Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Improvements Needed

Submitted by Tino - 1/30/2018

Nice dishwasher. Very quiet and cleans exceptionally well but improvements need to be made with the lower tray. Alignment racks for the dishes does not allow them to stand. The dishes fall forward. Also, spaces for larger bowls do not exist. Poorly designed.

I have had this dishwasher for several months and am very pleased with it. Not only is it quiet but it does a great job with the dishes. They come out very clean. I also do not have water pooled up on them after the drying cycle which was a problem with my old dishwasher.

Washes dishes well

1/7/2017

Great "middle or the line" dishwasher. Washes and drys well. Never had to wash twice. It does have a heater to heat water and dry dishes. Was concerned about the vent on the side of door venting to the adjacent cabinet. Googled the vent to find the purpose and found others having problems. Even caused moisture damage to some cabinets. Salesperson didn't know what this vent was for, but didn't think it would be a problem and said If it did cause a problem, I can return it. After using it for about a year now, I can say for sure this is not a vent for the heating cycle. More like a vent for the control panel. Does feel warm at times, but not enough to cause any problems. But if there's steam coming out like in some reviews, there's something wrong internally and needs to be serviced.

I'm a bit disappointed with the noise level but this dishwasher cleans very well and the noise is not terrible. After it was installed, we ran it empty just to clean it. After we washed the first load, I noticed a bad odor from the dishwasher every time I opened to add dishes (we always rinse our dishes before loading even though the manual says you don't have to) . After running the second load through, I don't notice the odor so much, so it may just be because it is so new. I'm hoping it gets better.

I love the new dishwasher. Gone are the days of washing dishes after they've run through the dishwasher. My mom was visiting and was impressed that she hadn't rinsed/washed before loading and everything still comes out sparkling! Of course, there always has to be one gotcha. This. thing. is. slow. Seems like a normal cycle takes about forever! Honestly, it hasn't been a real issue and it runs so quietly that it doesn't interrupt the evening. All-in-all - I'm glad we picked this dishwasher. Highly recommended!

My dishwasher experiences

4/30/2016

I am replacing a KitchenAid with this KitchenAid, they both have worked great. My one complaint is that when I spend a $1,000.00 on an appliance I expect it to last more than 7 years. The dishwasher I had before my KitchenAid lasted 14 years and was only $350.00 but, it didn't clean as well as the KitchenAid and was very loud.

It was a good purchase from the perspective of getting exactly what we had hoped for. Best feature? the little light on the front that lets you know if it's running, off, or done. Second? The arrangement of the racks inside. Good utility there. Worst? the start button which you seem to have to hit three times any time you want to do anything...like add a dish.

Recommend with caveat, make sure your kind of dishes will fit in this dishwasher. We replaced existing Kitchen Aid dishwasher that was 10 years old New one's design is less user friendly. Dishes don't want to stand up, seems like less room than last dishwasher. Would not buy this particular model again.

Sleek look, perfectly quiet

3/18/2016

I love the look, the performance and the exceptional quietness of this dishwasher. It is so quiet I have to look at the lights to see if it's running. The only drawback it has is the compartments of the silverware tray. There are sliding covers so small items don't get loose and also slots for the silverware but you cannot slide them open to add objects into it if you already have silverware in the slits. And I use those compartments often. I like the inside design of my old Kitchenaide dishwasher much better. Otherwise, this would rate a 10 out of 10.
