My elderly mother and father recently purchased a Basic Black Dishwasher from KMART under the Kenmore Brand. It was not cleaning their dishes even when they rinsed the dishes before placing them in the dishwasher. They called for repair and the repair person stated that everything worked OK but the dishwasher was cheap and wasn't going to wash dishes. I personally believe that a dishwasher should not be available for sale if it does not wash the dishes. Maybe when salmonella or other food poisining occurs in a family household the health department should look at the dishwasher. I am lucky my parent's did not get sick from a faulty product. By the way KMART offered to replace the machine by charging them the additional charge to upgrade it.
