Poorly made and designed
As others have stated this units capacity is small. Any sizable items fill it quickly. No proper place for glasses. Does not seem to dry quickly and after only 6 months the liquid dispenser door is broken and does not shut anymore so liquid just spills out. Door is very light and feels cheaply made. You can do much better in this price range.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This replaced an older Kenmore Dishwasher and I am so pleased with it. No noise and everything that goes into it comes out spotless.

      TERRIBLE DISHWASHER! Bought another Whirlpool for around the same cost and it is superb!
      Worse dishwasher ever! Small in depth; placement of prongs to hold items almost useless.

          washes ok but dish racks are poorly designed
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had this dishwasher about a month. It washes ok but the way the dish racks are set up is bad design. The silverware basket is in the middle of the bottom rack and due to its location it does not allow for a lot of large plates or other odd size serving dishes. It would be better if the basket was on the side like most dishwashers. The tines on the top rack are too short so a lot of the time glasses wind up falling over in the wash and don't get completely cleaned.
            Easy to Use
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The dishwasher is easy to use and is relatively quiet during operation. It has a clean appearance.
              Quiet and Super Clean!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had our Whirlpool Dishwasher for about 3 years and I absolutely love it! It is so quiet that sometimes we don't even know it's running. Over half the time I use the hour wash cycle and everything comes out sparkling clean! The rest of the time we use the regular wash cycle and our dishes, silverware and plastic containers are clean, clean clean!

                Not impressed
                I needed an ADA dishwasher because new flooring reduced my floor-to-countertop clearance. After reading the specifications on many ADA dishwasher brands I chose the Whirlpool WDR550SAHB because it had fewer options (hopefully less to break down) and because the installation information indicated the leveling legs can adjusted to accommodate a 32.5 to 34 inch opening. Installer said that although the legs "CAN" be adjusted high enough to fill a 34” opening he did not recommend it because the legs are plastic. Fully extended plastic legs frequently break. So now I have a gap between the dishwasher and the countertop which I have to disguise with a trim board. Hard wired power cord installation is a struggle due to the dedicated channel under the dishwasher. Local stores do not have this model on display and pictures on the internet do not adequately show the very disappointing rack design. Whirlpool engineers should have to actually use the products they design!! The goal of this rack design appears be allowing Whirlpool to state that this smaller dishwasher can still accommodate 12 place settings rather than providing good, useable space for real-world dishes. This is the biggest negative for me since I have to deal with it daily. The prongs for plates are VERY close together (thin plates only) and all the others prongs are poorly spaced. Almost none of my pans or large bowls will fit. The rollers on the bottom rack don’t have guides to keep them on a track so the rack usually slips off the track when it is pulled out onto the open door. I have experimented with different cycles and different loads for a year. I rinse the dishes before loading and dishes have always come out clean.It does have a cycle memory as stated, but it's NEVER WORKED and the memory function doesn’t include the heat dry “option” which I have to manually turn off with every load. The dishwasher is surprisingly quiet, but my old dishwasher was 25 years old. I hope this dishwasher lives up to Whirlpool’s claim that “No other brand has had fewer dishwasher repairs in last 20 years” because so far it’s a disappointing choice.
