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.

Buy something other than a KITCHENAID!

Submitted by JK - 12/26/2016

We went to buy a dishwasher in January 2015. We had decided on a dishwasher that was $600 and were ready to go when we were convinced to go with a KitchenAid dishwasher that was over $1200. It will last longer and cost us less in the long run. We had to wait for delivery because it wasn't in stock. Not a big deal, except we didn't have a working dishwasher and could've gotten it elsewhere for the same price in stock. Fast-forward 11 months and the control panel went out and the dishwasher didn't work. Kitchenaid sent out service and 2 weeks later, the control panel was replaced and the dishwasher worked again. Fast-forward another 11 months and again the dishwasher isn't working. Looks like we got a lemon for $1200. When I called KitchenAid, they told me there is limited warranty and the control panel is still under warranty but I have to pay for labor and diagnostics. RIDICULOUS. When I asked the service lady, Naomi, if she felt it acceptable for me to spend $1200 for a dishwasher that worked less than 2 years, she told me, "they aren't made to last like they used to be". Outrageous! I specifically bought the more expensive one so it would last longer. Kitchenaid won't stand by their products. Buy another brand!!

Washed great but took forever

Submitted by Roni - 12/6/2016

I'm not sure if I would recommend this. It cost a pretty penny. We had it a little over a year and it quit washing. Just getting a blue blinking light with "Add Dish" Icon on top blicking also right after we start the wash cycle. I emailed KitchenAid and have not received a response to the email about my problem. It calculated out to about $100 per year to own this machine. I can say that when it did work it worked fantastic. The dishes were very clean and sparkling. The total cycle took between 3 and 4 hours which I thought was a little too long.

Good when it works but complete motor failure in 2 years

Submitted by Andrew B - 10/17/2016

Purchased in June 2014 and initially loved the performance and low noise of the unit - sometimes when it ran you couldn't even tell! However, recently the performance started to degrade to the point that it isn't washing dishes at all. After speaking to Kitchenaid I was informed that it was a motor failure and that since it was past the 1 year warranty I would need to incur all costs, no flexibility or customer assistance at all. As a result I cannot justify recommending this unit to anyone - why pay more for something that breaks in two years?

Kitchen Aid KTA 24 Dishwasher

Submitted by Gene - 4/18/2016

I reviewed the installation instructions before the dishwasher was delivered and was surprised that the water feed connection on the dishwasher was not included. Before I could tell the distributer to include one, he already had. That would be my only complaint with Kitchen Aid. Installation was easy, the dishwasher is extremely quite and dishes come out clean...

Pleased with Kitchen Aid dishwasher

Submitted by V lady - 12/12/2015

Very pleased with my Kitchen Aid dishwasher-the features I like are this machine is so quiet, the racks slide out so easily, plus it does a very good job cleaning the dishes and etc. I am surprised how many dishes and utensils will fit in it, especially like the small tray on top rack that I can put miscellaneous items (like a whisk & measuring cups). Pleased with our purchase and would recommend it to others.

Amazing unit

Submitted by Gilks - 12/7/2015

I bought this a few weeks ago. We installed ourselves with ease. I've never had such a quiet dishwasher. You don't even know it's on until the water drains! I love how well it cleans and the racks are well designed for getting plenty of dishes in each load. I also like the rack for little things on the top rack.

Outstanding Performance

Submitted by Sarge - 9/29/2015

We picked this up on a clearance sale a couple of weeks ago. It cleans fantastic and once it's in the clean cycle is very quiet at 42db. For reference, normal conversation between 2 people is around 70db, so this machine is very quiet. Time will tell how long it continues to perform, but it is a "Kitchenaide", so I expect a long trouble free life out of it.

Great reliable product

Submitted by Big Daddy - 9/25/2015

This is our 2nd Kitchen Aid Dishwasher. Our first was 12 years old and both racks were in need of replacement (too damm much money for the replacement racks), so we opted for the new model. As always, we've felt that Kitchen Aid is a top product. Only one small problem. It was a floor model and while we didn't notice the small ding in the door near the bottom, the salesman didn't bother to point it out. The installation guys were great and they were the ones to tell us about it. Doesn't affect the functioning, but I'll never go back to that dealer. And, I've told my friends to stay away from that store.

Great dishwasher

Submitted by NJ - 9/23/2015

We have owned this dishwasher for about six months with no issues. Dishes are clean, the machine it is quiet, and the dishwasher looks good. Installation was easy, minus that I needed a fitting to hook up the water that it didn't come with, however, not sure if this issue was unique to us or not. The controls are easy to use and works great.

DO NOT BUY THIS ONE!

Submitted by millie - 9/18/2015

Bought January 2015. Initially cleaned just ok; however, at about 4 months, plastic clips and rotating wand part in top began falling off...won't stay on except for 2 washes after reattaching. Cleaning is poor unless the tough/pro cycle is used. Cycles are very LONG. Last night it ran all night (8 hours on Tough Cycle) without turning off...first time for this, but just one more thing that makes this machine get a DO NOT BUY from me! I have had KitchenAid dishwashers several times and NEVER experienced ANY problems with them.

Extremely quiet

Submitted by Tom the kayaker - 9/16/2015

Bought it a month ago and is it quiet. Glad for the light on front to tell it is on and what stage it is in. Not too happy with cleaning though. With a full,full load, I add an extra tab of detergent in the basin for the initial rinse stage to help clean. Otherwise, I end up with a lot of dirty dishes. Sure, I got it on sale, but for the retail price, I expected fantastic.

Good dishwasher

Submitted by MAG - 9/4/2015

We have had this unit in our new house for 2 months now. Using the proscrub option, the loads come out very clean, better than using the normal wash option. We are on well water thats a little hard so rinse aid is a must and set to the near highest position. We wash a lot of plastic items and even with the prodry design there is a lot of water on cups and such. The stainless surface cleans easier than we would have thought. By far the quietest dishwasher we have ever been around!

Most quiet dishwasher ever!

Submitted by Miss Sara - 8/30/2015

So quiet...that I only know that the dishwasher is functioning when I observe that the blue light is on! This dishwasher is one of the appliances chosen as part of recent total kitchen renovation...down to the studs. I actually surrendered a slightly older model of Bosch (which was in the kitchen when we bought the house) that was potentially salvageable. However, the interior of the older Bosch drove me nuts, one, because it was smaller (shorter depth) and, two, because the narrow slanted racks made it difficult to load with more than a few items. In the three months that we have owned this Kitchen, it has performed beautifully. Using a "normal" wash cycle, our dishes come out squeaky clean. (I confess to rinsing and scraping my dishes thoroughly before loading them, even though the sales person told us that that task was totally unnecessarily with a Kitchen Aid; even baked on egg washes easily. The racks are designed to accommodate a heavy load of dishes and pots of various sizes. In short, I am very pleased with our purchase.

I have a very small house with a very open floor plan between the kitchen & living room. This thing is sooooooooooooo quiet that I no longer have to turn up the volume on the t.v., not even a little bit. Shhhhhhh, you guys hear that? No? That's the sound of my dishwasher. (Dishes come out crazy clean & I can fit tons of them in there too. I suppose those are important features in a dishwasher too!)

Love this dishwasher so far!

Submitted by Potosi Girl - 7/7/2015

I bought this dishwasher a little over a week ago and I am so glad I did. Our old dishwasher was not a KitchenAid and it cooked soap on the dishes instead of cleaning them - terrible. I have washed dishes by hand for a couple of years now not wanting to spend the money on another disaster. It works fantastic so far. I hope I can say the same thing a year from now.

Super quiet but nuisance controls

Submitted by Plaz - 6/13/2015

I have very mixed feelings about this dishwasher. It does a fine job of cleaning dishes and it is nearly silent when running. But the controls along the top edge of the unit are much too sensitive so that almost every time I open and close the dishwasher, I end up accidentally turning something on or off.
