I love the sleek, clean lines of this Whirlpool dishwasher.The controls are easy to read and this Whirlpool holds more dishes than the KitchenAid it replaced. The first time we ran it through a cycle we had to put our ear next to the door - that is just how quite it runs. I do use a recommended rinse aid, consequently have not encountered spotting. I have used powder as well as the little cleaner packets, both with excellent results. Dishes always come out clean, but I always rinse them prior to putting the dishes into the dishwasher even though it has a scrubber cycle. Old habits are hard to die - i just can't put dishes with hardened food on them in the dishwasher to sit until it's time to run a cycle. I conducted hours of research and visited several stores to visibly inspect dishwashers which would meet our high standards of expectation - this one more than fills the bill. I highly recommend this dishwasher.

I did a lot of research before buying this dishwasher. It had most of the features I wanted, was not too expensive, had good reviews, and best of all, matched my black-appliance kitchen. Unfortunately, none of the descriptions or pictures of the unit included the fact that it has a large "Made in America" sticker on the front, as large as the Whirlpool logo and crookedly slapped on, THAT IS NOT REMOVABLE. This sticker is multicolored and destroys the look of the unit. I assumed the sticker would be easily peeled off and so let the unit be installed. I was wrong - it cannot be removed without damaging the surface of the door. This on a "designer" dishwasher?? I'm all in favor of products made in America, and I understand Whirlpool wanting to highlight that fact, but why am I forced to have this ugly sticker part of my kitchen decor?? I started out loving it, now I hate the way it looks.

A disappointing purchase
By Cost-conscious senior
from Michigan City, IN
Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:
After 8 months of light (twice-weekly) use, one of the plastic bumpers that cap the front of the upper rack has fallen off and cannot be re-secured. One of the front lower rack plastic coated vertical support spindles has worn through and rusted. I've coated it with nail polish to prevent further disintegration but consider these issues to be inordinate wear and tear. I would rate wash quality as marginal as it does not remove lipstick from glasses and cups or well rinsed knives used for peanut butter.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Hummm, not so much
from Boucherville, Québec
I have had many dishwashers over time and this one is not a bad buy but it is somewhat disappointing.The general cleaning is ok if all dishes are well rinsed prior to washing. But the in-door utensils rack is awful. The utensils separator is pretty much useless since many utensils do not fit in the provided wholes. And if your utensils aren't completely clear of food particules, they will come out dirty and stained. NEVER buy a dishwasher with in-door utensils rack.
needs a light
from Lewistown, PA
Its impossible to know if the cycle is finished, without OPENING THE DOOR!! You should have a light on the OUTSIDE that ..lights up when the cycle is FINISHED!!ALSO, the silverware container should be larger, with interior slots that do not allow smaller items to get stuck.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not the greatest dishwasher but not bad. The lower rack came damaged and Whirlpool won't replace it under warranty so the cost to get a replacement lower rack is about a quarter of what the dishwasher cost. It runs good just watch out for warranty loop holes and parts replacement costs which are really high
Whirlpool Gold series dishwasher
I bought this a month ago and I am so happy that i did. this dishwasher is so quiet, you dont even know it is running! My husband loads and unloads this one more so then he ever did with our old one; he likes it that much! It does a really good job cleaning even the most scoured on plates. The stainless steal inside and out is stylish and durable.
from Oulu, WI
So far so good. It does a nice job on the dishes and is very quiet. I don't ace for the silverware. basket on the door, so have moved it to the lower basket. Not a big deal. I. would like an alarm when the wash cycle is over so I know when to open the door and allow an aid dry. Nice machine overall.
So far, so good
from Lincoln, NE, United States
We have only used it a few times, but so far we are very pleased with the dishwasher. It is so much quieter than our old dishwasher. We often wonder if it is still running.The only negative that we have so far is that none of the controls are visible with the door closed. If you want to check if you have heated dry on or off, you have to open the door, which stops the wash cycle. We had a problem one time where it did not complete the wash/dry cycle after opening the door and then resuming the cycle.

Quiet Easy to load
from San Tan Valley, AZ, United States
I love this dishwasher. It is so quiet you don't know it's running. Easy to load with adjustable top shelf. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get a new dishwasher.
Great looking and stainless inside
from Tavares, FL, United States
We updated our kitchen appliances recently and decided to go with the Whirlpool "Black Ice" series. We purchased the refrigerator, dishwasher, gas range, and over the range microwave. They look very nice in our kitchen and we are very happy with the appearance of all of the appliances. Specifically about the dishwasher, we like the black ice so much more than stainless steel on the exterior. We don't use a dishwasher all that often, but when we have it has worked well. Quite happy with our purchase.
from Greensburg, PA, United States
Our new dishwasher was a great value. It is very efficient and very quiet. Quite pleased with this purchase
