Summary: This unit replaced a 14 yr. old "plain Jane" builder's model. We are blown away with how quiet this dishwasher is!! You can actually hear the television now :) As for washing the dishes it does a great job. It has many options available and we like the "hidden" controls (located on the top of the door).
Summary: More capacity, much quieter, and better cleaning than the "builders grade" model our house came with. Install/use tips - To further reduce noise, place a square of carpeting underneath before putting the bottom trim panel in, and seal air gaps between the edges/bottom using vinyl tape. Cascade Platinum tabs seem to work best. To avoid fingerprints on the stainless door, Sheila Shine works well.
Summary: Cons: I expected far better from Whirlpool and after the brackets holding the plastic wheels broke on the top shelf 4 times I have resorted to a far cheaper and more practical fix. Instead of contacting Whirlpool to send yet another replacement bracket and telling them the machine is defective, I went to the hardware store and bought 2 brass 1/4" flat head bolts with washers and drilled out the plastic to just smaller than the bolt size.
Summary: This dishwasher looks very nice but it just does not get the dishes clean. Very unhappy. My silverware is always filthy. And I really don't want to have to wash the dishes before I put them in the dishwasher to be washed. They just don't make things like they used you. And it was not inexpensive. I had a dishwasher back in the day that you could put dishes that had caked on food and the dishes would still come out clean.
The Quiestest Dishwasher and a true power cleaning unit.

Summary: I love this dishwasher. The fact that it is the most quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. It also cleans the dishes beautifully. The interior also has a clean release feature-just wipe it up if needed also the power scrub sector and the delay timing are fantastic features on this unit. Also the fact that the dials can be locked to keep little fingers from pushing buttons even though they are on top of the door of the unit.
Pros: Convenient Features, Design, Easy to use, Energy Savings, Innovative, Performance, Sound level, Style
Summary: We love this dishwasher! It is very efficient and easy to use. It is also very large, so a lot of dishes can be cleaned all at once. We love the scour power feature. It really does get almost everything off pots and pans. We would definitely recommend this dishwasher!
Pros: Convenient Features, Easy to use, Energy Savings, Style
Summary: We owned a KitchenAid Dishwasher prior to this and believed it to be a good product but we were disappointed with its Service Record. However, our friends recommended the Whirlpool as a product we should consider. Since having this machine installed, we are more than pleased that we took this route. It is quiet, efficient and above all gives us completely washed dishes each and every time.
