Kenmore 1344 White Built-in Dishwasher

Standard Interior Size Capacity Energy Star Sani Rinse

Standard Interior Size Capacity Energy Star Sani Rinse

The 1344 dishwasher by Kenmore is qualified for Energy Star, which means it utilizes 20 percent less energy than dishwashers that do not have the Energy Star rating. It is equipped with nylon racks that do not scratch and rust, which prolong the life of both your dining ware and your dishwasher. The Sani Rinse option uses a high-temperature rinse certified by the NSF to get rid of 99.999% of certain bacteria, guaranteeing perfectly-clean items. For lightly-soiled items, you may choose to run the quick rinse cycle, saving time, energy and water. The standard tub may not hold as much as giant tub models also by Kenmore, but it does accommodate large pans and long items.

Interior Features
  • The dual-cup detergent dispenser takes the guesswork out of measuring the right amounts of detergent for each cycle. Equipped with a No Heat Air Dry option, there is no need to worry about a drying option that would be too harsh for delicate china or dining ware.
  • A pots and pans special cycle is included in the washer to effectively wash stubborn stick-on dirt in these kitchen implements. Included in wash rinse options are a 2, 4, and 6 hour delay wash, a cancel and drain feature, a hi-temperature wash, an NSF-certified rinse and the Sani-Rinse sanitary rinse option.
  • The upper rack is one vacant space for all the large items, while the lower rack features fold-down tines, a silverware basket and one with covers. With all these features, washing the dishes becomes an easier task.

    Exterior Features

  • The washer looks very clean and sleek with its entire façade in white: the door panel, console, handle and control panel are all done in white. The fully visible console door style allows you to see what’s going on in the machine without having to open it.
  • The patented True Hold door makes user utilize just the right amount of effort to open and close the washer’s door. No need to slam or exert too much energy just to operate the door.
