Great Dishwasher

Fantastic job on cleaning and drying. Super quiet and easy to load and unload. The 3rd rack is a life saver on food processing blades and components. Handles a large load with no issues and pots and pans come out sparkling.

Terrible disappointed

I was very excited to use my new dishwasher on Christmas Eve. Went on vacay Xmas morn and returned a week later to dirty dishes and a bit of mold. Not occurring to me that the dishwasher was faulty, I ran it again. The dishes were still not clean, after a third time, I had to do them by hand. My salesperson, who I had thought the world of, responded with indifference and did not even apologize that the unit was not working properly. In order to return, I will need to pay a restocking fee. The Samsung I decided to get was on sale, however when a Sears representative called me, the exchange would be based on the full price, they would not give me the sale price....frustrated, I decided to use the protection policy that I purchased but they will not send out a tech since the unit “works”.

Love it!


I love my new dishwasher! After the crummy dishwasher that I put up with for several years, this one makes me want to do a happy dance every time I open it and see the sparkling clean dishes! No longer do I have to scrub the dried food off before loading the dishwasher. And it’s so quiet that sometimes I have to look at the indicator light to know that it’s actually running. I also love the 3rd rack. This dishwasher makes me smile every day, and we got it for a great price. Thank you Sears!

I love this product


Beside it being the best because it’s a Kenmore, it is literally inaudible when standing right next to it!  I forgot it was on and accidentally opened it to put more dishes in it.  In addition to it being the quietest dishwasher I can remember owning, it looks sleek, the controls are intuitive, the filters are easy to remove and clean, the racks seem overly sturdy and the stainless tub rocks!
I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love this!


I finally replaced the original d/w in my home, and I am in love! This unit is super quiet! The removeable third rack and adjustable middle rack offer lots of versatility. Sears installed it in 45 minutes. Great product and overall excellent experience!
