I looked several places before coming back to sears. Great customer service. Very friendly staff. Helpful and informative. Delivery was faster than expected. I have had this dishwasher for about a month and I am pleased with how it operates and cleans. Pretty quiet.
This dishwasher replaces a Whirlpool. We have a large family, so our dishwasher gets a great deal of use. This new dishwasher cleans the dishes, has flexibility in loading (large or unusual size pots or dishes), and is exceptionally quiet. We can stand next to the dishwasher, and not hear it running. One negative: the magnet that holds the door closed is very strong. You need to tug very hard to open it, which flexes the control panel -- I'm not sure if that's going to be a problem over time. We're very happy with the Sears installation service -- professional and efficient. They arrived almost exactly when they said they would.
uses less water than my last Kenmore
We were not sure how old our diahwasher was since it was in the house when we moved in 15 yrs. ago. It was extremely loud when it was running. This new dishwasher is so quiet you can hardly tell it is on. The capacity is larger the our previous one. I probably won't use the turbozone that often, but it will come in handy for the casseroles that have burned on food.
It is quite, efficient, and holds more than our old washer. Great selection of features and does a great job. Would recommend to anyone. Do yourself a favor if you buy one. Get the hose install kit. It makes instillation a whole lot easier.
This is truly a great dishwasher. I previously had a very expensive ASKO dishwasher made in Sweden. It lasted 6 years and had multiple issues in its life. After walking into my grandparents home and seeing they only bought Kenmore appliances I decided to give the brand a try. This dishwasher is great, its quieter than my last one, about half the price, and the dishes look amazing afterwards. Plus, you can easily add a dish to the cycle, it features a 1 hour wash cycle which is great for entertaining as it gets a load of dishes done between the main course and dessert, something we used today and it worked wonderfully. Whirlpool manufacturers this and markets it as Kenmore. Buying the Kenmore brand means you get a lot of extra features, like the turbo zone for cleaning heavily soiled dishes and adjustable racks on the top level. The comparable Whirlpool did not have those features. Because Sears has Whirlpool make this and they buy in bulk, those features are unique to Kenmore and Sears hopes it draws consumers to the brand. At least thats what the salesperson said. I had the dishwasher installed, which as another reviewer said cut out the sales tax in PA, not sure for other states. Intallers went above and beyond with the hookup but I had to adjust the mounting after they left because it was far from level in all directions. Small issue that was an easy fix but required two additional holes drilled into my cabinets that aren't visible. That was my only pet peeve. I have since convinced my parents to buy the comparable dishwasher and may have talked someone else into one today. I should work at Sears. Anyway, this is a good pick and got higher ratings than most of the Kenmore Elite dishwashers. I got this during the Memorial Day sale and saved a bundle. I will be replacing all my appliances with Kenmore as they break! One more thing, I'm not certain but I think this dishwasher is made in either Canada or USA, NOT China which is a huge plus in my book.
The machine looks very good in the Kitchen and enhances the over all stainless steel look of the other appliances. The sales staff was very helpful and worked thru all of the paper work problems from not updated my account info on the internet.
This dishwasher kenmore dishwasher so far seems like a good value for what I paid. ($444.99 plus tax). There were some issues with delivery and installation and it initially leaked because the parts shipped were not properly tightened but after that got fixed we have not had any issues. It is attractive enough and has a versatile top rack that makes it easier to load if there are taller dishes. The glass rack that can stabilize the wine glasses is also nice. The inside is stainless steel. (I would not purchase a dishwasher with plastic insides). It is very quiet if you stack it well however if you do not stack it well and if you put pots in it then it can be very noisy. The dishes and silverware are very clean and do not spot as long as you also use the Jet rinse additive. Heavily soiled pots and pans to not get clean so don't expect miracles. Overall it seems like a good product / value for the price.
So quiet you can't hear it filling or running. Tried the turbo zone for the first time last night and the dish came out perfectly clean.
