Image Feature

High Temp Wash

Choose this option when additional cleaning of items like baby bottles glassware or dishes is required.

Image Feature

Heavy Cycle

Adds more time to the cycle to clean heavily soiled items.

Sensor Cycle 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. It cleans tough soils 35% better 2 while using just the right amount of time, energy and water, helping you have more time to do what you love.

Fully Integrated Electronic Controls Add a modern accent to your kitchen. The control panel is hidden away to provide a sleek exterior while preventing unwanted cycle changes or accidental operation.

AnyWare Plus Silverware Basket The AnyWare Plus 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.

Resource - Efficient Wash System This dishwasher's resource-efficient wash system cleans a full load of dishes using nearly 1/2 the water and energy 3 . Whirlpool Brand's improved motor and wash system optimizes cleaning for better cleaning results versus the previous wash system and provides our quietest line of dishwashers ever.

Adjustable Upper Rack The adjustable upper rack smoothly adjusts two inches up or down to fit larger items in either rack.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified Whirlpool® dishwashers exceed government efficiency standards, so they are better for the environment and your wallet.

CEE Tier 1 4 qualified Select dishwashers exceed federal minimum energy efficiency standard by 15% to earn an eco-friendly CEE Tier 1 4 qualification. These advanced water and energy savings may qualify for rebates, contact your local utility company for program availability.

Overnight Cycle The Overnight cycle quietly soaks your dishes with an extended prewash and then runs a Heavy Wash cycle to clean tough soils. This industry-exclusive, 7-hour cycle optimizes water efficiency, without using more energy or disrupting household activities.

Top Rack Wash Option With this specialized option, you don't have to wait for a full load to wash a few items. The Top Rack Wash option saves you time and energy by washing dishes in the top rack. Now breakfast bowls and coffee cups don't need to sit in the sink until after lunch or dinner.

Eco Wash Cycle Our most efficient dishwasher cycle helps minimize energy and water usage while cleaning dishes 5 . This eco-friendly cycle delivers great cleaning performance and is the perfect cycle for cleaning lightly to moderately soiled dishes.

Eco Dry Option The industry-exclusive Eco Dry option is the most efficient drying option on our dishwashers. Perfect for those who want to save energy, its shorter heating time uses 70% less energy compared to using Heated Dry 6 .

Plastic Cup Shelf Allows you to stack two levels of coffee mugs or secure delicate glassware during the wash cycle when used as a stemware holder.

Light Item Clips Light item clips secure lightweight items during the wash cycle and help prevent items from falling out of the basket. They also stop cups and other small containers from flipping over and filling with water.

Tall Tub Design This model's Tall Tub design allows you to load tall and odd-shaped items in both racks. An additional 3" of interior space compared to standard tub models makes room for extra-large items in the lower rack and plates or sports bottles in the upper rack.

Triple Filtration System Resource efficient dishwashers feature a triple filtration system to remove food particles and other soils. This highly effective filtration system helps the wash system provide outstanding cleaning while using less water and energy.

Auto Soil Sensor The Auto soil sensor optimizes every cycle for reliable cleaning results. This sensor measures water clarity to determine how dirty dishes are, then adjusts the cycle accordingly. This sensor measures the soils in the water and will add extra water and even temperature to ensure clean dishes. It automatically recalibrates the load after every 250 wash cycles for maximum performance.

NSF Certified Sani Rinse Option Make sure your dishes are reliably clean with the NSF Certified Sani Rinse option. Using a high temperature rinse, this option eliminates 99.999% of food soil bacteria, as certified by NSF International.

1-Hour Wash Cycle Clean dishes in half the time 7 so your plates, pans and glasses are thoroughly cleaned up and taken care of in just an hour.

Normal Cycle Use for loads with normal amounts of food soil.

Premium Rail System The premium rail system features wheels on each side of the rack for improved gliding. Wheels fit tight into rails for a smooth feel that slides easily and quietly.

Quiet Partner IV Sound Package Whirlpool brand dishwashers offer many levels of quiet operation with this system of sound-reducing insulation.

Improved design fits more spaces You can now easily install this dishwasher thanks to its universal cutout. It's adjustable, so it fits perfectly to your kitchen's needs, without sacrificing overall tub height or capacity.

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.

The older one in our other house was much better made than t

Deem 3/7/2015

I like the looks of the stainless steel interior. The plastic utensil rack and dish racks in the dishwasher are very flimsy/cheap. My older model had a "glass express" option which I used a lot. We asked about this option when purchasing our new dishwasher, but were told it is no longer available. If I recommended this product, I would let them know about the flimsy, plastic racks.

Quiet

Tomuchstress 1/29/2015

Bought a month ago. I do not like the fact I have to open the door to see if wash cycle is done. I have already had to call for repair. The racks are all very cheap plastic. End caps on rails broken and will probably keep breaking because they are not strong enough for what they do. Also the dishwasher is not attached on the left side of the cabinet and moves in and out.

Not as good as my old one!

Barbupnorth 12/9/2014

The new dishwashers take forever to finish a cycle. I know thats because of EPA rules so it doesn't matter which brand you buy. The silverware basket is awkward to use, you have to use the slots of it dumps the sillverware. You have to put stuff in the slots or it doesn't get clean. My old Whirlpool had a much better basket. My silverware has a wide base so the knives and serving spoons have to go in the open part. They slide together and I end up hand washing them because they are stll dirty. But the glasses and plates look good.

Dishwasher review mixed responses

dhs1940 11/17/2014

I love the look of the outside - a deciding factor. Nice features include deep shelves, clips to hold plastic lids, holders to keep wine glasses upright, and multiple options for washing and drying. Problem areas include the lack of a "rinse and hold" option and the fact that the containers for silver/flatware pull loose very easily and spill the flatware.
