NIce dishwasher for small spaces.

By 

from Ottawa Illinois

Comments about Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:

A nice sized dishwasher for small spaces, as it's only 24 inches wide. Cleans dishes well and you don't need to do a lot of pre washing the dishes.

Noise Level
The dish washer runs pretty quiet, and the only noise I have heard was when it was filling and emptying into the drain connected under the sink. It does have a slight swishing sound as the water sprays inside the washer but other than that it is pretty quiet.

Cleaning Time
The cleaning time is satisfactory and only takes about an hour from start to finish with drying time. The dishes are HOT when they are done!

Loading Flexibility
The washer loads well and can hold a lot of dishes in the trays and racks, but it's best to not overload the washer as it could miss a few spots, no matter how good a dishwasher is!

Performance
The best setting is the long setting for the best wash and using the top brand dish washer powder in the machine. It cleans well unless you put the dishes too close on top of one another then it might miss a spot or two. It cleans greasy items but still you need to scrape dishes well and not leave hunks of food on the plates

Design
The only flaw I have seen is the finger prints that you may see on the outside since it is stainless steel!

Durability
The dishwasher is 5 years old and still going strong!

Decent dish washer with some faults

By 

from Westchester, IL

Comments about Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:

I normally wash dishes by hand, but when I'm feeling lazy I use the Kenmore Elite Built-In Dishwasher. This dishwasher has a modern look that fits in with my other kitchen appliances, but some of its features leave more to be desired. There are several wash cycles offered on the top of the door, but sadly most of them take well over 2 hours. This isn't a major deal for me if I have time to monitor the dishwasher from time to time during the washing cycle, but I don't feel comfortable turning it on and leaving the room
for extended periods of time. The normal wash cycle doesn't do a good job of cleaning harden food particles from my dishes and silverware. When I remove my wares from the dishwasher after a full cycle there is still debris on them. Oddly enough I can wipe away the residue fairly easily with a dish cloth. Initially I thought it was the way I positioned the objects, but this only seems to happen on the normal wash cycle. The other cycles do a great job of cleaning, but the long washing time bothers me. I would recommend the Kenmore Elite Built-In Dishwasher to anyone that doesn't mind long washing cycles.

Great Dish Washer

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:

This is a great dish washer for so many different reasons. It works extremely well, it's much more quiet than other dishwashers and it looks so good.

Noise Level
This is the level of quiet I have been looking for in a dish washer. I can hear when it's on so that I know it's doing its job, but it isn't so loud that I can hear it over the TV.

Cleaning Time
This dishwasher gets the job done pretty quickly. It's just as fast as all the other dishwashers out there.

Loading Flexibility
I like all the different types and sizes of dishes that I can load. There is plenty of room to fill whatever I need washed and I really like that.

Performance
My dishes go in pretty dirty and always come out sparkling clean. I have no worries that this dishwasher is going to clean everything perfectly.

Design
I love how great this dishwasher looks. It looks like something out of the future. It is just the best part of my kitchen now.

Durability
I use this dishwasher a lot and haven't had a problem.

No More Pre-Washing

By 

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless Steel:

My father-in-law told me that dishwashers actually save water and are far more efficient than hand washing alone, especially when it comes to sanitizing. So I was open to trying it out, but my first dishwasher was atrocious! The arm split, rendering the jets useless. The next one has completely dysfunctional wheels, so I had to lift it up to scoot it out every time. I had one other in between that require serious scrubbing before any dishes could go in, or they needed rewashing.
A bit gun shy to splurge on a new dishwasher, I finally found the Kenmore Elite 24" Built-In Dishwasher. Finally, a dishwasher that actually does its job! This dishwasher runs quietly while inside it's doing all of the hard work. I barely even have to rinse my dishes before loading them up. I literally run them under a stream of water for a quick rinse, and my Kenmore doesn't leave even a spec of food or gross residue. Dishes come out squeaky clean, and the glasses don't have that nasty film or tacky spots.
My Kenmore Elite is so energy-efficient, which I love! I have definitely seen an improvement in my monthly water bill now that we've been using this dishwasher.
