Questions & Answers

Does this dishwasher have an air dry option?

Asked by: ld23
no
Answered by: cndunne2017

We use a lot of plastic bowls and plates (kids) how does it dry?

Asked by: Christie
I think this dishwasher dries well as long as you use the rinse aid product (which it tells you to do in the manual). I have tried it without and it did not dry very well without it. But, when using it, it does dry very well. The only time I see water still on the dishes is when the bottom of the dish has a convex shape to it since it goes in upside down (like tupperware)- then of course a small puddle of water will form in the dent, but I think that is standard for any dishwasher. For plates, cups, etc, they come out dry!

What is monochromatic stainless steel vs other stainless appliances

Asked by: Jeff
Not much difference at all. Monochromatic just means the other pieces - such as the control panel are closer in color to stainless. On this model the panel is gray instead of black.

Front Control Dishwasher in Monochromatic Stainless Steel is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5048.

It has to be the worst dishwasher on the planet. The dishes are always dirty. They are always wet. And the cheap plastic liner grows mold around the openings. I have owned many different models of dishwashers over the past 50 years. This one has to be the worst, ever. Do not buy this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Many nice features for the price There are a lot of nice features on this model, e.g. auto soil sensor, 5 wash cycles including overnight and eco-wash cycles, direct feed wash system, large capacity, and others. It has everything I need in a dishwasher. The only thing I'm not sure about is the filter system it has instead of a food disposer; I hope I don't have to clean it out more than every couple of months, not that it looks difficult, I'm just lazy. I installed it myself and that was fairly easy; although I don't like the hose-type inlet water fitting on the machine which made it difficult to attach the water hose without having it leak. The user instructions that came with it don't seem to be the right ones as they don't cover all of the cycles, etc. and is different than the one that you can download on line. Not a big deal but it's odd. It seems to clean very well and is quiet; you can hardly hear the pump running. It's appears to be a good value for the price and I like it very well so far!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans well. Quiet. Silverware holder inadequate. Our "good" rating assumes you have checked that your silverware will fit in the holder (see comments below). The dishwasher seems solid and well constructed. Even with the energy saving features it cleans very well. The cycle time is somewhat longer than our previous washer, but this is not a problem for us. The unit is extremely quiet, which is nice. The dry feature works well, but we found we could skip it and let the dishes air dry with the door opened a small amount. An issue we are still coping with is the generic, equally spaced tines in the racks. There is little flexibility in the way to arrange dishes. The upper rack has room for one row of bowls in the center with glasses and mugs on the sides. The bottom rack can only hold one row of dinner dishes in the central area. There is no good place for large casserole dishes and pans. If you place them at the back, the dinner dishes are pushed forward making it impossible to load anything other than very small dishes in front of them. Some of the higher priced models have more flexible rack setups that would probably resolve this. The big disappointment is the silverware holder, which is nearly useless for us, as the slots are too narrow in two of the three rows to hold our very average sized silverware. If we hadn't saved the holder from our previous dishwasher (and been fortunate enough that it fit in the rack of this one), this purchase would have been a disaster. Be sure you check for this problem before purchasing this model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not happy with this model. I love whirlpool products and have always been happy until I bought this unit. The silverware basket located on the inside of the door is not convenient at all and I end up leaving it out until ready to run or inside the bottome basket. My silverware does not fit in the predesigned holes. My handles are to big and so I have to leave the lids open. The soap dispenset actually blocks a portion of the silverware holder on the left side. My dishes come out pretty wet even using the heat dry option. The glasses sit very flat on the top rack and it does not allow the water to run off the bottom and they are always left with puddles. I would not buy this unit again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from just what I wanted My local retailer suggested this model when I told him what I was looking for: something that will last and not break down in a few years (as my last three had), the best dishwasher manufacturer he could recommend, lots of room, not wanting a lot of complicated features (like my last one from a different manufacturer which was expensive but didn't last more than a year and a half#, not expensive and for frequent use. Then I checked out other models at a big appliance store and read everything from consumer reports to individual reviews and I came up with the same model. So far so good. It is much quieter and we can barely hear it outside of the kitchen. It dries everything better, even plastics and everything comes out clean. The only criticisms I have are that sometimes it is hard to tell what is lit up due to the color and hue of the lights on the right, like when it is brightest on washing, it lights up drying too a little. The gray color of the tub and racks make them hard to see #maybe I need new glasses) and the anywhere silverware rack is hard to put in and take out from it's space on the door. If I put anything but a teaspoon on the left and I lift out the rack, it gets caught on the detergent dispenser. And sometimes the rack comes apart and I have to snap it back into place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great washer needs some design tweaks Fantastic cleaning on pots, baked-on food, etc. I like the several options for washing cycles & choosing delay. However: Silverware feature has a clumsy handle which interferes with loading & removal of two central sections; all dividers have gaps large enough to trap silverware, again making removal difficult, yet dividers are not tall enough to keep all silverware upright. None of the prongs on either shelf are moveable (upright or lay-down) to allow for better loading of larger or odd-shape items. Door hinge/spring too tight, causing door to pull upward and thrust lower shelf (even when somewhat loaded) back into the washer. Soap dispenser cover does not click shut easily, often requiring two hands (one to hold the door flat and the other to manually latch the dispenser cover). Other than cleaning quality (which is excellent) this is not an easy dishwasher to love.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low price but poor quality We are a retired couple living on a fixed income so could not afford the higher priced washer. This cost was about the same as the last washer we bought 7 years ago that we were very happy with. This model doesn't have the top spray, or the covered racks so you can load things on top of rack. The silverware tray is on the door and things fall out when you open the door. Since it doesn't load as well, I'm running it every day where before it was every other day. I rinse everything before loading and even then some things don't get clean. If I had it to do over, I would purchase the higher priced model even though it was almost double the cost. The only positive thing is it is very quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peacfully Quiet, SUPER performance Love the cleanable filter at the bottom rather than hard food disposer. Less parts to break down! Great features for our families needs. Unit is very quiet. I could barely hear trickling water. It was actually peaceful! We have a very large family with 6 children and can comfortably fit dishes with it's large capacity. Dishes all came out super hot and amazingly clean. Silverware holder is difficult for the kids to get use to when loading\unloading. Many times we just flip up the holder and it works great. Thanks Whirlpool for another great product!
