    Overall, great dishwaser for the price

    |
    Posted .

    Had this for about a month now. Looked at all the brands in the $900-$1,000 range and narrowed down to Kitchenaid, Bosche, and Miele. Miele was consistently the best reviewed but not available at Best Buy, which was offering free delivery installation at the time. The Kitchenaid and Bosche both received mostly good reviews, but I finally chose this model due to the capacity. I took the Bosche rack out at the store and it fit inside the Kitchenaid rack. Pros: High capacity, cleans and drys dishes well, adjustable top rack (has been useful when we have tall water bottles), quiet operation (but not completely quiet - at startup and a couple of other times in the cycle, you can hear it; not loud by any means but not 100% silent), one hour mode (but uses more water) Cons: shows fingerprints but easy to clean

    Kitchenaid over Bosch

    Posted .

    Hesitantly went with this dishwasher after months of research instead of a Bosch because of the heated dry and disposal features. We have put this dishwasher to the test in the last few weeks to make sure we like it before the 30 day return policy is up. I have been thrilled with it's performance. I used to rinse my dishes so well before I put them in that when I opened it, I sometimes couldn't tell if they were clean or dirty. I have been putting in dishes without rinsing them at all...just scraping the scraps into the sink and loading. I even put in lasagna plates...leftover lasagna that I heated to near boiling on the plate. I did use the Power Scrub cycle for this and the dishes came out sparkling....shocking! It loads really well too. I love the upper rack...tons of space. The lower rack fits a lot too...my only complaint is that I can't fit my cookie sheets in or my really big chili pot...not enough height. That's disappointing. Looks great! Super high end look. A little louder than I expected...not whisper quiet...can hear maybe the disposal occasionally, mostly right at the beginning of the cycle, but not at all a deal breaker...still quiet, just not silent. Overall, am very happy with it and would recommend it...and I am picky. My friend tells me I shop for the thrill of the return...plain and simple, if it's not good enough, it goes back...and I'm keeping this one.

    Look No Further

    Posted .

    First of all, I am a male so for me to be posting a review on a dishwasher is a little funny. This unit is truly amazing. Not only was it on sale I got it for 200 less because box had been opened. Only this was a cancelled order and the unit never actually left the box. Installation was pretty easy but the dino I replaced it with had too short of a hose for water and hook up was different so I would recomend paying for installation as it took me about 2 hours to fiddle with it. Now on to the pay dirt. The first time I ran this awesome machine it was like being the only person on earth. Ultra quiet could faintly hear it filling and running as I stood next to it. I used to have to crank the tv up cause my old one sounded like a 747 was in the kitchen. Nice bells and whistles as it has the hard food grinder and heated drying. Tons of space inside for me and has height adjustable upper rack. Kind of cheap on the silverware rack material but plenty of space none the less. Hope this helps anyone who was contemplating this unit. Im gonna go run another cycle just to be in awe.

    Extremely pleased!

    Posted .

    I started out with a Maytag that had almost the same features as this Kitchen Aide model although the Maytag did not have the easy-adjustable upper shelf like this one or the adjustable tines. We installed the Maytag ourselves. On the second load in the Maytag we looked under the unit to check for leaks (we are on wood floors). Thank goodness we did, water was pooling under the unit. We pulled it out and ran another cycle to see where it was leaking. During wash cycle water was coming from the tub itself where it was "seamed" on an outside edge. We returned it and continued to shop. I searched the Kitchen Aide site and found the model that I felt had all that I wanted and located it at Best Buy with an incredible sale price. We did the install again. The Kitchen Aide has extra insulation that Maytage did not on the underneath side. We have had it for 2 months and I love this machine. You must use the rinse aid but I always do as we have extremely hard water. My dishes are spotless and the unit is super quiet. If it didn't have a light I would not know when it is running. The pro-scrub feature does work but I pre-rinse. Love the free-standing silverware basket for unloading and it's nice and large. Upper shelf adjusts easily. This machine far surpasses my 10 year-old top of the line Whirlpool(which I really felt was a good machine, we went to all stainless). No complaints at all!

    So far so good

    Posted .

    I purchased this dishwasher after lots of research. I was originally looking for a Bosch, but got scared away by lots of people saying they are quiet, but don't clean or dry very well. I'm a little disappointed in the build quality ( i.e. The racks don't slide in and out as smoothly as the ~$1,200 Kitchenaids) and noise level of this unit compared to the higher end units, but for hundred less, you get what you pay for I suppose. On the trial run for this unit, I put in a baking pan with baked-on food and used the Pro-Scrub option and placed the pan right at the jets. To my disappointment, the pan did not come out clean. I think my expectations were a bit too high for this unit. Anyway, with my new lowered expectations, I'm pretty happy considering the price. The unit starts out making some noise, but gets pretty quiet after a minute or so. I've only used it three times so far, so I don't know about reliability yet. The clear plastic glasses it washed the other day came out looking new for the first time since they were actually new, so I'm pleased with that.

    Very nice product

    Posted .

    We previously had a white kitchen aid dishwasher and was quite please with it. However we have to keep up with the Jones and started converting to stainless steel appliances. This dishwasher is very quite. It does an excellent job at cleaning. Due to it's new improved energy efficiency it does take longer to run through a cycle then our other kitchen aid model but i guess that is life. My only wish was that this model came in the nickel plated coating instead of regular stainless steel so you dont see the finger prints. My awesome Samsung Refrigerator has the nickel plated coating and it totally rocks...no prints anywhere. By the way the old Kitchen Aid dishwasher is still working wonderfully in my other home. Kitchen Aid knows how to make awesome dishwashers!

    Good Product Overall

    Posted .

    Unit was purchased to replace an identical version from about 6 years ago (broken door hinge). Given that we chose to replace with the same model, we have been pleased with the performance in general. Installation was easy (though we had to stop midway to run out and buy the adapter/fitting) and the unit is quieter than the previous (also quiet) due to extra insulation. Performance is as expected with all dishes and silver clean (and spot free) even though we run it only about 1.5 times per week. Only complaint so far is the soap door does not close easily. If it does not loosen with time, we will have the repair company out to check (purchased extended warranty - seems like a must with appliances these days). Differences between the old and new models: the silverware basket on the old is better (heavier and the lids/covers are attached so they cannot fall into the baskets - we chose to swap the old basket for use in the new unit); on the old unit Normal Wash was the default; on the new it must be chosen each time; more plastic lid holders in new unit. Paid $799.99 on sale and the Best Buy folks were great to work with during the busy holidays.

    Excellent Dishwasher

    Posted .

    We moved into our new home 11 years ago. Since that time i went through 2 GE Profile Series dishwasher that were junk. i was torn between the Kitchen Aid and the Bosch. After extensive reviews and calls to some of the appliance repair places i had to use for my GE over the years i decided on the Kitchen Aid. This model in particular because of the added features i needed like delay start. (not that you need it for noise because this unit is very quiet). I also like the added jets on the rear wall. You will need to buy an adapter for the water line that is not included for some reason. $4.15 at Lowes. My dishes have never been cleaner and this unit is very quiet. very happy and i am not an easy guy to please when it comes to appliances. i even tested it by having knives with 2 day old peanut butter on them and plates with dryed ketchup. Spotless. Amazing

    Great dishwasher!

    This is the quietest dishwasher I've ever had. It does a really good job of cleaning my dishes and leaves them sparkling. Even removed film from glasses that the old dishwasher left on them. KitchenAid is a dependable brand. I"m very pleased with it. The only thing I don't like is the flimsy plastic things that are supposed to hold the knives, forks & spoons upright.. They won't stay in place, no matter what I do. Think they will eventually be discarded. KitchenAid needs to rethink those. Otherwise, it's a good product that I would recommend to friends.

    Great Dishwasher

    Posted .

    I shopped around for months and read hundreds of reviews and this is the best dishwasher that you can buy for this price! It is extremely quiet! We have a raised foundation and wood floors throughout our house and I can barely tell that it is running. I live in an area where the water is extremly hard, I use a teaspoon of a product called "Lemi Shine" along with one to two teaspoons of powder dish detergent and the dishes come out spotless and completely dry every time.

    Huge capacity!

    |
    Posted .

    This is an awesome dishwasher. We previously had a dishwasher that lacked in capacity planning. We were running it just about every day. This new one uses space much more efficiently and that makes me happy. The only thing I'm not crazy about are the controls at the top - they're really sensitive. You just barely brush your hand over it and it registers that you've pressed a button. That can be good or bad, but if you use the top of the door to open it rather than the bar on the front, then you're going to press something. Not a huge complaint, but I wish it were just a little less sensitive.

    Quality build and performance

    |
    Posted .

    We are surprised by how QUIET this dishwasher is. Many claim to be, this one delivers. Quality construction throughout, with enough options to please everyone. We often use the shorter wash cycle with NO loss of washing power. We do leave the utensil holders OPEN, as the slots are more of an annoyance than a benefit. Be sure to use drying agent as it makes a significant difference. The only "quirk" you have to get use to is cancelling the start button, before closing the door, otherwise you may have unintended starts. We are very pleased with this product, AND the BEST BUY installation and support.

    Quiet, large capacity, easy to use, cleans well

    Posted .

    We've owned this for just a few weeks and so far, we love this dishwasher. The unit replaced our 11yr old GE Profile and the increased storage and reduced noice is just incredible. We reviewed many dishwashers before making our purchase and this is our first, of most likely more Kitchenaide products. We've used it with heat drying on and off. As long as you use JetDry, which is recommended, either way works with no spots.

    Love this dishwasher as it’s very quiet. Gets the dishes clean and dry everytime. I never had issues with its performance. However it gets dirty very easily on the front panel and makes little harder to keep it spotless

    This seemed to be the best choice for us. Its not the whisper quiet I had imagined it to be but it is probably on par with its competition. Matched our other Kitchen Aid appliances so it was an easy choice. Love that you can adjust the top rack up and down a little to allow for bigger plates on the bottom.

    So far, so good...

    We replaced an LG dishwasher that we absolutely hated, and while there might be machines that are quieter, this one is quiet enough and to this point the cleaning is superb. The LG machine did not have a drying element, so we insisted on having that in the new machine and the dishes do not come out with water dripping off them. Overall, it's been a good purchase so far.

    Couldn't ask for a better dishwasher

    Posted .

    We put this dishwasher through all our tests once it was installed and boy were we surprised at how well it cleaned our dishes. You definitely want to use a rinse aid like the Finish that is included as the drying is much better with it as well as moisture does not remain in the dishwasher when using it. We even tried not rinsing any dishes and had a macaroni and cheese caked on dish that we figured there would be no way it would clean it 100%. Well putting that dish in the ProScrubber zone and choosing that option BAM it was clean and all the non-rinsed dishes were spotless. Pros: -Easily adjustable top rack -Cleans everything we throw at it -Very quiet Cons: -We wish it had a 3rd top short rack

    clean dishes without a lot of noise

    Posted .

    We have had this dishwasher a little over a month and it is doing great. Very quiet and does a great job on the dirt. One thing that is a challenge is tall items like a large round pizza pan that does not fit so it had to be handwashed. Granted not that big of a deal but I used to tilt these in my old dishwasher it and fit. We are very happy though so its all good.

    Looks good in my kitchen

    Posted .

    So far, I am satisfied with this purchase. It was between this Kitchenaid and a Whirlpool. I did not like the Stainless Steel handle or the silverware rack on the Whirlpool and I liked the way this Kitchenaid looked and all of the washing options that I had on this model. It cleans very well and it is very quiet. I like that I could delay my wash or rinse only if I need to.

    It works! So far, so good

    Posted .

    I put dishes in and they come out clean! Quiet. My last dishwasher (Maytag) was a HUGE lemon and we got rid of it after only ~ 6yrs. It would not get rid of the ground up dirt so dishes would come out with baked on crud. Sometimes items come out "dirtier" than when they went it. Maybe I have low expectations -- but my dishwasher works and I couldn't be happier. Pair that with it being on sale, getting good reviews. I say you won't be disappointed..
