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.

14 Months - Toast.

Comments about Whirlpool Gold Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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

I bought this and so far go good, I've purchased others but not only does it look great but works even better.
Horrible Dishwasher Dont Buy!!
from Union, KY
Horrible product. This thing leaked so bad it ruined my kitchen floors, which I had to replace. I'm done with Whirlpool.This dishwasher is 2 years old in a new home when installed.
Don't buy a whirlpool.

This dishwasher is simply not what you would expect for the money. Save your money and buy a cheaper dishwasher. The silverware does not get clean, the top rack is to low even in the highest position, and the upper rack runners constantly break. This is the third time I have to replace them and it's probably a 1 dollar part but it cost 25 bucks plus shipping to replace. OMG
from Hattiesburg, MS
The motor died on our dishwasher right after one year was up. For the one year it worked, it was amazing. However, when I purchase an expensive dishwasher with a stainless tub, I expect to get 5 years out of it, not one. I can purchase a $200 dishwasher and get one year out of it. I will never purchase another whirlpool.
Love my clean dishes
