        Although we would have preferred a full size dishwasher, we only had room for a compact model. We are very pleased with dishwashing results and especially like the delayed start feature.

              I installed this four weeks ago and I'm very pleased. The only drawback is I wish the control panel was lighted.

                    I had the compact tall tub dishwasher installed 5 months ago and have been pleased until a week ago. A part or 2 are now on order under warranty to be replaced. The unit stopped taking in wash water since the sensor or defective part indicates it has filled with water. I do like the size and is ideal for a couple. The capacity would not work for a family.

                                My wife bought this about six weeks ago and are very happy with it. It is very quiet and does a great job on cleaning dishes because of two features: one is that, in addition to the sprayer on the bottom, there is smaller spinning water sprayer located right under the top rack, so even tightly spaced bowls on the top are cleaned; the other feature is the spacing and layout of the racks that allow for a compact, efficient load. So, for a smaller-sized washer, we can get a pretty good load into it and have things come out clean.

                                      After having a portable for a long time we were concerned about the capacity of an 18 inch wide undercounter. But the tall tub held almost the same as the large portable. Does an excellent job and is quiet. Does everything but put the dishes back up for you.

                                            There is only 1 thing I would change. I'd like to have a spot in the silverware holder that is wider & has a flip cover to hold small plastic lids. Otherwise it's quite & works great!

                                                  We have been using the dishwasher for a couple of months now and overall we like it. It is very easy to use with straight forward controls. Has a tough time completely drying plastic tupperware, but overall does a great job of cleaning the dishes.

                                                        Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

                                                        I purchased this dishwasher to replace a cheap Avanti unit that failed. We needed an 18" unit to fit our cabinet and this particular unit seemed to be a good balance between cost and features. The fit and finish of this dishwasher is very nice. The interior layout is very well optimized in my opinion and it holds a lot for its size. Sound level is very good as well. You can hear that it is running, but it is quiet enough to not be disruptive to a conversation in the same room. It does a very good job of cleaning off everything that we put in it, whether pre rinsed or not. I particularly like the silverware holder since it spaces out individual utensils so that food doesn't get stuck between them.
                                                        I have a family of 3 and generally run it once a week. With a standard size dishwasher we would run out of dishes or silverware before it got full. With this unit we are able to get more complete loads run through it. I do not feel like I am wasting water and electricity just so I can get something clean that we ran out of.
                                                        Overall, I am very pleased with our decision to purchase this dishwasher.
