    Seems that they have this same washer at different price points depending on the finish. This is the second one I've bought - both great. A good washer for the price. Looks nice inside and out and works great. Bought the all-plastic interior in one house and in next house got the one with steel on the door inside. Feels higher end and looks nice. Didn't realize there was a difference between this one and another that has all-stainless interior which I would've liked even more... oh well, put that in the next house I guess! Installer told me about the need to use the liquid dryer always... I often never bothered with a separate drying product but it really makes a difference. Dishes don't come out with water marks or still dripping. Apparently, theses appliances can't eliminate all the water without a drying product and the excess water could have long term detrimental affects on you washer. Good to know.

    Leaking from front door

    Have had this installed for around 3 months now. Like every other review on here, ours too has never dried the dishes correctly. Honestly, that is not a big deal to us but now the front door is leaking like a few other reviewers have said. Whirlpool has been an absolute joke to deal with on this matter! Some of the worst customer service I have ever received with no exaggeration. We have not been able to use our dishwasher for 2 weeks now and have gotten no help from whirlpool. They were supposed to send a technician out on Monday so my fiancé took off work since that was the only day we were able to get this done. The service provider called 20 minutes before they were supposed to show up on Monday and said they will not make it. They said whirlpool books appointments without knowing the "realtime" of their available appointments. I really wish we had went with the Samsung appliance suite over the whirlpool and so much for the 3 year extended service plan we purchased lol. What a joke!

    we bought this dishwasher (wdt730pahz) this dishwasher has leaked from the bottom of the door since it was installed by a professional plumber .We have had the plumber out twice it was was instlalled correctly . We have called whirlpool 2 times 1st time they it was not level. The 2nd time they were giving us hard time to have whirlpool service man come out they if was not a part problem the going to charge us a $150 call. The service man came out worked on and said it ready to go . We ran it for first time since service man came out and still leaking from the bottom of the door all the insolation batting under door is completely soaked. Now we have to call whirlpool back what a pain for the 3rd time. I had bought a whirlpool water about 10 years ago that to was defective end up taking back to lowes after going back and forth with whirlpool after these 2 experiences I will never buy a whirlpool product ever again.

    Quieter than I expected!

    I bought this dishwasher to match a slide in range by Whirlpool and thought it might be a little noisy because of a few reviews but I was very pleased at how quiet it is. I can hardly hear it when running and we have an open plan kitchen, living and dining room. It also gets the dishes very clean. I started out using the full length normal wash cycle but have been using the fast, one hour wash lately. Both cycles clean dishes very well, (I do usually give things a quick rinse or very good scrape first). Will try not pre-cleaning sometime. There is one feature that I would have liked. There is no rinse and hold feature with this dishwasher, which I used on my old dishwasher. It is a minor detail and I just cancel the wash cycle if I only need a quick rinse of something. Overall; I love it

    This is the quietest dishwasher I have NEVER heard. It runs so quiet that you literally have to be quiet and put your ear next to it to listen to it running. The controls are very effective and placed appropriately. There is a 4 second delay when you hit start allowing you to close the door. If you open it during the wash to place something you forgot it gives you and audible alert to remind you to rehit start. Then again you have 4 seconds to close door. Dishes come out very clean and given the quietness of this dishwasher I give it 6 stars if I could. Great product.

    After my previous dishwasher, (another brand) stopped functioning properly, my research made it more cost effective to purchase an inexpensive dishwasher vs. getting parts. To my surprise the Whirlpool dishwasher cleaned all the dishes, pots, pans etc. as I have never seen with other dishwashers Iv'e owned. It is extremely quiet, has a count down clock and an on light in front for easy visualization of when it is running. I have purposely left food debris on the dishes and pans and would come out spotless and dry, all on the least time of washing. I recommend this product 100 % and the cost is fantastic!

    Excellent Dishwasher

    This is an excellent dishwasher especially for the price. Our old dishwasher was working but we decided to go ahead and replace it anyway and I wish we would have done it sooner. We were thinking of replacing our dishes because they just didn't have the high shine anymore. After buying this washer it has changed our thought process. The dishes now have the resilient shine from when they were new. If there is any downside it would be the cycle is twice as long as the old dishwasher. However, given the cleanliness of our dishes, it really is a fair tradeoff.

    We purchased this unit and needed something affordable. We were not disappointed. The unit was light and easy for my wife and I to get into the house. Even with a tight fit with regard to how deep we could push the unit in (we didn't have as much depth as we would have liked as the unit sits close to an outside wall), we were still able to work it in. Connectors were very easy. A simply flexible supply line connects on the left side near the front of the unit. Nice long drain hose which we needed. The unit has good padding and is quiet.

    Cleans well

    I have only used my dishwasher once so far, but the dishes came out very clean! The only downfall so far has been that it takes a long time to get done. It took over 3 hours just on the normal cycle. I do like the light on the front to let you know it is on. The only other hang up was I did have standing water in it after the first use. But it ended up being a clogged hose. It was a pain trying to get this fixed and many minutes on the phone. The customer service could of been improved, but now fixed and hopefully good for a long time!

    Very good dishwasher for the price range

    So far I am very happy with the performance of this dishwasher. The dishes look great and it cleans very well. I’d read that the stainless steel lined washers don’t always dry well enough if they don’t have a heating coil for dry heat so we purposely bought this one as it includes the heated dry cycle. Even still, I have found that it does develop an odor if not run every day or two. I leave the door open slightly after the dry cycle and it’s been fine

    Garbage

    Our motor went bad four months after using our dishwasher. We got the motor replaced and now it’s out of warranty and the motor went bad again, after another six months. They covered the price of the motor but we have a $225 service fee i’m guessing another six months we will have the same issue. Funny how the service fee is more than half of a new dishwasher cost. Regretting that we just bought a 3500$ whirlpool refrigerator.

    We've always had good luck with Whirlpool appliances & this one is no exception. It's quiet as advertised & gets the dishes clean on normal + hot water cycle. Be warned that it takes a while, something in the range of 4 hours. So you can't get many loads done in one day. The controls are hidden, which I personally find irritating (would like to see minutes remaining), but it does give a nice clean front. The Best Buy installers were amazing - cheerful (on a Saturday) & fast.

    I use my dishwasher to store my dishes after hand washing them. The drain feature is awesome, so the water wont build up. Just hold the drain button for 3 sec to start however it always start the wash cycle instead. Very annoying!!! I do run the wash cycle occasionally. They are longer compare to older models. They say its energy effective but I believe it uses a lot more water for a wash cycle.. Its still a great product. I love whirlpool brand.

    I'll start out by saying Mike our salesperson was very helpful. Set up the measuring appt for the cooktop. Guys who came out to measure were very nice and also did the install. Price was pretty high but downdraft cooktop are all expensive. Install went flawlessly and the cooktop looks great! The burners all turn on and the fan works. So far so good. Nice looking cooktop and overall good service by all.

    I am amazed at how LONG it takes to run a cycle, but this is the first machine that tells me how long the cycle is! The top rack raises and lowers to meet size needs if you have large things on the bottom, so this is GREAT! The racks seem flimsy, but they don't really need to be much more than what they are. It is dark inside of it, all black, so it's kind of a black hole when loading it in the evening. Overall decent for the price.

    A salesman quoted and wrote down the price on the back of his card.Since we were returning a machine that was installed that day, the order could not be placed into the system until the next day . The next day the manager of the store would not honor the price on the back of the salesman's card saying the salesman made a mistake. The price difference was about $50. We bought the machine, but my trust in Best Buy as an honorable company is gone. I will not buy a new product from Best Buy for the foreseeable future.

    Upgraded our 20+ year old whirlpool for this model just before Thanksgiving. Online ordering and scheduling was easy, delivery was efficient and professional. Installed the unit myself in an afternoon with the majority of the effort directed to finding a new fitting I forgot to remove from the old model for hook up. Dishwasher runs so quietly, I can barely tell it’s running. So far it has operated effectively and efficiently.

    This is a nice washer for the price and gets the job done. However, it takes forever to wash a load of dishes! I also found that if I don't use rinse aid, it just doesn't dry the dishes properly. It also doesn't fit as many dishes as other models. For the price, it's a good washer and will get the job done, but I kind of wish I'd splurged on a higher end model with more features.

    We opted to replace our broken dishwasher with this unit. The stainless inside and out look great. The adjustable height feature of the top rack is awesome for when you need to clean larger pots and pans on the bottom. Only reason this did. It receive 5-stars is the loudness. It’s not loud by any means, it just isn’t MUCH quieter than our old 10 year old dishwasher that broke.

    This dishwasher is beautiful and spacious inside. The top rack allows us to store our glasses and fragile way in a way they won't chip. It cleans everything pretty good - but it doesn't seem to rinse very well. Even after we filled up the rinse-aid. Not quite sure why - it has a bottom spray and a top spray.... And we don't pack the thing super heavy either! Otherwise...it works well and is super quiet!
