Introduction

When we first unpacked the Kenmore 13273, we have to admit we were unimpressed. Having reviewed plenty of Whirlpool-built dishwashers (like this one), the 13273 looked like another run-of-the-mill release. From the plastic wash tub to the scant extra features, it looked, well, boring. But when we finally got it hooked up and had it run through a few washes, the quality of the clean floored us—not just for a $500 machine with a plastic wash tub, but for a dishwasher of any price range.
