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.

Comments about Whirlpool White Built-In Dishwasher:
We have had this dishwasher for almost 2 years and really like it. The best thing about the machine is it is incredibly quiet. You really hardly know it's running. The performance has been great. The only detail I wish I could change is it doesn't seem to be possible to turn off the drying cycle if you prefer to just let everything air dry to save on electricity.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It does what it is suppose to do. I clean everything in it: pots, plates, tupperwares, glass, etc. I mostly use the ECO mode and it cleans everything. I never use the dryer, so it runs quite energy efficiently.

I bought this a month ago and I love it. I had to upgrade from a Samsung dishwasher and I have noticed such a huge difference with the cleanliness of dishes and the noise level.

I bought my Whirlpool stainess steel tub dishwasher about two weeks ago. The next day after it was installed I asked my husband when we were going to try it out and to my surprise he said it's washing right now. It did not make one single sound the last one I had sounded like a freight train. And also the stainless steel tub does make a difference with the heat retention. Thanks Whirpool for a great purchase.
Leaking from door 14 months after purchase

I usually buy Bosch but this time money was tight and I thought I would try Whirlpool. It is quiet enough. Cycle as long as a Bosch's, but how disappointing when water started pouring out of the left front corner of the the door. After Googling it, I found that it is quite common. Whirlpool said they would cover parts and service as a courtesy because it was 2 months out of warranty, but still. I will be without the use of my dishwasher for over 2 weeks if it can be fixed the day of my appointment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This dishwasher is quite,works well and pretty easy to install
Not what we expected
from Markham ontario Canada
We were expecting a high quality dishwasher but overall it was less than ok. Cleaning below average and drying is horrible. We got a technician to take a look at it last week and for cleaning part he gave us an advice how to keep cleaning the 2 water jet because they get dirt in between openings. But as for drying the only way to get dry dishes is to keep putting them without water rinsing for 6 weeks in order for dishwasher to eventually dry dishes completely. Somehow it doesn't make sense. As for cleaning cycles it takes between 1:30 minutes up to 5 hrs depends on cycle chosen. Wouldn't recommend this product.
Rating after 14 months of ownership: POOR
from South Jersey
When I first got this machine it looked great, worked well, very quiet. I have had the service man out twice under the 1 year warranty and now that I'm 2 months of our warranty its not working again. My mom's whirlpool is 10 years old and still works, never been serviced. This one is a joke. I ran the diagnostic cycle and got a code which does not correspond to my problem at all. I checked the parts exactly as prescribed without finding the cause of the issue. Naturally Whirlpool will not assist at this point so I'm looking for a new dishwasher...guess which brand it won't be.
THE QUIETEST MACHINE EVER!
from Mabelvale, AR
This DW replaced a vintage model and we have been sooooooooo happy with the new Whirlpool. Not only does it do an excellent job of cleaning, it is so quiet that one has to check to make sure it is running. We are very pleased.
