Introducing The Kitchenaid KDTE204KPS Dishwasher

There are countless reasons to love this dishwasher model and you can explore all of them when the appliance is added to your home. In the meantime, here five of the best features that customers rave about and take advantage of on a daily basis for a better dishwashing experience.

Check Out the Space for 13 Place Settings

This is designed to be a family dishwasher with plenty of room to clean up after every meal. It can hold up to 13 place settings, including plates, glassware, and utensils. Extra storage space can make a big difference when it comes to doing dishes. The more you can fit, the fewer cycles you need to run. This makes the cleanup process faster while also using less water and electricity to clean your cookware.

Try the Sani-Rinse Cycle Option

If you are worried about bacteria on your dishes from raw meat or chicken, utilize the sani-rinse cycle to clean your cookware. This option eliminates 99.999% of food soil bacteria by washing your dishes at an extremely high heat. You can feel safe when you put your dishes away knowing that all bacteria has been removed from them.

Turn On the Heat Dry Option

If your current dishwasher leaves your cookware dripping wet, try the heat dry option that comes with this model. The final rinse is completed with hot water and the air inside the dishwasher is also heated. This helps water evaporate during the drying process so more of it gets removed.

Enjoy Peace and Quiet

This unit runs at 39 dBA which means it is one of the quietest available dishwashers produced by KitchenAid. You can wash your dishes during mealtime or while you watch TV after dinner and won’t have to worry about the washing and draining distracting your family.

Notice The PrintShield™ Finish

You have better things to do than clean your appliances. Fortunately, the PrintShield™ finish on the front of this dishwasher will keep it looking clean and new. You can easily wipe away smudges and fingerprints with only a damp cloth.

The first way to take home model KDTE204KPS is by purchasing it as a stand-alone appliance. As a 24” dishwasher, this appliance is made to fit in almost any standard-size kitchen. If you already have a dishwasher in your home and need to replace it, this appliance will slide in exactly where your old model was.

Despite the standard size, you might feel like you are getting an upgrade when you buy this appliance. There is plenty of storage space for all of your dishes and utensils. There is even a built-in third rack for extra storage and organization.

There are several positive KDTE204KPS reviews to check out when researching this model. In fact, more than 93% of buyers say they would recommend it to others. One dishwasher review says, “Very pleased with this new dishwasher. It replaced a more expensive one that only lasted a little over 2 years. It has a larger capacity and gets the dishes much cleaner. Runs very quietly and is perfect for an open floor plan.”

The refrigerator has an external water and ice dispenser for extra convenience.

All of these appliances come in a matching stainless steel design. You can enjoy a perfectly unified kitchen with appliances that are all from the same age and brand. This is a great selling point if there is a chance you will list your house and move in the near future.

This is another package you can consider if you want to completely remodel your kitchen. Instead of an electric range, you can enjoy a gas model that comes with five total burners. The largest burner heats up to 17,000 BTU for rapid boiling or cooking over high heat.

The refrigerator is also different and comes with a French-door model instead of a side-by-side design. You can still enjoy quality filtered water and ice; however, the dispensers are built inside the unit. All you have to do is open one of the doors and easily fill up your glass.

The other two appliances include the KDTE204KPS dishwasher and an over-the-range microwave.


What is the average life of a KitchenAid dishwasher?

Most dishwashers last around 10 years. While KitchenAid is a high-quality brand, you can expect your dishwasher to wear out within this time period. Naturally, the longevity of your dishwasher will depend on how frequently it is used and how well it is cared for. Some dishwashers can last up to 15 years.

Are KitchenAid dishwashers a good choice?

KitchenAid is a trusted appliance brand, which means you can feel confident buying a KitchenAid dishwasher for your home. This is a great option if you already have other KitchenAid appliances or want to explore the brand for the first time. You can expect on average to pay between $600 and $1200 for these appliances.

How do I clean my dishwasher?

The main thing to remember when cleaning your dishwasher is to empty your filter. While your dishwasher blades do an excellent job of breaking down food, some particles might get caught in the filter. This can build up over time and eventually cause drainage problems. You can also clean the dishwasher by running it empty with a bowl of vinegar placed on the bottom.
