KitchenAid dishwasher choked to death on olive pit!

GH1618 | May 9, 2012 07:46 PM

I just got a big repair estimate (about $500) for my KitchenAid dishwasher.  It seems a couple of olive pits got into the works, which, being largely plastic, wete destroyed.  The field-replaceable-unit is the whole power unit, not just the impeller.  This is not really a defect — I don't expect that it should digest olive pits, and didn't put them in thete intentionally — but I am a little surprised that an olive pit could get into a place where it could do so much damage.

I like it otherwise, so am repairing it rather than replacing it.  I'll be more careful from now on.
