I bought this dishwasher based on several factors: I had a KitchenAid dishwasher in a previous house and loved it and Consumer Reports had it very highly rated. For the first two years of use, it has worked wonderfully, but the last month, the top rack kept coming off the rollers. Upon closer inspection, it was found to be broken plastic pieces on the rollers that had broken. Since I had bought the 5 year extended warranty through the company that I bought the dishwasher, I called and they ordered a new top rack roller kit that was easily obtained and installed. My only complaint is that if the company had already made a replacement kit with metal pieces, why didn't they send out a recall or replacement pieces to those that had already purchased this dishwasher. The dishwasher does a fantastic job in washing the dishes. It is extremely quiet. Otherwise, I love this dishwasher and would buy another. But, prior to purchase I will check out for plastic parts.

Junk! They Leak!

We purchased a Kitchenaid dishwasher in June of 2013; less than four years ago. Model # KUDE60HXSS5. We recently noticed that the wood flooring in our kitchen was warping. Then we saw water stains and damage to the ceiling and walls in our basement. All of this was in the vicinity of the dishwasher. We first called a plumber thinking it was a pipe leak. The plumber came and looked under the dishwasher. He told us that it was not a plumbing issue, it was the dishwasher itself and we needed to call an appliance repairman. That was a $50 charge. We called an appliance repairman. He looked at it and said that, among other things, it needed a new pump motor. That it was not worth repairing. He also said that it was impossible to tell how long that it was leaking. That was a $60 charge. So, in less than 4 years I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher that is a piece of junk! Not only are we having to go out and purchase a new dishwasher, we have to get the damage caused by this garbage appliance repaired. We need new flooring. We need someone to come in and repair the damaged drywall. All this, I fear, is going to cost several thousand dollars. And I worry about mold and additional water damage to the subflooring. I would never again consider a purchase of any Kitchen Aid appliance, nor would I recommend it to anyone! Not only do they sell inferior products, the junk caused damage to our home.

It was time to replace our 25yr old dishwasher so after some research online and reading reviews we selected KitchenAid. It is so quiet if not for the lights we would not know it was running. Lots of space and does a great job. No more washing dishes before we load dishwasher. Better than advertized!!!

Service every 14 months, yes just after the warranty

I have had this machine 2 years and it has required 3 service calls during that time with only weekly use.
