  1. I am so disappointed with the Kitchen Aid Service. I have a brand new refrigerator whose internal temperature went to 61 degrees and when I called warranty service they told me they couldn't get to my home for a week. What was I supposed to do with my food??? The supervisor, no less, suggested that I buy an alternative small refrigerator to keep my food. What chutzpah!!! This isn't like a dishwasher that didn't work (we could wash dishes by hand, even an oven (we could eat out). It was an appliance that contained food that would spoil.

  2. 10/3/2012 - Presidential debate between Obama and Romney. Kitchenaid execs tweeted an insulting remark about how Obama's grandmother (who raised him) died before he became president, implying it was a mistake.

    How dare they say such insulting and hurtful, mean and petty things about our fine President? I am disgusted by this company, and will boycott their products forever. I'm getting rid of my Kitchenaid fridge and will not buy their mixer as I had planned to! BOYCOTT KITCHENAID!!!

  3. I am outraged over your tweet about our president! I have many Kitchen Aid products and can not believe your would support such a disturbing and inappropriate comment. I hope you speak out against this tweet and terminate whoever made such a statement on behalf of Kitchen Aid...if not i will not purchase another product of your for myself or gift for others. Incredibly disappointing!

  4. KitchenAid does not care about the end user. Sold me a fridge that doesn't work and a dishwasher that flooded my home. They will attempt to "repair"...will not replace or refund my money. Refrigerator is less than 14 days old, dishwasher 13 months old. Buyer Beware!!!!

  5. WOW!!! We bought a Kitchenaid dishwasher last August and at first it was fantastic it even dried the bottom of my coffee mugs but then little by little not drying that or my dishes so we had to hand dry. First visit they blamed the jet dry dispenser so a week later it was installed. Dishes still wet. Next visit was told water not hot enough when it was about 140 degrees. Next visit was told I will may have to pay for this visit as it was more of an instructional visit, I laughed. Now he was saying we prerinsed with brush on sink that had dawn liquid in it, not the case. Then said maybe water (hard or soft) could be the problem so I asked what should it be and he didnt know. We have a water/softener set up. We bought a $800 dishwasher but a used one would have been just as good. I will never buy another kitchenaid either but arent all appliances made outside the USA now?

  6. I have a stainless steel dishwasher that isn't even 2 years old and it keeps breaking down. Will never buy your products again. when you pick a name brand the appliance should last a lot longer than it does.

  7. I purchased a kitchenaid professional HD stand mixer last may. I have used it 12 times and on the 12th use it stopped working and it sounds like a motor is disentigrating. I counted KitchenAid. When I first purchased it they had a promo for their pasta attachment. I sent them a copy of the sales receipt along with the upc off the box and the form they supplied. I registered the product for the one year manufacturers warranty. I even ordered the meat grinder attachment. I haven't had a chance to use either attachment. I babied my mixer and they asked me questions about it's use, making me feel like they were trying to lay the blame of the defect on me. I gave them the info they requested except another copy of the sales.receipt. I told them to check their own records because I sent it to them at the time of purchase. I was informed.that it went to another department and they don't have access to.those records. I asked.them if they all worked for the same company. I didn't.receve a response to.that. I said that I registered the mixer at the time of purchase and was informed that registering the product did not guarantee service. I asked then why do you bother asking your customers to.register their appliances if you have no intention of honoring your warantees. I.didn't receive a response to that. My husband placed the mkxer back in it's original box to get it out of my sight because ot upset me so much. I.told him what upset me was that I Chose the mixer based on the brand names reputation and they did not live up to that reputation. After reading all the complaints on KitchenAids twitter site I was appauled by their lack of customer support. I was.informed by kitchenaid that my situation was a rare one and my response to them was that is not so. They should read their own twitter account because I did. They have not contacted me since and I am left with a piece of equipment that doesn't work. I am thoroughly disappointed in KitchenAid and will never buy another kitchenaid product. Since they are part of whirlpool I am boycotting whirlpool as well. After my experience, a couple of friends who were going to purchase the same mixer decided not to.

  8. I thought I was finally ready for "high end" appliances and bought all KitchenAid for my newly remodeled kitchen. Within 2 years, the refrigerator had to be professionally drained. The repairman, said he gets a lot of calls for this particular problem and he thinks it's a bad design by KitchenAid. You think? Every few weeks I have to get on my knees, spread out a towel and literally crack the sheet of ice that forms (up to 3/4" thick) on the bottom of the freezer. Now, after 4 years, the seal around the freezer door no longer works. So, within 4 years of owning a KitchenAid, I'll be calling for its 2nd service. I'm so disappointed that such a large company has such a poor regard for their customers. You can bet I will NEVER recommend this product to anyone. It is no longer high end, and that's sad.

    1. Same issue here...Whirlpool continues to deny there is an issue. I'm trying to move up the chain of command but get stonewalled at every turn. This is almost fraudulent since it is obviously a widespread issue and a design flaw...frost free has been around for decades so its amazing this can be an issue. A hole in the bottom of a freezer that water drips through...how in the world can Kitchenaid mess that up?

  9. I have been a consumer who believed that Kitchen Aid appliances, large and countertop, were the best. I own a Kitchen Aid countertop mixer, hand mixer, dishwasher, etc. Well I also own the albatross of blenders also made by Kitchen Aid. Although my blender is about 7 years old the problem with it is a recurring one that began not long after the purchase. Today the "coupler" dissolved again for the nth time. We previously took the blender to a service center to be repaired, however, we refuse to invest any more money into this recurring defectively designed product. I called the company today and was told that my blender is out of warranty which I knew. I guess I wanted to inquire if they were aware of a design flaw. The person that I spoke with told me there was no "recall' so there wasn't a design flaw, HOWEVER, the new blenders no longer have the black plastic/rubber coupler. When I said that sounded like a redesign for some reason the person from Kitchen Aid said the top was redesigned not the bottom. The top now is one piece so there is no separate coupler. She was unaware of any problems with it. She suggested I call a repair place and get the part.
    I contacted a service center who said the part was $3.95 plus shipping and that instructions come with it. The service center said it shouldn't be too difficult to replace as they sell "thousands of them." THOUSANDS!!!! Wouldn't you think there was a design flaw that accounted for THOUSANDS of couplers being sold. I refuse to purchase another Kitchen Aid product as they clearly don't own up to inherent problems with the designs of their products. Service department was useless. Of course my blender was out of warranty and of course they may not have many complaints about the blender as people have no idea how many break. The first time we thought it was just a fluke. Clearly it wasn't and who can anticipate that it will break again after the first repair. We certainly didn't. Poor product and lack of response to consumers means beware of purchasing Kitchen Aid.

  10. I returned home after a short 3 day vacation to find my $3200.00 one year old refrigerator had stopped working and lost everything inside amounting to over $600.00. We spent hours emptying and cleaning up the mess. I called Kitchen aid the next day. I received different answers for the same questions from numerous people. Twice service techs came to my home with few tools and no parts. Both had to call the factory for assistance. I could plainly hear the factory rep saying on the phone to the tech in my home that the compressors have been found to be defective due to being overfilled with oil, and the evaporators develop leaks. So naturally the refrigerant is gone as well. I have been promised reimbursement for the food loss by one person and told by others they never do that. I have been told that since this is a catastrophic event "we will just exchange the unit since it's only 1 yr. old". The refrigeration system/parts/labor is warranted for 10 years. Now I'm told they don't do exchanges. I talked with a supervisor and not being satisfied with her I asked for the number of her supervisor. The number she gave rang at JC Penny's service evaluation program and asked for me to enter my code number. I could continue. Bottom line, Kitchen aid has the worst customer service I have ever heard of. They don't back their product. They are not making any effort to correct their issue with my refrigerator. I have had no refrigeration in my house for a week and am told it could be another 7-9 days, (not a promise though). Not only the loss of food, I have missed two days work to have "factory trained and authorized service techs" come to my house and do nothing. Kitchen Aid Sucks top to bottom. We will NEVER buy anything they sell. Buyer beware. Kitchen Aid is also Maytag and Whirlpool. Don't buy their crap

  11. We purchased our first Kitchenaid appliance ever two years ago, a stainless steel dishwasher for about $1000. And after two years of operation, we have decided we will NEVER buy a Kitchenaid appliance of any kind again! It is worse than the twelve tear old Kenmore we replaced at the time.

    I never completely dried the dishes, even with the extra HEAT button depressed. I know about puddling water in depressions, but on ordinary dishes, half of them were still wet. I never had that problem with my twelve year old Kenmore, even when replaced it.

    After one year the cheap, poorly designed utensil holder in the lower rack warped, allowing he cheap top covers with slots to fall through to the bottom without any support at all. We removed the slotted covers. Then about three months ago the top rack fell out of the sliders because the wheels kept falling out and the slide tracks were loose and jiggly, providing NO solid support after less than two years.

    I am posting this here and every other internet site I can find about experiences with appliances. I will state the facts and nothing more, the reader will decide on their own.
