I bought Kenmore Elite for my Kitchen, Dishwasher/microwave/refrigerator in 2018. I thought that I was getting Quality appliances. I got 3 Lemons instead. The Dishwash has been fixed countless times.. I'm sick of it and replacing it with a different brand. The microwave broke and I replace it with a matching Kenmore and now has broken again. The Refrigerator compressor went out like every other Kenmore refrigerator.. of course it's a LG compressor inside. The repair man said it was his third replacement today. I was totally ripped off. I thought you know Sears.. they have good appliances.. Kenmore elite.. these should be perfectly good appliances.. but all 3 of these have been broken, fixed or replaced in less than 4 years. ** Kenmore! Do not ever buy anything with the name Kenmore on it.

We have a maintenance contract with Kenmore to repair our dishwasher. The dishwasher died. We called to have it repaired. No repairman appeared on the assigned date. A call to the repair number "succeeded" only to set up another date a month out. (Previously we had a Kenmore water heater die. We had a maintenance contract on it too. A visit to the Sears store for help just got us a "call a plumber" answer.) We just ordered a replacement (another brand) from Home Depot.

    My dishwasher is about 8 years old. It is a Sears Kenmore Elite. I love it, but occasionally it would go off track. We called in an electrician who put in something to fix it, and we haven't had a problem since.

    I bought a Kenmore in 1995/ or 6. We are sill using it, the baskets are worn really bad, but it works perfectly, no leaks. We use it about every other day. Model#280-673. Uses least energy. Color is black.

    Quiet- cleans very well- has many options which one may or may not use- would buy again- I believe in Kenmore products though they are made by Whirlpool and may or may not have LG parts- This dishwasher is very dependable, very quiet and thorough in the cleaning of dishes placed inside.

    This dishwasher is mediocre. It cleans okay. I have never had rewash anything as long as I fill both soap dispensers. The big problem I have is with the door. I have to slam it shut or sooner or later it stops working until I slam it again. Which is a pain when I go to empty the clean dishes and the start button light is flashing on and off!

    We have always bought Kenmore appliances and have had great service from Sears. We have Kenmore washer, dryer, dishwasher, stove and fridge and freezer. We have been married for 50 years and always had Kenmore appliances. I would highly recommend them. It is too bad that they have closed down all the stores in Canada.

    I wrote a complaint and tried calling, but no response. The water circulator pump failed per a repairman, and too expensive to repair. Incredible that an expensive appliance should fail like that with no remedy.

    After my KitchenAid lasted only five years, this Kenmore Elite has been a lifesaver. In nine years I have not experienced any leaks, food buildup, or any significant issues with cleaning. The top racks hold a variety of glasses, including wine or champagne, small dishes and bowls and coffee pots. The bottom rack is user friendly where I can put a week's worth of dinner dishes, bowls, and soup bowls. As the KitchenAid runs the noise is very minimal and unobtrusive. I would purchase this model again.

    Service on the dishwasher was good, they came out the next day and fixed the door and it has been working great ever since. I would recommend it to anyone. The serviceman knew his job. Like I said it was fixed in about 15 minutes. Thank You and God Bless Us- all...
