We have a KDI-18 dishwasher, are there stainless steel panels available for this and if so where can I find them.

If you do not find a set on Ebay or here, you can easily have them fabricated at a stainless steel fabricator by giving the fabricator the measurements and they will easily be able to create a set for you to place inside the brackets.

I have the bottom panel for a KA dishwasher, in stainless. Not sure which model it is for. Let me check tomorrow.

I'm just using it as a shelf right now.

I believe part b-241677 is what you're looking for. Can anyone validate? These are the ones I bought for my kds20. These also fit my 21. They should fit the 18.

I bought mine on eBay and just checked there are none right now.

I do not have the panel that you need. What I have is for an older model. Measures 26" x 10". Screw holes on the sides. Actually I'm not sure what it fits.

I could post pictures if anyone is interested.

I picked up these (link below). They cut the panels to your dimensions. They are made of 22 gauge SS so they're a bit thicker than OEM panels. They came well packaged and in three days.

Our dishwasher does not have the framepieces that go around the edges to hold that in place.

The 19 and later series had framed panels, not the 18 and older. There were some decorator frames to fit panels in some of the older models, not sure if the 18 series still had these available.

Trim kits

I have a few sets of the trim kits with panels in them already which will accommodate the stainless steel panels you want to get.
The postage will be more than what I would be asking for them​ so let me know if I can be of assistance to you in this project. Stainless panels make any KitchenAid look fantastic and contemporary.
