No dishes are left behind thanks to this KitchenAid 24" 39 dBA dishwasher. The nifty ProScrub option helps eliminate soaking or pre-scrubbing, so your dishes can go in right after a meal.

Soaking and pre-scrubbing is work your dishwasher should do for you. With this ProScrub feature, 40 targeted spray jets help remove baked-on foods, making your dishes sparkle.

The dishwasher ProWash option does a fine job getting our dishes clean. Haven't used the ProScrub or HeatDry options yet, except as a test. If we do the load at night, most everything except the tops of some cups, etc. are dry. If we open the door up soon after the ProWash cycle completes, there is more water to dry off. So, the extra hours of sitting after the load is finished seems to help dry the load. Plastic things, such as the silverware rack itself, still has water sitting on the flat areas so one has to be careful not to drip water on the floor when moving the silverware rack to the countertop when putting things away. Evidently plastic doesn't retain the heat so doesn't drip/dry easily in the closed dishwasher. But to save energy we prefer not to use the HeatDry option.

We don't find the top third rack useful. Hard to fit some knives with longer handles. The little "bumps" aren't very high - might be a better design to have some of different heights to rest things against. The rack area isn't deep enough to hold much - even our BBQ thongs or many spatulas and mixing spoons with a bit of a curve in the handle won't fit. We saw some models that had the third rack area divided into two pieces. That was a better design than one large rack on this model. One could use a half-rack and take the other side out. Then taller glasses, etc. could fit in the rack below on the side without the half-rack. Our only option is to take out the one large 3rd rack, which we did with the load last night so the wine glasses and our 10" Corning square skillet could fit without hitting the side wall nor washing arm.

We find odor problems if we keep the door closed between loads. We have started keeping the door ajar to keep it aired out so the odor doesn't bowl us over when we go to load additional dishes between loads.

The handles on our knives won't fit in the silverware slots so we took those off both sides of the silverware rack. A better design would be to have a silveware rack that would separate into two units or be two units. It takes up too much useful space now. Better design to be able to use one smaller rack on some loads so more pots and pans can be put in the leftover space.

The dishwasher is very quiet. We think it is the best feature. We've found work-arounds for the problems we noted above.

If we have the middle rack lowered down we can't load our 10 1/2" Corning Ware dishes without the sprayer arm hitting them.
If the middle rack is in the upper position, the 6 1/4" cereal bowl hits the top of the 3rd rack if placed in the center of the middle, the bowl's most logical place.

Various size wine glasses with stems hit the side of the dishwasher on the left side. The wine glass holders only hold 4 very narrow wine glasses or two red wine glasses.
Having the holder in the down position is good as you can rest more wine glasses against it so the base doesn't hit the side of the dishwasher when sliding the rack in/out. The dishwasher isn't real handy for washing stemmed wine glasses.

May be best to take into the store some of the things you expect to wash and see if they fit - before buying. It is flexible and hold a large load, the racks slide nicely and adjust easily, and it is quiet.

I purchased this dishwasher along with all my new home's Kitchenaid appliances, spending over twelve grand. The only thorn in my side has been the dishwasher. It hasn't worked right since the beginning and apparently, I didn't push hard enough at first when it didn't work properly because it was past the brief year warranty when I decided to stop dealing with the retailer I purchased it from and actually called Kitchenaid. After a non-productive conversation with that representative who basically told me I should be using the Affresh tabs once a month, sometimes two, to keep it running right.
I continued to contact my retailer who then finally replaced the chopper blade (he'd previously replaced the "controller")
But it's still not working right so I finally called Kitchenaid again because the retailer's repair guy is tired of fixing it. Kitchenaid (after 1 hr & 27 minutes on the phone - most of it on hold) the best they'd offer was to provide a part to "fix" it yet again. If this were my company and a product continued to malfunction/break within the first two years of it's lifetime, I would be so embarrassed and apologetic. I simply want my lemon of a dishwasher replaced with another one, same year, same model. I don't want to have to keep fixing it. Or like they offered... pay $288 for a warranty that would get me parts for another year (so I wouldn't have to allot over an hour of my time every few months that it stops working I guess!)
So disgusted with the company's lack of incentive to stand behind this product.

We bought this about a month ago - cleans the dishes very well, even when overfilled with Thanksgiving dinner dishes!! My only disappointment is that I have to wipe the water off the tops of glasses.

So far it's great compared to my 15 year old dishwasher

By Kris from OC

from Aliso Viejo, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 24 Dishwasher with ProScrub® Option - Black:

Only time will tell, but two of the best features are the lifting and lowering middle rack, and the removable 3rd rack. However, the parts that you have to use to move the middle rack, or remove the third rack seem pretty cheep and rickety, which is too bad for a $800 dishwasher. For today, it's fabulous! I love it! Unfortunately, I will be very surprised if I do not need to repair the parts/ mechanism used to adjust the racks before too long. I seriously doubt they will last 2 years let alone 15. Wish me luck. Everything else seems quite good. The noise level is nearly nonexistent. My kids didn't think I had turned it on yet. lol. That's pretty good! It washes well, but you can't exactly just throw dishes in with anything but chunks of food on it. It does need to at least need to be rinsed of the dirtier, heavier soiled food.

A poor design on the third rack...

By drbarney

from South Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 24 Dishwasher with ProScrub® Option - Black:

Overall, I am more or less satisfied with the dishwasher however, the third culinary rack interferes with the middle rack when you load cereal bowls. This is because there is not enough height between the two racks. And if you lower the middle rack you cannot load dinner plates because there is not enough height between the lower and the middle rack. Being an engineer and having worked with "Human Factors" in product design this is a very poor design. Also, the button sound "beep" is not load enough and the wrong frequency for most people to hear

Many Issues

By Amy

from Chicago, IL

Comments about KitchenAid 24 Dishwasher with ProScrub® Option - Black:

We have had this dishwasher less than 10 months and once again, we are having issues. The first one we purchased only lasted a week, as it was not draining properly. Thankfully, our appliance store replaced it free of charge. Now, the control panel is not working. We started having issues with it a few months ago, and assumed the panel was sensitive and the buttons needed to be pushed directly on the sensors. Finally, today, the start button will not work. And we now have to wait over a week for someone to take a look at it during the busy holiday season! Please do your research on other sites . . . they are many complaints about the control panels going out.

Comments about KitchenAid 24 Dishwasher with ProScrub® Option - Black:

We bought this dishwasher to replace a GE that we had had for 10 years. We were happy with our previous dishwasher and thought it was doing a great job- until we started using the new Kitchenaid. Wow! This dishwasher is so quiet that we do not believe it is even on. The dishes are crystal clean and our glasses look brand new. We are so glad that we made this purchase!

Moved on from an LG to the quietest dishwashers out there. I could not believe how quiet this dishwasher is and I could not believe it was on. Only the flashing blue led is your indication that it is running. Cleans all our dishes completely and love the smooth racks!
