Our first d/w was a Maytag that cleaned very well. Unfortunately, in 2 years time we had to replace the latch handle twice, it was recalled because of a potential fire, and ultimately, the tub warped and we replaced it with this Kitchenaid.

Having done extensive research, there is no one d/w that everyone loves. That being said, Kitchenaid comes up as one of the brands that most people prefer. Why not go with a middle level Kitchenaid? Again, all the research I turned up said that it was necessary to go with the higher end in order to get better quality. The higher end uses a different drying and washing process than the mid-range.

Another consideration was that only the top two models have the third tray for utensils. Both my husband and the appliance salesmen minimized the importance of this feature. Having now had the d/w for a month, it's one of my favorite features. Because of food allergies and because we homeschool, we run our d/w four times a day. I need every bit of space available for larger items. By using the upper utensil draw, I can place more items in the bottom drawer.

As I mentioned, I cook a great deal and use a 12 quart stock pot about once a week. I was concerned about being able to fit it in this d/w. Our previous Maytag was a tall tub and had a very large clearance from the bottom rack to the sprayer. No problem with the Kitchenaid.

There are several different options of cleaning cycles, and I do find myself using them. There's even an option for a shorter wash cycle. It's just as efficient, just not as energy-conscious. I haven't used it yet, but am thrilled to know it's available.

As everyone mentions, it's quiet as a whisper. I can talk on the phone right next to it with no problem.

This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. We can run it while watching TV without any disturbance (our kitchen is open to the living room). It also gets dishes very clean. However, the drain pump went out after only 7 months of daily use. The warranty covered it but I was without a dishwasher for 2 weeks (by the time a service call was set up, then the part had to be ordered & took another week to come it). I am concerned that pump will go out again & the warranty will be expired.

I am not a fan of the 3rd shelf for small items. Tall glasses do not fit in the 2nd shelf because of that extra shelf & we rarely use that 3rd shelf. I finally pulled it out & keep it out. No need to pay extra for this feature.

I had done a lot of reading about dishwashers when I decided to replace my Frigidaire Professional that came with my house. The Frigidaire never seemed to clean as we thought it should.

Long story short this is an amazing dishwasher. my mom cooked some lasagna we left the dish and merely put it into the dishwasher in front of the pot scrubbers. from caked and baked on sauce to perfectly clean. Trust me this is an amazing dishwasher and to top it off it is quiet. It also has a ton of room and a 3rd rack for small utensils.

you get what you pay for, buy it if it is in your budget.

Most of these reviews are accurate. It is quiet, looks great, and has mediocre cleaning capabilities. However, I have had my unit for just over a year and can tell you what it is like to own one of these dishwashers for more than the first month.

The first time my Kitchenaid Dishwasher had problems, it was a complete shutdown, just a month after owning the unit. The dishwasher stopped in the middle of the dry cycle and was completely unresponsive. The Bi-metal thermal fuse went out. It was replaced and it lasted me 10 months. Then it went out again. This time, they replaced the control panel, wiring harness, and the same fuse.

The machine didn't make it through the first cycle after the technician left. He came back and replaced the fuse again. It went out again.

I called whirlpool to take further action and they said my warranty was now out. Even though it was the same problem. One of the times they came out and replaced the fuse was a "courtesy warranty service" Thanks Whirlpool! However, the same problem exists and the problem has never been fixed.

So now I'm stuck with this machine and I've opted to buy a handful of fuses and replace them ever so often. It's cheaper than buying a whole new machine. However...

I started researching Kitchenaid/Whirlpool Dishwashers and as it turns out, Whirlpool uses the same set of electronics in most of their dishwashers. This problem exists in many of their dishwashers. In fact Whirlpool has had a string of issues with their control boards. Even to the point that many of the control boards allegedly caused fires. Check out the website kichenaidfire. I'm considering now replacing the unit and staying away from any type of Whirlpool Product.

I highly recommend looking into all whirlpool product reviews if you are considering buying one. More than likely they will have the same electronics and same problems and same poor service.

We are a family of 2 that does one load of dishes every other day. Bought my kitchen aid dishwasher 3.5 years ago. I love the stainless interior and the rack design. After 6 months warranty put in a new mother board. Then the front latch needed to be replaced. Then the dispenser assembly melted ( $110. + shipping and service) and now the control circuit board won't run cycles (sometimes it sticks in a cycle indefinitely and other times it won't turn on). Only refurbished circuit boards (one that has previously gone bad) are available for a repair, no new replacement part is availabe (a cost of $300.00 + shipping and service). And to top it off the front plastic control panel screw holders have fallen apart from taking it on & off so many times for repairs (another $190.00 + shipping and labor if you want to fix it. They don't make kitchen aid dishwashers like they use to. I will NEVER BUY another one. This one is beyond being a lemon. It is a piece of S_ _T!
