Kenmore 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Powerful Cleaning

Combining powerful cleaning with a gentle touch, the Kenmore 24" built-in dishwasher 1329 tackles the toughest grease and baked-on foods while being a safe and gentle way to wash your fine china and crystal glassware. The SmartWash HE Cycle helps save water and energy as it automatically adjusts output for each load, as the Kenmore UltraWash HE filter keeps food particles from interfering with continuous cycles. The stainless-steel tub on this built-in dishwasher traps in heat for more efficient drying and is resistant to mold and stains.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Built to resist stains, shrug-off corrosion and increase heat retention for improved drying performance, the stainless steel tub delivers service that shines.
  • Cut down on hand-cleaning pots and pans by quickly raising, lowering or removing this adjustable upper rack, so there's always plenty of room for those larger items.

I did my Homework.....
And after going to ********, Sears and ******* and checking out just about every model/brand out there I decided on this dishwasher (Kenmore Ultrawash Stainless Steel / Stainless steel Tub model 13293). I liked a few of the Elites and counterparts to this one made by Whirlpool but I didn't want to spend that much money on a dishwasher yet I wanted a quality piece too. I picked up this model (13293) for $599.99 at Sears, after discounts, installation and the 5 year maintenance agreement I only spent $839.99 all together. I had a 2000 Whirlpool Gold that worked fairly well so I looked extensively at Whirlpool, Kenmore and checked out Bosch too a lot. Bosch racks slide out of the entire dishwasher easily so I scratched them. Whirlpool actually makes all of Kenmore?s dishwashers so the differences in quality and craftsmanship are negligible between the two. I decided on this Kenmore Ultrawash and I am not disappointed at all. Back in the 2000's, an acceptable dishwasher decibel level was 65 so this thing being 51 makes it sound non-existent in my kitchen which has hardwood floors. The buttons are easy to use and it washes great. I overfill my dishwasher all the time, especially the silverware tray, and everything has always come out clean. I had a problem with my old one not cleaning the silverware properly because the rack was on the door which a reason why I went with this Kenmore. The lower basket size still fits just about the same amount of bowls and dishes as my old Whirlpool even though the silverware basket is now in the bottom basket. The upper basket holds all of my cups, especially the really tall plastic ones that my old dishwasher was unable to accommodate. There is a lot of room so I put my large utensils in the upper rack too which get cleaned just as well. The silverware tray is large enough that I can fit all of my pairing knives, cutting knives, etc? as well as measuring cups in it. I also am able to wash my child?s small cups and plastic utensils in the basket as well which is huge for me because my normal plethora of silverware still fits too. The dishwasher itself looks flawless both inside and out. My 2 year old daughter can't pull the door open and not having the controls in the front where she can see them is a very big plus. The door can open and it holds at any angle too. The drain tray at the bottom of the tub that you have to check is very easy to access (in the front) and I've only had to check it once every two months and there is rarely anything inside of it. They recommend using the tablets instead of powder or liquid gel. I have used liquid gel from day one and it works perfectly. I really can?t say enough about this dishwasher. I?m one of those guys that literally spent hours upon hours over the past 6 months reviewing every dishwasher imaginable and every brand. I hope this helps those of you that see a dishwasher as a very big expensive purchase because it was for me. 5 STARS!

DO NOT BUY THIS HUNK OF POO!! We've had this thing less than 2 years and it has just been a real lemon from day 1. I suspect the good reviews on this thing are fake. I routinely find broken pieces of plastic from the top rack in the bottom of the dishwasher after it has been run. The pieces that are breaking off are the ones that hold the wheels on the track for the upper rack so now it flies off the rack all the time and it just the biggest pain ever to pull out and get back in (especially when it is conveniently full of dishes). The little soap door opens half the time. And sometimes, it opens at the end of the cycle so everything is covered in soap when we open it. Just really, really horribly disappointed. The phrase "They don't make 'em like they used to" is just so true with this enormous POS. Keep your crappy old dishwasher from the 80s. It is better than this one. We miss our crappy old dishwasher :(

Ok overall

Works great as far as washing. But, you have to use good detergent to get the great results. Like several others the wheels on the top rack have broken. Just hoping this doesn't get any worse.

Needed a dish washer since the one it replaced was not working. Bought this particular one due to the amenities it had. It' quiet and does an excellent job. Couldn't ask for anything better.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It is so quiet. Some of the cycles that it has are very different than what I prior had but just love it. It has stainless steel inside and that is nice as well. Love the racks in the top and bottom.

This dishwasher makes doing dishes not so bad.

I HATE doing dishes. Hate's a strong word. But, I hate doing dishes with a bloody passion. Worst chore in the house in my opinion. But, this dishwasher makes it not so bad. I don't stress about how many dishes I can fit into it before I have to start hand washing and I don't worry about my kids doing dishes. This dishwasher is the roomiest dishwasher I've ever owned. I can fit dishes from breakfast and dinner into this thing for one wash. It's also the quietest dishwasher I've ever owned. My kids (teenagers) have to do dishes on their chore night and I'm not afraid of what I'm going to find stuck to the bottom of a glass or frying pan because they didn't rinse them well enough before putting them in the racks. Every dishwasher I've ever owned, up to this one, has always had the handle that you'd have to push in to pull open the dishwasher. Almost every one of those broke. This dishwasher appealed to me because of the handle on the outside of it. The handle on the door is great because I'm not afraid of it breaking and it gives me another place to hang another dish towel! It's the small things, what can I say? The controls are on top, and even though our counter top hides the buttons, it hasn't made a difference because when you open the door you can select whatever wash you need.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I would not buy this dishwasher. Flaw in design.

There is a basic flaw in the design. Rack adjustment to the railing keeping on breaking. Once the adjustment breaks upper level rack hangs /falls off from one side. Because of that the dishes in upper level rack do not get clean. Since we bought this dishwasher in 2013. The adjustment has broken 5 times. Sears has send a repair man each time. They have fix the issue for this to happen again. They have replace the entire railing and all the racks last time. It lasted us 3 hours. Based on the protection plan they are supposed to replace the dishwater if the same problem happens 4 times. They not replace our dishwasher so far. If I could give negative stars I would have given that to this dishwasher.

So quiet!!

Best appliance I've ever bought! The stainless steel tub seems to wash better than my old plastic one, and doesn't show all the dirt/grime my other did either. My husband and I have had to check several times to see if the dishwasher is even running...because it's SO quiet! You can barely hear it. I love the adjustable dish racks...makes putting large bowls and tall cups in so much easier (we used to have to hand wash those as they wouldn't fit in the dishwasher). Holds many more dishes than our old one too. Honestly can't think of anything negative about this product. HIGHLY recommend!

I love this dishwasher! I have not figured everything out yet, but so far, I am very pleased! It is so much quieter than my old dishwasher, it cleans my dishes better and is much more efficient. I would recommend this product.

Really a great dishwasher!

My wife and I remodeled our kitchen recently and after a great deal of research, online, in store, and consumer reports, we decided to go with this line of Kenmore appliances. We could not be happier with the performance and easy of installation of this dishwasher. Dishes come out very clean, even if put in with stuck on dirty food, and it is whisper quiet. Much quieter than our old dishwasher, and it was a late 90's model. The only thing we didn't like was that the stainless shows fingerprints badly...but with a little magic stainless cleaner/fingerprint preventer, problem solved.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Design flaw on Top Rack Height adjuster Part # W10350376

I did a lot of research before buying this dishwasher. We are preparing our home for sale and wanted to put all new appliances in. So I purchased all Kenmore...fridge, stove and dishwasher. I assumed that because it had so many stars that it would be a good one. Within 6 months of using it the plastic parts that are molded to hold the wheels on to the top rack (see part number in headline) began to break off. Eventually they all broke off which means that I can't use my top rack as it won't stay on the tracks without the wheels and the wheels won't stay on without the plastic pieces that snap into them. (By the way, I am out of warranty by only a few days but that didn't matter). I can order the parts (I will need two of them) for $81 plus shipping and tax. Or Sears gave me the option of buying a 1 year extended warranty for $217.29. I wanted someone with Sears to answer this question... "If this part is defective and it seems that everyone I talked to in the industry (6 people) knows it, why hasn't the problem been addressed?" Why do they just keep saying that it is either under warranty or it's not, and that's the only answer I get. Why don't they change the design???? Little tiny plastic pieces won't and don't hold up the whole top rack without eventually cracking and breaking off. But this design is used on most of the Kenmore dishwashers. My advice is don't buy it if it uses this plastic top rack adjuster to hold the wheels on the track....bad design. Or make sure you buy the extended warranty and when that warranty runs out, well, good luck!
