We started out with a used dishwasher and it turned out to be such a pain to install, then it leaked and the door was bent. We ran out of time and had to call the plumber to finish the project. After all day and spending $165 on the plumber, all we had was a broken, old dishwasher. The plumber said we could just go buy a cheap dishwasher for not much more than we spent on the used one and have something that we know actually will work. So we went and bought the cheapest thing we could find. I was disappointed at having to buy cheap because I needed some heavy duty cleaning. We installed the machine with ease, then started washing dishes. I have been amazed at the cleaning quality of such a cheap machine. Wish other dishwashers I had a whole list of things I couldn't put in the dishwasher if they had been used on certain kinds of food because they would never get clean. After about 10 loads with this dishwasher absolutely everything has come out clean! Even the things that previously would never get clean in my dishwashers. This dishwasher definitely gives you better quality than the price suggests.
I have had the machine for about 2 years, then it died. I was told that the control board burned out. When it did work however the dishwasher worked fine and it cleaned dishes very well. The repair man told me that it could be that the motor was overloading the board causing it to go out. The repair would be about $400 when the machine is only worth $300.
Dishwasher is light enough for one person to lift. Has newer hose type water fitting, you'll need an adapter. Drain hose is included to connect to disposal. Electrical box required nut or torx. Overall easy installation and works as expected. Insulation on unit is for sound dampening, do not discard.
I don't remember the last time I reviewed an item, but I decided to make an exception. I purchased this dishwasher in May 2015, and it was installed when our kitchen renovations were complete in August 2015. After less than FOUR months of use, the water valve broke... no water = no dish washing. As if that weren't enough, then the dispenser broke. So, now... no cleaning agent = wet, but not clean, dishes. I have made purchases in the past that have left me disappointed; I'm sure most people have. But I have NEVER purchased a major appliance that broke after about 30 uses. I won't even go into the headache of dealing with Sears Home Services and the associated manufacturers' warranty. Your time and money are precious - DO NOT BUY THIS APPLIANCE.
does not dry dishes, bought kenmore dryer does not dry clothes, one more strike kenmore and you are out
Broke in October this year no warranty, my bad, I guess. I tore up my sears credit card and will never buy another product from Sears. Well to tell you a little more about the problem it has, will not go into a wash cycle, it just clicks and drains all day long.
After 8 days I have determined this is one of the worst items I have ever purchahed. Does not clean well and does not dry well. I might as well disconnect it, use it for storing stuff and wash and dry the dishes by hand. This is the Kenmore that can't. Repeat after me: NO MORE KENMORE! NO MORE KENMORE! NO MORE KENMORE!
Perfect for my rental unit. It performs well and is at a great price point.
dish washer is nice. bout would have been even a better purchase had the sales person told me of all the parts I needed to properly install the machine instead of finding out when i got it home what additional things I needed to get.
