Product Description

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

This Kenmore 24" built-In dishwasher 1278 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.

  • 43 dBA +360° PowerWash Technology + Smart Dry (CU Rated #4) 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.

Silent, Stylish, and Spacious
This dishwasher exceeds my expectations. Last night I placed my entire crock pot into the upper shelf and was able to close it easily. Everything sparkles when it comes out. I am glad I paid a little extra for the 43 dba level of quietness. There is just one thing, though. I like all the digital lights on my appliances to be the same color and I like the Kenmore Elite "pleasing blue"; however, when the dishwasher finishes its cycle, the display goes to "garish green". Honestly, Kenmore, I can use a blue light to figure out when the cycle is complete, just as easily as I can with a green light. Overall, I love it!!

Serious flood risk to your home.
After using the machine for 14 months we woke up one morning to find our kitchen flooded and water soaking the carpet in the basement under the dishwasher. Turns out there was nothing securing the pump to the frame. The pump was 'secured' by using two measly clamps to attach the pump to the hose. One of the clamps popped off and water went everywhere. Water compromised virtually every electrical component. Sears has replaced some of the parts and others are on back order. No use of D/W for 2 weeks at least. Getting billed labor too. So upset with sears and they have not offered much for their product failure. SOOOOOO upset with sears.

Another Sears Disappointment

Less than 1 year after purchase the machine started spewing water onto the floor. It took 2 service calls to have it repaired. Now having to replace the guides on the upper shelf. When its working its a great washer, but the dependability of the unit is terrible.

Super quiet and great cleaning

I chose this model largely based on the positive reviews and am happy I did. The biggest difference with this dishwasher and my old one is just how incredibly quiet it is. With my old Bosch dishwasher, it was hard to have a phone call in the kitchen while it was running. With this model, I can hardly tell it's even running. The cleaning is excellent, but the one trick I learned after reading other reviews is that you have to add rinse aid. Without the rinse aid, glass items came out a little cloudy, but once I added rinse aid everything comes out sparkling clean. My only gripe with this dishwasher is that the buttons on top of the door are very sensitive. Even just brushing up against them sometimes activates the button, and then you have to hit cancel. I would prefer one physical power button like the old Bosch unit had so you can ensure it doesn't get turned on by mistake. Otherwise, this is the best dishwasher I've ever used, and I should mention it looks sleek and attractive under the cabinet as well.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Machine!

Even though we have only had this dishwasher for 2 weeks, my wife loves the performance and the quietness. We previously had a Whirlpool (nothing against this product) but we decided on this Kenmore we purchased from Sears. Installation went well and we have enjoyed this Kenmore. Not only quiet, but dishes come out very clean!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Product...very quiet

A great replacement to an outdated, aging dishwasher. It is very quiet and does a great job on its contents. Delivery was on time, and installation went smoothly.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The seal leaks constantly, and the wheels on the top rack just broke this week. We have had this less than TWO years. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Leaks after 3 months. Terrible warranty service.

Purchased this dishwasher in Jan 2014. It looks great, cleans dishes very well and it's extremely quiet. Three months later, it developed a leak from the overfill protection float (the round device in the right front of the tub). It has been leaking for two weeks now. Definitely do not recommend this appliance to anyone.
