Summary: This is a great dishwasher. Two detergent tabs is all you'll need. Uses very little water and everything comes out amazingly clean. Set on Normal, HiTemp-Wash and Sani Rinse. Love the Overnight function - it's pretty quiet, so it turns on when I'm asleep and dishes are done when I get up in the AM. Catch it on sale ; paid $404.00 for mine at Lowe's. Price listed on Amazon is way too high.
Summary: I bought this on Amazon and I am very happy with its performance. I think it is a good buy. It does a great job cleaning the dishes. The utensil basket in the door is a little odd but I got used to it. Very roomy inside for such a small appliance. The delivery company was very good about keeping in contact about delivery, but when the truck arrived, the worker refused to bring it into the house.
Summary: I purchased my whirlpool in December of 2012, in less then one year whirlpool warranty is sending a third repair person to my house to try and repair this machine rather then just replace it...so its another day I need to take off..the moter has already been repaired, then replace, and here I am with a water that won't drain...why can't they just replace it rather then send a repair man .
Summary: Received my dishwasher less then a week, very pleased with it, easy to install and so quiet, hardly can hear it running, my dishes stack well and can hold a large load,, would recommend this one for the price it cannot be beat.
Summary: Had to get rid of the dishwasher after only 9 months. Leaked since it was new, even after having a repair person look at it. Motor went bad after about 7 months, then the circuit board went bad, then right when they replace the circuit board, the console for the cycle select buttons stopped working. Whirlpool would not replace the unit, just kept sending repair people over and over. It did clean very well, and dried well, however. Bad quality otherwise.
Unreliable, declining quality. Don't bother unless you want to pay to get it fixed.

Summary: This is the third Whirlpool dishwasher that I have had fail in the last 3 years! This one failed exactly one month after the warranty expired (Whirlpool didn't even consider extended a courtesy to a loyal customer), the one before that lasted 2 years, the one before that 10 years. Whirpool seems to be in a steep decline in overall quality.
Summary: I don't know if this is a new standard but it is a waste of time to have dishes come out as wet as they do. This dishwasher doesn't dry for anything even with all the heat settings on and rinse aid in. If you pull the tray out, which is plastic, to unload the dishes the water drops on the dry dishes. It cleans them well but I have to spent about the same amount of time drying as I would actually hand washing.
