A basic no frills dishwasher that does the job.
I've read a few reviews about this dishwasher before I bought it. Even thought we could afford a more expensive dishwasher with all the bells and whistles, at the end of the day we asked the question, what do we need this dishwasher to do? Do we need it to walk the dog, take out the trash and sweep the floor? No, we just need it to wash the dishes we load up and that's about it. Do we need it to wash our most expensive dish and silverware and pots and pans. No, because we will always wash those by hands. We need to load the daily dishes, walk away, and forget about it until we come back to unload it. Now, if there was a dishwasher that unloaded itself and restock the dishes, well, that would be a no-brainer. I have washed my dishwasher safe pot and pans in it just fine. This is a dishwasher that washes dishes, period. It's basic. The racks are basic and holds breakfast and dinner dishes (including glassware) for four people nicely. Anything more than that then I would need a second load cycle. No problem, I've done it before. We have stainless steel appliances and while its not the 'prettiest' stainless steel appliance in the kitchen, it fits nicely under the cabinetry without drawing too much attention to itself. If anyone walked into my home and complained that my dishwasher wasn't as pretty as my fridge or stove, then I don't think that's a person I would want to have back in my kitchen. I've read in many reviews that the dishwasher is noisy. We have an open floor plan and the dishwasher is literally 27 feet away from the television. I've never had to turn the television up because the dishwasher is going and is to noisy. In fact, I'm watching television now and the dishwasher is going. I can barely hear it. To be honestly, I wouldn't hear it at all if I wasn't thinking about it. My dishwasher is under the cabinetry with a solid thick piece of granite counter-top and that may be a buffer for the sound. However, I do not experience a noise problem with this dishwasher. I'm writing this review after one month of ownership. I'll return in 6 months (if I remember) to give a follow-up.

Kenmore 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Item #02215114000P Model #15114
I purchased this item April 2014 and immediately notice the strange starting process. After filling with hot water (I make sure) it will cycle for 30-seconds, stop and immediately cycle for 30-seconds another three times, stopping and starting immediately and after the third cycle it is idle for 30-seconds. It then begins another three 30-second cycles stopping and starting immediately after the first two and when the third begins it continues the wash cycle unabated. I for one would not consider these supposedly unnecessary starts and stops being proper simply because of the ware and tare on the electrical parts. Every time a serge of electricity is sent to a motor or the power is terminated it simply cannot be a good thing. I think there is something seriously wrong with the information the memory module was programmed with and just how critical this is to the appliance's longevity overall is any-body's guess. I seriously doubt whether reporting this under warranty would be worthwhile so will wait another few months to see what happens with the motor.

decent for the price

I purchased this machine to replace a 15 year old Maytag. I am very satisfied with my purchase. I find this machine much quieter than my old machine. For now I'm only using the 1 hour wash and I don't use heated dry. When the cycle is complete, I open the door to let the steam out and air dry. I like the bottom rack, but the top rack doesn't hold as many dishes as my old machine. the spindles are not very efficient.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dishwasher

I bought this dishwasher for my fiancé a couple weeks ago, and she couldn't be more happier with it. It's very quiet, and just does great in general. Very happy with this product! And what was even better, it was in stock at the store. It's very easy to operate, it has the dual  agitators which gets the dishes  extraordinarily  clean!!! Very pleased with this product!!!!!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Dishwasher

I recently purchased this dishwasher for my elderly mother. I was looking for a basic dishwasher without a bunch of extra features (that may be confusing to my mom). This dishwasher was simple to install, looks nice, has all the necessary features, and seems to work great. This is just what she needed!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

just as good as I thought

I replaced a twenty five year old dishwasher with this one. The dishwasher arrived when it was scheduled and was easy to install. We have used it a few times since installing it. The dishwasher works fine. I would recommend this dishwasher to friends. Sears associate was a pleasure to do business with.

It labeled kenmore but that's all

Buyer beware, this machine is cheap from the ground up. Save your money this machine isn't worth it. I can do dishes myself quieter, better, and dry them faster by hand. Sears you let me down.

Kenmore 24" Bisque Dishwasher

Purchased to replace 10 year old Kenmore dishwasher. The old Kenmore was rusting out so we had to replace it. The new dishwasher takes much longer to run. does a poorer job of washing dishes and doesn't do a very good job of drying the dishes. We read the reviews about the change in dishwasher detergents and the amount of water that is used in the newer dishwashers but we thought we would get a better machine. Had I known, I probably would have rebuilt the old dishwasher and bought new dish racks instead of investing in a new unit.

Great value

This is a great value in a dishwasher. It has all of the features needed to effectively clean dishes, at a fraction of the cost (when On sale). The noise level is higher than the more expensive units due to the plastic tub, but if you are not sensitive to muffled noises in another room that shouldn't be a problem. Installation was a snap due to it's light weight.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not for me

I had a Maytag in the kitchen for 15 years. When it finally died, I was hoping to get an inexpensive replacement. Well, you get what you pay for. I have had this installed for less than a month, and I am shopping for another Maytag. - It cycles "weird"; seems to turn on and off for about 30 seconds in the first few minutes. - The dishes seem barely clean. Yes, they're clean (using Finish Max, they should be), but look as though they have a film on them when done. - The dry cycle does not work AT ALL. When dishes are done, I actually need to hand dry them. So if you have lots of dishes to wash by hand and a dishwasher is easier, this is fine. But if you're used to a dishwasher leaving dishes sparkling clean & completely dry, spend the extra money and get a different machine.

Wouldn't buy again

This dishwasher doesn't dry the dishes well, even with Jet Dry and after a year of use, started growing mold on top rack. I have to run dishwasher every month with bleach to kill mold. Won't buy Kenmore again, especially after their terrible customer service.

I especially love that people keep saying how quiet it is. It does a fabulous cleaning job and hasn't injured any dishes. So impressed with the bang we got for the small buck.

Not what I would consider a dishWASHER.

Our landlords replaced our broken 20-year old Bosch with this unit, and part of me wonders if repairing the Bosch would have been a better choice. First, it took a great deal of research and effort to do what I thought should have been simple: get the dishes clean. After experimenting with multiple soaps, rinse aids, boosters, dish positions, and dishwasher settings, I was finally able to get about half of the dishes clean. I really have to contribute the remaining fault to the dishwasher design. Silverware is typically hit and miss of whether the unit can successfully remove the residue. I can be flexible in that; however, I cannot be flexible about the complete and utter failure this dishwasher exhibits with top-rack cleaning. Mugs are left with residue inside, bowls emerge looking untouched; anything with a radius smaller than a good-sized cantaloupe dirty after a cycle 9/10 times. Ultimately, if you have anything that is designated "top rack only", spare yourself the grief and wash by hand. Truthfully, I wanted to give this dishwasher 1 star. But since half of it works (sort of), I gave it the 2. But honestly, if you're looking for a budget-friendly unit, stick to Craigslist and don't even bother with this. It lacks the ability to successfully do what it is supposed to.

It does the job.

This dishwasher was easy to install and does the job it claims to do. It is not good for stuck dried on food and pots. For everyday use it works. My biggest disappointment is how noisy it is. We just have to speed up the tv is all. Overall it was worth what we spent on it cause it does the job. You have to consider, of course we only had this dishwasher for about 11 days.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
