Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Disappointed

Submitted by Unhappy Customer - 5/29/2017

I would just like to say how disappointed I am in purchasing this Kitchenaid Dishwasher. In less than 2 years the control module must not be working so the dishwasher will no longer wash dishes using normal settings, in order to even remotely get the dishes clean I have to choose every setting and even then, it does not heat dry them. Also, your servicing agent, Johnson Appliance Service, is the worse excuse for a business or service repair; as they already mishandled one incident regarding warranty by not responding nor processing our claim. After months of hasseling with them to get the claim done, we ended up contacting Kitchenaid directly to get the part so we could repair it ourself. I will never buy another Kitchenaid product again. Extremely disappointed.

This dishwasher is super quiet, you can barely tell it is running. We have had iit nstalled about a month and are mostly very happy.

I have had Kitchen Aid products before. So, when my 15 year old Kitchen Aid dishwasher needed replacing, I wanted another Kitchen Aid. This new one is far mare efficient and so quietly running.

Excellent cleaning and runs quiet

Submitted by Carol C. - 2/5/2016

I purchased this unit two months ago and I am extremely happy with it. Cleans beautifully and runs so quietly you can barely hear it. The only down side is the controls being on the outside of the front panel. If you lean or bump into it, it will start a cycle. With just my husband and I at home this has not been an issue but, if you have children or others living in your home it might present a problem. A better design would be to have the controls on the top of the door.

Disappointed in KitchenAid

Submitted by Diana - 2/5/2016

I bought this dishwasher in December to replace another KitchenAid that only lasted 4 years.I really wasn't crazy about having another KitchenAid, but my options were limited. With this new one the racks are sturdy which I like; however, it does not hold as much as my old one. The major disappointing thing is that my dishes do not come out clean. I often have to rewash dishes from the top rack even after rinsing before loading. I have NEVER rinsed my dishes. Why have a dishwasher if I have to rinse? I use a rinse agent, but my dishes are still not always clean. At this point I would not recommend this dishwasher. It is quiet which is a big plus. The control panel is nice and the buttons are easy to operate. It has many features, but I wish I could just get a dishwasher with simple cycles that cleans and dries.

Nice dishwasher

Submitted by Nick - 12/8/2015

Washed our first load on the NORMAL cycle and results were disappointing dishes and inside of washer wet and not totally clean. Then switched to PROWASH cycle and results were much better.... Joni happy to have sparkling clean silverware for a change. Not too bad to install, and very quiet operation. Only real problem is that it is hard to open the door when fully-closed.... Joni has to use both hands and still difficult for her, so I open it at the end of the wash/dry process and she doesn't close it fully until ready to start the next load. Difficult to raise the top rack to the upper position when in the lowered position. Overall a very nice product.

Clean look

Submitted by Curbie - 12/1/2015

We recently remodeled our kitchen. The existing dishwasher was so old it sounded like an airplane taking off during the wash cycle. I couldn't wait to install the new KitchenAid dishwasher. It is very quiet and cleans remarkably well. I love the little features like the stemware holder that keeps your wine glasses from falling over. The dishwasher has been operational for about a month now and we have had no issues or problems. I would highly recommend KitchenAid dishwashers.

It cleans the dishes as advertised. Its a "green" dishwasher and saves lots of water but the trade off is very long cleaning cycle. Door seal may be too good. I have to really pull to open the door and the plastic flexes. I'm concerned about plastic fatigue.

Very Nice Dishwasher

Submitted by eric - 10/29/2015

This is to replace a old and dead unit. The first thing I noticed is how very Q U I E T it is. So well muffled that you need to get close to hear it run. I Like the stainless steel interior and how easy it is to shift the racks to fit the dishes being cleaned. I have run a couple loads and all were cleaned better than expected. We have hard water in our area so the absence of any water spots was greatly appreciated. The drying feature worked very well leaving only the deepest undented mugs with a small amount of water left on top.(bottom of cup/mug) I also like the many options for which cleaning cycle to use.

Whispering Dishwasher

Submitted by waikalulu - 9/29/2015

Can not believe how quiet this dishwasher is. This is the BEST part of it. We have had it just a month and because there is just two of us so have not had an opportunity to use it much. When purchasing it we did not notice that this had a stainless steel interior. It will be interesting to see how bad water stains may get over time. There has been a odor and don't know if it just the "new" smell or from food left on plates. We never had that problem from the old dishwasher. When pulling out the bottom rack it easily comes off the track which surprised me. Not hard to get it back on but I know that I need to be careful if I'm putting in china on the bottom. The "spokes" are pretty close together so it seems that I can't get large soup bowls in as easily as I was with my old dishwasher. So it seems that I can't put in as much dishes in with one wash but for just the two of us that is not going to be a problem. Controls are easy to use and wish there was more than just a 4hr delay.

Very happy with my choice

Submitted by TravelKat - 9/24/2015

I've had this for a several months now and I'm pretty happy with it. I have mostly pros, but a few cons: I replaced a 26-year old dishwasher so not having to pre-rinse was foreign to me but certainly got used to it fast! I'm so pleased with how well it cleans dirty plates, baked-on casserole dishes, pots & pans, and even my crockpot. I scrape off big pieces of food but pre-rinse none of the above. I don't even always use the pro-scrub option for the really baked on stuff, it cleans all of that stuff so well on normal wash. I do pre-rinse utensils though. With the utensil basket along the right side wall and plates lined up next to it, I feel it hinders the amount of water reaching the utensils and once in a while I'd find a still-dirty fork or spoon. So I'm mindful of that when loading and try not to put cutting boards or tall plates next to the utensil holder. Keeping the removable slotted top on the utensil holder works best because it keeps the utensils from nesting together. The spray arm under the top rack is great. Burnt-on saucepans on the top rack come out just as clean as stuff on the bottom rack. I love the bottle clips to secure small, lightweight items to the top rack, wish it came with a few more. Wasn't crazy about idea of having to clean the filter but it pops out easy & you just rinse it off. I do it monthly and because I do scrape big stuff off plates before loading, it's not bad at all. This thing is SO QUIET. I love that I can run it while we're still sitting at the dinner table. You literally have to stand right in front of it to hear it run. Heated drying option dries everything well, but I do find water droplets on the right side of the back wall, and a small puddle on the utensil basket handle and the 2 handles that raise and lower top rack. Heating drying is definitely a must because without it everything is wet and spotty. With my old dishwasher I used a liquid gel detergent and no rinse aid (it left a few water spots but not bad at all.) I tried that with this dishwasher and it cleaned fine, but it left the dishes wet & very spotty. I definitely get the best drying results when using the recommended detergent and rinse aid that came with it. I do put plastic food storage containers on top rack, and plastic serving spoons, spatulas, etc. But not the flexible soft-rubber coated utensils because they seem to be left with detergent or rinse aid residue. I very much like some of the flexibility features like the adjustable top rack, and moveable/fold down tines. I would have preferred a mechanical control panel vs digital but that's a thing of the past and only seems to be available on very low-end dishwashers. I do have to keep the control lock on when not in use because the control panel is sensitive and everyone seems to lean against it and turn it on by accident. There is an identical model with hidden controls but I had to draw the line somewhere on price and it wasn't worth the extra $ to me. So, of course it's not perfect, I don't feel there is such a thing. I've had to adapt here and there to get the most out of it. But overall, I feel it works really well and I'm very happy with my purchase. Sorry for the lengthy review, but I find detailed reviews to be helpful to me, so I hope this can be helpful to someone else.

Submitted by Kihei Ray - 9/23/2015

I can't say enough superlatives about the cleaning capability and the quietness of operation with this dishwasher. The racks slide with no effort, and it really doesn't matter the orientation of the dishes. Everything comes out great. We have hard water and use Finish Powerball Detergent. Glasses that had a calcium buildup with our old dishwasher became clean as new. Most any homeowner can replace this dishwasher themselves. The only installation comment I have is that the installation kit should have included the 3/8th inch Compression x 3/4 inch 90 degree hose water supply fitting by default. This is a required fitting. Save time and read the install PDF online before installing! The required part is only $7.00 at your "local" Appliance Store (part number Whirlpool W10273460).

Garbage

Submitted by Ellen - 9/18/2015

This is my third KitchenAide and I will never buy another. The machine doesn't clean, doesn't dry and when you lean against it, although it is as far back as it can go, it automatically goes on so I have to press Lock, which doesn't always work.

No, I do not recommend this product

Very Quiet

Submitted by Jean - 9/17/2015

I purchaed this dishwasher about a month and a half ago. The dishes were not drying after the heated cycle. Upon calling KitchenAid I was told to use a drying product (Jet Dry). I had puchased and was using the all in one tablets. This was not sufficient. Once I put the liquid dying product in the dishwasher the problem was solved. There are a few dishes that have not been completely clean like baked items but overall the unit is functioning very well. It is the quietess dishwasher that I have ever owned.

Quiet, very quiet

Submitted by Mitch - 9/17/2015

For real, this is the quietest dishwasher I have ever had. I have had 4 dishwashers before this one. The matags promised to be quiet but were not quiet and didn't wash the dishes very well. The Ge was an amazing cleaner but had to run it when we were gone or at nght to avoid the noise. Our new KitchenAide works well and we don't even hear it run. I'm not kidding when I say the kitchen sink drain on drain cycle makes more noise than the dishwasher. Thanks, John Lanclos
