Summary: I purchased this dishwasher because it was on sale. Big mistake. I've had it less than 2 wks, and I cannot tell you how many times I've had to deal with silverware spilling out of the rack. Try something else.
Summary: We remodeled our kitchen in 2004. I got this DW the week before Thanksgiving. We have owned it for 8 years, but used it for 7 due to a temporary move. I had to replace the wheels on the lower basket 3 times, and had it serviced for various things when the unit was less than 5. I spent $900.00 when it was new. The cost of the parts and service since near $400.00!!Now there is a leak in the main body and the hearts of pine floor was warped for months. No repairing.
Summary: I had this washer installed yesterday and have not even used it yet, but I am sending it back to Lowes. The online specifications say it has a self- cleaning filter - it does not. I found this out when I was reading over the manual. I called Whirlpool and told them that I had bought a dishwasher that was supposed to have a self -cleaing filter, but the manual has a whole section on how and when to manualy clean the filter.
Summary: This dishwasher is very quiet and cleans very well. However the rails that the top rack slide in have plastic stops that break easily and then the whole top rack falls when you pull it out..........always full of dishes. I have never had a dishwasher that has this obvious lack of quality, and it's only 1 month old.
