"Hate this dishwasher"
Pros: It has never broken. Dishes come out pretty clean. It looks fine. Cons: Soooo noisy. And the silverware basket on the door is a huge hassle. Really dumb design. I bought this based on having read great reviews about it, and now I cannot imagine those reviews were real.

"A review on the Whirpool Dishwasher"
I have owned this Whirlpool dishwasher for over 3 years now. I love the fact that it has several different setting I can choose from. I really like the fast wash it offers and the air dry. This helps me to save on my energy bills. I would like to see a newer version with a economy setting to use less water. I dislike the fact that I cannot set it up to start washing in the future. My previous dishwasher had a setting for future washing. I enjoyed this for doing washing at night while we were asleep. I have not had to replace anything in this unit. It does get the dishes very clean. I have only had one problem when it would not drain all the way but I was able to fix it by pulling up the floater. It is a very good product and will most likely by another Whirlpool in the future.

"whirlpool stainless steel built in dishwasher"
i have owned this dishwasher for six years. i like that the dishwasher is built in. i like that it is stainless steel. i like that it matches all my other appliances in the kitchen. it is very easy to clean, and doesnt look streaky after cleaning it. i do not like that it is relatively small. i have a lot of dishes to do and not everything fits in it. dishes are not always clean to my satisfaction when i really load it, and i hate pre rinsing before putting it in the dishwasher. i have not repaired or replaced my dishwasher. it works wonderfully. i would buy this brand again and i would recommend it to a friend. i love my dishwasher and would never get rid of it. it is very practical for everyday use especially when i have company at the house and dont want to be doing dishes forever.

"It has the looks and works!"
There is nothing bad I could say about this dishwasher! I hate washing dishes, so does my husband. I love this dishwasher because I can put dirty dishes in and clean dishes come out, I know that sounds really generic but I don't pre-wash or pre-rinse any of my dishes. I scrape any left over food out in the trash and put the plate in (even with dried Ketchup stuck on the plate) and it does great! This dishwasher is also great for sterilizing baby bottles and accessories. I use the 4-hour delay almost every night, after dinner I will load the dishwasher set it to 4-hour delay and I am still able to get a full bath tub of hot water before bed. The only problem I've had with it was when I first had it installed. The buttons are on top of the dishwasher so it is easier to select your washing options before you close the dishwasher, at first I would select my options and not close the dishwasher fast enough, when this happens the start button flashes a blue light and doesn't start, but that's OK you can just hit the start button again and it will start. It took me about 2 tries before I figured it out. I would recommend this dishwasher to anyone in the market for one!

"A Love it or leave it dishwasher"
I've owned this dishwasher for three years now. At first, I loved it. It's attractive, goes well with my other Whirlpool stainless appliances. It's quiet, which is an improvement over my previous noisy one. It cleaned dishes well. The top rack adjusts to a lower level. There are adjustable holders on the racks that are nice. It was a fancy new dishwasher that held a lot of promises. Now, it's been three years and the love factor is starting to dwindle. Dishes aren't getting clean like the used too. The wash cycle will turn off mid-wash. The adjustable holders that were a novelty are just pretty much useless. There doesn't seem to be enough space for glasses on top. The small glasses don't fit right, the large ones are sometimes too big to fit in the designated slot. I'm often running the dishwasher with the top rack full and the bottom rack half-empty. If I had the choice to repair or replace it, I would probably try to repair it first. Only because it is only three years old and it still looks good in my kitchen. But only if the repair cost was low. I would be pretty hesitant to buy the same brand. I purchased a Whirlpool microwave at the same time and I've had trouble with that as well. But the refrigerator by the same brand, I've had absolutely no problems. I most likely would not recommend this brand to a friend. It's just not as great of a dishwasher as I had hoped it would be.

"Today I am giving you a review on my newer Whirpool dish washer I purchased."
The whirpool dishwasher that I purchased is only a couple months old, as of right now I am very satisfied with the condition of the dishwasher along with its performance. It certainly does what it needs to do by washing the dishes correctly the first time with not spots or left on food. With the dish washer I purchased you do not have to scrub your dishes before you put them in the dish washer which was an important to me. Although I don't know the long term problems I could have with the dish washer since it's only a few months old I hope there will be very little problems in the future of this dish washer by keeping it well maintained and keep my eyes open for any potential problems that can be avoided with the proper care of the dishwasher. So far very satisfied with this dish washer I have purchased.

"My Whirlpool Dishwasher changed my life!"
I was once one of those people who spent hours washing dishes for a large family. It began to be a real big pain- so the family decided to invest in a dishwasher. We went and purchased a Whirlpool dishwasher. It is probably the best investment we've ever made. I like how easy it is to use, just stack them up, fill it up with soap, press a button written in plain english- and that's it! I've had this dishwasher for about 2 years now, and haven't had a complaint about it (it is a little noisy- but I wouldn't call it a complaint) and I've never had to have it repaired! I would definitely recommend this product to a friend- and I actually have. My sister purchased one not too long after purchasing mine- and she loves it as well! It is a great and inexpensive item that every home should have!

"I Love My New Dishwasher"
Until six months ago I held the title of dishwasher in my household. Now that I have gladly resigned that title to a machine I adore the amount of my time and aggravation in my daily clean up schedule. No longer do I have dry, cracked hands that soaked in filthy water. All I have to do now is rinse and place inside. No more worries for me about the water temperature and possible bacteria. Everything comes out perfect. I would not say that there is anything I dislike about my dishwasher. I suppose in a perfect world a dishwasher would empty itself but I am pleased to be spared the hassle I faced before. So far there has not been any issues with my machine. About two months after I splurged on the dishwasher I ran out of the appropriate detergent. In a hurry, on my way out the door I did foolishly use dish soap. I returned home to a bubbly kitchen floor. Lucky for me, my machine still worked. I am one satisfied customer and would absolutely reccomend my brand to anyone.

"My Husband Says It Works Wonders"
My husband says our dishwasher works wonders. He seems to think it scrapes the extra food off the dishes and then washes them. While I disagree, and encourage him to at least rinse the dishes, I must say, this is not a major bone of contention in our household because, really, our dishes do come out clean! Maybe I should be the one who changes my ways and stops rinsing. We have had the dishwasher for about 7 years. It has more buttons and functions than I even use. I particularly do like the "sani-rinse" cycle. It also does a quick rinse and has an extra scrubbing pots and pans setting. We had to buy a new cover for the dishwasher once because the old one became damaged. My husband found it through a used appliance dealer. Was an easy thing to do. Other than that, we have never been in need of any repairs.

"Great Dishwasher for the Money"
We purchased this dishwasher four years ago. It still runs like the day we bought it. We use this dishwasher about five days a week. This particular model is the Quiet Partner II and it lives up to the name. I have owned dishwashers in the past that were so loud you could not watch TV comfortably. This unit is pleasantly quiet. The TV sits only 20 feet from the dishwasher, and we don't have to turn up the volume at all. This unit is also quite powerful. It powers through much of the grease and grime we leave on our pots, pans, and plates with little or no scrubbing. It even has a separate washing blade for the top rack, which is great for cleaning large utensils that do not fit in the removable silverware rack. One nice feature about the silverware rack is that it fits nicely in the door, leaving more room on the bottom for plates and pots. We have never had to repair this machine at all, and it functions great every day. If I had one comlaint about it, the door tends to get dirty with residue arund the seal. Other than that, there is little performance wise to separate this model from many of the higher end brands.

"Very satisfied customer!"
My husband and I decided to purchase a stainless steel Whirlpool dishwasher when we were moving into our house. We are very satisfied with this dishwasher! Our old dishwasher was horrible as we usually had to clean off all the dishes before even putting them in the dishwasher! Then the dishes would still be all wet when it was finished. Whirlpool, however, is much, much better! The dishwasher cleans all the dishes quickly, and it gets all the food and stains off of our plates and silverware. The dishes are nice and dry when they come out, and the dishwasher doesn't make much noise either! It's great! We haven't had any problems since we bought it, and haven't had to make any repairs or anything. I would definitely buy this exact dishwasher again, and recommend it to all my friends as well. Needless to say, I am a very satisfied customer.

"Review On Dishwasher"
I have had it for about 6-7 years. I am Somewhat satisfied because it does the work and let's me fit in a lot of dishes. I haven't had it repaired or replaced yet so that is a good plus. The only thing I dislike about the dishwasher is the amount of noise that it makes. Other than that I am happy with it and would recommend it a friend, especially the brand whirlpool.

"Whirlpool Dishwasher review"
I have had my Whirlpool gold dishwasher for going on 6 years now. It has been absolutely fantastic. The dishes come out clean, its easy to load/ unload, it has plenty of volume, the soap "box" is easy to use and no mess, and it uses the right amount of everything to create that perfect shine on glassware. I would and have recommended this brand of dishwasher to my friends, and I would certainly buy another if it ever broke. I haven't had to do any repairs, and I expect at this rate it might just last forever. My only issue is that I wish it had some larger display when you unload it to say that the dishes are clean. When they are clean, and you need to take out 1 cup and unload later, it can get confusing to my spouse because the "clean" light turns off. Anyways; 5 star appliance!!!

"Review of the standard issue dish washer in the apartment complex"
I have lived in this apartment complex for close to two years now. I have never had any issues with this particular dishwasher. Every time I have put in my dishes, they have always come out streak and left over free. Only thing that i have ever done wrong with it was I once borrowed some dishwasher solution from a friend that I had never used before. After I had filled the solution pool and started the washer, I came back to find it was overflowing. I should have checked to make sure I was using the correct amount of solution for my washer. I have never had to repair it or replace any parts in mine. It has always been faithful. I would also recommend this dish washer to a friend who was looking to purchase one. It is definitely on the lower end of the spectrum as far as quality goes, but it gets the job done with no problems.

"I love my Dishwasher"
I have nice Whirlpool dishwasher. I have owned it for around four years now and it is still working well. In these four years, I have never repaired it or I don't remember having any problems with it. I use it at least five times a week and even more during festive season. I love the way it works, first it is very energy efficient, second it washes quite fast and clean, third I love the way it dries the dishes. The only thing I don't like about it is it's quite small for my family. But its not the brand problem, I chose the wrong size. As it is small it is very easy to move and is very handy. I would always buy the dishwasher from Whirlpool and suggest everyone else to do so.

"The Best Kitchen Appliance I Own"
I had owned two previous dishwashers, both were portables and both Whirlpool. I was pretty satisfied with both, but didn't really care for the fact they were portables, and the rolling around, hooking up, unhooking frankly got to be a pain. We suffered a kitchen fire in 2006, and if anything good can come out of a fire, a new Whirlpool built in dishwasher was at or close to the top of the list. It has a height adjustable upper rack, to accept larger cookware below, a flip down silverware rack, and best of all, unlike my previous dishwashers, this one will actually "grind" smaller food particles, instead of clogging up. The control panel allows me to select a wide range of washing functions from pots and pans, to just a light rinse. In the four plus years I have used this dishwasher, there have been no repairs needed. There aren't even any cracks or rust beginning on the rack prongs yet. If and when this particular dishwasher gives up the ghost, I would definitely look at another Whirlpool Gold.

"Nice, Quality Dishwasher for a Nice Price"
My wife and I bought the Whirlpool Quiet Partner I about 2 years ago and we have been satisfied with it. We paid about $350 for the dishwasher and it does its job well. There is plenty of rack space and a removable utensil basket which makes it nice unloading. The dishwasher comes with more features than we will ever use, but the delay start is one that is nice. There are quieter dishwashers out there, but by no means is this a loud appliance. It does not disturb watching TV or having a phone conversation. The only negative point that I have is that the Whirlpool Logo fell off the face of the dishwasher, but this may be due to my 2 year old daughter than with the craftmanship. Overall it was a good purchase and we are happy with it. We would definetly consider buying another Whirlpool again based on the performace of this one.

"My Whirlpool Dishwasher: Four Years and Still Going!"
I have owned my dishwasher since 2006. I really love it. I didn't think the water got hot enough when the dishwasher was operating. So, after consulting the manual, I realized that if I run the water in my sink nearest the washer until it gets the hottest it can be, the water in the dishwasher will also be hotter. I always like to wash/rinse my dishes before I place them in the dishwasher and do that before food dries on them. So far, my dishes and glasses have come out sparkling with no water spots, compared to my previous dishwasher. It's also much quieter and it has a stronger sprayer. I have always used the heat dry cycle and not the air dry because my machine is energy efficient. It has nice height inside so, tall items can easily fit on the bottom level. My dishwasher has never needed any special repair. We did have to replace a dish rack roller, which my husband did easily. I try to make sure the drain stays clear, so I have had no issues with that. I would recommend the Whirlpool brand to my friends, but would also suggest going for a stainless steel tub instead of a plastic one.

"Whirlpool Dishwasher, a reliable unit."
I recently moved into an apartment about 4 months ago, which was furnished with this dish washer. It has an upper and lower level tray area so I can usually get dishes complete in one large load. There is also an area to put my dinnerware and knives. There is plenty of room on the lower level so large pots and bowls can fit inside. About the only dislike I can think of is maybe one out of every five washes some of the dishes still have bits of food particles that did not come out during the wash. So far, no repairs have been necessary. I would recommend this dishwasher to a friend.

"Best dishwasher I've ever owned!"
I've had this dishwasher for a little over a year now and I love it! Every other dishwasher I've owned I had to completely rinse off everything off my dishes before putting in the dishwasher. Well not this one! I can put all my dishes in completely covered with food and even if everything has dried the dishwasher manages to get everything squeaky clean! Haven't had to do any repairs on it yet! Best dishwasher you can get for the price. I would highly recommend this dishwasher or any other whirlpool brand dishwasher to anyone!
