Cleans great. The only problem is that after 7 months the thin plastic axles broke completely off on one wheel and partially on the other three. Why a machine with such high reviews and with such a large price tag would be made this way I do not know. I, however, do not want anyone else to buy into the idea of having the best when it does not come close to living as long as even the cheap models.
works quite well and very quiet. like the display in front that lets me know where it is in the cycle. the only thing that i would add is a 3rd tray at the top for flatware like bosch and kitchenaid dishwasher. otherwise, very nice

First, as most of the other reviews mention the dishwasher does a great job cleaning the dishes. If you put oatmeal bowls in the turbo wash zone they will come out clean (yep- I tried it, my kids have a nasty habit of leaving dried oatmeal on bowls). Now to the design flaws, first the top rack has adjusters. If you have the top rack to the lowest adjustment you can't have normal size dinner plates on the bottom rack. If you put it on the top adjustment the rack slides out once a couple of cups are added. I read other reviews about the top rack sliding out and I thought it was the reviewer didn't have there dishwasher level. That isn't the case the reason the top rack slides out is because the adjustment is in the back, so the minute you start adding dishes, the top rack sags just enough that is rolls right out! The bottom rack comes off its roller too. It doesn't bug me as much as the top rack falling out at me all the time. I'm sure for this price point there are lot dishwashers that clean just as good without the design flaws.
This unit does a fantastic job cleaning dishes. It is very, very quiet. At first, we didn't know if it was running or not. The filter is easy to remove and clean with warm, soapy water and a soft scrub brush. So those are the positives. The negative part of this washer is that the wheels on the upper rack height adjuster break easily. The top rack just doesn't seem to be sturdily made. I have had to replace the height adjusters twice, and noticed last night that one of them has broken again. We have been careful pulling the top rack out since it broke the first time, but it doesn't seem to matter. It is not difficult to replace the part, but it costs $32.45, so in two years I will have spent well over $100 (shipping isn't cheap) replacing a poorly designed and manufactured part, and I can expect to replace them again in the future.
I've only had this dishwasher for 2 weeks, but everything seems to be working excellent. This dishwasher is extremely quiet and cleans the dishes extremely well. As of right now, I would recommend this dishwasher without reservation.
It is quiet and reasonably attractive in terms of styling. Those are the only good aspects of this dishwasher. This machine makes your dishes DIRTIER than when they are put into it. You must prewash your dishes completely. You must scrub and clean them thoroughly before putting them into this worthless hunk of junk. STILL they come out with a dark film that gets thicker each time they go through. This machine cannot remove even a thin film of cooking oil even if rinsed and dishes are spaced THREE ROWS APART. We tried different settings, different soaps, etc. Problem is, when you call Sears tech support, they will try to BLAME YOU. They will say it is because you are not using a rinsing agent (ridiculous) or because you are not cleaning the filter (wrong - we clean it all the time). We are having it serviced again for the 2nd time. Hopefully we can get help with this. We paid a lot of money for this and expected better.
