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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek look - Outstanding/Quiet Cleaning This dishwasher has been installed in my house for about 3 weeks now and did a great job over the Christmas Season when lots of company meant lots of dishes to clean. Very pleased with the operation of our new dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet I am so impressed with this dishwasher and how well it cleans everything, and how quiet it is. Love the third tray for cutlery as it allows for more space in the bottom rack. Highly recommend this appliance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Must of got a lemon I received this dishwasher today. I don't know what happen to this machine but after I took delivery I noticed the following: inside top cover on utensil rack was cracked completely through; top utensil rack appears to have two broken rollers on both sides and is being held on by only the rear roller; and top left corner of control panel was broken; which was noticed after I delicately removed the clear plastic and seen part of the plastic corner was attached to it. Totally disappointed to say the least but to be fair it appears to wash good and is quiet. My last Kitchenaid was a great machine. What the heck happened to this one? Unbelievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great appliance Great dishwasher. Controls are on the top of the appliance easy to wipe off as it’s a flat surface (I’m used to the buttons and dials). Cleans dishes wonderfully
