Some flaws, but I'd buy it :)

3

Why is dishwasher safe listed as a "pro" for a dishwasher? o_O ... Ok, anyway - had this for about 2yrs now. Got it as a gift, but I'd buy it. Would rate it up to a 3.5 ... It works pretty well and gives me needed extra counter space whether it's in use or not, and has never leaked. It doesn't dry dishes very well, &doesn't always get tough spots clean though :/ and the wheels could use a lock. Aside from that it's great. I like that it's big, can fit pots &pans. If I need to use the sink while it's hooked up, I can just push the button or pause the cycle. I like that :) I also push the cancel/drain button at the end of each cycle to drain the extra water out.

This dishwasher is a great dishwasher with it's only flaws that I have found being design flaws. I have only had this dishwasher for about two weeks, but in that time I have learned to love it. With previous dishwashers I have had numerous problems, including but not limited to, leakage, doors coming open when ever it is running, and power failure. With this dishwasher I am nothing short of pleased. I have had no problems with this dishwasher's capacity, ability to wash and sanitize thouroughly, and how powerful this dishwasher is. It powers through the toughest of food caked on to the dishes. I only have one dislike about it and that is the fact that if you move the dishwasher a lot, or if you have a todller like I do who likes to push on it a lot, the wheels become jammed or even fall off.I eventually just took them off and decided I didn't need them and now I don't have any problems at all with the dishwasher. Noise Level Unfortunately it is louder than I expected but not too loud.

This is the most fantastic thing for houses with no space for a built in dishwasher. But these portable dishwashers are very large though and can take up a lot of floor space. The dishwasher rolls around so you can roll it over to the sink and hook the hose to your kitchen faucet. You turn on the water and then turn on the dishwasher and it begins the cycle. This can be a challenge if you need to use the kitchen faucet while the dishwasher is running. I will admit it can be a pain to deal with all of that but a welcome relief for someone in need of a dishwasher. It is easy to roll around, I did it while 9 months pregnant. The butcher block top also gives you some extra counter top space if you need it. Overall, this dishwasher was a welcome relief to me after having no dishwasher at all for several years. It is totally worth all of the hassle of moving it around and hooking it to the faucet. It gets the dishes clean and that is all I wanted. Noise Level Just like any other dishwasher, it does make noise.

Awesome portable dishwasher

This is a great portable dishwasher. We currently rent a house and didn't want to pay the money to install a built in dishwasher. The Whirlpool DP1040XTXB works well for us. We can roll it over to the corner of the kitchen when it's out of use and easily roll it to the sink when we are ready to use it. Our dishes get clean no matter what setting we use. Even our pots and pans get clean. Noise Level This dishwasher is quiet. I can run it during naptime and not worry about it waking up my little one. Cleaning Time Depending on which setting you choose, cleaning time can take a while (with the pots and pans settings taking the longest) but for dishes that are not heavily soiled, there are quicker cleaning times. Loading Flexibility Besides cookie sheets, we have no problems loading the dishwasher. There's plenty of room for all of our dishes. Performance It's cleans our dishes, including pots and pans perfectly. Design I wish it was a little more space between the top drawer and the bottom but it works. I love that the silverware holder is on the door. Durability This dishwasher takes a beating from our family and it's still working with no issues.

Better than washing by hand!!

This dishwasher is perfect for apartment dwellers who don't already have a built in dishwasher. The wood top provides extra counter space, which is unfortunately lacking in MANY apartments. It does a great job of cleaning dishes.....on the same level as a built in. I've really only found a few "negatives" about it. 1) It is a little loud, but I suppose that happens with any portable 2) The hose attachment didnt fit my sink properly until after I removed the screw on part (that little thing with the screen), which I now have sitting in one of the kitchen drawers, and HOPEFULLY won't lose, since I'll have to put it back on if and when I move. Other than that, if you hate doing the dishes by hand (which I certainly do), it's a great addition to the home Noise Level A little loud in a small apartment Cleaning Time As long as you remember to clean it every six months or so with one of those dishwasher cleaners, you're good to go Loading Flexibility The top rack is set up a little weirdly...the area for putting bowls doesn't really work well. the bowls kept falling over! But I fixed this by always making sure I had a small sauce pan to start with, and now the bowls all lean nicely

easy to use portable dishwasher

4

a good portable dishwasher that handles all types of cleanups with ease and is easy to use Noise Level operates quietly during all phases of the cleaning cycle Cleaning Time works very efficiently and quickly even during the heavy cleaning cycles Loading Flexibility loads avariety of sizes of dishes and cookware on both racks Performance operates very well on all types of cleanups (ie: dried on food ) Design wheels move dishwasher effortlessly, with long electrical cord and hose assembly. Does require a faucet adaptor which sometimes leaks if not hooked up correctly. countertop of unit doubles as a cutting board, and can even be used as extra counter space Durability have done at least one load a day for over a year with no problems

LOVE My Whirlpool 24" Portable Dishwaher!!!!

My Whirlpool portable dishwasher is sooooo easy to use. we had a built in dishwasher and then when it went out after years and year, we put a new sink in also. this new sink hung lower than the old and a new built in dishwasher wouldn't fit without having to do a lot of cutting and re-modeling around the area. so we went and got a portble dishwasher. Didn't think i'd like one at first but i LOVE IT!!! Was easy to hook-up. just had to put a new piece on the faucet and it was ready to use. I wanted to "test" how clean it got dishes. i usually rinse most of mine anyways before putting in but i left a pan with a little bit stuck on it and a couple plates. was surprised at how well it cleaned ALL of the stuff i put in. the pan still had a tiny bit stuck to it but the plates came clean. It's easy to operate and move around. Like how it hold the silverware rack on the door. It is pretty quiet when doing dishes. not as quiet as a buit-in but i am very happy with it and would reccomend it.

Whirlpool portable dishwasher

This dishwasher is a bute!!  I am seventy years old and for Christmas my girls bought this for me. I had always told them I didn't need a dishwasher because I had three girls but now they are all gone.This was quite a surprise to me. Well, I just can't say enough good things about it.After doing dishes fo fifty years it is quite different to just load them in the dishwasher , set the dials and forget it. Now my kitchen is never cluttered with dishes. When I open the door to take out the dishes I just hold the glasses up to the light and well it is just wonderful.It doesn't seem to take very long to do a load and you can really get a lot of dishes in it. It is not too noisy and really cleans everythng from pots and pans to crystal.The diswasher is on wheels and very easy to move. I thought it would be a real chore but it just takes minutes to get it hooked up.I can't compare it to other brands because it is my first one however if it ever breaks down I will deinitely get another Whirlpool.

I purchased this model from a  local appliance store.  Whirlpool has done it right!  Being a full time student I needed something convient and reliable to wash my dishes.  This Whirlpool portable dishwasher is above and beyond my expectations.  Easy to load, Various cycles (especially for those really dirty dishes) and clean up's are now faster!  Also, it is energy conservant and hook up is a breeze!

Whirlpool portable dishwasher - a hand saver

I remodeled our basement to have my elderly eighty six year old mother move in with me.  Unfortunately the kitchen area was too small for us to have the contractor install a dishwasher as she needed cabinet space for her things so my poor mother was stuck doing dishes every night. Her delicate skin was suffering and I went looking for a solution to the problem and the Whirlpool 24" portable dishwasher was the answer!!  I purchased it and placed it in a corner by the table - now whenever she has dishes to do she loads it easily and at night we pull it over to her kitchen sink and connect it and it works beautifully.  Her dishes come out clean, her hands are once again soft and she does not have to stand at the sink doing dishes and having her back hurt. This is the ideal dishwasher for those that do not have a lot of space. Do not hesitate to buy it -- it is easy to operate and quiet and does a beautiful job on dishes.
