Keep up with the tools you use from preparation to the table with this dishwasher's three racks of versatile loading possibilities and complete wash coverage. The FreeFlex™ third rack fits glasses, mugs, bowls, silverware and cooking tools, freeing up room below for pots, plates, and mixing bowls. The advanced clean water wash system circulates clean water to dishes in all three racks, and the fan-enabled ProDry™ system provides thorough drying, so dishes come out ready for more enjoying.
FreeFlex™ third rack
The large third rack has a deep, angled design that fits 6" glasses, mugs, and bowls.
It features rotating wash jets to clean items in the rack, a drying bar with tabs that help wick moisture off glasses, and a removable utensil tray for cooking tools. (Among leading brands based on usable volume.)
Provides quiet cleaning without compromising performance, so there's no need to wait to run a wash cycle, while entertaining and enjoying meals, even in open concept kitchens.
Advanced clean water wash system
Uses microfiltration to continuously remove food particles during the wash and rinse cycles and circulates clean water to dishes in all three racks. This allows dirty cookware and delicate glassware to be washed together in the same load.
Utilizes sensors to measure soil levels throughout the cycle and adapts wash time and water temperature as needed for tough messes or lighter loads, because no two meals or the dishes that result are exactly the same.
Resists smudges and fingerprints. The specialized coating for stainless steel is easy to clean with just water and a soft cloth, so you can spend more time cooking and less time cleaning up the kitchen.
Adjustable middle rack
Adds flexibility to fit tall items, such as a stand mixer bowl. Lower the rack to place large dishes inside, or raise it to make room for platters, pitchers, blender jars and more in the rack below.
Extended ProDry™ option
Extends the cycle time by 15 minutes for loads that need extra drying time.
Durable stainless steel interior
Offers the beauty and benefits of stainless steel inside the dishwasher. It resists streaks, stains and odors, while retaining heat to help improve drying.
SatinGlide® rails in third and middle racks
Allow racks to move effortlessly, even when fully loaded.
Adjustable rows in middle and lower racks
Fold down to make room for dishes in a variety of shapes and sizes, such as roasting pans, serving bowls, colanders, and Dutch ovens.
Four stemware holders in middle rack
Secure wine glasses along the side of the rack to prevent them from moving around during the wash cycle.
Express wash cycle
Cleans in less time, so you always have the dishes you need while preparing, cooking, and entertaining.
Eliminates food soil bacteria.
Controls are tucked away on top of the dishwasher door for a clean look to match your kitchen style. An indicator light on the front of the door changes colors to subtly display cycle progress.

A:AnswerI was compare shopping the 404KPS and 604KPS. The big difference I saw was the "Pro-dry" feature on the 604KPS. We spent the $100 and got the 604KPS. My wife says the Pro-Dry is worth the money. She says it works very well. It dries much better than any dishwasher we have ever had.
A:AnswerSo I finally got in touch with someone at kitchenaid that was able to at least provide me some information. She said that the fan can run up to 8 hours after wash was completed or until the door is opened. I don’t think I have tried it for that long so I will let it hit 8 hrs and see if it turns off and report back
A:AnswerYes, you can remove both upper racks and the middle one can be moved up and down. The very top rack has a utensil rack that can also be removed. We cook a lot, and both my husband and I love the way this machine loads. The company clearly has put a lot of thought into it.
A:AnswerHi RPMM. The pump is protected from large objects entering it by the
foreign object cup in the front and below the lower rack. The
maintenance free filter system does not require any regular
cleaning or maintenance. If this cup fills up with particles or
objects, depress the tab in the center and pull up on the cup to
remove it. Dispose of the contents and then replace the cup. To
replace the cup, put into the opening and push down to lock in
place. You can access the product help and demo pages for this unit by going to the following link: http://bit.ly/3eiskvp
