KitchenAid Architect Series II Built-In Dishwasher - KUDC03FVSS

This stainless steel dishwasher is great for middle-class homes since this is being sold at the stores at about $799.

There are many possibilities with this KitchenAid dishwasher because of its 14 place settings with 3 cycles and 5-level wash system. The top rack and the bottom rack have their own special cleaning arms to ensure that the contents of each rack are thoroughly clean after the cycle.

Space will not be a problem because the tines of the racks are adjustable in order to fit dishes of different sizes and shapes. It also has a high-capacity silverware basket to hold the silverware in the basket instead of laying them on the racks in order maximize the space of the tub.

Its hard food disposer reduces the time and the water that you will need to consume when dishwashing. You no longer need to rinse the plates prior to loading them into the machine. By using its heated dry feature, the dishes are ensured clean and ready to be stored.

The electronic controls make it easier to change the settings. The user may also take advantage of its lockout feature to prevent unintended changes and unsupervised use.

poorly made
by: Anonymous

My pulleys broke the other day. Had fixed and feels so tight. Also when repairman put back, it looks crooked but he says it's as far in as it can go. I swear I remember the front door being flush with cabinet and you could not see the hidden panel. Now I can fit my fingers in the panel area and it's not flush anymore and from side to side seems off. What should I do?

Don't Buy KitchenAid (or Whirlpool or Maytag)
by: Anonymous

Purchased a $800 KitchenAid dishwasher in Oct 2004 - Model KUDI01FLSS. Ratings were good and I thought it was a premium (albeit not luxury) brand. Piece of crap. Noisy, didn't clean very well, pulleys broke after a few years. To top it off, after 6 years the control panel caught fire, fortunately wife was home and was able to cutoff the power since cancel button didn't work. Called to complain and was initially told, "it's six years old, that's about how long dishwashers should last." Several more calls, and they sent a repair guy out to check it out - they said they'd cover the labor, but estimate was almost $500 for parts (labor would have doubled the repair to $1,000!). Several more calls to Whirlpool (the actual manufactuer who also makes the KitchenAid & Maytag brands) and I got them to offer a 20% discount on a replacement dishwasher from any of their 3 brandnames. It was tempting, but frankly not good enough for me to risk another purchase from this manufacturer. I will go with either a GE or Bosch.

Junk out of the box
by: Anonymous

Just got this dishwasher. Tryinbg to get the door to shut correct is next to impossible. The four foot levels are used to line up the door. Its junk. Flimsy and cheaply made. One of the feet broke off when I was sliding it into place. Its $800 not $200, stay away from it.
