      Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

      The first dishwasher installed leaked throughout the new kitchen from a defective part. Our installer said do not repair, get another new one. We needed this small size, otherwise I would purchases another brand. After another 2+week wait, another Whirlpool dishwasher was installed. 2 months later still working well - no leaks. It does work well for a small dishwasher. It is all a 2 person household needs

        This is exactly what I was looking for. Really quite and the stainless interior is so nice. It's very quite and the dishes are very clean. Just wish I had room for a 24".

            I wanted to work a dishwasher into my kitchen renovation but don't have much space. My household consists of my husband and myself so we only have to run it a couple of times a week. It gets my dishes clean and sparkly and runs relatively quietly.

                Nice washer, needs a shorter cycle added. This would make it easier to do small loads that are not very dirty.

                Product is generally good but has a few issues that could be considered for improvement.

                    Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

                    we ordered this dishwasher for our renovated kitchen because of space issues. We wanted a dishwasher but a regular size would not fit it. The dishwasher is now running well, but it took us awhile to figure it out. The first problem was streaks and stains on the dishes and the door of the dishwasher. I have had a dishwasher in other homes, but this had me stumped. I tried changing the small adjustment for hard water and that did not help. I had our water temperature checked by a plumber but that proved to be ok. Finally I bought the premium dishwasher detergent and that solved the problem. It is a little disconcerting that I have to buy the very best detergent or the washer doesn't work well. The rinse dispenser is difficult to deal with. The little window that indicates when rinse aid is needed is very hard to read. The first time I filled it I had no idea when I had put enough in, so, of course, I overfilled it and ended up with rinse aid all over the door. Finally after a couple weeks I think I have it figured out, but it's not exactly user friendly. And finally, the top rack is very difficult to move in and out. It does not move smoothly and the glassware rattles and jumps as I move it in and out - not a serious problem, but an annoyance. I know I cannot expect this little guy to have the features of the bigger and more expensive models, and I wish we could have put in a regular size dishwasher, but you asked for a review so here it is. Hope it gives you some useful information.

                        We had been led to believe that such a small dishwasher would be very noisy. We were pleased with its quiet operation and the quality of the cleaning. Very easy to use, and very easy to install beneath our kitchen counter. For the quality is reasonably priced.

                                        Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

                                        Bought this dishwasher and had it installed in a home we had just purchased. We kept noticing water on the carpet in front of the sink, but none in front of the dishwasher. Called a plumber as we thought a water line in the wall was leaking. Turned out that the dishwasher was leaking underneath, but only when it was running. Because of the design of my floor the water was getting under the tile and moving across to the front of the sink.Had a service person come out to inspect the dishwasher and it turns out that a retaining ring inside the dishwasher tub that holds the pump and drain unit in place was broken. A piece was broken off of it and was not in the unit, leaving the only assumption that it was assembled this way and was shipped past quality control. The plus is that the warranty is in effect and is being honored by the company. Very disappointing, to say the least.
