Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher - For Your Messiest Dishes
The Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher 1276 features PowerWash technology to clean your messiest dishes. Using a spiral spray pattern rather than the more common circular pattern, this dishwasher will make your dishes sparkle. Several rotating spray jets make up the TurboZone, a new generation of dish-washing technology that gives you double the coverage of any other 24" built-in dishwasher. This powerful washing cycle won't interrupt your daily life, though, as its 48 decibels are quiet enough for you to carry on a conversation without having to raise your voice. With this Kenmore dishwasher, doing the dishes will seem like magic.
- 360° PowerWash Technology uses an innovative spray arm to reach deep into corners and blast dishes clean from all angles, to quickly erase grease, food and leftover soap.
- 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 Sanitizing Rinse Cycle is NSF-certified to remove 99.99% of bacteria left on dishes, pots, pans and utensils, for a healthier kitchen and dishes clean enough to eat off of.
- Powerful cleaning and energy savings in one, UltraClean blasts the toughest dirt and baked-on messes loose, while using less resources and energy than other heavy duty cycles.
- 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.
- Featuring rapid cleaning power, the 1-Hour Wash Cycle speeds your dishes, silverware and stemware back into service.

We bought this dishwasher in 2011. After one year, we had to have the door latch replaced because the door would not close. In September 2013, we had to have the control panel reset because the dishwasher would not start. On April 9, 2014, we had to have the control panel replaced because we had the same problem again. It cleans well and is very quiet, but we had our last dishwasher (not a Kenmore) 11 years and never had a service call on it. If you buy this model, be sure you get the maintenance agreement because you will need it!!
I really expected more from a Kenmore! This is a very cheaply made appliance that does not clean very well at all! I have always purchased Kenmore and had great luck with them so when I saw this Elite model on sale I was excited, more the fool me, this machine is something that I would expect to cost somewhere in the $300 range NOT the $700-1100 range that I paid! I put a few lightly soiled stove top pieces in it and it did NOT clean them at all! This machine is also hard to install because they want you to have to buy a couple different installation kits from them! Don't buy this machine.
It's quiet and it does clean very well, the look is neat.But that's about it. We bought it in december 2010, got it replace the following spring and broke again last week... The control panel is not up to the task, once in a while you have to close the circuit breaker to rest it... The door twist too much when you open or close it. Had water leaking on the floor few times...had to put silicon near the hinges...The plastic used in the inside get dry and brake. ( wheels of both draw will go and the cutlery basket will need some tyrap !...) When you move the lower draw with some load, it's jumping out of it's tracks. Stay away !
Purchased this dishwasher to replace an older Maytag. This dishwasher is very quiet compared to our old one. I used to have to turn up the TV volume if the dishwasher was running. Am using dishwasher soap packs and finishing rinse (recommended for new models). Dishes are clean & shining when done. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

I am in love with this dishwasher. It is the quietest one I have ever had. We are actually remodeling our kitchen and purchased a whole Kenmore appliance package. And I am totally in love with all the appliances. The dishwasher works great and cleans everything. I also love that the dishes, pots and pans are dried. My old GE didn't dry the cups and glasses very good. Had to wipe everything dry which too a lot of time. I am very satisfied with this dishwasher.
We purchased this dishwasher in September of 2011. I'll agree that it's quiet and does a fine job of cleaning the dishes. First let me say it's only me and my husband in the house so there are no children around to tamper with it. We only run it about once a week and at first it worked okay, BUT then we started having problems with the control panel. At first it was just a minor inconvenience in that the lock button didn't always set. But it's progressively gotten worse. Even though we turn the lock feature on, buttons would light up and the machine would start running and the "cancel" button doesn't work. We'd open the door, leave it open for a while and close it and it would again start running. The past couple weeks we've had to flip the switch on the circuit breaker about once a day to correct the problem. I feel like this is a tempermental creature that I have to tiptoe around. I have to be careful every time I close the door so that I avoid touching any buttons and this model doesn't leave much room for that since the buttoms run practically from the far left side to the far right side. We have actually discussed dumping this one and shopping for another one - and not one with electronic buttons. DON'T BUY THIS MODEL.

I never take time to write reviews...I'm a busy mom. But I absolutely LOVE my Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Had it about 2 years (black front) and no problems. The Sears guy who installed it was awesome. The dishwasher is quiet and (most importantly) gets my dishes clean. I've used Quantum detergent and the Seventh Generation detergent, and get great results with both. Now, I do wipe off food into a trash can before placing in the dishwasher and wipe off dishes/cooking dishes before food dries on them in large chunks. But I do no pre-washing, and the dishes still come out clean. The manual says that the dishwasher uses only 4 gallons of water, which I love given the drought here in Texas. I almost bought a Bosch dishwasher. However, I took some of our actual dishes with me to the Sears store when looking at the dishwashers. The prongs on Bosch are too tight and close together that I would have to skip a row in order to get them to fit. That would defeat any energy/water savings. The Kenmore, on the other hand, had nice roomy prongs that were large enough to fit dishes but still tight enough to pack the dishwasher thoroughly. I love my dishwasher. Thanks, Sears!
