    Sorry dishwasher
    by: Anonymous

    3/28/2015 KUDS301XSS Worse dishwasher I have ever owned. Does not clean dishes well! Top dish rack is cheap and wobbles when you roll it in and out! I will never buy Kitchen Aid again.

    Problem, after problem
    by: Anonymous

    So it's been problem after problem. We have had to replace the upper rack clips (things that hold the upper rack on) 2x & now the dishes are not comign out clean and it smells like something died in the dishwasher.

    & of course these is no information on where to even begin to fix this piece of crap. We purchased 3 kitchen aid appliances and I have been disappointed in all but the double oven.

    Perhaps instead of making more models, wish kitchen aid just make crap that works.

    If i could give it 0 no stars i would!
    by: Ellen

    I have spent $900 replacing the side panel of my cabinet because of leaks and steam issues with this machine. It is horrible. It cost more in damage so far than i paid for the damn thing! And it still doesnt work.

    Supposedly they are sending something to fix it. Seriously doubt it. Theyve already tried that. I will never ever buy another Kitchen Aid or Whirlpool appliance again. And PC Richards is no help. They sent some bozo who said it was the manufacturers problem. So what is the purpose of buying the extended warranty??? Will never buy from PCR again either!!!!

    I am so disgusted that i just might go to small claims court. The both are taking our money and giving us a defective product and no service both of which we paid our hard earned money for!!!!!

    Works Great!

    Did a lot of research before buying this model. Replaced our builder's unit (GE)- it was only 3 years old. This Kitchen Aid is sooo quiet. We love it! Each load comes out squeaky clean. And that's with our Hard Water. We do not use a rinse-aid either. Alround thumbs up for this model.The Pro-Scrub feature is great and works wonders on heavy stuck on food. My wife is eating her hat. I win. ;)

    KUDS30IXBT - Biscuit color version
    by: Tyrrell

    Genuinely subperb washing, exceptionally quiet, minimal prep to dishes before going in, always use the recommended Finish Powerball cleaner which achieves clean & clear results consistenly. Tried using up our old Cascade cleaner---results cloudy---so gave the Cascade away. No problems whatsover. Purchased in Nov 2011. By the way: "lack of filter" is NO issue---the machine has a superior chopping system that eliminates the need for filtering. I studying the mechanics of the system first before purchasing----and the detailed explanation convinced me and the results we have confirm it.

    As far as cutlery tray: we use the long silverware tray with the stand up sections plus the special front right corner tray for longer pieces. Works great.

    We went into the store to buy CR's 'Best Buys' but this machine had it all over those, once you studied them up close---and only cost slightly more. Very happy!

    From the time we bought this dishwasher it has been a problem. The gasket that lines the dishwasher to prevent it from leaking keeps coming loose. We have had service people come 4 times to reinstall it caulk it in. This doesn't work. We are now arguing to get a replacement dishwasher.
