This is the worst appliance ever. We bought kitchenaid for quality but the use of low quality plastic parts have broken at least twice on our dishwasher in less than 18 months making the top rack virtually unusable. When working, the dish washer was not very efficient requiring very careful loading (and almost nothing on the bottom rack) or it would not clean the dishes.
I notice that the particular model we bought is no longer available but I would not be fooled. I will never purchase another kitchenaid appliance...ever. Models KUDS30 CXSS0
Stay away and save yourself the headaches.
