  • The SmartWash™ HE Cycle automatically adjusts water and energy use to the load size and degree of cleaning needed, helping save valuable resources.
  • The UltraWash® HE Filter traps food particles and keeps them from re-entering the dishwasher, so water is cleaner and dishes shine bright.
  • 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.

It really is great!
We bought this the first week of October 2012 after having a late 90's KitchenAid washer finally go out. I have to say that we could not be happier with this dishwasher! The cleanliness of the dishes and silverware was superb. We had gotten used to seeing brown spots on the silverware and white streaks on glasses, but not anymore! Also this machine is VERY quiet. We are also happy with the wide range of cleaning cycles as well as the adjustable features in the racks. All in all I'd say I don't think you can find a better dishwasher for the price. Honestly, I think the higher priced models do not have anything on this dish washer, so I have to say, great product, great price!

This dishwasher does not hold enough dishes to worry about washing. My previous dishwasher (a Maytag) could hold large cookie sheets on the sides of the bottom, but this one is too low between racks. If I fill the bottom with plates, then slide the rack in, all the plates fall forward against each other making it impossible to clean them, So I have to reach in and stand them up again. My dessert bowls or small salad bowls do not fit conveniently, and I can only get about 4 of them in the dishwasher in the space that should hold 10 or 12. The glasses in the top rack keep falling over, and do not fit nicely in the place they should go. There is very little flatware space. The designated places to hold individual forks or spoons are too narrow for the handles of my flatware, and my flatware handles are not unusually wide. Don't waste time on the Turbo Jet Feature. When you set something back there, you lose space where other things could go. And it takes several hours to wash using the turbo jet setting. I only use the one-hour wash because I dont have time for a 4-hour wash since the other half of the dishes are waiting their turn. The one hour wash is not energy efficient but I just cant do this all night long. This machine will not hold a 9 x 13 baking pan standing on the side because the space is only about an inch and a half instead of two inches. I did not have high blood pressure until I bought this piece of junk. Skip it get a Maytag with a big basket.

check the dimensions carefully!!

Once I decided this was the dishwasher I wanted my husband measured it in the store, read the specs online, measured it in the store again and was assured by the salesman that there was still some wiggle room available if you drop the levelers down all the way. Satisfied that it would fit, we purchased it. Well....once it was taken out of the box and we attempted to put it in the space we found it did not fit. The dishwasher has a minimum height of 33.5" the space it was to go in was 33.5". What we did not know is that there is a small raised area in the front of this dishwasher and that "bump" prevented it from sliding in to the space. We took off the wheels, we lowered the levelers as far as they could go but that raised area would not fit under the counter. Luckily my husband was able to remove a thin decorative piece of wood on the front of my counter and then the dishwasher rolled right in to the space. Just wanted to let you know when checking the dimensions, be sure your appliance will absolutely, definitely fit in the space provided before your purchase. With granite counter tops and several layers of floor spots are tight. My husband installed it himself. He said there was very little room to get your hands in to make connections. This was in comparison to our previous 20 year old Kenmore that connected so much easier. Hey, times change, products are updated, it's been 20 years! Other than that, this dishwasher is exactly what I was looking for. It looks great and although I haven't run a full load of dirty dishes we did run it through a cycle with nothing in it. It is sooooo quiet. Unlike the previous 20 year old machine that could be heard running throughout the entire house. In addition my husband said it is not true stainless steel on the outside. When he placed his magnetic level on the side of the machine it stuck. True stainless steel is not magnetic.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

not the TOP of the LINE but Perfection!

Purchased a new dishwasher on Friends and Family sale night. Great sales person patient and true customer service. It was delivered and my husband installed problems. We ran the dishwasher and it is so quiet we were not sure it was running. Compared to our old dishwasher this one is like a Mercedes. Everything came out sparkling clean, dry and we could not be happier!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Superb Performance -- Great Value

We love this dishwasher. Our "old" dishwasher (approx. 10 yrs old) was still in excellent condition, however, it was just to darn loud, and didn't do all that great a job cleaning the dishes and flatware. In addition to a quiet dishwasher that cleaned well, we wanted something that was energy efficient and had a few more "bells and whistles" than the standard "contractors" model that was installed when the house was built (we are the second owners). This dishwasher is just about perfect for our needs. At 51 decibels, it's not the quietest on the market; however, it is so quiet (we can hardly hear it operating) that we can't imagine paying more money for a washer solely to get an even lower decibel rating. It's estimated to cost only $22 per year to operate (using a gas hot water heater) and qualifies for a $50 energy rebate from our local utilities company. Further, it does not require the water to be softened. Our water is rated as "medium hard"; however, this dishwasher requires less than half the detergent that our older model did; yet -- more importantly -- it does an excellent job of cleaning. We also like the "Smart Wash" feature that senses the amount of items in the load and how dirty they are to determine how long the wash cycle should be. So, if you do even a superficial job scraping and/or rinsing items before loading them in the washer, the wash cycle will be shorter, thus saving even more energy (and money). Generally, the washer uses less than 4 gallons of water per load. Another nice feature is that both racks are made entirely of nylon, instead of metal with a rubber coating (thus preventing cracking and rusting). The interior is made entirely of stainless steel which looks nicer and helps dry the contents better and more efficiently. This item was on sale; so, all things considered, we feel we got a product that performs nearly as well as some of the Kenmore Elite products costing nearly twice as much.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Only the water discharging into the sink will you hear...

After shopping for a solid month, we couldn't pass up Sears' one night only; 2 hour Friends & Family sale. This unit was already marked down 20% - then further reduced another 15%. TIME TO BUY.. Installation was easy, instructions clearly written. Unit is very quiet, only the water being discharged into the sink is heard while operating. Holds more dishes that my 12 yr old Kenmore, which never failed me, it still worked just fine. Upgrading all of the kitchen appliances, started with the dishwasher. Love the stainless interior, comes with a new discharge hose & clamps, I was glad I bought the optional install kit as it came with all the pieces needed including a 96 inch steel braided water hose. If you're thinking about buying this unit - contemplate no more - JUST DO IT...

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Clean & Quiet

This dishwasher is so quiet that sometimes I wonder if it is working. I like the Smart Wash that conserves water and electricity. The dishes take longer to wash but since I usually turn it on at night, this causes no difficulties. In the morning the dishes are amazingly clean and dry. I do need to figure out how to arrange bowls in a manner that they do not fall down since the racks are not curves like my last Kenmore. I appreciate the extendable rake on top that adjusts for higher dishes. The tips in the instructions make using this dishwasher easy and worry free.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore stainless steel lined dishwasher

After comparing several brands, price ranges, and customer ratings, we decided on this Kenmore dishwasher. It met our requirements for a stainless steel lined unit, adjustable rack, nylon coated racks, and turbo wash cycles. We are very satisfied so far with it's ability to clean the dishes and with the choice of wash cycles.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
