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 only had my Whirlpool dishwasher for about a month but it's been a godsend. I no longer have dirty dishes in the sink until I have to wash them. I just turn on the dishwasher and forget about my dirty dishes!

              We've had this for about 2 months and I'm loving it. My husband is visually impaired so stays home and cares for the house. Despite his manly don't care if it's rinsed proper and can't see if it is attitude the dishes still come out clean. I no longer feel I have to rewash dishes prior to use. It's amazing.

                    Comments about Whirlpool Black Portable Dishwasher:

                    I bought this dishwasher a month ago to replace a rather aged Maytag that I really liked and was sorry to see beginning to need more and more repairs. To my surprise, I like this Whirlpool even better. It's quieter, a bit narrower and two inches taller. The inside is more compactly and efficiently designed than my old Maytag, so I can actually fit more dishes into it. The silverware placement on the side is much more convenient, as it leaves most of the bottom rack open, not chopped up, as my Maytag with the center-placed silverware rack was. All in all, I think this Whirlpool is a real improvement.

                          Great machine. No nead to read the manual - a monkey could set it up and operate it - very intuitive. Does a better job of cleaning than most I've used. I thought it was going to be a pain to deal with the hose connection but it's really simple and painless. Wheels easily across the floor, doubles as extra counter space, and parks nearly flat against a wall. Just a tad noisier than I'd like, but I think that comes with the vigorous cleaning ability. The door has a friction hinge so it doesn't snap back up when you don't expect it to. Very straightforward pushbutton panel.

                                We have had this dishwasher a little over a month and are very pleased with our choice. We wanted sparkling clean dishes. We did not need the frills or plate warmers or such. Dishes, baking pans even pots come out sparkling. They recommend cascade platinum and it really seems to clean the dishes better than other brands. The capacity is great and we have four adults in our household and enjoy cooking, therefore make a good amount of dishes. The hookup is a snap and it moves on its casters smoothly. And the filter area is easily accessible. We have absolutely no complaints with this product. And that says alot!

                                      We are very happy with our Whirlpool dishwasher. I use the 1 hour cleaning and the dishes come out spotless. This dishwasher is amazingly quiet. I run it in the evening and we watch TV in the next room. Of course you can hear it, but the dishwasher is not noisy!

                                                        This is the BEST dishwasher I've ever had! Easy to use, easy to move, easy on energy consumption and a LOT more room to load dishes! Plus, extra top counter space, too! I'm very happy with my new Whirlpool dishwasher and have absolutely no regrets!

                                                              Was a replacement for my older Whirlpool Portable Dishwasher, purchased from Robard's, Piqua OH., some twenty five years ago. Bearing started to go bad and thought it time to get another one. Sincerely hope this one is as good as the first one. Very pleased with the cleaning and programming. do miss the timer dial, that was on the older unit, as I used it to skip some functions at times.
                                                              Seems like a good value for the money. Recommend you consider purchasing this Dishwasher.
