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.

        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.

                                I was excited about a new dishwasher since my old one decided to quit working. we got it installed our selves, I started using it but was not happy that it did not work right. after I called the service center to talk to them about it . they sent out a service person to look at it. we figured out it was how we installed it. and now it works like new.

                                            We purchased this dishwasher a month ago. The most important thing is that it clearly gets the dishes clean! However, we are disappointed that the machine is noisy, the tops of glasses are wet at the end of the cycle, and the space provided for drinking glasses is too snug to fit on the upper rack.

                                                  great product rolls easily out of the way when not in use, cleans as well as or better than some builtins I have had

                                                        I chose this dishwasher because of all the good reviews. No ones mentions that it does not dry your dishes. They come out wet every time even on high heat and using the rinse agent and the detergent they sent. My water is set at a pretty good temp so I don't worry about sanitation, but it erks me to no end to have to dry my dishes by hand even after I start the dishwasher before a 10 hours shift and put them up after. It says on the dishwasher door " Use Rinse Aid and select Heat Dry option for best drying results", why would they say that if they didn't know about a problem with drying. Otherwise, sturdy, rolls well, construction seems very good #the detergent holder is a little flimsy#. I have not tried the hour wash, just normal with regular drying and high heat drying. It is black all around unlike some dishwashers. Unlike built-in dishwasher the door doesn't get to the lowest point and stay there it wants to pop back up. My built-in door was heavy enough to stay down. Also a little noisy but not horrible. I find it a little pricey considering it doesn't dry dishes. I'm not going to return it but when it goes will be buying another brand that actually dries your dishes. Hope this helps someone tried to cover most any question I had before buying.

                                                              I went on line with a whirlpool representative and wanted to know exactly what side the hose was on my new dishwasher was. She told me it was going to be on the left hand side as you faced it. I asked her twice. She again told me yes. When the dishwasher arrived, it was in the middle. I bought this dishwasher based on the fact I would not have to move it every time I used it. Now I have to move it. ARG!!!.

                                                              As far as the dishwasher is concerned it is great! I love the quiet, I love the cycles and naturally I love the fact I do not have to wash dishes any longer.

                                                              I would recommend the dishwasher to the general public however, I would not recommend using any part of the customer service area of whirlpool. I am very disppointed in that. Very disappointed.
