Rated 4 out of 5 by from great looking, dries well, but difficult bottom tray We recently upgraded our kitchen with stainless steel appliances and bought this to replace an older 18 inch frigidaire dishwasher. The new one looks great and very modern. We find that it does a better job washing as well and is quieter. Our only beef is that the lower dish tray is award to fill with dishes. Also, if you load bigger plates the tray becomes top heavy and tends to come off its runners. We split the utensil basket and rearranged it which has helped with space utilization. Overall, it is a good investment, but the designers should improve the lower tray to make plates stand straight and add more stability to the tray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great load capacity and get things clean, but is noisy. Bought this for our tiny apartment. It looks no e and gets things clean. But it is not very quiet. All of our friends with Boschs say it is super loud. I wonder if something is wrong with our unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, but does it All I recently did a kitchen renovation and researched small dishwashers. I am single and a large sized dishwasher was a waste of space for me, as well as the fact that it would take me forever to fill it up. I chose the Whirlpool Compact Tall Tub. I love it! As the name implies, it's compact, yet when there are 5 of us for dinner, it more than handles the job. It's surprising just how much can be loaded into this dishwasher, and my dishes come out shiny and spotless. I frequently hear, "oh, I didn't know you could buy a small dishwasher". I bought the stainless steel finish and it blends beautifully in my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small but powerful bought this in october didn't start using until remodel in kitchen was done in november. I'm finding it is the perfect size for my household of two, but for thanksgiving I had to run several times to get all dishes done we had 11 people that day, so a lot of extra dishes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upgrade! When we moved in 4 years ago, we knew that we were going to have to replace the gold 1980's style dishwasher that we inherited. Flash-forward 4 years and we finally purchased a new dishwasher. Due to the design of our kitchen, we knew we could only get an 18 inch dishwasher. This dishwasher works great. The run cycle is about an hour and a half with settings of normal wash and heated dry. We usually set the dishwasher to run after we've gone to sleep (using the delay start function of course). This isn't the quietest dishwasher on the planet, but it certainly beats washing dishes by hand. We can still easily hear the television/music in the other room as well. You do have to yank on the latch pretty good to open the dishwasher, but it's not that big of a deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and Compact! It was the only 18 inch dishwasher I could. It's small and stylish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Right for the space. I didn't know they made dishwashers this small. I am thrilled I found it as it is a perfect fit in the kitchen. A little expensive but overall I am satisfied.
