Had a few hiccups getting it going (leaked at first), then they stood behind their product and repaired it at no charge. I love it, moves about easily, can move it with one hand.

The big tub is awesome, you can put taller things on the top rack, and very tall items on the bottom rack. I've been lazy and not pre-rinsed the dishes before loading the dishwasher, and they STILL came out clean, I love it!

I sell appliances for a living, and was replacing a 12 yr old Maytag portable. The Maytag did a great job, I was totally satisfied with it's performance and longevity.I have no choice but to have a portable, I would much prefer a built in. Having said that, the pool of models available is slim.
I chose the Whirlpool because we floor it at my store. I was not thrilled with the fact that there is no spray arm in the top of the tub as the Maytag had, and my concerns were proven true. This thing does a lousy job on the top rack, leaving deposits on the indentations of cups, etc. I washed a greasy pan ( normal grease nothing extraordinary) and when the cycle was done, everything especially the dishes in the top were greasy. I had to run the cycle again, this time on Pots & Pans cycle to get everything clean.
Most manufacturers boast about and advise against washing or rinsing dishes before placing in the dishwasher, with this Whirlpool, it is a necessity.
The dishwasher does a lousy job on anything with any amount of dried foodstuffs. Again based on performance of my old Maytag, dishes with dried on food or partially dry, came clean all the time. I've found that my breakfast oatmeal dishes always have to be hand washed after a cycle in this machine. So, what's the point?
The options I had were Maytag, Whirlpool and GE. I'm thinking now I may have been better off with a GE.
If you like washing dishes before washing dishes, if you never cook anything greasy, then this machine is for you.
Needless to say, I won't be recommending this machine to customers.

        I've had this for about 6 weeks. The dishes come out clean and mostly dry. The longer wash does a better job, but takes two and a half hours from start to finish, so I use the one hour wash. Does a great job!

                          I bought a replacement for my 20 year old Whirlpool portable dishwasher. The new one is much quitter than my old one was when it was new.
                          The baskets are now larger than the old one.

                                First of all, we purchased this unit sight-unseen because the metal racks are coated with nylon instead of plastic.
                                But, that is where the positives stop.
                                I am very disappointed with this recent purchase mainly because it cleans no better than our old one. Each load has something that did not get cleaned. Once, a mason jar with spaghetti sauce looked like it did after I poured the sauce into the pan. Not a bit was clean and it was placed on the bottom rack in the corner.
                                The silverware holder is 2/3 the size of our previous dishwasher and I feel that it is too shallow because if we are not careful the knives and forks hit the edge of the opening as we slide the rack in to close the door. In other words the utensils lean too far instead of standing more erect.
                                Another design flaw is in regards to the soap dispenser lid. If we are not careful and try to close the door to the washer with the bottom rack sticking out, the rack will catch the open soap dispenser lid. It's just a matter of time before we have a problem.
                                There are no cycle indicator lights.
                                I don't feel that much practicality was designed into the appliance.

                                      We bought this 3 weeks ago and have run it 4 or 5 times. We are still having problems with getting some dishes clean. We also have a gritty film on "clean" dishes even though we are using the same dishwasher soap and rinse aid that came with it. We don't like not being able to track the progress of the wash cycle.

                                                  I purchased this about a month ago, and I use it almost daily! My dishes have never been so clean. It is very portable and compact for convenience! Excellent purchase with NO regrets!

                                                        I bought this a couple of months ago and am very pleased with it. My old one went out a ouple of years ago and I was doing dishes by hand. I wished I wouldn't have waited so long to get a new one.I absolutely love, love, love it.

                                                              This machine is so quite, we can run it while having dinner.
