  • Horrible dishwasher
    by DIYKING

    on January 14, 2020

    We bought this in March of 2019 as of January 2020 it has had the main pump replaced and now the door seal. It’s has never dried the silverware or the dishes completely, no mater what cycle we use. It is very quiet, but who cares if it’s not working! I lodged a complaint before Halloween 2019 and it’s now January 2020 and they are still trying to fix it, it was down all through the Holidays. I wish I could get my money back. I will NEVER BUY WHIRLPOOL AGAIN! Worst appliance I’ve ever had! Waste of money!

  • Needed dishwasher this one does the trick
    by Mamacita1

    I like this dishwasher. It cleans. The dishwasher has three racks. The third rack is ok but takes up a lot of room. I would have made the tub taller to compensate for the third rack. Only small and flat items fit. Don’t put anything in the center, that blocks the sprayer on the top. I use it for small lids, long knives, spatulas and my pizza cutter. The good thing is the third rack can be removed and the second rack can be adjusted. I like that the utensil basket can be mounted on the door or to the bottom rack. The rack holes are too narrow for some of my utensils but the basket lids can be opened so you can bunch them together. Buttons are hidden and can be locked so no accidental turning on of controls. Nice stainless face with sleek arm. I haven’t noticed any problems with fingerprints.

  • Christmas 2019 Purchase

    from Duncan on January 7, 2020

    I have owned this dishwasher for a few weeks now, and I am very disappointed with the performance of this dishwasher. It just doesn't clean the dishes very well. I always scrape my dishes and give them a quick rinse, so the dishes are not that dirty going in. After the dishwasher has run, the dishes look clean from a distance, but have brownish, streaky, baked on smears when I look close. Typically about half of the load looks like this. I have tried different settings, loading the dishwasher differently, and putting in half loads to ensure every dish gets a direct spray from the jets, but nothing seems to be working. I am also disappointed in the third rack, which is so shallow it really only holds butter knives, and does not even hold those well. The prongs to hold the dishes in place on the third rack are too short to hold anything up, so knives are constantly falling onto their sides, and then only one side gets cleaned. On the positive side, this dishwasher is quiet, looks good, and it dries the dishes really well. However, none of those make up for the poor job of cleaning the dishes that it does. I wish that I went with a different make and model of dishwasher, and I hope that this review will be informative to others who are considering this dishwasher.
