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.

        Comments about Whirlpool Black Portable Dishwasher:

        I needed a new dishwasher, and it HAD to be a Portable Convertible because I don't have kitchen cabinets right now but expect to get them next year. These are very hard to find, and no stores had one on display. I searched the Internet and found that Whirlpool still make them. I went to a store with my Internet print-out, and they were able to order one for me. It took a few days to arrive, but it was really worth the time and effort!!!

        When we ran the first load, unusually dirty water discharged into the kitchen sink! The dishes were noticeably cleaner, and all the coffee and tea stains came out of the cups. With our old dishwasher, we had to bleach the cups by hand to get the stains out. We are using the same dishwasher detergent we always used, so the higher level of cleaning has to be due to the dishwasher itself. This machine has the same outside dimensions as my old one, but it seems bigger on the inside and the configuration definitely holds more dishes than my old one. The Tall Tub feature lets me put large pot lids and my large, hard-to-clean broiler pan in the dishwasher. My husband loves the energy savings with this machine, too. And even though this type of dishwasher is not as quiet as a built-in model, it is much quieter than the other Portable Convertible that it replaced. The top is nice-looking and is a breeze to wipe off if something gets spilled on it. All in all, we are very happy with our new machine and wish we would have gotten it a long time ago.

        For those who don't know the difference in dishwashers, a built-in has to be installed in a cabinet by a plumber since it has to be hooked into the plumbing. A portable is on wheels and always stands alone. You wheel it from one spot to another and hook it up to the kitchen sink faucet. A Portable Convertible is also on wheels and can be rolled from one spot to another and is hooked up to the kitchen faucet. The difference is that a Portable Convertible can be used as a portable but then can be converted to a built-in and installed in kitchen cabinets later. This machine is being used as a portable for now and will be converted to a built-in when we put in kitchen cabinets in a year or so. This is the perfect machine for someone who doesn't have kitchen cabinets at present but expects to install them in the future.

        Oh, and the machine cost less than our other dishwashers (we have had four in the last thirty years). When I ordered it, the store was giving 10% off on most appliances. It's not often that you can get a good kitchen appliance for less than what it costs ten years ago!

              This dishwasher replaced a smaller portable one. The casters are high quality; moving it to the sink when full is easier than I expected. It's doing a great job getting the dishes clean. The new energy-saving standards result in a long washing cycle, but it's nice that the option for a faster cycle is there.
