Super quiet
(This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Purchased this dishwasher a month ago and it is the best ever. So quiet that without the running lights we wouldn't know it was on. Does a great cleaning job too. I have never washed wine glasses in any previous dishwashers but with the wine glass racks now it is safe to do so. It also blends in nicely with our new counter, floor and painted cabinets.

      I love the no handle in my way and the 3rd top tray. That's about it. It cleans the dishes, but the cycles are sooooo long!!! I did a light cycle and it was over 2 hours! I haven't even tried the normal cycle, I don't have time for this. I just use the Express cycle without a drying cycle. The top tray is just a little too close to the top so only flat items can go there, forget a spatula it gets stuck. Then the middle tray is disastrous! You can lower it and you can fit most items in it, but you can't have anything like a dinner plate on the bottom so I keep it up and struggle with how to put a normal drinking glass or a Rubbermaid container with a lid in and not have it hit the top tray. I have given it time (2 months) to adjust, but I don't think I'll ever buy another dishwasher with a 3rd/top tray!

        Great and gorgeous! Phenomenal tool!
        We have used our KichenAid Proscrub dishwasher for nearly a year, and my husband and I still remark on how happy we are with our purchase. Anyone with grandkids needs one of these. It cleans beautifully and is very quiet. The interior is well organized and the exterior is sleek and handsome. Great options, great design, great product!

          Beautiful and efficient!
          I love the power scrub function and loading or unloading the dishwasher is now a excuse to touch this piece of art...I love the design and the clean lines, but the best part of this machine is the fact that it is quiet, I mean very quiet...I usually forget that it is on even when I'm only 6 feet away from the dishwasher, since we have a open floor plan kitchen and living room...you can have people siting in your island and not even notice the dishwasher running! It's amazing!!!

              OMG.....LOVE IT!!!!
              We've had this dishwasher for about a month now and it works great! Super quiet, washes very well and looks great. We had a Kitchenaid dishwasher previous to this one for close to 15 years and I am confident this one will last as long. Oh yeah, love the third rack on top for cooking utensils, lids and covers. I highly recommend it!!

                Quiet, efficient dishwasher! Easy to install, I did it myself - the directions are very good for once. I've installed 6 or 7 dishwashers over the years and this one was the easiest by far. The little silverware tray at the top is a super bonus. Assembled in USA is nice to know too...

                  DO NOT BUY
                  This product is a piece of junk. It will not clean dishes. I have been very dissatisfied and had the motor replaced and it still did not fix the issues. I have been told it is the hard water. I have to scrub each dish and basically clean it before it goes in. The soap does not even come out of the dispenser.

                    LEAKED WITHIN 2 WEEKS
                    I bought two Kitchenaid appliances--dishwasher and refrigerator--for my newly-renovated kitchen. The refrigerator was dead on arrival. It never worked. The dishwasher was defective and leaked within two weeks of installation, water-soaking and ruining the new baseboards. I am still dealing with Kitchenaid for damages.
