Re: stainless steel?

Stainless Steel are alloys that are made up of iron and generally contain around 11.5% chromium. The addition of chromium allows the alloy to form a protective self-healing oxide film, thereby making them resistant to corrosion and oxidation even at extremely high temperatures. Due to this feature, stainless steel is used for making products across many fields. For obtaining special properties, nickel and other elements can be added to this alloy.

Stainless Steel has excellent resistance to corrosion, protection against corrosion, hygienic material, good strength and ductility, ease of fabrication, ease of maintenance, excellent durability. Therefore, it is used in different industries such as Food industry, Pharmaceutical industry, Petrochemical industry, Automotive industry, Construction industry, Oil and Gas industry, Medical field, Water and sewage systems, Aviation engine components, Nuclear industry.

Re: stainless steel?

There are many (>100) standard stainless steel alloys. The most commonly used stainless steel alloys in appliances are "austenitic" - these have a higher chromium content and added nickel. The nickel modifies the physical structure of the steel and makes it non-magnetic.

Stainless panel for Kenmore 3631532 dishwasher?

I have two options for you to consider. One is to take your panel to any sheet metal fabricating shop and have them make a stainless steel version for you. The other is to get a spray can of stainless steel appliance paint and apply it. i have used the stainless steel paint on entire appliances with excellent results.

Want to replace painted front panel with stainless steel

The installation instructions and the Owner's Manual do not say how to replace the panel.  It may not be possible to change without replacing the entire door.
Look for trim near the top of the door that is attached by screws.  If the trim can be removed the old panel can be slid up and out and the new panel can be slid in.  Alternatively look for side trim piece(s) that might be removable allowing the panel to be slid in.

Can I get a different front door for my dishwasher?

From what I could gather, it appears that there may be a door panel kit available for your dishwasher. The kit appears to have the panel kit and the curved handle included. Some links for visual reference:

SGZ1005UC Stainless w/tubular Towel Bar Handle
SGZ1006UC Stanless w/curved Handle
