KA KDTE204DSS disappointing performance
The dishwasher in my new house is the Kitchen Aid KDTE204DSS. It is very quiet - a plus. It has a 3rd rack - a plus. It doesn't clean dishes very well - a minus that cancels out all other pluses. When I say it doesn't clean well, it doesn't wash hot chocolate residue out of a mug!
In my old house I had absolutely the cheapest dishwasher I could find. The one before it croaked on Labor Day weekend; I knew I was going to remodel the kitchen soon; I bought the cheapest thing HD had. It cleaned so well, that when I remodeled, I had it re-installed. Granted, it sounded like a freight train, but it worked! The one I have now is super quiet, but the dishes come out almost as dirty as when they went in.
I have a tankless hot water heater. It takes a while for water to get hot. Is that a problem?
And it absolutely swills Jet-Dri. I put it in the dispenser and a week later, it is gone.
Has anyone else had any experience with this dishwasher?
