    Solid medium quality washer

    I bought this as a replacement for a cheapo builders special that was no longer doing the job. I wanted a stainless tub and something that really washed well. Based on reviews, I purchase this model sight unseen. So far, it seems to be working well. There are only two issues that I've had. One being that fact that the old dishwasher mounting holes in the granite counter did not seem to line up well to the tabs for this model. We tried to use the side mount kit instead and that ended up blowing out the wood side of the cabinet. I don't know why these have to be so hard to mount. Second issue which is really more of the reason why I took a star off. I hate hate hate the silverware basket. You have the option of putting it on the lower rack OR mounted on the door. On the lower rack, its totally unstable and flops around. However, on the door, is a pain in the neck. I probably would have passed on this model just for this had I known how clumsy the silverware holder was. Maybe I'm picky, I don't know. FOr something used every day, I think its important not to get frustrated with it.

    We had our last Whirlpool for over 15 years so we decided to go for the same brand hoping for the same longevity. After reading reviews I was worried about the possibility of noise. Let me say this dishwasher is Very quiet. The top basket lifts up a little higher to make room on the lower deck for large dishes. Nice addition. I prefer my utensil rack to be on the lower rack not the door and it works just like our old washer did so no problems there. I'm guessing the long wash times are some how due to it being energy efficient ? I use the 1 hour with a dry time added. So total time was 1 hour 20 min. total. At that point it wasn't completely dry so we just left it till morning. No problem since I don't need put them away till later anyway. So far we are very happy with the new washer and the way it looks is very nice.

    Good Choice

    This dishwasher is very aesthetically pleasing. I wanted one where the controls didn't show but I also needed it to have a flat front (no handle) due to space concerns. That really narrowed down my choices, so I went with this one based on the reviews and the price. I also wanted one that was quiet. This thing is VERY QUIET. The first one that was delivered had clearly been crushed by a forklift. Best Buy was great to work with in terms of getting a replacement one back out to me. I thought I'd love the silverware bucket being on the door, but I actually really dislike it. I also feel like the silverware doesn't come out as clean as it should. Maybe that's because of where the silverware bucket is? Or maybe it's the dishwasher itself? I'm not sure, but that's why I'm giving it 4 stars. I rewash silverware a lot.

    Due to a tight place for it, installers had hard time of getting it set right, with all loose insulation pads with it. However, now when it is in place, it looks like always been there. There is a little vent on the left of the door we had not noticed before, and we were afraid that there will be steam coming out of it. Luckily this is not the case. Washing results were clearly better than with our old washer, and sound is MUCH quieter. Only negative point: start button is very close to the "handle" where you open the door in our case (right side of the door). Have to get used to opening the door from center or left, so that you don't accidentally turn it on when opening it for putting more dishes in.

    Pros: Sleek look. Cleans dishes well. Quiet. Utensil holder in door gives more room on bottom rack for pots, pans and plates Cons: Takes quite a while (2-3 hours on normal wash setting). Top shelf is not set up as well as it could be for maximum dish placement. Does not dry the dishes as well as our old unit. This dishwasher is better than "Good" but I didn't think it qualified as "excellent". It was a good deal compared to others we looked at with similar amenities and Best Buy made sure we got the best price.

    This Whirlpool unit replaced our Kenmore Elite and snuggly fit in the same cabinet slot. The new unit is much quieter than the Kenmore but it is also smaller inside. Maybe due to more sound dampening. The plumbing valves are more gentle too. No pipe hammering like with our Kenmore. Overall I’m very happy but the wife does not like the smaller payload and the silverware rack being on the door so I took the old silverware rack from the Kenmore and put in the bottom rack of the Whirlpool. Last, the heating coil is smaller but seems to dry ok. Overall a good value at $550.

    I really like this dishwasher; the internal layout of the racks makes loading it super easy. There is plenty of room for everything. The stainless steel interior always looks great. And it is unbelievable how super quiet it is! I barely know that it is running. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because the dishes aren't as dry as I think they should be. However, this isn't a deal breaker for me and might be due to the environmental concerns. Wish I could award 4.5 stars.

    When my previous dishwasher died, I wanted to purchase a quality machine with some bells and whistles, and this Whirlpool fits the bill. It has an upper shelf that can be raised and lowered, and I find that I can fit more in the machine than my last one. Sometimes my dishes are still a bit wet when the cycle is over, but not every time. Also, the movable utensil holder isn't that sturdy when placed either on the end of the bottom rack, or against the door. But these are minor, and overall I like the dishwasher.

    We bought this brand new for a house we were selling. So we cannot speak on usage. I did test run it without dishes and noticed it didn't dry on normal setting. No big deal; I just cracked open the door and it dries right out (also alleviating a funky smell if closed for a period of time). I recommend leaving it cracked open when not in use. Otherwise, deal with the smell. My recommendation can only be based on the assumption that it washes dishes appropriately.

    I was impressed with the dishwasher after I used it for the first time. The dishes were amazingly clean. I had a little trouble, though with the cutlery basket, in that it moved around a bit when I placed it on the door of the dishwasher instead of on the side. Also, the buttons are very sensitive-when you try to clean the panel where the buttons are, some of them come on inadvertently. Overall, though, it's a good choice-very quiet, too!

    We replaced our 20 yr. old whirlpool dishwasher with this one and so far are very pleased. It is very quiet! Spacious inside and the top rack can be raised or lowered. The only thing I miss is that our old dishwasher had two "on the door" baskets for silverware. This model has 1 silverware basket that can be placed on the door or in the bottom rack. We miss the extra basket as it was perfect for spatulas, etc. Other than that, this is a great dishwasher for the money.

    The dish washer works great. Very Quiet hardly know its even running unless your house is dead silent and your standing within 5 feet of it. Came new in the box, Plastic, didnt pay for the installation so I did it myself which isnt a problem. Come to find out I unboxed and unwrapped it. The Dishwasher had a crease in the door, and a huge dent. Oh well hand washed dishes for about a week. Called Customer Service they replaced it.

    Bought this to match all of my other stainless and black Whirlpool appliances. I was pigeon-holed by the size requirements and this was the only new stainless Whirlpool dishwasher that would fit. We are content with it so far, and it is MUCH quieter than our old one, which is great. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the silverware basket mounted on the inside of the door, but we knew that when we bought it. All in all a good purchase.

    I did a lot of research before purchasing a dishwasher and I found that with this one, the only negative review was about the quality of the drying. I would agree but my dishes are not soaking wet. Once I open the door, they seem to dry better. I have found the dishes to be very clean and the machine is very quiet. Also there is a light to tell you when the dishes are clean after a cycle!

    This seems to be a good dishwasher so far. The utensil rack can be moved from the door to the interior which I prefer (don’t like hearing the clanging of utensils every time you open the door. The slots for utensils is worthless—way too narrow for our set. Other than that it’s very quiet, better than we thought it would be.

    This dishwasher is really quite. My major complaint is the space in which you put larger bowls and pots and pans are not ample enough. I always seem to have water left on dishes, especially the glasses. The dishes never get dry enough I have to towel dry them if I want to put them away immediately after they dry. Also, the buttons are ultra sensitive, they turn the machine on with the slightest touch.

    This product is VERY quiet. My reason for 4 stars vs 5 is because the buttons are on the top of the dishwasher. They are covered to much by my counter. Perhaps it was the installation but it was installed that way so the dishwasher wasn’t sticking out way past the cabinet drawers that are next to it. No complaints about function though.

    This dishwasher is very quite and cleans dishes quite well. Does very well at drying too. The utensil tray cover holes are a bit narrow, so wide flatware does not fit unless you open the covers. Other than that it has performed very well. I have only had it for a month, so time will tell whether it truly lasts without breaking down.

    Installed this on my own after not installing one for 10+ years. Install went super easy and the machine looks great and runs extremely quiet. Only negative is the instructions. Machine has lots of extra padding/packaging on the outside under the washer and instructions do no specify if it needs removed or not. Had to watch a youtube video to determine. By the way it stays in. Otherwise great product.

    After using this dishwasher for a bit, it cleans dishes perfectly. However, the placement of the silverware compartment and size of it could be improved. Sometimes not all the food particles are washed off of the silverware, especially if you a spoons facing the same direction right next to each other. Compartment lacks size for bigger utensils.
