Customer Questions & Answers

Does this dishwasher have an air dry option?

Asked by: ld23

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

Asked by: Anonymous
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: Anonymous
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.

Customer Reviews

Front Control Dishwasher in White is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I replaced a non-functioning 40yr old KitchenAid unit with this Whirlpool. Besides being happy to have a useable dishwasher again, this one is great. Saves me lots of water over the old model and is so quiet. I like the versatility of being able to put the silverware holder in different places. Adjustable top rack is a plus also. I didn't want a unit with all the 'bells and whistles' . This one still has a lot of optional features for different sized loads. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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 So Many Pluses Have only had this product just over a month and the quiet feature is at the top of my list. Dishes come out so clean they look brand new - well, okay, another top of my list item. Love the movable cutlery tray and roominess for dishes with only one exception - I find the design for the trays that hold dishes just don't take into consideration things like cereal and soup bowls. That is a feature that needs work as I'm always fighting to fit them in. Thank you for this opportunity to tell you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good, Not Great This dishwasher does a good job of getting dishes clean and doing so efficiently. However, it has more drawbacks than redeeming features. It's not as easy to load as we thought it would be, due in large part to design of the racks. The silverware container on the door wasn't very well conceived, as we can't put anything too long (like a butter knife) in front of the soap dispenser, or the dispenser door won't open. In addition, water stays at the bottom of the silverware container, so that we have to wipe the silverware dry, when it's already supposed to be dry. Finally, the overall drying action is very poor, as water pools into the bottom of our coffee cups, and any other cup with a curved base, so that we have to dry them all before taking them out. We did not have any of these problems with our prior dishwasher, which was made by a competitor. But we were trying to save a little money and so we purchased this one instead of the same machine we had, which was still available. I definitely feel like we got what we paid for, and will just spend the extra money next time to get a better machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT This is the best dishwasher I have ever had!! I use the 1 hour wash and my dishes come out spotless. I never use the drying function and always open the door to let my dishes air dry. I would jot hesitate to by another Whirlpool dishwasher. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Running fine. As it should. Bought new Nov. 2012. First "trouble" now-Feb. 2016. Looks like the water drain is partially clogged. Came on here to look for videos to get at the drain hose and put a coat hanger in it or something to see if it's clogged. Otherwise...happy, happy. Working fine, quiet, all that stuff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointment The machine we purchased is a very quiet one, which is nice--almost silent operation when it's cleaning dishes. However...(1) the silverware bay is inadequate, in our estimation. It is difficult to load if one follows the instructions that came with the machine; and there really isn't enough room in the silverware bay for our family's needs. Also, (2) the machine's capacity is smaller than the machine it replaced, making it necessary for us to either do dishes more frequently or else to use paper, disposable plates and plastic-ware, when we entertain family or company. We think that we probably shouldn't have purchased this particular machine, in hindsight.
