my dishwasher

By 

from USA

Comments about KitchenAid Architect II K Series Dishwasher:

It is nice very useful and really quiet (which with 4 kids quiet is a must since my house is also loud enough! lol) and it is very easy to load as well. It also looks nice and completes my kitchen very well. My only issue is that I just find that i have to re wash loads quite often or that i have to really raise them very well before loading them for them to be clean when the load is finished. I have tried five different kinds of soap with the same results as well since at first i thought it may of just been the soap i was using but guess that wasn't it then. Other than that it works great though just seems to be a little more work before hand than other dishwashers i have used in the past but it is still a good product for the price for sure! I would definitely recommend others to buy this product as well as it is a very useful washer and makes my life a lot easier being i have tons of dishes all the time.

Moderately priced Kitchenaid dishwasher

By 

from Greenville, SC

Comments about KitchenAid Architect II K Series Dishwasher:

An energy star machine. It has a no pre-rinse sensor. For the most part I don't have to rinse dishes.Settings range from heavy duty to light china. There is a start/resume button that flashes to remind me to restart the machine if I choose to open the door to add a cup. Sani-rinse up to 155 degrees.

Not impressed

Comments about KitchenAid Architect II K Series Dishwasher:

I purchased this dishwasher only because my husband insisted that we get one. I have never been a fan of dishwashers and this particular one did not impress me at all. The total cleaning time takes too long and it uses a lot of hot water. Not to mention that I still have to rinse my dishes before putting them in. I can honestly say that the only good use I got put of it was more storage space for my pots and pans.

3.0

Not a unit I would highly recommend.

By 

from Roselle, IL

Comments about KitchenAid Architect II K Series Dishwasher:

While it does an adequate job cleaning plates and utensils, it tends to leave a fog on glasses. The unit is loud, the cycles seem overly long, and sometimes the utensils need to be wiped after washing.

Noise Level
Very loud in both the water heating cycle and the wash cycle.

Cleaning Time
Over 1 hour including drying time, serems a little long to me.

Loading Flexibility
One moveable rack, not much flexibility here.

Performance
See the overall review above.

Design
Adequate for tight spaces.

Durability
It has lasted for several years with minimal repairs.
