Awesome quality

  • Summary: Ive had this dishwasher for over 2 years now and I cant complain one bit. I bought it at a scratch and dent place for about $200 and I got my moneys worth! It cleans very well and I love the timer settings so I can set it for the middle of the night. I love the the silverwear drawer is in the door to save space.

Agree with other reviews- junk

  • Summary: Had this whirlpool dishwasher for 2.5 years and the motor seized up. Repair dude costs us $89.95 to listen to it for 5 seconds and tell us what we feared, $400 to fix a $400 dishwasher. Had 2 yr warranty, go figure.

Failed during and after warranty.

C. Chandler, Amazon

  • Summary: After taxes and delivery, I paid $400 for this dishwasher. It failed twice under the 1 yr warranty. I then purchased the 1 yr extended warranty. 3 months after that expired it failed again. Entirely frustrated that this didn't last and it was a burden having it. If it lasted, I would have rated 3.5 stars since it cleaned most things well and was quiet enough. Would not recommend this machine.

AVOID

  • Summary: I purchased this model last August (August 30, 2010) and it now needs a new control panel (approximately $200). I am very displeased with the Whirlpool name now and will not purchase another Whirlpool appliance.

Disappointed!

Sean Stanek, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this dishwasher a year and half ago because of decent reviews and because Consumer Reports rated it favorably. I'm disappointed to say that we will be spending over $225 to get the control panel fixed after it quit working. We didn't buy the cheapest model because we wanted something with nice features that would last. I will say that this is the LAST time that I will buy a Whirlpool appliance.

Awful Dishwasher - junk after a year and a half

S "S", Amazon
29 January 2011
  • Summary: Same exact thing as all the other negative reviews on this one. Bought due to the positive reviews in consumer reports and also because we had a 10 year old Whirlpool Gold that worked great. Thought Whirlpool would be a quality brand. Same symptoms, If I have to fill my dishwasher on both racks, I have to remove all the bottom rack items and then put the 'still' dirty items from the top rack in and run it again. So much for energy savings!

You get what you pay for

  • Summary: We purchased this dishwasher almost two months ago. It worked pretty good and even cleaned the non-stick skillets, something our 20yr-old dishwasher did not do. But then recently Cascade changed the detergent formula, and now the non-stick surfaces do not come clean any more - until I switched to 'Finish'. Just as well though, as I think it was ruining the aluminum.

Good value, with one reservation

E. Burton, Amazon
14 December 2010
  • Summary: I am surprised at the low reviews this dishwasher got. I got it because it was a low priced, highly-rated dishwasher recommended in "Consumer Reports". Compared to my previous dishwasher, it is quiet and cleans upper and bottom rack beautifully. As the manufacturer points out, it does require the use of a rinse aid to keep the glassware and silverware from spotting.

DO NOT BUY A WHIRLPOOL Dishwasher

  • Summary: I purchased this dishwasher and the motor blew completely in two years. After many phone conversations and emails, they would do not about it. Dont buy one- they are junk!

unsatisfied

  • Summary: I have owned this dishwasher for just under 2 years. It has never cleaned the dishes well. I always have to rinse the dishes or there is food left on them. I use the detergent that the dishwasher recommends but it leaves a white film on the glasses and anything that is plastic. It is very noisy. My old Kenmore dishwasher always cleaned my dishes and the glasses sparkled. I wish I had it back but it stopped after 15 years. Don't waste your money on this dishwasher.
