Sensor Cycle

Automatically selects the right wash and dry settings for your load by using two separate sensors to measure temperature, soil level and load size once during the prewash and once during the wash cycle.

Image Feature

Silverware Spray

Helps remove stuck-on food from utensils, like peanut butter on knives and oatmeal on spoons. It delivers a concentrated shower of water to the in-door silverware basket to virtually eliminate rewashing.

Image Feature

1-Hour Wash Cycle

Clean dishes in half the time 2 so your plates, pans and glasses are thoroughly cleaned up and taken care of in just an hour.

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.

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.

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.

Adjustable Upper Rack Manually raise or lower the upper rack two inches to better fit tall items.

Folding Tines Secure dishes during the wash cycle or fold down to create space for larger items.

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.

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.

Solid Dishwasher

Ellen 3/15/2017

I've now had this dishwasher for about a month and I'm happy with the features. It has a "sensor" clean that gauges the cleanliness of the dishes and adjusts accordingly. I also like that the top rack can adjust so my taller glassware and water bottles will fit. This dishwasher is super quiet compared to my last one. I can hardly tell it's on! Cons: I would like to have the soap dispenser a bit higher on the inside door so I can access it easily even with tall spatulas in the utensil holder.

dish queen 3/8/2017

The dishes came out so clean, especially with the silverware spray. After 2 weeks of use I only now realized that the silverware basket has a button to open one side. I don't know the purpose of this but maybe someone reading this will know. The normal wash cycle runs for 3 hrs. ( a bit long) The instructions say this is the most energy efficient cycle which I don't quite get but there is also a faster 1 hr. wash cycle

Great at getting my dishes really clean!

Momma Maddie 3/1/2017

We have had this dishwasher now for about two months and have been very pleased. It gets my dishes so much cleaner than my old machine and requires less pre-soaking and scrubbing to get food off plates and bowls. The only complaint I have is that it does not get my dishes dry if I have anything plastic in the washer. I have heard taht this is pretty much the case with all new dishwashers so I do not think it is just an error with this one. I have a lot of plastic sippy cups and things for my two little boys so it is something that really affects me. Overall...I can handle hand drying a few dishes since they are at least getting very clean with this machine.

Mrs. Christmas 2/22/2017

This is a nice dishwasher. I was in a position in which I had to buy a simple, inexpensive one, and this one has been better than I thought it would be. It is very quiet, which I like. The only issues I have are that it seems to use rinse aid faster than I thought, (although it might be normal compared with other dishwashers), and still sometimes leaves a bit of water on the dishes even with heat dry. It has a lot of space on the bottom rack, but most of the tines are fairly close so I have to get creative with some of my deeper bowls to get them to fit. It would hold a lot of plates, however, which would be nice for a large family, or a lot of guests. Does a good job on pots and pans, too. I'm pretty pleased.

Happy with our new Whirlpool appliances

Dory 2/21/2017

While this was purchased a while ago, we are in the process of a total remodel of our kitchen. I am very pleased with the appearance. The decor matches our new Whirlpool range as well as our Whirlpool microwave and refrigerator which were purchased approximately five years ago. I have read the manual and am very happy with the features of this dishwasher. If it works as well as it explains, there will be no complaints. We should be up and running within the week!

Now our Dishes and Glassware come out sparkling !

Jewels 2/16/2017

After over a year of "fixing" our 10 yr + G.E. Dishwasher, we decided it was time to purchase a new one. After going through reviews, I chose the Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher with silverware spray. The salesman showed several models and brands but I knew I wanted this particular dishwasher. I'm very pleased with everything about it, especially how well it cleans and how quiet it is while running. Have put some dishes in the new washer that had been washed by the G.E. and it was amazing how clean and shiny they were. Glasses came out sparkling, and dishes didn't look grimy.

Lee 2/1/2017

We have a dishwasher that works, that is quiet, that is efficient. Our old washer was loud and didn't really do the job. This Whirlpool Gold is ranked as one of the quietest. We like the option of delayed washing. Lots of room on the top shelf for glassware, and the bottom is all space, because the silverware holder is on the door. Can be moved to the bottom also. Cons: Slots in silverware holder are too small for the handles on my forks, so have to flip the slots up. Also, cycles are extremely long. I think the minimum normal cycle is 2hrs 36min. I understand that is the energy efficient part, but that's a long time for dishes.

Quietly clean but installation was not easy

Chuck 1/28/2017

Love the functions and it works great. Only had problems installing it. We have tiled floors, but not in the dishwasher cavity. The device was not easy to slide in and level up. Once it was in position, the bottom panel was difficult to install. OK, so the dog chewed up one of the plastic screws - i ordered and Whirlpool sent new ones right away. After it was all together, the door seemed to hit the opening which required more repositioning and EVENTUALLY it works.

Cordon Rouge 1/19/2017

I almost bought a Bosch because I thought less expensive models such as from GE & Whirlpool were simply not good performers. Boy was I wrong! I had seen good reviews but usually it is an average of good and bad opinions. I replaced a GE and the Whirlpool surprised me because it cleans properly even in the 1 hour cycle! and it is not noisy to boot. My previous one took close to 3 hours and was loud....I also had reservations "at first" against the controls on the top of the door, but you can actually see and operate with no problem. Highly recommended.

Just What I Was Looking For!!

GCMama 1/17/2017

We bought this dishwasher a little over a month ago. Our old Whirlpool dishwasher finally gave out after 12 years of awesomeness; the repair was going to be around $200 so we decided to invest in a new one instead. A couple features I loved about our old dishwasher, that had now become must-haves for our new, included: - The fold down platform in the top rack. I believe this is for large silverware pieces, but we use it for our kids' cup lids that have straws attached. - The silverware basket on the door/attach to the outside of the bottom rack. I think it is a waste of space for the silverware basket to be in the bottom rack. -The silverware basket fold down lids for the different sections. This dishwasher has them in smaller sections which is an improvement over the old DW that only had two large fold downs. At first, none of the dishwashers we looked at had these features. Then we found this one. It had the features I have grown to love. I also like the adjustable top rack and the silverware sprayer. The only minus, is I am not a fan of the controls being under the counter top. Not sure exactly why this is a new feature on almost all dishwashers. I like being able to see how much longer the cycle is, if set on delay when it will start, and the Clean indicator. Now I have no idea what is going on once I close the door. This is why I gave design 4 out of 5 stars. This DW is quieter than our old one.

I don't like too fancy or needing to take a course in how to use appliances. This was easy to figure out, our glasses became clear once again, the energy-saving hour mode does a great job for us and it has tremendous capacity. Very impressed which is not usually the case. Can't evaluate quality until we've had it a few years. So far, so good.

kitkat 1/11/2017

Like our new Whirlpool dishwasher. It is quiet and dishes come out clean and spot free. What else could we ask for? A shorter cycle would be nice, but supposedly from the energy rating the length of the cycle doesn't cost more. Find that difficult to comprehend, but talking to others with new dishwashers it seems to be typical because 'energy efficiency requires more time'.
