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.

Poor Build quality
By Very Disappointed Buyer
Comments about Whirlpool Gold Series Monochromatic Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.

Well engineered, cleans well even on the short cycle. Oh, did i say it was "quiet"?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Quiet & efficient
Had this for 2 years, great unit! Quiet & efficient. Cleans well with dishwasher cleaning bottles, filter is easy to remove ; clean.
By Lance & Kim
3 years in, and still loving this easy-to-use dishwasher. Handles the heavy workload of family of 5. We often need to do two loads a day. Sensor feature makes it easy. Once in a while the water jet holes in the spray arms may get clogged with food...but the arms are easily removable to clean out. Filter also easy to clean. Love the stainless steel tub. Compared to our old dishwasher: no contest.
Not what I expected
By Bob the Jumper
from Tampa, FL
I've owed Whirlpool appliances since 1983 and have been so happy with them all - until we replaced our dishwasher with a very expensive Gold Series. It is quiet, that's for sure. It is "high end" with many features, but sadly the adjustable dish racks have cheap clips that began falling off the top rack before the dishwasher was three months old. How did we notice this? They fell off and melted to the heating element. Definitly a pain to find the right clips since they melted and were in the bottom of the dishwasher for probably several washes before they melted and burned. Three on the top and one on the bottom. As for the drying feature, it worked great for the first month, now whilst still not yet six months old, our dishes are still dripping wet after the drying cycle. I'd say if you want to replace your dishwasher, go for a Samsung or LG. At least it won't cost so much. This DW was almost $700.00.

We were pleased to buy a dishwasher with a stainless steel tub, however, our Gold Series Whirlpool has been nothing, if not a royal pain. The gasket around the tub will not stay in place. We have had certified repairmen replace it, we have replaced it several times ourselves, and at this point, we simply stick it back in place whenever it comes out. It is an unacceptable situation and our new dishwasher--NOT a Whirlpool product!--will be installed this weekend.
Does not drain well
from Galena, Illinois
Purchased this dishwasher in July of 2015. Wanted one with a stainless interior and quieter than my last whirlpool. Cleans dishes well and is very quiet, but this is the 2nd time period that it does not drain completely. I have had a myriad of Whirlpool dishwashers over the years. Some I have had for 10+ years and they ALWAYS drained. This one, not so much and it is a pain to drag the guy out to fix it. There is a flaw in the way it is installed and that little check valve should be in an easier place to clean.

Bought this dishwasher in November 2012 to replace a 20 year old machine. We went for a Gold series machine thinking it would be a better model.It started leaking through the diverter last week. We caught it before it did too much damage to the floor.I called Whirlpool to find who they would recommend for service. The serviceman showed up and confirmed that it leaked where I told him it did, but that he did not have the part ,would have to order it and come back to install it. This incurred an additional labor charge. One would think Whirlpool would recommend a company that carries the parts needed for a repair.I notice that the original part has been discontinued. Is this because of failures in the field?
