We're a couple who does HUGE amounts of web research before we make a purchase, but what with this being a fairly new product, there wasn't much to be found. It came highly recommended by our dealer, though, so we went ahead and took the plunge.This is, by far, the best kitchen appliance I've ever purchased. Capacity is amazing - you can get VERY BIG stuff in this dishwasher. Cleaning is great - especially compared with our old unit, which left crud inside many bowls and glasses. But really, you couldn't ask for any better in the cleaning quality department. We do now use a rinse aid, which is pretty much essential with the stainless interior which, by the way, retains heat better and, yes, looks very cool. After a short while, some soap film has appeared near the bottom-front of the tub, but that's easily wiped away.The repositionable silverware basket is a real boon. It fits up against the inside of the door, buying back a substantial amount of space from the lower rack.As far as the noise level goes, we joke to each other that the sound of it is deafening, and cover our ears in mock distress. This is because, as advertised, it?s a VERY quiet dishwasher. You can pretty much only hear it when it?s either intaking water for the wash, or draining it at the end of a cycle. I?ve gone to start it only to realize that my spouse already has it running.One thing you should know: this unit is not fast. It takes at least a couple of hours to do a load of dishes. That?s a result of the energy-saving properties of the design. It does, however, have a one-hour wash mode, and for moderately soiled dishes, i.e., just glasses and plates, this works great.Overall, I can?t recommend this product highly enough. One thing I wish to share: We purchased our appliances (we built a new house, so needed everything) from a local business, and yes, probably paid about 10% more than at Sears or a big-box store, but we chose to keep the money in our community. And having our service people just a few miles away, and happy to answer questions, etc. has been very helpful. 10% for dealer nearby who cares if you buy from them again is a bargain, in my book. Buy this dishwasher!

First the good parts. The dishwasher looks nice in the kitchen, is very quiet, and washes the dishes very well. From those aspects we are very satisfied.The negative parts.1. The top rack seems to be designed for a certain set of dishes, but certainly not ours. Our old Maytag dishwasher held the bowls and glasses nicely. With the new Whirlpool there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to all the angles of the rack so we can't nest the dishes. The result is the top rack doesn't handle as many dishes as the old Maytag, since they are basically jumbled.2. No rinse cycle. Again, the old Maytag had a rinse cycle which was handy if we were only loading a few dishes to wash the next day. We get around this by setting the microwave timer to 4 minutes. When the timer beeps we hit the stop/drain button on the dishwasher.3. The slots in the silverware basket covers are too small for our silverware set, so we wind up jumbling them together.Bottom line, if were to purchase another dishwasher, we would not purchase this one.

Nope. Hunk of junk.

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Series Monochromatic Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
Had problems from day one. The smell at the beginning was so terrible it stunk up the whole house for weeks and there was small rust spots in stainless steel inside under the door. After repair guy came it worked well for about a year or so until the control handle broke and now lifts up every time you open it just as another reviewer described.Now after about 2 years the thing barely cleans the dishes anymore. It's like it doesn't rinse the soap properly and there's often a film and I'm going through rinse aid like crazy.I don't understand why things are built to throw away nowadays. Honestly if I got five years out of it fine but two years is ridiculous.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Piece of JUNK
from Grand Blanc, MI
I purchased this about 6 months ago. Very disappointed, I'm not a complainer just telling you the way it is, I had a GE disherwasher for 12 years with a family of 7 had no problems till the motor finally died. Then i bought this whirlpool sales guy recommend this, boy what a mistake. It takes 3 hours to run through normal cycle. dishes are never dried. I email and talked to customer service and told me that the way its designed. water pump keeps jamming up lucky I'm a diy or this thing would cost a fortune in repairs. Saving my money up so I can junk this and buy another GE dishwasher.
first dishwasher we bought!
from Chalmette, LA
when it worked it was great but just a year after installing and it stopped draining the water. it did sit in storage for about year and half before installing while i was recinstructing the house before i installed it.SO far have changed the drain hose, and drain pump and still will not drain no i'm changing the control board to see what happens.After this experience i don't know if i'll go back to whirlpool if this control board doesn't work. I'll probably buy another brand

Handle / Control Panel broke after a year of use
We bought our dishwasher about 2 years ago and it worked really well until about 6-8 months ago. It actually still works but every time you pull it open the control panel pops out of the slots it is connected in. After further inspection I found that the plastic brackets that connect the control panel / handle to the door had broken. Very poor design to have the latch and handle as part of the control panel especially with a latch that is designed to be pulled to release. Now I have to have the entire control panel replaced. We spent a lot of money on this dishwasher and expected it to last.

Poor Build quality
By Very Disappointed Buyer
Owned less than 2 years and the dishwasher has stopped spraying water (bad pump?). Also, after about 9-10 months, the "stainless steel" finish showed signs of pitting/rusting, forcing us into an every-other-day cleaning maintenance regimen with specialty products. It did run quiet while it was still working.
from Crooked Creek
I bought this dishwasher (in black) in April 2014. In the first two years I owned it, the control panel and the motor each had to be replaced twice under warranty. The motor failed again in October 2016, out of warranty. It would have cost more to fix than to replace, so it's been replaced.I wasn't all that thrilled with this dishwasher when it worked. It was quiet, and it did get the dishes reasonably clean. But most of the slots in the silverware basket were too small for my silverware, and there wasn't adequate space for spatulas, turners, ice-cream scoops, etc. Loading the top rack was awkward--cups and bowls didn't quite fit either on or between the prongs.My previous Whirlpool Gold dishwasher lasted 12 years, making me even more disappointed in the poor quality of the WDF750SAY.
Quiet, easy to use.
from S E US
Well engineered, cleans well even on the short cycle. Oh, did i say it was "quiet"?
I am pleased with Whirlpool. I have had one for years.

I am replacing an old Whirlpool dishwasher that gave great service for more than 12 years
Waste of money
from Wilmington, NC
2.5 years old control board went out. Only works about every 5 times. A new board installed is $325. I will be buying a Bosch instead of fixing. I never liked the silverware tray. It was quiet though.
