Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Bought the KDTE234GPS to replace a failing Kenmore DW. Most of the DW's we looked at were pretty underwhelming and we were going to get another model from kitchen aid that had the controls on the outside on a plastic panel. I really wasn't thrilled about the handle because it felt like it would break after so many pulls but the price was attractive. Fortunately, the store was out of stock on this model so we went with the KDTE234GPS. Installed it ourselves easily enough. The DW runs quietly. The third shelf is actually nicer than I thought it would be , we were initially trying to avoid a third shelf but I find it useful and easy. The trays pull out nicely especially the middle rack, the soap dispenser holds a pod nicely, had to force them in the last DW. I definitely use Rinse aid as recommended I was never big on it with the last DW but it does make a difference. The DW cleans wonderfully, I never used to put pots and pans in but now I do and they come out sparkling and like new. The handle on this model makes it feel solid and the finish is fantastic. I haven't even seen water spots yet and we have had it for almost 2 weeks now. Definitely recommend on my current experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed Such a beautiful object! Bought this dishwasher almost 2 months ago and I have been washing the dishes by hand since. First the motor had to be replaced, now it won’t dry and leaves droplets everywhere on dishes and dishwasher parts including door and walls. I previously owned a super cheap dishwasher and I never had this issue. I am very disappointed with the product and the service. I cannot believe that I bought a new product that I have to have fixed twice before using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Clean & Quiet Dishwasher We love our new dishwasher that we purchased during the Boxing Week sales. It was easy to install, cleans the dishes extremely well and is so quiet, you don't even hear it when it is running. The front lights let you know when it is washing, drying and complete. The third rack is also a great feature. The only small issue for us is that it is a little more light weight than our previous one, so we have to be a little more careful opening it. All in all, I highly recommend this dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet I forget that it's running. I knew we wanted a quiet dish washer but this thing is beyond our expectations. The drying cycle really works well also. While it does have a lot of features they are all easy to get to and identify. You won't even need the manual.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Disappointment! I bought it before holidays, the first one delivered didn't work at all, just wetting the dishes and not even dispensing the soap! They replaced it with a new one, this looks like it works fine, but it cleans dishes only and only if you wash them all with hands by scour pad and dishwashing liquid before putting them in!!!! Any dirt left on dishes when you put them in, will be there after the long cycle! We are completely disappointed by KitchenAid, our old machine was doing a much better job than this new one! Moreover, Kitchen Customer Service was another disappointment, took a long time to replace the faulty one, and no response so far on this new one! Always looked at KitchenAid as a reliable brand, not any more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet, very easy to use We did A LOT of research on MANY different brands & models. When it came down to Quality for price, this model couldn't be beaten. Great simple options that you will actually use, high quality, and don't forget that if you do ever need service, it's American made so the techs and parts are plentiful.
