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.

Comments about Whirlpool White Built-In Dishwasher:
Have had this for a month. Works decent. Although we usually have to put it on the heavy wash cycle for all to be sparkling clean. It's an energy star and that was important to us, so all in all, I think it is fine. In my opinion, dishwashers do not last long, shame, but they are a disposable appliance. It's better to buy a lower end model with a good reputation and have it for about 7 years and then replace it, then to buy a higher end, say $800 or more and still it won't run well after about 7 years. Other big appliances aren't that way, but dishwashers are. Also, as a side note, the silverware compartment is attached to the door, so that provides more room for dishes in the rack.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this dishwasher for about 9 months. I expected it to be quieter and do a better cleaning/drying than the 20 yr old model that it replaced however I that hasn't been the case. It's okay, but was not worth the price.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I moved into my new home a month ago and the kitchen appliances were an upgrade that I chose. I am very happy with this dishwasher. After unpacking dishes and utensils that had been in storage for 8 months, I set the dishwasher to sani cycle. Great job.

We recently purchased this dishwasher, being the first one for us since we were married several years ago. It has made day to day life so MUCH better. The ability to accomplish more in a day, or have that moment in the evening to RELAX is totally appreciated! Our Whirlpool dishwasher is a welcome addition to our family.

I purchased this dishwasher for a kitchen remodel. I did the installation myself and it was well documented and easy to install. The unit is made in America which is another plus. I was pleasantly surprised when I ran the first load on how quiet it was. Had to stand right in front of it to hear that it was working. I really love it and would recommend this product to anyone. Another plus is that it really cleans the load very well.
Quiet and Cleans Well
I've had this dishwasher for about two months now. I really haven't even explored all the features yet, but I can say that I like it for two main reasons: it's quiet (compared to our previous dishwasher at least) and it cleans well. My complaint would be that it doesn't dry well, although using the rinse aid helped a lot. It doesn't have a lock feature, which would be great with a toddler in the house. Overall, it meets our needs and we are happy with it.
