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

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. 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.

Cleans well

Homeowner 1/3/2018

We like the dishwasher, but we've had trouble with the racks. The ball bearing has been repaired three times. It was covered under warranty but still was a pain. Washes really well

THE MACHINE LOOKS NICE

7/28/2017

I checked out the specs on the dishwasher before purchasing and saw that it was supposed to be extremely quiet besides all the other fab features. I wanted a quiet machine which I have had in the past. The machine, when it goes into certain cycles, makes a terrible extremely loud, grinding noise as though it is straining. I keep thinking the dishwasher is going to explode. Called service and the repair person didn't have a clue what it was. I also called KitchenAid and told them I wanted to know if this machine is supposed to sound this way. The person I spoke to didn't have a clue. She gave me the names of more repair people. If not for the noise, the machine works great.. 2 of my friends just bought BOSCH dishwashers and have to double check if the machine is on, it is so quiet. i GAVE THE MACHINE 2 STARS BECAUSE OF THE NOISE.

Quiet and effective

1/5/2017

The unit is sleek and understated with butttons hidden once the door is closed. Our only complaint thus far has been that tall items can interfere with the rotating spray bar and prevent complete cleaning. But otherwise, the washer has been trouble free and silent in its work.

This dishwasher came with our new house, along with all other Kitchen Aid appliances. Our last house also had all Kitchen Aid appliances. They've been consistently great, and go for a long time without repairs.

Is it running???

8/6/2015

This is the only kitchenmaid appliance I bought when we downsized to a new condo. We simply did not want to compromise. We are amazed how quiet it is--we've had to train ourselves to look at the LCD indicator on the door that tells you if it is on or what cycle it's in. You just can't hear it! It cleans amazingly well, but you have to use the rinse agent to reduce condensation after the drying cycle. There's a removable utensil tray that we removed on the top rack, but other than that the interior design is similar to other Kitchenmaid dishwashers we have owned--well planned out. The stainless steel front is sleek and blends in with our other brand appliances. This was a good purchase.

Best reliable dishwasher!

Barbei 4/26/2015

We replaced our old Kitchenaid with a new one. We like it so much, we didn't change brands and our new dishwasher doesn't disappoint. It holds a lot, is easy to load, dishes come out clean and dry, it's efficient and quiet.

Delightful Surprise!!

Happy Days 2/16/2015

We have now had our new KA dishwasher for a little over two weeks. Keeping in mind that we have owned Kitchenaid Dishwashers since the early 80's, might help you understand why we are so pleasantly surprised. We have struggled through poor models and the upper-end models for over two decades, so we are able to judge a good product when we find it. We love the fact that this machine is so quiet, but more important, we are impressed that our dishes, especially glasses, are spotless when they come out at the end of the cycle. We were concerned that the cycles were going to too long, but are happy they are not. They are not any longer than our previous KA, which was purchased in 2008. We don't find the loading much different than the other models we had, but we were happy to find that the noise improvement and the clean-ability are superior to our previous models, especially the KUDS0 3 CTWH model that we purchased in 2008. As you can see from the model number, the previous model was mid line and white; one of our reasons for changing was color; our other appliances are stainless steel, we also upgraded to this model, and are pleased that the decision to go with kitchen aid and this model was a good one. We are comfortable recommending it to those of you who haven't made up your mind.

Just a GREAT Dish Washer

Lynn and Phil 2/11/2015

We had the previous generation of this washer for about seven years and used it EVERY day. We never had a single problem, but it finally died. This ne wone is even better. It is extremely quiet, excellent at cleaning tough loads and just a great design.

Quiet as advertized

Awa1 2/1/2015

I selected the unit since it was to be installed in dinning/cooking combo area, and it turned out that it really IS quiet. I can not measure the decibells, but it doesn't interefere with even a low voice conversation. No complaints about washing, but the Cascade rinse aid is VERY important. The unit is a bit pricey, and it is hard to justify the price, if not installed where otherwise other models would be too noisy to carry conversation.

One Time wonder

idiots 1/23/2015

This Kichenaid dishwasher came with the house we built. A week before the home closing I ran the dishwasher through a complete cycle. The day before we were scheduled to close on the house there appeared to be no power to the dishwasher. A repairman was called and at the walkthru on our house, the dishwasher was turned on and it went through a complete cycle. When the moving van dropped off all our things I unloaded the boxes and put the glasses into the dishwasher. Again, there appeared to be no power to the dishwasher. A repairman was called and he said the motherboard was bad and proceeded to order the part, which took about 3 weeks. I was not able to use the dishwasher to clean any of my dishes or glasses, that had been in boxes for about 6 months. All through the Christmas and New Years holidays, no dishwasher. Finally, in January, the new motherboard was delivered. This time I have been successful in running two cycles. Not sure now long the dishwasher will work this time around

Great design and really quiet

TheChef 1/14/2015

We purchased this model during our kitchen remodeling project in October 2014. It does a great job of cleaning dishes and is so quiet we forget we turned it on. Unlike our old dishwasher this actually dries the dishes and with the rinse aide leaves no spots. So far so good.

Quiet dishwasher

Drexel mom 12/8/2014

We purchased the dishwasher because we have an open concept kitchen family room and the tv had to be blaring to be heard if the old dishwasher was on. This dishwasher is really quiet! We had to go to the unit to see if it is running. However it does have some drawbacks...if your flatware has large handles you can't use the separators in the baskets and some of my cups don't fit the top drawer easily. Not enough drawbacks to not recommend it if you are looking for a really quiet kitchen.

We've had the dishwasher about a month now and love it. It runs very quietly and the dishes come out clean and dry. I am noticing a bit of staining on the door and perhaps should try something different than Cascade. Other than that, we are extremely happy with our purchase.

Finally a dishwasher that cleans the dishes

Rocky2 12/3/2014

We have been using our Architect Series II for two months now and find it is an exceptional dishwasher. I had to convince my wife to leave the dishes dirty with dried on food to really test the performance. It washed extremely clean even with the toughest dried on food. My wife was used to having to clean the dishes before putting them in our previous dishwashers because they worked so poorly. I thought this Kitchenaid was a bit pricey but when we see the great job it does it is very well worth the investment. Quiet, cleans well, dishes fit well. I would recommend this to everyone. You will not be disappointed!

Super quiet

gjg18 11/22/2014

This is a very nice unit, extremely quiet. Does exactly what it's supposed to do without fuss, or special procedures. I had hoped that since it has a powered drying cycle it might dry up the little puddles of water often trapped on the upturned bottoms of mugs, etc., but I now understand that is not a reasonable expectation of most dishwashers. It does dry better than the passive style of drying we had in our previous machine, though, and no complaints about cleaning power--it does a great job there.

silence is golden

northfork investor 11/15/2014

i love the minimalist design of all the architect series II kitchenaid appliances. We chose this model because we have an open kitchen living room modern house and I want the dishwasher as quiet as possible after we entertain, this one is virtually not hearable. Also its operating features are terrific no matter what dish or glass washing task is at hand.

Mama P 11/14/2014

Bought this dishwasher and absolutely love everything about it. It has several cycles to choose from, small to tough loads, cleans exceptionally well, and is extremely quiet. You truly can't hear it running at all. Dishes, pots, and pans come out spotless. Love this dishwasher and would highly recommend it!

problematic racks

SAC1 10/29/2014

The upper rack broke within the first week of use - fortunately repaired/replaced by the local retailer. I have had to remove a section of wire rack from the bottom due to the movement and catching on the side which prevented easy closing. I do appreciate the quietness during operation

Good/Great - Minus one thing

STLSteve 10/21/2014

I love the dishwasher. However... It is extremely difficult to get my baking sheets to fit. I can squeeze one in on the left and it barely misses the rotating arm underneath the top rack but I can't squeeze in two. I noticed last night that the diagrams didn't include any baking sheets - but c'mon, they should fit too. This dishwasher does a great job and is unbelievably quite.

Quiet, Efficient

JanetBernadette 9/13/2014

We have had great experiences with KitchenAid dishwashers in the past, so were pleased to learn that it is still the most quiet model on the market. It also cleans everything wonderfully. We do wonder, however, who tested the top rack for configuration, as we have a lot of trouble getting our glassware and crystal to sit properly in any part of the rack, and haven't found a wine glass that will work in the slots provided to hold them in place. Also, we took the tops off the silverware racks, as with the slotted tops on them, you can't remove the silverware by the handles, which we'd rather do to keep them sanitary. For the quiet and efficiency, and the endurance we've enjoyed in the past, we probably would still have purchased a KitchenAid dishwasher.
