Unfortunately the height of the opening where the dishwasher is installed in our house is short so we were limited to only a couple of dishwashers. We decided to go with the Whirlpool Gold Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher. It took us a few tries before we were able to find the right combination of wash and dry cycle along with dishwasher detergent. The energy efficient setting (Eco) for drying does not do a good job at all. The dishes and tub do not dry completely as a result. We used the High setting and it dries thoroughly.We rinse the majority of food off before we put it in the dishwasher. Therefore we only need to use the Eco setting for washing the dishes. The dishwasher looks great, runs quite and cleans great if you don't try to jam all your silverware into that one little anywhere basket.

There are just two of us so we wash dishes every other day. It is very quiet. Doesn't clean as well as the 14 year old Whirlpool we replaced (and we rinse dishes well before putting in the dishwasher, but I left just a little residue to test its cleaning). The silverware basket gets attached to the door. If you leave it attached, it is hard to put the silverware in the left side because the soap dispenser is in the way. After the cycle, the dishes were wet. Checked the troubleshooting guide; said it needs rinse agent. I had put rinse agent in the day before, but after one wash and half a bottle of rinse agent the dispenser was empty. Now I put just enough rinse agent to fill the dispenser opening (but you don't see it in space where you should see how much is left). That seems to work if you get the dishes out shortly after machine shuts off. If you wait overnight to open the door, there is so much condensation that the dishes are wet and you can feel the moisture. After leaving the door open for several hours, there is still condensation. Never had any of these issues with the old builder's model. Haven't complained to the store, because the problem when purchasing was finding a dishwasher that would fit in a 34.5" height opening.

Has not met our expectations!

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
We bought our Whirlpool dishwasher 2 1/2 years ago. About a month ago it suddenly stopped working. After the repairman made 3 trips over 4 weeks and $332 it's finally working. The repairman even asked if we wanted him to fix it or just buy a new one!!?? Sadly disappointed that a reputable appliance manufacturer can't build a dishwasher that lasts more than a couple of years. Our last dishwasher was a Maytag that lasted 15 years with never a repair, we only replaced it because it was white and we were replacing all of the other appliances in stainless steel. If this is how long Whirlpool products are expected to last, I'll never buy another one.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

do not buy
from Mount Laurel, NJ
I purchased this in early spring 2014. This weekend my husband noticed a leak in the basement. We thought there was a leak in a pipe since we live in an older home. Nope. The dishwasher leaked and has soaked my subfloor beyond repair. Now I have to rip up the floor, get a repairman to find the leak...headache. Also, the silverware basket doesn't fit my silverware nor does my silverware come out clean.

From day one this dishwasher did not fry my dishes. The control panel design is awful. Half the buttons stopped workign after only 1 year. the waster pumped broke at two years, the repair person said this is the worst series and he has had to fix many of them. stay away from this product.
14 Months - Toast.
from New Hampshire
I bought it 14 months ago but it's been in storage 6 months. Reinstalled it in the same location 3 months ago. Two nights ago it sounds like the transmission has rocks in it. Checked everyplace inside I could fine. Trouble shooting guide was next to useless. Very quite and cleaned well when it worked. Silverware tray in the door - bad idea. Doesn't clean well. I'm glad I got it as a close-out price + GI discount. 12 mo warranty, 14 month life, 6 month working life. Add that up how you like. Me? JUNK.Features? Top buttons were easier than previous washer. Add a display for time remaining would be nice. The "Done" light should go out when you first open the door after it really finishes. Having it stay ON all the time makes it pretty useless.
Very quiet and cleans well
from Wauseon, Oh
Been running the dishwasher for a couple of weeks and I am very satisfied. It is extremely quiet and does a great job cleaning the dishes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Dallas , TX
Works well when it was not broken. The repair was done quickly
Clean and Quiet
Love this dishwasher.. the top rack wash option is economical and so handy when glasses, cups and bowls are all you have to wash..It runs so quietly that you almost don't know it's running -unless you listen for it. Just love the stainless steel inside.. Very happy with this purchase
from Eden Prairie, MN
I bought this and so far go good, I've purchased others but not only does it look great but works even better.
