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.

I had a used Whirlpool dishwasher for over 5 years before this purchase. I found the Whirlpool to be the most cost effective model in the market for portables. I like that it is lighter to manuver to my sink. Easy to hook up, and the dishes come out sparkling clean! Its a Winner!!
works great and is quiet

we purchased it a while back and has performed beyond expectations
Exactly what we hoped it would do!
from Mankato, MN, United States
We purchased this unit to replace a portable unit that had died. This was definitely an upgrade as the product was quieter, faster, and dishes came out clean. Although this product is not silent, the sound is minimal. Everything else was as expected, and we are very happy with our purchase.
good customer ratings
The dishwasher is functioning well now, but that is to be expected with anything brand new. In a year, then two will be when the real experience and recommendation of an appliance can be promoted. We are hoping this dishwasher will be able to withstand the test of time.
Love the Energy Star

Have owned several of these type of machines, but this is, by far, the best. I no longer have to "wash" my dishes before I put them in the dishwasher!

Little work horse
from Prescott Arizona
I am delighted with my dishwasher. I bought a old home and there wasn not any way a large dishewasher could be installed, so we boughtthe portible and ran pipes under the cabinets so it is solid. I cannot believe what a great job it does for me.
