Cheap and effective

The $400 Kenmore 13002 dishwasher keeps the frills to a minimum so you can get performance power for less.

The bottom rack

None of the tines are foldable, but you can still fit plenty of dishes.

The top rack

Our bowls were a little cramped on the upper rack.

Get everything set, and the dishwasher runs a normal cycle in less than two hours.

Primary wash arms

The arms on the bottom of the tub and beneath the upper rack do a good job of getting water into the crevices of dishes.

Performance scores

The 13002 cleans as well as dishwashers that cost two to three times as much.
