KitchenAid Complaint - If you live in California - do not buy a Kitchen Aid Dishwasher unless you have soft water and a whole lot of patience!
If you live in California and you buy a dishwasher (KUDS30IVBL3, Type 577-0), these types of dishwashers do not work with hard water. This is something the sales people and/or company will not tell you until you purchase the dishwasher. We have had heating panel/temperature gage problems as well as hard water stains on everything. The company will not tell you this and will say there is a disclaimer in the product manual - which is not shown to you at the time of purchase. Go figure. Once your 1 year warranty is up the company abandons you and drops you like a hot potato! They are laughing all the way to the bank because you just put out $800.00 for a non-functional dishwasher. They will not send out a tech at their cost, they will not talk to you, and basically they don't care at all. 1 consumer down and 5 million or more to go before we actuallly have to address any problems.
