Questions & Answers

Does anyone experience a buzzing noise?

I just had this dishwasher installed yesterday. Yes, it is much quieter than my 12 year-old GE. But has anyone noticed a "buzzing" noise during the wash and/or rinse cycles? I just need to know whether or not this is normal. Thank you for your answers.

Is installation for the KitchenAid dishwasher available, and if so, what is the cost?

Asked by: Thomas
Installation cost can vary depending on local requirements for permits. Installation is not available in all areas. When adding the dishwasher to the cart, you will be provided the available installation options in your area and the current pricing.

I have cabinets on either side of the dishwasher. Are they likely to get covered in moisture from the steam exhaust created by the ProDry option?

Asked by: Concerned
So far we have not had that experience - so far they has not been any evidence of moisture on the surrounding cabinets

Architect Series II Top Control Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub, Ultra-Fine Filter, 43 dBA is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 2565.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Kitchenaid Architect Series II dishwasher began leaking immediately after installation due to... The Kitchenaid Architect Series II dishwasher began leaking immediately after installation due to a warped/defective upper air vent on the inside of the door. Home Depot would not exchange the unit since the defect was not reported within 48 hours. Kitchenaid would not replace it because their policy stated once the unit is installed they will not exchange unless the unit is irreparable. It has been over 30 days and 2 repair appointments since delivery was taken and I still don not have a functioning dishwasher. I have owned Kitchenaid appliances for over 30 years and am disgusted in their lack of customer care and service. I will no longer purchase any Kitchenaid appliances nor will I make any large purchases from Home Depot and will recommend other do the same. - Extremely Dissatisfied Customer.

I did a lot of research before selecting this dishwasher, including bringing my larger dishes and stemware to the store to see how they loaded in the machine. In the store, all was well. I've now had the machine since early November 2016 (9 months) and I am disappointed with it for several reasons. My large ceramic plates have become chipped. Wine glasses come out with lip-mark stains still on them and for all the 'pro-wash' and 'pro-scrub' features, dishes, cups and glassware still come out with food stains. The dishwasher I gave up was 20 years old and had a far superior loading system and the overall cleaning was better. I have read the loading instructions multiple times, tried loading things differently and leaning them over so they don't tip or fall into each other, try not to overload the machine, all to no avail.

Originally, I gave this dishwasher a great review when I bought it in 2014 because it was very quiet and it still is as well as it still does a pretty good job cleaning the dishes. That's about as good as it gets though. One would think that for a fairly expensive dishwasher that it's last more that 2 1/2 years but the motor gave out three months ago for a $500 repair. I didn't buy an extended warranty originally as I thought I was already paying for a better product - was I wrong. Further, most of the the dish racks and related parts need to be replaced. Trying to get replacements is a nightmare - I've been waiting for months. Then they try to tell you that the rack components/parts aren't warranted - only the racks are. Well as a consumer, I bought the racks as a whole, not in separate parts - infuriating. I found out that Kitchenaid products are now made by Whirlpool - what a shame as Kitchenaid USED to stand for real quality. We've had terrible experiences with other Whirlpool products - avoid them like the plague.

We bought this dishwasher as part of our kitchen remodel because it was quiet and highly rated. We're surprised at the high ratings as the unit we received does not clean the dishes. Even with pre-rinsing dishes come out dirty every load; we've tried different settings and have not been able to get a successful load yet. We're probably going to exchange this dishwasher and hope the replacement actually cleans dishes.

We've had this dishwasher for eight months, and overall are happy with the purchase. It is quiet, and does a good job. We had it delivered, and I assisted the HomeDepot recommended installer put it. Installation went smoothly. My only complaint was that the front tarnished and would not get clean. I've had other dishwashers (Bosch, Electrolux) and have other stainless steel appliances in this kitchen. They are fine, and clean easily. Even my BBQ grill outside can be cleaned. There is something about the quality of the material. I've used Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish for years, and it did the job for those other appliances. For this dishwasher, I tried multiple applications, including letting the Weiman's sit on the surface for a minute or two. I live in Hawaii, so I figured it was the climate. But as I said, the other appliances are fine, including the outdoor grill. Before writing a review, I contacted Kitchenaid customer support. They suggested using Affresh. I was skeptical, but ordered some wipes just to be fair (from Amazon, since it's not available in stores on our island). The pictures included show the difference in using Affresh. No rubbing, just light wiping, essentially just applying the fluid on the surface. My minor gripe is that that Amazon only offers the wipes on Prime, so if I buy the spray, I have to pay for shipping. So, there is something not quite up to par on the door material, at least in our climate here in Hawaii, but at least there's a product available that will compensate for that.

It worked great, cleaned well, and was very quiet. Last week it just stopped working. Had a repair man come to house to diagnose the problem and discovered that the pump motor was broke. With labor and parts it will cost me close to $500 to get it fixed. It is only 1 1/2 years old and out of warranty. My last dishwasher was still working after 15 years and it was an inexpensive one. I switched over to stainless steel appliances so I needed to get a new one. Thought kitchen aid was a good, reliable brand. I was wrong.

As advertised , extremely silent ! 43 dBA 'sounded' like a good number , but it really is , this dishwasher makes less noise than our fridge. Nothing special to report about installation, was reasonably easy. Note that you have to provide your own power cord. Dishes are very clean. The Pro-dry does a good job at removing all humidity , which is good for a second home if you want to leave the dishes in from one weekend to the next. Note that the Pro-dry vent is on the left side of the front door , so it is unaffected by enclosing the washer. Only small drawback , lots of fingerprints on the top of the stainless door.

This is my first Kitchen Aid major appliance bought to replace a 20 year old GE dishwasher that came with my house. It is SUPER QUIET (can't tell it is running without looking at display)! Our old dishwasher cleaned dishes well, but this new one takes it to a new level. The small status display on the front is a must to determine if the unit is running and when done because it is so quite. Time will tell if the racks hold-up from rusting (a big problem in my last dishwasher). At least they have a 5 year warranty so I am hopeful. Oh, if your installing this yourself (as I did), don't ignore the "optional parts" listing in the installation guide. You WILL need them and they aren't readily available at home improvement stores so plan ahead.
