We bought a new set of aplliances about 20 months ago now and among them was a kitchenaid diswasher. I have to say I have never in my life had so many problems with anything i have purchased.
It was about a month into ownership and the thing was loud (I MEAN LOUD) right out of the box and one day it doesnt drain. So since under warranty we call for repair. We meet the repair man (*** work) and it turns out there was anpiece of glass in the drain pump. The repair guy says thats my fault because i must have broke a glass in the dishwasher.
Now to be fair that could have happend but it didnt. I would remember breaking a glass in the past month and i didn't. That pump grinding noise was glass in the pump. So cleaned it out and left.
Couple weeks later the pump fails. The replace i think we are done. Then the washer pump fails so the company replaces the tub under warranty. Fast forward a couple more months and the dishwasher starts leaking about twice a month.
We call for repair and they tell us unless its leaking everytime we run it there is nothing they can do to fix but make some suggestions (rinse dishes before putting in, use less soap check spray arm for cracks etc. Frusterated we do all that the warranty expires and it still leaks. We thing from the overflow valve but hard to say since we are usually not home. At this piont the hardwood floor in the kitchen is buckling because of all the water leaking and standing on it about every 2 weeks.
Repair people wont come out because they say cut your losses you bought a lemon go buy a new one so about a month ago thats what i did. I wanted to wait a month to post this because i wasnt 100% certain it wasnt the plumbing but because of where the water stains on the floor were i figured it wasnt and the new dishwasher fixed. LEMON major repair 3 times in the first year didnt make it 2 years and destroyed our floor. In a just world kitchenaid would repair the floor and refund or replace the unit.
In the real world they wont return calls and you are on your own. Buyer beware. The great thing about the internet though is there is nothing stopping me from going online and telling everyone not to buy the highest rated dishwasher. Ill take them down a few stars!!
I like my new dishwasher though. It would be nice if they would at least come haul this piece of garbage away.
