My home was not fitted for a built-in dishwasher. Rather than pay for expensive plumbing, purchasing this portable dishwasher was a more practical idea. And thanks to Whirlpool, using this dishwasher couldn't be easier. The connector provided fits both external and internal threading on the faucet. Delayed wash means that the dishwasher is never out in the middle of the floor during the day. And my plastic ware is always clean and EXACTLY where I left it in the dishwasher .. not thrown all over the inside. I have even grown to love the portable part of the dishwasher .. how many of your friends can say they can roll their dishwasher to the dining table to load the dishes instead of having to carry all the dishes back to the kitchen. My dinner party guests were amazed and even wanted to help thinking this was some new cool idea!!! I love it! Thanks Whirlpool.

This dishwasher has a nice "countertop" that has proven very useful, and we even use it occasionally as an "island" for additional prep space in our smallish kitchen. It rolls very smoothly and feels solidly built, and the exterior finish is basic but nice. We really like that there is a sanitize cycle, as it makes bottle cleaning much easier and safer. The quick connect is also pretty easy to use. Downsides are that it doesn't always get tough dishes perfectly clean (e.g. dried cheese and pasta sauces should be pre-scrubbed in the sink), but this seems to be a universal problem with dishwashers. The door and racks don't operate as smoothly as I would have hoped: the door takes some effort to open, and it will stay in place if you leave it partially open, rather than swinging the rest of the way down or shut; likewise, the racks need to be pushed or pulled all the way to where you want them -- you can't just "bat" them and expect them to slide the rest of the way on their own. The bottom rack also misses the track on the door sometimes (again, a fairly common dishwasher problem). The dishwasher is quieter than some monsters we've had in the past but still somewhat noisy, and the hose and drain connection to the sink can be noisy, particularly when filling or draining. The sink connection also "dribbles" water while in operation (the quick-connect is by no means water-tight) -- it doesn't spray, but it probably means at least a gallon of water or more is wasted every time the dishwasher is run. Also, the quick connect that you are required to install on your kitchen faucet has screens but no aerator, so water comes out essentially the same as it would from a garden hose with no attachment: in a thick, fast stream. We wish there were an additional quick connect to add an aerator when the dishwasher is not in use, as the garden hose stream is wasteful and much more "splashy" when doing dishes by hand. The cycles are also surprisingly long: we expected 45 minutes to an hour, but they seem to last more like 2 hours (even just the regular cycle with no heated dry). One additional thing to keep in mind is that the manufacturer recommends removing and sealing off any accessory "spray hoses" that you may have installed in your kitchen sink, to avoid any risk of the hose bursting. We find the spray hose is too useful to get rid of, though, and we simply retrofitted ours to add a ball valve at the connection from the faucet to the spray hose; when we want to use the dishwasher, we just flip the lever to cut off water to the hose. This is not the fanciest, nicest dishwasher you can buy, but we believe it is one of the best portable options on the market right now, and unless you opt for a truly "top-end" under-sink dishwasher, you will find the same disadvantages in most other dishwashers.

Comments about Whirlpool 24" White Portable Dishwasher:
the whirlpool dishwasher is a keeper, as grandpa once said. we didn't think that washing dishes could be so much fun. I actually look forward to wash day which is sometimes quickened by washing thilngs that probably don't even need washing. I sneek these in, so they can be included in the fun!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Happy with purchase
from Kodiak, AK
We bought this dishwasher because our small kitchen didn't have space for a built in next to the sink. It's just what we needed and added counter space, too. My only complaint would be the silverware basket could have deeper sections and they are shaped kind of weird, but it works.
AMAZINGLY CLEAN DISHES
from MIO, MI
AFTER 2 MONTHS THIS DISHWASHER HAS BROUGHT MY DISHES BACK TO LOOKING NEW. WITH USE OF RINSE AID THE BUILT UP WATERMARKS ARE GONE. EASY TO USE & LOAD. 1 COMPLAINT IS THE RINSE AID LEAKS OUT WHEN NOT IN USE SO I JUST PUT IN SOME WHEN I ADD DETERGENT.
Quiet and Efficient

Portable dishwashers have improved.
The dishwasher's top shelf is deep enough for tall drink containers and stemware. Both sides of the bottom shelf have room for dinner plates. The silverware basket has more divisions allowing silverware to remain upright. The detergent and rinse aid containers are easy to see and fill.
Not real happy
from Buffalo, NY
Our old Kitchenaid dish washer lasted 15 years. It was noisy, but worked great. This new one is a little bit quieter but does not do the dishes near as well as the old one. Several times now bowls and silverware have not been cleaned and have had to been hand washed. The hinge on the soap disposer door is cracked already. I am a little disappointed in the performance. We have always recommended Whirlpool products before and have gotten great performance.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
