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.

This dishwasher has been great so far. No need to rinse the dishes before using this dishwasher. Many of our friends pre-wash their dishes before putting in their more expensive dishwashers. Why have a dishwasher then? This unit has worked great for us. Excellent value for the money.
Cleans well,is so quite,
looks great,is so quiet,i have told all my friends to get this dishwasher.
The Dishwasher That Doesn't Wash Dishes
from Cedar Park, TX
Every dish I put into this things looks exactly the same when it's finished. If there is anything on a plate or bowl or fork, it stays there. Absolutely useless appliance. It came with the house (new) so I can't return it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Huntingdon, PA
Dishwasher has been in operation about 2 weeks now. Racks are easy to use, operation is intuitive and easy, and the performance easily meets expectations. Very quiet operation.
Just Forget About It!
from Hurst, Texas
I'd say my new Whirlpool Dishwasher's most memorable feature is that I can just forget about it! That's right. It takes no thought, no worry, no wonder at all. It always does it's job with energy efficienct ease. That's what I love about all of my Whirlpool appliances. I can just forget about it with confidence.
from Kerrville, tx
When I replaced my dishwasher I certainly made the right choice. The dishes are sparkling clean and I especially enjoy the quiet operation. If I were rating 1 to 10 I would request an eleven!
Works as advertised
We've had this dishwasher for about a year with no issues. It was easy to install and is quiet.
