I updated all my appliances and decided to spend more money on the range and fridge and not worry about spending so much on the dishwasher since they are all pretty much alike. I was pleasantly surprised. This dishwasher cleanes the dishes perfectly, even getting out that horrible white film on my glasses that my previous washer could not. There is so much space since the flatware basket is on the door. The design is beautiful with its sleek and clean lines. The best thing I love about this machine is the timer. I can load the dishwasher and set its timer to have it run while we're asleep. (Big plus in the summer!) It is not as quiet as I had hoped but that's a minor inconvenience. Besides, if I'm running it while we're asleep we don't hear it anyway! This is a great machine for the money.

CONS:Have owned less than 8 mo. and it does not clean the dishes. We thoroughly rinse and scrape the dishes before-hand and it still doesn't help. It is only the two of us, and my wife cooks one meal a day, so the DW is loaded to about half its capacity. Using the best detergent doesn't help .To get half a load clean, we have to use the heaviest and hottest settings.The lightest cycle runs 2 hours.The flatware rack is in the door - the bottom rack rolls out on top of it. To load flatware, push the rack back in. To load plates, pull it back out. Only other solution - put the flatware basket in the sink for loading.PROS:It is quite and spacious inside.

Adequate but Loud
from Tampa, FL
Comments about Whirlpool Universal Silver Tall Tub Dishwasher:
This was the dishwasher the builder included with our house when we bought it 3 1/2 years ago. It's adequate. It cleans dishes pretty well, except for the really stuck on stuff but we're constantly having to rewash flatware because it didn't get clean in the rack. My biggest problem is that it's LOUD. I've got an open concept first floor and I always have to crank up the TV volume while it's running. It was ok as a starter dishwasher but I'm ready to upgrade to something quieter and more energy effcient.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

No rinsing required. Love the delay feature. I can fill it to the brim and the dishes come out shining.
It cleans great...when it works.

Purchased and installed in August 2010, the unit has worked fine for the past 4 years. Then it quit. Maybe it's a circuit board. The technician will have to solve that problem. Will cost over $200 to repair. I would think Whirlpool could manufacture a product that would work longer than 51 months.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This dishwasher came with our house, which was built 4 years ago. It is great at removing most food and drink particles. In the past couple of months it has started to have problems though. It stops before they cycle has completed so it is left with water in the bottom. According to the repair man this is due to the control board needs to be replaced.
whirlpool failure to satisfy
after less than two years of use, i replaced both circuit board and soap dispenser. i still need to replace friction pad which keeps door from coming up when one wants to load or empty the machine.
A good mid-range dishwasher
I am pretty satisfied with my purchase! I can't really complain about anything in particular, but at the same time I'm not blow away by it either. It certainly isn't one of those super fancy dishwashers, it is a nice simple mid-range dishwasher that does what it suppose to. I am happy with it and it is great dishwasher for the money!

Very satisfied with dishwasher. Would recommend to everyone.
from Westminster, MD
I am amazed at how quietly this dishwasher performs. When my husband and I first used it, we questioned whether we had turned it on properly. However, it was on and all the dishes came out spotless.
from Riverview, FL
The washer is very good and cleans very well. The racks are very versatile and allow for easy loading and unloading. The features are very nice and work well. The only downside is the unit is a little loud. It is in an open floor plan house and I use the delay start feature as it is a little louder than I would like. Overall a great product.
this product is awesome
from wALDORF, mARYLAND
this dishwasher is ultra quiet, reliable and easy to load. water is distributed evenly so no dishwasher cleaner residue is left behind. i can load the utensils in the removable tray without hurting my back! and i can watch the game in the kitchen while it is working. all my kitchen appliances are Whirlpool and will be until the day i die. my relatives recommended this brand after decades of use and dependability. i am a first time homebuyer and the first thing i did was replace my aplliances. now i need a compact washer/dryer to complete the set. very satisfied!!
