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.

By Love my new dishwasher
Comments about Whirlpool 24" White Portable Dishwasher:
I had read a review about glasses coming out sparkling that was so over the top I thought it was fake, but now I bet it was real. It's still a bit loud (portable after all so the water gushes into the sink) but it works great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy-to-move cleaning machine!
from Crystal Springs, MS, United States
This saves my wife a ton of time so she can do what she loves to do! It is easy to move and cleans up the dishes really well. It is the most quiet portable dishwasher I have ever experienced. I really like 2 features in particular. 1) The bottom drawer is really tall and can hold big bowls or pots. 2) It is super easy to hook up to the sink and the power cord and hoses fit neatly inside the back of the dishwasher when it is not in use. It comes with all of the hookups you should need, so don't purchase any extra stuff unless you have an unusual faucet or something.
We have had this dishwasher for a little over a month now and I am in heaven! It works great and is very easy to use.

I bought a little over a month ago and I am very Happy with this dishwasher . It is very quiet and cleans the dishes with no pre-rinsing . Th butcher block top is great for extra counter space in a small kitchen .

I like its portability and the extra counter space it provides. It glides across my kitchen floor and hooks and unhooks easily from my kitchen sink.
cleans very well!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great product cleans very well and is very quiet. We are really glad we bought it.

I bought this for my wife as I don't do a lot of dishes myself, but she says she likes it fine, only thing the old whirlpool we had for about 25 years had the silverware tray on the door, and she thinks she could get more pieces in the old one. We have not had it long enough to see if it saves any money, so don't know about that, but if it is as good as the old whirlpool we had, I'll be happy.
