Product Description

Kenmore 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Efficient Performance

The Kenmore 24" built-in dishwasher 1569 tackles the tough baked-on grease and food to leave your dishes clean. Rotating spray jets in the TurboZone option blast away food particles, while the UltraWash HE filter traps debris and keeps it from sticking to your clean plates. For delicate glassware and dishes, the China/Gentle cycle offers a light wash that still manages to get in those tight places. This Kenmore built-in dishwasher is also energy- and water-efficient. It automatically adjusts resource output to suit each individual load, saving you water and money.

  • 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.
  • TurboZone® with Rotating Spray Jets uses 6 pressurized spray nozzles to blast through tough, stuck-on residue and foods like lipstick, oatmeal, cheese and baked-on egg.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Built to resist stains, shrug-off corrosion and increase heat retention for improved drying performance, the stainless steel tub delivers service that shines.

Been using for a year
I bought this on Black Friday 2011 and have been using every day for a year. At the time I bought it, there were tons of reviews to rely upon. This is the best dishwasher I have ever owned. It has a lot of options, but we tend to just use the normal wash with no heat dry. Every now and then we use the turbo clean on pots and pans, but not often. Except for when the water fills, it is extremely quiet running, so we can run it anytime. The two filters are very fine mesh and very easy to unscrew, clean and screw back in. Whenever I feel the dishes are not as clean as possible, I rinse the filters and put them back in. I would buy it again. Having said that, there are just a few minor downsides. The controls being where they are, we are constantly accidently turning it on. There is a lock function, but we never get around to setting it. We just push clear and it turns off. The stainless steel is impossible to keep nice looking and the rollout dish holder racks are not smooth functioning.

Beware Control Unit Breakdown
Item was purchased in February 2012. Dishes are only washed when washer is filled -- about once per month. One month after the warranty ended (~12 - 15 wash loads), the "hi-temp wash" stopped working. I called SEARS and was told that my warranty had ended and they couldn't help me -- I would need to shell out another couple hundred $$ for a repair. The Maytag it replaced was about 18 years old and just kept on plugging until the tub started to leak. I expected more from SEARS. If cars can have 5-10 year power train warranties, why can't a dishwasher??? It should last more that a year without malfunctioning!!

Bought this a little over a year ago (Sept 1 2013)

And the top rack has already fallen out of the laundry machine. All of the little plastic pegs have literally broken off of the top basket. Bummer.

Broken already!

We just recently (June) purchased a new dishwasher. We ended up looking at ********** since we have lost faith in the Kenmore brand due to various issues with our products. In the end , we decided to give Sears another try and we purchased a Kenmore dishwasher in June. Today, my dishwasher has no power and it will be a week until someone can look at it! Not very happy with the Kenmore brand and Sears service! I think this is the last time we purchase through Sears.

Made with cheap plastic parts

The plastic parts are always breaking and need to be replaced. and these parts are not cheap. Don't be fooled by the stainless steel inside because everything else is cheap.

I have had this dishwasher for a few weeks now, so do not have any extended experience with it. I was amazed though at how quiet it runs. The first time I ran it, as a test after hooking it up, I opened it up just to see if there was really water running through it because it was so quiet. The turbo jets are great, but not as wonderful as I was led to believe, (of course I gave them a difficult test). Because I only need to run the dishwasher a couple of times a week, everything gets per-rinsed, so I have not had any issues with the cleaning at all. I did give it a test with dried peanut butter on a knife, and it came out spotless. In the short term it has been great...I hope it lasts longer than the last one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Upper Rack Regularly Fails FRUSTRATION

I agree with the poor reviews about the upper clips for the adjustable rack failing. I bought this unit and they all began failing within 2 months. Foolishly, we just kept living with broken clips until the warranty was out and then one year and one month after purchasing a clip totally failed (broke off) and made the top rack unusable. I've now paid $100 for four new clips (little 2x2 plastic is $21 per and tax, shipping etc). DON'T BUY THIS UNIT if you do more than a few loads a week and/or have babies in the house where you use high temp to sterilize. I have 5 small kids and the last thing I needed was another expense. They do warranty the parts for 360 days so, if there's even a small crack or abrasion in the new clips, I'll be again ordering new ones before they totally fail and we're hand washing again.

It washes dishes!

My wife and I could not be more pleased with this machine. We looked many places and found this Kenmore to meet our needs the best. It works exceptionally well and is very quiet compared to our old machine. It is also extremely well built.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Dishwasher

We purchased this for our rental property. It was easy to install. We ran it and could not believe how quiet it was. The jets appeared to be working very strong as well. Very happy with our purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
