  • Should have kept the 15 year old dishwasher.....

    Oct 22, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice looking, quiet when operating.
    Cons: All beauty, very poor performance.

    Summary: We purchased the Jenn-Air dishwasher over all the other higher end brands because of its reputation for quality (or former). It is now associated with Maytag, which gave us the extra confidence to purchase this Jenn-Air. I was so excited about ... read more

  • Don't buy a Jenn Air Dishwasher

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Sleek look. Quiet when running.
    Cons: Doesn't clean, needs repeated cycles, sits low on floor, slider track wheels fall off.

    Summary: When we recently bought our new home, I was estatic to see a modern built in dishwasher with hidden controls and the ability to wash large amounts of dishes in a single wash. The steel design and sleek features led me to think I'd hit the jackpot and ... read more

    Pros: About the only good thing is the DW looks nice from the outside.
    Cons: Poor cleaning, loud at times, racks rusted through.

    Summary: Purchased this DW when we moved in.  At first it was great but now it barely cleans.  Racks have rusted through and clips have all broken.  Jenn-Air will sell replacement sets for over $200. ... read more

    Pros: Sleek and pretty.
    Cons: Leaves residue and food even on the Heavy cycle. Control panel broke.

    Summary: We've owned our Jenn-Air dishwasher for four years and it has never cleaned properly. Paid a technician to diagnose the problem (bits of detergent residue over everything, and especially in the glasses, also caked up on the door, etc.) and he said it was ... read more

  • Not a good washer. AVOID

    Pros: Pretty- designed to match the other appliances in the jenn-air suite.
    Cons: super long cycles, doesnt clean, not efficient, very expensive for the quality.

    Summary: I, like many other reviewers, had high hopes for this unit thinking that the quality would be at par with the hefty pricetag. I was wrong. This unit doesnt clean well. AT ALL. You have to do so much prep work on the dishes, you may as well hand wash ... read more

    Pros: It matches the other 3 appliance I bought that are also having mechanical issues.
    Cons: Cleans moderately well but not any better than other brands that cost half as much.

    Summary: Bought this less than a year ago and have already had their technician out 3 times to repair/replace a seal at the bottom of the door that will continue to require replacement beacuse that door was attached incorrectly. Their technician came 4 ... read more

    Pros: It's pretty and matches my oven.
    Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE. It doesn't clean and it's too expensive not to clean.

    Summary: I agree with the negative reviews and wish I had read them prior to buying the dishwasher. You don't spend $1100 CDN on a dishwasher and expect to have to wash the dishes by hand to get them clean. I love the Jenn Air range but will NEVER buy another ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice and thats about it.
    Cons: It is not a dishwasher, it is merely an ornament in the kitchen.

    Summary: We bought the Jenn-Air stainless steel front dishwasher from Sears over two years ago. It has proved most disappointing is that it does not get the dishes clean even though we use very hot water, top brand dishwasher liquid and a rinse aid. We always ... read more

    Pros: appearance
    Cons: It simply doesn't clean anything

    Summary: I bought this due to a good reputation of the brand and now realize I should have read up on the reviews of the model. This dishwasher looks nice but it stops there. I've tried all the suggestions of the manufacturer but I have yet to see my dishes come ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice
    Cons: everything else

    Summary: We have 2 of these awful machines. (They were installed with our new home). Both are broken. One leaks and the other stopped working after 4 months. They are a waste of cash. Seriously, save your cash. I am so mad - we have people coming over ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice.
    Cons: Loud. Leaves dishes dirty.
