    Fussy to Load and Use

    Posted

    It’s quiet and gets the dishes clean. It’s also fussy to load and use, makes poor use of lower rack space, and uses more energy than the 25 year old KitchenAid that it replaced. I don’t recommend it. I deliberately left food residue on dishes and silverware and let it sit for days. Everything was cleaned spotlessly using the recommended PowerWash cycle, and almost totally dried on the heat plus fan cycle except for the bottoms of some cups. The silverware basket’s slotted cover is fussy to load and unload, with our utensils only fitting in about half of the various-sized slots. We’ve removed the cover. The basket only fits on the side, so the door has to be opened fully to put silverware in most sections of the basket. I wish I could move it to the front and put two rows of plates all the way across behind it. The recommended three rows of plates illustrated in the manual only works if the plates are less than 7” across. 12 place settings - my foot. The touch buttons on top of the door are another fussy irritant. It’s hard to close the door without touching one or more of them. Our unit is mounted under a counter with a couple of inches overhang, enough to block the time display when the door is closed. Our old dishwasher used 0.58 kWh per load, with air dry. Although this one is rated EnergyStar, it uses 0.69 kWh just for the wash cycle. The recommended heat dry puts it up to about 1 kWh. A big drawback is the lack of a fan-only dry, which would be more efficient than the power-hungry heat dry. If neither of the heat dry options is selected, it leaves the dishes to try to dry inside the sealed cabinet. That said, they got fairly dry once the cabinet was opened, except for the bottoms of cups and mugs which hold some water. Another irritant: According to the instructions, we’re expected to run the water until hot before starting a cycle on this supposedly “automatic” dishwasher. I wonder if this is to save it from being dinged on EnergyStar’s rating for wasting water or heating power. KitchenAid says it will heat the water somewhat, but my watt meter showed no difference in early cycle heating between a hot and a cold water supply. So you’ve got to either go through a manual step and waste water, or start the wash with cold water. Again, it doesn’t seem to hurt the cleaning power, so my recommendation is to forget this instruction.

    Still leaking, weekly repairs, will not replace.

    I'm not one to write bad reviews, but I have never had such a bad experience with a company. We love our Kitchen Aid mixer, blender, and food processor, and when Consumer Reports recommended this dishwasher, we decided to spend a little extra and get it. It has never worked perfectly, but after the first month it started leaking. We have now had five repair visits for a dishwasher we have had for less than 3 months. Think about having to take off work every week and wait for a repair guy. We have another repair scheduled for this week. I keep asking if this is not normal for your products why not replace this lemon. I am told it is a one year service warranty, and they will keep sending repair people until it is deemed totally inoperable. Can you imagine constantly having to put down rags to catch the spurts of water coming out of your dishwasher, only to be told that there is no end in sight and it is up to them to decide when they sold you a lemon. I am hoping that Best Buy steps in and helps us get a replacement but I still haven't heard back from them. Hopefully they do and I will make sure never to buy a kitchen aid major appliance again. I hope my story will help you not make the same mistake as me.

    Poor job on silverware/Third rack is a waste

    This dishwasher was purchased after doing a fair bit of research, reading reviews, etc. The silverware was almost never fully clean when the cycle was done, even on the highest setting. The other issue was the third rack. I did not realize what a complete waste it was until I tried to put items in. Literally nothing but completely flat items fit (like a Tupperware lid or a flat bread knife). Given those two issues, I ended up returning it to Best Buy and just got the Bosch 800 Series with the MyWay third rack installed yesterday. Only ran that once so I don't want to praise it too much yet. But, I can say for sure that the third rack on the Bosch is so much more useful than the KitchenAid. It fit every conceivable item I could find! I want to let everyone know how great Best Buy was with the return. I anticipated being given a hard time but my experience was just the opposite. It helped that I didn't wait too long (10 days). The process was simple, the sales associate just refunded the entire order and started over with a new order. The KitchenAid was uninstalled and the Bosch was installed two days later. What a relief to not have to live with something that really wasn't working out, especially such an expensive item! Thank you, Best Buy!

    Noisy, died a week after use

    Posted
    HappyWash

    We have an open floor plan so it was important to find a quiet washer. I took a look at Bosch, but wasn’t crazy about the arrangement of tines, and I had read about problems with smell, due to the interior remaining damp. The main reason I got rid of our old washer was a failed heating element which lead to a smelly washer, so no more of that. So I went with this model: stylish, nice features, heating element (two stars for these features). Unfortunately, I found it to be loud. There was always a low level hum from the motor, which sometimes took on a buzzing/vibration (found other reports of this online). Tech came out and said it was normal, but I still think it was loud for a 46dB machine. From what I have read, this machine has not only the circulation motor running, but another motor is always on keeping the profilter clean, and I think the wash arm also runs on a motor instead of water pressure. All these motors contribute to sound. And then the machine died a week later. I changed to another model (KDTE254ESS) which uses the standard filter, a different motor and is perfectly quiet at 39db. You won’t miss the profilter, prodry of this model. I'll post a review for KDTE254ESS as well.

    A Bit Frustrating

    I initially wanted to buy a different KitchenAid model but saw the powerarms on this one and just had to have it. I love the way it makes my dishes sparkling clean and dry (which was very important to me) BUT I ended up removing the third rack after a couple of weeks. I found that if I needed to adjust the upper rack all the way up so I could get larger plates to fit in the bottom rack, I couldn't put my tall glasses in the upper rack due to the third rack being in the way. If I lowered the upper rack for the glasses, I couldn't fit my plates in to the lower rack. I thought about exchanging it but I couldn't find another that I like without going up in price so I opted to remove the third rack. Now everything fits as it should with no frustrations. It is a bit disappointing though because I really liked the idea of that third rack. This is the only reason I didn't give it five stars.

    Looks nice, Works decently, Dries poorly

    We had to replace the dishwasher that was already installed when we bought our home. This KitchenAid looked fancy, and we love our mixer and coffee maker, so we went for it. Loading dishes is a hassle, though. Dishes just seem to fit awkwardly. Drinking glasses don't fit quite right, and you can only get a few to fit on each side. Tall glasses don't fit well at all, even with the basket lowered all the way. We can only fit about half of what we could in our older dishwasher. The biggest problem, though, is drying. Even on pro-dry & heated dry, coffee mugs and food containers (anything with a lip on the bottom) are just full of water. We have to pull out the top rack slowly so the water doesn't slosh off and onto the lower rack and floor. It's also not very fast. Our cycles take about 4 hours each. On the bright side, it does clean well and isn't very noisy. All in all, though, I would have expected better from this product.

    Great DishWasher

    Had a MayTag for may years and l know Kitchenaid also now makes Maytag. That said Maytag lasted for 15 years and did not give up the ghost but just time for replacement! Now the new Kitchenaid! So far real good! Real quiet. Can barely hear it run standing in front of it. Racks are smooth as silk in operation! Controls easy to use! I admit, I was sceptical of “hidden” controls. But even with the door closed, can still be viewed. Wash sessions are much longer then the old. Three hours vs two hours depending on the settings. But what the heck! Set and forget. Or get the one with the window and interior light and pull up a chair! I would recommend this model. I reserved for a while. With the warranty how can you go wrong.

    Excellent dishwasher at good value

    It is probably the lowest price dishwasher in high-ends category you can buy. One major diff you can see is it comes with 3x3=9 main washing arms, comparing to 3 in regular dishwashers. It is very quiet when running and the results are much better than my previous Whirlpool dishwasher at about $700. However there are some issues. The holes on silverware baskets it too big and cannot hold chopsticks. The noisy level is higher when it drain water out at the end of each cycle. The 3rd rack cannot fold so I cannot use 3rd rack because everytime I have 1 or 2 glasses need be clean and the 3rd rack blocked it.
