Product Description

Kenmore 18" Portable Dishwasher - Compact and Efficient

This Kenmore 18" portable dishwasher 1465 provides every convenience of a full-sized unit without sacrificing your space. Rust-resistant racks are made from nylon-coated, premium stainless steel, so this dishwasher will withstand the test of time. This unit is complete with an upper shelf cup rack, holds up to 8 full place settings and is ENERGY STAR® qualified to help keep your energy costs down. Quality performance and compact size make this Kenmore dishwasher the perfect addition to any studio apartment, small kitchen or second home.

  • By reducing water temperatures, shortening the cycle and eliminating end of cycle drying, the Eco Cycle cleans dishes and saves valuable resources with every wash.
  • The China Gentle cycle washes your finest crystal and most  delicate plates with a gentle touch, so you don't have to worry or wash them by hand when it's time to clean up.
  • With Delay Start, you can load the dishwasher, select the right cycle and delay the wash until you're ready.
  • Built to resist stains, shrug-off corrosion and increase heat retention for improved drying performance, the stainless steel tub delivers service that shines.
  • Deluxe nylon-coated dish racks don't scratch or scrape delicate stemware or china, and they'll stand up to years of use and support the heaviest pots and pans.
  • QuietGuard technology ensures the dishwasher runs without producing a noticeable amount of noise, so you can get a deep clean while carrying on a conversation.

Whisper Quiet and Very Effective
This dishwasher is easy to use and does an excellent job. I particularly liked that there are TWO SPRAY ARMS - one under the top basket and another under the lower basket. The stainless steel interior looks great and should stay looking that way. This dishwasher is so quiet you can actually hold a conversation at a whisper right next to it while it is operating through any cycle! The only downside I find with the unit - and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 - is the setup of the baskets. Sometimes only a few dishes can be fit in when there are odd shaped pieces - particularly bowls. Removing the silverware basket can be helpful, but there are large, unsupported open spaces where the basket would be and only certaibn items will fit in that space without partially going through and blocking the lower wash arm. A fan in the unit to force some air circulation during Air Dry would really take this unit above and beyond! It would also be nice to have some indicator lights letting you know what cycle the dishwasher was on.

poor quality nothing but trouble

Had 1 year of service call after service call, use it about every 4 or 5 days, had problems with rack, the rail the rack rides on, gasket needed to be trimmed was too big for bottom rack to clear opening to close, top rack broke nneded to be replaced, hoses and cord had to be replaced now it leaks, sears being difficult they don't want to live up to sales pitches that within 1 year of recurring problems they will replace appliances, too many stipulations on their part make it seem they will never replace any item I may sue them, I will NEVER CONSIDER SEARS FOR ANYTHING

DEFECTIVE & HARD TO RETURN

Had a hard time returning this defective product. Never even wanted to try it .Has a PLASTIC top that was broken - crunched & cracked all the way down the side - when It was delivered. I think it would not last anyway. Looked very cheap and flimsy.The sides (outside) also look terrible - ugly indentations and screws showing. Inside looked pretty, but the racks were thin, unstable and didn't pull out easy. Took me 4 different calls (I can not help you ,call this other number), 45 mins and much grief to have them pick it back up. [No I don't want 10% off. Yes I will need to schedule another time I need to be home for a pick-up. No I didn't install a portable dishwasher. No I don't want this one replaced. Yes I need to know that I will get ALL of my money back] It was taken care of in the end but I'm NOT going through this again.

Excellent!!

Replaced a 15-yr old 18" Frigidaire portable that finally gave up the ghost. This one is a little smaller on the interior but quieter and cleans better. Stainless steel interior is nicer - as are the electronic controls. Sears delivery people were fantastic - very helpful!! Very happy with our purchase!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent

There are not many choices in portable dishwashers these days. So far I am very happy with this one. It seems to be very well built and is surprisingly quiet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Quite Space Saver

I bought this to replace my 10 yr old Kenmore 24" portable dishwasher which was still working great, but just needed to save some space in my small kitchen. I got a great deal on the new one using my reward points and it was delivered on time with no damage! I'm very impressed with how quite it does a great job of getting the dishes clean. The one thing I'm not thrilled with is the outer top of the dishwasher. It has a black satin like finish with a mild texture and it's tricky to clean. Paper towels leave a residue of little paper balls, so I have to wipe it with a wet sponge and dry it with a dish towel to keep it looking new. I may wind up recovering the top with a sheet of black vinyl to make it easier to just wipe it clean. The unit is well built and solid but the inside racks are a bit flimsy and if not positioned correctly the door is hard to close. Overall I'm pleased with this dishwasher and I hope I get another 10 years out of this Kenmore.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Durable

Seems like a durable unit that will hold up in a rental unit. Price was fair and size is good for an apartment sized portable dishwasher.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love my new 18" Kenmore portable DW

Delivery was as promised, deliverymen wonderful. Easy to unpack. Wheels were attached. Only thing needing done was attach the part to the faucet. We used the 2 provided washers in the DW's easy-on hose to sink. EASILY hooks up, easy to load, held my 6 piece dinner set (with dessert plates). Dishes clean, pans clean, glasses glow. And, although it said quiet, I was still expecting noise. This is the quietest DW I have ever used (built-ins and portables). I spent a lot of time reading reviews, comparing different brands and sizes. I can move it in my extremely small kitchen without a hassle. I like the two arms spraying water; like the varied types of washers - needed china and crystal and pots & pans. I like that it has an air dry to save on electricity. I cannot speak highly enough about this Kenmore portable.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cleans well and quietly

Second Kenmore 18" portable washer purchased. Previous one lasted 12+ years, so when it stopped working, got another one. New one has better cleaning power with the second spray arm and is so much quieter when running. A few minor minuses - hoses are frustrating to pull out and return (old model had flexible black hoses that slid in and out with no problem), bottom rack constantly wants to slide back into the cavity (frustrating to load when both hands are full with dirty dishes and you need another hand to pull the rack back out), and not knowing where it is in the cleaning cycle (old model had a dial so you knew what cycle it was in). Different configuration of the racks meant that I had to learn how to reload (you know how everything kind of has it's own place to go in the dishwasher?). Overall, happy with the dishwasher. Perfect for 2 people.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Even better than expected

This dishwasher is incredibly easy to hook up and operate. It takes up very little space but still holds a lot. It cleans thoroughly without using a lot of water. It's nice looking with a handy, table-like top.It's perfect for anyone who can't install a dishwasher but could really use one, like us!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
