Product Description

Kenmore 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Clean Better at Sears

This Kenmore 24" built-In dishwasher 1325 is equipped with a pressurized spray nozzle that aggressively yet gently tackles grease and stains. The energy-efficient UltraWash HE Wash System uses water effectively, and the SmartWash HE cycle gives you more control without wasting a drop. During the wash cycle, the UltraWash HE Filter traps food particles to guarantee optimal performance. The rinse aid dispenser ensures reduced streaks and spots. This Kenmore dishwasher features an attractive stainless steel tub for improved drying that makes your glasses and dishes sparkling clean.

  • The ENERGY STAR® qualified UltraWash HE System uses up to 40% less electricity and 68% less water than some dishwashers, for a powerful clean that uses fewer resources.
  • The UltraWash® HE Filter traps food particles and keeps them from re-entering the dishwasher, so water is cleaner and dishes shine bright.
  • The SmartWash™ HE Cycle automatically adjusts water and energy use to the load size and degree of cleaning needed, helping save valuable resources.
  • With Delay Start, you can load the dishwasher, select the right cycle and delay the wash until you're ready.
  • 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.

excellent value for the money
This dishwasher was easy to install for an average DYI person. We love how clean the lines are, and how nice the inside stainless steel tub looks. The machine is amazingly quiet - we frequently are not aware it's even running (thank goodness for the blue light). In addition, it cleans the dishes really well. The manual filter is easy to clean. Would highly recommend this produce to anyone.

Washes well and quiet, but a couple issues.
Have had this dishwasher for about a year and have been happy with the quietness and the ability to wash. However, there is a problem with the upper rack. The rack is a rather loose fit and the left side rail pops out of the wheel assembly if you're not super careful when pulling or pushing the rack. It has actually fallen three times and broken dishes. Well, a few weeks ago it stopped draining, so I had the repair guy come out. He said the pump is fine and he cleaned out the drain in the wall, He said the wall drain is clogging. Well, it now drains sometimes, but not all the time. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now and I'm going to reroute the drain hose to the disposal to see if that fixes the problem. While he was here though, he also replaced the left side rail assembly for the top rack. Well, now it's worse. It tries to pop out almost every time I pull the rack out. I'm a bit disappointed in the quality of the new appliances in general. Hope it gets better!

Plastic parts break easily

Very Quiet, quick to sell and install. However, the top rack keeps falling out because there is only a small plastic tab holding it in place and it is to thin and flexible to do the job. What ever happen to sears quality? Only had for a week and ready to return this hunk of junk.

Weak upper rack

Bought this in May of 2012. While it does a nice job getting the dishes clean and it is much quieter than our old one, the upper rack is not as sturdy as the old one. It's been wobbly from the start and comes off the track on the left side frequently. After reading several reviews, it appears that this has been an issue with several users.

Great Unit

Have had it for about 9 months now. We are very satisfied. It is quiet, does a great job cleaning everything, and is very user friendly. You can adjust the top rack as needed. It has several fancy run options, we just use the basic clean and dry cycle. It does run for a while, but so quiet it doesn't matter

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good and bad

The dishwasher looks good but I have not used it yet. My husband had installed it and I started to place dishes inside when I noted a dent damaged spot all the way in the back. We had to remove and return the dishwasher. Sears was great about it,but still a hustle. Ordered the same one, without dent!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
