A basic no frills dishwasher that does the job.
I've read a few reviews about this dishwasher before I bought it. Even thought we could afford a more expensive dishwasher with all the bells and whistles, at the end of the day we asked the question, what do we need this dishwasher to do? Do we need it to walk the dog, take out the trash and sweep the floor? No, we just need it to wash the dishes we load up and that's about it. Do we need it to wash our most expensive dish and silverware and pots and pans. No, because we will always wash those by hands. We need to load the daily dishes, walk away, and forget about it until we come back to unload it. Now, if there was a dishwasher that unloaded itself and restock the dishes, well, that would be a no-brainer. I have washed my dishwasher safe pot and pans in it just fine. This is a dishwasher that washes dishes, period. It's basic. The racks are basic and holds breakfast and dinner dishes (including glassware) for four people nicely. Anything more than that then I would need a second load cycle. No problem, I've done it before. We have stainless steel appliances and while its not the 'prettiest' stainless steel appliance in the kitchen, it fits nicely under the cabinetry without drawing too much attention to itself. If anyone walked into my home and complained that my dishwasher wasn't as pretty as my fridge or stove, then I don't think that's a person I would want to have back in my kitchen. I've read in many reviews that the dishwasher is noisy. We have an open floor plan and the dishwasher is literally 27 feet away from the television. I've never had to turn the television up because the dishwasher is going and is to noisy. In fact, I'm watching television now and the dishwasher is going. I can barely hear it. To be honestly, I wouldn't hear it at all if I wasn't thinking about it. My dishwasher is under the cabinetry with a solid thick piece of granite counter-top and that may be a buffer for the sound. However, I do not experience a noise problem with this dishwasher. I'm writing this review after one month of ownership. I'll return in 6 months (if I remember) to give a follow-up.

Kenmore 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Item #02215114000P Model #15114
I purchased this item April 2014 and immediately notice the strange starting process. After filling with hot water (I make sure) it will cycle for 30-seconds, stop and immediately cycle for 30-seconds another three times, stopping and starting immediately and after the third cycle it is idle for 30-seconds. It then begins another three 30-second cycles stopping and starting immediately after the first two and when the third begins it continues the wash cycle unabated. I for one would not consider these supposedly unnecessary starts and stops being proper simply because of the ware and tare on the electrical parts. Every time a serge of electricity is sent to a motor or the power is terminated it simply cannot be a good thing. I think there is something seriously wrong with the information the memory module was programmed with and just how critical this is to the appliance's longevity overall is any-body's guess. I seriously doubt whether reporting this under warranty would be worthwhile so will wait another few months to see what happens with the motor.

does not dry dishes at all

we've had this dishwasher for about 6 weeks, and since day 1 the dishes do not dry. I have to towel dry every single piece when i unload it every morning. we have tried all settings but it does not work. Called for repair, they looked at it took the serial number and did nothing. We had an older model that worked fine just the door broke. i would not recommend this one.

I did the installation on this dishwasher and it was easy to put in place and to adjust the height. The feature we enjoy is that there are no dials for small children to play with. The only problem that I discovered was that the drying cycle could be a little better. After the drying cycle the dishes still have water on them.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Piece of Junk!!!

We are very disappointed with this machine! We carefully reviewed the different models from different stores and decided on this unit. Boy did I blow it! I have limited mobility and purchased this unit on-line. It doesn't clean the dishes! We have to wash or rinse every single plate, bowl, or utensil we put in it. When they all come out after going through the wash cycle, they are rough and scratchy. We have used three different cleaning and rinsing agents with the machine and have the same result with them all. What a disappointment! Come on Sears!

you get what you pay for

The panel on our last Kenmore dishwasher went bad. To have it replaced would have been $250, and the white panel wasn't available so it would have been a black panel on a white dishwasher. The repairman recommended buying the cheapest dishwasher because none of them are built to last anyway. This was the cheapest at.$279.99. We've only used it a couple times. The Normal Wash setting takes forever, well about 2 hours, which is about double the time of our last dishwasher. There is a one hour wash option that we haven't tried yet. I'm also disappointed that dishes have to be scraped/rinsed before being washed in the dishwasher. I think that defeats the efficiency of using a dishwasher. Rising/scraping wasn't necessary with our last dishwasher. On top of that, not everything came out perfectly clean, so that was disappointing. Maybe it wasn't rinsed enough. So, overall, I give it a fair rating because it will probably do the basic job, but it takes a long time and requires more effort from me.

All I Wanted and More

I just wanted a good appliance that would get my dishes and flatware clean and not cost too much money. I chose Kenmore because I have a Kenmore washer/dryer and fridge and love them all. This dishwasher is much quieter than my old one and I like the fact that is doesn't flip top rack items over so they can fill up with water. I've had the machine for over a month and so far so good. I am very happy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
