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.

Very easy to install (at least it was for me), runs super quiet and cleans the dishes extremely well. Our old Kitchenaid was 25+ years old and although it still ran, it was getting "tired" and not cleaning well. This new machine cleans dishes unbelievably well. Pros: 1) Easy installation 2) Energy efficient 3) Super quiet 4) Made in America! 5) Looks great! Love the black finish. Matches our other black Kitchenaid appliances well. Cons: 1) Wish it had a display to indicate the amount of time remaining in the cycle 2) Wish it had a display to indicate where it was in the cycle -- to allow you to determine if it's too late to add a dish 3) Cycles are longgggg; because of this, we most always use the Express Wash cycle 4) Machine is made mostly out of plastic (motor, etc). Just hope it lasts a long time .... although I'm not expecting 25 years like the prior workhorse

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with Dirty Dishes We have had this dishwasher for just over 2 months. We noticed a problem right away, dishes came out dirty, wet, and the Cascade pod was almost intact at the bottom of the dishwasher. The technicians first replaced a faulty pump. The next load or two had the same results as before. We also noticed although we tried the Heat Dry setting, there was no heat. Technicians came and told us the problem was our water wasn’t hot enough and suggested we run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. We also ensure we had the recommended rinse agent and detergent. We still had dirty, wet dishes and soap deposits. The technicians came again, ran diagnostics and all came back ok. They then replaced the control panel. Although most of the dishes are dry, Even on the tough setting, with Sani rinse option and high temp options selected, I am disappointed to find dirty dishes over and over again. I’m attaching some photos of examples, including this evening. I regret ever buying this machine.

The dishwasher has all the features I need and is nice and quiet. The rack setup is good. I can fill the dishwasher pretty efficiently although I'm still working out the bet layout. The silverware tray is nice, the slots for individual pieces actually works quite well. The Pro-Wash cycle (auto soil sense) seems to work qukite well. Kudos to both Home Depot and Kitchenaid (Maytag) for standing behind their product. Somehow, the door of the dishwasher was damaged in transit and I didn't see it until after the dishwasher was installed (self-installed). There's a protective plastic bag over the door that I didn't remove until the last stage of installation so didn't see the dent until then. Kitchenaid agreed to order the new front panel and have it installed, no problem. While happy with Home Depot's response as well, in the end, it would have been quicker to have contacted Kitchenaid directly and not involve HD at all.

Unit has wheels for back legs and adjustable front legs. Unit is exceptionally quiet. Normal wash cycle is quite long but Express wash seems to do the same cleaning but quicker. Have only owned for a week but after several washes, all came out clean, dry, and no residual stains. I love the adjustable top rack - can now fit long stemmed glasses on top when necessary or big items such as cookie sheets on bottom when necessary. Overall quite satisfied. Only complaint: The LED lights used to identify the cycle are quite bright and make reading the writing on the door difficult - with time, I'll know what they are by memory but now I have to put my finger on the light itself in order to read what is written behind it!

Please Do not buy any KitchenAid Dishwasher, I purchased Model KDFE104DSS3 in June 2016, it is showing rust on front and inside. Called KitchenAid since it is in Warranty period, the Technician came and informed me he can't do anything, I need to call Whirlpool and gave me the phone number to call. There are around 10 spots on Stainless Steel Dishwasher that are showing Rust. Under no circumstance Stainless Steel is supposed to catch / show Rust. I am in process of contacting Whirlpool, will update my review. Pictures are uploaded. These pictures are taken after the Technician tried his best to remove rust with his chemicals / WD40 etc. I have taken bunch of pictures of all, not sure how many I will be able to upload. Also it is true that the front facing buttons are extra sensitive, we stand close and if any button gets touched very slightly the Dishwasher comes in action. Hope this Review will help someone take right decision before they purchase a Dishwasher.

It's such a nice improvement to the kitchen. It runs quietly, uses a whole lot less water than the old one, and the dishes are sparkling clean. I love the adjustable shelves that roll in and out easily, even when packed with dishes. There is also a nice improvement to the older model, a removable rinse-able filter to keep the drain clear of obstructions.

Had this dishwasher for 3 years, and today the main board went beserk and broke. Infinite problems with this thing....from the cheaply made rack and filters. I had to replace the wheels constantly. Overpriced and low value.
