Summary: Anyone reading and considering buying any Viking product should know that the Viking Consumer Relations team denies knowledge of any defects/problems with this model. Maybe they should start reading review sites? Consumer reports pans it and this is the 9th post to this site all with negative reviews I have had 4 service calls in 1 year. The "start" switch has been replaced three times ---obviously a defective part.
Summary: This dishwasher replaced our 10 year old Viking Dishwasher, and was perhaps the loudest dishwasher we've ever experienced. A $1400 machine with no heat drying function? What? No internal light anymore Viking? What?
Summary: Has broken 4 times in 8 months. Currently is wont' work. Viking Warranty can't get the parts for a month which means I have to wash our dishes by hand for the next month. This is on top of the last 2 times it broke when we had to do our dishes by hand for a week.
Summary: Purchased in May '11 for weekend lake home. Had to replace Start button in July '11. Ist Start button probably only used about a dozen times. Nov. '11 have to replace Start button AGAIN. 2nd start button only used about 25 times. This is the PROFESSIONAL model? I saw the start button part when removed, it looks like a 10 cent part on this $1,300 dishwasher. Highly disappointed!!! 3 start buttons in 6 months at a weekend residence.
Summary: This is by far the noisiest dishwasher I have ever heard. Not only can you not hear yourself think but you have a 180min wash cylce to enjoy the noise. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
Summary: This is by far the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. Came with a new condo. Looks great but is extremely noisy. The silverware rack broke almost immediately and they want 119.00 for a new one. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE!!!!
Summary: This has to be the noisiest dishwasher in its price range. We remodeled our kitchen with Viking applicances and got this dishwasher to match the other applicances. What a mistake. Our old Bosch was so quiet that you would sometimes open it before the cycle was over. You can barely have a conversation near the Viking because it is so loud. I cannot believe Viking put their name on such a poorly designed product.
Summary: Brought the dishwasher thinking that its from Viking and will be a good product but unfortunately its the worst product I have purchased in my home. Its useless, it has just doubled my work . It does dry the dishes ( as in the advertisement )quick dry is just a myth, I have to daily put the dishes out to air dry them, such a worthless machine
Summary: I have had several diahwashers, and this is the worse one that I have ever owned. it is suppose to be quiet, but it is very noisy. The condensation drying is nothing more than drip dry, leaving puddles of water in the bottom of the appliance, and requiring the dishes to be finished by hand, The racks don,t hold glasses well and so they fall over. Don't buy this appliance. It is not worth the 1200 I paid for it.
