Customer Reviews

Front Control Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub, 7 Options, 40 dBA is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Quiet I bought this dishwasher a week ago and have used it every day since then. It is so quiet I have to put my ear next to it to see if it is in fact running. The dishes and pots come out very clean and are dry enough to put away immediately. I have to use the lock feature though, because it is very easy to lean against and start a cycle without meaning to. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quiet, but not built to last We have owned this dishwasher for approximately 4 years. It is extremely quiet which is a must in our home where the kitchen is wide open to the living room and TV. It also cleans dishes as expected. Unfortunately, the design of this product puts excessive weight on the upper wrack rollers which are held in place with cheap plastic. Over time, with normal use, the weight combined with the rollers rubbing on the cheap plastic, the cheap plastic breaks. When this happens, you will have the pleasant surprise of your upper rack falling onto your lower rack. The parts are available online, but they are over $30.00 on any of the appliance sites. In four years, we have fixed the right side once, and this week will be fixing the left side for the second time. I know this will not be the last time since again, this damage is caused by normal use. It seems that no appliances last longer than a couple years without something breaking. But, this flaw would have me steer clear of this unit if you are in the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than advertized It was time to replace our 25yr old dishwasher so after some research online and reading reviews we selected KitchenAid. It is so quiet if not for the lights we would not know it was running. Lots of space and does a great job. No more washing dishes before we load dishwasher. Better than advertized!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Dishwasher Ever!!! I have always had KitchenAid dishwashers and found them to be unsurpassed. I entertain a lot, and in my last house, I had 3 of them (2 in kitchen and one in the bar). This is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. First, the one hour wash does nothing but santize. To really wash, you have to go with the power wash, which takes hours. It is so slow and still doesn't do the job that earlier models did. Plus, it is so cheaply made. I have had it less than a year and the rollers are already broken. I will never buy another KitchenAid dishwasher. This one has caused me to lose all faith in KitchenAid, if it was willing to put its name on an appliance this bad, especially at this price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy a Kitchenaid Does not last! electronic board burned out within one year of purchase. They paid to replace it the first time but I had to wait 6 weeks for the part. No dishwasher for six weeks! The board burned out again within 14 months of being replaced and now it is my problem. We paid $250 to have it replaced and its still not right. I think they use the same basic electronic board for all the do not buy. This is the most I have ever paid for a dishwasher and it is the worst I have ever had as far as quality. It is great when it works! In 20 years I have never had to call out a repairman to work on a dishwasher until this one! Do not waist your money. Paid over $1500.00 and when this second board finally gives out I will not invest another $250.00 in the dishwasher. So I paid over $1,500.00 for the dishwasher and had to pay $250.00 for repairs within 3 years and the lights on the board still light up when they are not supposed to. This very expensive dishwasher for only 3-4 years...its not worth it.
