  • KitchenAid: Come to My Aid

    Feb 21, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: quiet, efficient, well laid out.
    Cons: none

    Summary: When Mom and Dad redid their kitchen, they hadn't planned on replacing the dishwasher. Their old one was working fine. Within a few months of having the kitchen finished, however, the old dishwasher decided it was time to die. All things have their alpha ... read more

    Pros: Looks good with the rest of my kitchen appliances.
    Cons: Doesn't clean

    Summary: I have hesitated for a long time in writing this review. This dishwasher came with the house we purchased 2.5 years ago. This thing has never worked well for us since day one. I don't know how the previous owners of the house tolerated it. But, the ... read more

    Pros: Very quiet, looks good.
    Cons: Doesn't clean dishes, service people inadequate, poor design.

    Summary: We purchased this dishwasher in 2001 when we purchased our house and bought all new appliances. Since it was kitchen aid (reputation...reputation...rep utation) we decided to go top of the line and bought this $1000 dishwasher. What a mistake. From ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's relatively quiet.
    Cons: The machine does not adequately clean dishes.

    Summary: We bought this KitchenAid dishwasher 3 years ago. The previous KitchenAid had served well for over 10 years, until it developed a hole in the tub; so we had no hesitation in buying this one. Big mistake! We had problems from the beginning. It did not ... read more

    Pros: Styling, options, efficiency
    Cons: reliability, built in obsolesence, dirty dishes, customer service, expensive parts,

    Summary: When our old kitchen aid dishwasher seemed dated, we decided to replace it with this newer model. The old model was noisy and probably energy inefficient, but really cleaned our dishes well. Since installing the new one it has been out of service as ... read more

    Pros: quiet. nicely organized.
    Cons: wrong chopper installed at factory backflow valve was design flaw. Ignorant Service personnel Poor design

    Summary: Have had this DW for over 3 years now. I went through the litany of chopper replacement (when the service man came, the original chopper wasnt even the correct piece! Quality manufacturing. Next, the backflow butterfly valve was apparently a "design ... read more

    Pros: Relatively quiet operation. Easy, intuitive controls.
    Cons: Inconsistent washing(see below). Badly placed silverware rack. Badly designed top rack. Miserable customer service.

    Summary: This is one of the worst appliances we have ever owned. We have had problems from about a year after it was purchased ... usually recurring failures to wash properly that could be corrected by running the rinse cycle a few times. We knew it was time ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Lots of room.
    Cons: Grinder Assembly Design Flaw

    Summary: I purchased this dishwasher in March 2002 primarily because of all the extra room it had. When it's working, I find that it cleans well. When the glasses start to come out fuzzy, then I know it's time to change the chopper assembly again. At first I ... read more
