Love this dishwasher!

It works great and came with everything I needed to hook up to my faucet! It rolls very easily. It also heat dries very well, unlike most portable dishwashers. I really love the countertop on it as well. I'm very happy with this product.

Don't get it and don't use Sears anymore

Don't get this machine, it is awful. I have the generation of this machine before this one and it was pretty good, in fact very good. I had it for about 8 years with very minor problems, twice the fuse went out for the front panel. No big deal to replace. It dried well and washed dishes great. So I got this machine thinking it would be the same if not better. OMG much worse. It cleans the dishes ok, almost as good as the other one but not quite. It does not dry the dishes at all. And from what I see that is to make it more environmentally friendly. That is livable, I guess. But the worst thing is that it got clogged twice in the 13 months I had it. The first time it was still covered, they came over and it is really hard to take the hose out to unclog if that is what you want to do. They were not wanting to do that but through bending the hosing spending like an hour doing that, it unclogged. Then at 13 months it happened again. Now the old machine never got clogged, I had the same habits then as now. This new machine has a filter, what? A filter that supposedly is to catch stuff to make it not clog, the old machine didn't have this. Awful, obviously does not work and even what is worse, that the old one didn't clog at all without this removable filter. This happened a second time at 13 months after the warranty. Sears call centers, which are all in the Philippines, was just bureaucratic about the whole thing. Of course, they were doing their job but there is no rational person anywhere willing to discuss this lemon of a machine. So, I have used Sears for so many years and Kenmore and they are willing to lose my future business, which would be a lot of future business. I just bought a Kenmore refrigerator a couple of months ago and need a new stove. They are willing to lose me as a customer and thousands of additional dollars over this thing which could be easily solved. Either they could have offered to come fix it for free, which really is not that great an offer because the machine sucks, or they could offer me like a $200 discount for a new machine to buy at Sears. But, it is impossible to get any deal because there are all call centers in the Philipines and why would they care. So, they lost my business. I will not use Sears ever again for the rest of my life.

Still making the best appliances around


We have a portable dishwasher as we have vintage solid wood - actual solid wood! - cabinets and do not want to mutilate them to install a built-in. This is our third (maybe fourth?) Kenmore portable dishwasher in this house which we've owned since 1970, so these puppies are built to last. This latest model is the quietest ever, I kept checking it the first time I ran it to see if it was actually running. It was, it's just very quiet. There's plenty of room inside, a range of settings including a quick wash cycle and a sanitation setting which would be great if you are washing baby bottles, or have someone at home with a compromised immune system from cancer or a transplant or etc. One of the best parts of having a portable is the extra counter space it gives you. Also, the cat loves to lay on it during the drying cycle when it gets nice and warm, so it doubles as a cat bed. You just can't beat a Sears appliance.

Great for a single apartment. It fits like a glove between my stove and fridge. I set it up myself and it works great. It's given me a lot of time back from washing up after meals. I wish the caster wheels were higher quality because I have tile floors, otherwise it works well. I also wish it had a more attractive top that I could use as a cutting board. Set up and use are fabulous.

I haven't tried my dishwasher yet. Its still in the box in my kitchen along with my old dishwasher. I paid to have the old dishwasher removed but its still here. My new one was delivered to me on Nov 9th 2021, I have been calling but all I keep getting is apologies and someone will be in touch with me. I haven't from you since. Thank you for ruining my Thanksgiving and Christmas. P.S. I want a refund.

Kenmore Portable Dishwasher wins the prize!


My Kenmore 24" Portable Dishwasher works great! I wanted a Kenmore because the one I was replacing was a Kenmore that lasted 15 years.
