I bought this to replace a 10 year old Kenmore dishwasher. It is very quiet and cleans very well. The only issue is there is no latch to release the door on any of the dishwashers anymore. My wife has a tough time opening the door, but as I said, that seems to be how all of the dishwashers are made these days. Overall, we're very pleased.
This is a very nice dishwasher with great features that conserve energy while getting dishes very clean. My only complaint is that the installation instructions were not complete/clear, so pay attention to how your old dishwasher comes out as you'll need to reverse those steps to install the new dishwasher. The instructions also said the hose kit (purchased separately) would include a strain relief for installing the power cord but it did not so I had to pause the installation to run to ******* to buy a strain relief. The dishwasher should come with the strain relief rather than assuming the hose kit will have it included. Otherwise, the installation went well and it's a pleasure to use!
I looked several places before coming back to sears. Great customer service. Very friendly staff. Helpful and informative. Delivery was faster than expected. I have had this dishwasher for about a month and I am pleased with how it operates and cleans. Pretty quiet.
This dishwasher replaces a Whirlpool. We have a large family, so our dishwasher gets a great deal of use. This new dishwasher cleans the dishes, has flexibility in loading (large or unusual size pots or dishes), and is exceptionally quiet. We can stand next to the dishwasher, and not hear it running. One negative: the magnet that holds the door closed is very strong. You need to tug very hard to open it, which flexes the control panel -- I'm not sure if that's going to be a problem over time. We're very happy with the Sears installation service -- professional and efficient. They arrived almost exactly when they said they would.
We were not sure how old our diahwasher was since it was in the house when we moved in 15 yrs. ago. It was extremely loud when it was running. This new dishwasher is so quiet you can hardly tell it is on. The capacity is larger the our previous one. I probably won't use the turbozone that often, but it will come in handy for the casseroles that have burned on food.
It is quite, efficient, and holds more than our old washer. Great selection of features and does a great job. Would recommend to anyone. Do yourself a favor if you buy one. Get the hose install kit. It makes instillation a whole lot easier.
This is truly a great dishwasher. I previously had a very expensive ASKO dishwasher made in Sweden. It lasted 6 years and had multiple issues in its life. After walking into my grandparents home and seeing they only bought Kenmore appliances I decided to give the brand a try. This dishwasher is great, its quieter than my last one, about half the price, and the dishes look amazing afterwards. Plus, you can easily add a dish to the cycle, it features a 1 hour wash cycle which is great for entertaining as it gets a load of dishes done between the main course and dessert, something we used today and it worked wonderfully. Whirlpool manufacturers this and markets it as Kenmore. Buying the Kenmore brand means you get a lot of extra features, like the turbo zone for cleaning heavily soiled dishes and adjustable racks on the top level. The comparable Whirlpool did not have those features. Because Sears has Whirlpool make this and they buy in bulk, those features are unique to Kenmore and Sears hopes it draws consumers to the brand. At least thats what the salesperson said. I had the dishwasher installed, which as another reviewer said cut out the sales tax in PA, not sure for other states. Intallers went above and beyond with the hookup but I had to adjust the mounting after they left because it was far from level in all directions. Small issue that was an easy fix but required two additional holes drilled into my cabinets that aren't visible. That was my only pet peeve. I have since convinced my parents to buy the comparable dishwasher and may have talked someone else into one today. I should work at Sears. Anyway, this is a good pick and got higher ratings than most of the Kenmore Elite dishwashers. I got this during the Memorial Day sale and saved a bundle. I will be replacing all my appliances with Kenmore as they break! One more thing, I'm not certain but I think this dishwasher is made in either Canada or USA, NOT China which is a huge plus in my book.

The machine looks very good in the Kitchen and enhances the over all stainless steel look of the other appliances. The sales staff was very helpful and worked thru all of the paper work problems from not updated my account info on the internet.
This dishwasher kenmore dishwasher so far seems like a good value for what I paid. ($444.99 plus tax). There were some issues with delivery and installation and it initially leaked because the parts shipped were not properly tightened but after that got fixed we have not had any issues. It is attractive enough and has a versatile top rack that makes it easier to load if there are taller dishes. The glass rack that can stabilize the wine glasses is also nice. The inside is stainless steel. (I would not purchase a dishwasher with plastic insides). It is very quiet if you stack it well however if you do not stack it well and if you put pots in it then it can be very noisy. The dishes and silverware are very clean and do not spot as long as you also use the Jet rinse additive. Heavily soiled pots and pans to not get clean so don't expect miracles. Overall it seems like a good product / value for the price.

So quiet you can't hear it filling or running. Tried the turbo zone for the first time last night and the dish came out perfectly clean.

Easy install. In fact, it was built by the same factory as my old dishwasher (KitchenAid), so the new one fit right in. Delivery was exactly in the middle of the promised 2 hr time window, and the machine was operational 1 hour later (self-installed). It is so quiet that I was not sure it was running. No longer have the slight residue the old dishwasher left, but it is new with a new water pump, operating at new spray pressures, so better performance was expected. Only issue... there are too many operating button options to choose from. We'd be happy with a simple "ON" rotary ****, but this was on sale.
This dishwasher replaced a 20 year old Kenmore. I didn't need a new one quite yet, but my husband suggested getting a new one, so I jumped on it. I really wanted the stainless steel interior. The old one was white plastic and was stained. The capacity is larger than the old one. When you open the door, it lays closer to the floor. The top rack is adjustable and can fit my taller cups. The flatware rack is about the same as the old one. I do miss the little catchall rack on the top front of my old one. I like to have a place to put the sippy cup inserts and kiddie utensils. My old one had a grinder/disposal so I didn't have to worry about food particles. This one you have to clean a filter about once a month. I hate cleaning appliances that are supposed to clean things. My old dishwasher had a delay with choices from 1 to 6 hours. This one has a delay, but only for 4 hours. Not really a problem, but I liked the choice. Some of the options I don't think I will ever use, I am a basic kind of girl. The two biggest things for me are that it seems to clean extremely well compared to my old one and it is unbelievably quite. Can't even tell that it is running. Actually thought we installed it wrong because it was so quiet. Hope this one gives me another 20 years!
Sears dropped the big box with this dishwasher off at our house...they would have left it outside, I think , if we didn't ask them specifically to bring it in the house. They told us nothing. I thought they would help install it or at least give us information as how to install it.My hubby had installed our last 3 dishwashers himself but it had been a while. He and my 18 y/o grandson got this machine installed but it took two long, very unhappy days and ruined my counter top...It still sticks out a couple inches because it was too deep for the space I had my other dishwashers in. I have now had it a few weeks and love it. It holds the same amount of dishes as my old machine but it is so much quieter and dishes get very clean. Regular wash takes 3 to 4 hours but the one hour wash does just as well in much less time. I like the button panel and choices. I tried the turbo wash twice and it got the back pans clean without hand scrubbing. I am still trying to figure out how to clean the filter. It was a great deal for a great machine but for heaven's sakes get someone to install it because Sears did nothing.
This unit is very quite but does not clean as well as my old kitchenaid.. the turbo washer does not do the job it is advertised to do.

So pleased with our new Kenmore dishwasher. Dishes and utencils come out so clean and spot-free. Appreciate the racks to load the silverware in so they each stand up straight and don't touch each other. Also like the special cleaning rack in the back of the washer for heavily soiled items.
We bought this dishwasher and have only had it for a few weeks. This dishwasher is very quiet and the dishes, silverware, glasses ALL come out spotless!! You will really enjoy this product. Thank you SEARS!
