I bought this dishwasher in July 2013. I love it so much I am buying it again for my vacation home. It is so quiet, fits tons of dishes in it and was easy to install. Me (divorced Mom) and my 20 yr old son did it ourselves with no problems. You can't beat the price for this machine.
Great dishwasher, but very difficult to install...the required "3 foot cord" purchase was a waste, as we needed to purchase a longer one, I called the store and they were not helpful, and the brackets and screws to mount this into the space were also unless and we had to make something else work...4-5 installation and not to mention that a critical electrical part was missing and it also had to be replaced by us.
We didn't actually want a Kenmore, we wanted whirlpool, but after talking to the ONLY friendly associate in our local store we decided to completely change our mind (and business from ***** to sears) and go with Kenmore. This dishwasher is so quiet that it sounds like gently boiling water, in fact I keep having to check the stove because I keep forgetting it's the dishwasher! The turbo feature is awesome. the only downside is, it does NOT have a top rack only wash, but other than that it is AMAZING.
I love this dishwasher! It is so super quiet! We couldn't wait to wash our first load of dish's as our old one had been broken for weeks so we actually LOOKED for dish's to wash. It honestly is as quiet as water boiling when it's running, actually it sounds just like it that I keep checking the stove thinking I'm boiling something!
I would avoid this dishwasher. Shortly after the 1 year warranty expired it started leaking out the motor shaft. I took it apart looking for a bad seal and it is clear it is made out of cheap materials. Look elsewhere for a dishwasher if you want a quality product. Now I know why the local Sears store where I bought it closed.
We can only compare this to the one in the apartment we lived in, or the one from 1999 that was already in the house when we bought it. Both of those were LOUD, retched machines, which spit food back up onto the tops of dishes. Anyhow, this one is super quiet in comparison, though I am quite sure the models a step up into the "Elite" category are quieter yet. We installed it ourselves, very easily, and though it is the same size as our last, old dishwasher, the tub is MUCH roomier, accommodating many more tall items, and more quantity-wise also. Hoorah! The tub is also steel, so that is awesome. Easier to clean, I feel. Though I'm so enamoured, I'm not bothering to shove food-covered dishes into the washer to test that. My ONLY complaint is the middle row of the top rack: Glasses fit great onto EVERY row EXCEPT the middle one. It's big and weird and no fitted grooves or anything to keep things steady, so if you put a glass in, then close or open the dishwasher, the dang things topple right over. It's kinda **** set up, but the rest of the washer is so darn good, I'll still 5 star it!
This dishwasher was easy to install and works beyond my expectations. It's very quite, uses less water than my old one but it was 27 years old!! Haven't had a chance/need to use the Turbo Zone. I use the 1 hr wash and haven't had anything I put in, come out dirty! A few plastic things are wet but nothing a quick towel doesn't cure. You will be more than satisfied with this dishwasher.
Very quiet which is a big plus since we have an open floor plan - kitchen and great room. Looks nice and like not having a handle. Has the feature of letting you now when the load is complete. Lets you choose heated dry, high temp wash and sanitize. Very satisfied and would recommend to friends and family.
I bought this model for my 85 year old mother when her old one died. While it is overkill for her, I wanted her to have a nice stainless steel interior. While it is a very nice machine with lots of features and cleans well, it has two flaws. One, the door is very hard to open....you have to really tug on it, with no release clamp in the handle. Two, it leaves a lot of moisture on the inside. True, its manual says to use "rinse aid", but that shouldn't be needed this much! I returned it for a cheaper model with an easy to open door. Thankfully, Sears was very cooperative.

My 25+ yr old dishes look and feel just like new! The new dishwasher is so quiet you hardly even know it is on. (I used to wait to run the old one when I went to bed because I couldn't hear the TV with the dishwasher running) I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend it.
While this is a good choice overall, you should bear a few things in mind. For instance, while the picture on the website shows the vent on the left front, the one we got has it on the upper left side of the door, which means steam is vented directly onto the adjoining cabinet. For that reason, the installer suggested I brush some sealer onto the cabinet face to protect it from moisture. I opted instead to install a plastic corner guard, which seems to be doing the trick. Second, there's no actual handle, and you accordingly have to pull on a cutout in the control panel to open the dishwasher, which tends to flex the panel somewhat. Although most of the cycles are admittedly long as is the case with all energy saver dishwashers these days, I've found that the one hour wash coupled with the heated dry option is more than adequate to clean the dishes. Give it a try yourself and see what you think. With the drying option, the whole process takes about an hour and a half.
We purchased this to replace a cheaper maytag, primarily because we wanted one with a stainless steel interior. At only $467 on sale, this is one of the cheapest we ever saw with a full stainless interior. It is full featured, very quiet, and cleans excellently. Haven't had it long so we can't vouch for the longevity, but very good so far.
We just got it installed a week ago. The installers were on time and had it hooked up in less than half an hour. It works great we have used it twice a day since we got it and the dishes come out spotless. It is also really quiet, you have to stand right next to it to know it is running

This dishwasher looks great, is reasonably quiet and does an excellent job of cleaning dishes. I find it easy to load everything; it holds lots of stuff. I haven't used the turbozone feature yet but I'm sure it will come in handy. It's very attractive and so far works very well.
We purchased this dishwasher in May, 2013. I love this dishwasher. I have to admit, we were initially hesitant about purchasing this dishwasher because of the reviews that talked about how loud the dishwasher is. I'm glad we went ahead and purchased it. Here's the deal... I LOVE: * dishwasher is quiet - you can barely hear it if you aren't standing right next to the machine * racks adjust for size of dishes - you can quickly and easily adjust the racks when you need more space for big pots or even punch bowls I DON'T LOVE: * drying - you have to KEEP the JetDry dispenser full or your dishes won't completely dry. Even then, your dishes won't always completely dry. * cleaning - I put a frying pan that had grease in it in the dishwasher and was rewarded with grease all over the inside of the dishwasher and on all the dishes that were in the load * cleaning the dishwasher - you have to physically get in and scrub the dishwasher (especially the corners) to clean it. NONE of my "don't love" issues are anything that makes me wish we had purchased a different dishwasher. Overall, I love this dishwasher and highly recommend it!
I gave it 5 stars because I don't have anything bad to say at this point. My husband said that installation was pretty easy. It's soooo quiet compared to my last dishwasher so I love that about it. It looks good and has done a great job too. I really like the size of the utensil compartment, I end up having a lot and this holds everything very well.
