Been using for a year
I bought this on Black Friday 2011 and have been using every day for a year. At the time I bought it, there were tons of reviews to rely upon. This is the best dishwasher I have ever owned. It has a lot of options, but we tend to just use the normal wash with no heat dry. Every now and then we use the turbo clean on pots and pans, but not often. Except for when the water fills, it is extremely quiet running, so we can run it anytime. The two filters are very fine mesh and very easy to unscrew, clean and screw back in. Whenever I feel the dishes are not as clean as possible, I rinse the filters and put them back in. I would buy it again. Having said that, there are just a few minor downsides. The controls being where they are, we are constantly accidently turning it on. There is a lock function, but we never get around to setting it. We just push clear and it turns off. The stainless steel is impossible to keep nice looking and the rollout dish holder racks are not smooth functioning.

OK
Replaced an Asko that I had had for 13 years. I was reluctant and rightly so. The Asko has racks that allow you to put plates and bowls very close together and still get very clean. The Kenmore is not set up very well to do that. A row of plates takes up most of the bottom section. The silverware basket with the individual slots is a pain. I will probably take those out. The door doesn't close smoothly and the rack rolls out awkwardly. The mechanism to adjust the upper rack up and down is not smooth either. It did get the dishes clean. It's also not as quiet as the Asko. However, the Asko customer service was horrible and I did have to have it repaired a number of times. I got the service agreement on the Kenmore, which is something I rarely do.
