    Junk, poor service
    by: Anonymous

    Stupid thing has leaked on the floor (cleaning the gasket with lime-away has limited that somewhat), had the soap cup lid jam, and biggest of all the top rack broke. The 800 number's only goal has been to frustrate us enough to buy a new dishwasher and stop bothering them. Total garbage. I tell everyone I can to keep away from Kenmore these days. We've had big troubles with the fridge too.

    Don't buy this thing
    by: Richard T

    Aug 2, 2012: We've had our dishwasher for just over a year now, and still have a Sears Protection Agreement until 2016 (at a $767.00 hefty pricetag just for the agreement). Had nothing but problems with this unit. The current issue is that it is leaking onto my hardwood floor and is already starting to buckle the flooring. When we call for repair, Sears tells us they won't have anyone available until at least Aug 17th, more that 2 weeks away. That's LOUSY service. Wish we'd never set eyes on it. All of our appliances for the last 35 years have been from Sears. We are washing our hands of Sears appliances from now on.

    As far as cleaning dishes goes, and for being a quiet dishwasher, this is pretty good. But, that's about as far as it goes.

    First of all, the control panel, they call it a crown assembly, PN W10335626, sits right above the outlet vent. Which, in and of itself is OK, but the dim-wit that designed it (or should I say, approved the design) designed the vent for the washer to vent into the cavity right below the control panel WITH NO DEFINITIVE WAY TO EXIT THE STEAM WITHOUT ALLOWING THE STEAM INTO THE CONTROL PANEL.

    I've replaced mine twice in 14 months. The first one was under the 1 year warrantee. I thought it was just a coincidence. NOT.

    Buy the extended warrantee for the time you think you will own the dishwasher.

    bad sensor pads, bad gasket inside

    So you bought this LEMON well so did I ! Because I have an L on my forehead, I was hoping for clean and quiet. Quiet, yes, but since the Gasket leaks steam and water into the circuits and shorts out the mother board on a regular basis, and the parts come from mexico which you have to wait 6-8 WEEKS for, after waiting 2 weeks for an apt. I would be better off spending my money on more dish soap and a rack to dry the dishes on-since we hand wash more than the dishwasher runs a cycle. Sad to say, I will not purchase another sears Kenmore appliance again
