After reviewing and searching countless dishwashers, we finally settled on this one and am I ever glad we did!!! This is absolutely the best dishwasher we have ever owned.  I very rarely find a dish with as much as a spot on it. Not only is it highly functional, but it's also very sleek and stylish in design! I absolutely love the hidden control panel on top.

I really like that the top rack is adjustable so that if we have a large crowd for dinner and tons of plates or large items, we just move the top rack down and put plates in both the top and bottom. I also really like the Adaptive Wash feature, which adapts according to the soil level which saves time and money!  I also really appreciate the 4 hour delay feature that I set right before bed so that it runs during non-peak hours and saves even more energy than this Energy-Saving model already saves!

I have mixed feelings about the door-mounted silverware holder.  While it saves an enormous amount of dish space, you can also not place long utensils on the far left as it will keep the dishwasher tab compartment from opening during wash and therefore the detergent will not release.  This small hinderence does not affect my opinion of this amazing machine!

The Instruction Manual states that it is important to ensure that you always use a rinse aid, and it indeed makes a HUGE difference with this model. 

Overall, I would absolutely purchase this again.  We have owned it for a year now and have had absolutely no issues with it.  Great purchase!

Whirlpool should be a great quality product you can trust and belive in and know you're buying the right product when you see that name on it, but this is not the case with their dishwashers.  Unfortunatly, even their higher priced dishwashers that come just short of their KithchenAid brand dishwashers in price don't seem to perform much better than their entry models.  It's a common misconception that having the silverware in the door is a good thing, but this only allows water to hit them from one side and if they're not all perfectly aligned when you put them in they won't get clean.  I've also had numerous problems with the detergent door not opening during the cycle so you think they're all done and you open the door only to find that you have to redo the cycle because the dishwashing detergent never released during the cycle.  I regret buying a high-end Whirlpool dishwasher and should have spent it on another brand that cleans better and performs better.

        Comments about Whirlpool Built-in Dishwasher:

        Whirlpool was the first name that I thought of when we moved in to our new place and needed a new dishwasher. Because of the small amount of space in our kitchen, we had to get something either small or built in so that we could maximize the space. When I found this Whirlpool Built In Dishwasher I knew that it was going to fit all of the requirements for what I needed.

        First and foremost it is a Whirlpool so it goes without saying that it is an extremley well made product. Sturdy and doesn't scratch or ding easily. We bought the stainless steel one so I was worried about it showing scratches fairly easy- but that is not the case. I bought it several months ago and there are no scratches or dings, and we have a three year old who tends to bang things into well just about everything. It has withstood her throwing toys and just about everything else at it with no scratches or harm to it.

        Another thing is that it is so quiet. I almost forget that I am washing dishes. I like being able to run a load of dishes and be able to watch a movie in the next room without having to listen to the constant swoosh swoosh of the dishwasher.

        And it does an amazing job of getting dishes clean, even the ones with hard baked on grease and grime.

        I was also surprised by how much I can cram into the dishwasher in a single load, it is for sure more than I thought I would be able to get per load.

        Overall I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new dishwasher. Especially if you have a smaller kitchen.

        This dishwasher makes ALL of my dishes dirtier than when I put them in. I had to convince my husband to let me get a dishwasher because he thinks they are all bad, and this one for sure didn't change his opinion. I've had it 3 years and have used it about 10 times because every time I use it, I have to wash the dishes again by hand. Choose another brand!

        Comments about Whirlpool Built-in Dishwasher:

        It has a plastic tube interior and a vinly rack, and it does three wash cycles but that can be increased to four cycles if need be. A nice addition to the kitchen at a good price too.

        The design is attractive and you do not need to pre-wash before loading your plates in, it washes very thoroughly. Even oil stains, egg yolk left-overs on the plate that have become dry, two-day old food sauce and stuff like that. Just load them in, and they come out clean, though not totally dry. Some of the dishes and cups might still be a bit wet. The dishwasher consumes considerably less energy, and that is another plus.

        The cycle is a bit long though, about two and a half hours, however if you are in a haste you can shorten it to one hour. But for dishes with glued left-overs, it is better to let the machine run its full cycle for best results.

        Whirlpool Built-in Dishwasher is reliable, I mean it can run twice a day for months without any hiccup. And it does not make loud noises, imagine having a great dishwasher that makes annoying noises. That would be really frustrating.

        Comments about Whirlpool Built-in Dishwasher:

        As a new homeowner, my finances are still fairly low so I bought this as a rent to own dishwasher, glad I did because this comes with a two year warranty that covers any type of damage. My family is extremely hard on all of our appliances so we make sure to buy warranties that cover accidental damages and so on and so forth. With this dishwasher however, we haven't used the warranty at all in the six months that we have had this specific dishwasher. There are upsides and downsides to any product that you buy but with this one there are way more pros than cons. For example, this dishwasher is very powerful and cleans things off of our dishes with ease and leaves zero water spots or leftover food or grime. Also, this dishwasher is self cleaning, the filter doesn't need to be cleaned or replaced it cleans itself during washing a load of dishes. One downside is that if you do not use metal clamps and bolt the dishwasher into the wall or a cupboard than it rattles against the floor making it be very loud. As it is, this dishwasher is already pretty loud when washing and rinsing so I definitely would not suggest it for an apartment complex or upper floor of a house or duplex if there is anyone living below you. I strongly suggest lowering the heat settings on this dishwasher though if you are washing any baby bottles, sippy cups, or silicone baby bottle nipples. I had several melt in this dishwasher before i learned how to turn the heat setting down. Other than just a few very minor fixable problems, this dishwasher is excellent quality and easy as pie to use. I would definitely recommend this dishwasher to anyone who likes having clean and sanitary dishes.
