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.
Quiet, efficient, inexpensive - great value!
Does a great job getting our dishes clean, can't beat the value!
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.
Good while it lasted--for me only 1.5 years.
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!!
