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.

Hate this dishwasher

I purchased this dishwasher in June because it matched the stove and refrigerator I purchased. I did not need a new dishwasher, but my old one was white and I wanted everything to match. I hate this dishwasher. Maybe it's not installed right? My old one washed everything. I didn't even have to rinse my dishes before. Every time I take the silverware out, half of it is still dirty. Tupperware never comes out clean. Now I find myself practically hand washing everything before I put it in. What a waste. I even bought the more expensive dish detergent where as with my old dishwasher, I used the cheap stuff and it worked great. So sorry I bought this. And when I purchased it in June, it was $1,200!

Ultra quiet

My wife had to look at the dishwasher to see if it was really still running. It is nice that there is a light above the handle to tell you exactly what cycle it is on...blue is wash, red is heat dry, and green means done. There is an option for it to ding once the cycle is completely done. This is nice since the machine is so quiet. Only issue is the door won't pop open during cycle if you have a cutting board or a big piece that may be too close to the detergent door.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So quiet!

I love this dishwasher simply because it is so quiet - you can barely tell it is running. It does a great job at getting the dishes clean even when I pack it to the brim with dishes. It also has a lot of different option features such as having your normal wash, wash for pots and pans, quick wash, rinse, and so on. I'm so glad we upgraded to this dishwasher.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Leak all over the floor and less than 2 yrs old

Technician says always buy the extended warrantys, because none of the machines last like they should. Pathetic! Customer Care would not help!

quiet dishwasher

this dishwasher is surprisingly quiet and effective. it does a great job cleaning dishes and we can barely hear it when it runs. the only issue i had with it was the oddly placed basket on the top shelf which was getting in the way so i ended up removing it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
