        I believe it has a grinder not a disposal. Do not think you can get a disposal in any dishwasher anymore. Both come with a filter that needs to be cleaned on a regular basis.

        When using the dishwasher only 2x a week, does it have a smell?   (5 Answers)

        We now Have a Bosch dishwasher. We only run it 2x a week. When you open the door, it has a strong smell.. I was told we need to run it a lot more. I had a KitchenAid dishwasher for 15 years and ran it maybe 2x a week and no smell. Just checking to see if the new KitchenAid dishwasher would be the same?????

          Answer

          YES, it's because it's a non-vented washer. Many are these days apparently. And using it every day helps "clean it out " from what i see and have heard. Ours smells after a day off. IF you're stuck with it, try putting a small glass of vinegar in the tray Upright so the vinegar gets splashed out slowly and helps sanitize it. I tried that and it seems to help a bit, and white vinegar is cheap at least. The filter smells even with a tiny bit of stuff in it too I think.

          What if height not fit in under my counter top?   (3 Answers)

          I've purchased a KitchenAid Dishwasher today, a delivery & installation not until next two weeks, however, I just checked a measure height is 34.5" is .5" taller than my old dishwasher and a counter. What do you think? Do I have to go back store return and look for another dishwasher under 34" height or the install technician can figure out how to get it to fit under a counter? Please, let me know your answer soon what to do with this purchase. I believe all KitchenAid Dishwasher is 34.5" height. Thank you!

            How long does the dishwasher last before it breaks down ?   (3 Answers)

            My last dishwasher lasted 15 years. My current one started having problems in its 13th month - it cannot handle water ! It was the top rated dishwasher - but they do not test them 18 months after they have been in use.

              My unit broke within the first year and it took several repair attempts for it to work but now just months later the problem is back and will have to start the repair cycle again. Problem is error code i20 and the unit just quits washing leaving dishes soapy and wet.

                Can you cancel the dish washing cycle at any point since the operating buttons are on the top edge of the door? Doesn't look like you can access the controls while the door is closed while washer is running.   (2 Answers)

                    Are the Controls accessible with granite lip enclosure ?   (5 Answers)

                    The granite countertop covers the upper "lip" of the dishwasher completely. Will that affect the ability to use the controls?

                      Answer

                      Controls are on the door. You need to open the door to access the controls so you should be fine.
