any manufacturer's recommendations. Past dishwashers I typically ran a cleaning cycle (empty and with a cleaning product, or citric acid, or vinegar) one or two times per month. On this machine I've upped it to one or two times per week, but it makes no difference because (as I noted above) the water cannot penetrate between the 3-layer nested rails - even with the machine totally empty. If anything, it comes out looking even more gross after running such a clean cycle. At this point I've taken to manually disassembling the dishwasher and putting the gross parts into a tub of hot water and disinfectant and manually cleaning everything with an old toothbrush. This takes half a day and it is absurd that I need to do this on one of the most expensive dishwashers on the market. P.S. I've sent these photos and complaints to WP customer care, but to date they have not offered an acceptable response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Our dishes get amazingly clean, and we love the light and the handlebar. The capacity is great too! It's also very quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features! We started a kitchen remodel back in February and purchased our Kitchen Aid appliances in May (DW, Frig, Oven/Micro Combo, Induction Cooktop). Appliances were finally installed in September. I was hesitant regarding color selection, but settled with the Black Stainless and am very happy. Very classy. We replaced our 1994 GE Profile appliances which had held up well, but were not crazy about newer models or colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans great and quiet! HATE the AMERICAN sticker placed on front panel! We can’t remove it! We would not have purchased if we’d known it was there. It’s tacky and can’t remove without leaving serious marks. You really expect more when purchasing a $2000 dishwasher. They need to rethink this practice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the window Seemed silly to me to have a window on a dishwasher, but it makes the appliance much prettier and we ended up picking this over the panel ready option as we had proginally wanted, since the window makes it prettier than a regular dishwasher.
