Very satisfied: great quality machine

By Mike

from Vernon, CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

This unit replaced a twenty year old Maytag. Have used it daily now for a couple of weeks.

Observations:
-Very quiet machine. Like, really quiet. Love it.
-Love the top pullout "third tray" for awkwardly shaped knives, spatulas and the like. Hadn't expected it to be so useful.
-Initially felt like less capacity than prior machine, but there is really more usable space in this dishwasher, and greater flexibility in how you can configure racks.
-I like the top controls a lot. This is first dishwasher I've had with the top controls.
-Stainless door has proved easy to keep fingerprint free and spotless with a spritz of Windex and a wipe with a cotton bar mop.
-Feels like quality construction. Door action good, racks slide smoothly.

To sum up: works great, really cleans dishes better than old machine, dries better, super quiet, and zero regrets buying this model.

Next: need the KitchenAid refrigerator....

Disappointed!!

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

We did a lot of research on line comparing any and all makes & models that appeared to fit our needs. We were willing to spend the money necessary to make a wise, long-term decision once we elected it was time to replace our 20-year old Maytag.

We went to 3 different stores to look at the various options in person. Made notes along the way. Yes, price was a factor. But, more in comparing what one retailer offered on a particular make/model vs. another outlet on the same unit.

One key factor of interest to us was the quietness rating. With this KitchenAid, we did achieve that.

However, after 7 months, I think my wife would sacrifice that to get her old Maytag back.

We are currently waiting for a new "board" for this unit - due this coming week. Hopefully, it will resolve issues like the detergent pod not completely dissolving; that detergent pod 'door' not opening all the time; evidently (our technician feels) our rinse aid is being used at an extremely high rate; dishes not dried - no matter what setting or combination of settings we select - even after 14 hours in the washer!; having to hand dry the utensils; slickness on the utensils; a lousy job of cleaning & drying anything that's not a standard dish, bowl, etc..; any plastic ware you wash - be prepared to do some additional hand drying - and NOT just under lips, edges, etc..; the way the dinner plates all fall over on one another; ...

... well, you get our point.

The really sad and frustrating thing is this: this is a top of the line brand and unit. To get these results is alarming. We've got a KitchenAid dual oven with convection option in the top. Sure would have been nice for the high-end kitchen design retailer we bought it from in Atlanta to have mentioned the fact that with the convection option - the unit would cook at 25-50 degrees lower than desired and selected.

We also own a Whirlpool refrigerator and washer & dryer. So, we know our way around their line-up of brands. Won't inve

Everything About it is Great!

By Terry S

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

We got out 39 dBA with Pro Scrub Option about a year ago when we remodeled our kitchen. I thought I wanted a Haier, but the sales woman convinced me the Kitchen Aid was a better machine. It cost more than I had ever paid for a dishwasher before but we wanted to get an appliance that would last. (When the kids were growing up and living at home, a low price was much more important). Our sales person was right and I am so glad we listened to her recommendation. Cost was comparable to a Haier but I also love that this is made in America. This dishwasher is incredible. It looks great and I love the features. The controls are out of sight on top of the door. The interior is stainless steel and is HUGE! The Pro Scrub really does live up to it's name. I have put in some casserole dishes and plates that I truly didnt think would get clean, but they did! You just put them on the lower rack in the back and the jets really do their job. I absolutely love the little flat drawer at the very top for kitchen tools like knives, serving spoons etc and other flat items. All that is great but the very best part is that THIS DISHWASHER IS ALMOST COMPLETELY SILENT! We did not have this installed with any extra insulation. If there is no noise in the house, I can hear a very soft swishing when close to the dishwasher, only slightly louder when the Pro Scrub is used. If anyone is talking or there is a TV on in the house, or if you're more than just a couple feet away from it, you hear nothing! The only "complaint" I have is my own fault - I can't seem to come up with a quick, streak-free way to clean fingerprints/spills off the front panel. This is seriously the best appliance money I have ever spent.

Very, Very Quiet.

By Sammy

from Lincoln, Ca.

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

We were looking for a quiet dishwasher because ours is positioned right in the middle of our kitchen/family/tv rooms. I am very pleased with this machine. It cleans great. It has a lot of little extras including the top drawer for large utensils and flat items, an adjustable top rack with wine glass keepers, and more. The tub is stainless steel and it has many wash/dry/sterilizing options.

The 2 things that I don't like are that it smells when it sits closed up for a few days while it gets loaded with dirty dishes and the silverware rack is positioned along the side of the bottom rack and the silverware rubs and catches on the rubber door seal.

Nice machine

By Joe the plumber

from Willamette Valley Oregon

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Built-In Dishwasher:

We are very happy with this machine so far. Did not realize a wash cycle takes 2 1/2 hours but just requires a little planning and trust in my plumbing skills!!
You will love how quiet this machine is. You have to reall listen for it to hear it.
It's also Very Easy to accidentally touch the buttons when the door is open but it beeps so you know you did it again!
