I have had this dishwasher a little over 3 months and let me tell you how amazed i am with the quality, style and performance. All my dishes seem to sparkle as if they were all brand new, no matter what detergent i use, i get the same, perfect results. I have been through a few "other" brand dishwashers that left my dishes, cloudy, dirty, didnt clean the finger or mouth prints off the glasses. I was glad to come across this well built Whirlpool dishwasher, it was really affordable to. This dishwasher saved me time and energy, no more hand pre washing the dishes. I promise you, you will not be dissapointed with this Whirlpool dishwasher!

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.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:
This dishwasher is the most ridiculous thing since Vanilla Ice. This is not a dishwasher it is simply a rinser or mister. It rarely cleans any of my dishes and when it does it either leaves resin of soap or puddles of water and most of the time there is still food on the silverware. Don't even get me started on the loading rack it is horrible. Come on I can design a better dishwasher than this, does it take rocket science to develop a dishwasher that actually cleans and dries your dishes?!? The dishwasher.. Wait let me rephrase that the machine (because it don't do no dishwashing) has 5 time cycles but they all do the same thing even at an 8 hour cycle of constant washing my dishes were still dirty .. It's either my dishes are really dirty or your so called dishwasher is really horrible and I hate to break it to you Whirlpool but I think it might be that your dishwasher awful. It is not energy efficient, I'd rather wash all the dishes by hand than wait 2 hours and have to wash them when they come out of the dishwasher. Biggest waste of money ever! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO HAVE CLEAN DISHES .. 0/10
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pump quit a year and a half in
Not the best dishwasher I ever had. Only lasted a year and a half. The pump already quit.It is quiet and got the dishes clean. Not durable.
Reliable and quiet.
By Tarzan the Brave
Reliable and works. Quiet. The silverware tray is a little flimsy and comes undone sometimes when it shouldn't. Overall, a steady and solid performer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Positive notes: Super quietstainless steel tub a plus buttons hidden on topNegative notes: The filtration system must be cleaned regularly or you will end up with a god awful smell, never had a DW smell that badly.Dishes must be pre rinsed and scrubbed well prior to placing them in the dishwasher.The wash cycles take forever from the minimum 1.5 hours to the max 7 hours.Does not dry completely so you have to leave the door ajar overnight to keep from mildew growth.Hate the resume button, it doesn't seem to work all of the time. It should know that you interrupted a cycle and automatically resume.

I bought this 3 years ago, and it's been just okay since. It cleans the dishes (as long as you hand wash the stuck-on food off first), but it doesn't dry them well. We use a drying aid, but the dishes still come out wet. I wish there was a "DRY ONLY" cycle so that I could shake off the excess water and send them back in to re-dry, but there isn't. Our old dishwasher had that, at least. Also, now our detergent dispenser cup doesn't pop open during the wash, so we have to replace it. I like that it's stainless steel and that the buttons are hidden from plain sight. But next time, I'll do a little bit more research on dishwasher brands and check out the reviews before I purchase. Apparently, this detergent dispenser cup issue is common.
Cleaner than I get them
By Grace & Meracy
Love, love, love the new dishwasher. Our old one had been out of commission for awhile. The dishes are cleaner than when washed by hand!
Functional but easily stained
I bought this in June of 2014. Having had almost 2 years of experience with it, I can positively say that I've had zero mechanical problems. The only complaint I do have is limited to how easily the "Stainless Steel" stains: Fingerprints and water stains are the main culprits that result in stains. Be prepared to clean the surface often depending on how heavily you use your dishwasher.
Would NOT recommend this dishwashwer.
from Pitt Meadows, BC
The utensil basket is located on the door, poor design. Utensils are always wet and not always clean. The bottom tray gets caught on the utensil basket. The stacked plates fall over like a domino effect too easily. Every member of our family has commented on how they do not like this product. Disappointed with this purchase. P.S. I typically don't review products, but thought I should share this.
I bought this dishwasher for our new home. It looks great in my kitchen but I am very unsatisfied with the way it washes. The 3hr program takes more than 3hrs and the silverware never comes out clean. My last dishwasher was way cheaper and cleaned better.We took the silverware tray out of the door with hopes that it would come out cleaner but no better results. I wish I could have returned it.
