Fingerprint-Resistant Steel Dishwasher with Third Level Rack

We designed dishwashers with flexible features like the Sensor cycle that detects soils in your load then picks the right wash and dry settings for the kind of clean you need.

Take advantage of 35% more rack space to load more dishes and get extra room for hard to fit items (Compared to WHIRLPOOL dishwashers without a third level rack).

TotalCoverage spray arm

Cleans with over 20 jets for more coverage while a smarter sequence of spray patterns from multiple nozzles hits your dishes with increased water pressure.

Sensor cycle

Automatically selects the right wash and dry settings for your load by using two separate sensors to measure temperature, soil level and load size.

1-Hour Wash cycle

Cleans dishes in half the time (Compared to Normal cycle with lightly soiled load) so your plates, pans and glasses are thoroughly cleaned up in just an hour.

Fully loaded dishwasher with door open, lower rack out and Tap Touch controls easily visible along the top edge of the door.

Tap Touch controls

Clean these controls as easily as you use them.

Asked by AJM990 January 21, 2021
2
Answers

Hi AJM990, usually if people are having this issue, it's because they are not using a rinse aid like Jet Dry, which helps to dry the dishes and interior of the unit. If that access moisture is still present when they close the door, it may cause the issues reported. Rinse aid causes a sheeting action that does not allow water to stick to the porous surfaces of the dishes and walls. Additionally, we do recommend using a product like Affresh to clean and deodorize the unit at least once a month. We hope this helps!

Just Wow... This Whirlpool Dishwasher!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] There is so much room inside. The utensil receptacle on the door is innovative in space saving design. Then the 3rd tray pull out is special and allows for smaller delicate things to not be lost in the cycle. It's beautiful and cleans perfectly.

Absolutely Love My New Whirlpool Dishwasher !!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought the Whirlpool dishwasher specifically because of the 3rd rack on the top that we can use for plastic utensils. It provides an extra space and won't harm the utensils. The dishwasher is so quiet that you can hardly tell that it is running. I also like how clean and spot free the dishes are when done.
by sueme3

Every day another piece breaks off of this dishwasher. I’m very disappointed that I listened to all those reviews. Seems like they received the dishwasher for free and reviewed immediately - this dishwasher worked great for a month and now is falling apart. I want to return it and go back to the one I had! It barely works and I’ve been using it for 4 months. Feels like I was scammed.

Great Features
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love my new dishwasher. The only reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 is because a small button-like part fell off from the left side inner frame of the dishwasher leaving this circular area open because the button would not fit back into the opening. The button on the right side is snuggly in place. By operating the dishwasher with this button missing to keep this opening covered as it was with delivery I pray that I am not causing any damage to my 3 month old appliance because this open area is not covered.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So happy with this dishwasher. It’s so quiet you forget it’s even running.
by MSS-PS
Very attractive, quiet, cleans well
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was purchased for a total kitchen remodel. It’s beautiful and works well. The plumber I hired to install it made a mistake and didn’t install it back far enough and now the clips to install it correctly were thrown away. Although it could go back a little farther, it still looks beautiful and seems to be working we’ll we run it sometimes twice a day with our large family. Didn’t think I would like the utensil basket on the door but love it. There is tons of room for more dishes when you utilize the door for the utensil basket and the third rack is perfect for large spatulas, spoons or lids and they stay in place. It turns an otherwise wasted space in most dishwashers to a usable space!
