easy to install. 1-hr wash does the job every time!
This is our second Whirlpool dishwasher in just 3 years. The first one was bought just for the price (was the cheapest we could find in the color that we wanted)......lesson learned. The control board failed just shy of its third birthday and it would have cost almost as much to fix it as it would have to just buy a new one. So we opted to buy a new one, do more research, and buy the five year warranty this time. So far, this machine is doing it's job. It looks good, gets the dishes clean, and didn't completely break the bank. It is a little noisy, but we we were unable to use the insulation because the space was too tight. Also, please know this particular color is not stainless steel. It is more of a grey/silver. I was disappointed at first, but am actually more satisfied because the fingerprints are basically non-existent! We love that! The other machine was the shiny stainless it it showed everything, this one does not. I would recommend this dishwasher and found it to be a pretty good buy.
I have enjoyed this dishwasher for about one month. It is quiet and cleans the dishes well. The main reason I gave it a overall score of four and not a five is the position of utensil basket. It makes it difficult to put tall utensils next to the soap dish. In addition, some of my utensils have a wide handle which does not fit into the narrows holes provided in the basket.
The mounting / securement bracket could be better. The water supply is also poorly positioned.
Love the efficiency and quiet of this model compared to our old one!
Although this cost a little more than we had planned to pay, we decided to "bite the bullet" and get more features than we anticipated we would need. We opted for the stainless steel interior and extra cycle features. We have been pleased with our choice and would recommend Whirlpool to our friends.
Very pleased so far, and expect to be happy with it for a long time. Happy wife!
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.
