Can the silverware basket sit on the other side (left side) of lower rack!

Asked by: Beth
The answers above are all "No, because the tines on the left would prevent that." Since the lower rack is removable, can the whole lower rack not just be turned around so that the utensil basket is on the left?

Where does the steam vent out at?

So many new dishwashers vent out on top underneath counters or into the cabinets on side causing damage and mold/odor issues.
Asked by: SAM
I was originally misinformed by Kitchen Aid, they told me the steam vented out the bottom, below the door. After getting it unboxed, I saw it vents out of the top-level side edge of the door, which is under the top edge of the counter top, and not where the vapor barrier is placed. Kitchen Aid should get their money back from the so called engineers that designed this, and fire them. Venting out the front is better. These are not the Kitchen Aid when made by Hobart, today it's just a name, but keep in mind that all dishwashers today are following the failed European energy efficiency style.

24 in. Front Control Built-in Tall Tub Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub and ProWash Cycle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6412.

Unfortunately, 17 months after I bought this dishwasher, water stopped being pumped through the machine. Talking to a repair person, they said it is usually the sump pump and it was going to be roughly a $300-400 repair on a $760 dishwasher. We use the dishwasher twice a week and pre-wash every dish, so it really only sanitizes the dishes and the previous dishwasher lasted 20 years. Being upset I called KitchedAid and after a 30 minute wait and 20 minutes on the phone with customer support, I was sent to a manager who agreed to cover this repair under goodwill warranty. I believe me saying this is the first & last KitchenAid appliance I would buy because of the experience. Talking with the repair person, he said these products break down a lot. I love KitchenAid small appliance products and thought I was okay since Whirlpool makes them, but I was obviously wrong. I gave it a FAIR rating because KitchenAid fixed it under warranty, but I will not buy another one. Fool me once, shame on you - Fool me twice, shame on me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, efficient. I waited till Thanksgiving to write this (about three months) just to see how things went. I'm still happy. The unit kicks *** and takes names. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor quality stainless The dishwasher works fine and is quiet as advertised. My issue is with the stainless steel front. I have had this dishwasher for about 1 year and the front has several areas where it seems like it is rusting. It looks terrible. I have only used cleaners made specifically for SS on this. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good dishwasher. Very quiet. I bought this a couple of years ago and now want to replace the front with stainless. Is that possible?

PROS: dishwasher is very quiet CONS: Doesn't clean dishes takes 4 hours to run This dishwasher has been pretty awful since we got it but my husband refuses to get another one because he likes that this one is quiet. It worked well enough to sanitize dishes after I handwash them and run them through for a couple of years. Now after 2 years, the dishes come out dirtier than when I put them in. It has become a large drying rack now... I think it's under some kind of warranty so just trying to figure that out now. I would not recommend this dishwasher to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features I bought this dishwasher for the stainless steel insides and the filters that you can clean. The sanitize cycle is great to use if there is sickness in the house. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really quiet! We have only run it through two cycles but we love how quiet it is and how well it washes and dries (we replaced our 20 yr-old Maytag.) If there is a downside---we are old and the door is really a chore to push fully open. We are also still adjusting to the flatware tray---more work than just throwing them in---our knives, soup spoons and forks require the large slots so it is a pain to find the correct slot as the trays get full. Still trying to teach my husband to fill from one end instead of willy nilly all over which hides the empty slots. Also, you should indicate in the brochure that you have to hit the start button twice to get it to begin the cycle. We had to call our daughter when ours stopped and she explained that is how they start theirs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy This is the first Kitchen Aid I've owned. I absolutely LOVE the way it washes the dishes and they actually come out clean and dry. This is such a switch for me. I was used to my dishes not being dry after a cycle and not clean sometimes. So this Kitchen Aid is a wonder to have and operate. I used to have to scrub the dishes clean before I put them in the dishwasher, I no longer have to do that. Such a relief to be able to rinse them off and know they'll come out clean.
