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 6359.

The only reason I gave this dishwasher 4 instead of 5 stars is how easily it turns on, including when you are doing something on the counter above the dishwasher just by leaning on the counter. I read this in reviews and expected it. But since I wanted to see the controls on my dishwasher, I purchased it knowing this fact. It was disconcerting to read how long the washing cycle is on lots of dishwashers. Finally, I read in ONE place in this product's instruction manual that part of the wash cycle is resting. It sprays and rests and sprays and rests numerous times. This allows water and detergent to penetrate stuck on food. It's more efficient this way and gets dishes cleaner than straight washing and a shorter cycle.

The one thing that I was very disappointed with is the leak that it had after I installed it. It didn't leak from any of the water connections that I made. It was leaking from a factory connection that didn't get tightened up at the factory. I sent a message to Kitchen Aid and didn't get any response as if they could care less. I am not sure that I would recommend this dishwasher. Dave

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not clean, runs long and smells. Bought this dishwasher to replace an older model dishwasher to match all the other Kitchenaid appliances. This one is quiet but it does not clean well, runs forever and smells. Had service out and he ran numerous checks and said everything is fine. Our water temperature is fine, we have a water softener and use all the recommended detergents and cleaning agents. Advised us to run bleach or vineagar to help eliminate the odors. Short fix. He said it runs long because of the new government standards. Whatever. Seems none of our friends have issues with their dishwashers. Government standards or not. Very disappointed.

Yes, it's very quiet, it looks great, but its performance, what really matters, was subpar. Until I did two things - one, changed from gel detergent to pacs (which is highly recommended in the instruction manual) and second, let the water at the sink run as hot as it gets before starting the cycle, as recommended by a service person. After that, the performance of this thing has been top-notch. It's unfortunate that we need to waste extra water to wash the dishes, but it's the unintended consequence of the low energy consumption dishwashers. We save energy, but waste water. Make sure you do those two things and you will be pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great dishwasher! We recently moved into a brand new home. This dishwasher has been great. Easy to use (love the Control Lock) and it does a great job. I love the individual slots for the utensils to go in and the ease with which the tray is removed. Great product. KitchenAid is always my go-to! :) (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Its super quiet and cleans dishshes without having to hand wash first or running another cycle. Also love the child lock feature my son loves to press the buttons and this way if he dose it dosnt stop or start a load by mistake. Im very happy with our kitchen aid.

It was functional for about a year -- good for the money but not a great job of cleaning dishes. Also very long run time -- more than stated. After a year it began to intermittently leak! It leaks out the left front bottom and out the top under the counter. It has caused extensive damage to our flooring way beyond the value of the dishwasher. We also have damage to the undersides of the countertop. Needless to say this was a total waste of money. It led me to some extensive research on brands including asking Home Depot's carrier for extended warranties to see what brands get the least claims and they emphatically said "Bosch".
