Great Idea, Terrible Execution

This dishwasher came with the purchase of the house, which we completed in May 2016. Since then, we have contacted our home warranty company three times due to the dishwasher either not cleaning, not draining, leaking, or a combination of all three. In addition to the continual failures, neither drawer is easy to load (think Tetris for your dishes) and the capacity, due to the dual drawers rather than one single tub, is lacking, especially for awkward items (tall, long, etc...). There is a reason KitchenAid no longer manufactures dishwashers of this type.

We are long time drawer dishwasher owners. A service call involving an inexperienced tech resulted in our first Kitchenaid drawers being damaged beyond repair. Accolades to the staff at KitchenAid HQ. They assisted us in navigating through the debacle the repair tech and their company created. Ultimately, Kitchenaid told them buy us a new dishwasher of our choosing. Our damaged K/A Architect Series was manufactured by F/P (KUDD01DPPA). It was no longer available new. We went back to Pacific Sales where we purchased our first set of drawers eight years ago. It was a new floor model. As luck would have it, the same PS store in San Juan Capistrano had another K/A drawer floor model. We were told the K/A brand was no longer available on drawer dishwashers after Approx. 2011. The KUDH03DTSS(3) Architect Series we purchased was the last version manufactured by K/A. It has a 3 at the end of the model number. It has only one drain hose vs. two connected via a "y" at the end of the hose. These last K/A drawers dishwashers are NOT made by Fisher Paykel. They are a much more stout and robust version made by Fulgor-Milano of Italy. The Fulgor/Kitchenaid drawers are slightly larger at 24"x23 3/8"x33 3/4" whereas the F/P drawers measure 22 7/8"x23 7/16"x32 5/16". This K/A-Fulgor drawer is a completely integrated (no buttons on exterior) and had zero wiggle room to fit under our counter with the pegs adjusted down 100%. It's the crème de la crème of all the drawers K/A ever offered. In Europe this D/W carries the Fulgor nameplate instead of K/A. The interior is a hair smaller due to the larger drawer slide rails. The interior of this D/W matches what K/A now offers in its full size high-end refrigerators as "Platinum." The illusion of flowing water is common to hear during normal operation. We heard of this prior to installing it and used "Hushmat" self-adhesive sound deadener to all but eliminate it. We installed it on the the drawers, making sure it was 100% clear of any parts that may run interference with it. Hushmat has decades of proven ability not come off in extreme heat, cold, or humidity. The ability to almost push the dishes off the counter into the drawers allows unlimited configurations to fill the dishwasher. Because of this, one drawer will hold almost as much as a conventional D/W. Remove a silverware basket on one or both drawers to allow even more room for huge pots. They can be loaded in like a kid's cup stacking game from smallest to largest. Our water chemistry requires us to use less than 1/4 full of D/W soap. This K/A or any D/W in our area will suffer hard water stains if more is used w/o a soft water machine hooked up to the home. Lastly, the drawers' high efficiency. In our drought conditions, drawers are the way to go. This is not the D/W advertised on TV that removes dried on, burnt, meatloaf from a glass baking dish to new condition. It's just close to it though. Using less than half the water of a hinged D/W, the drawers only have a bad rap from unqualified techs who service them. Coastline Appliance in Huntington Beach was referred by K/A HQ to service our K/A French Door fridge. They quickly correctly diagnosed weird, unusual issues with Zero callbacks with both techs that came out. We couldn't imagine not having all the features and options that KitchenAid offers in their Architect Series product line.

I bought it when we moved in to my new house, and Ive been using it since. I absolutely love it, It is quiet, it is good looking, and it washes really good.

Nifty idea, but breaks too easily

Broke within a year of use. Poor quality. Top drawer leaks, and the bottom drawer has an electronic malfunction and now won't run. Only used the thing about once a week, at that. Never really got dishes clean either. I don't normally write these reviews, and generally I am untrusting of the negative ones. But I feel that this is a really poor quality product, or at least my experience with this particular one has been pretty bad.

We've had this dishwasher about two years now and couldn't be happier. We were never able to fill a full dishwasher so the smaller capacity works much better for us. Dishes come out spotless. Highly recommend. Only gave it four stars on ease-of-use because it's a little tricky to get the dish detergent in it's fill location.
