    Buyer Beware
    by: Yet Another Anonymous

    This Superba is NOT superb! Read LOTS of reviews if you are considering buying this machine. Then if you still want to actually purchase this KUDE70FXSS you would be foolish indeed not to buy a repair warrantee at time of purchase, because you will most assuredly NEED it!

    Our machine was installed in a new kitchen island in 2010. Only positive feature is that it operates quietly; it's never been great on cleaning. It's now apparent the &@#$% machine has been leaking for a VERY long time, given it's used only 2-3 times per week with our family of 2, and as a result, water has soaked into the interior woods/walls/footings of the island.

    Recently noticed water seeping from under the wooden island at the back of the dishwasher, the first sign of something amiss. Good thing we decided to purchase an after-sales repair warrantee at time of service appt. The repair is now up to $900+ and still counting.

    1st technician noticed lots of rust on the machine/wires,soap scum dried on tiles under the machine, and damaged wood when the machine was pulled out of the island. He ordered new tub, pump, motor. Door wouldn't close after repair, so 2nd tech ordered yet another part. Now awaiting 3rd repair appt. Warrantee will help with machine repair but not island damage. (We were told a warrantee bought at time of purchase would have covered the island damage, but that's a moot point now).

    Always thought Kitchen Aid to be a good product with strong customer service.........SOOO WRONG! Beware and good luck if you purchase this Kitchen Aid KUDE70FXSS dishwasher!

    Your dishwasher sucks
    by: Anonymous

    The built-in-the-door sensor has a mind of its own. The dishwasher worked okay until a week before the 1-year warranty was up. Then, after a dinner party and a full load, I went to press the "normal wash" and nothing happened. The panel lights didn't go on. I tried shutting off the breaker (as someone suggested) and nothing happened. Called the repair man from Sears who came 5 days later. I showed him what "didn't" happen and darned if the lights came on and the dishwasher started! He told me the sensor is VERY sensitive and can become confused if there is a power surge. Nothing he could do. So, I was able to put 2 more loads through in the week following and then the same thing happened again. Now it's been 3 days and I can't start the damned thing. No sense calling the repairman again because there's nothing he can do. So I wait....

    But tomorrow I'm going to Sears (in St. Catharines, ON) and blast the salesman and tell him NOT to sell any more of these "overly sensitive" dishwashers. KitchenAid dishwashers truly suck!

    This is the worst & most expensive dishwasher. It doesn't clean your dishes. The cheesy plastic part in the inside of the door melted. Now, the door comes crashing down and it's noisy.
