The Kenmore brand has always been about bringing More of What Matters to your home, your life, and your family. And when it comes to dishwashers, what matters most is getting dishes sparkling clean without soaking or scrubbing, and spotlessly dry without towel-drying afterward. It means a kitchen companion that looks stylishly right at home, and quiet enough to never interrupt your mood.
Kenmore’s all-new lineup of built-in dishwashers are now available online at your favorite retail locations. We’re here to share a brief preview of these new models and some of their most important features. Five new dishwashers are making their debut, each one available in a choice of colors and finishes.
We’ll start by noting all models have stainless steel tubs, at all price points, to improve performance, durability, and overall look. We designed these dishwashers with you in mind, leading with quality performance, trusted reliability, and just plain good-looking-ness.
Let’s take a quick look at these mean clean machines, starting with the most affordable and leading up to our most fully featured models.
Kenmore Built-In Dishwasher with UltraWash®
#14582/9/5 – Available in White, Black, and Fingerprint-Resistant Stainless Steel
This value-centric dishwasher comes loaded with many of our most in-demand features at a pleasingly affordable price, plus quite 57 dBA* operation.
UltraWash® System with UltraWash® Filter – Two pressurized spray arms blast off stuck-on foods, so you don’t have to soak, scrub or scrape. Dishes are cleaned with filtered water throughout each cycle for super-clean plates, glasses and cookware. The three-stage UltraWash® Filter captures particles as small as a grain of fine sand and drains them away so they can’t redeposit on dishes.
SmartWash® Cycle – The SmartWash® cycle takes all the guesswork out of doing dishes. Smart sensor technology detects the amount of soil in the water and adjusts the water temperature, water pressure and cycle time to deliver the best cleaning results for each load.
SmartDry™ System – This smart system adjusts drying time to match the selected wash cycle and optimizes drying for every load you wash.
Capacity for 14 Place Settings – The spacious family-sized interior can handle up to 14 complete place settings… or loads of assorted dishes, pots and pans and stemware.
Kenmore Dishwasher with UltraWash® and SmartDry™ Plus
#14592/9/5 – Available in White, Black, and Fingerprint-Resistant Stainless Steel
Like the previous model above (#1458x), this new dishwasher includes the UltraWash® System, UltraWash® Filter, SmartWash® Cycle, and enough capacity inside for up to 14 place settings. But it adds a premium drying system and superior sound insulation.
SmartDry™ Plus Drying System – This innovative system uses hot water and larger condensation channels to move moisture down the drain so dishes get a more complete dry, every time.
51 dBA* Sound Package – With extra-quiet operation, this dishwasher fades into the background so you can sing along to your favorite song without interruption.
Kenmore Dishwasher with EasyFlex™ Third Rack and UltraWash® Plus
#14602/9/5 – Available in White, Black, and Fingerprint-Resistant Stainless Steel
Similar to models #1458x and #1459x, this new Kenmore dishwasher includes the UltraWash® Filter system, and a SmartWash® Cycle. But it also comes equipped with a host of bonus features that enhance performance and make your life a little easier.
UltraWash® Plus – This advanced cleaning system uses a trio of pressurized spray arms to blast dishes from every angle, cleaning with filtered, clean water throughout each cycle leaving plates, glasses and cookware so clean they sparkle.
Turbo Dry™ Drying System – Ditch the dish towel once and for all. TurboDry™ delivers an extra dose of drying power by drawing moisture and warm air out of the dishwasher with a fan tucked inside the door for spot-free dishes.
EasyFlex™ Third Rack – Adjustable EasyFlex™ third rack provides extra loading area for large utensils such as cooking spoons, spatulas and chef’s knives.
Capacity for 15 Place Settings – The party-ready interior can accommodate up to 15 complete place settings, or an equivalent amount of dishes, plates, glasses, cookware, etc.
45 dBA* Whisper-Quiet Operation – Go ahead and make that phone call. This model is so quiet, you won’t be interrupted.
Accela-Wash Option – This wash cycle option uses slightly more water and energy to clean dishes in less time without sacrificing performance. It comes in handy when you’re entertaining and need to do more loads than usual.
Kenmore Dishwasher with Removable Third Rack and UltraWash® Plus
#14622/9/5 – Available in White, Black, and Fingerprint-Resistant Stainless Steel
#14632/9/5 – Available in White, Black, and Fingerprint-Resistant Stainless Steel
These impressive Kenmore built-in dishwashers are just as packed with super-premium step-up features as the #1460x model detailed above, plus top controls to hide buttons from those sticky little fingers.
Removable Third Rack – The spacious third rack holds all the extras like large cooking utensils, knives and more… plus, when needed, it can be removed to make room for taller items on the middle rack. It’s your pinch hitter in loading flexibility.
Stylish Large Pocket Handle (model # 1463x only) – The extra-wide flush pocket handle brings an elevated sense of style to your kitchen décor, with a timeless design that complements virtually any kitchen.
*Per IEC Standards.
Other Important Features
Each of these new Kenmore dishwasher models include a set of “standard” features that are actually pretty extraordinary. If it’s been a while since you last shopped for a new dishwasher for your kitchen, some of these features may be new to you.
ENERGY STAR® Certified – Save water, energy and money every time you clean.
Sanitizing Rinse Option – Sani Rinse removes over 99.99% of bacteria from your dishes and glassware, giving you seriously clean dishes and added peace of mind.
Half-Load Option – Don’t have a full load but need clean dishes? No worries, the Half Load option is an efficient solution when you have just a few dishes to clean.
Delay Start – Pause the start of the wash cycle for 1 to 24 hours, making it easy to add more items to the load or to run the dishwasher during off-peak hours for utility savings.
Extra Dry – This option increases water temperature at the end of the cycle and increases drying time by 20 minutes. Perfect for items that are difficult to dry, such as plastic storage containers.
Stainless Steel Interior – Stainless not only looks good, it’s also durable, resists stains, and retains heat to help improve drying performance.
MoreSpace™ Adjustable Rack – While empty, you can lower, lift or remove the adjustable upper rack with ease to accommodate large and oddly shaped items.
Quiet Wash – On select models, when you need to be extra quiet, the Quiet Wash option increases wash temperature and cycle duration while decreasing the noise.
Digital Display with Countdown Timer – Our front-control models come equipped with a digital display, showing you just how much time is left for that cup of coffee or trip to the store before it’s time to unload.
Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about dishwashers. If you have a question of your own, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
Q: All I really care about is getting my dishes clean. Which dishwasher will clean the best?
A: Kenmore dishwashers that feature UltraWash® and UltraWash® Plus are designed with pressurized spray arms to blast dishes with filtered, clean water for dishes and glassware that sparkle. No more soaking, scrubbing, or scraping.
Q: How much water does a dishwasher use?
A: On average, a typical dishwasher will use around six gallons of water per load. If you use your dishwasher every day or two, that can really add up. But models that are ENERGY STAR® certified, like the new Kenmore models, use considerably less water (and energy) with every load you wash.
Q: Is it necessary to towel-dry damp dishes after they wash?
A: No. Dishwashers designed with stainless steel interiors and advanced drying systems, like Kenmore’s Smart Dry™ and Turbo Dry™ systems, will optimize drying performance so your dishes and glassware come out dry and spot-free. You can put the dish towel away.
