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.

Front Control Dishwasher in White with Anyware Plus Silverware Basket is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 5684.

Purchased on the website, delivered to the house, DIY installation: everything went as expected - except the water inlet connection. The dishwasher performs well. I thought the location of the silverware basket was unusual but everything comes out clean and there's more room in the racks. The water inlet is like a garden hose: 3/4" x 11-1/2 TPI. Whirlpool sells a connector separately but you can probably find an adaptor, bushing, and elbow at a local hardware store. Be mindful, though: there isn't much vertical space below the water inlet.

I bought this dishwasher on sale to replace the Whirlpool DW I already had, which worked fine after 10yrs except detergent dispenser wouldn't open when cycle was started. It fit into the space perfectly. This replacement---same brand---same size: 18" built-in---doesn't fit into the space properly (had to have installers return to adjust and still doesn't fit); plus I'm not even sure the dry cycle works. Whether on "Hi-Temp" dry or "Heated Dry" the interior is still wet or damp when cycle is complete. Have to dry by hand before putting dishes away. "I" should be paid to have to put up with it.

Unfortunately, I can't give a real review of this dishwasher because it was not installed. First Delivery Attempt, the Installer informed me that we have to have a dual valve shut off installed under the sink before they could install the dishwasher. Dishwasher was loaded back into truck. My husband went to Home Depot to buy the dual handle shut off valve ; although such valves are listed online, Home Depot does not carry them in the store. My husband drove to Ace Hardware a few miles away and got the valve. Installed the dual shut off and also a new faucet and fixed plumbing under the sink. Second delivery, driver unboxed dishwasher and it had a large dent in lower front. Had to reload on truck and order another one. Third delivery, new installer looked at placement of proposed dishwasher (where prior dishwasher had functioned well for 20 years) and informed me that he could not install it because dryer venting behind posed a hazard. But I could install it myself, absolving Home Depot of potential liability. I said, never mind, I want a refund. This might be a good unit, but I will never know.

This dishwasher does not dry the dishes very good and the silverware handles are always wet. Would not recommend this Whirlpool dishwasher, It came with our new home and I have tried every setting in the book and it still doesn't dry good, and I always wash my dishes off before putting in the dishwasher. We have tried and used it for almost 3 months and no setting makes any different, we even have to dry off the inside of the door because it is to wet.

Pros: This dishwasher is the best one we have ever had. Very quiet. Glasses and silverware sparkle. Never have to rewash anything. Has a button lock feature which is great to keep the grandkids from changing cycles Cons: Silverware basket is smaller than last dishwasher.. Needs a bigger one.

The two individuals who showed up were lazy and were not in the mood to install the Whirlpool dishwasher, even though I had prepaid for this service! Home Depot needs to get involved with who they are associating with, or their reputation will be tarnished. Home Depot's service group left me no choice but to install the dishwasher myself. (Of course it took me much longer than a pro). It is very quiet, and it has ample features for the price. My previous dishwasher lasted 19 years, which is exceptional. I will be fully satisfied if this one lasts 10 years.

Have only had the DW for a few weeks, but so far it works well and looks great for the price. Installation was timely and friendly. The machine is very quiet, and has just a few basic settings, which I really like. I have two complaints. 1) the top left rack rail was installed backwords, so I had to take it apart, and figure out how to get it flipped. It took about 30 minutes to fix, and to put the rails back on. This brings me the second issue. 2) the gray plastic end caps that keep the rack from sliding right off and crashing are flimsy, tricky to attach, and fall off easily. One has come off 4 times and one of these days one will break or get stepped on. I am going to request a bunch of replacements from Home Depot to have on hand. You can see the cap in the picture below. The DW is the same as our former Sears elite which was still working fine after 15 years, but we wanted a stainless look. Hope this one does as well!
