why does water pour from door? Brand new machine.

why does water pour from door? Brand new machine.
Asked by: Claisse
Check the rubber insulation strip where the machine meets the door. It often will be loose or partially detached.

Does this unit offer the one-hour quick wash? Does the one-hour wash also dry the dishes? How much water does one cycle use?
Asked by: Renaissancegal
Yes, this dishwasher features a one hour quick wash. There is a heated dry option for drying the dishes. One quick cycle uses 3.2 gallons of water.

Can I only dry my dishes using this dishwasher after I wash dishes myself? we normally don’t have many dishes tho.

Asked by: Michiko
The drying sequence isn't great, but it does sort of work if you don't overload the machine. I often hand-dry larger items.

We just purchased this dishwasher and it keeps beeping every minute or so. Can you please tell me how to get it to stop or why it is beeping? We tried cancelling, etc. but now we are running it just to stop the beeping.
Asked by: Sharon
You may have opened it in the middle of a drying cycle and it thinks you need to close the door to complete it. Push the stop button to end the cycle.

Customer Reviews

Front Control Built-In Compact Dishwasher in Monochromatic Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub, 50 dBA is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 611.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does a good job and is quiet, but takes forever. This dishwasher does a pretty good job washing. It's nice and quiet and I was happy with it, other than it taking a really long time. One hour wash uses a LOT of water, and everything comes out soaking wet unless you add a dry cycle, which extends the cycle significantly. The normal cycle takes at minimum 3 hours and 15 minutes, if you use the drying cycle. It does a pretty good job though. I've had it take over 4 hours in some cases. Unfortunately, the circulation motor completely died and the dishwasher doesn't even realize it. As a result, it fills with water, then does nothing, drains again, then fills again, and so on. The motor is so expensive to replace that it's not worth repairing, so it's going to the landfill and will be replaced by a different model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet! We just ran this dishwasher once as we have not moved into the new condo where it is installed. It seemed to work well - a little early to assess performance completely - but I will say that it is extremely quiet. This is a real plus, as this kitchen is a small one, in a small condo. If the past is any judge, our Whirlpool dishwasher (full size) at our current home is over 10 years old, and has given us faultless service. That's why we picked Whirlpool again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing great... We've had this about 6 months and have had to call for repair due to incomplete draining. Prior to the service call, this dishwasher was super quiet, but after is noticeably louder. The quiet feature was a huge deciding factor when we purchased it & now we're disappointed with it. As far as cleaning goes, it's ok. Sometimes it cleans well, sometimes it doesn't. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features sleek design I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I love the look and the features. My only complaint is the capacity and lack of adjustable racks. My old Kenmore dishwasher which I had for 18 years held more dishes and had adjustable racks. The whirlpool WDF540PADM out of stock at the time represented better value with its larger capacity, similar features and plastic interior. Whirlpool should have made the interior racks the same for this machine. Good thing my lower rack from my old machine fits the new machine. Overall I am pleased with my purchase and will be replacing my white Kenmore products with stainless steel whirlpool appliances as I continue to update my kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except for cleaning on top rack The only thing I don't care for is the fact that the cereal bowls must be rinsed off really well or they don't all get clean on the top rack. Also, can I use environmentally friendly pods and rinse aid instead of Cascade? I really don't like the smell of Cascade. Also, my old dishwasher held more. The main reason I bought this one was because it came in bisque to match my existing appliances. Also, the title says 1-Hour Wash Cycle... it actually is more like two and a half to three hours. It is very quiet though. And, except for what I mentioned, I like it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, matches other equipment well Using it for a month now and we are pleased so far. Very quiet with many settings to choose from. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet and excellent cleaning This dishwasher is very quiet and it cleans dishes effectively. However, loading dishes in this dishwasher is only fair. The problem is that soup bowels do not remain upright between the tines. The tines need to be redesigned closer together to allow for effective loading of dishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans great Had my dishwasher installed a few days ago. I usually don't put pans in,but gave it a try. The dishes and pans came out sparkly clean. I was very impressed. I would recommend this to anybody in the market for an 18" dishwasher. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
