There are a lot of nice features on this model, e.g. auto soil sensor, 5 wash cycles including overnight and eco-wash cycles, direct feed wash system, large capacity, and others. It has everything I need in a dishwasher. The only thing I'm not sure about is the filter system it has instead of a food disposer; I hope I don't have to clean it out more than every couple of months, not that it looks difficult, I'm just lazy. I installed it myself and that was fairly easy; although I don't like the hose-type inlet water fitting on the machine which made it difficult to attach the water hose without having it leak. The user instructions that came with it don't seem to be the right ones as they don't cover all of the cycles, etc. and is different than the one that you can download on line. Not a big deal but it's odd. It seems to clean very well and is quiet; you can hardly hear the pump running. It's appears to be a good value for the price and I like it very well so far!

The best feature about this dishwasher is that it is super quiet. That is its ONLY good feature. Since the installer did not show me how to start or program the dishwasher, it took me awhile to figure it out. A manual was not left for me either. The silverware compartment is a pain to deal with. You have to remember to remove it BEFORE you unload the dishes or the food residue that is not rinsed away from the dishes on the top rack gets the silverware dirty all over again. That compartment is also inconvenient when loading the dishwasher. I will NEVER get another dishwasher that has that kind of silverware rack. I HATE IT! I have it programmed to not heat dry the dishes yet when the cycle is done the dishes are way too hot to handle to put away. The door has to be open for 10-15 minutes to allow the dishes to cool. If the hot dishes are put on top of or next to the cool ones in the cabinet, the cool one breaks, REALLY! This product was designed all WRONG! Once the cycle is started, if you need to stop it for any reason you can but it will drain and cancel the cycle. When you start it up again you must start from the beginning all over again. That is very inconvenient. The front panel is not reversible or have other colors, or even a protective plastic. Once it is started there is no way of knowing how far it is into the cycle or how much longer it has to go, you just have to wait for it to finish. It just starts, cleans, and stops. Very plain, simple, and basic. No convenient features, no innovation, style or design. I am waiting for my first couple of utility bills before I can tell if it is energy saving.

Whirpool makes great appliances, I would not purchase anything else.
Dependable, good value
from Albuquerque, NM
We bought this dishwasher about 9 months ago and it has worked well over that period. Replaced an 1970's washer that was incredibly loud and only somewhat functional so it is an amazing update. It is not whisper quiet, but very quiet for the cost range. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but an excellent buy for the money and includes everything we were looking for including the sanitize feature.
American made quiet and works well
This was one of the less expensive dishwashers I looked at. Nice and quiet American made. What more do you need. Perfect.
Very reliable equipment
I've trusted Whirlpool products for many, many years. I've not only purchased them, but I used to rebuild used Whirlpool appliances as a hobby. When I bought a townhome recently, there was no question what appliances I would install. "Reliability" is the most appropriate quality you can search for in any appliance. From instructions to parts to service, the support is unparalleled. I have 2 rental properties- all with Whirlpool appliances so I don't have to worry about equipment failure.
from MD, United States
Bought in Nov-2013. Started erratic behavior by Dec-2014 and broke down in a couple of months. The water control fails.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Does not dry
from Texas, United States
The washer works good at cleaning the dishes but does not dry them well
from Cincinnati, Ohio
The most impressive thing I noticed immediately is how quiet this model is. The cleaning cycle is a lot longer than I am used to, but this lends to energy efficiency. The silverware basket is a bit small , which adds more basket space.
Quiet - Clean
from Olympia WA
After a quiet wash everything comes clean clean, the only thing that would make it better is if it could put the dishes away too.
from Woodstock, IL 60098, United States
This dishwasher was chosen by our builder but I wish we could have had a choice as it is just average. The silverware holder is on the door and sometimes our silverware isn't completely clean :-(
