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.

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?

KitchenAid Top Control Tall Tub Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub, 43 dBA, Silver is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 4084.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from My barely 2 year old model KDTM354DSS top rack fell off ! Problem is a materials selection and in... My barely 2 year old model KDTM354DSS top rack fell off ! Problem is a materials selection and innate design flaw and Whirlpool/KitchenAid customer support has not even replied to my request to replace the poorly designed Mounting Rail See photos below to support my accusation. The plastic Dishwasher Rack Adjuster became brittle after just two years. The tiny nub (4 of them) in the 3rd photo down is all that supports the top rack to the pull out rails. The rail became brittle, pulled from the Rack Adjuster allowing the entire top rack to come tumbling out ! Engineers who design dishwashers could have and should have selected a plastic that could withstand the admittedly challenging environment in the dishwasher. They failed to do so and it cost me > $48 (including shipping)to replace these poorly designed parts. Shame on them ! Someone in their design staff deserves a severe reprimand and may more. Aside from this major showstopper the dishwasher is the most efficient and quiet dishwasher I have ever owned. An excellent product with a fatal flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far,so good.... We were hesitant to spend $900 for a dishwasher (on sale), but in the Consumer Reports ratings and in the other on-line reviews, this one consistently got top marks. Initially, we were going to purchase a Bosch, but learned that none of their models have a heating element for drying, and that dishes came out wet was a consistent complaint in reviews. We extensively reviewed KitchenAid and Kenmore, and through trial and error by loading plates and wine glasses into store display models, determined that a third rack was more of a nuisance than necessity. While our initial budget was in the $600-$700 range, at the end of our process, we decided to spend the additional money for what was being touted in impartial reviews as the best. At this point, we have only had it a month, and it has met our expectations for $900 dishwasher of cleaning and drying thoroughly, being simple to operate, and being very quiet. We would expect nothing less, and have not been disappointed.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed so far I did a lot of research and comparison shopping before landing on this model. Unfortunately, I've been pretty disappointed in its performance so far. I was hoping the shorter/lighter/express wash cycles would be enough for a lot of my daily dishwashing needs, but it was hard to tell if they did anything at all. The normal cycle was better and cleaned most of the dishes, but even the Heavy/ProScrub cycles missed particles of food on both dishes and flatware. I also had assumed this model would fit all or most of my large dishes, but I've already discovered the lower rack does not fit one of my saucepan covers (even with the top rack in the highest position). Maybe I'll discover a trick to make the appliance more effective, but so far, I've been really disappointed in the performance and the value. I would probably not buy another KitchenAid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Home Installation was WORST I've ever encountered I don't know about the dishwasher itself and I would gladly submit a review for the installation component itself except there is no provision for this. Be very careful before you select home installation. Our installers showed up a day late. They didn't call to give us any heads up but just showed up at the end of their day shaking their heads saying they couldn't install it even before they laid eyes on the dishwasher! They first said they couldn't put it under a countertop (seems baldly false) and then, when pressed, said there was a leak. We had been waiting without a working dishwasher for two weeks and when I challenged their assertion that there was a leak the installer simply said "do you want me to leave it here or not? I am not installing it". You can readily get the same dishwasher from a store that rhymes with Rose (hint, starts with an 'L') for precisely the same price. I have now cancelled my order with Home Depot and I will be buying it and all other appliances from said alternate company.

On the positive side it cleans effectively and is indeed very quiet. My issue with KitchenAid is that they have overcomplicated the design with attachments and controls that most people will never use. I wish they would offer simpler models. Once you figure out the basics of the controls and remove all of the attachments, the dishwasher functions fine, though the bottom rack rollers seem a little flimsy and despite being the exact same dimensions as my previous KitchenAid, I can fit fewer dishes. Also, taller items that fit in the previous dishwasher on the lower rack do not fit in this one. One particular item that almost caused me not to purchase KitchenAid was that they have moved the vent from the top to the side. For a built in, this means hot air vents to the adjacent cabinet. People have reported issues with this damaging their cabinets. I have heard, but not confirmed, that the main problem is if you have non solid wood cabinets such as thermofoil cabinets. My cabinets are solid wood so I took the chance. It appears to be ok but I suppose time will tell.

I wish I could do the same. We bought this dishwasher July 2016 because of the good consumer reports. It worked well, and then over 2 years in, it stopped working. Apparently it was the main control board, so we had it replaced. It washed once and then the next day the touchpad stopped working. Random flashing lights and erratic button response. Now we are trying to get a replacement touchpad (If it's still available!) I think this is unacceptable for a machine that is under 3 years old. It seems that some machines are built faulty right from the start and it's just bad luck if you happen to purchase one of them. It's too much of a gamble, and I would not want to risk buying this model, or in fact a Kitchenaid, because it is clearly an unreliable brand. This machine was not cheap, so I would have expected it to last longer. Very disappointed, and I would not recommend it because of the risk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not in love yet... I had been interested in this model since reading its top rating in Consumer Reports, and I felt very satisfied when I got it on sale. It replaced a 15-year-old Bosch, which was still washing dishes well but occasionally leaked on the kitchen floor and was looking its age. My husband installed the new Kitchen Aid fairly easily (see below). It looks great and has as many features and is as convenient to load as the Bosch, but so far the dishes don't seem to come out perfectly clean. It really surprised me since almost all of CR's top-rated dishwashers are supposed to do a great job of actually washing the dishes, so I didn't think that was going to be an issue. But some glasses come out with spots and pots and cooking spoons or spatulas come out with some food still on them even when using the "tough" or "Power Scrub" cycles. I'm using rinse agent and the recommended dishwashing tablets. I'm not wishing for my old machine back yet, but I wish I were more in love with the new one.
