Our home had a 15-yr old Maytag dishwasher that still worked but wasn't cleaning the dishes very well. We researched different brands and decided to go with Kenmore based on reviews, cost, and reliability. We bought the Kenmore Elite HE dishwasher and it's so quiet we often forget that it's on - the old one was really noisy!! It uses very little water, does an excellent job cleaning the dishes and it hasn't required any servicing to date after a couple of years of frequent use. We used our own plumber to install it as it was replaced during a major renovation.
