WHITING, NEW JERSEY -- A drawer dishwasher that costs over 1400.00 should last more than 3 years. From the time I got this dishwasher I had problems. This dishwasher never fully drains. It starts to smell horrible and even builds mold. I have tried pouring bleach in it, took it apart and cleaned it, but it just happens all over again. The round plastic inlet bezel's (4) are always breaking too.
I've only had this dishwasher a few years and the motor burned out. It'd cost me $300 to replace it, so I'm just replacing the dishwasher with another brand. The repair guy told me it's very common for Kenmore/Whirlpool dishwasher (Whirlpool makes them) for the motor to burn out quickly.
I bought my dishwasher and 2 weeks after the warranty ran out it broke down. It is not on the recall list, so basically, I can pay 300 to fix it or go buy a new one - not the elite, Kenmore, - and pay an extra 200 for a new appliance. Wasteful in my eyes and this should be a 5-10 year appliance. Are we getting cheaper products so we spend more? I would think, and I did say think, waste not want not… What message is Kenmore sending?
