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.

Runs forever

Submitted by Jojo - 10/29/2017

The dishwasher looks good but takes forever to run a cycle. The control panel is located on the top of the door and is not visible. I have no clue as to what cycle the machine is on. The machine does not clean cooked on food very well and I need to Brillo the dish/pot after the cycle. I might as well clean the items by hand! The machine features side vents and water that dripped out from the first cycle has left a stain on the front surface and won't come off. I do not care for the top utensil tray that also doesn't do a very good job with cleaning. I miss my old dishwasher??

Submitted by Npne - 8/25/2017

Very quiet. I like top rack. On regular cycle does not clean very good. Have to re wash items. Also very low bottom rack. I had a dishwasher for 44 years a KitchenAid superb and I guess I was spoiled because that cleaned everything up until the last time I used it. It was still working when I took it out probably should've kept it

Fabulous machine

Submitted by Cbg - 8/15/2017

I bought this machine to replace its 20-year-old sibling that died. It cleans like a dream (absolutely no precleaning needed). Quiet and efficient. I opted for controls on the inside to avoid setting off machine as I had done with my other one. Also love the top drawer for flat tools. This is my third KitchenAid dishwasher. Each has been better than the one it replaced.

Excelent machine

Submitted by Beach guy - 8/13/2017

My wife and I are very pleased with our purchase. We are amazed at how quiet it is. The third rack is very handy for washing knives, utensils and my BBQ stuff. All the washes we have done so far has been pretty ordinary and not really tough stuff yet, so I can not comment on that yet. But it does a excellent job on what we have put in so far. We are very pleased and would recommend it to anyone.

High quality all around

Submitted by Kitchen cleanup king - 8/6/2017

The dishwasher is extremely quiet and easy to operate. And, it of course washes dishes extremely well. We love the feature of the third rack for flat or smaller pieces like spatulas, lids, yeti tops, etc. Finally, two problems from our previous dishwasher of another brand are absolutely not present on this one. First, it latches cleanly and easily, very solid. Never pops open during a cycle. Second, the controls at the top are solid material and won't crack and deteriorate over time.

Submitted by M - 8/4/2017

I'm comparing it to an old LG one that was supposedly not a great dishwasher. But I liked how my old one had a light in it This one doesn't seems silly but late night when you want to just stick a glass in it nice to be able to see. Also my other one dried better but it maybe I haven't figured how to use this one. I bought it because I wanted the cutlery tray but not sure it I love it. The inside seems not to roll as smooth and doesn't feel sturdy. But looks great.

Submitted by TMac - 7/24/2017

Finally my dishes are clean and the dishwasher is sparkling clean. I could not get my old Kitchenaid to get rid of a line of dirt and sludge at the front. My only wish is, that the top rack have one more setting for up or down. My dinner plates are large enough that I have to keep the glass rack up high, and that is too high to hold my glasses, or any wine glass!

Ultra-quiet and efficient washer

Submitted by Franco - 7/21/2017

This Kitchen Aid washer is very quiet and gets the dishes very clean. We bought it after our 8 year old Frigidaire decided June was a good month to die. It fit in the same cabinet as our old machine but hold at least twice the amount of dishes as the old one. The top utensil rack is a great feature. No more ladles falling off the rack and burning up on the heating coil. Looking forward to many years of clean dishes with this one.

Is it really running?

Submitted by House Husband Alan - 7/14/2017

We have had our Kitchen Aid dishwasher for three weeks now. We couldn't be more happier with our purchase. This morning my daughter was visiting, and I mentioned starting a load of dishes moments ago. She looked at me and said "you mean it is running, I cannot even hear it". The dishes have come out spotless, and when the system is allowed proper time to dry the dishes come out dry. We love the hidden buttons, and the clean look under the counter. I hooked it up myself, and it took me almost an hour for the install. This is only our second Kitchen Aid purchase for ourselves, and we are a satisfied customer.
