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 Black Built-In Dishwasher:
My third Whirlpool Dishwasher. I like the feature with the silverware basket in the door and doesn't take up space in the actual dishwasher. This model is quieter than my last Whirlpool (which was 13 years old). Seems like the cycle takes longer but have only used it once since it was installed and I may have selected the wrong cycle. The lower basket on this is lower than the last which enable you to put in bigger plates and pots without the spinning arm hitting them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a very quiet dishwasher that really does a great job! Everything comes out slean and reaqdy to use. No checking to make sure that everything came off. Did I mention that it's a LOT quieter than our old unit.
Cleans well and very quiet
Initially difficult to install but ABT easily resolved problem. Nice and quiet and silverware sparkles!
Comments about Whirlpool White Built-In Dishwasher:
Some water still left on certain dishes

About Me Gourmet Chef
The racks are wide open, giving a lot more flexibility than other dishwashers. We can fit several more dishes, whether they are big bowls or anything else. However, the silverware holder is poorly designed. The door opens easily, spilling the contents all over the dishwasher. The slots in the lid were too small for our flatware, so we threw them away. The pins to hold the mechanism are tiny and difficult to set in place. Overall we like the dishwasher, but the silverware holder is really poor design.
quiet and economical
from Palmdale, Ca
Great product. My only complaint is the silverware basket. It's too narrow. Hard to get smaller kids forks, etc. in and out of the basket. They get stuck a lot.
This dishwasher is a basic model, but works well. Runs quietly and cleans well.
from Sarasota, FL
I was very, very surprised how much I like this dishwasher. It cleans very well and is unbelievably quiet. It has a very long cleaning cycle but is so quiet and unobtrusive that one can still enjoy conversation or TV in the same room. Once the cleaning and drying cycles have completed, I pull out the trays and let the dishes completely air dry while still warm. Without this last step, the dishes will remain damp in the closed machine. I am very happy with this machine and highly recommend it.
Very satisfied with performance and value
from Bonita Springs, Florida
Quite, efficient, Good value is very important to us when we buy all things. This product filled the bill in every category. Good job, well done.
My whirlpool Dishwasher Is just what I wanted in performance
from Sonoma, CA
Even though it's not top of the line. The performance and quietness are just what I expected and more.. Since purchasing it for myself. 3 older Teens have come from the UK to stay indefinately with me. Needless to say, their idea of rinsing a plate/glass or whatever is not top of their list. So baked on food on plates, coffee cups with rings from sitting too long, glasses with milk stains go into the dishwasher. Ha let alone the silverware. Everything comes out spotless and clean. And thats just using the regular wash or econ wash. Please keep producing great appliances. Thank you Bonnie
