This dishwasher has been a disaster. I've had for about a year and the heating element stopped working. It is as noisy as a jet aircraft. It smells absolutely awful when turned on initially. It has cost a fortune in water and power because I'm constantly cleaning it with vinegar and baking soda; to no avail. Without a doubt, this is the worst household appliance we've ever purchased from, period!. Don't buy this dishwasher!!!
I found the dishwasher runs for 3-4 hrs to complete a wash and dry. Interior does not get completely dry at the end of the drying cycle. I have to open the door to finish with air dry and it takes up to 2 days to completely dry. It is very quiet.
I purchased this dishwasher in October of 2013 from my local Sears store. Within a couple weeks of installation, I noticed water coming from the bottom side of the float. I called the Sears Service to schedule an appointment. I ran the dishwasher a few more time and the leak seemed to have stopped. I cancelled my appointment. We only run the dishwasher about once a week. About a month later, I noticed the dishwasher was leaking again. I scheduled another appointment. The first technician looked at the dishwasher and said he couldn't see it leaking, despite the fact I told him exactly where the problem was. After a short time, I scheduled another service call for the dishwasher leaking again. The customer service representatives who schedules these service calls have no idea about the mechanics of these appliances. They shipped me a new motor for leak. I called them back and told them the motor was fine and it was leaking from the bottom side of the float. After looking at the dishwasher diagram, I called the customer service rep. and requested them to mail a rubber washer, along with another part that could have been the problem with the float, prior to the service date. The service technician arrived for the second service call. He took the float apart and the rubber washer that was supposed to originally installed in the dishwasher wasn't there. He installed the rubber washer I had requested, and the problem seemed to be cleared up. Six months later the dishwasher has started leaking again. Unfortunately, despite my continuous problems with this dishwasher, Sears will not come and service the leak due to the fact my one year warranty ended 3 weeks ago. They tried to sale me an extended warranty that would cost almost just as much as a new dishwasher. This machine is a lemon and I would not recommend to anyone. You will be sadly disappointed You will end up with a leaky dishwasher that no one will take responsibility for and a puddle of water on your floor. I guarantee my next dishwasher will not be a Kenmore.
So far, I love this dishwasher. Seems to hold more dishes than my last dishwasher and runs fairly quiet.
I absolutely love this dishwasher, especially the turbo clean feature. Stainless steel tub wears well, and much quieter than my previous machine. Lots of adjustability in the racks to get even my most awkward shaped casserole dishes in.
Excellent product, quite
This item is MAGIC.
Got a great deal on this, does excellent job of cleaning, is much quieter than the unit it replaced. Really impressed by the Turbozone feature, tried it with a casserole dish left (purposely) overnight with baked on cheese. It passed that test with flying colors, came out completely clean and sparkling. Only had it a couple of weeks, but so far no complaints. I do wish the silverware basket was customizable instead of one long unit, as my previous one was, then it would be perfect.
