Regrettably, rarely works.

Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

My contractor installed the dishwasher prior to my move-in. It did not seem to drain nor dry however, we gave it a little patience & time to see if there were easy work arounds. It did not function on Heavy or Pots & Pans. Then Normal cycle ultimately stalls out mid-cycle. After 6 weeks, we called to schedule service. We scheduled an authorized service provider who gave us a 9 to 5 pm window for scheduled date. I work Mon. - Sat. I hired someone to be at home to receive service. After multiple calls throughout the day, the provider said 6 pm arrival. By 7 pm, no service person. I called Whirlpool again and asked for their insights. They said they would send another service provider company. We scheduled. I requested an afternoon so that an 8 hour day of waiting would not be lost. After receiving 4 voicemails, and being unable to return the calls, they scheduled for morning when no one is home. They also said that the dishwasher is out of warranty and the minimum $139 would be charged. I left a message and emailed the warranty but not response to either. I was not able to hire a person to be present in the morning so cancelled the appointment. I give up.

Pleasantly Surprised in Laurel

By Dot

from Laurel, MD

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

I live in a small apartment with limited space. In 2007 I had an apartment sized dishwasher. I used daily till April of 2017. It was failing and I called for service and was advised to replace it. I selected the Whirlpool over the old brand, ordered it and got it within five days, and had it installed. I was pleasantly surprised that the filter had been changed. The old one had been very difficult to clean. The dishwasher has been wonderful - my dishes are cleaner than they had been before. It really gets the dishes clean.

Absolutely Horrible

By :(

from Toronto

Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

Does not wash dishes. Instead it makes a loud racket for hours and hours seemingly splashing more dirty water around. This is not a filter problem. This unit is complete garbage. After one year of use it needs to be replaced. Terribly noisy, terribly slow and worst of all it doesn't do what it's supposed to do.

Superb Cleaning

Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

This dishwasher does a superb job of cleaning. The only reason that I gave a rating of 4 stars is due to the lengthy cycle times.

Compact and Efficient

Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

Bought this to fit my kitchen and am very happy with it. It's small but more than adequate, especially for two people or even when you host a party of 6.

Love my small dishwasher!

By Anita

Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

This small dishwasher fits my needs to have fewer dishes/utensils and running the dishwasher maybe twice a week. If you are a small family this will meet your needs. Good option settings and space inside is perfect. Does even the large pots! Check this out before getting the larger one. Also I have an additional cabinet space in my kitchen!

Do your research before you buy

By JH

from British Columbia

Comments about Whirlpool Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this as it was recommended by the company I bought it from. Yes, it washes the dishes but it doesn't load well. It is poorly designed on the top shelf and the bottom shelf pulls out crooked and drops out every time we pull out the bottom shelf. The circulating wash arm hits the dinner dishes all the time.
