In-Door Silverware Basket Frees up rack space by easily fitting on the front of the lower rack or in the door to make room for more dishes.

Normal Cycle Use for normal amounts of food soil to clean up leftover messes from your day-to-day meals.

Heavy Cycle Take care of heavily-soiled messes and other hard-to-clean dishes without the extra elbow grease by adding extra time to the cycle.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Being using the dishwasher for about 3 weeks now & love how quiet it is.

Energy Star yes 1 hour not quite

2ndFavUncle 8/29/2017

Well we replaced a 25 year old Maytag with this unit and in all fairness to the energy star rating it is quiet, it does clean the dishes but the normal cycle is 3 hours long! Using the sanitize and heat dry brings that down to 2hours and 50 minutes. That really isn't my biggest knock on this thing. NOTHING fits in the racks. Our bowls and glasses don't fit in the top rack the way pictures show you. Our everyday plastic mugs are too wide to fit in the proper space making it impossible to put two rows of glasses or our side bowls and glasses in the top rack. The bottom rack is fine for flat dishes but pots and pans, they take up more space and so as energy efficient as you want to be there is no way you're getting all of your dirty dishes into one load. That's 6 hours of clean up time. I'm sorry but it just isn't as versatile as the old one from 25 years ago.

Not Great

Bailey 7/27/2017

I like the look of the stainless steel, but have been unhappy with this dishwasher. It seems to wash my dishes okay, but takes an extremely long time >3.5 hours. Additionally, it develops a strong sewer smell after each cycle. I have had it serviced twice, and no resolution. They replaced check valve and drain hose due to improper installation. However, it was installed per the manual, yet the service technician mentioned how the manual was incorrect. Finally, after no resolution and still smelly, I was told this was normal for all dishwashers and to just leave door open (making my entire kitchen smell). I' am disappointed that the problem has not been resolved.

Extremely Quiet

Virginia Resident 7/10/2017

Good & Bad-- Good: I recently purchased this dishwasher to replace a Maytag that lasted 14 years! This dishwasher is SO quiet compared to my old Maytag, sometimes I go over to make sure it is still on. Dishes seemed to be washed well. Bad: My bowls don't fit well anywhere in dishwasher. The controls on the top are a bit awkward under my countertop. My husband had to cut out some of molding around countertop (& had to take out cutting board) so I could see controls on top. I wonder what kind of kitchen countertop this would really work in best. Also, the stainless steel shows every little drip, and finger print, it is HARD to keep clean. Wished I spent a little more to get the black stainless steel. I wish Whirlpool offered the black stainless steel panel replacement for this dishwasher. After the trouble my hubby had getting this dishwasher installed (water line is difficult due to placement UNDER the unit and behind other pieces of dishwasher) he would not be happy uninstalling to get me another dishwasher! So I'll be cleaning the front panel a lot.

Bow to Whirlpool 7/9/2017

I bought this a few months ago. Between the stainless inside and the crazy cleaning capabilities, this thing is awesome. It is ridiculously quite, I can't even tell it's running with out the little green light on the front. I can literally stand in front of it and can't hear a peep from it. My parents bought the same model with the plastic tub and they love it too.

So good we bought it twice

M & A 7/4/2017

We purchased this unit to replace the one that came in our new build a few years ago and loved it for it's features. Having really desired a metal tub to replace the plastic one (for sanitary and efficiency reasons), we were blown away at the price point, features, configurability (love the removable silverware basket that fits on pegs on the lower dish tray or inside the dish tray). The near silent operation, stainless tub, cycle options and memory, dispenser configuration, and all around value made this a perfect choice. We then sold the house and the dish washer conveyed. We weren't really happy with the one we were inheriting from the previous owners of the house we had purchased as our next home so we went back online, found the same unit and purchased for the new home because the first one had done so well for us. Great build, easy to use, very very clean dishes!

Great dishwasher...

Jenn 7/4/2017

Im really happy i decided to buy this this washer. It fits many dishes of all sizes. The power and the dish cleaning power is amazing. It really cleans tough dirty dishes with ease. The only drawback would be the utensil basket. It needs more wider holes for the bigger size utensil. I have wide forks and i have to struggle fitting them in. Other than that, this washer is amazing!! I would recommend. Love this washer. Use it everyday for 3 months now. One last thing, is Super quiet! Love it.

Quietest dishwasher I've ever used

Russ 6/21/2017

Bought this dishwasher a little over a month ago and it works well. Never used a quieter dishwasher. The one hour cycle works well, nice style. Only thing I would improve is the layout of three bottom rack as they are straight and don't hold muy dinner plates upright. Other dishwashers I've had were angled slightly which prevented the plates from falling forward.

I have only had this dishwasher a year and a half and now it won't clean the dishes. The arms sometimes work and most of the time doesn't. After researching on the internet, it will cost $200 or more to repair. I didn't get extended warranty because I never needed it for Whirlpool.
