Clean dishes in half the time 3 so your plates, pans and glasses are thoroughly cleaned up and taken care of in just an hour.

No One Has Fewer Repairs 20 Years in a Row

For 20 years in a row, no other brand has had fewer dishwasher repairs, so you can rest assured it will continue to function the way your family needs it to.

Cycle Memory Quickly start your dishwasher with one button. It automatically remembers the last cycle you picked so it's stored and ready to go.

Soil Sensor Determines how dirty dishes are and adjusts the Normal cycle as needed to make sure dishes come out clean.

In-Door 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.

Normal Cycle Use for normal amounts of food soil to clean up leftover messes from your day-to-day meals.

Heavy Cycle Take care of heavily-soiled messes and other hard-to-clean dishes without the extra elbow grease by adding extra time to the cycle.

Heated Dry Option Use a clean, dry dish straight from the dishwasher thanks to added heat for drying. For optimal drying results, use this option with rinse aid.

ENERGY STAR® Certified Exceeds government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on utility bills.

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.

Good Dishwasher

Gregg 3/26/2017

This is my 2nd whirlpool dishwasher. The 1st one was stellar. I recently upgraded to a new whirlpool Dishwasher With the Sensor Cycle. It was easy to install, is exceptionally quiet when running, and meets my expectations for cleaning dishes and silverware.

Quiet Operation and easy to use.

Steven 2/21/2017

I've only had this for a couple of weeks so I cannot determine longevity or durability at this point, but, it efficiently cleans the dishes and is very quiet. I'm not a big fan of the silverware basket which hangs next to the door. I find that it often gets in the way when opening and closing the door, however, I suspect it was engineered this way to maximize space for dishes in the lower rack.

Love the blue light.

Sherri 1/23/2017

So nice and quiet...love the blue light. My only complaint is the door closure and handle. I wish is was a locking door. I worry that the closing mechanism will wear out way before the dishwasher. In addition, the door handle is so recessed which makes keeping it clean rather difficult.

I love it. The dishes get clean. It's easy to load. It is so quiet that I can actually hear the TV when it is running.

Great except for.....

Me 11/28/2016

The door mounted silverware tray takes some getting used to. If you don't empty it first, you drip water from the top two trays onto the dry silverware. Cleans well and quieter than my last one.

Quiet as a Purring Kitty

junglejoy 11/21/2016

Have had this just a little over a week but am pleased with the quietness of the dishwasher and that the dishes are clean and dry when I put them away. I'm not real fond of the skinny silverware holder so keep it in the door for my large spoons and spatulas for cooking. I kept the one from my last machine as it was the only thing that was still like new and am using it in the dishwasher and fits in it fine. The little gadget for the wine glasses (I didn't even know what it was until I went back to the store to ask the salesman) doesn't snap down like it's supposed to and they offered to send out one of their service men to fix it, but since I have no wine glasses it's immaterial to me that it works and isn't in my way. Those were the two reasons for not giving it a 5 star.

Whirlpool dishwasher

Little Bit 10/20/2016

I'm very happy with the dishwasher. It's so quiet I have to get close to it to make sure it's running. The only thing I didn't like was that I had to go on line to print out the manual. There were tons of pages because it also printed the Spanish version which I didn't need.
