Comments about KitchenAid 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:
We purchased this dishwasher about 3 weeks ago. It replaced a 25 year old Maytag that was still working, but starting to show it's age. Compared to the old dishwasher, the low noise level of the Kitchen Aid is absolutely amazing. The only noise that is noticeable is a slight gurgle in the drain as it empties. We are very happy with this purchase so far and we hope it lasts as long as the old Maytag did.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My new KitchenAid dishwasher was installed about six weeks ago. It replaced my old machine, also a KitchenAid, which was almost 20 years old. I was remodeling the entire kitchen, so it was time for a new model. Without the remodel, however, I would have just kept the old one. During those 20 years I never had one problem with it. (I used it typically two or three times a week.)Unlike the old model, however, which was a little noisy, the new one is almost silent. Mine is an eat-in kitchen, so having a quiet dishwasher is important. The first time I used it I had to keep looking at the little blue light to be sure that it was actually on. That's how quiet it is.It also does a good job of washing and drying the dishes, and I don't mind that a complete cycle takes about 3 hours. I should add that I do not follow the manufacturer's recommendations and run the Rinse Only cycle, letting the dishes wait for three or four days before running it. We live in Northern California and are in the fourth year of a terrible drought, so running this cycle just wastes precious water. Even without prerinsing, the dishes come out just fine.I am very happy with this machine. The price was right, and my experience with the older model made me confident that I was making the right decision. (My other choice was Bosch, but I didn't like its layout as well as the KitchenAid's.) Another good point: It's made in the US.

Dishwasher in the island
Okay but very long cycle times
from Kirkland, WA
I bought this dishwasher a couple of weeks ago to replace a 1998 KitchenAid Advanta dishwasher. I'm disappointed with the new "energy efficient" dishwashers that have extremely long cycle times. We always pre-rinse our dishes and even then the shortest cycle time we've ever had was 2 hours. When we add sanirinse and ProDry options the cycle time is over 4.5 hours. It's using less water but I'd much prefer our old dishwasher that used more water but could finish a full cycle with sanirinse and dry in under 2 hours. The ProDry option also is not worth it in my opinion. The glassware comes out dry but any plastic components are still wet and there is a significant amount of water in the dishwasher that is on all of the racks and internal components. Our old dishwasher did a far better job of drying than the new one even when the old one wasn't using the heated dry option, just the standard air dry. Again I assume this is in the guise of energy efficiency. Sorry I realize all new dishwashers have to adhere to EnergyStar requirements but I feel there should be a compromise between performance and energy efficiency. There should be an option to select a less efficient mode to speed things up. Even the top-rack only mode only shaves about 7 minutes off the cycle time. The express wash mode doesn't allow for the SaniRinse option which is why I don't use that one but even then the manual says it takes an hour.On the plus side the dishwasher is extremely quiet and looks great.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Does all that I hoped for!

We were looking for a quiet, energy efficient dishwasher that gets the job done. It has exceeded our expectations and is also a very nice looking machine.
Very Quiet Operation - Solid & Attractive Handle
By Nancy Jo
from Benton Harbor, MI, United States
This Dishwasher is extremely quiet. I could not hear any noise and had to open it to make sure it was running! The handle does not take up much room in the front of the dishwasher and it is solid & secure. Very easy dishwasher to operate and my dishes are very clean.

Don't waste your money.
By DISAPPOINTED T00

This unit is quiet in operation and has several wash options, but other than that this is a piece of junk and I regret purchasing it. The racks are junk and didn't hold up at all. Being stainless steel it is a pain to keep clean, especially if you have children. Don't purchase it save your money.
Wonderful - as expected for the price -
from Montana, United States
Been a week or so on this new dishwasher ?Love the quiet and positive feel ? We have to look at the light to see if it is on.Love the built in look ? Love how clean it gets stuff -Hate the top rack ? the real thin one ?Seems not to be good for anything ? we put silverware in the racks below ?We use the pint bar glasses as our regular drinking glasses ? they won?t fit on the top (middle) rack with the thin (highest) rack in place ?The top thin rack can be easily removed - Once we removed that rack, everything works well for loading ? like in our old KitchenaidTotally love it ? (but recommend the top rack be removed).

Works wonderfully, even the top silverware rack. Extra quiet, you hardly know it's running.

You get what you pay for. This is by far the best dishwasher we have ever owned from a performance standpoint. It is beyond quiet; the only way you know it's on is by checking the operating lights. It really cleans courtesy of the multitude of jets it has on its three shelves, the back wall and the corners and the water temperature inside if so selected. The reason this is so important is that environmental nonsense has removed the cleaning power from dishwasher detergents, thus the dishwasher has to pick up the slack as chemicals no longer provide the cleaning power they used to. It therefore follows that lesser dishwashers either no longer do the job properly or the dishes need to be thoroughly "pre-rinsed", which defeats the purpose of a dishwasher in my opinion. All this comes at a price, which is the duration of most operating cycles...they can be up to four hours. Since it it so incredibly quiet it can easily be operated during sleeping hours without disturbing anyone. So if you're not into instant gratification and somewhat organized in your daily routine this is your dishwasher. This piece of equipment has surpassed our performance expectations! It is our fervent hope that this one will last longer than the Kitchenaid model KUPD02FRSS it replaces. It lasted only seven years or about 2,500 cycles.
