Kenmore QuietGuard

This particular dishwasher was already installed when I moved into my apartment. It was a brand new installation, however. I have had it for approximately 2 years. I really like this washer, and it's very compact, which is good for an apartment.


It's very reliable, and it washes dishes great. I never have trouble with spots or stuck on food. It has a lot of options, and plenty of space despite being compact. The drawers are on rolling wheels, which is nice, because you can pull them out further, to use the dishwasher to it's full capacity.

The only problem I've ever had with it, was that it leaked on my kitchen floor. Maintenance came in to check it, and I had accidentally covered the sprayer, so it wasn't even the dishwashers fault! Compared to my parents dishwasher, it's much better.

My parents' dishwasher (a GE) leaks all the time, and has had to be repaired several times in a 5 year period. I know from looking that this model is not very expensive, I know when I move into my first home, I will buy either this particular model, or at least one that is in the Kenmore line.

I'm ruined for other dishwashers! I've been spoiled by the Kenmore. I would definitely recommend this dishwasher to anyone.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard Standard

Have had to get a new control panel after a year and a half- $90 plus $175 labor. Then after 2 years had to replace latch switch assembly where the wires were burned. $75 plus labor.

Do not buy this dishwasher!!!!


Besides these problems the bottom rack is not tall enough to fit some dishes.

Ultrawash Quiet Guard

The control panel plastic face plate breaks down at approximately 8 months along the scoring around each programming option which then falls off. My new dishwasher lasted from October 2009 until May 2010. Then the panel had to be replaced...first replacement under warrantee. Now, 8 months later the same thing has happened. It will cost $275 for service. Maybe some can afford this every eight months. I can't.

Kenmore Quiet Guard Standard model#58715182400

Bought brand new and professionally installed. It's very hard to start. No rhyme or reason, no pattern established, just maybe..maybe not. This is very frustrating. Sears says run the kitchen hot water faucet to "jump start" it.

I can drain 1/2 my hot water tank waiting for the Kenmore to submit. The lights literally go on but the machaine will not start. I open and reclose the door, reset the dials and press start....nothing, repeat...nothing, 4, 5, 6 times...walk away frustrated.

I just keep trying until it starts. When it starts it's a great machine. I'll never buy another Kenmore.
