+1 on the Kenmore Elite with the stainless steel tub. It is so quiet that we have gone to the kitchen to see if it was on.

Purchased about 3 year ago. Has been very good.

Then, I purchased a display model Whirlpool at Sears for my mom. It was last year's model. No box; stainless steel. Very quiet. Incredible price - looked new. At the time of purchase, it was still covered by warranty. No issues.

I think the decibel rating was about 85 to 90 decibels.

I've bought a few different ones for both the last house and this one....we've always ended up going back to a Kenmore Elite like stated above a few times.....Pam loves them and I haven't had either of them break down on me like I did with some of the others.

I bought one of these, installed it, and then I learned it did not dry the dishes. It had NO heater and no fan to do so.

So I uninstalled, returned it, and then got another one. I shopped 100 percent for noise reduction. The one I have now is so quite, I am not sure it is running.

Just be aware that when you buy a Kenmore appliance that they are made by different companies according to Sears specs. In other words, the Kenmore appliance made by Whirlpool is not the same quality as a Whirlpool. Whirpool will install different parts which Sears procures from other vendors.

I knew you were going to ask me that Scott, I can not remeber. I have to go home to see what I ended up with.

I wanted the best as the house I am in will be my retirement home, God willing. I bought the top of the line at Home Depot,. My mother-in-law told me the Bosch was the best, and from England. So I went there and bought. Then the dishes were wet after, and I thought I had a problem.

That is when I learned they are designed to save money, by NOT drying the dishes????

So I bought a name brand, like Whirlpool, but I am not sure right. I wanted the stainless interior, but the most important aspect I was looking for was lowest decimal level. They are rated that way.

Just spoke with the wife, to confirm we purchased a KitchenAid. It was in the $600 - $800 ball park.

As stated before decimal level is where it is at.
