Whirlpool® Dishwasher with Resource-Efficient Wash System is rated 4.4383 out of 5 by 527.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from What's the point if I have to wash the dishes by hand first? Nothing gets cleaned! The upper rack is too short for stemmed wine glasses and it doesn't drop as per the manual instructions. The thing is constantly grimy and the filter is impossible to clean. The openings in the utensil carrier don't fit all size utensils and it's woefully too small for knives and serving ware. This machine cannot hold up to a family dinner, let along a holiday party. We're vegans, so we don't have a lot of baked on meats and fats, but we still have to use the heavy duty setting just to get the dishes cleaned. Cancel takes forever if you mess up on the programming. It's the worst purchase I've made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great desiogn and quality. After spending 40 years trying most brands, we have settled on the Whirlpool brand to replace our previous Maytag, Kitchenaid, Kenmore, GE, Amana and several others reputed to be "the best". Whirlpool seems to be the quietest, easiest to use, and most importantly, trouble free. Being an architect, I am also very pleased with the beauty and design. Three years ago we replaced our washing machine with a whirlpool, and have been so pleased with it that within the last year we have replaced our gas dryer, dishwasher and range. Now we are waiting for our refrigerator to fail and that will complete our appliance purchases for a long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I am disappointed. Pros - It is a quiet machine. Cons - This dishwasher runs for 2 1/2 to 3 hours for a load of dishes. I cannot see how energy efficient that would be. It also does not clean the silverware very well. I must redo at least half of all the silverware that I place in the basket. It does not do a good cleaning job on things placed at the wall sides of the brackets as opposed to things in the center. This was an expensive machine. This machine leaves a lot to be desired, in my opinion. My 18 year old machine was cleaning circles around this machine even when the motor was whining. So disappointed when my old machine completely wore out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peacfully Quiet, SUPER performance Love the cleanable filter at the bottom rather than hard food disposer. Less parts to break down! Great features for our families needs. Unit is very quiet. I could barely hear trickling water. It was actually peaceful! We have a very large family with 6 children and can comfortably fit dishes with it's large capacity. Dishes all came out super hot and amazingly clean. Silverware holder is difficult for the kids to get use to when loading\unloading. Many times we just flip up the holder and it works great. Thanks Whirlpool for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet and cleans well I didn't like this dishwasher when I first used it as all of my dishes were wet and I had to hand dry them before putting them up, I pulled the information and it stated that you have to have rinse aid in the dishwasher for it to dry the dishes. I put in the rinse aid and loved that it had a gauge to state when it was full. The next time I washed my dishes they were dry! Now I love this dishwasher and it is very very quiet. I thought it was important to mention the rinse aid in case people have complained and didn't go back and state why they had the issue

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great washer needs some design tweaks Fantastic cleaning on pots, baked-on food, etc. I like the several options for washing cycles & choosing delay. However: Silverware feature has a clumsy handle which interferes with loading & removal of two central sections; all dividers have gaps large enough to trap silverware, again making removal difficult, yet dividers are not tall enough to keep all silverware upright. None of the prongs on either shelf are moveable (upright or lay-down) to allow for better loading of larger or odd-shape items. Door hinge/spring too tight, causing door to pull upward and thrust lower shelf (even when somewhat loaded) back into the washer. Soap dispenser cover does not click shut easily, often requiring two hands (one to hold the door flat and the other to manually latch the dispenser cover). Other than cleaning quality (which is excellent) this is not an easy dishwasher to love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans well. Quiet. Silverware holder inadequate. Our "good" rating assumes you have checked that your silverware will fit in the holder (see comments below). The dishwasher seems solid and well constructed. Even with the energy saving features it cleans very well. The cycle time is somewhat longer than our previous washer, but this is not a problem for us. The unit is extremely quiet, which is nice. The dry feature works well, but we found we could skip it and let the dishes air dry with the door opened a small amount. An issue we are still coping with is the generic, equally spaced tines in the racks. There is little flexibility in the way to arrange dishes. The upper rack has room for one row of bowls in the center with glasses and mugs on the sides. The bottom rack can only hold one row of dinner dishes in the central area. There is no good place for large casserole dishes and pans. If you place them at the back, the dinner dishes are pushed forward making it impossible to load anything other than very small dishes in front of them. Some of the higher priced models have more flexible rack setups that would probably resolve this. The big disappointment is the silverware holder, which is nearly useless for us, as the slots are too narrow in two of the three rows to hold our very average sized silverware. If we hadn't saved the holder from our previous dishwasher (and been fortunate enough that it fit in the rack of this one), this purchase would have been a disaster. Be sure you check for this problem before purchasing this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dishwasher is quiet and energy efficient all in a beautiful package We have lived totally off the power grid on a solar system for 18 years. Solar efficient appliances (the wave of the future) are very hard to find. That is why we are so pleased with our new Whirlpool dishwasher. It does a terrific job cleaning dishes, silver, and pots and pans and it's design allows you to load a huge variety of items for cleaning. It is extremely energy and water efficient and also amazingly quiet. I have had guests comment that they can't even hear it running. It is easy to operate and has a great range of cycles to choose from as well as a large capacity for family dinners. This dishwasher is definitely for the 21st century.
