Customer Reviews

Front Control Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub, 7 Options, 40 dBA is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is it really on? Bought this in May. My two concerns were 1- quiet enough to hear conversation and TV 2- I wanted to see what cycle was running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch Love this dishwasher super silent and cleans fabulously [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2017-10-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from KitchenAid Reputation I bought this dishwasher based on several factors: I had a KitchenAid dishwasher in a previous house and loved it and Consumer Reports had it very highly rated. For the first two years of use, it has worked wonderfully, but the last month, the top rack kept coming off the rollers. Upon closer inspection, it was found to be broken plastic pieces on the rollers that had broken. Since I had bought the 5 year extended warranty through the company that I bought the dishwasher, I called and they ordered a new top rack roller kit that was easily obtained and installed. My only complaint is that if the company had already made a replacement kit with metal pieces, why didn't they send out a recall or replacement pieces to those that had already purchased this dishwasher. The dishwasher does a fantastic job in washing the dishes. It is extremely quiet. Otherwise, I love this dishwasher and would buy another. But, prior to purchase I will check out for plastic parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than advertized It was time to replace our 25yr old dishwasher so after some research online and reading reviews we selected KitchenAid. It is so quiet if not for the lights we would not know it was running. Lots of space and does a great job. No more washing dishes before we load dishwasher. Better than advertized!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Service every 14 months, yes just after the warranty I have had this machine 2 years and it has required 3 service calls during that time with only weekly use.
