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 :(

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!

Wheels broken

I've only had this for 1.5 years and the wheels on the top rack have broken off. So now the top rack will fall out when you try to slide it out, unless you move it very carefully. And of course it is most likely to fall when it is full of dishes. I have already broken a few glasses because of this. You can order new parts to replace the wheels, but with shipping it came to $75. That's a lot of money for 2 little parts, considering the starting cost of this dishwasher to begin with. I was expecting something better from Sears.

Kmart quality at Sears price

Soap door spring broke within a year. Then the soap door release broke. These where minor annoyances that my husband repaired. Now 3 years and one month after purchase the motor has burned out. I expected more than 3 years out of a $650 dishwasher. Should have known better than trusting the sears salesman.

Buy the extended warranty

For the first year, this dishwasher performed beautifully. Almost exactly 365 days after we bought it, however, it started to have problems. On a cold night, the plastic (!) water valve broke, first causing no water to enter and then exploding water all over the kitchen and into the basement . Luckily, we were there when it happened and could turn off the water supply. Then, the drying stopped working. We have now had the machine for 17 months and have had 4 or 5 visits from repairmen since December. They have replaced the fan, the soap and JetDry dispenser, and the vent, as well needing adjustments to several other bits and pieces. When they encounter a new problem, they rarely have the needed part on their trucks, meaning that the part has to be ordered and they have to come back again to install it. Scheduling their visits isn't bad as long as you are at home every day. Bottom line: Don't even think about buying this dishwasher unless you are willing to also pay for the extended warranty. Our Sears salesman suggested it (as salesmen always do), but I was convinced by the seriousness of the way he offered his suggestion. It was clear that we wouldn't be the first buyers to run into problems.

sparkling clean dishes

Had this dishwasher about 3 months. There was a slight problem with installation, it required my husband to go to Sears and retrieve some anchor screws to hold it in place. The detergent dispensary is a little low on the inside... so putting a tall dish next to it prevents it from opening properly. Overall I really like this dishwasher. It is very quiet, and my dishes have never looked cleaner. I would buy it again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
