Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Quiet We've had this dishwasher a few months now. It cleans very well, is really quiet, and has great wash options. Love the overnight wash option. The adjustable upper rack is nice, but be wary, you can lower the rack to accept tall wine glasses but then you cannot put full sized plates in the lower rack. The silverware rack is a pain, really needs to be redesigned. by placing on the door you gain a lot of rack space but its difficult to load with the door open and god help you if the front panel opens up and dumps all your silverware into the bottom of the washer. It does have a great filtration system that is very easy to pull out and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My sparkling, shinning dishes with my Whirlpool Gold dishwasher I bought this Whirlpool Gold dishwasher, after researching on line for a few weeks and reading all the reviews ( they do help) and I finally decided on my Whirlpool dishwasher. Our water is very hard and my other dishwasher would not make my dishes and glasses sparkle, no matter what I added to the dish detergent, now I add to my Whirlpool Gold, Cascade Complete, Cascade Rinse and Lemon Shine Original and Wow, my dishes and including my glassware, shine, sparkle and shine and sparkle again, when I have sparkling and shinning dishes and glassware, my kitchen just sparkle, sparkle and it makes me sparkle too. I do not have any embarrassing moments any more. Ora R

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved the Look I bought this dishwasher in March. I loved the look and the features. Within two months the motor seized up and the dishwasher wouldn't wash anything. Luckily Whirlpool did the right thing and replaced the unit with a brand new one and didn't try to replace the motor instead. My rating will likely be up to at least 4 stars as long as I don't continue to have motor issues. Other than that I love the sleek look with the buttons on the top. stainless tub is a big bonus, adjustable upper rack is a nice feature as well as the utensil caddy being movable. Lots of wash options available which I really like also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet as a mouse! I bought this along with a refrigerator, range and microwave a month ago. It replaces an 8 year-old GE dishwasher that came with my new house at the time. Best feature is how quiet it is. I forget that it is running even while in the next room. I am following manufacturer's directions and using suggested rinse aid and detergent. Full loads of dishes and utensils are sparkling and completely dry. Very happy I made this choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOOOO quiet!!! I bought this dishwasher a month ago, and I can't get over how QUIET it is! We used to have to turn our TV up when I ran the old dishwasher, but this one you can't hear unless you're right next to it, and even then it's barely audible. I'm also happy that it is energy efficient. It cleans my dishes extremely well. I am very happy that I chose this dishwasher to replace our old, loud, inefficient model. This model looks very sleek in our kitchen. I also like the stainless steel interior. Not only does it look cool, but it won't stain like plastic interiors will. Very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Quiet! I really like how quiet this dishwasher is. It looks great too! The thing I don't like is the the silverware caddy. My silverware does not get clean when the caddy is on the door. The silverware does not fit the holes and I put my silverware end up so I'm not touching it as I take it out clean. I am now using the caddy on the lower level and most of the silverware comes clean. Most cooking utensils have to go on the top rack because of lack of room. Most of the time I use the 1 hour wash and heated dry features. Dishes are clean and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best appliance purchase ever We recently replaced the noisiest dishwasher ever with the quietest dishwasher ever. I wish we would have done it sooner. Our new whirlpool dishwasher was very reasonably priced - our dishes are cleaner than before, and there is so much more room its ridiculous. But the sound of this unit running, or should I say lack of sound, is great. It's extremely quiet, as in, I have occasionally gone back into the kitchen after starting it to make sure it's actually running. We just love it and can't recommend it highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Washer!!!! I bought this dishwasher about 2 months ago. I could not be happier! My old dishwasher was just not getting my dishes clean. This dishwasher works better than I would ever have imagined. I did not know dishes could get so clean! We have a high end high power blender that we use every day. The pitcher on the blender gets little tiny scratches all over the inside. And inside the little tiny scratches all the pulverized particles get stuck. Unable to clean with even a brush. The pitcher was turning a kind of brown color. Well after a few washes in this machine it looks good as new. We use the little cube detergent and I highly recommend the liquid additive. My dishes look like someone polished them. It's Crazy!!! Highly recommend to anybody looking for a new dishwasher. Super quiet too.
