We've had our Kenmore Elite Dishwasher for about 3 years and couldn't be happier! This is the 3rd dishwasher we've had in our household and it is by far the best we've purchased. The quietness of the dishwasher is one of the features that has impressed us most. Our house is fairly small with an open concept, so while sitting in the living room you definitely hear what's going on in the kitchen. Previous dishwashers we owned were much louder. We made a point to turn them on before going to bed so we didn't have to hear the noise while spending time relaxing after dinner. However, with the Kenmore Elite that is not a problem at all. We load and start our dishwasher right after our evening meal and than go on with our activities and really don't even notice the dishwasher is running. This dishwasher also cleans very well - we usually use the SmartWash feature that detects how dirty your dishes are and then washes accordingly. Dishes are always clean - no problems whatsoever. We also really like the stainless steel interior. The only thing I would change about the dishwasher are the bottom racks. I wish they were adjustable. Once in a while I'll have certain dishes that just don't fit the racks the way I'd prefer. Overall, this is by far the best dishwasher we have owned - reasonably priced and a great value! We'll definitely purchase more Kenmore appliances in the future.
