I cannot complain because this thing cleans so much better than my previous washer, and looks so nice and clean to boot. But. I do wish it dried better - I expect a heated dry setting to actually get hot enough to totally dry the dishes.
I received this product about 3 wks ago. Replacing a $20 old used dishwasher I had. I should have kept the old one! This dishwasher does not dry at all. Some water spots expected maybe drying the bottom of cups where water has gotten stuck and sitting. That is not the case. The entire tub/washer area is soaking wet. I am using a drying agent as directed. I've also read it can take 2 wks for the dishwasher to be "seasoned". Season is over moving on. Luckily I called best buy on my 15th day (return or exchange time limit) and I have a GE dishwasher on the way to replace this one. Its not worth the hassle, don't bother with purchasing this dishwasher.
Delivery came nearly two hours before the "window" promised, so I wasn't ready. This is the only dishwasher I have ever seen that sells without insulation. It also lacks a power cord and brass water fitting, so buy the install kit or remove them from your old dishwasher. Best Buy online said $180 to install, then said there was no one servicing my area. The delivery guys said they would have installed if I had the install kit. They said I couldn't reuse the parts on my old dishwasher -- which I could have, except by the time my handyman told me, the delivery guys had taken it. The good news is that this Amana dishwasher works well, even if it looks a little dated and has lots of plastic parts inside. After a wash and heated dry, my Tupperware containers on the top rack came out wet, but the ceramic dishes on the bottom rack were dry--so hot, in fact, that they were hard to handle. Overall, I am satisfied, but if I were starting over, I'd spend more to get metal inside and more attractive control panel.
We had an amana dishwasher before this one for 12 yrs or more without any problems. That's why we decided to buy another amana. I installed it in about a half hr including taking the old amana out. We ran our first load last night and it washed just as good as the old amana did. I don't understand why so many people say it didn't dry very well because every dish was dry including our plastic water bottles. This doesn't have the bells and whistles like delay or how many minutes left til it's done washing but who cares. For 298 it washes as good as the so called high end ones and the stainless steel is very nice. Matches everything in our kitchen. Now the only thing I found different was the racks were smaller than the one I replaced. I don't know why whirlpool, they are the makers, made the racks this way. It's pretty frustrating when the coffee cups and soup bowls don't fit quite right but we made it work. I also replaces the bottom rack with my old one from the machine I took out. Overall though I would recommend this washer to anyone who didn't want to waist their money on a washer that has options that at least we never would ve used. The best thing too is its made in the good old USA. Fantastic!
This dishwasher is one of the cheaper models but we were looking for a basic dishwasher without all the whistles and bells. It looks good, cleans well, and it's fairly quiet. If you use the "normal" setting it takes a long time to do the job. The "1 hour" setting is faster but not as energy efficient. In either case, when the cycle is done the dishes are clean and dry but there's a lot water left in the dishwasher. It's all over the sides, the bottom, and even the utensil tray is dripping. I called the help line and was told that it was normal for it to do that. They said that in order to make the units more energy efficient that the water doesn't get as hot. We always use the rinse aid but there's still a lot of water left inside. The help line person did say that the dishwashers with the stainless steel interiors don't have that problem. I would not recommend this product.
A:AnswerNot at all. It's the loudest dishwasher I've heard since the 1990's. I have a 900Watt surround sound system in the next room that can't drown out the noise this thing makes.
I have the same model, but in white.
A:AnswerHope, please make sure that you are using a rinse aid with your Dishwasher. Because of our Dishwashers being energy efficient, they use less water and energy so we depend on rinse aid to help with the drying of the dishes. It is normal for some moisture to be inside of the Dishwasher. We would recommend that you increase your rinse aid setting to dispense more rinse aid, as that will help the drying of the dishes. It can take up to 30 washes for the rinse aid to distribute inside of the Dishwasher and for you to notice a difference in the water left on the door and the walls. We also would recommend using the heated dry option. We hope this helps!
A:AnswerHello Robin, To add rinse aid, turn the dispenser cap to “Open” and lift off. Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator level is at “Full.” Replace the dispenser cap and turn to “Lock.” Make sure cap is fully locked. Hopefully this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Amana appliances!
