          i highly recommend this dishwasher. My wife and I had a Frigidaire prior to this dishwasher. We ordered this unit in black to match the rest of our appliances. It does not let finger prints show up all over the unit. The inside of this unit is all stainless steel. It is so quiet!!! I can hardly tell when it is running. The cleaning cycle does take a long time but my dishes have never looked so good. It does an amazing job cleaning. There is a quick cycle but I have not tried it yet. The unit came highly recommended to me from a friend who repairs appliances for a living. He said this is one of the best units on the market. I did get the extended warranty though because we have kids and we use the dishwasher a lot. It was an investment but I could not be happier. It was money well spent!

              Read the online reviews. Upper shelf wheels broke one at a time after two years. Shelf did not line up, the wheels are junk and the axles cheap plastic. Now the motor is toast. I did not take a service contract, (for which I was admonished by the service rep when I called to complain). My last dishwasher was 15 years old and still working when I bought this "top of the line" dishwasher. It got only average use for a family of 4. Should not have broken.

              Excellent on time delivery and installation done quickly with all prices explained before work was done. It took 3 days before I had enough dishes to wash. Very roomy, Fits large dinner plates,bowls,pots,cups,tall drink glasses and wine glasses. Third rack for large utensils handy and I did not have to move any racks. Long wash cycle but it does have a quick wash feature. Replaced 15 yr old Kitchenaide and I'm very happy with it.

              We bought this dishwasher several weeks ago . Its much quieter than the old one, we have to look at the light to know that its running, that's how quiet it is. Dishes come out spotless just using the normal wash cycle.

              So far, we are very happy with this dishwasher. Love the third rack for cutlery. The machine is also very quiet.

              Quiet Dishwasher

              Comments about Kitchen-Aid 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:

              I bought this dishwasher in May during a kitchen remodel and started using it in June. The dishwasher is extremely quiet and most of the time I don't know it's even running. A few disappointing features for me, is the door is very heavy and you have to pull hard to open (I miss the easy pull). I'm not sure I'm liking the control panel at the top of the door verses the front of the door. I think the light should stay a bright red color or something when the dishes are done. It appears to take a very long time (like 3 hours or more) to wash a load of dishes and the heat dry still leaves a lot of water on dishes.

              Disappointing for price

              Comments about Kitchen-Aid 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:

              I bought this in April and have not been impressed at the capabilities for the price. Design: - The third rack or "culinary rack" seems to just get in the way and make the second rack less useful. - The weight of the racks make them roll out on their own causing difficulty in loading Function - Dishes require complete washing before washing. I left something as simple as sauteed veggie residue on the plates just to see what would happen and it still doesn't come clean. We have went as far as installing a water softener to improve performance and we still aren't impressed. It simply does not perform to expectations for the price. - Drying feature is average. It gets most of the bottom rack but still leaves substantial water on the top two racks requiring a hand dry each time we unload the dishwasher. - Its quiet, but that is the least of my concerns. I would take noise in exchange for clean and dry dishes.

              Love our new KitchenAid dishwasher!

              Comments about Kitchen-Aid 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:

              We've had our dishwasher now for a few months and love it! It was easy to install (I did it in less than 2 hours). It is incredibly quiet; sometimes we accidentally open it to put something in, not realizing it's already running! We can comfortably carry on conversations with friends while sitting a few feet away from it as it runs its cycle, something we could not do with our old Kenmore. The racks move smoothly in and out, and there's plenty of room for everything. The only drawback, and it's pretty nitpicky, is that the wheels on the lower racks have plastic rivets which allow some play in the wheels. Sometimes when you pull the lower rack out, the wheel catches the edge of the track on the door and bounces, creating a jangle of cutlery and dishes. You have to take some care to pull the lower rack straight out to avoid this.
