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.

THE QUIETEST MACHINE EVER!
from Mabelvale, AR
Comments about Whirlpool Gold Series Monochromatic Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After putting this dishwasher to the test of both dirt grime and grease together with delicate crystal and china, we were amazed with the results...everything became sparkling clean...the new still looked like new and the old became new again. Thank you Whirlpool!

I purchased this dishwasher just over a year ago. blinking code said control panel has died...woops I did not purchase the extended warranty so I am going to have to replace my whirlpool dishwasher.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The quietest dishwasher!!
from Columbus, OH
I love this dishwasher for the way it cleans and how quiet it is. Quite roomy and provides stemware grids to keep crystal from colliding or use as a double decker shelf for small glasses. The silver ware bins could be a bit larger though.
good working dishwasher
It's been a year and 1/2 since we installed Whirlpool Gold Series Dishwasher and it still working without issues. However, the front panel has developed discoloration and spots even though it was cleaned according to instructions.
from Ashland, va
The dishwasher began leaking shortly after the 1 year warranty expired. But we didn't discover the leak until the heating element failed 24 months after purchase. The leak is due to a faulty seal that should cost only 30 cents for the part but Whirlpool has designed it so that the entire pump will have to be replaced. The pump repair alone will cost over $200 to fix.
Awful, Simply Awful!
from Wellington, FL
We have had this dishwasher for less than 2 yrs. and the only thing positive I can say is that it's quiet. It does not clean well. I've tried the recommended detergent, other detergents, the recommended rinsing agent, no rinsing agent, pre-rinsing and not pre-rinsing. There just is no way to ensure it will clean; sometimes it does and sometimes it leaves a soapy residue and I have to rewash. I'd rather have my old Bosch back.
from Bridgman, MI
We won the dishwasher at a raffle. Just love how much better than our 20 year old one was. The dishes come out clean and dry. Now if I could just figure out all the different cycles. Thank you Whirlpool for making life easier
Bought three months ago, love it! Handles the big pots, utensil basket is easily moved, very quiet.
