Replaced our 10 year old black GE dishwasher with this stainless whirlpool model. First reason was to match other stainless appliances during a kitchen remodel but after only a couple uses we could tell this was much superior in cleaning our dirty dishes. We hope this dishwasher will last for many years and that is why we elected for the stainless tub inside.

Our local dealer, did a great job delivering and installing this dishwasher. It is very easy to use and my wife loves the buttons easily accessed on the front of the door. I thought our old dishwasher did not need replaced but now I realize it was not completely cleaning all the dishes in just one wash. We do not have to wash them twice with this new 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.

        Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:

        Have had this dishwasher for a week and am very disappointed. The top rack is very small and 3" shorter than the bottom rack. Very difficult to load and doesn't allow for large loads or larger items. It is also very noisy. We actually thought something was wrong with the motor and had a repairman come to check it out. Nothing was wrong -- it is just loud. We are not keeping this appliance. Unfortunately, can't take it back to the store.

              Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:

              We replaced all of our appliances and we love everything else except this dishwasher. We chose this model because of the stainless steel tub but it seems to be one of the only features we actually like about it.

              It fits in the space that our old dishwasher fit in and yet it seems, capacity-wise, it is a good bit smaller. It is a tall tub dishwasher and yet that is irrelevant due to the loss of width and depth of the tub. We are running loads more often than was necessary prior to installation.

              The silverware basket is probably our biggest peeve. It is constantly falling apart. It doesn't fit well in the space it is made for and nothing secures it to the rack. It is cheaply made of light plastic and is an awful design feature.

              The racks are more annoying than anything. The bottom is always falling off of it's sliding grooves and does not slide smoothly out. It catches in a gap between the door and the bottom of the dishwasher. This knocks it off of the grooves, and requires you to manually place it back in place.

              May be a plus for some but we learned from our mistake that is was not... The drying cycle seems too hot (even with the heated dry option turned off) We have melted a couple items- one of them being, our dishwasher safe blender pitcher that is unable to fit on the top rack. The manual refers to an air-dry or energy-saving dry option but I don't believe there is a setting outside of keeping the heated dry option off.

              The dishwasher cleans well for the most part. Have had some issues with silverware not getting clean.

              On the plus side the buttons are self explanatory and running the dishwasher is very simple. I also like the lock feature, since we have a 2 year old that likes pressing buttons. And as I mentioned before, I like the stainless tub. It is easy to clean when needed and for us it seems to stay cleaner than the plastic tubbed dishwashers.

                    Defaulted to this dishwasher due to space issues. Couldn't be happier...washes flawlessly on the normal setting, realitively quiet and super built. Concerned after reading some negative reviews, but have only been pleased. Very similar to the older well built Kitchen aid by Hobart machines.

                          This was the only dishwasher model I could find where the total depth (with door open) would fit in my kitchen. We had initially purchased another Whirlpool model where the total depth was about 1.5 -2 inches too long. That being said, I'm not that pleased with the rack design, or the overall interior size. There is definitely less dish storage capacity compared to the 1996 model Whirlpool dishwasher we replaced. Plus the silverware holder is on the lower rack instead of the dishwasher door. We prefer it to be inside the dishwasher door. The silverware holder is cheaply made. The handle broke (not thru abuse) on the 2nd use of our new dishwasher. It seems to be a sub-standard material (plastic) that's apt to break easily. Whirlpool said they would be sending us a replacement, which we hope to receive any day now. One other thing is the dishes don't seem to get totally dry. This is another bad comparison to our previous Whirlpool dishwasher. On the good side, the dishwasher runs very quiet.

                                        This dishwasher does s grew job getting the dishes clean. However, it really does not hold much. Another problem is the flatware holder. Many of the slots are way too small and the holder itself is always falling apart, as it comes in 3 pieces. I do love the stainless steel tub.

                                              Beautiful, great features, but noisy and holds much less than my old one

                                              Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:

                                              This was the best ADA compliant dishwasher I found. It is a bit smaller inside than my old one, but I'm ok with that, there is only 2 people here. It washes great, and is much quieter than my old one.

                                              Service and delivery comments:

                                              Prompt delivery, the guys were very nice and quick also. This is my 2nd appliance purchase from ABT, and I would never shop any where else now A+++ service!

                                                    This came with the house we just built and love it. It is what I would have picked if we has had a choice of dishwashers. Super quiet which I love since out pitch opens to our family room
