  • Summary: Viking has let me down. After less than 6 months, this dishwasher stopped working. Repair man came out to fix it, only to say that parts were on backorder. Took 3 weeks to come in. Then, dishwasher leaked a huge mess. Now, only 2 1/2 years after buying, it has stopped working again. Viking refuses to acknowledge the lemon of a dishwasher they have made. They say to buy a new one as they now offer 3 year warranty. I say for the 1450.00 I paid, I've been had.

  • Summary: This is the worst dishwasher I ever had, my ancient one in first home was much better. Tech here twice to fix leak in drain pan that ruined my floor. At first wanted to glue it and leave. New pan was months to come in. Dishes don't dry. Does not clean well at even highest setting. Told needs jet dry which still only partly helps. Lower setting total waste as even tech admitted.

  • Summary: My wife and I have had this dishwasher for nearly 3 years now and could not be happier. We have had zero issues with this dishwasher. No matter how many dishes we pile and stuff into it and how little we pre-rinse them they always come out clean. Definitely recommend this dishwater.

  • Summary: This is my second viking dishwasher. the old model had to be replaced due to a leak that could not be repaired. This new model was supposed to be a big improvement. It is two years old, and the controller has had to be replaced twice as the washer just stops working. The plastic parts inside are falling apart and I've had to buy a silverware basket (viking promised to send me a free replacement but never did).

Not Happy

  • Summary: I bought a Viking dishwasher 2 years ago only because it matched my Viking refrigerator and range and my kitchen looked great. But it never really cleaned dishes very well, which I dealt with....but the real disappointment is after paying $1400 for a Viking dishwasher it no longer works and will cost me $700 to repair it, plus the parts are on back-order and there is no telling when they will come in! It is only 2 years old!

worst dishwasher

  • Summary: Have had nothing but problems with this dishwasher since installation in February. Technicians have been out 3 times and problems persist... Detergent dispenser opens inconsistently, unit leaks, top drawer always wet at end of cycle, dishes/utensils often dirty. Don't be fooled by Viking name.

Defective Viking Dishwasher

Unhappy Viking Customer, AJ Madison
31 May 2011
  • Summary: I purchased a VDB450SS 2 years ago. It had constant problems - stopping mid-wash. After 6 service calls it was replaced. Two months later, the new unit had the same problem. Now, 8 months later, it won't run - constantly stopping mid-cycle. Viking will only send out a service tech or replace it with the same model. They won't refund money or replace with a different model. Avoid this dishwasher - the electronics are faulty.
