Our "good" rating assumes you have checked that your silverware will fit in the holder (see comments below). The dishwasher seems solid and well constructed. Even with the energy saving features it cleans very well. The cycle time is somewhat longer than our previous washer, but this is not a problem for us. The unit is extremely quiet, which is nice. The dry feature works well, but we found we could skip it and let the dishes air dry with the door opened a small amount. An issue we are still coping with is the generic, equally spaced tines in the racks. There is little flexibility in the way to arrange dishes. The upper rack has room for one row of bowls in the center with glasses and mugs on the sides. The bottom rack can only hold one row of dinner dishes in the central area. There is no good place for large casserole dishes and pans. If you place them at the back, the dinner dishes are pushed forward making it impossible to load anything other than very small dishes in front of them. Some of the higher priced models have more flexible rack setups that would probably resolve this. The big disappointment is the silverware holder, which is nearly useless for us, as the slots are too narrow in two of the three rows to hold our very average sized silverware. If we hadn't saved the holder from our previous dishwasher (and been fortunate enough that it fit in the rack of this one), this purchase would have been a disaster. Be sure you check for this problem before purchasing this model.

Fantastic cleaning on pots, baked-on food, etc. I like the several options for washing cycles & choosing delay. However: Silverware feature has a clumsy handle which interferes with loading & removal of two central sections; all dividers have gaps large enough to trap silverware, again making removal difficult, yet dividers are not tall enough to keep all silverware upright. None of the prongs on either shelf are moveable (upright or lay-down) to allow for better loading of larger or odd-shape items. Door hinge/spring too tight, causing door to pull upward and thrust lower shelf (even when somewhat loaded) back into the washer. Soap dispenser cover does not click shut easily, often requiring two hands (one to hold the door flat and the other to manually latch the dispenser cover). Other than cleaning quality (which is excellent) this is not an easy dishwasher to love.

About Me Avid Cook
Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:
Got this to replace an old dishwasher in our kitchen that was a disaster. It is VERY quiet and cleans dishes quite well but my old dishwasher seemed to hold more dishes. The 1 hour cycle is wonderful, as is the overnight.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent dishwasher for the price
About Me Casual Cook
Dishwasher works great and looks sharp. Doesn't completely dry l items in dishwasher, but most things are ready to unload when the cycle is completed. I would recommend this dishwasher to others.

The Abt delivery was on time, the guys worked quick and brought the unit right in the kitchen. I recommend Abt but not the dishwasher.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This dishwasher works quickly, quietly, and effectively.
from Tooele, UT
We love how quiet our dishwasher is and how clean the dishes are. We have also liked the window to see when we are low on the jet blue fluid.
The inside could be a larger
from Oviedo, FL
I like the features as they make the machine easy to use even without the manual. The outside stainless steel keeps its shine with very little maintenance. However, the size on the inside is smaller than it would appear on the outside. By the time a few things are loaded, the machine is full.
Best dishwasher so far
This is the best dishwasher we've owned so far. We really enjoy the quietness of the dishwasher and can have it run while entertaining or watching TV with a kitchen that opens to the great room. The delay, over night end energy saving modes are great and still produce clean dishes. Overall a great dishwasher.
The dishwasher works great has many options of how you want to things cleaned but everything has been clean no matter what we pick. I love that it has a light that tells me the dishes are clean no more guessing.
Quit and cleans great !!! easy to install !! I do recomend

Quality, Brand Reputation and Simplicity!
Who really wants to shop for a new dishwasher? It is one of our little luxuries in life. With so many choices out there, how do you decide? Well, for starters, if you only remember one thing, remember this - know what YOU want your dishwasher to do and shop for one that performs THOSE tasks! There are so many brands and so many features (many that I find frivolous), that you have to shop for YOUR NEEDS! For me, I was looking for Quality, Brand Reputation and Simplicity...pretty simple requirements. I shopped and compared...oh boy, did I shop and compare! For what I was looking for - WASH, DRY, SANITIZE and NYLON covered rack surfaces - this was just right for the price! I don't care about the "eco" settings or even the "1-hour wash," "Over-night wash" or delay feature (although I have used this once or twice and it is pretty nifty!) :) The only difference between this one and the "Gold" version is the stainless steel tub - mine does NOT have this. I did NOT want it due to hard water and the staining that can occur in these, not to mention I have heard rumors they will melt any plastic or tupperware type items you put in there. Oh and the buttons may be on the top, but I didn't care about this. I could not be happier with my choice and I compared MANY brands - some costing much more. My dishes are finally sparkling clean! I do use Quantum tabs, a liquid gel for pre-wash and a rinse aid. It is not totally unaudible but it is super quiet! We have a Kitchen/Family room concept (dishwasher about 10 feet from closest seating surface) and it is not a sound issue at all! Sure, you can hear it running, but it is not annoying at all. My two fish tank filters in the family room are lounder - as a comparison. Honestly, my ONLY con ~ I wish it could remember my choice of wash settings - Normal + High-Temp Wash + Sani-Rinse + High Heat Dry (see, told you I didn't care about the eco settings) - when a cycle is complete but I have to push these 4 buttons every time. Oh well! No real biggie. Love it! Made the right decision - for me! Highly recommend!
