Product Overview

Keep up with the tools you use from prep to table with this dishwasher's three racks of versatile loading possibilities and complete wash coverage. The FreeFlex Third Rack fits glasses, mugs, bowls, silverware and cooking tools, freeing up room below for pots, plates and mixing bowls. The Advanced Clean Water Wash System circulates clean water to dishes in all three racks.

Features

FreeFlex Third Rack

The largest third rack available has a deep, angled design that fits 6" glasses, mugs and bowls. It features rotating wash jets to clean items in the rack, a drying bar with tabs that help wick moisture off glasses and a removable utensil tray for cooking

44 dBA

Provides quiet cleaning without compromising performance, so there's no need to wait to run a wash cycle while entertaining and enjoying meals, even in open concept kitchens

PrintShield Finish

Resists smudges and fingerprints. The specialized coating for stainless steel is easy to clean with just water and a soft cloth, so you can spend more time cooking and less time cleaning up the kitchen.

Advanced Clean Water Wash System

Uses microfiltration to continuously remove food particles during the wash and rinse cycles and circulates clean water to dishes in all three racks. This allows dirty cookware and delicate glassware to be washed together in the same load.

ProWash Cycle

Uses sensors to measure soil levels throughout the cycle and adapts wash time and water temperature as needed for tough messes or lighter loads, because no two meals or the dishes that result are exactly the same.

Heat Dry Option

Heats both the final rinse water and the air inside the dishwasher to help dishes come out dry and ready for your next creation.

Durable Stainless Steel Interior

Offers the beauty and benefits of stainless steel inside the dishwasher. It resists streaks, stains and odors, while retaining heat to help improve drying.

SatinGlide® Rails in Third and Middle Racks

Move smoothly for easy loading and unloading.

Extended Heat Dry Option

Extends the Heat Dry Cycle time by 14 minutes for items that need extra drying time.

Adjustable Rows in Middle and Lower Racks

Fold down to make room for dishes in a variety of shapes and sizes like roasting pans, serving bowls, colanders and dutch ovens.

Two Stemware Holders in Middle Rack

Secure wine glasses along the side of the rack to prevent them from moving around during the wash cycle.

Express Wash Cycle

Cleans in less time, so you always have the dishes you need while prepping, cooking and entertaining.

Sani-Rinse Option

Eliminates 99.999% of food soil bacteria by adding a high-heat final rinse to sanitize dishes.

Adjustable Middle Rack

Adds flexibility to fit tall items like a stand mixer bowl. Lower the rack to place large dishes inside or raise it to make room for platters, pitchers, blender jars and more in the rack below.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Third Rack makes such a difference! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this dishwasher about a month ago. This was our third kitchenaid dishwasher in 35 years, so obviously I have brand loyalty and have been happy with performance and quality. I really was looking for a dishwasher that loaded the way our old one did, but the third rack seemed like a good idea. And it was! I can't believe how much more the dishwasher holds or the flexibility of the racks. The dishwasher is getting quite a workout with holiday baking. Great design! The very minor downside is the length of a complete cycle, which is quite long. I am using heat dry so that does add to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE!!! My KitchenAid Model# KDFM404KPS was installed last week. I spent many hours reviewing top of the line dishwasher models. I compared many of the features they all had to offer. I decided on the KitchenAid model because I was very impressed with the FreeFlex Third Rack. It offered more quality space that I was interested in. All racks slide in & out easily. There is so-o-o-o much room for every possible dish, bowl, mug, pot, etc. that you would want to put into a dishwasher. It is very quiet. The PrintShield Finish is lovely and the outside of this dishwasher is very neat & elegant in appearance. It's my understanding that this is a fairly new model, so there were few reviews to go by. I'm very happy I chose this model. Thank you KitchenAid!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as quiet as expected. Bought this in February 2021. At beginning of cycle, dishwasher was extremely quiet -- couldn't tell it was running. But about 30-45 minutes after start, it would get noisy, but off and on (maybe a change in the wash cycle)? Recorded sound and appliance store agreed it sounded like a bad motor, so ordered a new one (still under warranty). New motor arrived in September. Dishwasher now starts noisier than before -- can tell it is running. Preferred the first version since at least, it was quiet for most of the time except for the on-off noise later in the cycle. I paid alot for a quiet dishwasher but am not getting what I paid for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cleaning gets worse with every new design (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Purchased this dishwasher 6 months ago to replace the KitchenAid dishwasher that stopped working because the control board and wiring overheated and burned. I owned the previous unit for only 5 years. This new dishwasher will not clean the bowls I load in the bottom rack. I have tried many different configurations ensuring the bowls are not nested and they still, frequently but not always, do not come clean. Cycles are extremely long. I would rather have a loud dishwasher that uses more water and cleans thoroughly than a quiet dishwasher that uses little water and cleans poorly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet and efficient I bought my dishwasher exactly 1 year ago and I have really enjoyed it. It does a great job of getting my dishes and utensils clean. The only thing I don't like about it is that it takes a lot longer to run a cycle than my last dishwasher. On the plus side, it uses very little water and is super quiet. I did just have to have my dishwasher serviced because the outflow got clogged up. The repairman said that in spite of what the manufacturers will say, and in spite of the fact that the dishwasher will get dried on food off, the dishwasher is not made to dispose of food, so all food should be scraped off of dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. He also reminded me to be sure to use Rinse Aid at all times to get the dishes to dry properly and without spots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spacious and Quiet [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had this dishwasher for over a month now. Its interior is quite a bit bigger than the Bosch dishwasher that it replaced. I also like the third rack where you can place your coffee mugs and shorter drinking glasses. It cleans very well and is quiet. Two suggestions for future improvement. First, make a really short wash cycle (like 30 minutes) for those times when there is a lot of cooking and dishwashing taking place. Second, make the bottom of utensil basket with smaller holes so utensils, like dessert forks, don't fall through and impede operation of the rack. Overall, a very good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Third rack very useful [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Had an older Kitchen Aid dishwasher that worked just fine but wanted a third rack like we had in another home. This rack is so flexible and adds lots of capacity, especially for long cooking utensils. The design still allows for tall glasses in middle rack on right side. The lower rack keeps capacity for knives and silverware, but to upright prongs and lower structure of rack do not hold plates upright very well. KA should redesign the lower rack fir heavy pottery plates or fine china so the plates do not “domino” over during wash. The quietness is as good or better than Bosch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Chose Kitchen Aid [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We moved into our home 6.5 years ago; the existing dishwasher was a Kitchen Aid, so I really don't know how long it had been here. It worked greatfor the 6.5 years, so when its life ended, I was all in for another Kitchen Aid. My new machine has 3 racks, a new feature to me and I love it. I have lots of snapware that does great on that level. I like that the silver ware holder has the ability to remove the separation top. I use one with it and one without; perfect for my ware. I was without a dishwasher for over 2 months due inability to get the one I wanted, but my second choice was available and looks great with my other kitchen appliances. I have other Kitchen Aid appliances and have never regretted those puchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) After being very happy with our 20 year old Kitchenaid dishwasher, one day it couldn't be fixed, we decided to choose a new Kitchenaid dishwasher as a replacement. A lot has changed with dishwashers over the years. The 3rd rack is perfect for tongs, serving spoons, can openers, plastic storage lids etc. Our old Kitchenaid dishwasher was pretty quiet however, the new dishwasher, during any part of a cycle, we had to look to see if the dishwasher was even on! It was so quiet. Dishes, glasses and pots come out so clean on the "Pro" cycle! Kitchenaid, we continue to be impressed! Keep up the great work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly no Ned to prewash [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had the dishwasher for almost a month. The installation went very smoothly. I tried putting it in dirty dishes with dried on cheese, oatmeal etc - all I did was wipe off food. Everything came out clean and sparkling and dry. A first for me. The other impressive thing is how much it holds. Although the outside dimensions are the same as my old machine, kitchen aid holds much more - the design is ingenious. And finally the third rack is a big help, I especially like that it has 2 levels so I have plenty of room for large utensils as well as small bowls cups and glasses

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dishwasher ever! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this dishwasher to replace a cheaper brand that I bought a week earlier. This dishwasher is like a Rolls-Royce compared to a Kia comparing it to the other dishwasher. The thing is so quiet I don't hear it run. The third rack is great. We use a lot of tall tumbler glasses and they all fit in the third upper rack. It is a great. The lower two racks are so roomy I can almost fit two loads compared to what I could put in my previous dishwasher. I love the fact that it is made in Lima Ohio which is just North of my home in Dayton. Happy to keep American workers working.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leak alert code (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) This is our second KitchenAid dishwasher, the first left behind when we moved homes. The second one we purchased featured the third rack. After installing, we discovered the best feature on this model. The appliance has a sensor code indicating a water leak underneath the machine, so will not operate until the water leak issue is resolved. Saves a lot of frustration and mess. We like the third rack for mugs and glasses, the fact that the appliance is virtually soundless when operating, and we particularly like the heat dry option. The stainless steel finish is easy to clean,and looks great in the kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job very well [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Not sure if high price of this machine is justified. The inside is very dark and control panel is not illuminated so is hard to see unless all kitchen lights are on. Adjustable tines are not practical, only one bar at back of bottom rack tray and one at front of middle rack adjust neither of which help much with placement of dishes. Video shows three wine glass holders but there are only two on my machine. The machine washes very efficiently and dries everything very well, so despite the above mentioned minor design faults, I am pleased with the dishwasher's performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher with an Annoying Leak [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my third KitchenAid dishwasher and I am generally pleased with it. The 3rd rack is a wonderful addition and the inside of the dishwasher is spacious. Two drawbacks keep me from giving this appliance a 5 star review. 1. The cycle time is very long (2+ hours - although I understand that this is standard for modern energy efficient dishwashers, it does make me miss my previous KitchenAid dishwasher when I am in a hurry). 2. The vent for the dryer leaks on my floor (luckily it is tile) whenever I open the dishwasher after it has completed a cycle. If this was fixed I would change my review to 5 stars!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok but not great (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I like some of this dishwasher’s features, others not so much. It’s super quiet, and the the different cycles are easy to use and understand. It also cleans very well. What I don’t like is the configuration of the racks. While I appreciate having the third (top) rack, the way the racks are designed doesn’t allow for efficient loading. There are no places that fit my deep soup bowls, and no place to stack small dishes (such as fruit nappies) and lids upright. We also now have to wash stemmed glasses by hand as the measly two wineglass holders do not fit our glasses. All in all I am disappointed in the design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I love it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This dishwasher was a replacement kitchen aid authorized for our prior kitchen aid dishwasher. So far so good. I love the top rack and how versatile it is. If you’re someone who uses an excessive amount of dishes while cooking or baking like I do, then this dishwasher will work for you. I like that I can fit bigger mixing bowls on the middle shelf and my coffee and drinking glasses on the very top while leaving space for bigger items on the bottom. It really works well and cleans nicely. One thing I chose in this dishwasher versus our previous one is the controls on the front. I feel like the top hidden controls were always being affected by water drips from the sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’d give this dishwasher 100 stars if I could! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) This really is an amazing dishwasher! It’s so quiet, I’m always looking to see if it’s actually running, I love it! AND this dishwasher cleans amazingly well!! We spent the first couple weeks excited to unload the dishwasher to see how clean the dishes were! Even my 10 yr old son was amazed! (Yes, our old ale more dishwasher was a hunk of junk that barely did what it was supposed to do!) We also really like the internal setup of the racks; we love the third rack more than we anticipated that we would. I would HIGHLY recommend buying this model. We are beyond happy with the quality of this dishwasher. Well done Kitchenaid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had our new Kitchenaid dishwasher for about a month now. It is so quiet that I have had to check and see if it is running, it was but I could barely hear it. It holds a ton of dishes, so much room. Even better is that it cleans dishes far better than we thought possible. After my wife made a meatloaf I thought we would run a test and put the baking dish in with just a rinse. The dish came out clean, amazing. We love this dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adjustable shelves [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought our dishwasher and just received it a few day ago! We love the feature of adjustable shelves and the additional top rack for odd shaped utensils. We also have the stainless cover that does not stain. Our previous dishwasher stained almost immediately after using. The noise level is amazing as you hardly know it's on. How great that we were able to find this lovely appliance at time when dishwashers are not readily available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans like a dream [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was not happy when my 18 year old KitchenAid dishwasher stopped working, but because it lasted 18 years with no maintenance I decided another KitchenAid. I didn't expect to use the third rack, but it's awesome! I can put my coffee cups and small bowls here that typically took up room on the top rack in my old (two rack) product. I'm amazed at the amount of dishes this will hold and it is so quiet, you don't even know it's running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After years of having an average dishwasher that was noisy, this KitchenAid dishwasher has been magnificent. It washes everything thoroughly, is so quiet you can barely hear it, and gets all dishes perfectly dry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, but has that stainless steel tub smell [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Cleans well, easy to use, lots of room. But has foul tar like smell. Maybe it's that "new appliance" manufacturing smell. Have had a month, not as bad, but still there. Stainless steel tubs do this. Plastic interiors are much better. Please stop with the steel gimmick of cleanliness. The washing is quiet, but there is an electric motor buzzing sound thus making it not as quiet as my old budget price whirlpool silent partner. Which had a plastic tub and zero smell. I'm still happy with purchase due to lots of room inside and good rack layout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional Third Shelf [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When my old dishwasher broke, I wanted the new one to be very quiet and to have a third shelf. I went to numerous stores to actually see different brands of dishwashers with a third shelf. I bought this one as it was the only one whose third shelf was designed to hold something other than silverware. It actually holds and cleans 12 oz. glasses and mugs, leaving extra space on the middle shelf for more plastic/top shelf wash only items. All of my largest pots easily fit into the dishwasher. When I have used the dishwasher, it can't really be heard, even when you stand next to it. The first couple of times I used it, my husband actually walked into the kitchen to verify that it was running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love my Kitchenaid dishwasher - I actually look forward to seeing how clean the dishes come out. I never would put pots and pans in the dishwasher, but no problem now. The third rack is so roomy and holds a ton making the dishwasher capacity so much more. I highly recommend this dishwasher and give it five stars!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A month ago, i bought this KitchenAid to replace a 20 year old Kenmore which always did a great job but was having a few issues. I researched dishwashers and decided on the 404 model. It does a very good job of washing the dishes and is very quiet as advertised. However, it does a mediocre job of drying. I first tried without drying, and it was a disaster. Then I used both Heat Dry and Extended Heat Dry. In both cases there was water on the back and front sides of the washer. Water pooled on the tops of cups and bowls. I am going to leave the door open when done to let items and dishwasher sides completely dry. It's annoying when I consider the price I paid. Should have bought the Bosch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The dishwasher was installed in September, so we have been using it about 6 weeks. The installation was dicey but not entirely due to the dishwasher. Our power hookup was fine for the previous KitchenAid dishwasher but the back of this one was configured differently and the receptacle had to be moved to accommodate the new device. It performs great. It is quite quiet (say that real fast three times! :-) ). The third rack is nice, especially for glasses. All-in-all it is a very efficient, quiet device and we are very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher - design flaw on middle rack [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great dishwasher and it is very quiet. The wash / dry cycle is quite long. There is a design flaw in the middle rack that prevents you from using it for more than a few bowls. Bowls are stable when placed on the right set of upright holders. The bowls rest solidly on an even set of rails. On the left set of uprights, the bottom rails are not even with the left rail dipped down. Those on the left are lower than those on the right so the bowls do not sit solidly and tend to fall over hitting each other. The attached photo shows how the bottom of the bowl on the left is not supported, causing it to easily fall forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the quiet running and 3rd rack! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wow, runs really quiet! After 2 weeks, I've got the hang of maximising loading capacity . Very useful 3rd rack, great design. Glasses and mugs that used to take up half the second rack now goes up to the 3rd rack. Ability to the raise the second rack is fantastic for the occasional use of a 16" serving plate. Love the cutlery tray that separate the spoons/forks/knives, but would prefer it's location in the front. Heat dry leaves a drop of two of moisture but that doesn't bother me (Extended heat dry is an option). Overall performance is a 10/10!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Head Above the Rest! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased this dishwasher after reviewing many different dishwashers. We used Consumer Reports and found that this dishwasher was in the Top 5 of dishwashers that they reviewed. So far, we are very satisfied with our purchase. They dishes come out clean and mostly dry. The 3rd rack is Awesome! The only negative is the racks themselves. They don't really have a rack that can hold up our plastic bowls. We can certainly live with that. Overall, we are very happy with our purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 3rd rack [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] That THIRD RACK! I do a lot of cooking & baking, and I used to wash all my kitchen gadgets by hand because they'd get lost, either in the washing cycle or because my helpful hubby :) would put them away in the wrong spot. Now, they go in the top rack & if my husband unloads the dishwasher, he knows to leave the top rack for me to deal with. But I like this dishwasher even without the 3rd rack. The lower racks are well-designed and I can fit more items in than my old dishwasher. The only thing I don't like is the flatware holder. Instead of one long carrier, I wish there were two smaller. But the benefits far outweigh that minor complaint!
