arms do not spin
By frustrated mom of five
from pittsburgh pa
Comments about KitchenAid 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:
Have been using for a year, do not like to give bad reviews but I finally am going to say this dishwasher is really bad. It's quiet;maybe because the arms don't spin? I have to wash my dishes before I wash my dishes... very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

does not fully drain--foul smell
from Elizabethtown, Pa
This dishwasher cleans dishes, but has had a foul smell from the beginning. There is an inch of water that doesn't fully drain. We had it serviced from the company from which we purchased and had it installed. We were told the water is supposed to be there. Don't even try to get a real person on the phone. I tried five times and after the long wait time I was disconnected twice. Thought I'd try live chat and that has been disabled.I'd expect better customer service for the price we paid for this dishwasher.
Super Solid and Quiet
This dishwasher is very well built. Each component moves with ease to allow different size dishes on each shelf. It runs so quietly we aren't even aware of it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Smells and Not drying
from Sacramento, CA
We purchased the matching dishwasher, fridge and stove for our kitchen remodel. We have been happy with the other appliances. However, there is a metallic smell that comes out after each cycle and the dishes are wet, even on the drying cycle. I have to make sure to open the dishwasher immediately after the cycle to get the dishes to dry. I could live with the dishes not drying, not that I think I should have too at this price point. But, the smell is terrible. My daughter drank water from a glass last night that just came out of the dishwasher and there is an after taste in your mouth.

This dishwasher is super quiet and does an excellent job. It is so quiet, I have sometimes gone to check if it is actually running! I really like the silverware rack, which has slots for each piece, so I don't have to worry about pieces nesting if someone else (i.e., husband) loads dishwasher. The third rack is especially useful when dishwasher is full; the additional space is welcome! I also use the stemware pulldowns regularly and have adjusted the top rack occasionally. It is also thrifty with water.Only downside: cycle length. It takes a LONG time to finish a cycle! However, I happily put up with that for all the positives!
By New Build
Dishwasher install in a new home build, only to find out that our dinner plates will not fit - we are washing by hand. Frustrating that I will need to buy new plates. Other than that the dish washer is very quiet.
Love this dishwasher!
from Englewood, FL
Love this dishwasher. It's sooooo quiet, has plenty of options and I no longer need to "pre-wash" my dishes. Having 3 racks with one totally dedicated to silverware is great. The only drawback is that with that top rack, you give up some height for your 2nd rack. The 2nd rack is adjustable but then you give up room for the bottom rack and then my plates won't fit. I have several large Tervis tumblers and smoothie cups that are too tall to fit on the 2nd rack so I have to put them on the bottom rack--so far no melted cups. Overall this is the best dishwasher for the money.
Works well. Quiet.
from Canton, Ga
We had this same dishwasher which we bought only 10 years ago. The pump and motor were on their last legs and would have to be replaced, so we shopped for a new dishwasher. This was far, far too early for replacement in my opinion. Nonetheless we both liked this model with the third rack on top - ideal for knives - and we bought the newer model, hoping that pump and motor would last longer this time. It's quiet and cleans very well. Often we can do fine using only the "light China" mode.This new model has a sump for debris which is easy to clean, unlike the older model. BUT my wife liked the flexibility of the bottom drawer of the OLDER model. Fortunately, we could take the bottom drawer out of the old one and put it in the new one. The silverware holder in the new one is superior to that in the old one.

After one year of use, so far so good. We bought the optional Dry, it's worth it. It's very silent, clean very well.
Kitchen Aid KTA 24 Dishwasher
I reviewed the installation instructions before the dishwasher was delivered and was surprised that the water feed connection on the dishwasher was not included. Before I could tell the distributer to include one, he already had. That would be my only complaint with Kitchen Aid. Installation was easy, the dishwasher is extremely quite and dishes come out clean...
