The dishwasher fits and looks much nicer than my old one that was 20 years old. It has less features but it has everything i usually used anyway. Surprisingly quiet! Our house is an open concept so that is nice to find out. Dishes came out clean and dry first time trying it out, i did use a rinse agent and powdered dw soap.. Some of my taller glasses and cups fit in the top rack now. I did a lot of researching before deciding on this one, Ive never used whirlpool before but after reading lot of reviews on different whirlpool dishwashers I felt confident this was a good buy to replace my old kenmore. This appears to be a newer model as there was no reviews anywhere on it yet. The older model simular to this one had good reviews though. I like that I can move the silverware basket around and I can open the tops if the silverware doesnt fit in the slots and just lay them in there. Very pleased with my purchase of this a few days ago.

I feel that I made the best choice for the money. I reviewed every machine in every price range. I depended on customer and professional reviews. This dishwasher was new on the market and had no reviews when purchased. It had the features that the best machines offered. Quiet and the dishes are dry. Great choice. Best Buy delivery was on time and professional.

Decent for the price
Posted by: Eric267 from: on
So for the price I paid this appeared to be the best option, I searched online a lot. And better yet, it went on sale after I ordered it so Best Buy issued me a credit for the difference. I did the installation myself and compared it to the 20 year old Kenmore I was replacing.
The Whirlpool is not as solidly built, a lot more cost efficiencies obviously, lots more plastic and thin gauge metal. There is also almost ZERO room to work under the dishwasher once you get it into the cabinet, so hopefully you can get everything connected before you slide it in.
The water inlet is 3/4" - not 3/8" like your water lines under the sink are. This dishwasher does not include an adapter, so you'll need that. And the only way to get one usually is a "kit" with other things you don't need, so add 20 bucks to the price of the dishwasher.
Drying aid - they harp on the need for this in the owner's manual. I ran it the first time empty and in fact it was full of condensation on the inside at the end. So, if you had a dishwasher you were using only detergent in you'd better plan on that drying aid stuff in addition now if you want dry dishes.
Sound - I saw a couple comments about the noise level. This unit is no quieter than any other dishwasher. It's the same as the old one it replaced. There is a big "blanket" of insulation that comes with it, which is not sized to fit it and not properly set up to secure it when you slide it into place. I had to put some tape near the edges and cram it into the cabinet space. That blanket thing is probably an attempt to cut sound down, it makes it not unreasonably loud but not whisper quiet either.

Great Dishwasher! Very Quiet! Cleans Well!

This dishwasher was a step up from what we already had. That is suprising since it was priced so low. I feel like we got a better dishwasher than we paid for

Excellent basic dishwasher

If using the Heavy Cycle with the High Temp dry, this dishwasher is excellent. It is very quiet and a great bang for the buck.

Whirlpool 24" Dishwasher
Posted by: tigerroar from: Stockton, CA on
I purchased this dishwasher to replace my 15 year old GE dishwasher. I shopped for price, color, and quiet. The dishwasher was easy to install provided youpurchase the installation kit (additional charge). The silverware tray is flimsy and comes off the inside of the door to rest on 2 plastic prongs attached to the end of the bottom tray. It has 2 rotating water blades which helps clean. The cycle is really long so I recommend the 1 hour cycle to save water and power. The drying element doesn't work very well as the dishes are still damp when it finishes. All of my dishes come out nice and squeeky clean but we do rinse and brush them before placing them in the dishwasher, which believe helps. The best feature's are the sleek look and the ver VERY quiet cycles. I have a great room with a pass through opening to my kitchen so with our old machine we could only run it at bed time or in the morning when no one was watching TV in the great room. I run it on the one hour cycle without heat drying and leave the dishes inside until it cools, they are just as dry as when I select the heat drying cycle. Overall for the price it is a very good dishwasher.

Great dishwasher, does a great job, was cheap enough, about 315.00, replace a Whirlpool Gold dishwasher that was about eight years old and cost twice as much, this one is very quiet, you barely tell if it is running or not.The wife says she like it better than the Whirlpool Gold dishwasher this one replaced, cleans better ect. Had to buy another elbow as Whirlpool has changed up the water line connect, coast about four dollars at Home Depot, the drain line comes with the dishwasher. I would buy again.

I have always expected dishwashers to be one of the lasting elements in a kitchen. This one lasted for about two and a half years, with regular use. I always had to make sure there was no food caked on before putting the dishes in. Next time I'll be investing in a better quality dish washer, seeing as how it is used every day or so.

Don't discount the white look!
Posted by: Trainop from: on
While this dishwasher was priced at $269 on sale... the same stainless steel washer runs at $499. If you have Ultra-High Gloss IKEA kitchen cabinets, it will blend perfectly and give the same reflective effect without purchasing a washer that allows you to put a kitchen panel/door on the front of the washer. It also fits perfectly within the IKEA plinth (kickplate) without using the Whirlpool bottom cover with two plastic screws.
This washer is much quieter than the Kenmore we had. It takes time to get used to the on/off washing function within the hour it takes to complete a load.
The reviews that state that this washer DOES NOT DRY WELL is NOT TRUE. If you expect it to dry with no assistance it won't. We use the drying/rinsing agent that Cascade sells and fill the reservoir. Dishes come out dry and spot free every time.
