Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer Beware I did not purchase this dishwasher, it came with a BRAND NEW home and was installed correctly. Well needless to say it broke within in 1 month. The lights on the control panel worked sporadically and Kitchenaid said there was nothing wrong with it. Maybe I got the lemon of their dishwashers but after 2 years the dishwasher NO LONGER works at all. It now serves as an expensive drying rack for my dishes. I will never buy a large kitchen aid product again. (I love their small mixers etc. but their large products do not work well.) Oh and Kitchen aid only thinks that appliances break Monday-Friday. December 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Dishwasher Bought a little over a month ago when we switched our appliances to Stainless Steel. Very happy with selection. Very quiet. The repeat setting (press start twice) is very cool. Only one that had a specific 'China' setting November 16, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very tired of kitchen aid dishwashers!!!! I have purchased 2 kitchen aid dishwashers in the past 8 years. The first one i bought may have been a fluke as nothing ever got clean. So again I purchases another thinking the brand name was so good it must be me. Well it is not me. I have tried numerous products rinses etc to get these dishes clean but to no avail as they still come out with some sort of food particle on them. Be informed that I take steps ahead of time to prewash dishes, make sure disposal is clean, make sure water is very hot, put vinegar in rinse. My teenage sons says that our dishes have not really been clean for a while. Warning to all ...these energy saving products are a real disappointment July 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THE BEST DISHWASHER I HAVE EVER OWNED We have two houses with KitchenAid dishwasher in both. It cleans dishes, glassware and stainless pots and pans unlike any other dishwasher I have ever owned. I especially like the knife/fork/spoon compartments. It allows each to be washed thoroughly without any of them sticking together. October 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 4 weeks :Still waiting for parts Worse thing to buy. Broke since 4 weeks . Hand washing Dishes. Bought it less than year ago. I have all kinds of warranties but stuck with this broken dishwasher . September 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A complete lemon Bought this product about 4 yrs ago and got an extended warranty. Have had the repairman out about every 6 months. They've replaced the motherboard twice...and guess what, it's failed again. An absolute piece of junk. August 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Is it running? Can hear it run....so quiet. Don't need the delay start. We have a compact style great room/kitchen combined house....so sound levels were of concern to us....well my title says it all. As a bonus it even seems to wash the dishes well! We had an issue with the door panel (stainless) being off color...contacted service and had a service man come out....he ordered the new door panel and was installed within a week. He suggest that we only use a teaspoon of detergent per wash.....looks like we have a couple of years of detergent! March 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet washer Replaced my old kitchen aid dishwasher with this. Nice design and delivers many options. Love the fact it is so quiet. April 8, 2015
