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:
Overall, I am happy with this dishwasher, but getting used to any new appliance takes time. I liked the top rack layout of my old dishwasher better--many cups are too wide to fit well between these tines. I like the energy saving features, although running a dishwasher overnight and for long periods of time, doesn't seem like it would be energy efficient. The new features now require rinse aids to result in dry dishes, even with the heat feature. We kept our old utensil rack -- it's easier to get the utensils in and out of.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Everthing fits beautifully
from Albany, NY
We bought a house which had a Bosch, but the control panel failed, and we had to replace the dishwasher. We were so happy, as nothing fit right in the Bosch, and even though it was supposed to be a better dishwasher than the Whirlpool, it wasn't as good as the Whirlpool we had at our previous house. We are so happy to have a Whirlpool dishwasher again.
Very easy to use.
I love my Whirlpool dishwasher, Thank you for making the chore of doing dishes more fun. I can unload the clean dishes and quickly load up all the dirty dishes and pans into my spacious dishwasher. There is a lot more room in this one compared to my old one, it even has a basket for silverware my old one didn't . I just love it!
Enjoying the quiet cleaning action!
Not really happy with the silverware rack on the door. They slots do not hold as much (even though the feature info says they do) and are not as deep as what I I was used to. It is also hard to get our bigger coffee mugs positioned along the sides of the top rack and our 12 cup Mr Coffee pot is very difficult to position in the lower rack - it will not sit down to the bottom of the prongs!
Very quiet, easy to load and very easy to use
In the past, our dishwashers were not very appealing to the eyes but after this one was installed we were very pleased by its appearance. What was really nice is that you can't even tell it is on...Yes! It is that quiet. Well worth the purchase!
silverware never clean
The basket on the door of the dishwater has the silverware container on it. I have to "squeeze" my silverware in it, and it never gets clean. I have had this dishwasher for 2 months now and am very unhappy with it. I wish I could return it for a different model. It was suggested to me that I use "rinse aid" which I have never used in my life. That really doesn't help.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Does not clean as thoroughly as older models.
I have owned Whirlpool Dishwashers and other appliances for the last 20+ years and considered them excellent products. However, I find the cleaning power of my latest dishwasher is nowhere near as efficient as my last (less expensive) model. After experimenting with dishwasher detergents I have found the Cascade Gel (or comparable brand) works best as it leaves the least amount of residue. Other detergents - Powders etc - leave a lot of white residue, streaks and watermarks on plates and cutlery.
So quiet I had to get close to make sure it's on
I really enjoy this DW compared to my old one that was so loud you couldn't be in the same room when it was on(Maytag). It looks great in my kitchen along with my new Whirlpool Range and Over-the-stove microwave. I would reccomend this any other Whirlpool products to everyone. Great value, appearance, and functionality.
Cannot believe how quiet this dishwasher is, You hardly hear it run
For many years I could hear the old dishwashers over the TV. To the point we would run it when we were away, which is not a good idea. The new whirlpool is so quiet you can hardly tell it is working. Love it and great on cost saving. The installer did a fine job taking out the old one an putting in the new one. Very well trained.
This product has good features and is very quiet.
I really like the silverware basket design and location. It runs very quietly which is a great feature. This dishwasher is easy to use. It is energy efficient which is important to me.
