Front Control Built-in Tall Tub Dishwasher in White with 1-Hour Wash Cycle, 55 dBA is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8466.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Dish Washer. Cleans well, and is very quiet. Be warned if replacing an older dish washer. This is a high efficiency, HE, dish washer not high performance. In other words, it doesn't dry the dishes the same way as older models. We called Whirlpool after a week, and a service technician came out. We thought the heating element was broken. Our old unit would sizzle if water was dropped on it when drying. The service technician said to me: "here, feel this". The heating element gets warm but not sizzling hot like older units. New units are HE, with plastic tubs instead of steel or ceramic. The tub would melt and it would not be energy efficient if designed like older units. Ours didn't dry dishes until the service technician told me about the sterile rinse option. That uses the heating element during rinsing, which raises the temperature and evaporates the water during drying. In other words, the dishes dry themselves during the dry cycle, not the heating element. FYI before calling in a service technician.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Dishwasher With One Flaw Our previous dishwasher gave out on us, and I am just not a fan of handwashing dishes. My husband found this dishwasher at Lowes. It was easy for him to install. What I like about this dishwasher is how quiet it is as well as how clean our dishes are after we run them through. Our previous dishwasher would clean the dishes... but this dishwasher really cleans the dishes. Just the other day, I put a dirty meatloaf pan in the dishwasher because I wanted to see how it clean it would get - and it got incredibly clean. In regards to noise, the first time we ran the dishwasher we opened it after a few minutes because we didn't think it was working. It was working and it's just that quiet! What I don't like about the dishwasher is the detergent compartment flap gets caught on the top rack when I'm opening the dishwasher. This design flaw is small, but I'm concerned that at some point it might break if someone opens the dishwasher with too much force. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to operate....looks great I replaced my non-working (non-Whirlpool) dishwasher with this model and found it easy to install and simple to operate. I like that it does not have a spray wand on the top, which prevents you from putting tall things on the top shelf, however, I have but two small complaints. The first one is that one of the retaining clips on the top rack broke after about two weeks of use....not a big deal, I put a wire tie on it temporarily and order a replacement on Repair Clinic.com, since I did not want to mess with the warranty process. The other (and this is not a knock on the dishwasher itself) but this model has the silverware rack on the door....not a bad idea, but it gets to be a pain in the neck when you load it, as you have to either take it off the door, load the silverware last or keep moving the bottom rack in and out to load the silverware. Other than that, this is a good dishwasher for the price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I also like how there is a ton of space. The door is not flimsy, it can be left open a few inches or more in any position(see pic). Couple of things I don't like is that it does not dry the dishes all the way and I feel the top rack should have another enclosure piece/flap to keep dishes in their place. 1 flap is not enough for me because I wash a lot of tupperware that easily gets flipped over. (see pic for tupperware container flipped over and filled with dirty water) It should be noted after installation the door hinges needed lubricant badly. The door was hard to get open and it made a horrible screeching sound when opening. I sprayed WD40 on the hinges and that did the trick!

All else being equal, technique makes all the difference. The first 3 photos show how I loaded the dishwasher with two meals' worth of dishes for my wife and me. Details are in the captions. Normal cycle, High Temp and Heat Dry options, 1 scoop of Bubble Bandit detergent (Google it) in the main wash chamber. Didn't purge the hot water line. The last photo shows the result of a torture test. A workman's mug crusted with coffee and almond milk residue was deliberately placed in the right rear corner of the top rack farthest from the reach of the wash arm. Aside from color balancing the images in GIMP, they are otherwise unaltered. Load it right, feed it right, and it'll treat you and your dishes right.

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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased in September, 2018. Installed by a licensed plumber. It replaced a Whirlpool that did ... Purchased in September, 2018. Installed by a licensed plumber. It replaced a Whirlpool that did just fine with our dishwasher loading practices, detergent brand. and water heater settings ... I was surprised and disappointed with this appliance's performance. To be blunt, it does not reliably get dishes clean, even with heavy cycle, extra hot wash, sanitizing rinse, rinse agent set to maximum, and running the water at the faucet until it is hot. Between having to prewash instead of just scraping off the food, rewashing about 10% of any load, setting the water heater higher, and having to use the high-energy features to even get a 90% clean load, this is not saving any energy at all. PROOF: The attached photo is of a refrigerator container that had held roasted onions and potatoes. It was dirty side down, not dried out, nothing blocking it, facing the upper spray arm, and stayed dirty through the "heavy" wash cycle.
