        Answer

        This dishwasher had a "Made in the USA" sticker on it when I installed mine. I thought I read somewhere that it was manufactured in Ohio.

            strong odor with first uses?   (5 Answers)

            Does this dishwasher have a strong chemical or plastic smell for the first several uses? Worried about new smells from the plastic tub, rubber gaskets, racks etc... Daughter has asthma and reacts badly to this type of thing so any input would be greatly appreciated!

              Answer

              This is a normal smell and should dissipate with time. Try one these recommendations to reduce odor. Run a white vinegar rinse to reduce odor: • Wash and rinse dishes. Do not use a heated dry option. Use an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Remove all silverware or metal items. • Put 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in a glass or dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the bottom rack. • Run the dishwasher through a complete washing cycle using an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Do not use detergent. The vinegar will mix with the wash water. • Run the dishwasher through a normal cycle with detergent after cleaning the interior. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Whirlpool appliances! Thank you, Decole

              Concerning the Filter   (5 Answers)

              Does it need to be replaced? If not, do I need to clean it from time to time (and how easy is it to clean)? If so, how much does it cost?

                Answer

                I cleaned the filter a couple times already, it's just a piece of plastic. so unless you break it, I don't think it would ever need to be replaced.

                  does the door stay propped open half way?   (5 Answers)

                  Hi, For anyone that owns this... does your dishwasher door stay propped open around 4-5 inches without any trouble? We just bought this dishwasher about a month ago and so far I love a lot abut it. But I like to run a cycle before bed and then leave the door propped open to finish up the last bit of drying overnight. With our old Electrolux, the washer door would stay at any point I left it open at. But so far, every time I have left the door open on this one literally more than an inch, at some point within 5-10 mins, the whole door will come slamming down, silverware crashing and all. (I have tried this with no silverware in the door and it still comes crashing down). I would like to know others' experiences with this please!

                    Yes! This dishwasher does that. That was important to me, too. The door stays open wherever you want it.
