Great looking appliance that does the job well

Linda 10/30/2017

I really lovemy dishwasher. I just don't love how long it takes to complete a cycle. I was told to run the water in the sink until it was hot before starting the dishwasher and this would cut down the time on the cycles. This has not really helped. The normal cycle is about 3 to 4 hours long. The dishes and pots are really clean but Is wish it didn't take so long.

Dishwasher review

Sue 10/17/2017

Bought because it was highly recommended by salesman. Pros: Washes very well. Lots of options Cons: Learning how to load it, but it has the upper utility tray that is pretty useless and it prevents you from being able to load a large sheet cake pan into the dishwasher. Plastic is very wet after dry cycle. Read manual and its recommendations didn't help. Still like my Bosch better but this one matches my Wolfe stove.

Yes, I recommend this product

I LOVE this dishwasher.

TBthatsme 9/28/2017

I've been stuck in a nightmare with a competitors full line of appliances. After refusing to buy a brand new dishwasher just 1 months after the warranty was up, I hand washed dishes for a year (family of 5 ?) and finally decided to bite the bullet and bought a KitchenAid and I LOVE it. No washing the dishes before loading them! I also like the ease of the drawers and the layout of the racking system. Now to save for swapping all my useless appliances over to KitchenAid

Yes, I recommend this product

Quiet Dishwasher

Culinarylady 9/27/2017

Other reviewers stated the machine was so quiet that they had to see if the indicator light was on. Well, that's true! I like the cycle options and have no problem with clean dishes. I am disappointed with wet dishes when using the heated drying cycle. Love the look of the dishwasher with the handle.

Yes, I recommend this product

Absolutely perfect!! Highly recommend!!

Lisa 9/26/2017

I loved my daughter's so much while visiting her, I bought the same one for myself. Super quiet, sparkling clean dishes, and the adjustable height upper rack is a game changer!!

Yes, I recommend this product

Super clean dishes and super quiet

SherryinBoynton 9/26/2017

WOW! I couldn't imagine that I would see much difference but my dishes and glassware are really sparkling clean. We can barely hear this dishwasher. However, since the controls are inside, we never really know what's happening when it's running. Other than that, we love this dishwasher!

Yes, I recommend this product

So quiet and efficent!

Super quiet!

DK 9/24/2017

We've only had this a week, but it's the quietest dishwasher I've ever experienced. You literally can't tell it's running. The layout inside accommodates everything, and dishes come out clean and bone dry.

Extremely quiet. Like upper tray to put flat lids and silverware in.

Yes, I recommend this product

Love my new dishwasher

Dru 9/23/2017

Love the new dishwasher. Easy to use, cleans really well, heating dry feature dries almost everything. Racks are easy to use or change for larger dishes or pots. Third rack is easily removable but the mechanisms for it seem a little flimsy or wobbly. I hope it holds up well because I like having that upper rack for silverware or large utensils. All in all it is a beautiful machine inside and out. So so quiet too!!

Yes, I recommend this product

Great decision excellent

Yes, I recommend this product

Looks amazing

Tanya 9/21/2017

Looks really amazing, very quiet and works really well. Only negative is the thin plastic part you attach your water line too. It's a light blue in color and if you get it cross threaded it's ruined replacement part is $70.00. Why on earth you would have a metal piece attached to a plastic piece is beyond me but that's how it's made now. If you can get past that great dishwasher but you have to use a rinse aid or dishes will come out foggy and wet.

Yes, I recommend this product

So quiet. Cleans without any pre scrubbing

Mayflower 9/21/2017

I absolutely love this dishwasher. It is extremely quiet, if it wasn't for the small light that comes on I wouldn't even know it was running! The best part however is how great it washes my dishes. All my drinking glasses look brand new again. All my dishes come out spotless, this is absolutely my favorite appliance in the kitchen.

Yes, I recommend this product

Jeanine C 9/21/2017
