    Love this dishwasher

    |
    Posted .

    So pleased with this dishwasher. It is quiet, it cleans the dishes dries them well, looks good, racks are designed well and slide out easily, and is well constructed. We had an LG and were only moderately pleased with and it started malfunctioning just short of having it one year. Best Buy was great to work with and gave us the option to replace it after a problem with getting replacement parts. We upgraded to the KitchenAid. So glad with did!

    Very pleased with my choice

    After researching many dishwashers and reading even more reviews, I chose the architect II and so far it has more than met my expectations. I owned a kitchen aid dishwasher years ago and it was the best one I had ever owned until this one. It just got old and I replaced it with a samsung. It was a problem from the start. (Did not clean well, dry well, racks fell apart and smelled rotten, even after washing a load of dishes). Needless to say, I was gun shy about any dishwasher. Even though I read some negative reviews about the architect II, (and most dishwashers have them) it seemed to meet my needs. I have really put it to work during the past few months and it has performed beautifully! Dishes are clean and dry and some of my older pots and pans have cleaned up very nicely. I don't have one complaint and so far I'm very pleased with my choice.

    It's quiet and cleans well

    My dishes go in. My selection is made, the door goes up, the white light comes on. That is my only indication that this dishwasher is working. When the light is blue, I open it up to find clean dishes. No more washing my dishes before I wash my dishes. It also holds a ton of dishes. I can fill both my kitchen sinks with dishes and it will do almost all of them. Especially silverware. I think the designers use a ton of silverware in a day or something. Oh, well, still has tons of room for everything else, so not really a complaint. A couple of things: it does make the area around it smell a little funky when it is running (not bad, sort of a new car smell - even after having it for a month!). Also, it freaked me out when I saw the light turn red on it. I thought it had broke down or something. Apparently, red means drying. Ooops. I opened it thinking something was wrong with it, and got blasted with steam. Don't be like me. Leave it closed when the light turns red. Overall, the best dishwasher I have ever had. And it looks really nice in my kitchen, so that's a plus.

    High end finish

    Love the front handle pull down feature - thought I wouldn't like the hidden top controls instead of on the front but now I wouldn't dream of having it any other way. With the top controls the front is so much more cleaner and looks more sleek and stylish!

    Good dishwasher

    After struggles with my old Bosch dishwasher (less than 5 years old, top of the line model), I asked the appliance repair man (they tried several times to fix my Bosch that I purchased the extended warranty on) which brand he would recommend. He told me to get a KitchenAid. I looked at all the different models, but didn't feel the 3rd shelf was necessary, so I got this one. Everything went well, install was quick and easy, and the dishwasher works great. It dries dishes nicely (a little dampness on the inside of the washer but not the dishes/glasses), it washes them even better, it is VERY quiet, and still has the Energy Star efficiency rating. It looks good as well and it is pretty self explanatory to use.

    I went from a 2 drawer dishwasher to this KitchenAid. This dishwasher cleans so much better! It is so quiet, that I had to keep checking to see if it was running the first few times I ran it. I haven't had to clean the filter yet, but it looks like it is pretty simple. I like the silverware rack. Even if I use powder, the well stays very clean. So far, I am very happy with this purchase.

    It is super quiet and sometimes I can't even tell whether it is running or not. Seems to clean dishes very well. My only complaint is loading larger items on the bottom.. feel like my old Maytag had better loading space for larger casserole dishes because the utensil basket fit in the middle of the lower rack vs. this Kitchen Aid with the utensil basket taking up 1 whole side of the bottom rack.

    High quality, quiet dishwasher

    This is not the most affordable KitchenAid dishwasher, but it offers good quality for the price. It is whisper quiet. So quiet that my wife and I have both looked in the kitchen for someone sneaking around, but found it was the dishwasher making barely audible noises! The new dishwasher does a good job of cleaning the dishes, even my dried oatmeal from yesterday's breakfast bowl. I hope this dishwasher lasts a long time. It seems to be a good aid in the kitchen!

    Awesome, quiet dishwasher

    Our old Frigidaire Gallery was about to go. I stressed over which unit to replace it with. Many store reps recommended either LG, Samsung, or Bosch. I decided to give Kitchenaid a chance, and I'm glad I did. I like the heated dry option, as long as I can turn it off. Also I like that it has a filter instead of a hard food disposer - filter can be taken apart & cleaned periodically whereas the disposer can't. Finally, I like that the cycle can be paused (this helps when using dishwasher cleaner products) - my old dishwasher would drain as soon as the cycle was stopped. Great dishwasher, super quiet, I would buy it again.

    Great but not perfect

    Best brand and performance after months of research. Cleans well. Only failure is a large glob of peanut butter on knife in utensil basket. Still can hear it during noisy part of wash cycle. But it holds lots of dishes. Overall we think we made a wize choise.

    We recently purchased a Kitchenaid Dishwasher from Best Buy. We had checked prices and found the lowest one at Lowe's. When we shared this with Best Buy they matched not only the price but were able to set up fast delivery and installation. We are very happy with their service. The dishwasher performs outstanding!

    Great dishwasher!

    Posted .

    We run at least one full load of dishes every day in our house. This replaced an 18 yr old Whirlpool that was still working but the racks were falling apart and it was very noisy for our small townhome living area. Now with the new dishwasher we can run dishes whenever we want-while talking, watching TV, etc. and it doesn't wake up all our pet birds like the old one did. You can hear a little gurgling when the water drains, but not much, really. It has a deep tub and lots of room. The top rack adjusts up and down easily. I liked the LGs I saw but the bottom racks didn't have a thing to keep them in place and they jammed even when empty. The racks do glide VERY easily which is nice but you have to get used to it. The kids broke a glass because they pushed the top rack in too fast. You also have to get used to the three sprayers-bottom, top, and under the top rack. They are great but you can't block them or they won't spin. I think that would be the same in any dishwasher. If you are coming from a very old DW, understand that all dishwashers now have longer cycles and use much less water. The only thing I wish it had was a more fingerprint proof outer shell.

    Cleans great, stainless is different shine

    Super quiet and really cleans the dishes. Only disappointment is the stainless is a very bright stainless so it doesn't match the rest of the stainless appliances.

    Very sleek looking dishwasher. Love that the controls are hidden. Very simple wash options. Operation is very quiet. You barely know it's on. The indicator light is very helpful The handle sticks out a little built further so remember to account for that if you have a close drawer like I do.

    Exactly What I Wanted!!

    After trying other dishwashers that were "rated higher", such as a Bosch, nothing compares to a Kitchenaid. When others leave spots, dirt, and strange odors...Kitchenaid gets the job done right everytime! I am very satisfied

    It is very quiet, you can not hear it in the living room 15 feet away. I must look to see if the light is on to see if it is running. It seems to clean just fine. I feel better having a stainless steel tub.

    It actually cleans dishes

    Posted .

    I wound up having to buy a kitchenaid dishwasher because I bought their range and my wife said that all of the appliances needed to match. This dishwasher was on the higher end of the price range but it was well worth it. To start with it actually cleans dishes. Crazy right? It is also VERY quiet. We cant hear it running at all and bonus points because it ACTUALLY CLEANS THE DISHES!!!

    This KitchenAid dishwasher was a replacement for a Samsung waterwall dishwasher that was a total disappointment. Luckily, Best Buy (N. Olmsted, Ohio) swapped it out for us even though it was outside of the typical return period. The KitchenAid performs perfectly with totally clean and dry dishes everytime with no drama. You won't be disappointed. Thanks KitchenAid and Best Buy!

    Overall very good. So quiet I still check it periodically to see if it is really running. Coffee cups not cleaned well. Not sure if it is the dishwasher or my hard water.
