    i purchased this washer about ten months ago at best buy . it works just fine,less noise, long washing time. but ten months later, the stainless interior is rusting on all side and bottom part. I'm using the recommended finish soap and liquid cleaner, still rust develops. i don't think that the rust is going away all

    problems with dishwasher
    by: Anonymous

    I purchased 2 identical dishwasher, or so we thought
    the one dishwasher is working properly and the other is giving us nothing but grief.

    It has been close to 5 years since we purchased the 2 machines and the one has problems discharging the water at the end of the cycle. Soap suds keep coming out and yet we use the same electrasol tablets in both machines.

    The main problem is that you cannot get technical help from Kitchenaid itself. they don't have the
    the proper customer support as in the past.

    I am sorry I purchased these Kitchenaid dishwashers.
