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.

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: RyobiFailedMe
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 2472.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought this dishwasher in June of 2015. It worked great, cleaned well, and was very quiet. Last w... Bought this dishwasher in June of 2015. 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.

I did a lot of research before selecting this dishwasher, including bringing my larger dishes and stemware to the store to see how they loaded in the machine. In the store, all was well. I've now had the machine since early November 2016 (9 months) and I am disappointed with it for several reasons. My large ceramic plates have become chipped. Wine glasses come out with lip-mark stains still on them and for all the 'pro-wash' and 'pro-scrub' features, dishes, cups and glassware still come out with food stains. The dishwasher I gave up was 20 years old and had a far superior loading system and the overall cleaning was better. I have read the loading instructions multiple times, tried loading things differently and leaning them over so they don't tip or fall into each other, try not to overload the machine, all to no avail.

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.]

As advertised , extremely silent ! 43 dBA 'sounded' like a good number , but it really is , this dishwasher makes less noise than our fridge. Nothing special to report about installation, was reasonably easy. Note that you have to provide your own power cord. Dishes are very clean. The Pro-dry does a good job at removing all humidity , which is good for a second home if you want to leave the dishes in from one weekend to the next. Note that the Pro-dry vent is on the left side of the front door , so it is unaffected by enclosing the washer. Only small drawback , lots of fingerprints on the top of the stainless door.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small/poor interior design & does NOT clean well. I'm so disappointed with this dishwasher. I spent a week reading reviews on dozens of dishwashers and finally chose this one based on the stellar reviews. I've been using it for 2 months now, and I can say with 100% certainty that I hate it's guts. 1. My dishes do not get clean! If you place a dish in with *any* food residue, don't expect it to be clean. I'm not talking about baked on/caked on food. I'm talking about very minimal residue that is left after a quick rinse. I've tried multiple settings to try and get my dishes clean, but nothing helps. I'm using the recommended pods and rinse aid. I've tried every cleaning setting in multiple combinations to no avail. 2. The interior is small & poorly designed. This dishwasher is designed for plates, bowls, and traditional sized glasses. That's it. Pots, pans, sippy cups, Tupperware containers, cookie sheets, & such DO NOT FIT properly. You have to lay pans over on their side to get them to fit. By doing so, they take up half the rack (and still don't get clean)! I dread loading this thing. It's like doing a puzzle where none of the pieces fit together. 3. It vents out of the bottom of the door. So all that hot steamy air is getting blown onto my wood flooring and creating moisture. :( On a positive note, it's quiet as a mouse. I am extremely impressed with how silent it is. All that can be heard while it's running are my sobs of regret. It does dry well as long as you're using rinse aid. The exterior design looks nice. In summary, this is the worst and most expensive dishwasher I've ever owned. I absolutely would not recommend it.

However after owning it about 8 years I find myself looking at buying replacement racks because they have rotted away. The silverware rack has holes so large they cant hold anything and all of the plastic clips for the racks are broken or melted. Several tines are also broken off. Needless to say the parts are so expensive that I may as well buy a new dishwasher. I get that kids load dishes carelessly but its not their fault the silverware holder is rotten and has been rotting for a number (at least 3) years and now. By the way if we don't pre-wash our dishes they don't get clean. I like that it is quiet still and it looks nice on the outside but that is not enough.

We bought this dishwasher as part of our kitchen remodel because it was quiet and highly rated. We're surprised at the high ratings as the unit we received does not clean the dishes. Even with pre-rinsing dishes come out dirty every load; we've tried different settings and have not been able to get a successful load yet. We're probably going to exchange this dishwasher and hope the replacement actually cleans dishes.
