Customer Questions & Answers

Is it more difficult to fit taller glasses because there is a 3rd rack?

If you lower the rack will it hit my plates?
Asked by: bun
I do not find this to be the case however if you are finding this to be a concern you can always remove the third rack when washing the taller glasses without having to lower the second rack. The third rack is easily removed (By sliding off to right and left the end caps on the slide) and replaced.

can I remove the top rack?

Asked by: nkeller
If you mean the third rack, yes, easily.

Will It Heat the Wash Water?

The manual says, before starting the cycle, "Run hot water at the sink nearest your dishwasher until the water is hot." Is this necessary? None of the other brands I'm looking at say anything about this, and neither does the manual for my 25 year old KitchenAid.
Asked by: toolworker
yes - two options for this. Sani-rinse and high temp scrub

Does it have a indicator light when on and where?

Asked by: Ds
Yes it does. A indicator light is located on the front of the door just to the right of the handle. The light also gives you the status of the wash cycle. It begins as a blue light showing you that it is in the wash cycle, then it changes to red during the drying cycle and then finally to white when the cycles are complete. I usually wait a while after completing the wash to open and empty the dishwasher although that is not necessary. Also since all the controls indicators are on the top of the door I can actually see them when the door is closed and it is in operation. I guess that would depend on how far it sits underneath your counter top.

It has approximately 50 pitted rust spots forming on the exterior door less than 9 months after installation. I will be doing what I can do rectify the situation, but am not interested in the same model as I'm certain it will have the same issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dishwasher that actually washes dishes I was so tired of having to wash my dishes before I put them in the dishwasher. I've only had two dishwashers in my life that actually washed the dishes without me having to rinse them or wash them first. They were both kitchenaids. One was a used portable and I couldn't believe how well it worked. So when I got tired of prewashing everything, of course I wanted another kitchenaid. The only two problems I've had: a little plastic thing fell off and I can't figure out how to put it back on or what it is for and the dishes are never really dry. but they are clean. Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality The quality is very bad and it leaves soap residue/suds all over. I called the customer service, they were weak and did not provide any help to fix this issue. They sent technicians every month to look into it ad nothing was ever resolved in the last 8 months. Every time, they said something that did not make sense to me; they said to not use Pods anymore, that I had to go back to powder or liquid. I will never buy any kitchenaid products again in my life.

A replacement unit was ordered arrived a week and a half later. That unit powered up but would not cycle. Both units determined to be defective out of the box by the HD installers. Called Kitchen Aid but received only a "that's odd" statement with no admission of defective products. KitchenAid get good rating by Consumer reports, but that certainly wasn't my experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet! So far we are loving this dishwasher. It is super quiet, which was the main factor in selecting this dishwasher. It also cleans very well -- better than our last one. We like the adjustable shelves, too. I would recommend this dishwasher to anyone looking for a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't you dare rinse! This is by far the best dishwasher ever. It cleans baked on foods unbelievably. Love the redesign of the utensil bin. Very quiet but that's just a bonus. I fee like I should work for kitchen aid the way I go on about this dishwasher [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and does it ever clean We have had this over a month now and I still get fooled thinking we have to start the dish washer while I'm watching TV because you just can't hear it doing its job. This has more capacity and does a far better cleaning job than our previous dish washer and it was a Kitchen Aid also. Large pots and pans and roasters fit with ease and there is still plenty of room for everything else. Don't hesitate about purchasing this because the only thing you'll regret is that you waited to long. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean and Dry! I am super happy with how modern, clean, and stylish this dishwasher looks in my kitchen. But even more so, I am happy with it's functionality. It is very quiet...sometimes I have to listen carefully to see if it's running. It cleans everything spotless, and all my dishes are dry when I take them out, even the cups, which used to have a ring of water sitting in the top (bottom part of the cup). I love the third rack for utensils, and I didn't realize there is a mini basket at the rear of the top rack (2nd rack) for smaller items. I like to put medicine cups in there and they don't fly around during the cycle. I am really happy with my purchase and can't think of anything I'd do to improve the unit.
