Nice but a few things to remember

Very quiet and cleans well, we only had 2 issues. 1. Anchoring it to the side cabinets is very tough to secure. 2. Don't touch the front stainless steel easily smudges. if you just use the handle it's pretty much clean. Tip, do nit sit flush to cabinets you must keep it out about an inch due to the heat vent that's on the left side of the door or it will ruin the wood over time.

Criticism

Broke in the first month and Leaked

I used this machine less than 5 times and the dishwasher leaked all over my floor. The installation company broke my pipe upon installation on the first visit. They hit a pipe and cracked it with their wrench causing a crack and slow leak. Then the dishwasher leaked and when the installer came to change it out they said the timing/ motor mechanism breaks and they see it all the time. The installation company and delivery companies are different and they do not coordinate delivery on the same day. Awful experience all around. No one will call you back from customer service. Stay away from Sears.

Loved it until it broke...

|

We purchased this 18 months ago and loved that it was quiet and seemed to clean the dishes well. Recently it started to not dry the dishes, and sometimes they didn't seem clean. The technician came out today and said the motor needs to be replaced, which will cost almost $500. Sounds like this is a common problem. I expect such an expensive appliance to last longer than this and will purchase another brand!!

Waste of money

|

Item tore up within 4 months of purchase. The motor had to be replaced then a year and half later went out again. Sears repair man said to just buy a new one not to waste money on their nicer appliances because they do not last over a year or two. The stainless Steele looked horrible within a month of purchase. I would purchase from another establishment and definitely not this product.

Only lasts two years

|

Piece of junk. Motor and pump went out after two years. Three weeks after the warranty expired. Recommended to just replace entire washer as repair on that part is really expensive and not always reliable.  Good other than that. Just spend the extra cash on the long coverage warranty.

So quiet...can barely hear it in the same room! Large capacity and adjustable top rack make it very versatile. No issues with dishes not coming out clean. I really like the controls being on top of the door, too.

Great Looking & Great Washing

|

It was fairly easy to install (replacement), but instructions could have been a little better. Couldn't figure out how to secure the bottom front on each side, but still felt secure with just the top screws.

Bad service

|

Purchased this dishwasher Aug 23, 2017, paid to have installed on the 25th. My wife tried to wash the dishes on the 26th. The soap fell to the bottom of the floor and never cleaned the dishes. I believe that water is not coming into the washer. Possible broken pump. The water lines are on. We have ran the dishwasher in 3 different cycles to try and get it to work. We have called the installers, but they will not answer the phone or call us back. I have been on the phone several times with Sears and talk to one out-of-the-country person after another. They barely speak English and keep transferring me to more foreign people who can't seem to get a person out to our home to fix our brand new dishwasher that I spent $650 on. I see why Sears is struggling to keep stores open. Help from Arlington, TN.
