    Love this machine
    by: Lisha

    We have this model in our second home and a Bosch in our first. The Bosch is 14 years old and needs to be replaced in all fairness, loads can take up to 4 hours at least due to the heating element not working well.

    From the beginning we have loved the Kitchen Aid Architect series dishwasher. Clean, efficient, Dry dishes at the end of the cycle, no etching - we are thrilled and will be buying another to replace the Bosch.

    waste of money
    by: Anonymous

    An expensive piece of junk. Had to fix racks twice in the first year for plastic pieces breaking making the drawers not pull out, then with no notice the electrical panel just quit. 900 dollars+ for two years of junk. Also uses rinse aid like a camel drinks water and if you don't use it you can tell.

    What a Lemon!
    by: Anonymous

    This is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. The touch pad, the computer and the door switch all failed on the very first day we installed this machine. Kitchen Aid would not replace the machine, stating that it would be able to fix it - well, in 3 months when the parts were available.

    Bought this lemon on Oct 8th, and finally had the parts installed Dec 19! Got the run around from Kitchen Aid and the company we bought the machine from week after week. Never again!

    Works well
    by: Robert

    I find this machine works very well. Cleans excellent, leaves some water on plastic if you don;t use heat dry. Most of them do. Buttons are sensitive but that in itself is hardly reason to say it is a bad dishwasher.

    Worst appliance I have ever purchased
    by: Anonymous

    This machine is useless, does not clean, leaves spots on everything. All dishes have to be rinsed well before putting in the dishwasher. Controls are very difficult to use and are very sensitive. Very easy to brush against and reset. I am considering removing it and buying a different machine, and after paying almost $900. for it, that tells you just how useless this machine is.
