I really expected better performance from KitchenAid as I love their other appliances. This dishwasher does a good job of getting the dishes clean when it works properly - unfortunately, the jets on ours get clogged and have to be cleaned frequently. Also, we have issue with the detergent door not opening (even when there is nothing even remotely close to it to block it.) We've also had to replace the silverware basket twice as the bottom grid breaks and then the silverware drops through. I also have to frequently clean the vent at the top of the door with a Q-tip because of the gunk that builds up there from the steam but that might be an issue with our water. Overall, I've been slightly disappointed with the performance and durability from KitchenAid - especially with the ticket price of this dishwasher.
