    Very disappointing!

    MODEL KDTE204E: I bought this specific model expressly for the third level rack. You may ask yourself "how can anything get clean AND dry on this very thin top shelf way at the top of the dishwasher?" The answer is very simple - IT DOESN'T! I put my flatware on it - I use Cascade Platinum tablets, Cascade Rinse Agent and the heat dry option. (My unit was professionally installed.) I turned the dishwasher on at around 8 pm - the next morning the third rack and everything on it was wet and dirty. Even stainless steel will rust if left soaking in water. My steak knives which are stainless steel from the blade all the way to the handle were rusted and ruined. The other flatware was stained with water marks - I had to use a special cleaner on all of it to get them clean. The other poor design for me on this model is the silverware basket - it is one big unnecessarily HUGE unit that takes up the entire right side of the dishwasher - you cannot separate the compartments or place it anywhere else. The basket itself is way too high. When I put the flatware pieces through the slots they do not hit bottom so just wobble around. So I have to remove the tops and put everything into the baskets clanking around. It also is all wet when I open the dishwasher in the morning. For me this is a lot of wasted space. The top rack on this model has NO options to reconfigure the tines. The sides have a very quirky configuration - I cannot find anything that fits into the oddly shaped angular space so for me it is wasted. The one cup shelf with stemware holder is not secure, impractical and poorly designed in a way that it is hardly functional. It is seated too high on the rack to accommodate a cup of ANY size! Again - for me just wasted space. The bottom rack on this model has just ONE fold-down tine across the back of the unit. I had a horrible time trying to arrange my dishes and pots. I cannot get my coffee pot in there to sit at a slight angle. Also the way the tines are designed, they do not hold the dishes securely. Somehow the dishes are seated very shallow and maybe the tines are a bit too short. Any little movement like sliding the rack into the dishwasher, and the dishes shift one way or another. The bottom rack slides off the track WAY, WAY too easy! The general appearance of this model is quite underwhelming, at least the white model which I chose. The handle which is some sort of brushed meta/chrome finish shows every little fingerprint and requires constant wiping. With the exception of the one fold-down tine on the bottom rack - everything on this model is in a fixed position. It does an O.K. job - nothing over the moon that any other dishwasher in this decibel and price range won't do as well with a premium detergent and rinse agent, but with MANY more options and much more functional.

    We purchased this KitchenAid dishwasher as sort of an "add-on" while searching for a new Microwave when my old one gave up the ghost. We replaced our aging low end Samsung dishwasher with this. My wife really liked the extra features like Pro-Scrub and the additional 3rd rack for flat cutlery. Well after owning this dishwasher for over a mont, and having used it almost everyday since I installed it, it does a really great job cleaning dishes. In hindsight, i would have skipped the 3rd rack as it is a great idea in theory but in practice there is very little space (height) on that rack to place much more than knives and VERY flat utensils. Also, because that rack is located above the normal top rack, you have to be very strategic about the placement and height of glasses or anything over about 9 inches tall if you have the 2nd rack in the top position. Now, yes you can lower the 2nd rack but this causes a significant loss of height space on the bottom rack making it nearly impossible to wash average size dinner plates on the bottom rack. I'm pretty sure this extra 3rd rack is going in a closet somewhere in my house before this months over. So my recommendation is to save a few bucks and go with the KItchenAid that has the normal 2 racks with similar features to this model. But overall, this is 5-Star when it comes to getting your dishes clean and it looks great in stainless installed in the kitchen.

    This machine is made out of good quality elements. Real stainless steal inside and out. Nice looking dishwasher with good cleaning features (so far) Two down sides: I don't think that it is super quite. It is definitely not noisy but my old GE was as quite as this one (it was half price!) Secondly, it needs additional display on the outer surface to understand if the machine is still working or stopped. It is almost impossible to understand whether or not the program you selected ended and it is safe/ready to open the door. There is only one little, tiny lamp (display) that shows same color (blueish white) And it does not go off right after the program ends (this would take for hours!) So you cannot really tell if it is still washing or drying OR already ended. It is really annoying when you need something from the dishwasher. But overall I am not regretful with my purchase.

    This dishwasher is so quiet and does a great job of cleaning dishes/silverware/utensils. I love the top rack for utensils and other flat items. I did a lot of research before ordering this dishwasher. I love it so much more than the old dishwasher we had. My dad has had his KitchenAid dishwasher for 15 years and it still looks and runs great! Hope I have the same luck. The delivery was disappointing because it got changed at the last minute and my husband wasn't home to disconnect the old dishwasher that Best Buy was supposed to haul away. I first refused the new dishwasher but they said they'd come back to get the old one so I agreed to take the delivery. I've called (and you can't talk to anyone in the delivery area direct) and still no luck after 3 weeks of the old dishwasher sitting in our garage. But - regardless - I do love this new dishwasher:)

    Fantastic Dishwasher

    I have had this dishwasher for about a month now and I love it. It is very sleek and very quiet. If it weren't for the indicator light, I wouldn't be able to tell that the dishwasher is running most of the time. I really appreciate the third rack; I was concerned at first that items on the third rack wouldn't get clean, but they always come out sparkling. The pot scrubber setting is a nice bonus and my dishes always come out really clean. The only negative that I've seen so far is that if you use the Pro Wash setting the dishes don't get as clean. But, I think that's a slightly to be expected as the dishwasher is trying to determine how dirty the dishes are. I haven't had any problems getting them clean when I select the settings myself. Additionally, I wish that the third rack could be removed (at least partly) to accommodate taller stem ware. Overall, I highly recommend this dishwasher. It does a great job, and is very quiet.

    Excellent Dishwasher

    So far this has been a great dishwasher. I was replacing my kitchen floor and came upon a leak in my old dishwasher (16 years old) and nearly had my kitchen floor ruined all the way through. It was a good thing that I had it done when I did. I digress. I bought this as a replacement in a hurry, and it came on time and within the time that the delivery call said it would. It's beautiful, quiet, runs smoothly and cleans my dishes. Right now, it's just me and my cats' dishes, my husband is taking care of his mother so I haven't give it much use. The top shelf is interesting and you can't put a lot there, but it's nice to get them out of the way. It does cut down on the room on the second level, but just put taller items on the sides or on the first rack.

    Third Rack disappointing

    I love this dishwasher, it's quiet, the racks are very sturdy and don't fall out but the third rack is such a disappointment! The silverware holder has a plastic top on it that does come off if you don't feel like feeding each piece into the slots one by one. I really had my heart set on a dishwasher with a third rack -- mostly for spatulas, grilling utensils, large spoons, etc and it does NOT fit those items. It's really only for knives and very flat, thin items. The third rack also makes the top rack kind of squished so taller glasses don't fit well and fall over. I believe you can remove the third rack which I will probably end up doing. I would've definitely skipped the third rack option and bought the next step down KitchenAid. Otherwise, this dishwasher is awesome!!

    Big capacity & half load cycle capability

    Had this installed for 1 week and was initially disappointed with dry cycle as there is no electric heating element. Decided to swap it out for Kitchenaid with a heating element which caused moisture buildup on stainless steel tub and dishes/ silverware. However, while waiting for Kitchenaid replacement, I discovered that by selecting "sanitize" and "extra dry"settings" dishes and silverware were bone dry at end of cycle. Another deciding favorable factor was that the Bosch fits flush with cabinets whereas Kitchenaid protrudes at least half inch. This model is a keeper and is super quiet. Recommend running overnight to ensure complete drying. I understand that this unit is manufactured in USA as Kitchenaid promotes itself.
