        Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

        My history: Bought new dishwasher Oct/Nov 2012 -First unit came damaged and dented up in the back -Second unit, I tried to install the dishwasher and the door spring was broken and had to be replaced--several days later fixed - ~June 2013--Several of the lights to show you the selected options burnt out--Tech came out to fix -October 2013--Woke up 2nd morning in a row with the dishwasher leaking out on my brand new wooden floor and Tech came out the following week to fix. Service Rep on the phone told me that when we called on a Friday for the leak that someone couldn't come until next week and our 1 year warranty will end on Monday. Tried to not fix the dishwasher, but they did cover it since we were under warranty. -March 2014--Both roller adjusters have broken and my dishwasher is out of commission again. I am not out of warranty and my parts cost is at about $75. -

          Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

          Our ownership of this product has been mixed. It generally cleans very well. It generally is quiet. However, it's incredibly quirky. Our old dishwasher failed a few months before we began a general kitchen renovation. We bought this unit intending to purchase new Kitchenaid appliances for the remodel. We'd use this dishwasher until we did the remodel and re-install it again later with the new kitchen. Overall, the dishwasher cleans pretty well. It does leave some spotting on glassware, but everything does come out clean with minimal pre-rinsing. It is generally very quiet. However, when it is draining the tub, it frequently has a loud rumble that's very disconcerting. Sometimes it's also impossible to select a cycle. The keypad on the door does not respond to touches and the LEDs do not light. Cycling the circuit breaker seems to resolve this problem. Some of the LEDs also don't light when a cycle is selected. For example, yesterday when I tried to select "Pro dry" the LED only lit dimly. I didn't want to go out to the garage to cycle the circuit breaker and ran it like that. The worst problem is that at the end of a cycle the bottom of the tub is full of water. Quite often the water is fairly dirty. I check the drain and it's clear. Since I can't be sure that the cycle ran correctly and that the dishes are really clean, we re-run it. It will usually work correctly the next time, especially if we choose a different cycle. However sometimes it will fail to drain the tub three or four consecutive washes. Usually in these cases, cycling the circuit breaker seems to "fix" the problem until it occurs again a few days later. We are very happy with the results of the kitchen remodeling, especially with the other appliances, which are Wolf and Subzero. We changed our minds about the appliances when we were in the design phase. But since Subzero doesn't make dishwashers and since this is a fairly expensive dishwasher, we reinstalled it. According to the Kitchenaid parts website, the electronics parts are about $400 plus another one or two hundred for a service call comes awfully close the the point where it might just make more sense to buy something more reliable than a dishwasher that fails after only two years of light usage.

            Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

            We love this dishwasher. The cycles are great. The dishes are very clean. And did I mention IT IS QUIET.!!! The only negative is how carefully you have to be in opening the top rack. The wheel mechanisms on the right and the left that slide the rack in and out are easy to break. So the rack must be opened gingerly with care. The top rack cannot be overloaded with heavy items. It will break the rolling mechanisms when you pull it out as cannot bare much weight.

                  I had kept Viking dishwasher for five years, since I had paid top dollar at that time. However, it has been so many problems: noise, clean factor and some other mechanical problems. Ever since I have replaced it to Kitchen Aid, all these problems disappeared. I enjoy this dishwasher very much. Also, appearance of this product is great.

                      This product was purchased not only for it being rated highly by Consumer Reports, but because it is extremely quiet, which was a very important factor. My previous two dishwashers in thirty six years were not very quiet and this one makes me forget that it is even running, which is fantastic!!!

                          The installation was very easy although I did have some difficulty in installing the front panel. The unit itself is excellent and the performance is better than any dishwasher I have ever had. The dishes and glasses come out sparkling and dry and the washing options are very helpful.

                                  Easy to use. Love that the controls are out of reach of my toddler. Washes great-no need to rinse dishes. Like the adjustable top shelf and little top pull out shelf.
