From baked-on casserole dishes to drinking glasses, the Sensor cycle has you covered. It automatically selects the right wash and dry settings for your load by using two separate sensors to measure temperature, soil level and load size once during the prewash and once during the wash cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlpool Gold Series Dishwasher with Sensor Cycle i purchased this appliance a couple of months ago. It was installed within 30 minutes with the greatest of ease! This dishwasher holds a lot of dishes, cutting boards, pots, pans, etc....I love that the flatware is loaded inside the pull out door. The sound is so quiet I can sit in my family room and watch a movie that is just off my kitchen and I never know it is running. I actually have opened the door to see that it started due to the quietness. It has many wash cycles: Sensor, Heavy, Normal, Eco, 1 hour & overnight. The options are also great: Top rack wash, Hi temp wash, Sani Rinse, Heat dry (with options for Eco or High) and, a 4 hour delay. I love the option for "top rack" for sanitizing my canning jars as well as, stemware. This is a great feature and uses less water. After loading from a large family gathering of 10 guests, you don't even need to rinse off the dishes and they come out amazingly clean. I often clean out my fridge from leftovers and place all the plastic containers in the top rack and use that cycle for this too! At the end of the cycle, there are two indicators telling you that the load is clean/and/or sanitized if you choose that option. I also love that the buttons are inside the door on the top. It has a streamlined look and very easy to keep clean on the outside of the door. I have the stainless brushed door. This is a very good appliance. Economical with many cycles and options. I couldn't be happier!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, does it do the job! I just retired 2 months ago and have a number of coffee cups that I used at work over many, many years. White cups can build up quite a stain from good strong work coffee. I washed these cups a number of times in our just replaced dishwasher and the stain always remained. The first run of the new dishwasher using the normal cycle included 2 of the coffee cups ..... and I was amazed that the stain was gone. Same cascade detergent we have used for a long time so it was the work of the new dishwasher. Way to go Whirlpool! Dick Stem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, affordable, Whirlpool dishwasher that cleans the first time! I have had this dishwasher a little over 3 months and let me tell you how amazed i am with the quality, style and performance. All my dishes seem to sparkle as if they were all brand new, no matter what detergent i use, i get the same, perfect results. I have been through a few "other" brand dishwashers that left my dishes, cloudy, dirty, didnt clean the finger or mouth prints off the glasses. I was glad to come across this well built Whirlpool dishwasher, it was really affordable to. This dishwasher saved me time and energy, no more hand pre washing the dishes. I promise you, you will not be dissapointed with this Whirlpool dishwasher!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial Review is good. We went through 2 fridgidaire dishwashers from Lowes. Both were returned under either original warranty or extended warranty. I got fed up with that so I went with Whirlpool seeing pretty good reviews posted on Lowes. So far so good. We have had this model in for 2 months now. Pretty quiet operation. The only bad thing is there is no indicator that the washer is done with the cycle, so you kind of have to really listen as this model is super quite. Installation was not too bad. It was a tight fit though. So make sure you take this into account when you purchase the washer. If I start running into issues, I will update this review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The non dishwashing dishwasher purchased this dishwasher last year;it has yet to run properly. contacted customer service; got pro forma answers out of the user guide which were non-responsive and completely useless. I wash more dishes by hand now because this dishwasher is so frustrating to use AND I will have to re-wash at least one dish and several utensils. The only way dishes get anywhere near clean is by running half a load with soap in both dispensers. Can you say "inefficient"? This dishwasher cost more than twice as much (on "sale") as the 12 year old Kenmore it replaced. Other than being somewhat noisy, the Kenmore was superior in every way to the Whirlpool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointing We replaced a 12 year old dishwasher with this one in White Ice. The White Ice looks great but it works almost as well as my 12 year old dishwasher did. So disappointing! I have to pre-wash the dishes and they don't sparkle as some of the other reviews boasted. If I don't use heat dry then the dishes don't dry at all; but, I have now lost 6 water bottles because of the heat. I guess I'm going to have to hand wash those, too! The silverware basket is tiny.. Ugh! I felt confident buying this because of all the great reviews. I am stuck with this thing and the worse thing is, we bought the microwave too! We haven't put it in yet but I can only imagine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gold Series Top Control Dishwasher 6-cycles I bought this dishwasher to replace my Bosch dishwasher. It not only looks good, it is similarly quiet in operation, has a large capacity, and gets my dishes clean every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique design and quiet operation makes Whirlpool dishwashers topnotch. Attaching the removable basket for eating utensils to the inside of the door is a brilliant design to increase space elsewhere in the dishwasher. The versatility of adjustable top racks allows more opportunity for an array of dish shapes. Placing the control buttons on top of the door, hidden from view until the door is opened, keeps little toddler hands from playing with the controls. The appliance operates so quietly that I sometimes have to double check to make sure I really started it. Kudos to the product designer!
