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.

great Whirlpool quality!
from Louisville, KY, United States
Comments about Whirlpool White Built-In Dishwasher:
I bought dishwasher almost one month ago. I prefer Whirpool products for their quality and affordability. This one is eco friendly so also qualified me for a rebate from my local energy company! Great product!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent for budget level dishwasher
By J in Cin
I bought this to replace a different brand unit which kept having control board failure. I went with this unit 60% because it was cheap and 40% because Whirlpool has a good reputation. This thing 1) cleans dishes well 2) looks great - stainless steel finish 3) runs much quieter than I was expecting; it's loud compared to the top-of-the-line models nowadays that you can barely hear at all, but it's quiet enough that it doesn't annoy/distract/drown-out anything. 4) it loads very well - some reviews I read had issues with the silverware basket utensil holes being too small for their silverware. Not a problem for me...or anyone else because you can simply lift up the lid and use it like a regular silverware basket.
Very good Dishwasher for the money
from Sahuarita, AZ, United States
The only thing I would tell a perspective buyer would be the buy the adapter for the hose and make sure they remember to take the electrical cord off the old dishwasher before they salvage it. The new one does not come with an electrical cord.
from New Berlin, PA, United States
Ease of installation and a competitive price. Also, we liked the tall door rather than the larger toe-kick as on last dishwasher.
Water Water Everywhere
from Goshen, NY, United States
Cleans dishes well. Installer left plumbing with a leak for water outlet and it damaged cabinet. The top rack is designed a bit less flexible so coffee mugs do not fit as well as the previous Whirlpool. The Order was filled by GE, which seems to indicate an incestuous relationship between manufacturers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Couldn't be happier!
from Morgantown, WV, United States
My 8 year old dishwasher died. A bad motor. The cost to fix it was going to be almost as much as a paid for my new Whirlpool dishwasher. Honestly, this thing is insanely quiet compared to my old dishwasher. I can barely hear it running. And the dishes are so much cleaner! My old one left the dishes spotty or with a film or with food still stuck on them. Not this one! This dishwasher is an Excellent Value. I installed it myself. Read the instructions very carefully....twice. And ask the salesman which connector you will need to hook up the water supply. This one was different than the one it replaced.
from Birmingham, AL, United States
We bought this dishwasher recently and have been very pleased with its looks, performance and features. It operates very quietly and we look forward to many years of dependable service.
Improved Silverware Basket
By Lake Man
from White, GA
Replaced an old '96 GE with this dishwasher based on one we had at our previous house. Best improvement was the silverware basket. Our old house had one with a "lever" that became flimsy and would fall open, allowing the silverware to spill into the dishwasher. Our new one has fixed that problem by having a removable basket that does not a door that pops open unexpectedly. It is nice to be able to move the basket to a different area of the dishwasher if needed. Runs quiet and does a good job.
Sometimes I wonder if running
from Fayetteville, TN, United States
I bought this appliance little over a month ago. My daughter bought the same dishwasher and told me how happy she was with it. So glad I listen to her! Never fails to get my dishes clean, plus it is so quite! I can load so many dishes and other things in just one washing.
