I loved my new dishwasher until I realized the very small anyware basket was the only silverware basket. I thought it was just missing additional baskets untl the Whirlpool representative informed me that it only comes with the one. They advertise 14 place settings fit but they are only talking plates as there is no way for 14 knives, forks & spoons to fit in that little basket & actually get clean. I'm using the basket from my old machine which doesn't match but it fits everything. The dishwasher looks great, runs quite and cleans great if you don't try to jam all your silverware into that one little basket. I would have rated it higher if Whirlpool supplied another 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.

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
Cleans a really great. The top rack holds pretty tall glasses but the bottom rack seems a little small. It does not hold two of my dinner plates side-by-side which takes more time for organizing

The top rack wash option is awesome!
By Big Mama
I had no idea that Whirlpool Gold Series dishwasher existed until I unwrapped my Christmas present. WOW! I can use the top rack wash option and wash all of my glasses, china or crystal. I live in the country and use well water, the stainless interior will not rust (big plus), in the past my dishwasher might make two years. OMG! I am saving the best for last. You cannot hear it! Seriously I was hosting a dinner and had guest in my kitchen they could not believe the dishwasher was actually on. I can use it anytime!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Silverware gets in the way
By Hate doing dishes

The main issue I have is it is so easy for taller silverware and spatulas to get in the way of the soap dispenser so it doesn't open.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
soooo quiet but soooo clean
from Sutter Creek,CA
My first priority was quiet- my previous one was very noisy. This one is so quiet you can hardly hear it, does a great job cleaning the dishes and is easy to load. It also is so simple looking, no big logos etc all over the front. I also like the keypad being hidden- a nice clean look.
Quiet as a mouse
from Elkhart, IN, United States
I've been using this dishwasher for two months now and I am extremely pleased with it. Granted, I have been without a dishwasher for several years, this is the absolute best dishwasher I have ever used. It was easy to install, easy to use, looks fantastic inside & out and is quiet as can be. Two thumbs up!
Drying is a problem
from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
We bought this model with our new home. Overall it's quiet. The drying feature is not as good as LG or ken more.
from Troy, TN, United States
Bought this 5 months ago, excellent product! Would recommend!
from Barnegat Township, NJ, United States
My husband and I bought the dishwasher 2 months ago and love it!! I love how we have many cleaning options. The Eco wash is a short cycle and leaves dishes and glasses spotless. Plus it's super quiet....you don't even relize its on with its low him. It's look is clean and gave our kitchen a nice upgraded look without having to remodel. My favorite feature would be that the buttons are hidden on top and little children can't press the buttons.
Whirlpool dishwasher features: flatware basket
By the poj
from Solon, Ohio
I bought this machine from a big box store and the salesperson showed us the machine and told us about the basket feature: it is able to be used on the lower rack and on the door. I have news for you! Putting the basket on the door is convenient for me but unacceptable for the silverware. That little plastic flap does not stay closed an the silverware falls out! Major aggrevation. So I wired the flap shut. Then the wire rusted! Thanks a lot. Now I have secured the flap door to the basket in the machine with a wide rubber band. High tech! Please sent this silverware basket concept back to the drawing board and fix it. Using a silverware basket on the door frees up needed space for dinner plates and platters. The idea is great but the flimsy flap has to go!
Cleans very well!
from Highland, MD, United States
Had this dishwasher for a couple of months. It cleans very well, almost too well, takes the lettering off of pint size glasses. Not a fan of the silverware holder, it comes on the inside of the door but we've moved it to the bottom rack. Nice looking dishwasher.
