Any demos around? Does handle have a latch to open door?

Tried looking for a demo but they don't exist anywhere. Hard to buy something sight unseen. Does the handle have a latch underneath? I had a DW with one and it broke a few times rendering DW useless until repaired so I don't want to go that route again.

Answer: 
DO NOT BUY DISHWASHERS FROM HOME DEPOT. The delivery people do NOT install in Massachusetts nor Rhode Island. I have to call my own plumber to do it. What an inconvenience! I ordered online and there were no warnings that I would have to hire my own plumber.

Answer: 
Just bought this dishwasher and had Home Depot to have someone install it. It cost $99.00 for them to install it. You also have to have a new power cord, water-line etc; It is worth the extra $$$$$

Answer: 
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. I believe the best advice would be to talk to one of our many major appliance professionals. There are many factors when upgrading and requesting specific features. For any other questions, please visit your local Home Depot or call our Appliance Hotline 1-800-455-3869.

Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hate My Noisy Dishwasher I am having WP repair out to try to fix this thing. From the first load it makes a loud "Clunk Clunk Clunk" noise when washing. I hope it can be fixed. Otherwise, I am going to have it removed and getting a different dishwasher. November 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Water not pumping out (repeatedly). Within 9 days of installation, water was not draining or pumping out. Whilpool sent out a repairman. Within 60 days, water was not pumping out; however, after repeated washes and cancelled and drains, we got it to work. Within, 75 days, same problem. This time, even whilpool couldn't get the repair man to come out for 2 weeks. We called Home Depot and they agreed to an exchange; however, we ended up with the same product...................I suppose we should make friends w/ the repair man. July 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would not purchase I've had this product for a little over a year. It is now broken- the electronics panel is not working and therefore, the water will not enter. To fix it costs over $300. Just to replace the panel costs $200. I only use this once or twice a week. Highly disappointed- I won't be purchasing Whirlpool products any more. I'll just have to buy a new dishwasher. It doesn't even pay to fix it, especially not knowing that it will last. All my appliances last a long time, as I am gentle and follow directions. Just really disappointed over this! March 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Died after 2 years This dishwasher worked great until 2 years after purchase and part of the "motherboard" broke and would not fill the washer with water. A $70 repairman call with the great news... $333 to replace the part. November 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Dish Washer My wife and I are very happy with the new dish washer. September 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It was good for a year............. I'm not one for extended warranties because I expect products to last more than 14 months. This one didn't. I had to have it repaired because the soleniod malfuncitoned on the rinse aid valve. Overall we've liked the dishwasher, but the quality is not good. April 4, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Motor died after 2 years worst product Don't buy anything whirpool they only last for one to two years. We have had this dishwasher only 2 years and the motor already went in a 2 person household spend your money elsewhere and never buy whirlpool February 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by small but works great! Smaller than I thought. Works great and looks beautiful in my kitchen! January 28, 2015
