With top control the front of the appliance is cleaner as the buttons are on the top of the door and therefore not visible from the front. Provided there is room between the underside of the counter and the top of the closed door, there is no problem to work the buttons. You can also set the control prior to closing the door and then just press "Start" once the door is closed. It will be important to measure from the underside of your counter top to the floor to ensure that a top-control dishwasher will fit. Not all counter tops are installed at the standard/recommended height. Read Less

Answer: 
The difference is that small children are unable to access the controls if they are located on the top, under the counter. It also gives the appliance a more sleek look, without having to look at a bunch of buttons/knobs. Easier to clean too, without having to wipe around all the knobs/dials. The controls are only accessible when you open the door. It's also rated the #1 dishwasher!

The difference is mostly aesthetics. Some like the look of semi hidden controls while others prefer the controls on the front. The controls on the top control aren't accessible with the door closed.

Answer: 
Just pull the handle (or the top of the door if you haven't yet installed the handle)! The catch is automatic and sturdy. If you haven't installed it yet, you'll have to hold the top of the cabinet as you pull the handle or door otherwise you'll just pull the whole unit across the floor.

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 1602.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite pleased This unit replaced an older diswasher. The KitchenAid is very well organized, and it cleans fantastic. The decrease in noise of this unit is staggering compared to most other units I have used. Very quiet. It is not the cheapest option, but for the level of clean, the dirty pan wash in the back, space, quality of drawers and organizers, and general impression, I am 100% satisfied. I had very high expectations based upon Consumer Report reviews, and can say that it meets or exceeds what I expected when I purchased. It is always nice to have a top-tier option that says "Made in USA".

But God help you if you ever have to use the warranty. These are manufactured by Whirlpool. They will do everything in their power not to replace it. The repairmen have been to my house 5 times and the door still leaks. It has cost them far more than a replacement but Whirlpool/Kitchenaid still refuses to replace it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buzzing Noise in Wash Cycle The washer itself seems to be cleaning OK. I like the rack features (i.e. knife holders, back basket, utensil basket). The only "feature" that I don't like is the need to press start to resume a cycle if the door is opened. The issue that I have is that there is a buzzing noise during the wash cycle. The 8 year old Bosch that this replaced was rated at a 44db but was much quieter. With the Bosch all I could hear was the sound of the water swishing around inside. With the Kitchenaid I hear the water plus the buzzing during the wash cycle. The buzzing goes away when the washer drains and is not present in the dry cycle. The fan that runs during the dry cycle is almost inaudible.

This dishwasher was installed a few months ago, I have to say it puts our old Bosch to shame. It's perfect. The 'shelves' pull in and out with ease and the dishes come out dry and sparkling. Home Depot got it installed in less time than was promised and big bonus when you aren't used to hand washing. Five stars all the way to HD and KitchenAid.

We bought this after moving to a new house and dealing with a 10 year old sub-par Maytag that would leave particles all over the place. On the old dishwasher we replaced the poor design of a filter (not meant to be self repair type filter) and a broken handle. We finally had enough. We got the new KitchenAid 2 days before Thanksgiving (2016). Thanksgiving dinner was the real test. We loaded the dishwasher without pre-cleaning (just scraped the big bits off without water) and fully loaded the dishwasher. The dishes came out sparkling clean without any food stuck to the dishes! The dishwasher is very quiet. We don't have to turn the TV volume up anymore while it is running. It has run flawlessly for the last few weeks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brand New dishwasher that ... doesn't wash We bought this unit from Home Depot and it arrived new and packaged nicely in plastic. We hooked it up and used for a couple of cycles to find that it doesn't wash well. Dishes from the top rack always come out greasy no matter how heavy the cycle is, food particles and residue everywhere on dishes. Parts of detergent left in dispenser after a full cycle with a lead to the bottom of dishwasher on inside of the door (which means it's rinsing with detergent putting at risk of poisoning). Upon investigation water appeared not to be getting up to the top rack, as the top rack propeller stays in place and doesn't spin, same does the top sprinkler. One can easily tell that by placing a bowl or few on the top rack right side up - in the case of properly working machine it should get full of water at the end of cycle, and in our case there's just nothing. So we got a dishwasher that doesn't do it's main job - wash dishes, unacceptable for $1000 value top of the line dishwasher. Home Depot refused to take it back for an exchange as all their sales are "final" and major appliances are "non-returnable", routed to Service Center for warranty work. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dishwasher is noisy and trying to get it repaired for the second time - can report later if it is fixed I am currently unhappy with the purchase. I bought this dishwasher because it was rated to be very quiet. It is clearly not and I even got a decibel reader that shows that the dishwasher is running at over 80 decibels. I tried to get it fixed and although the repairman said he could see what the issue was and replaced some parts it did not make any noticeable difference. Waiting for the second trip to see if it can be fixed. If it won't, I would like to return the dishwasher and get one that is quiet. I also paid for the dishwasher to be installed professionally and there was a leak. The first service visit did fix that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with our purchase We were having trouble with a 10 year old Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Food and grime was regurgitating from somewhere even though we cleaned the filter and checked the angle of the hoses. We saw the consumer reports recommendation of this Kitchen Aid dishwasher and decided to go for it. The first night we had it, i put a spoon and bowl caked with Mac N Cheese in there and it came out spotless. I was shocked. No problems with it at all in the two months we've had it. It's so quiet I can't even tell if it's running. Love the way the racks glide, plenty of room and flexibility with spacing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
