We bought this Dishwasher based on reviews, Electricity/Water savings and color was nice. HOWEVER, from the very beginning, it has been nothing but frustration. Silverware holder holds less than my old dishwasher, not to mention that they do not all get clean (yes, they are put in properly, and not jammed, as well as pre-rinsed) and some fall down laying flat inside the holder. We have tried both positions for the silverware holder. Door position is seriously not helpful, but more of a pain. Inside is much smaller, and can only load limited items...ANOTHER WASTE. have to run again. You MUST use the Rinse-Aid or it won't dry properly, and in fact, does not clean as well if not added. We in fact have soft water as well, so this shouldn't be required at all as far as cleaning. We also do not shove items in, nor load dried on foods. Here's the rub: Purchasing for $$ savings, BUT paying more than running a much older molder that cleaned better, and didn't require pre-rinsing, nor rinse aid. We wind up HAND WASHING our dishes First, and then putting in this dishwasher or forgo it altogether, so essentially we are using (paying extra) water and soap BEFORE loading and then running (using More electricity, More soap, more $$) or just wash by hand and be done with it. This is a Hit or Miss piece of expensive equipment. I do not care about noise level, I believe most would agree that functioning properly after spending hard earned $$ is most important This is an VERY EXPENSIVE Dishwasher to own. What a huge waste of our hard earned $$$. I cannot recommend this to anyone, nor will I rush out to look at any Whirlpool Products.

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:
We bought this about a month ago and it works very well. Dishes come out sparkling clean. Love the hidden controls. Not sure I like the set up of the baskets to load dishes on, but that may be a matter of getting use to it. The stainless steel gets fingerprints easily. Overall its ability to clean dishes is great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice dishwasher. Very quiet. Like the space. Not very fond of the utensils on the door. If the slots were bigger for silverware that would be better and if it soap dispenser didn't interfere when putting your utensils in. Sometimes they don't get clean.
So far so good and very quite....

Purchased washer after ours broke down. I can't believe I lived with a loud dish washer. So far happy and cleans very well. Only draw back is utensil holder. Some of our knives, spoons, etc don't fit well. Remedy is simply removing cover. Oh the washer should come with option to add salt if you suffer from heavy water.
So far so good! Loving it!

Bought this item about a month ago- the big selling feature for our family of 6 was the fact that it had the silverware holder situated in the DOOR of the machine and NOT in the main lower compartment, which we find takes up valuable space for more dishes! So... My son and I actually went looking for this feature and Whirlpool was the one that had it! So PLEASE don't event get rid of this feature! Not only that- but several things have improved since we purchased our last Whirlpool dishwasher in 2009- 1. Quiet wash! Wonderful, you hardly know it's on! 2. More height in both the top and bottom levels for higher pots and pans and dishes- great! 3. We got a white dishwasher, beautiful stainless handle on the outside AND stainless tub inside 4. Absolutely LOVE the hidden controls!! They are located on the inside top of the dishwasher door- hidden from the outside, but so easy to use! Thank you Whirlpool, from our family, who probably does 2-3 washes every day for making such durable and beautiful machines!
Classy looking dishwasher that cleans well!

We purchased a "Black Ice" style Whirlpool Gold dishwasher a few months ago and we are very happy with the way it looks in the room and the way it cleans the dishes. The silverware container fits either on the door or in the bottom rack providing flexibility for loading. It has a stainless steel liner and an adjustable upper rack. I like the sturdy quality construction and even with the rack in the higher position, it accommodates some wine glasses. The sleek handle allows a place to put your kitchen towel to dry if you need it. It is extremely quiet while operating.
Whirlpool Dishwasher - only one complaint...
from Venice, FL, United States
I purchased this dishwasher two months ago. I had read a complaint about the silverware basket and chose to ignore it. I shouldn't have. My silverware often is not clean! The basket falls open when on the door so I now have it inside the dishwasher itself. Very disappointed in this feature. Otherwise I like the dishwasher very much. It is quiet - and I appreciate that!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great machine and super silent!

Its been a month now and the washing machine is the best I've ever owned. Easy options and runs silent.
GOOD BUT NOT GREAT
from Phoenix, AZ, United States
We upgraded to this dishwasher for our new home in June 2014. It's beautiful and does an excellent job cleaning the majority of our items. However this model doesn't come without some design flaws. We run our dishwasher around 7 PM and let it sit overnight. That should be plenty of time for things in the machine to be dry, especially here in the Phoenix, Arizona area. But unfortunately things are pretty wet when we go to put things away the next day. One of the best parts about this model is it's very quiet. The problem with that is you can't tell when it's on because there isn't a running light or finished light in front of the machine, all the controls are on the top of the door. Controls on top of the door=great; Lights to tell you the machine is running or finished on top of the door=not so great. The racks are kind of cumbersome and funky and the worst part about this machine is the utensil holder. This is REALLY BAD. The utensils go into the small compartments in the basket and the basket slides flat onto the door. If you have anything tall in the center slots you can't pull the handle on the basket. If you put anything tall on the left side of the basket, when you go to pull the basket out the tall items hit the soap dispenser. It's a real nightmare. Whirlpool really needs to address these issues and keep everything else the same.

Comments about Whirlpool White Built-In Dishwasher:
Thrilled. Beautiful design -- we have a primarily white kitchen, and the button-free front (buttons on interior lip) combined with the stainless steel handle = very classy. Long cycle means you have to plan a bit, but it's worth the wait and very quiet. Movable trays are helpfully indicated by blue moving parts. Couldn't be happier--great product.
