      Terrible

      Posted

      Consumer affairs review KA dishwasher KDTE204GPSO Purchased at Best Buy in Nov 2017. Doesn't dry dishes at all even with 2 heat cycles, takes 3 hours or more for any cycle except express wash. This is NOT saving energy. My machine has a problem with the computer- this terrible design requires you to press start if you put dishes in mid cycle, which is a terrible design because people forget to start it again, mine is intermittently having the issue of not starting at all when I do this. It beeps and then I have to cancel/ drain and start a whole new cycle. Even though I purchased an expensive extended warranty with Best Buy, because it has a one year warranty I am stuck with dealing with Kitchen Aid for the first year. They sent someone out once who barely did anything and said nothing is wrong. I called again and this time was told I may be charged a fee if nothing functional is wrong. Last time he found a loose arm so I guess I was not charged that time due to that. So KA is claiming owner observed computer failures are not functional problems which they acknowledge. I was told to take a video of it, really? Why dont you stand behind your products KA? I wish I had returned it immediately when the problem started, it is a brand new machine with a computer problem from the get go and I’m being given the run around by everyone. The resolution specialist said he would waive a service charge this time and then said when they come if they try to charge me, call KA and they will waive it, for real? I’m not getting on the phone to argue about waiving a fee that shouldn't be charged, just waive it and diagnose what is wrong. I wish I had never bought this expensive supposedly high end machine. Not happy with it at all. I need sterilized dishes due to celiac so now I must wait 4 hours for dishes that come out wet with continued computer issues. I was ill and so was my cat when this started so I was too exhuasted to deal with it then and we also had to return a terrible washing machine purchased at the same time at BB sale. Give me back my GE please. Never again will I purchase KA. Waiting for BB store to call to see if they will help at all. Noy holding my breath. Read reviews before purchaing appliances especially with all the new energy efficient machines which no longer do the job and computerized elctronics which cause problems and then the comapny refuces to acknowledge when you have a brand new faulty product.

      Cleans well, dries okay, quiet, looks nice

      When our 18 year old Kitchenaid dishwasher finally died, we looked at every option we could find for a replacement. It's in an open space, so it had to be quiet. Drying was of paramount importance, so we ruled out units without a drying feature. We looked at the Best Buy models since they were priced much better, but with free installation and a price match, this worked out to be almost the same price. Although this one is supposed to dry, it's only okay on that function. Using powder detergent, a rinse aid (which I really didn't want to do since they're toxic) and the highest possible settings, dishes come out fairly dry. Not as dry as they did with our decrepit unit, but acceptable. Will experiment with vinegar in place of the rinse aid when it runs out. This unit does clean really well, and it's very quiet and reasonably attractive. I'm a little worried about the hint the installer gave me about only pulling from the center of the handle to open the door, because the latch tends to fail. So far it seems fine, but we're trying to make sure to close it lightly rather than forcing the latch to shut unless we're running it. The extra rack on the top is nice, especially for things like lids to Pyrex bowls. It does require the middle rack to be on the lower setting in order to fit most of our glasses, which makes it a little harder to load. Installation was quick and the installers were excellent--on time, pleasant and efficient. Overall happy with the purchase, not quite 5 stars based on price and drying capability.

      This dishwasher replaced a dishwasher that was some years old. It was put in to sell the house as the prior owners were a bit annoyed they lost their house. I digress, the washer was absolutely excellent! IT has cleaned the dishes so thoroughly, they are looking brand new, out of the box fresh! This is the best appliance purchase I have made in years, with the right amount of bells and whistles! You can't go wrong with this washer!

      This a sleek design and looks great but most importantly works well. No need to wash your plates of food before you put it in - it gets everything off. One drawback is the top doesn't allow big cups like 32oz cups but that is because it has a cool rack on top for those tiny things that always get lost. It is SUPER quiet. i highly recommend

      Non-adjustable lower rack

      For the money, this dishwasher really should have some sort of adjustable lower rack. It's impossible to wash one gallon jugs, for example. However, it has the third rack and smudge-free front.

      Works well, but it doesn't have any extra feature. The racks are just basic.

      This dishwasher makes washing dishes a breeze and the adjustable racks help was bigger pots.
