Kitchen Aid KUDS02FRSS1
I hate my Kitchen Aid Dishwasher! I wish I had never gotten hooked on the Kitchen Aid name. My Kitchen Aid mixer is great and I've loved it for 10plus years with no problems. When we built our new house, we got a Kitchen Aid Fridge, Dishwasher, built in oven, warming drawer and dishwasher.
We've had them now for 2 years. The motor went on the dishwasher in the first 9 months. The dishes have never really gotten clean and for the last several months, the detergent box hasn't opened during the cycles. My husband has noticed that the cycles also go on for hours. Now the dishwasher has stopped working completely except for the blinking lights on the cancel button.
I looked up the warranty on the Kitchen Aid Dishwasher on line and found a Consumer affairs blog dozens of entries deep on how horrible Kitchen Aid dishwashers are.( http://www.consumeraffairs.com/homeowners/kit_dishwasher.ht ml ) I contacted the store where we purchased the machine and they insist that they are good machines and just have a few with problems, but from my own experience and the word of so many others, it's apparent that Kitchen Aid has a bunch of lemons in their inventory and won't stand behind them. There have been incidents of this brand causing fires and having doors fall and injure people in addition to the shoddy and unreliable performance. Rather than spend $300 to fix this current problem, we're going to cut our losses and buy another machine (Bosch or Miele) . DON'T BUY A KITCHEN AID DISHWASHER!!!!!!!!!!!!
