Product Reviews
Rated 1.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not up to KitchenAid Standards I purchased this machine in January 2011 via Interenet observation. How disappointed I was! Especially because I heard KITCHENAID was a superior product. Well, it has been an experience, and a bad one at that. The diswasher was delivered, and I was surprised at the chintzy racks. I thought to myself could these possibly last? Well, not only did the racks not last, but the diswasher itself burned out within a month. The store I purchased it from replaced it with a brand new (same model) dishwasher, with the same cheap plastic racks. Within 5 months the rack tracking system broke as well as the wheels on the rack fell off. This time I called KitchenAid and they said they would send a repair man. I waited all day, though he was supposed to arrive prior to 3 PM. At 5PM I receive a call staing he is on his way, and five minutes later I receive a call stating that the repairman was rerouted to an emergency and they had "no one else to send,though they could get to me a week later". 7/24/11
Rated 1 out of 5 by LEAKING! This dishwasher has been leaking since DAY 1. Five repairmen, two different parts, still leaking. 9/29/11
Rated 1 out of 5 by worst ever dishwasher i have the kitchen aid panel ready diswaher kuds03ftpa2. if you have granite, you cannot see the cycle buttons as they are hidden. you have to stand by the dishwaher for several minutes to make sure it goes on and then u never know when it is done as you cannot see the cycle buttons. the dishwasher cleans so poorly that i need to wash items after, that did not clean in the diswasher. the soap dispenser sticks and at times does not get the soap all the way into the machine. globs of soap can be found dripping down the door and i use liquid dishwasher soap and not the powder. the expense of this dishwasher and the poor job it does is VERY frustrating. i bought a basic Maytag recently for my summer home and i just love it. it does a super job so....bottom line choose any brand but kitchen aid. 2/23/12
