The upper sprayer cleans and rinses the upper rack better than my old dishwasher which had a telescopic spray post. This make it so you can put larger pans in the middle of the lower & upper rack. It's a lot quiter than I expected, and does a very good job of cleaning dishes. I don't even rinse, just scrape & load, and almost every time everything is clean. I like the rinse agent guage that lets me know if it needs refilled. The clean light is the best idea ever (for those of you who have used dishes out of a dishwasher and later found they weren't clean!). The only thing I didn't really like was the soap latch. It has a small catch latch for the soap lid, which can be troublesome if you use powder dishsoap and spill it around the latch. Also, the operating manual could have been a little more informative.
I shopped around to find a dishwasher that would match the color of my refrigerator and oven. Sears offers the best deal. The dishwasher was easy to install and works great.
We bought this 9 months ago. It has never cleaned the dishes. We had a great Whirlpool for 12 years prior to buying this one. We only replaced it because the racks were so bad--and as expensive as getting a new dishwasher. This one is the opposite when it comes to cleaning dishes. The kids and I wash by hand now and just use it as a drainer---needless to say, they hate the new dishwasher.
All you need to do is load the dishes and utensils in the proper places of the dishwasher, load the cleaning solution, shut the door and push the settings you prefer.
Not the best around, quite loud when its running but it works great ;)
I am a big fan of the whirlpool gold series. I have slowly been replacing my maytags that came with the house.
I am enjoying the quietness and clean, shiny dishes
As a 73 year old DIYer I found the unit very easy to install replacing a Maytag unit. My wife is pleased with the operation and cleaning. I like the super quiet operation and the on board filters which add the overall operation of the unit.
Overall, a nice product. My only complaint is the utensil holder. The idea of hanging the forks and spoons is good, but when you try to remove them, if they aren't completely aligned with the hole, they catch and some times the whole utensil container come off the washer and spills all over. Just have to be careful. Very nice product!
I was looking for a middle priced machine and think this was a good choice. I find it harder to arrange my dishes and utensils than my previous machine, and think the time it takes to complete the cycles is far too long. I can't believe it saves that much energy. The racks and the adjustments of the prongs or whatever they're called is somewhat limited and I can't fit as many cups, glasses, and small dishes in the top rack as I would like, and I have yet to figure out how to arrange various plates, bowls, pans and such in the bottom rack efficiently since all the "prongs" are the same height. It would help to have an actual manual to show how best to load it,.
