Customer Questions & Answers

Does anyone experience a buzzing noise?

I just had this dishwasher installed yesterday. Yes, it is much quieter than my 12 year-old GE. But has anyone noticed a "buzzing" noise during the wash and/or rinse cycles? I just need to know whether or not this is normal. Thank you for your answers.

Does this model do a good job cleaning the dishes or do you have to rinse them off well before putting dishes in the dishwasher
Asked by: Dave
It is rated #1 in consumer reports. I have one and yes it cleans great. Which detergent you use also matters. I never pre-rinse my dishes, but I do remove chunks of food.

I have cabinets on either side of the dishwasher. Are they likely to get covered in moisture from the steam exhaust created by the ProDry option?

Asked by: Concerned
So far we have not had that experience - so far they has not been any evidence of moisture on the surrounding cabinets

Is there a light to indicate the cycle is complete? If so, does it stay on?

Asked by: Corey
yes-- there is a little indicator on the front panel that says, "clean" when the cycle is finished

Architect Series II Top Control Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub, Ultra-Fine Filter, 43 dBA is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 2254.

It worked great, cleaned well, and was very quiet. Last week it just stopped working. Had a repair man come to house to diagnose the problem and discovered that the pump motor was broke. With labor and parts it will cost me close to $500 to get it fixed. It is only 1 1/2 years old and out of warranty. My last dishwasher was still working after 15 years and it was an inexpensive one. I switched over to stainless steel appliances so I needed to get a new one. Thought kitchen aid was a good, reliable brand. I was wrong.

This unit, which is a Whirlpool Brand, was purchased to replace a Sears Kenmore Elite (also a Whirlpool Brand) with a failed door spring lift cord, failed door latch, and failed vent system. The most aggravating aspects of the Kenmore unit was the door would always pop open during every wash and the door latch was flimsy at best. Consequently the door construction of the KitchenAid unit was of keen interest. The latch is far more robust and it latches with a pronounced detent and opens well - so far so good. The vent system is quite different; the KitchenAid has a louvered vent along the left door edge near the top as well as a vent "shoot" concealed under the bottom left edge at the lower left corner of the door. This bottom vent is where you can feel warmed air expelled when drying. The KitchenAid also has a far more user friendly display on the face of the door (its the dark rectangular window just above the door handle in the picture) versus the Kenmore Elite's three idiot LEDs. The KitchenAid uses real words to explain: what is going on, when it is OK or not to open the door to add additional items to be washed, when it is rinsing and when it is drying. Nice touch. This review is not 5 stars for two reasons: 1. The drain hose rubber fitting's inside diameter, which attaches to the sink's dishwasher drain tailpiece, is a bit too large and the provided hose clamp is USELESS as it is essential a "spring" clamp and there is no way for it to exert sufficient pressure to prevent leaking. It was replaced with a gear style hose clamp, but even with this clamp it took a lot of tightening with a socket wrench to compress the rubber fitting and stop the leaking. After several dish washings with toilet paper wrapped around the tailpiece (my favorite water leak detector!) it appears OK with no more leaks. 2. But the worst part is the provided mounting brackets ARE NOT PROPERLY MANUFACTURED. Any individual would have had one heck of a "blow your top" installation if you have granite (or solid surface) countertops. With Granite counters, one must install the brackets to the sides of the dishwasher such that you then screw the brackets to adjoin wood cabinet sides (completely hidden inside the space where the dishwasher gets installed between cabinets - you don't see the brackets or screws, so don't worry). With the brackets affixed to the sides of the dishwasher frame you will note the bracket screw hole DOES NOT ALIGN with the screw hole opening in the dishwasher frame. You insert the screw with the door open through a hole in the frame, then through the hole in the bracket, and screw into the wood cabinet. BUT NOT WHEN THE BRACKET AND DISHWASHER HOLES ARE 3/16 of an inch MISALIGNED !! PATHETIC MANUFACTURING - WHO THE HECK IS PROVIDING QUALITY ASSURANCE? The solution is relatively simple - if you have proper tools. BE CAREFULL with the next part of the solution as although the brackets are identical, this requires one of them to be attached UPSIDE DOWN. THIS IS IMPORTANT !! Temporarily attach both brackets and using a pencil inserted through the frame screw hole make a pencil mark on the bracket while ensuring you keep the pencil properly aligned. Remove the brackets, and place them on a workbench, block of wood, or other similar surface that could be marred. Position a nail punch and with a hammer strike the punch to leave a substantial punch dimple in the bracket. You'll find this mark to be about 3/16" inch above or below the hole that is already in the bracket - BUT MALALIGNED !! Using a very sharp drill bit (IMPORTANT - as you do NOT want the drill to "walk" given the new hole will actually break into the existing hole) drill a hole as small as possible - just large enough for your mounting screw to pass through (again because the new hole WILL break into the existing hole and create a key hole shape). Clamp the bracket to a drill press table or hold it securely with a pair of vise grips - do NOT hold with fingers as there is a chance the drill bit will "grab" the bracket and start it spinning which could cause injury. Carefully and SLOWLY drill the new hole in each bracket. Sizing the new hole just large enough for the mounting screw helps keep the screw aligned when installing dishwasher to cabinets. TIP #1 - Remove and keep the old dishwasher mounting brackets. You may find they are similar to the KitchenAid brackets. The Kenmore brackets were almost an eighth of an inch too long but metal shears trimmed off the excess. I actually used the Kenmore brackets to drill the above holes just in case it didn't work out or I messed up etc. They worked just fine once trimmed and drilled. TIP #2 - if you are replacing a dishwasher made by Whirlpool, a lot of components in your old dishwasher are suitable for use in this KitchenAid, such as utensil baskets (The Kenmore baskets are far better than the KitchenAid baskets (IMO). Personal Opinion - I always position tableware with handles up and therefore do not make use of the utensil basket "lids" (Kenmore basket tops hinge up and out of the way while KitchenAid have to be snapped out and manually removed - a nuisance. My conviction is come time to remove the utensils, my hands ought to touch the utensil handle and not the part which enters someone's mouth. I know, I know the argument is with the handle down, dirty water drains down to the handle. Really? so everything else in the dishwasher might also not be clean or cleaner? So I'll keep my handles up, thank you very much. Also, with careful utensil positioning or by using adjacent basket compartments for like utensils one can easily prevent nesting as with spoon bowls.

This model dishwasher (KitchenAid Architect Series II) broke November 2016 (four months old, purchased July 2016). As of 1/27/17 it is still not working (over two months later). The manufacturers warranty is terrible. There have been four repair appts. thus far. The 2nd appt. resulted in a three week back order part that did not fix the problem. I am currently in a two week wait period for another back order part with an unknown future wait time. Over two months without a dishwasher! They refuse to replace the machine! Don't a buy Kitchenaid or Maytag or Whirlpool warranty (all owned by Whirpool). It is so frustrating!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Performance Purchased this dishwasher after much research a few months ago. Was hesitant to put plastic items, pots, pans and baking dishes into this dishwasher because my last Kitchenaid dishwasher wouldn't clean them. I had become accustomed to hand washing many items daily. I decided to start trying these difficult items in this new dishwasher to see if they'd be cleaned as advertised. I first added plastic items and was amazed to find them clean upon unloading. So I next tried adding pots and once again, they came out clean. I was elated! It became a daily quest to see what I could add next. Even a pan that I had baked fish in came out spotless. Finally! A dishwasher that actually washes dishes, plastic, pots, pans and everything else I've put into it. I would definitely recommend this dishwasher to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality . . . Great Features Purchased based upon Consumer Reports rating as #1 . . . dishwasher is very well built and has wide choice of cycles to meet everyday needs. I was able to install the unit myself without any problems of issues. Best of all, the dishwasher cleans well on both racks and is very quiet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks nice but not impressed with washing I chose this dishwasher because of the sleek outer stainless steel look, the interior setup of the racks, and the washing choices. I actually rinse my dishes somewhat before putting them in, but after running a regular cycle and having that last remaining grit on them after it runs - I am questioning whether I got a lemon. I have also tried the Prowash Soil sense cycle and didn't help any. Quite disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good but not perfect. Got an excellent buy, it washes terrifically, is super quiet, and we are very happy. A couple things to note: The lower basket is lower than most in the past, so get prepared to bend over and reach further. The door moves harder than we like, so trying to figure out how to loosen that up a bit. The control panel is very touch sensitive and being located on the top edge of the door it is very easy to accidentally turn things on and off when opening and closing the door to fill (we had to read the instructions to turn off the panel locking feature after it got turned on by mistake). Cereal bowls don't get done and need a pre-wash if using oatmeal, but that's a tough one anyway. We have not used all the features yet, but look forward to some of them. All in all it is very good and light years better than what we had. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
