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.

Love this dishwasher!!

By

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I am in love with this dishwasher. The racks have enough space in between them as well as the silverware basket can go onto the door giving you more space for larger dishes. The only issue I have with this product is the heat dry which seems to make it more of like a rainforest in the dishwasher which leaves the dishes to still be wet and I have to hand dry them.

Cleans well, and very quiet

By

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

We bought our dishwasher several months ago, but put it into service very recently, as we completed our kitchen renovation. While we haven't really loaded it up with a very dirty, stubborn load of dishes, it has performed very well. Does a nice job on the wash and dry cycle. What is most impressive is how quietly this machine operates. So far, we are extremely happy.

Quieter than I expect

By

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher to replace a leaking dishwasher that was so loud you couldn't have a conversation in the kitchen while it was running. We were looking for a low 40db because we didn't know what we previously had, I installed it and we ran the dishwasher that night and you could barely hear it, I wish I could hear one of the 42db to see the difference but I don't think it would be worth the extra $400. It also fits our dishes better than our old cheapo, my wife has some tall travel cups that had to lay down in our old one but they actually stand upright in this one. The only downside is it is tricky to get our storage container lids to stand how I want them but that's nothing. I also moved the silverware holder from the door to the bottom tray because they didn't seem as clean as they should be.

Bought this dishwasher for a second home since I have had such good luck with the one in my primary residence. Only thing that is a little funky is the lock/unlock situation.
