Dishes sparkle!
Customer review from whirlpool.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased this dishwasher over a month ago. Installation was straightforward and instructions and necessary parts were provided. We have granite countertops, so side brackets that mount the dishwasher to the cabinet wall were included. The racks are much better than our old Maytag dishwasher, with glasses allowed to rest securely no matter their size or shape. It’s relatively quiet- not as quiet as a Bosch dishwasher we used to have, but not bad. The most impressive feature is how sparkling clean our dishes are! It’s really the most important reason you buy a dishwasher in the first place, and this unit delivers in spades.

The Whirlpool Top Control Built-In tall tub dishwasher does a great job of cleaning my dishes and flatware. I really like the clean front look of the top control feature. It is easy to set and run. The dishwasher is also much more quiet than my former Whirlpool Gold unit. I especially like the top tray for utensils that slides out. It can accomodate larger items like ladels and serving spoons. There is also a bottom rack mounted basket on the right side for flatware or utensils if you have a large number to clean. The adjustable feature of the folding racks is nice if you have larger pans or pots to wash. I have filled it up on a number of occasions and everything comes out looking great. The installation was straight-forward and it used all of the connecting points from the old dishwasher. There were no issues with the connections. Got most of the fittings I needed on a trip to the Home Depot plumbing aisle. I like this unit and it should give good service for years to come. Quiet and good looking. I like it!

This is a fantastic washing machine! We installed this in our kitchen we are renovating and did all the install ourselves. This unit does not come with a power cord (you can buy one or hardwire it in) and it does not come with a water supply line. Despite that, we are very happy with it. Installation was pretty easy and straightforward- it didn’t take us very long to get it up and running. I did drill one large 2-3/8” hole for all of the lines instead of the three holes they recommend (2 at 1-1/2” and 1 at 1/2”) in the side of the cabinet and this seemed to work well. The washer runs for a little over an hour on the quick cycle and over three hours on the regular. This is a while but I believe this actually uses less energy. The dishes have come out perfectly clean with no pre-washing. We love the top tray for cookie trays and pans - it’s so nice to have those there or long tongues/cooking utensils and not JW ring to worry about them being too tall. All in all - fantastic unit!!

Just finished my kitchen remodel. Replaced my dishwasher, stove, and microwave. My house was built in 2001 with the original appliances from GE. Ever since I bought the house in 2009 I've wanted to replace that LOUD dishwasher. I've always liked whirlpool appliances and never had any issues with their products and they last years. When I had the kitchen remodeled I knew I would be replacing the appliances. I did my homework months before the remodel, comparing other brands, quality, features and price. Also the reviews from consumers choices. What was the most important for me was the noise level. Did a lot of research regarding the decibel (dB) levels. For my kitchen and living area are in one room. My old GE washer was so loud you couldn't have a conversation or hear the T.V. without yelling over it or turning the volume up for the T.V. It was like having a truck idling in your kitchen or a plain taking off. That's how I would describe it. I wanted a dishwasher with the features I wanted, low (dB) sound level noise and a price I could afford in my budget. I wasn't looking for an over priced dishwasher with all the features I was looking for. This dishwasher was everything I wanted and the price was reasonable and in my budget. It's simple and most of all the noise level is better than I expected! (47-dB) So quiet I could barely hear it. In fact the house has to be absolutely quiet in order to hear that it is running. I don't even know it's running! This is a quality choice if you are looking for a simple dishwasher with a little more features, quietness and reasonably priced. I've ran this dishwasher a few times now and I'm very happy with it. Plus whirlpool is an American made product!

This Whirlpool dishwasher is absolutely beautiful. It has clean lines and a nice-looking stainless steel wash tub. It's extremely quiet and easy to operate. It has smart features such as a delayed wash and sanitizing rinse cycle, high-temperature wash functions, and multiple drying cycles. There's an easy-to-read digital display that is built into the top edge of the door. I especially like this feature because the control panel is not visible on the face of the door to interrupt the modern appearance of this appliance. I installed this dishwasher myself and, for the most part, installation was extremely easy and straightforward. There are actually very few steps and, with the included replacement water line and power supply kit, I had everything I needed to successfully install this dishwasher. Only a few simple tools were needed. What's more, Whirlpool provides a QR code inside the installation manual that links you to an official installation video. The video runs about 25 minutes, covers everything in the printed instructions, includes several helpful tips, and couldn't be more easy to follow along with. The video can be viewed here: https://www.kaltura.com/index.php/extwidget/preview/partner_id/1661131/uiconf_id/40218121/entry_id/1_ekowyod1/embed/dynamic? If I were to have any criticism about this appliance, though, it would be that the insulation blanket that remains on the appliance as it is installed under the cabinet can be difficult and cumbersome. To be fair, the instruction video addresses this and suggests the use of a spade-like tool to guide the insulation into the cabinet well. With a tight-fitting installation (as was the case with my old cabinetry), this proved to be a bit tricky. The tight fit of my kitchen cabinetry also brought to light one more issue. That is that the rubber seal that surrounds the door is not tightly secured to the appliance. I suspect this was for a reason, but pushing the appliance back into the cabinet well repeatedly pulled the seal from the appliance, requiring me to reinstall it several times while attempting to work within a very tight space. Complaints aside, however, I highly recommend this dishwasher. It appears to be very well made, it's quiet, easy to use, and Whirlpool has done a number of things to make installation easier for the do-it-yourselfer and you can hear about them all in the installation video.

Great storage!
Customer review from whirlpool.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased the Whirlpool 3rd Rack Dishwasher in November 2020. This is the best dishwasher because its noise free you can’t even hear it when it’s on. It’s great! The 3rd rack is great for long utensils especially if you bake or grill a lot where you use different size utensils. I would highly recommend this dishwasher.

Super stylish new dishwasher that will give any kitchen a nice update. The stainless steel tub is easy to clean, looks great and is superior for drying. Nice set of features with controls nicely tucked away and hidden on the top of the door panel. Sound blanket reduces the noice made when running. Has a large American flag sticker as Whirlpool is an American company but it is not manufactured in the USA. Would like to have the option of a stainless handle for contrast to the all white. Nice dishwasher from a reputable company.

(What's this)
Our new Whirlpool dishwasher is a fantastic! (It is replacing our Kenmore Elite dishwasher, which after 5 years of use began to have significant problems.) Our new Whirlpool dishwasher has a 3rd rack which frees up space for more dishes in the racks below with easy loading for silverware, hard-to-fit utensils like tongs or even measuring cups and spoons. It has an adjustable 2nd rack to make room for taller items like water bottles with easy-to-find adjusters that smoothly raise or lower the 2nd rack. It has a 3-piece silverware basket to gain extra space in the lower rack for casserole dishes and large pans by moving or separating the 3-piece silverware basket. It is fingerprint resistant, has a leak detection system, and folding tines to create the space that is needed for large dishes or hold down smaller items like lids and measuring cups with folding tines. During the COVID19 pandemic, it is comforting to know that it has a sani-rinse option that sanitizes dishes by eliminating 99.999% of food soil bacteria. We especially like the cycle status Indicator that displays the cycle progress and time remaining in hours and minutes so you know when your dishes will be ready. We were able to install it ourselves.
