basic dishwasher and who needs more unless you have $$ u just need to get rid of. only used once so far, its quiet cleaned great - husband installed, even less $$ spent, so happy wife!!!
We are very disappointed with this machine! We carefully reviewed the different models from different stores and decided on this unit. Boy did I blow it! I have limited mobility and purchased this unit on-line. It doesn't clean the dishes! We have to wash or rinse every single plate, bowl, or utensil we put in it. When they all come out after going through the wash cycle, they are rough and scratchy. We have used three different cleaning and rinsing agents with the machine and have the same result with them all. What a disappointment! Come on Sears!
The panel on our last Kenmore dishwasher went bad. To have it replaced would have been $250, and the white panel wasn't available so it would have been a black panel on a white dishwasher. The repairman recommended buying the cheapest dishwasher because none of them are built to last anyway. This was the cheapest at.$279.99. We've only used it a couple times. The Normal Wash setting takes forever, well about 2 hours, which is about double the time of our last dishwasher. There is a one hour wash option that we haven't tried yet. I'm also disappointed that dishes have to be scraped/rinsed before being washed in the dishwasher. I think that defeats the efficiency of using a dishwasher. Rising/scraping wasn't necessary with our last dishwasher. On top of that, not everything came out perfectly clean, so that was disappointing. Maybe it wasn't rinsed enough. So, overall, I give it a fair rating because it will probably do the basic job, but it takes a long time and requires more effort from me.

I just wanted a good appliance that would get my dishes and flatware clean and not cost too much money. I chose Kenmore because I have a Kenmore washer/dryer and fridge and love them all. This dishwasher is much quieter than my old one and I like the fact that is doesn't flip top rack items over so they can fill up with water. I've had the machine for over a month and so far so good. I am very happy.
I was looking for an efficient dishwasher for an apartment. Came acrsoss this one and decided to give it a try. So far the tennants say it has been working very well and is much quieter than they thought it would be.

Perfect machine for apartment living. Right size and right color but most importantly right price. I would suggest this unit to any property manager that is looking to do mass replacements.
What can a person say about a dishwasher especially one that works!!! It is neat and efficient. Fits under our counter top and looks nice.So simple that a 10 year old can figure out how to start .. Now if only she can figure out how to load and unload!!

This is a no frills basic dishwasher. I've done expensive, I've done fancy, those dishwashers failed miserably so I just decided to find a good quality basic machine an this is it. Very pleased.

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.
I do not cook that much, but I needed a new dishwasher because the old one stopped working. I wanted something reasonably priced that did the job, and so far I am very happy so far with this dishwasher. I spent weeks looking for the "right" one that wasn't over $500, and I felt better when my installer said that Kenmore is great and that she has had to replace many Bosch's. She said they are over-priced and not very good. I just purchased this machine, but I am confident I got a good deal. I especially like that it has a heat-dry option and has a NSF sanitizer mode. I would recommend waiting until it goes on sale:)
This was recently purchased to replace an old one. It pretty simple and modern looking. I got black and it goes great with all my other appliances. I recommend this to anyone.

It is a white kenmore dishwasher. I am very satisfied with it. It has a lot of room for dishes, silverware and glassware. It has a short efficient washing cycle with very hot sanitizing rinse and steam.
This dishwasher was very easy to install. It cleans our dishes very well as long as you rinse them off good before you put them in. It is a little noise when washing. it is very simple in operation just push what setting you want and go love it.
