To start, we were replacing a GE Nautilus, which was a very low end contractors grade dishwasher. While shopping around, we considered a wide variety of makes, models and prices.

We found this dishwasher at hhgregg and compared it to a somewhat similar GE Adora at Home Depot (that we very nearly bought). In the end, we chose the Whirlpool and we are glad that we did.

I installed the unit myself, someone with less than average diy skills. I had to install a new water tap to match the difference in size of the existing water line vs the new line, which wasn't a problem. Total installation time was about 90 minutes, and that was taking my time. My only beef with the installation was that Whirlpool does not include the 90 elbow which is required for installation.

In the end, we chose this product based on the door located silverware basket, design, and features.

In use, the dishwasher is extremely quiet, has a very large capacity, and cleans extremely well. Cycle times are somewhat on the long side, but its ok knowing that the dishes will be clean or sanitized. We use the sensor cycle, which automatically adjusts the cleaning cycle based on how clean or dirty the dishes are.

All in all a great product and value.

We spent several hours on the floor, after doing a fair amount of research on line, trying to decide on a dishwasher. This one seemed comparable to the best of the rest - with up-to-date features and quiet operation.

The top rack washing feature seemed like an excellent idea. Since there are just two of us, it made sense to have the option to wash just a few dishes.

What finally decided me was the appearance of the Whirlpool. It truly is an elegant design - clean lines, uncluttered face -- sleek! I didn't want to see buttons, controls, lights on the front panel. Whirlpool hid them all - and provided a useful handle as well.

I would never have predicted how difficult it is to load, how poor was the design of the interior. We were replacing an eleven year old, bottom of the line competitor's appliance that seemed years in advance of this new Whirlpool in ease of loading and intuitive placement of dishes.

It may work well for others; perhaps I just have a difficult time deciding what goes where. But even though I was careful never to stack the dishes too closely, I have had chips -- something that never happened before.

I would miss the attractive design and exterior presentation, but if I could exchange this for something else, I would.

The worst dishwasher ever!

By 

from Middletown,Delaware

I have had this dishwasher for 4 years and have hated from the beginning. Not only does it not clean the silverware properly (and yes I rinse everything) the silverware falls sideways in the caddy. I have had two leaks, the first a year ago ruined my floors and they needed replacing too. Now a year later and it is leaking I the same spot. Time to purchase another dishwasher. It won't be a Whirpool!

Ok but not 100% happy

By 

from The Villages, Fl

Verified Buyer

This came with the home I purchased in The Villages, FL. It's ok. To me, doesn't do any better than the one I had at my old home that was installed 3-4 years ago. Did the job but not so great with non-presoaked bake ware. As long as I used Jet Dry glasses come out clean. Now the Whirlpool Gold frig. is worst than their dishwasher. I have had problems with that since day one and continuing as of the day.

Has not met our expectations!

By 

from Bloomfield Hills, MI

Verified Buyer

We bought our Whirlpool dishwasher 2 1/2 years ago. About a month ago it suddenly stopped working. After the repairman made 3 trips over 4 weeks and $332 it's finally working. The repairman even asked if we wanted him to fix it or just buy a new one!!?? Sadly disappointed that a reputable appliance manufacturer can't build a dishwasher that lasts more than a couple of years. Our last dishwasher was a Maytag that lasted 15 years with never a repair, we only replaced it because it was white and we were replacing all of the other appliances in stainless steel. If this is how long Whirlpool products are expected to last, I'll never buy another one.

14 Months - Toast.

By 

from New Hampshire

I bought it 14 months ago but it's been in storage 6 months. Reinstalled it in the same location 3 months ago. Two nights ago it sounds like the transmission has rocks in it. Checked everyplace inside I could fine. Trouble shooting guide was next to useless. Very quite and cleaned well when it worked. Silverware tray in the door - bad idea. Doesn't clean well. I'm glad I got it as a close-out price + GI discount. 12 mo warranty, 14 month life, 6 month working life. Add that up how you like. Me? JUNK.
Features? Top buttons were easier than previous washer. Add a display for time remaining would be nice. The "Done" light should go out when you first open the door after it really finishes. Having it stay ON all the time makes it pretty useless.

Love this dishwasher.. the top rack wash option is economical and so handy when glasses, cups and bowls are all you have to wash..It runs so quietly that you almost don't know it's running -unless you listen for it. Just love the stainless steel inside.. Very happy with this purchase
