We've had our dishwasher about 6 months and feel it is doing the job quite well. We hope the energy savings are not eaten up by the required use/purchase of Jet Dry rinse accent products. Jet Dry is required in order to have "dry" dishes. The "heated dry" feature does not dry the dishes by itself.

I will start with what is good about this dishwasher - it fits in the space I have. We replaced our kitchen floor and had to go with a dishwasher less than 33 1/2 inches high. It does fill the width space and the installer did a nice job of making it look good. It does seem to clean adequately. My appreciation stops there. Every time the door is opened or closed there is a "beep" sound - can't be turned off. I need to pull quite hard to even open the door. The door doesn't open flat so the bottom rack rolls back into the tub. I was especially disappointed with the interior size. It is very small and shallow depth. Don't expect to wash many pans at one time. The silverware rack is a joke. It comes apart and can't be moved to another more convenient place in the dishwasher. I finally took the handle off and removed the slotted covers. The flip-down racks in the upper basket won't stay up and were always in the way of putting glasses, etc. in the dishwasher - they went the way of the silverware covers. The baskets seem cheap and do not look like they will hold up over time. Overall a very poor design. I would not recommend this dishwasher. I have a feeling we will not keep it for very long. Wish I had gone with the full size model and taken the chance of getting it to fit.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:
fits great under counter in my ADA kitchen
Very, very pleased! I didn't realize how much we needed a new dishwasher!!!
It's a little quieter than our old one--that's a plus. It does a GREAT job cleaning the dishes--another huge plus! And I really like being able to choose the "Light" option and being able to NOT choose "Heated Dry."

This product works well
from Morton, MN
I would have to say that overall this is a good dishwasher in terms of getting your dishes clean. The smaller tub is good for those older homes with odd sized cupboards. The problem I've had is the delay timer and pots and pans buttons do not work. Repair has been called...but still not here. Other than that this is a good dishwasher.

We are very pleased with this product. It performs excellent and the stainless steel tub is very easy to keep clean.

Not worth your money!!
My husband bought this dishwasher for me and I was so excited until I actually used it. The basket that holds the silverware is segmented and falls apart. The racks are lightweight and cheap. They won't stay in the grooves and I have to physically pick them up and put them inside. Dishes won't get clean and are spotty unless you use half the soap only in the left compartment, use a rinse agent, and use hi-temp wash.
This product is poorly designed.
So Disappointed! After much research, we selected another model by Whirlpool. However, our counter height forced us to substitute this ADA compliant model. Not much choice. What are the problems? The top shelf is designed so that whatever cup or glass is put in, falls over when it is closed. The tines are not designed for bowls. The bottom shelf does not pull out smoothly, but like there is a speed bump. So plates move around, after we have finally pushed them into spaces that, once again, are not flexible. And I have to listen to my husband repeat how much he hates this dishwasher every time he loads it.
Very disapointed in this model
Very poor design, especially for the price tag. This dishwasher did not fit the required opening very well. The space inside the dishwasher is very small and very disapointing. It is very difficult to fit anything of any size into the racks. Whirlpool fell very short with this deisgn and should rethink this model. I would not recommend this model to anybody. Our last Whirlpool dishwasher lasted less than 3 years before the pump went out. The cost of repairing that pump led my wife and I to purchase new. We picked the comparable unit, but are very disapointed.
