I love my dishwasher! I have a small kitchen and putting in a full sized dishwasher would have taken away a stack of drawers. We went with the 18" dishwasher and it works great. We are a family of 5 - with my 2 older children and grandson and it works just perfectly for us. I start it before I go to bed and the sound is quiet - I don't hear it in the bedroom. The dishes are very clean - I have not had one that wasn't yet and we have been using it for over a month. Love my new dishwasher!

Perfect for Small House

By 

from Lenoir City, TN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 18" Compact White Built-In Dishwasher:

This has been perfect for my new small house. Efficient and quiet. Only downfall is pump housing cracked. But Whirlpool online service had someone out within a few days and new pump ordered. I'm certain they will make all good.

OK

By 

from LaBelle, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 18" Compact White Built-In Dishwasher:

This item does not seem to clean cutlery as well as the one it replaced, which I believe was a Frigidaire.

It is quieter but does not seem to hold as much. I like the interior finish. Also, the rinse agent gauge is not
easy to read.

This is an 18: dishwasher that can fit in a lot of dwellings. It's stainless inside, runs pretty quiet and gets things nice and clean. We like it a lot.

Does a good job but interior is not an efficient layout

Comments about Whirlpool 18" Compact White Built-In Dishwasher:

The racks are so cluttered with pegs that it is difficult to arrange items. There is less useable space than my old machine.

Quiet Quality

By 

from Spokane, WA

Comments about Whirlpool 18" Compact White Built-In Dishwasher:

Although we would have preferred a full size dishwasher, we only had room for a compact model. We are very pleased with dishwashing results and especially like the delayed start feature.
