Quiet, but poor quality

2

This machine has required many repairs that I have done myself. The first two repairs would have cost more than the machine and therefore caused the purchase of a new one. But, I am able to diagnose and repair many things, so I continue to deal with this thing. Noise Level It is a quiet machine. It has an extra layer of insulation around the outside keeping noise down. As well as a decent amount of insulation behind the toe kick. But it isn't as quiet as a Bosch. Cleaning Time The cycles are always 80 or more minutes. That seems excessive to me. Loading Flexibility It will accept lots of different shaped dishes and pots. The upper rack can be raised and lowered depending on what you need to do. The silverware holder can be easily removed and carried, but it opens up easily too. And it falls off easily while loading/unloading. Performance Performance depends on the last time I performed maintenance. This machine needs an annual tear down for cleaning and parts replacements. Otherwise, it will stop cleaning the upper rack. And, it really doesn't clean the lower rack as well either. Design The design is okay. It looks okay. It performs okay. It is easy to install and it's not too bad to take apart. But, quality is part of design, and this thing doesn't have it. See Durability. Durability The stupid machine is falling apart. The plastic liner is warped, the door for the soap is about to completely break off. It has to be torn down every year to replace parts and clean it up. The control panel has started to break because it too is made out of a weak plastic. This thing has been such a disappointment.

This is a fantastic dishwasher. Cleans so well, Everything comes out so nice and clean! Isn't noisy like my old dishwasher. I really love the looks and the great job it does cleaning. I love this dishwasher! Noise Level Makes hardly any noise at all! Cleaning Time I like that this dishwasher doesn't take a hour to go through the cleaning cycle like my last dishwasher. Different settings for light to heavy loads. Cleans quickly, and everything sparkles. Loading Flexibility Easy to load...So much space for all my glassware on the top shelf. I love how I can adjust the shelf so easily to fit my longer glasses on top or my bigger pans and plats on the bottom. Washes all my crystal so clean and no breaking! Bottom shelf is big enough for my largest casserole dishes and pots and pans! Love the storage for the silverware! Performance This dishwasher performs fantastically. I am so happy with that I made this purchase! It works so well, hardly any noise at all. It cleans all the dishes on top and bottom. I don't have to rinse the dishes thoroughly before loading it, which is very time saving. Love the different features. Design This dishwasher looks so pretty in my kitchen! I Love the sleek design. The surface is easily cleaned. No ugly fingerprints! It matches up with my other new whirlpool appliances. Durability So far so good...works perfectly! I picked this brand because of it's lasting durability. It is replacing another Whirlpool dishwasher, that was still working, I just redesigned my kitchen with all stainless steel appliances.

Cleaning With No Mercy

Overall, this dishwasher is a marvelous addition to our home. While it isn't a perfect ten, it is really close. This dishwasher is just a well-rounded one that deserves the recognition it gets. Noise Level While this dishwasher works well, it is a tiny bit louder than I would like for it to be. It sort of does this shaky, vibrating noise. While you can barely hear it, it's quite evident on those nights when everything is quite and you try to read a book. Cleaning Time The speed of this machine is by far one of its greatest assets. Usually a moderately packed load takes roughly 45 minutes to an hour. I just love being able to finish all my dish washing in a few hours. Loading Flexibility You can put pretty much anything in this dishwasher to wash. It's quite roomy so it allows for those large items to easily fit inside of it. Performance It works fast, looks nice, and gets the job done. A very well rounded machine. Design The design is great, but I wish there would be a bit more modernization in it. It's simple, but at the same time I wish it would have a slicker design to it. Durability I have had this machine for about 2-3 years and it wirks great. After my old dishwasher broke, I was forced to buy a cheaper dishwasher. This one right here was a great price and has worked like it's brand new.

Whirlpool Built-in Dishwasher

Buying this Whirlpool Built-in Dishwasher was a good decision. I was looking for something economical and get the job done of cleaning dishes well. it only took a few minutes to install. All the water lines and power cord were of sufficient length. No adaptations were needed while hooking everything up. The control panel is easy to read and easy to use. The exterior of the dishwasher is easy to keep clean. A simple wipe down with a damp cloth is all that is needed. I found the exterior to be very durable and resisted scratches, dents and dings. The racks inside are easy to pull out to fill with dirty dishes and slide back in. I found the water spray to be efficient in removing the food off the dishes. Everything always comes out clean. There is a slight noise while the dishwasher is running and filling with water, but it isn't unbearable or overly distracting. I found this dishwasher to be energy efficient also. I did not notice an increase in my electrical bill.

We had this Whirlpool Built-in Dishwasher DU1055XTVQ / DU1055XTVB / DU1055XTVS installed in our last apartment which I was quite happy to find out and Whirlpool is a good name when it comes to kitchen appliances and washing machines. I used it for about two years before we moved out. It is smaller when I compare it to the recent one I am using but it kind of sufficient for a small family. You can decide to run the washer every alternate day or so depending on the dishes. I used to run it every alternate day or after we had guests over. The utensils came out clean except for some broken glasses at times, probably because I was not so good at loading the dishwasher at that time. It required regular cleaning from inside, I used to do it weekly to take the scum off the walls. I will recommend this dishwasher to anyone with small family and small space. This is a reliable machine that will last for a long time.

Not consistent

We had this exact same dishwasher in our last home and it was excellent, so upon moving into a new home we bought another. This one is nowhere near as good as the last one. It does not clean as well nor dry as well. The water used for both is soft so I'm not sure why there is such a difference. We are also using the same type of detergent. Noise Level This is not the most quiet dishwasher I have ever heard, but also not the noisiest. It seems about average to me. I usually set the timer so it runs overnight and I won't hear it. Cleaning Time The cycle times seem about average. It was noted in the manual that the first wash or two it would run for a really long time and after thst it would not be so long, and this was exactly true. Performance This dishwasher is not as good as the exact same make and model that I had at my last house. The previous one would get every thing clean the first time, including tea and coffee stains with no pre-rinsing. This one leaves food on utensils and cookware if not pre-rinsed, and it does not get tea or coffee stains out of cups or mugs. Also, even if the rinse agent dispenser is full and the "heated dry" cycle is chosen, many items are still wet after the load is done. Durability We have had this dishwasher for almost 5 years and have had no need for repairs.

Pretty basic and cheap

When my husband and I bought our house 5 years ago, this Whirlpool dishwasher was part of the appliances that were in the kitchen when we moved in. All our appliances are white Whirlpool ones and looked fairly nice at first. We soon discovered that they are basically the low-end, cheap models. It was really nice to not have to purchase new appliances, but this dishwasher is not great. First of all, it does have good qualities like the variety of settings and the ease of use. A few months ago, however, I noticed that it started running much louder than it ever has. It has always been fairly loud, but it didn't bother me until recently. Lately it is so loud that it has woken my son up from naps. There doesn't appear to be anything broken or wrong with it, just that it runs much louder now. It has never done a great job cleaning, but I don't know of any dishwashers that do. Sometimes I have to wash half of the dishes again to get them clean. The most aggravating thing about this dishwasher, though, is that I cannot get it clean no matter what I do. The outside looks fairly nice except for staining at the vent area, but the inside looks filthy. I have used several different cleaning products to try to get my dishwasher clean, but nothing seems to work. We do not have hard water and I live in a suburb of a large city where we have clean water. When I purchase a new dishwasher, I will definitely research which ones stay clean because I had no idea this would be such a big factor. All in all, it's been an okay dishwasher. I will continue to use it until I can afford to buy a new one.

Whirlpool is Reliable

Whirlpool's products are always very reliable and Whirlpool is a name you can trust. Whirlpool's Built-In Dishwasher is no different. We owned a Whirlpool dishwasher and it lasted for years without any problems. The only reason we finally got a new one was because we wanted a nicer and newer looking one. While this model is built for durability, the appearance could be nicer. It is just a basic dishwasher in appearance. There aren't any fancy bells and whistles, but it does get the job done. You can use liquid dish soap, powder, or even those little pods and your dishes come out spotless every time. The dishwasher isn't particularly noisy and the cycle length is about average. It does a great job of cleaning and it isn't too abrasive on your more delicate kitchenware. It's a great value for the price. Dishwashers are not cheap, but this one does last, so at least you do get your money's worth.

The utensil rack is poorly designed. Great otherwise.

We bought this Whirlpool Quiet Partner II because it was one of the least expensive dishwashers with a stainless steel front and it was manufactured by a reliable name brand. We have owned it for 5 years now and are very please. It its fairly quiet. The cycles are long though, a little over an hour for a normal wash. All of our glasses and dishes come out clean. I like that you can opt to have the dry cycle turned off to save energy, and let your dishes air-dry. I do not like the design of the silverware rack. It can attach either to the door of the dishwasher or the front of the bottom basket. Either way, it ends up flat up against the door. I like the idea of a long narrow basket because it saves space for more dishes, but it simply does not hold many pieces at all in addition to keeping them close together and difficult to be cleaned. We have to vigorously pre-scrub all the utensils before putting them in the dishwasher. The stainless steel front is very easy to keep clean with a simple orange oil spray and soft cloth. All the racks and other components seem very durable and sturdy.
