Please note people that the racks are not nylon. Maybe they are nylon coated but a magnet should not stick to nylon. The silverware rack may be nylon but most of the racks are steel with a coating just like my old dishwasher. The dishwasher is much quieter than my 20 year old fancy Kenmore unit that it replaced. The unit does make some low tone noises that sound like our garage door is opening but it is not loud. Just a low tone. I tried using the dishwasher without the Jetdry rinse aide but the dishes would not dry. It really must be used to aid in getting the water off the dishes. The dishes get much dryer if you crack the door open after the unit shuts off and let them air dry for a few hours. This is with or without the heated drying option. Not sure why my other dishwasher dried better using no heat. I reviewed other dishwashers and think this is a common problem with the new energy efficient models. I only have 2 people in the house and wash about twice a week. I like the 1 hour wash option because the sound is more constant. The regular long cycle sounds like it turns on and off a lot to save energy and use the 2 hours to help soak the dishes clean. I would rather hear a constant hum than a start and stop all the time. It cleans well with the 1 hour wash but I do not put the dishes until they have had a quick rinse/sponge. I have not tried the Turbo option so I can't comment on that. The Stainless interior looks nice. I like the removable silverware rack compared to some models that have it in the door. I think KitchenAid makes this unit. Their interior looks the same. The dishwasher seems like it hold just as much or more than my old unit. I have not used the adjustable rack height yet. I got this thing for $535 minus $50 coupon code for using my Sears Card so it ended up about $485 plus tax.
Cleans very well and very spacious. Doesn't dry completely, but does a better job if you use a rinse agent. I haven't tried yet but it might help to open the door after the dishwasher has finished running.

The things I like about my Kenmore dishwasher is that it is very quiet and does a very good job of cleaning the dishes. My one major dislike is that the bottom rack is so low to the floor. It is not convenient to have to bend down so far to load and unload. The Kenmore dishwasher that this new one replaced was 23 years old!!!! To me, this shows that Kenmore's are dependable.
I like the stainless tub interior. Only problem was the cover for the rinse aid was missing. Customer service is shipping a new one this week.
Do not hesitate to buy. We have had this for about 6+ months now. 6 months later I still tell my husband how happy I am with this purchase. Cleans great! Pretty quiet. Takes a while, but that does not bother me at all. Prior to this I bought a GE dishwasher and it was awful and cleaned NOTHING then the GE broke 6 months later! I bought this dishwasher to replace the GE and I could not be happier. I have had many Kenmore appliances and have never had a complaint about one.
We had to buy a dishwasher to replace a very expensive lemon we had before. I was really stressed and didn't want to spend a lot for the replacement. This is a great dish washer! It's extremely quiet and washes the dishes very well. I really love the interior and it is very nice looking on the exterior. A very happy customer!
This dishwasher works great!! The dishwasher that was in our house when we moved in finally kicked the bucket and had to be replaced. We bought all of our other appliances at Sears so that's the first place we looked. This one was a great deal and works 100X better than the one we were using!!!!!
this is my fifth dishwasher since owning my home. it is great! the old one was plastic and held stains and smells, not so with the stainless interior. While a cycle takes longer, the dishes are perfectly cleaned. I would recommend it to friends.
Though this model does not have a garbage grinder and I didn't discover until after installation that rinse-aid is recommended, it was the most bang for our buck! It was easy to install - just needed a $6 adapter which should be included. It cleans well and is so much quieter than our 35 year old KitchenAid workhorse. The 1 hour cycle is all we normally need.
This is a excellent dishwasher and the price was right for the options it has. This is the same model that we had for seven years with no problems the only reason we replaced it is because our other appliances are stainless steel.
Just had dishwaser installed a week ago and love it. dishes come out very clean and the turbo feature works very well. love the stainless steal interior it looks and feels clean.
What more do you want in a dishwasher? Our old one we'd only turn on when we'd go to bed, it was so noisy. This one, we can get it started while we're watching TV the next room over, or even when still chatting in the kitchen. Very quiet!
I was somewhat concerned about my choice from other reviews, but I must say this is a very quiet machine and it does clean the dished very nicely. I have a problem with my RO line after installing but Sears repair came very quickly and all problems solved.
Purchased this dishwasher online including installation. Sears guy called to tell me when he would arrive, he took my 21 year old Kenmore away and installed the new Kenmore. This new machine is very quiet and great at cleaning everything. Now my refrigerator sounds loud. I would definitely recommend this unit to a friend or family member. I hope to get another 20 years out of this unit.
We've had this dishwasher for 2 years and made a major mistake in not buying the extended warranty. Shortly after a year the heating element went out and needed to be replaced. After replacing the element the dishwasher worked for another couple months when thermostat quit working. Turns out it was a flaw from the factory and was installed wrong. Well this issue melted the tub severely since the heating element would get so hot. In the end we replaced the thermostat and now the dishwasher leaks from several places (not all in relation to the melted tub) and needs to be replaced. Stay Away from this model!!!
This dishwasher meets our needs perfectly. It looks nice, it works great and we love the turbo wash. I like the design as well, with the silverware holder on the side rather than on the door like some designs.
