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 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!

Very satisfied


I just had my dishwasher installed a couple of days ago, and ran it for the first time that night. I selected the Smart Wash cycle and went to bed without hearing so much as a whisper from the dishwasher. It did an excellent job on a baking dish with encrusted food, and the third rack at the top handled flatware well. Only complaint was the amount of food debris in the filter.

Excellent dishwasher


The top small shelf rack is a huge bonus! It's great for those things items that seem not to fit elsewhere. It's very clean and relatively quiet. The dishes come out very clean.

Top quality and pricing


Replaced old Kenmore that came with house. Looked at other brands and features. This unit is easy to install, quiet, and does a great job. Would purchase again.

Frustrated and disappointed


We had our unit delivered in January 2018 after searching for appliances for our home. We trusted the Kenmore Elite name and purchased the entire kitchen suite along with a new washer & dryer. Our dishwasher worked great (all functions/modes) for the first five months, then broke just prior to Memorial Day. LONG story short, we have now had five appointments, three different replaced parts, and now a sixth appointment scheduled because our dishwasher will not heat to dry dishes. Sears insists on continuing to “fix” this unit instead of calling it a lemon and either replace or give us our money back. At this point, Kenmore is no longer a brand I would recommend. Product works great when it works, but SERVICE is extremely poor. Two months w/o a dishwasher is such an inconvenience when our family typically runs it daily. How many times must we endure taking off of work to wait for a repair just to not have a solution - frustrating.
