A basic no frills dishwasher that does the job.
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.

not built to last
We purchased this item less than 2 years ago, about a month ago dishes on top stopped getting clean, we realized that the top water sprayer was not turning, now the bottom isn't cleaning either, we were going to call for a repair, but decided that Kenmore just isn't cutting it any more, in the last ten years and less we have had to replace all our Kenmore products, in 2-5 years.
