Top rack coats glassware with milky film. Flatware comes out streaked and spotted. Bottom rack cleans unevenly and leaves dishes damp. Have tried several settings and several detergents. Nothing works. Dishes never get clean. Had to stop using it. Too many problems. Am considering exchange for a different make and model.

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.

This Kenmore seemed like a good machine for a great low-price. So far it's done absolutely great! No complaints whatsoever. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because we've only had it for about a week. I don't know how it will do long term.

my husband and I replaced our 10 month old frigidaire kitchen for a Kenmore kitchen and couldnt be happier. They cost us the same and the Kenmore are much better. This dishwasher washes so much better than its frigidaire equivalent, and it's significantly faster and quieter. Happy happy happy.

this dishwasher is very easy to install. it has multi functions. is quieter than other models, has a clean look, etc. this model is what I use for rentals, but is extremely good for homeowners also. cant really beat the price with the quality.

I was looking to replace my 11 year old "basic" GE dishwasher that did a great job but broke. I started looking at Bosch but don't like their "condensation" drying method. Then I looked at Kenmore Elite but those were very expensive. I thought, why do I need an expensive dishwasher? My old GE was very noisy but do I need to spend that much just for less noise? I think they all clean about the same right? I decided the money wasn't worth it and settled on this unit and now I'm very glad I did since it is MUCH quieter than my old GE and does a great job cleaning. It might not be as quiet as the high-end models but it is NOT very noisy at all and you can't beat the price. I think you can't go wrong getting this unit but that's just my opinion.
This Kenmore dishwasher is considered the basic model. However, I was surprised by the design with 2 rotating blades on the top and bottom for a cleaner outcome. It is quiet and suits the needs for the 3 adults in our home. I ordered this online while at work on a busy day. My plumber picked it up. All went so smoothly and efficiently. It took me about 5 minutes to complete the order at work. When I arrived home, everything was installed and ready to go!
while I was mostly satisfied with it (It?s so quiet!), it sometimes seemed to be lacking in its ability to fully clean the dishes. I?d have to rewash or rinse them by hand, defeating the whole purpose in having a dishwasher.Now I think this dishwasher is total garbage. Constant film, dried on food particles, long wash cycles. when the repairman came out he said this means the dishwasher isn't getting enough hot water at the beginning the repairman said it was just due to the terribly hard water building up .....

Even when new, this unit did not fully dry anything and was the loudest dishwasher we've owned. After 2 years, the dishes weren't getting clean, and by three years... the bottom spinner quit. It would turn easily by hand and water was jetting, but not spinning. This is a case of you get what you pay for. Bought 4 kenmore appliances and every one has a major problem within 6-12 months.
