Giant Tub Interior Capacity Energy Star UltraWash System

The 1348 model has a built-in design of dishwashers, manufactured by Kenmore. It features the powerful TurboZone rinsing mechanism with rotating spray jets which is exclusive to Kenmore products that uses just the right amount of pressure to wash away stuck-on foods. This feature makes presoaking or scrubbing dishes unnecessary. The dishwasher’s Ultra Wash System guarantees excellent cleaning with the use of minimal water, time and energy. The model is ranked by Energy Star, which means that it uses 20 percent energy compared to other non-qualified Energy Star models. The cycles available such as Fast Wash, Delay Start and Smartwash allow for a smart way for items to be cleaned.


Interior Features
  • The Giant Tub interior size capacity makes the dishwasher very ideal for items that are large and are shaped awkwardly, as they can be easily accommodated by the lower rack once the upper rack is removed. Thus, pots, pans, ladles and flutes can be cleaned.
  • A dual cup detergent dispenser is very convenient for users who want to do away with estimating or having to measure detergent. The racks are made of nylon material, ensuring for a rust-free, chip-free machine. Meanwhile, the tub is made of gray colored plastic material.

    Exterior Features

  • This model presents a unique two-toned finish. The door panel and overall color of the dishwasher is stainless steel. The console, handle and process panel are in black. Custom panels are also accepted.
  • The patented True Hold door allows the user to keep the door either fully closed or slightly ajar if needed. This is very convenient especially when loading and unloading as the user will not need to hold the door on one hand as it will stay in place.
