Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Powerful Innovation
Designed to power through the toughest tasks, the Kenmore Elite 24" built-in dishwasher 1396 features innovative 360° PowerWash technology. This exclusive spray arm even gets into the corners, blasting dishes from all angles. This Kenmore Elite built-in dishwasher also offers TurboZone® with rotating spray jets, which means there's no need to pre-soak. The pressurized spray nozzles are designed to remove the toughest food stains and give you sparkling clean dishes. The 24" built-in dishwasher's Ultra Wash HE washing system electronically monitors each load, providing just the right amount of water and temperature for efficient cleaning.
- 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.
- The ENERGY STAR qualified UltraWash HE System uses up to 40% less electricity and 68% less water, compared to some dishwashers, for a powerful clean that wastes less 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 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.
- 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 am one of those extensive product review research type people. I was looking to replace an old GE dishwasher. The major product review authorities pointed generally at the Bosch line, LG etc. Kenmore was usually listed but not until the middle of the pack. I went to look at the various dishwashers at the ususal major chain stores, including Sears. The Kenmore Elite line is as good or better than the "recommended" brands. It is also the only one I found with the new 360 degree wash technology. This is revolutionary technology. I fully expect the other major manufacturers will catch on and upgrade their wash systems to this as well.
I have always found Sears to be very good for customer satisfaction. In additon to the normal warranty, Sears offers an extended comprehensive in home repair warranty on the dishwasher for a very reasonable price which I purchased.
I beleive in the old adage of "Don't tell me...Show me". Well, I have run the unit multiple times and I am not just satisfied, I am extremely happily impressed with how clean and spotless the dishes and flatware come out. Especially glasses and stemware. Hats off to Sears for not putting profit ahead of quality, service and reliability.
We received this unit two weeks ago now. It has not worked since it was installed. The sevice man that came out was excellent and did what he could on the first pass. Three parts were required initially, two of which were significant. Once they were received and subsequently installed another part was discoverd to be faulty. It could not have been determined intially as the controller board would have had to work for it to be diagnosed. Waiting for installation and maybe it will begin to work. It was a heavily discounted floor model but still should have worked.
The reason this is discounted from the $1600 we paid in 2011 is that it is a piece of junk. The first thing to go wrong was the top rack. Now after two years the dishwasher leaks intermittently from below the door. We have been in an ongoing saga with Sears techs for nearly three months and it is still not fixed. The maintenance agreement is not worth the paper it's written on as despite the fact we have had 4 visits they are now telling me it's because I use finish **** that does not have HE on the bottle. I told the tech that HE detergent is for washing machines and even called Finish to verify that no dish washing detergents have HE on them! The tech then backtracked and said he must have been confused! don't buy anything from Sears and don't ever think that buying their master maintenance agreement is a worthwhile thing. We are ready to give up and buy a cheap dishwasher from ********** as this situation is beyond belief .
I've owned this DW for 9 months and like it a lot. When it is operating I can't even hardly hear it until it goes into the drain cycle and even then it's super quiet. It cleans very good. The only thing in my opinion that it is lacking (like most of them available) is an interior light. My old GE Monogram DW had a light and I really miss it! Most all other kitchen appliances have lights - why don't medium priced DW's?

This machine cleans so well and I can't believe how quiet it is. The adjustable rack is awesome as I use alot of pots and pans when cooking so it makes a great way to help get them clean

What a PLEASURE it is to again have Kenmore dishwasher that does a great job. The Turbo-Zone option is super - so far, it has handled every stuck on mess we've thrown at it. And the glassware comes out sparkling. Also, this is the quietest dishwasher we've ever owned. When the installers ran the new Kenmore Elite to test it, I couldn't really tell is was even running - the installer had to note that it was, in-fact, on. We'll see how it does over the long-haul, but if it's like our other Kenmore appliances (washer, dryer, fridge at 20+ years), we should get many years of trouble-free use. Update Jan 2014 - wow - poor quality, not like old Kenmores. We are waiting three months for a new front panel, and since model no longer available, they can't replace the unit. Look elsewhere than Kemore or Whilrpool.
We have had this dishwasher for 10 months, and have had to replace the adjuster assembly on the top rack twice. The first was covered under the warrantee, but the second cost $38.00. If you want to be spending $76 a year to make your upper rack work, purchase this. We are also having problems with the lighted display. The lights next to the buttons flicker, and you can't tell if they are selected or not. Otherwise, it is a great dishwasher, because it has lots of space inside. Kenmore - a name that should be associated with sturdy-dependable products has missed the mark with the interior of this dishwasher.
bought our dw in Nov 2012 (stainless steel conversion for updating the kitchen) Our old whirlpool dishwasher worked fine, just wanted to treat ourselves.............Mainly my husband takes care of the kitchen & he does not like electronic stuff, nor does he like to make waves. I had noticed for the last several weeks that the dishwasher was not draining entirely when completed. I cleaned the filter (who puts a filter in a dishwasher anyway?) I was just hitting the drain button and shutting the door. The kitchen started to stink so I was hunting around for the culprit and found it is the dishwasher, still not draining. I pushed a button to see what came on in the read out. nothing. So then I tried to run the short cycle, that button did not even work! I asked my husband and he confirmed he was having problems, but thought it was him not the dishwasher. I just ran a cycle and it makes a peculiar noise. Ok that's it, called repair. dropped my call twice. Sent me to a third party recall phone center- not sure why- so then I got on these reviews while trying to make an appointment. I am stunned to see that this dw has not been recalled. Apparently Sears does not read these or take them to heart at least. ok so service finally answered, this is the 17th, they will be out feb 3, really, maybe my warranty will run out before I get this all resolved. I think I will just book an appt every two weeks, I am scared I blew $800 pus repairs. I called my sales associate and she is getting a service man out tomorrow am. finally someone who cares

This machine dropped dead after 16 months of service. It blew a clamp which sprayed water out the front of the machine onto our hardwood floors which then went through the ceiling into our lower level. As it turns out, this small clamp failure caused $800+ in repairs. As it also turns out, this is a habitual problem for this model that Sears has known about yet continued to sell. I've been a loyal Sears customer, but not anymore.
I have had my Kenmore Elite for about 2 years. In the first month on retaining clip for one of the pivoting racks broke off while the dishwasher was on and subsequently melted. This was a minor annoyance, but the dishwasher still functioned as it should, short of being able to really use this one part properly.. No big deal. A few months later another plastic part fell off and melted. I have no idea what part this was. To this day I have no idea what it was. About 5 months ago one wheel from the bottom rack flew off for no reason. Turns out the plastic retaining clips broke. Not a part you every touch, but it broke anyway.. About a month ago the plastic retaining clips for the upper rack broke. This is a part that you can't even see, because it's behind the metal rail. Upon further inspection EVERY SINGLE plastic part is white in color (it came in Dark Gray) and appears to be very brittle. I don't give this dishwasher more than another 2 years before every major plastic component needs to be replaced. I contacted sears regarding this issue, not to have them pay for repairs, because I knew that wasn't happening, but to bring it to their attention. To inform them that they're using an inferior plastic in their Elite branded dishwashers. The representative showed little concern and was eager to get off the phone. This is my very last Kenmore appliance.. It's very unfortunate too, because I just bought my Kenmore elite Gas range a little over a year ago.. :( I wish I would have waited so I could have given them less money.. In short, avoid these dishwashers. They are whisper quiet, but will fall apart.. Stick with other brands. Samsung makes a great product as does whirlpool and maytag.. (avoid GE as well, they fall apart quickly as well)..
it washes fine but I have replaced the top drawer brackets 4 times in the first year of owning this. I tried to get service to replace but they scared me telling me it probably wouldn't be covered and I would have to pay for the service call if it was abuse. So for $20 I'll just order and replace myself. it's a major issue with this dishwasher.

I've owned this dishwasher for 2 years now and every year, like clock work, around the anniversary of my purchase I have had to order replacement brackets for the upper drawer because the little (cheap) plastic tongs that hold the rollers on the basket break off and the wheels fall off, making it impossible to use to upper drawer. I'm about to go and order another pair of brackets (one for each side) now but I thought that I would let the rest of the world know about this flaw so that you don't have to deal with this same problem, year after year. It would be a great dishwasher if the internal parts were not made so shoddily/cheaply. Do yourself a favor stay away from this model and all of the other similar models.
