We are finishing up our kitchen remodel and are in need of a new dishwasher. We are going GE on the rest of the appliances but GE dishwashers don't get good reviews so we are looking between Kenmore or Bosch. Looking at spending less than 1,000 on either one. Do you have one in either brand? Likes, dislikes about it? Thanks!

This post is probably too late, but Sears/Kenmore doesn't make their own appliances. They get other companies like Whirlpool, Frigidaire and GE to make them. A Kenmore dishwasher could very well be made by GE, which you said you don't want.

If you have the model number of a Kenmore appliance, you go to this website - Appliance411 Repair Parts: Who makes Sears, Kenmore? to see who the manufacturer is/was.

Due to gov't efficiency standards put in place since 2012, any reviews before 2014 are now worthless. As a friend of mine is a Sears appliance tech, stay away from the common American brands. So go with the Bosch. Alternatives are Samsung and LG.

We had a Bosch and LOVED it. It's been 3 years since we moved and we still lament leaving behind our Bosch. It was so quiet that there was a light that shone on the floor to let you know it was running. Cleaned everything beautifully. Love, love, loved it. I'm anxiously awaiting the first thing our current dishwasher does wrong to use it as an excuse to get a Bosch instead.

We went with LG, and love it. Dead quiet, and cleans well. It's stainless inside, not just the door. Bosch didn't have a food grinder so with it scraping/rinsing is required. I think it has to do with being European, where they don't allow garbage disposals.

Default Whirlpool vs Bosch Dishwasher

We need a new dishwasher and my original plan was to get a $300 Whirlpool. However with installation (and truck delivery, since that isn't free with a $300 model) the total would be around $550. Currently the Bosch models come with free installation (and free delivery since they're more expensive) so even though the least expensive stainless steel model is $539, I'd end up paying only about $50-$75 more than the Whirlpool. I'm leaning towards the Bosch since it seems to be a better dishwasher and not a big price difference overall but I'd like to get others' opinions. I think the main drawback of the Bosch is that the silverware rack isn't in the inside of the door like it is with the Whirlpool, so it takes up space in the dishwasher. We have a family of 4, so having plenty of space (efficient space) is important.

Bosch is mine favourite dishwasher. I used this two years ago on my close friends recommendation and I am quite impressed with results. This is very efficient and reliable. I greatly recommend all to go for this product without any worry.
