Thank you for giving the opportunity to rate this machine! First of all I do love that high end model has a built in grinder! And it is quiet, as well. That’s the upside. The downside, however is that if we don’t scrape clean or soak our dishes, food gets baked on. We use Cascade, though I’d rather use something more earth friendly, and we heat up the water on the tap before turning it on. I just think if one is to spend $1000 on a machine, it should clean flawlessly.

    Remodeled kitchen
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been in the appliance repair business for over 40 years and Kitchen aid has been my go to appliance. Nothing is bulletproof but I have found this has been the most consistent in quality and service.

      Cleans Well and Very Satisfied
      (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) We bought it because our last dishwasher was also Kitchenaid and it worked well. We needed a dishwasher replacement ASAP and due to Covid19, we would have to wait months for one if we ordered one, so this was a floor model. We are pleases with our purchase. It is super quiet, has all the functions you would need and cleans really well even on well water. I don't think the window is useful other than a conversation piece. It's not like you can turn the light on and watch the dishes wash, but when the door is open the light does come on and believe it or not, this is actually super helpful. Really easy to see to load and unload! Otherwise, when the cycle is done the light will come on for about 10 minutes to signal you that it is done. That is really not needed as it had the word "clean" illuminated and an audible signal also sounds. My last Kitchenaid did have a 3rd rack which this one doesn't and I DO miss that.

        Best Dishwasher Ever owned!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought 2 months ago to replace 10 year old KitchenAid that quit working. Great features and quietest dishwasher I’ve ever had. May cost little more than some but well worth it. Going forward will not even consider buying anything except a KitchenAid!

          No you dont NEED the window, but why not have it?
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Coming from a 6 year old 47DB Bosch. This has been in about 1 week or so, so i cant speak to durability and longevity. It is Quite unless its partial load, then you hear the water hit the door/window but it still hard to notice. At 44DB its shockingly very quiet and efficient with a normal load. I use the express wash with no dry cycle because i always set the timer for 4 to 6 hours delay after dinner cleanup then it washed over night. By morning, its VERY clean & dry. The only standing water is on top of the coffee cups. I think the other setting are all over 2 hours. The express is under 1 hr and all that you need. With that said, i always immediately rinse my dishes after use, i use Cascade Power Dry and Finish Powerball. I am impressed...I do however, wish you could turn the light on while washing. I'm surprised with a window that we wouldn't have that option. The inside racks, you can not rotate flat if you need to lay something down. With that said, I wash everything including all pots and pans, so that may be just me that likes to have things flat sometimes... So basically 2 minor quirks that really are not bad and do NOT impede functionality in ANYWAY. I purchased this machine KNOWING these things. My husband wanted the window... we got the window... With that being said, i LOVE the LED lights in this Machine that come on for 10 min at the end of the cycle & when you open the door. You don't realize you need a light in you washer until you have one! We have the KitcheAnid low profile Microwave & the kitchenAid single door Gas free standing range now added this dishwasher, the refrigerator is next, I am happy!

            Super QUIET!!!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We've been using this now for a couple months. We've had a Kitchen Aid double drawer, and Bosch in the recent past. This is my FAVORITE so far. Easy to load. Like the single flatware bin to lift out and put silverware away quickly. Cleans excellent and you don't even know its there. Thanks Kitchen Aid!!!

                It has been my great misfortune to be stuck with this GARBAGE! I have had the dishwasher for all of 6 months. The Kitchen Aid repairman will make his third appearance day after tomorrow. This time it’s because the rubber gasket has come off, for no apparent reason. Other reasons that the repairman has been here are: the dishwasher does NOT CLEAN ADEQUATELY, unless you actually wash them first so, the only purpose for owning this dishwasher is to sanitize, otherwise clean dishes. Normal scraping does not prepare the dishes. Additionally, the dishwasher is extremely difficult to start. The button is not at all sensitive and requires several attempts. Also, I cannot recall how many times I thought that I had started the dishwasher, only to go unload it a few hours later, to see that it had not started. The light lights, but nothing happens. The repairman did confide in me that a Bosh is the only brand that he would recommend. I HAVE AIRED ALL OF THIS INFORMATION TO THE MAYTAG/KITCHEN AID CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES, TO BE IGNORED. Please see my photo:

                  Amazing cleaning, and so quiet!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We tested it by loading the top with containers that were coated with cheese from super-gooey leftover macaroni and cheese. Washed on just normal cycle and wow! I'm a believer. I wish I hadn't waited so long to upgrade. Every time I use it I say "I love our dishwasher!"

                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Works great! Dishes come out so clean. This model is super quiet, can barely hear it when running. The look is super clean and sharp looking.
