Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dishwasher [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So far, so good. We wanted a fairly inexpensive dishwasher that also works well and this model more than meets our expectations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just About Perfect [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is just about perfect. Has quick wash setting as well as heavy duty. Easy to operate. The best thing for me is it is extremely quiet! Only thing is the drying isn’t the best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dishwasher [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I don’t care for it because it doesn’t dry after it takes HOURS JUST TO WASH

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, except… [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was so excited to finally have a dishwasher! I’m 36 and have never had one, so it really feels like a luxury! Unfortunately, it stopped rinsing after just a couple of weeks. I was able to take advantage of the warranty (which is very good) and it was super simple to arrange for the repair. Since being fixed, it is excellent! Plus, I love that it is American made!!!

It would’ve been nice if the sales person told us we needed to purchase an electric cord. Never thought it wouldn’t be already with the machine. Waited 5 weeks for delivery of dishwasher now have to wait another 2 weeks for the cord. I would’ve thought if you enter the dishwasher code it would also state you need additional items. Very disappointed
Asked by: Itselectric
I purchased online and was clearly told I must purchase the new cord if I wanted it installed.

Dishwasher is not draining, what is going on?

Dishwasher is not draining, what is going on?
Asked by: Seal
two major causes. the filter drain across the bottom of the washer might be clogged , or and most likely the air gap in your drain hose is not positioned correctly.It must be above your pluming connection for it to function correctly.

It doesn't seem possible to adjust the top rack height on this model or am I missing something?

Asked by: MC52
Hello, In the use and care guide for this unit there are instructions to adjust the rack. I have pasted the instructions to do this below: EZ-2-Lift™ Top Rack Adjuster (on some models) You can raise or lower the top rack to fit tall items in either the top or bottom rack. Adjusters are located on each side of the top rack. To raise or lower the rack with adjuster 1 Hold the top rack with one hand near the adjuster and use the other hand to pull out the top of the adjuster. Raise or lower the rack to one of the preset positions. To raise the rack with adjuster 2 Lift and pull up. To lower the rack Lift up and let down. NOTE: The top rack must be level. -Whirlpool Central Advisors
