How loud is the dishwasher

can you have a normal conversation in the same small room without having to raise your voice? The decimal number won't help unless you can give me the most quiet number to the loudest. Thank you

Can this dishwasher be hard wired or does it require an outlet?

Looking to purchase this dishwasher but the old one I have is hard wired. Does this one require an outlet? Will the installers install it hard wired? Thank you
Asked by: Merlin21
It could be hardwired but check with your city code dept to be sure.

Opening the dishwasher

It's not installed yet but, I can't open it! There is no release in the handle. The delivery guy opened it for me and then closed it again! Any advise?
Asked by: Vicktron
I never tried to open it before it was installed but I would imagine it opens the same as when it is installed - pull on the center of the door. There is an opening to put your fingertips in.

Home Depot offered good price on Whirlpool so I made the purchase. Delivery crew delivered on time but they told me installation could not be done due to the shutoff valve under kitchen sink not compatible with the new dishwasher. The plumber charged $320 for installation of compatible shutoff valve. The Home Depot crew came back installed the dishwasher and started it. The dish looks clean but all wet. Anyway, the $278 dishwasher, plus accessories, delivery, installation, tax, plumber fee and all cost me around $800. If you still have the old copper line shutoff valve I would not recommend this product.

Have had it 1 week and is working great. Very quiet operation compared to other dishwashers I've had over the years. I've read some say the dishes don't come out dry, but I followed the instructions to use a rinse aid and I just use the normal wash cycle and everything comes out dry, except for plastics, which I've never had come out dry in any dishwashers I've had. Easy to use controls that remember your last settings so you don't have to re-enter them each time. I would recommend it. If my opinion changes I'll try to post an update.

We just purchased this dishwasher 2 days ago, the install even hard wiring it was a breeze. Its a light weight dishwasher, purchased it after having a black whirlpool switched back to white due to the pain of cleaning the black one all the time. My one complaint is that this dishwasher is tiny inside. It says it will fit dishes for 14?? No way no how, not unless your smashing each dish first. Its half the size of my last whirlpool yet the outside is the same size. Its normal sounding for a dishwasher. If I could return it I would only to purchase a larger version. After installing its not worth the time to uninstall the wiring and all the tubing plus hubby picked it out so he gets to wash all the dishes that do not fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Dishwasher This is a good dishwasher, not excellent. I like the different features and that it remembers your last feature selection. We run it at night and it is quiet enough. I don't like the bright blue light that greets me in the morning when it is complete. I do have to keep a towel in hand when I empty it to dap the water off the plastic and the silverware. It took a little bit to find the best place for the silverware basket. I was expecting the overall price of dishwashers to be lower but with installation and delivery, this becomes a major appliance. Next time I will probably expect it to be more expensive and go with one that dries a little better. Overall, I am happy with the price I paid and what I got.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Dishwasher, Don't buy it I always thought a whirlpool dishwasher would be a good value but this dishwasher is the cheapest made dishwasher I have ever seen. It is all plastic on the outside. It feels like its going to fall apart at any given time.

It is quiet and efficient, and if you follow the directions on loading, your dishes will come out clean and with very little water at all if you choose to air dry. Home Depot specified pick up of old unit and installation of new unit, but did not specify that we had to disconnect the old unit ourselves. They left both units in our kitchen and came back a separate day to pick up the old unit after we disconnected the old one. We installed the new one ourselves. Installation process was a 6 out of 10. The Whirlpool manual was not for the unit specifically, but for the family of units, requiring some guess work to figure it all out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product and value! I installed this myself in about 30 mins. The front fascia was a bit large for the opening, but once I got it in, it looked great. I really like the multiple settings and low noise level without needing to pay top dollar. This a great mid-range product that was priced well and many good features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet, gets the job done! This is a less expensive model without a lot of frills. We were concerned when we found out the top rack is NOT adjustable (we have large cutting boards for the bottom) but so far everything has fit. The silverware basket is a little more restrictive than we are use to due to the predetermined slots, but that has kept everything clean! We noticed it doesn't dry as well as our previous machine and the manufacture recommends a drying aid be added. We aren't use to that step, but we might try. Most suprisingly, it is far more quiet than our previous unit. We are quite pleased.
