Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dishwasher I purchased this dishwasher in July and have had it installed for 2 months. Before this dishwasher, we had a Kenmore Elite dishwasher that was total garbage - it didn't get dishes clean, was pretty loud, and completely died after 5 years. So far, this Whirlpool dishwasher is excellent in every way. It holds a ton of dishes. I love the adjustable 2nd rack - it's one feature our previous dishwasher had that I used pretty often and I wanted to have again. There's so much vertical interior space in this dishwasher, I find I don't need to move the 2nd rack very often because there's plenty of room to load large dinner plates, cutting boards, and cookware lids on the lower rack and still fit tall water bottles on the 2nd rack. The 3rd rack is a feature that wasn't available the last time I bought a dishwasher and I didn't think it would be that useful but now that I have it I love it. It is SO great to have the 3rd rack for knives, spatulas, tongs, and extra silverware. I usually use the Sensor Wash cycle, which takes 3 hrs 23 min. I've also used the Quick Wash a few times and found it to be pretty good as well. This dishwasher is so quiet - I mean really, really quiet. The best part is: it actually gets dishes clean. With our previous dishwasher, we had to completely rinse every bit of food off of dishes before loading it. If we didn't, the dishes would come out with food bits tattooed onto them. We can actually put dirty dishes in this dishwasher and they come out clean. With our last dishwasher we used Finish premium dishwasher tablets and Jet Dry rinse aid. This dishwasher came with a sample of Cascade Platinum dishwasher tablets and they really do seem to perform better than Finish.

I just hope it will last for long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why buy American for lack of quality? Top rack adjusters are plastic, the co only is aware they break and yet they do not replace them. Have had the adjusters break twice in 3 months and have now paid the price of the machine to fix the issue they are aware of. Can’t recommend it.

I am replacing my old dishwasher and thinking of buying this model. The max opening height under my countertop is 34 inches. The specs, here mention the max opening to be 34 and 5/8. Will this model still fit under my countertop?

Asked by: lovely
Yes, it should fit. The minimum size of the machine is 33-5/8", per the Dimensions Guide. And it says "May be reduced to 331/2" (85.1 cm) by removing the wheels and perforated area of insulation (blanket) on dishwasher" .

Just got this model - seems good so far. I would like to understand what is "sacrificed" in the Quick Wash cycle? I can't find any info on what the machine does during the cycle. Thanks!

Asked by: Pete
Hello PeteM, the quick was is used when you need faster results. It does not take any of the cycle options away it just shortens the time. Hopefully, this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Whirlpool appliances!

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
