Questions & Answers

Is it more difficult to fit taller glasses because there is a 3rd rack?

If you lower the rack will it hit my plates?
Asked by: bun
I do not find this to be the case however if you are finding this to be a concern you can always remove the third rack when washing the taller glasses without having to lower the second rack. The third rack is easily removed (By sliding off to right and left the end caps on the slide) and replaced.

Picture shows a filter in the bottom

This model has the Clean Water Wash System ( there's no need to ever remove and clean the filter). But the picture shows what looks like the removable filter (cup or drum filter) similar to previous models. Does this unit have a removable filter that you don't need to remove? Or, does it have a filter that you cannot and do not need to remove? Or, is the picture wrong, and there is no filter period.
Asked by: nkeller
Please read the specifications again. This model, KDTE254ESS(1, 2, etc...) does not have the Clean Water Wash filter. It has the cylindrical mesh filter in the bottom.

If you mean the third rack, yes, easily.

Will It Heat the Wash Water?

The manual says, before starting the cycle, "Run hot water at the sink nearest your dishwasher until the water is hot." Is this necessary? None of the other brands I'm looking at say anything about this, and neither does the manual for my 25 year old KitchenAid.
Asked by: toolworker
yes - two options for this. Sani-rinse and high temp scrub

24 in. Top Control Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 3426.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kitchen aide dishwasher This is a very quiet dishwasher. Good thing it has a light to let you know that it is on. I like the third shelf and flexibility of all shelves can change middle shelf height and adjust dividers in the lower and middle shelves. So far this was a good choice for us and leaps and bounds better than our previous dishwashers

It is extremely quiet (you can hardly even tell when it is running) and it does a great job cleaning and drying the dishes. I especially like the versatility of the racks since they are very adjustable making it easy to accommodate large or oddly shaped items. The three rollout racks have ball bearing runners which make them roll in and out very smoothly and effortlessly. I'm finding the third top rack (meant mostly for cutlery or other flat items) to not be as useful as I had anticipated. There is so little clearance between the rack and the top of the dishwasher that cooking utinsils such as large spoons, ladles or spaghetti servers, take up too much room in thickness to be able to close the rack. Also If the middle rack is in the raised position, glasses in the middle rack will hit the top rack. And that rack usually needs to be in the raised position in order to accommodate normal sized dinner plates in the bottom rack. Consequently I have simply removed the uppermost rack (which is simple to do). I stored it away in a cabinet incase I should ever want to use it.

HomeDepot was fantastic in dealing with HORRIBLE customer service from the manufacturer. We got a lemon installed. The installation team would not put our old one back in. Instead, we had to wait weeks for a new unit to get delivered. The manufacturer would not make ANY special accommodations at all. They would not work with us on a rush replacement or even a time window other than "next available". I will never ever buy from Maytag (who owns KitchenAid). HomeDepot totally earned my repeat business, but not with this manufacturer.

The build quality is very good and includes drawer style slider rails on the bottom rack (unlike most that have unstable plastic wheels). This model is extremely quiet, which makes a bigger difference than one might anticipate as compared to the typical unit rated at 42 or 46 dB SPL. Racks are flexible, and the mid rack is height adjustable which is a big plus for wine glasses or taller stemware. Cleaning is superb when using good quality detergent pods (this was new for me having used powder for decades). It's important that your water heater is set to at least 130 or more degrees to make sure the pods dissolve properly. Although these new designs take much longer to run than the older dishwashers, the cleaning result is really much better and earns my highest rating. Definitely recommend as a 5 star performer.

It has approximately 50 pitted rust spots forming on the exterior door less than 9 months after installation. I will be doing what I can do rectify the situation, but am not interested in the same model as I'm certain it will have the same issue.

First one was damaged, second one the electronic panel didn't work, hope this one works more than a month. For $1000+ and made in America machine I was hoping for something of better quality, I was really wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from silence is wonderful!!! I do not use my dishwasher much--thus far only 3 times about once per week. I love how quiet it is and find it was easy to install for it was relatively painless transition from old to new. I do have difficulty getting use to the fact it takes longer to do a load of dishes almost 2 hrs if not using the heat drying part or express wash. I have waited till it is full to do a load for this reason. I have no other complaints or issues. I do like the fact if you want heat to dry dishes quick then Kitchenaid is your only choice to get all that you want. and have a top made dishwasher. Really like it.
