The Wife and I did a lot of research and this model seemed to have the best features and performance for our dollar. We liked the front panel controls so you can see what's going on and I've read the top panel models can be affected by steam and fail early. Note: the panel surround at the top is painted plastic and not stainless steel. I'm a tad concerned about the latch mechanism having no button so hope that it doesn't fail early. Also the area around the handle flexes when pulled on, so hopefully doesn't fatigue the control panel. Whirlpool currently leads all competitors on consumer reports for reliability so we are hoping for many years of happy service!

The silverware basket is very strange. It has slots so you should be able to insert your silverware, but they are too narrow. Since most of our silverware doesn't fit, we are thinking either on buying different silverware, different basket, or different dishwasher. The only option you have with this basket is to put the silverware together and that's not a good idea... they can't be cleaned. Another bad thing is when you put the basket on the door: first, my knees hurt every time I place something in the basket. Second, even if you'd have slim silverware, it is kind of difficult to use the side that is under the soap dispenser. Third, when you try to unload your silverware, the basket opens and everything falls.

About Me Casual Cook
This dishwasher is so quiet my husband and I had to keep checking if it was running! It cleans dishes well and and provides ample space for larger items. The utensils basket on the door is a nice idea to provide more space for plates, bowls, and such, but the slots designed to prevent flatware from nesting together are way too small for most utensil stems. It's not necessary to use the slots, but it would make organizing and utilizing the space so much better. Overall, this is a good dishwasher for a good price.

Comments about Whirlpool White Built-In Dishwasher:
It does a great job of getting everything off of the dishes!Extremely quiet!
Works for us
By Aaron D
In general this DW does exactly what we need. My only complaint is the silverware caddy. Its door mounted and is really handy to remove/install but its capacity is a bit too limited for our use (2 kids, 2 parents). It seems that it is full before the trays for plates and bowls are. Its not a major issue but just a nuisance.

About Me Gourmet Chef
We have had several dish washers because we were renting. Each dishwasher was worse than the last. We love the novel idea of a dishwasher cleaning dishes. Glasses come out crystal clear. Racks are logically located and you get extra space by having the silverware holder on the door.
It is so energy efficient that it does not heat the water hot enough to clean the dishes. I run the hot water like it suggested but your wasting water by running it to get HOT water for the dishwasher. To my idea that is wasting water to get efficiency for the dishwasher. From what I was told this is the way they make them now. Don't sound like much of an improvement to me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A little difficult to load, but otherwise fine.

Great product! I would buy it again!

Great all around dishwasher!
good cleaning at energy saving settings
Having had this for a month, it cleans well at "eco" setting with enzyme-based soap (need this type of soap). With no dry cycle, dishes are dry in a few minutes with door open, forks/spoons need towelling off, plastics are wet. I will use these energy saving settings usually.Silverware holder placement is an exercise in compromise. Inside placement you lose space. In door awkward sideways loading. Front of lower rack is not stable, dicy to pull out lower rack. Pick your poison, at least you have a choice.It is decently quiet, but not noiseless. Overall I am satisfied.
I love it!!
