we ordered this dishwasher for our renovated kitchen because of space issues. We wanted a dishwasher but a regular size would not fit it. The dishwasher is now running well, but it took us awhile to figure it out. The first problem was streaks and stains on the dishes and the door of the dishwasher. I have had a dishwasher in other homes, but this had me stumped. I tried changing the small adjustment for hard water and that did not help. I had our water temperature checked by a plumber but that proved to be ok. Finally I bought the premium dishwasher detergent and that solved the problem. It is a little disconcerting that I have to buy the very best detergent or the washer doesn't work well. The rinse dispenser is difficult to deal with. The little window that indicates when rinse aid is needed is very hard to read. The first time I filled it I had no idea when I had put enough in, so, of course, I overfilled it and ended up with rinse aid all over the door. Finally after a couple weeks I think I have it figured out, but it's not exactly user friendly. And finally, the top rack is very difficult to move in and out. It does not move smoothly and the glassware rattles and jumps as I move it in and out - not a serious problem, but an annoyance. I know I cannot expect this little guy to have the features of the bigger and more expensive models, and I wish we could have put in a regular size dishwasher, but you asked for a review so here it is. Hope it gives you some useful information.

Perfect for small space
Comments about Whirlpool 18" Stainless Steel Tall-Tub Built-In Dishwasher:
I wanted to work a dishwasher into my kitchen renovation but don't have much space. My household consists of my husband and myself so we only have to run it a couple of times a week. It gets my dishes clean and sparkly and runs relatively quietly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Does a great job but the cycles are long.
from Manistee, Michigan
Nice washer, needs a shorter cycle added. This would make it easier to do small loads that are not very dirty.
Quieter and better cleaning than expected
from Boothbay Harbor, ME
We had been led to believe that such a small dishwasher would be very noisy. We were pleased with its quiet operation and the quality of the cleaning. Very easy to use, and very easy to install beneath our kitchen counter. For the quality is reasonably priced.
Excellent product. Easy to install and use

Whirlpool® Compact Tall Tub Dishwasher
This is an excellent dishwasher. It is quiet, does a great job cleaning, and fits very well into my small kitchen.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good product, but poor quality control at assembly point.
from Mountain Home, R
Bought this dishwasher and had it installed in a home we had just purchased. We kept noticing water on the carpet in front of the sink, but none in front of the dishwasher. Called a plumber as we thought a water line in the wall was leaking. Turned out that the dishwasher was leaking underneath, but only when it was running. Because of the design of my floor the water was getting under the tile and moving across to the front of the sink.Had a service person come out to inspect the dishwasher and it turns out that a retaining ring inside the dishwasher tub that holds the pump and drain unit in place was broken. A piece was broken off of it and was not in the unit, leaving the only assumption that it was assembled this way and was shipped past quality control. The plus is that the warranty is in effect and is being honored by the company. Very disappointing, to say the least.
Quite, efficient, dishwasher for small places
from St. Louis , MO
I'm pleased with this purchase. Fits more dishes than you would expect for the size and runs very quietly.

Overall pretty good
from Southern IL
Overall this dishwasher is pretty good. Very quiet and it does an excellent job cleaning dishes. Takes ~2 hours to go through an entire "normal wash" cycle which isn't too bad. However, the layout design inside the dishwasher is TERRIBLE! The upper rack's tines are not conducive to cereal bowls, the lower ones do a poor job of handling both large and small plates. I invariably spend 10 minutes trying to get my dishes to fit and we don't use a lot of dishes.
