Rated 4 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by small space, perfect dishwasher solution I have a smaller kitchen in my apartment and this Whirlpool model has worked out perfectly so far. Relatively quiet, you can hear the dishwasher running but it's not annoyingly loud. It has the expected options, the time-delay feature is perfect for setting for after you leave or overnight. Just enough room with or without the silverware holder, the cleaning is perfect everything I've so far. Yes, the drying agent light for refilling could use a redesign, it's not impossible to see but is annoyingly hard at times. Overall, it's worth purchasing. Don't waste for money for the same options/performance, don't spend less just to save a buck, buy this model and you'll be happy IMO. July 3, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good, not great, dishwasher This dishwasher replaced one before it that was deficient in a lot of ways (we were happy when it gave out!), and it does a decent job. Dishes are always clean (not true before), and the interior isn't filled with soap scum as it was with our old dishwasher. So, it performs like a dishwasher should! Also, it's fairly quiet, in my opinion--doesn't bother me or drown out the TV or music when it's running. Negatives noted thus far (we've had it for about a month now): The heated dry function doesn't dry very well--we usually crack the dishwasher and let dished air dry after the cycle ends. Also, the design of the bottom rack is not great--there are too many tines, which make it hard to load the dishwasher efficiently. All said, it works perfectly well. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Appliance in a Small Space. I have been impressed with the functionality of this dishwasher. It was placed in a very small kitchen and without its small dimensions, a dishwasher would not be practical. It completes its task and compliments the other appliances well. I will use this product in other renovations. September 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good quality & value I purchased this dishwasher after returning a defected new Kenmore. No comparison between the two, the Whirlpool is hands-down a better choice in every aspect. June 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by stainless interior/quieter than old one. quieter than old one, impressed by installers decent price. March 11, 2014
