    We purchase the lg LGModel: LDP6797STSKU: 5714463 and a week later exchanged it for the kitchenaide,, the lg did not have heating unit, we are happy with the kitchenaide, the heating element was a big factor for us, I love the light, the machine is very quite, the wash light and clean light very nice, silverware basket nice with opening for ladles, when you shut the door it feels like it is well built unlike the lg. love the power scrub, all my dishes are clean, not the case with lg, doesn't have the smell because of the heating element, which dries the dishes unlike lg, love the food disposal, don't have to mess with cleaning the filter like on the lg, I wish it had the 3 rack like lg, but it is not as important as disposal and heating element. love my power jets on back wall of dishwasher, my old one had it and it was a must for us, so glad kithcenaide offered it. lg door panel seemed flimsy when closing or wiping stainless steel panel, not the case with the kitcheniade, feels like it is not a panel but part of the door, we are picky with our dishwasher and didn't think it would be difficult to replace our 10 year old dishwasher, but it was hard to find one power jets on back panel, heating element, disposal, light to notify you if it was washing or done, also, this one you can actually open it to put a forgotten dish and restart, the lg you cannot. love my dishwasher and so thankful it was so easy to exchange at BestBuy, they made it painless.

    So we usually would not have looked at this brand of dishwasher but we got it for a discounted price simply because it had a "window" in it. While this is an interesting feature it was a tad bit disappointing. We thought that you would be able to watch the dishes being watched as there is a light in there and a window but the light is only on when the cycle is finished and when the door is open, making the window feature completely pointless to have. Other than that it works well. I like the different settings it has. It does not have a feature that you can lock the door so say if it's running a cycle and your 2 yr old decides to grab onto the bar it will just open. There is a "control lock" meaning you can lock it so that the buttons cannot be accidentally pushed which is nice. Also it is fairly quiet compared to the dishwashers I have used in the past but there are a couple points in the cycle where it is a little noisy (really probably only noticeable when it's really quiet in the house). We usually run at night so that is when it is heard but otherwise it's pretty quiet.

    We had an old Kenmore that looked nice but was really loud, it was over 6 years old and when we redid our kitchen I convinced my husband to get a new dishwasher. I looked around and decided on the Kitchenaid line we where looking at the stainless steel because thats what we had in our kitchen. When we went to best buy we found the one we wanted in the sales section of the store and it was in black stainless steel, I always like the way the blacked look but it normal coast more then stainless steel. So we got the black stainless steel and it looks amazing next to my grey cabinets. This dishwasher to soooooooo quite my toddler is a lite sleeper and I can run this dishwasher without waking him. I forget I even have it on its so quite. We installed the dishwasher ourselves and it was easy the directions where very clear. I been using this dish washer for about two weeks now and it works great my dishes are nice and clean even my wine glasses.

    Dishes Always Clean

    We bought this unit as an open box and received a fantastic deal on it. The window is an extremely strange feature as you can't see in the washer when it is running. We bought this solely on the price and it was recommended by the salesman as a high performing washer. We have used it almost every day for 2 months. It cleans every dish, all the time. We have really challenged it with egg, dried jelly, etc. Always gets em clean! Pan scrubber works great. It is extremely quiet. When we first started using it we kept opening the door because we could not tell it was running.

    This dishwasher performs well. Really quiet. I love the stainless steel tub and the sparkling clean results. The top shelf broke at 10 months and I have been unable to get service from Kitchen aide service. Never answer the phone. Chat was unsuccessful will not schedule service without a receipt. I can provide a receipt but the service is awful. I registered and left two chat messages. No call back. My Home warranty would not service since it is 10 months old. Just stuck like chuck

    I had read a number of reviews before deciding on this unit. Admittedly, the design (window) appealed to me first as it looked great with my other appliances. It was pretty simple for the technician to install so, if you know what you are doing, it doesn't appear to be difficult to set-up yourself. The unit itself is not only stylish, but works great on cleaning all the dishes. It's very quiet and hardly noticeable when running. It does take a little while for a standard running and I haven't tried a number of the specialty settings. Overall, very pleased.

    Our 12 year old Kitchenaid dishwasher had burnt out the electrical inside so we needed a new dishwasher. We saw this Kitchenaid as an open box item and compared to other dishwashers in the store. I thought the window was a bit unnecessary but I liked the other features so we chose this model. I really appreciate the inside lights and the reduced energy consumption. It is also very quiet and dishes come out very clean. It seems like I'm able to fit more dishes into this model as well. Sometimes dishes on the top rack don't get completely dry, but the Pro Dry setting seems to help.

    Maybe its my dish sizes that never seem to quite fit in any dishwasher perfectly and this is another one that I still struggle to find the right combination. I find it carries an odor during the week as I fill it up - testament to a great door seal? It takes a while to figure out the best wash cycle for what is in the dishwasher - but when you do they are clean. Very quiet - and the delay timer is great - I run it mostly during my sleeping hours and I never hear a thing. The window looks cool but serves no purpose and I find it silly that they even have it.

    Old dishwasher was dying. Bought it based on review of cleaning capabilities, price and sound level. Reviewed dishwashers again with same requirements and this KitchenAid came to the top of the list. The window and lighted interior moved it to the top of the list. It was so quiet on the first run that we had to open it to see if it was running! Just wish they did not change all the connection sizes. Despite the installation kit, it took two trips to the hardware store to get the right connectors. At times, the $130 installation price locked pretty cheap.

    We're really liking this dishwasher....incredibly quiet, even with the window. Our dishes are clean as a whistle each time. We don't rinse off our dishes prior to putting them in and they get clean. As others have noted, it's a big bummer that the interior LED lighting isn't able to be turned on while it's washing. What would be cool is LED lights that change color during washing...anyway, I really like the self cleaning filtering system too. Overall, we're very pleased with this dishwasher.

    this is replacement number 2 and once again it seems the frame is bent and leaking in the same spot. really best buy this might be a quality control issue with your install guys. they close the door and hit drain cycle and leave during the drain cycle saying all is fine, so by the time they are gone its to late to show them. I am so disappointed with best buy and this issue. I feel like I'm in a bad dream with a never ending Cr@p dishwasher.

    My only problem was that upon instillation, we discovered that it stuck out into the kitchen a lot further than our old one. After my wife got a nice big bruise on her hip, we had to modify the wall behind it to get it to fit a bit further in. The handle still sticks out, but it's not as bad as before the wall modification.

    So Quite

    This washer is so quite, my dog drinking water is louder then the unit when it is running. To me the only down side is you have to select the pro wash to get things clean unless you wash them by hand and are looking for just want to sanitize the dishes, and the down side to a pro wash is the time. best to do it at night and use the delay timer.

    We were unsure about this dishwasher as it had a window in it. Why would you want a window in a dishwasher? I have no idea. So we tried it thinking it might be sort of cool to watch the dishes being cleaned. However the light is only on when the dishwasher is open and for a small time when they are clean. This was disappointing. Other than that it is extremely quiet.

    This dishwasher looks great in the house. I love the look. Not sure why there is a window but it’s different. I don’t always think it cleans the best and more than a few time my plates have come out with black mold on them, not really sure what that’s about. I was wondering it it’s because it’s such a sealed unit.

    This turned out to be a great purchase as the dishwasher looks fantastic and is very quiet. Although the window doesn't really serve any real purpose, we've received many compliments from guests about how it looks. If you like the black stainless, want a quiet dishwasher and desire something a little different, this is the dishwasher you want.

    This is the best dishwasher I’ve ever owned. I use the Prowash self sense mode and it cleans perfectly! I purchased from Best Buy and it was damaged upon delivery. There was no hassle in getting a replacement.

    This dishwasher so far is great. It's super quite, the window is fun to "see" into the dishwasher, and the dishes are coming out clean and the inside of the unit is clean too. A cycle takes about 2.5 hours (a lot faster than our other one) and the trays slide in and out so nicely. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    My last 2 dishwasher were good (Samsung & GE) but this sets the new bar. No dishwasher is perfect for this kitchenaid does a better job with my pots and pans. Its cannot clean everything but it does an amazing job. ONE CAVEAT, i wish the LED lights would stay on during wash, or were at least controllable.

    This is the best dishwasher I ever used. Best Buy helped me pick out the best one for my family. This dishwasher cleans better than my last one. I tell all my friends to go to Best Buy when you are shopping for new appliances Best Buy has everything you need, install and remove the old one. Thanks Best Buy
