I know some people don't like appliances for a gift but I received this as a Christmas gift from my better half and well I have to say I'm so excited about it. I got it about 2 months ago and couldn't be happier.. It's so quiet sometimes I don't know its running and wow clean it really does a great job on cleaning them too. My last dishwasher couldn't get soap scum and residue off and this one did immediately. It is very expensive looking for the middle of the pack but love the black color it looks awesome. I love that the top rack can be lowered that is great for the dishes that can't go on the bottom. The removable utensil basket in the door is great for leaving more room for dishes. I was even able to put my big metal thermos on the lower level and it cleaned it all the way to the bottom that was impressive couldn't do that before. It has not 1 but three sprayers one on the bottom one on the top rack and one even on the very top, very effective. I love that it has a quick 1 hour wash yes it takes more water but the benefits are great when you are in a hurry but love the economy cycle that uses less water when I have the time. I like that the control panel is simple, not so many buttons to figure out. It just is the best appliance I have gotten ever!!! I would recommend this to every one who will listen thanks :)

I have had this dishwasher since April 2, 2015. I have never owned any brand dishwasher except Whirlpool. I have always been very happy with the Whirlpool dishwasher and that is why I bought this one, but I am very sorry to say that this dishwasher is very different. The racks are flimsy, they fly back into the dishwasher when I am trying to unload the dishes. I do not like the dark inside of the walls of the dishwasher,but the absolute worst thing is that even using all of the settings as suggested and extremely hot water, the dishes and the walls of the dishwasher Are WET when the cycle is complete. I have to dry everything as I take the dishes and silverware out of the dishwasher. If I wanted to dry dishes by hand I would not have bought a dishwasher. I complained to the store where I purchased this appliance,but I was told to contact Whirlpool, which I did not do yet.

I got a Whirlpool refrigerator a year ago. When it was time to get a dishwasher, I didn't have to think twice. The dishwasher is perfect.

It certainly works better than the Whirlpool we had. I don't have the model number, but it lasted from 2001 or so.

Great Features

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher about 1 month ago and I like it very much. The black color goes great with my kitchen decor. I love the sensor cycle so that I don't need to think about which cycle I need for which load. My dishes are clean and dry and so are my pot and pans. It is also a very quiet dishwasher and I love that it has 3 tiers of spray.

We've had this dishwasher for a week now and have no complaints. It's quiet and gets the job done! Dishes come out clean, but usually still wet even with the heat dry setting on. No big deal though. Very happy with our purchase!

A Couple of Design Flaws, But an Overall Good Value

By 

from Akron, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Does a nice job of washing at an excellent price.

Design flaw #1: The silverware basket is too small however. It just will not hold enough silverware and cooking utensils for our family of four from just breakfast and supper (everyone is gone at lunchtime). We ended up using the basket form our old washer which is a less than perfect fit with prongs form the rack sticking up through it. Also, the basket that comes with it can be placed in the bottom rack or mounted on the door. But, when mounted on the door, it doesn't stay in place and things in the bottom rack catch on it when rolling in and out.

Design flaw #2: The door does not lay flat when open unless there is the weight of the rack with dishes on it. Also, be aware, that the door will leak if the washer isn't leveled properly.

The washer does a nice job of washing at a great price. I would not let these flaws discourage you from buying. I'm just hoping the manufacturer listens and improves them. Other areas for improvement: It's a little noisy, but, you get used to it. It only has a 4 hour timer. It would be nice to be able to set it for other intervals.
