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.

I HATE THIS DISHWASHER
This dishwasher does not hold enough dishes to worry about washing. My previous dishwasher (a Maytag) could hold large cookie sheets on the sides of the bottom, but this one is too low between racks. If I fill the bottom with plates, then slide the rack in, all the plates fall forward against each other making it impossible to clean them, So I have to reach in and stand them up again. My dessert bowls or small salad bowls do not fit conveniently, and I can only get about 4 of them in the dishwasher in the space that should hold 10 or 12. The glasses in the top rack keep falling over, and do not fit nicely in the place they should go. There is very little flatware space. The designated places to hold individual forks or spoons are too narrow for the handles of my flatware, and my flatware handles are not unusually wide. Don't waste time on the Turbo Jet Feature. When you set something back there, you lose space where other things could go. And it takes several hours to wash using the turbo jet setting. I only use the one-hour wash because I dont have time for a 4-hour wash since the other half of the dishes are waiting their turn. The one hour wash is not energy efficient but I just cant do this all night long. This machine will not hold a 9 x 13 baking pan standing on the side because the space is only about an inch and a half instead of two inches. I did not have high blood pressure until I bought this piece of junk. Skip it get a Maytag with a big basket.

Good Product

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Dishwasher

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.

dishwasher review

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

LOVE this dishwasher.

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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!

Great Washer!!!!

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!!!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.

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.

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!

Very pleased!!

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.

Stay Away!!!!!!!!!!

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!!!
