Answers

Hello Cinderella! The Heat Dry option will not perform as well without rinse aid. For most water conditions, the factory setting will give good results. However, if you are experiencing poor drying performance, you may want to try a higher setting. Turn the arrow adjuster inside the dispenser to change the rinse aid setting.

Fatal flaw: Noise level! Avoid if you are seeking quiet :(
The KitchenAid KDTM404KPS looks great with a nice clean minimalistic front and no visible controls, and it has a fantastic internal design with a highly useful 3rd rack. However the KitchenAid 2020 dishwasher line has a fatal flaw which may be a may or break for some people, and it's the amount of noise it makes. After several months and many washes, I unfortunately have to report that the dishwasher is great in all aspects except for the noise level. It looks great, it cleans very well and dries fantastically. The 3rd rack is extremely useful for cups and small items, freeing up a ton of room on the bottom 2 racks. The washing and drying does take a while, on average 3+ hours, however you'll find that pretty much all new dishwashers take an extended amount of time due to the water saving functions. However for all of the great things about this dishwasher, the noise is what almost caused me to return. It's simply loud. While rated at a very quiet 44dB, there is a constant motor noise during the entire wash cycle. It sounds like a very small lawn mower running near the bottom of the unit. The noise reverberates through the room and other rooms in the house. When the washing is taking place, you can hear it on 3 levels of our house. I've spent a great deal of time trying to determine if the noise is intentional or a defect, and from everything I've learned it's simply how the 2020 KitchenAid dishwashers are designed. This is from speaking from others online with the same model and confirming the issue, as well as contacting KitchenAid to be told that they believe it's just how the new models are. I've spoken to several people who have had service technicians come check out the sound, and even replace parts in an effort to make it quieter but it never gets resolved. Since we were so satisfied with the design and the cleaning and drying performance, we took matters into our own hands to try and make it better. I installed a good deal of additional insultation around the bottoms of the sides, all underneath the unit as well as behind the kick panel. I added small carpet feet underneath the dishwasher legs to reduce motor vibration on the floor. Essentially I tried to deaden the sound as much as possible. This has made the unit somewhat quieter however not as quiet as many older, louder dishwashers. The photos attached are of the additional insulation. Any reviews that you may read on here or other sites that claim the dishwasher cannot be heard, or is silent, are not true. If your kitchen and house are quiet without the TV and kids making noise, I promise that you will hear the dishwasher running for the hours it takes to wash. Trust what I'm saying as I've invested too many hours into this new, expensive dishwasher and I feel that I owe it to others to warn them of what they are getting themselves into. I even ordered a replacement of the same model as I felt the first one was simply defective, and it was exactly the same. I've recorded a video of the sound if you'd like to experience it: https://youtu.be/1ltKwHtqQws If the sound level isn't the most important to you, then I can recommend this dishwasher. If you are looking for a very quiet upgrade to your current old, loud dishwasher, then I cannot recommend this and would suggest you look into the Bosch brand instead.

This dishwasher is exceptional! Three levels to place dishes makes this extremely efficient. The stainless steel tub is a bonus. It is extremely quiet, sometimes not even sure it is on until I look at the control panel. Control panel is easy to use. Dishes come out very clean, no streaking, smell fresh. Very pleased with this purchase.

Love the 3rd rack
(This review was collected as part of a promotion.) 3rd rack for glasses and cups is a great space saver and why I bought it. I live the height adjustability of the middle rack and the compartments. And the print free finish! I would give this a 5 but find that the glasses on the top don’t seem to get as clean as I like when I am doing a full load. I am one of those stacking freaks so I know I am not blocking any of the jets.

Disappointed
My dishwasher did NOT come with a power cord. The KitchenAid installation video specifies a newly configured 2020 power cord for this dishwasher. BUT IT ISN'T AVAILABLE ANYWHERE! How can I use this new dishwasher without voiding the warranty? The manual specified parts are unavailable!
