Whirlpool Gold® Series Dishwasher with PowerScour™ Option is rated 4.417 out of 5 by 458.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Should have kept old Whirlpool Gold Washer The good things first. Quieter than I expected. The bad things. Washer tends to smell like dirty dishes/water even after recently completed cycle. When open door after cylce, dirty water scum left wear bottom door seal is..appears as if water gets in there before cycle and just sits there..then you open and you see it at the bottom joint of door and washer. Wash Cycle takes to long. During installation, connections felt cheap..plastic connectors instead of brass, easy to cross thread. Also connections have hoses oriented straight down to floor, making difficult hookup. My old Whirlpool Gold was far better..purchased new appliances to upgrade but felt like took a step backwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It is quiet and pretty. Only thing I don't like is location of silverware rack on door, glad I kept the old one as I use it instead. And use the one in the door for large knives. Other than that I love love love it. I purchased the full set (stove, microwave hood, dishwasher and side by side, in white ice) for its looks and totally love it all. The set is so much better than the one I had when I moved in here.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed This dishwasher was not inexpensive but it does not clean my dishes. My silverware is always filthy and I have to hand wash it after the cycle. And I'm not talking about water spots. I am talking about caked on food. So disappointed! It really aggravates me that I spent so much money on a product that does not do what it says it should do. I might as well wash the dishes by hand. I was also looking for a much quieter model and it was at first. That quickly disappeared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was love at first sight.... I'd been looking for a new dishwasher for quite a while when I came across Whirlpool's Black Ice series. It had everything I wanted -- stainless steel interior, tall tub, hidden controls -- but it was the style that clinched it for me. The black/silver handle combo exactly matched my cabinetry, and now that it's installed, it looks incredibly cool (the guys who installed it said they'd never seen one like it). I appreciate all the flexibility -- adjustable racks and tines on both levels -- and the innovations like the door-mounted silverware basket. It's amazingly quiet, and my glassware comes out sparkling. Best of all -- no more complaints from the peanut gallery about a dishwasher that doesn't clean dishes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet, you won't know it's running! I love the sleek, clean lines of this Whirlpool dishwasher.The controls are easy to read and this Whirlpool holds more dishes than the KitchenAid it replaced. The first time we ran it through a cycle we had to put our ear next to the door - that is just how quite it runs. I do use a recommended rinse aid, consequently have not encountered spotting. I have used powder as well as the little cleaner packets, both with excellent results. Dishes always come out clean, but I always rinse them prior to putting the dishes into the dishwasher even though it has a scrubber cycle. Old habits are hard to die - i just can't put dishes with hardened food on them in the dishwasher to sit until it's time to run a cycle. I conducted hours of research and visited several stores to visibly inspect dishwashers which would meet our high standards of expectation - this one more than fills the bill. I highly recommend this dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Does what it is supposed to do! My dishes have never been so clean and sparkley!! My favorite cycle is the overnight one. We've really put this dishwasher to the test: dried oatmeal, yogurt, avocado, baked on ick, even the meat drippings that stick to the bottom of the pan. The ALL came completely clean. We love the silverware in the door...it gets it out of the way and makes more room for big stuff on the bottom rack. The only negative I can think of is that I have found only one specific spot on the bottom rack that will hold a cookie sheet. (and then I can only put in one at a time)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooo Quiet! This was a replacement for 15+ year-old Whirlpool that was just starting to seep at the door seal. I wanted a quiet dishwasher and this Whirlpool Gold is it! It's so quiet that I've had to go up to the machine to see if it's actually running. I love the adjustable racks, which allow for larger glasses and pans. Since there is no center water jet (in the center of the bottom rack), I can now effectively and easily wash electrostatic filters from my furnace and not risk damaging filter elements. The silverware basket does a nice job of separating utensils for better cleaning, and uses little space. The filters are easy to access and clean and the adjustable rinse agent dispenser is a great innovation, too.I highly recommend this machine to anyone who wants a quit, reliable machine at a reasonable price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is sleek and handsome. I thoroughly researched this dishwasher for looks and usefulness for my new kitchen in my new house. It's a shame it just won't get the silverware completely dry. The rep at Whirlpool suggested the use of a rinse agent and using a higher wash setting. That did help some. However, how does washing my dishes on a higher setting than I need, help with energy efficiency? Washing every load on the highest and hottest setting seems to defeat the purpose for the other settings! That seems a waste of money and makes me think the other buttons are there for looks only! I'm disappointed in Whirlpool. Wouldn't choose it again or recommend this dishwasher.
