Giant Tub Interior Capacity Energy Star Ultra Wash System

Giant Tub Interior Capacity Energy Star Ultra Wash System

The 1346 Built-in dishwasher by Kenmore promises to contain all the features this manufacturer is known for. For example, the SmartWash cycle lessens your effort since you’d just need to press one button, and a mechanism will automatically determine the amount of time and water the machine will use to clean the load placed in the washer. As this washer has an Energy Star rating, it uses 20 percent less energy when compared to standards dishwashers that do not have an Energy Star rating. That’s protecting natural resources while giving you extra savings on your next utility bill.

  • Both the upper and lower racks are made of nylon material which does not allow for your dishes to be scratched and rusted. The dishwasher also enjoys a longer life because there will be no corrosion or chipping in the dishwasher’s interior.
