Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought this dishwasher in 2019. I bought it because of the 3rd rack, and the silverware holder can be placed on the door and the brand is regarded as reliable. Since then the motor died at the same time I called to get the broken top rack fixed! About 4 months ago the coil to the dishwasher dispenser broke and because of covid I just called to get it fixed today. It doesn't clean well at all unless the dishes are pretty much spotless already with no dried on food. I would recommend against this brand or if you go for it get the extended 4 year warranty like I did or you will be paying for parts and a repairman out of pocket. I regret buying this dishwasher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek and functional (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Have had this for a couple of months now. The controls are on the top of the door so nicely out of the way. You can tell what cycle it is on by the color of the light indicator. The shortest cycle is just over an hour and the longest is 8 hours. Regular wash is just over 3 hours. The dishes come out clean and have been using the rinsing aid so no water spots. Had a bit of an issue initially with the collection cup at the bottom as it kept floating up and getting caught on the blade but was able to finally get the cup securely clicked in and that problem has been resolved. The manual was not very clear on that process.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great until it doesn't (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I bought this unit back in December 2020 and it was a great improvement from my previous dishwasher. The sound levels are close to non-existent and we have had no issues with the quality of the washed dishes. 6 Months in the unit started leaking from a bad gasket\seal (warranty repairman had never seen this issue before nor knew what some of the hoses were for that feed into the overflow tray). My only warning is that the machine is fine but there appears to be a lack of training\documentation on this model if something goes wrong. Currently on our 3rd week without a working dishwasher.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cleans and is quiet, except.... I bought this to replace our 12yr old Sears Kenmore for a kitchen upgrade(the Kenmore still worked great btw). So our new Whirlpool, apart from 3yrs between cleaning cycles options, its quiet and cleans well. The one issue I have is, the dishes after the drying cycle are no drier than if you threw them in a sink full of water,.. HOW could engineers have failed to see this,.. and this dishwasher went into production,.. for shame Whirlpool for shame. My wife wish's we could have our old dishwasher back, and return this lawn sprinkler. I said sorry hun, they probably don't care,.. and look on the bright side, we get to mop the floor every time we run a cycle though the dishwasher.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from anything but quiet ....... I purchased this at the end of January 2022 and it was noisy from the 1st cycle. called for service and was told this is how the dishwasher works??? with every cycle run the unit is getting noisier. the last cycle I measured the noise level c-weighted at 62-76 db at 10 feet distance and 5 feet from the floor. how noisy is it??? 18 feet and 2 rooms, 2 walls away and it can be clearly heard cavitating. the 21 year old GE it replaced was quieter other than during the fill part of the cycle. I should have saved over $450 and bought a standard bottom of the line unit as Whirlpool does not want to deal with this noisy appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality machine (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Very happy with our new dishwasher. When comparing with other brands and models, we liked how smooth the racks glide in and out and overall feel of quality. There's lots of room with adjustable second level rack and the third level is also handy. We were surprised how long the dishwasher cycles take. So I did some research found out this is the norm for modern dishwashers. We turn off the heated dry cycle to save time / energy and have heard this can prolong the dishwashers life. The dishes dry just fine still and its very quiet. The great installation video link provided in manual made the DIY installation easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans Well (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I bought this a couple of months ago. I like the deep tub and the folding tines. The silverware basket is easily moved and has flip up tops as opposed to sliding which is very convenient. I do wish there were more features like Rinse Only. I don't like that the options are cramed to the right side of the board and nothing at all on the rest of the top board. Having the time remaing only visable on the top board it can't be read unless you open the door while its going, very useless. It should be visable from the outside. Overall I like the way it cleans the dishes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dishwasher not working (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) After using the brand new dishwasher once, it stopped working with different 3 error codes. The person came and said they need to order a part. Still waiting for the part after 2 months and still have not used our brand new dishwasher properly. Apparently this model has had a lot of issues. I wanted to change this to a new model and not wait for the part, but that request was denied.

Is there a water sprayer or arm at the top for the items on the 3rd rack & how many water levels does it have?

Asked by: Sheila
Yes there is a smaller spray arm for the 3rd rack to ensure dishes come out clean. The water level varies based on cycle choice and because of sensor technology the size of the dish load. -Whirlpool Central Advisors

Hi, is it possible to install a panel (ikea facade) in front of this dishwasher? Will we be able to open and close it if we can't acces the handle because of the panel?

Asked by: MKBC
Hi MKBC, This model would require Control Panel. Not sure if Ikea part will be suitable. Align front of dishwasher door panel with front of cabinet doors. You may need to adjust alignment to be even with your cabinets. Thank you for contacting Whirlpool Central Advisors.

Do I need to change the filter that catches the food debris? Is it easy to rind and remove the filter? or is it self cleaning?

Asked by: CNTower46
Hello CNTower46. That is a great question! Filters should be removed and cleaned every 1 - 3 months for best performance. To remove filter, pull out lower rack, grasp Filter Cup and rotate it 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Pull up to remove. Remove the Filter Plate. Rinse both under cold water in sink. A soft brush can be used to remove stuck on food. Replace filter plate. Ensure filter plate is correctly seated under tabs. To install filter cup, push down through opening. Turn clockwise to seat. Filter cup will click in to place when seated properly. Do not operate dishwasher with loose or missing filters. -Whirlpool Central Advisors team
