Great washing, but poor drying
from Los Gatos, CA
Comments about KitchenAid KDFE204EBL Dishwasher:
It does a great job washing the dishes, but a poor job drying them. Also, it would be better if the door would go down without it having to be pushed down.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Enjoying my new dishwasher with functional features. The Normal wash cycle take over two hours which is much longer than my old unit but adjusting to additional time required. I understand the water usage is less, so it's worth the time tradeoff here in California.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Provides great washing of all dishes
By David E
from Lehi, Utah
We bought this washer a month ago. It does a great job of cleaning the dishes, and a good job of drying them without added heat. It is easy to load and has a lot of capacity. We can't hear the washer running unless we stand right next to it. It looks great, and the buttons are easy to press. I would recommend this washer to others.
Cleans great, super quite, pro wash works as it should.
All the things I wanted are here and they work
So far I used the machine four times and the results are outstanding. Had trouble finding honest installers and did it myself. Directions and guidance in manuals are outstanding and had no trouble installing. My last kitchenaid dishwasher lasted 27 years. Hope this will maintain it's brand reputation. So far all systems go.
Super quiet, 3rd tray handy
from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
We bought this unit to replace a 15 year old Kitchenaid whose control board had gotten wonky (the heater element wouldn't turn off)... so here we are. We compared a LOT of different brands (Bosch,Miele, Samsung, LG, etc.) but we're sold on the large size, stainless steel bottom and reliability of the Kitchenaid models. We've had the dishwasher now for only two weeks, but so far, so good! Dishes come out clean, dry and intact, so we can't really ask for more. The third row rack has come in handier than we thought it would; this is where tiny espresso teaspoons, long spatulas and weird shaped flat things go. We don't do a lot of lasagnas and casseroles, so we have yet to test the power scrub mode, but thanksgiving is coming...Some niggly points though:- when the lower rack is front loaded (i.e.: dishes are stacked towards the door without anything in behind), the wheels tend to plunge into the crack between the door and the body, but only if the door isn't all the way open. I have lazy teens, so I hear the wheels drop in at least twice a day. This is an easy fix - load from the back, and open the door all the way!!! Grrr!!! Kids!!!-the buttons in the front are touch sensitive and accidentally get pressed opening and closing the door (we have the dishwasher variant *without* the handle); luckily it's just the wash options and not the start/stop buttons.-the LEDs are blindingly bright, but that's no big deal, it just makes it look like a starship control panel.-normal cycles take 2.5 hours at least, but we turn ours on at night, so again, no big deal. There's an express option that takes more water and power, but we haven't tried it yet.-the detergent holding cover seems REALLY flimsy and doesn't lock most of the time - I hope it lasts, but it seems like it won't, I've seen disposeable packaging that closes tighter. The holding clasp is thin plastic. It looks pretty easy to replace, but why??Overall we're pleased with the dishwasher and hope it lasts...
Very quiet machine. great third tier for silverware
from Schaumburg IL
We recently purchased however. my wife is a fan of Kitchen-aid appliances all the appliance we have in our kitchen are kITCHENAID. Very dependable appliance. There are practacelly no problems and runs smoothly.
Better than I hoped for
Have had this new dishwasher for a month and find it an extremely nice addition to my kitchen renewal project. It does a great job. My only problem is that it doesn't indicate the progression as well as my previous one: I was able to follow the status with a marked dial letting me know when it is filling, so I can run the hot water when needed for the next phase. After the initial starting period, when I run water into a dishpan and use it elsewhere, the water has to be heated by the dishwasher and makes the cycle longer. So far, this is the only down-side. It's quiet and very functional.

I have only owned this dish washer for a month, but I am very pleased with it's performance. It is very quiet and I haven't seen my dishes and glasses look this clean in a long time. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Really really quiet

This is a wonderful dishwasher. So quiet. Has an extra drawer for knives and spatulas. Dishes fit easily in it. More cycles then I'll ever use. Love it.
