Review:
"Ultra Wash Dishwasher"
Dishwasher is less than 6 months old and the wheels that hold the upper rack have already broken and fallen off. The little plastic tabs that hold the wheels on snapped off. The dishwasher itself worked fine before this happened. It was quiet and cleaned the dishes well. It was hard to tell when the dishes were done because the display is tucked under the edge of the counter. Also, you have to hit the start button twice to start the dishwasher. The normal dish washing cycle also takes a couple of hours because of the drying cycle. I could live with all of these faults except the problem with the wheels! There is no excuse for the plastic part that holds the wheels to be made so poorly. I would not recommend buying this dishwasher.

"A Dishwasher That Does The Job But Costs A Lot To Use"
We bought our current Kenmore dishwasher about 8 years ago and have been basically happy with it. It has a lot of great features on it, such as a Smartwash option that apparently judges the dirtiness of the water and cleans accordingly. It has a sensor to detect the temperature of the water, to make sure the dishes are getting effectively cleaned, and it's a dishwasher that doesn't require you to wash your dishes before you load them in the dishwasher. It has a "grinding" ability in the bottom that will take care of small pieces of food and residue from the dishes, and send it out like a garbage disposal does. It is fairly quiet, unlike our old dishwasher that sounded like it was about to take off. The dishes come out really clean, considering we have extremely hard water. A hard water spot removing agent, like Jet Dry, in the dispenser usually takes care of that. My complaints are that this dishwasher takes FOREVER to clean the dishes. A full load can take up to 80 minutes to complete, which means a huge amount of hot water is being used, and so our gas bill really went up after we bought this dishwasher. Two prongs in the upper shelf have broken off, and I'm not sure why. Maybe they got too hot. We haven't had to have any repairs on it yet, and hopefully we won't need to. I would probably buy this same brand again and recommend it to a friend, but I would love to find one that is faster and more efficient with hot water use and can save us on our energy bills. I'd also like to see one with sturdier shelving and prongs to hold the dishes. Overall, it's been a good dishwasher.

"Good dishwasher for the price"
We have owned our dishwasher for two years now. I like the fact that it has a mode for pots and pans and also a heat sanitizing mode. It makes me feel that it really gets my dishes clean. This dishwasher is very loud at certain parts of the cycles. Already we have had to replace the spray arm at the top because it melted and broke off. This part has been very hard for us to find and therefore we still don't have one. I would recommend this dishwasher to a friend if they were needing something quickly or just to have one to put up for sale. This dishwasher works to fulfill our daily needs, but it is not a long-term solution for us. Some of Kenmore's other models might be a better value for the money than this one has been, but all-in-all this dishwasher is not that bad.

"Kenmore Dishwashers are Great Products"
Two years ago I purchased my Kenmore Stainless Steel Dishwasher. It has been doing a great job ever since. I have to say that I love pretty much everything about it. It is very spacious, quiet, and also easy to use. I was really surprised on how quiet it was being that the price was so affordable. If I had to pick something I don't like about it I would have to say I don't like the settings on it. Most dishwashers have many more settings than this model. I would want another gentle cycle besides the one it has. I think the gentle cycle is a bit harsher than the competing brands. I have had nothing go wrong with my dishwasher. I would buy this again if I had to redo it. I would also recommend to all of my friends as well. Overall, this is a great, affordable dishwasher.

"Kenmore has the best Built-In Dishwasher ever"
I bought it 8 months ago,it's the best. I like 360 deg. Power-Wash technology features. I dislike one thing about it which sometimes it leaves the glasses cloudy. I never replaced it or repair it. Of course, I would recommend it to a friend because I used to have an old model of Kenmore dishwashers.

"The best dishwasher I ever owned!"
I have owned this dishwasher for over a couple months now. Things I like about it is that it has a built in food disposal and cleans dishes very well. Things I dislike are that it is only heated drying and does not have no gentle wash cycle. I have never had to repair or replace it yet. I would recommend it to a friend.

"Kenmore Dishwasher is Perfect"
I have owned my Kenmore dishwasher for over five years and I have never had a problem with it. I love how spacious the dishwasher is in general. I haven't ever had a problem with not being able to fit all of my dishes in to it, no matter how many guests I have had over at my home. I also like how quiet the dishwasher is when it runs. I have known other people whom have extremely loud dishwashers, but I do not even notice when mine is running. The only thing that I have found that I do dislike over the years is that I wish there was more room for the silverware on the bottom rack. In five years I have not ever had to repair it or replace any of the parts. If I were to ever need to purchase another dishwasher, I would definitely purchase another Kenmore and I have recommended it to several of my friends.

"Dishwasher: Efficient or Bust?"
I purchased my Kenmore dishwasher about 8 months ago. The dishwasher was very easy to install. I have very little experience with any kind of plumbing or electric installation, but the directions were very detailed and yet simple enough to guide me through the entire process. The dishwasher meets all of my expectations and more. When it runs, it is very quiet and doesn't make a loud commotion that disturbs my family when we watch TV in the next room. The dishwasher I had previously (an older one) was very loud and turning the TV up was a necessity when the thing kicked on. It also has a nice variety of cleaning processes to meet whatever size load of dishes. And the cleaning itself is wonderful; the dishes come out perfectly clean and even dried on grease is completely gone. Overall, I would gladly recommend this product to anyone looking for a new dishwasher. This brand is definately a reliable choice and is certainly worth at least researching.

"Review of my Kenmore dishwasher"
I have had my Kenmore dishwasher for a little over a year and am fairly satisfied with how it works. I like how it's simple to understand and use, it only has a few buttons that are clearly labeled. I like how it gives you different options on the different level of wash you want to do. It always seems to do a good job at getting all of the dishes clean and rinsed well. A few things I dont like about this dishwasher is how noisy it is. You can be in the other room and still be able to hear it as if you were standing right next to it. It also seems to take a lot longer to go through a wash cycle than my other dishwasher. I have never had any problems with the dishwasher and never had to do any repairs on it. I would probably consider buying this brand again but would want to look around at other brands and reviews first.

Review:
"Our new kenmore dishwasher."
We had to replace our dishwasher last year because the one we had started to leak all through the floor. We shopped around for a while and decided on a Kenmore. So far, it has done everything we have put to it. The Kenmore works much better than the old one we had. It is much quieter than anything we have had before. We got one that is all white and it matches everything in our kitchen very well. The best part about this dishwasher is the capacity. It can hold much more dishes than the one we had before. It also cleans very well. With the old one, we would have to clean them a little before we put them away. Now all we have to do is put them through the washer and put them away. It's great to not have any extra work. This dishwasher is great and I would recommend it to anyone.
