Product Description

Kenmore 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Clean Better at Sears

This Kenmore 24" built-In dishwasher 1277 is equipped with a pressurized spray nozzle that aggressively yet gently tackles grease and stains. The energy-efficient UltraWash HE Wash System uses water effectively, and the SmartWash HE cycle gives you more control without wasting a drop. During the wash cycle, the UltraWash HE Filter traps food particles to guarantee optimal performance. The rinse aid dispenser ensures reduced streaks and spots. This Kenmore dishwasher features an attractive stainless steel tub for improved drying that makes your glasses and dishes sparkling clean.

  • 45 dBA + 360° PowerWash Technology (CU rated # 6) 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.

fantastic dishwasher
I've had this dishwasher for a month. It is a new model, released on Feb 23rd. The other reviewer who gave it one star claiming they've owned it for over a year has got other issues besides a bad dishwasher. Previously I owned another Kenmore Elite for 13 years, and it started acting flakey, so after trying a couple low cost fixes (thermal fuse) that briefly worked, I decided it was time for a new one. A lot has improved in 13 years. I picked this one up and installed it myself. (Don't forget the dishwasher install kit with the 3/4" garden hose to 3/8" comp. drain fitting...) It's is super quiet. I have to put my ear up to it when it is running to listen. It's louder when draining but still very quiet. Lots of room for dirty dishes. The clean styling and hidden controls are nice. The front status light is blue when running, red when drying, and green when finished. With the modern HE dishwashers, cycle times are much longer and rinse aide for proper drying is mandatory.

Underbuilt and overpriced
This dishwasher seems to wash well, is quiet and it looks good but has poor interior build quality. The tub is stainless steel. Almost everything else on the interior is plastic. Most concerning is the fact that structural support for the top rack relies on plastic parts. When the top rack is out and loaded with heavy dishes, it has a tilt that makes it appear to be on the verge of collapse. If the dishwasher is closed by pulling off center on the door, the entire tub flexes. This does not inspire confidence. Adequate drying requires the use of rinse aid. This appears to be a "feature" of most new dishwashers. Seems like a step back. Other dishwashers I've used completely dry without rinse aid. Even with rinse aid, substantial puddles of water are usually left in this dishwasher after a cycle. Some of the puddles are trapped by poorly designed parts that prevent the water from ever draining in certain areas.

Very happy with this dishwasher.

We've had this dishwasher for about 6 months now. We previously had a Kenmore Elite that was about 20 years old. We have been happy with other Kenmore purchases and trusted this brand for dishwashers. It also helped that it was recommended by Consumer Reports. This dishwasher is extremely quiet -- as others have commented, sometimes I forget that it is running. The lights on the front panel help guide me to when it is running (blue), when dishes are drying (red) and when it has cooled down and can be opened to unload (green). I haven't had an issue with wet dishes -- we use the rinse aid. I usually run it in the evening, so I run the Smart Wash and don't worry about how long it takes because we're not going to unload the dishes until the morning.

This is a great appliance. We purchased this dishwasher on sale.great buy!

Washer does an excellent job, but operator's manual could be more explanatory concerning the indicator lights.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good performance for value!

Dishwasher is very quite and efficient in it's operation. Stainless is of high quality and matches other Kenmore Elite products, even if different years apart.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Feeling lucky.

Bought this dishwasher in October of 2013. Installed it a month or two later. Its been okay, the soap usually needs to be rinsed off of some dishes after each cycle. Today a plastic part from the spinning arm on the bottom fell onto the heating element on the bottom. I'm feeling very lucky I was home when it happened. The parts to fix it are under $100 so it could be worse. I could be replacing my house instead of a bunch of burnt plastic smelling dishes.

Clean dishes again!

We had a top-of-the-line Samsung...very pricey...and it was horrible! Dishes didn't get clean, etc etc etc. After only 3 years, the plastic pieces holding the trays were breaking and then the main computer board went out. So we went with Kenmore and this new machine is a DREAM! Dishes are clean and literally sparkle. Can't think of anything bad to say at all! I just wish we had gone with Kenmore 3 years ago and saved the hassle and money of the Samsung.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
