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.

Best Dishwasher we've ever owned

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.

"Great product for the price"

I bought this item as a gift to my parents and they absolutely love it. It's easy to install. The usage instructions is easy to follow. It runs very quiet. The dish rack rollers roll all the way out so it's easy to load the dishes. They absolutely love it and the price is just right for a good product like this.

Big disappointment

If you actually expect a dishwasher to wash dishes then get something different. I rinse my dishes before I put them in the washer but they come out covered with some kind of disgusting film. I even made sure to use the exact dish soap and rinse agent that was recommended

Do not buy!!!

Wanted to just get something inexpensive because all my Kenmore's have been worthless! I purchased this and in less than a month a part literally fell off the unit (holds the door in place). They ordered the part and came out to fix on 3 different occations this happened!!! It happened again the other day; it's out of warranty now. Also within the first 6 months the dish racks both started rusting! What garbage! It might be inexpensive but thats NO excuse Sears/Kenmore! My over $$$ Expensive Elite dishwasher unit was trash too!

Keeps getting better

I purchased this dishwasher to replace a Kenmoor that had given years of solid use. As an entry level appliance it still has all the features you want and it was clear the design has improved over the years. Salesman was very knowledgeable and was got me exactly what I needed.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worst piece of junk I have ever bought

Will not clean any type of dishes. I bought this to replace a cheap Kenmore I bought in 2004 that was a great dishwasher. I expected this one to be a good one but it is just a waste of space. Glass comes out like they were never washed. Plates are dirty when removed and silverware is still dirty after cleaning. I have tried to use this for 6 months but have given up on it. I am going to pull it out, throw it in the trash and go some here else and buy one that will work. It doesn't matter what type of soap or if you use the rinse agent or run it for the full wash cycle or the 1 hour cycle. Very dissapointed in Sears and this product.
