    What effect does the dry cycle exhaust on the Kitchen Aide dishwasher have on the surrounding cabinet?   (4 Answers)

    The hot air exhausting from the dry cycle comes out on the cabinets. I would think that the heat and moisture hitting the cabinet will warp and discolor the cabinet. I would rather have a model that expells the heat in the front like my older Kitchen Aide but I can't find a model that still does this.

      As so many others, we also viewed the videos of the drying cycle causing warped cabinets, and initially backed off the purchase. But then logic took over: How could a company hope to sell a product with this kind of flaw? We own many KitchenAid products and are totally pleased with their performance, and so we decided to trust that KitchenAid would not knowingly and on purpose shoot themselves in the foot. This dishwasher has been in operation in our kitchen for almost 10 weeks. There is some warmth around the dishwasher during the drying cycle (which dishwasher does NOT have that!). We have watched our solid wood cabinets like hawks, and we are happy to report that they are not damaged in any way.

        Pods are fine. They actually give you a sample packet with the purchase of the dishwasher!
