Very happy with this dishwasher
5 Star Review   By JF007 on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

Caveat - we have only had the dishwasher 3 weeks, but so far it has been awesome! We originally ordered a Bosch online from Loews. It was going to take 2 weeks to be delivered, and the install was $179, plus, we would have to go into an actual store beforehand to sign install paperwork (thus negating buying it online in the first place). We cancelled the order, and bought this dishwasher from Home Depot instead. Delivery could be set up for the next day. The installer was very professional, and got it fully installed and cleaned up in less than an hour, for half the cost of the Lowes installation. The dishwasher itself looks sleek and seems well made. It is much quieter than our old one (a Maytag, 10 years old). Drawbacks are a plastic interior, and no countdown timer for time remaining on a cycle. If you don't mind either of those two factors, this seems to be a terrific dishwasher for the money. Quiet, washes the dishes super clean (we use a rinse aid and Cascade), and very energy efficient. It has a lot of room inside, and we can fit baking sheets without a problem. The cutlery holder is on the actual door, which was different for us. It snaps in and out to unload, so we don't mind it. We really like the overnight (slow cycle) as it uses less water and energy. Overall, so far, we are very pleased with the purchase.

Turns dirty dishes into clean dishes
4 Star Review   By misofuni on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

It's got all the features I need. It turns dirty dishes into to clean dishes... most of the time, thus the average quality. I think we just haven't figured out the best way to use the silverware basket as that seems to be the difficulty in this dishwasher thoroughly cleaning everything. there always seems to be a peanut buttered knife still waiting for a shower when we're putting the dishes away. Other than that, we're pretty happy with it. I'd buy it again. But again, we're a simple people and are happy to have a machine that saves us the effort of hand washing.

this dishwasher is a good one it would be better with the stailess steal interior but I did not order that one. I like the flatwear basket but it does not take my design size through the slots.

5 Star Review   By js101 on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

Dishwasher cleans and dries dishes beautifully. It runs longer than the 34 yr old Whirlpool it replaced. I haven't had it long enough to tell if it's saving me money yet, but so far I'm very pleased.I like to be able to move the silverware basket. I prefer it upright to load and then I can move it to the door if I meed more room.

good for the price
4 Star Review   By candi on Home Depot - May 7, 2013   

I checked rc willey outlet, lowes and thought lowes had the best one for us for the right price. But then i checked Home Depot online & discovered the same dishwasher i was going to buy at Lowes for cheaper and they deliver & take away for free. Only had it less then a month so i can't comment on the durability, but it seems to be doing the job as of now. It is quiet and the utensil basket is removeable. The only thing that they need to specify is it doesn't come with an electrical wire connection, & we found that out after they took our old maytag junk away, we could of taken it off of that one & used it. So we had to go to home depot buy the electrical wiring & then my husband had to wire it. blah blah blah it took longer than i thought it would? I'm a woman and i have no idea why dishwasher's don't have a plug cord? Now i'm finally happy :)

Like this dishwasher
5 Star Review   By lingcuisine on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

We replaced a 13-year-old Whirlpool dishwasher with this upgrade. It's basically the similar model with newer design. Our older unit has a burnt motor. We like our new dishwasher as it is quieter and gets the job done with half the energy use compare to the old one. It does take longer to clean dishes as a trade-off. The filters are designed much better than the old one when it comes to cleaning. You have to use Rinse aid to get dishes completely dry.

Good But Slow and Less Effective Than the Maytag It Replaced
4 Star Review   By Bodger on Home Depot - Apr 9, 2013   

Maybe it is all in the name of energy efficiency but there is no doubt that this new machine doesn't clean as well as the ancient deceased Maytag. Perhaps it is partly because the detergent cups are so tiny or the fact that it seems to use cooler water. On the upside it uses far less energy and water and it is considerably quieter than the old one. The latter is really important because it runs for twice as long as I'm used to.

Works great!
5 Star Review   By swph on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013   

After reading other reviews, I was concerned that the latest energy efficient dishwashers didn't clean very well, but my experience is quite the opposite. I decided to stress test the new dishwasher and gave it an unrinsed lasagna baking dish to clean and it came out SPOTLESS. I can't complain about that. As to quietness, I can still hear that the dishwasher is running, but it's much quieter than the one I replaced, so I'm satisfied.

I got a lemon
1 Star Review   By windrider1150 on Home Depot - Apr 1, 2013   

I bought this dishwasher 9-11-12 as part of a kitchen remodel. This is the one major mistake I made. It does not get the dishes clean, especially the silverware. I called Whirlpool Customer Service. They were condescending and belittling. Telling me I did not understand how to use a dishwasher (I have had dishwashers for over 40 years). Frustrated, I explained my concerns to the Whirlpool store rep in Lowe's one afternoon. He advised me to call service department and keep calling them until I get results. I have lost count on the number of service calls I have endured. The service tech agrees that the dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes...but the dishwasher computer shows no error message so there is nothing they will do except keep responding when I call. He states that he could exchange the product instantly with Whirlpool's approval. Whirlpool does not stand behind what they make. I bought this because the reviews were good, but this buy is a lemon, and they should replace it. Do not take a chance. You want a company that listens and responds to the fact that this is an inferior product. Cons Low quality, Not durable, does not clean I would not recommend this to a friend Share

A good buy
4 Star Review   By Adonof on Home Depot - Mar 31, 2013   

Overall, the dishwasher works well. It's quiet and energy efficient. I don't like the silverware basket being on the door as they don't always get fully cleaned. Also, a store brand rinse aid left a terrible taste on the dishes which was fixed by using a diluted name brand rinse aid instead.

5 Star Review   By elisrana on Home Depot - Mar 27, 2013   

Looks nice, very quiet. The silverware tray in the door is a nice idea but can be awkward to use, especially with the lid to it down. Otherwise, it works awesome. Definitely recommend it!

5 Star Review   By Carol on Home Depot - Jan 30, 2013   

Just remodeled our outdated kitchen. I chose this dishwasher based on look and reviews from other buyers. Love it! We opened up our area so noise of an appliance is definitely an issue. We don't hear it running. We made the right decision.

Excellent Cleaning!
5 Star Review   By Dish12 on Home Depot - Dec 26, 2012   

This is an excellent dishwasher. Cleans well, is very easy to self install, and is very quiet. Eco dry so-so. If you want complete dry use "High Heat Dry" setting. This is the ONLY draw back I can find. Whirlpool makes excellent products from my experience, and this model is a fantastic buy. Also it has plenty of interior space with its tall tub design.

Very pleased with this machine
4 Star Review   By smithster on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Replaced one that came with the house, and BOY what a difference! I never knew how loud that old thing was. This one I have to put my ear to to know it's on, which I love. It has plenty of room, and I can fit the tall cups in the top rack. The basket for cutlery can be a bit fiddly - some of ours have handles too wide for the slots, but there is an open center piece for those. I also noticed that it did smell mouldy once or twice when we first got it, but I ran a sanitize wash and haven't had that problem since.

VERY GOOD AT GETTING DISHES CLEAN
4 Star Review   By RANDY on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012

Nice mid-price machine
4 Star Review   By txmessica on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012   

We replaced our 20 year old Whirlpool dishwasher, which work great until a few months ago. The new one, which we have been using for about two weeks, is definitely much quieter, which is nice since we have an open kitchen/living area plan. It didn't dry the dishes at all until I put the rinsing agent in, and voila! Drys beautifully, even on the Eco setting. It takes longer than the old machine to operate because of the new efficiency standards, but there is a one-hour setting that is great when you need it. We usually run our dishwasher before we go to bed, so I don't mind the long cycle. This dishwasher probably has a lot of bells and whistles I won't use, but I really wanted the nylon coated rack instead of the vinyl. Supposedly it lasts longer. That was the first thing to go on our old dishwasher and rust stains started appearing on my plates! The bottom rack on the new machine is also a lot lower, which means a lot more room for large pots and pans! The $49 delivery, haul-away, and installation price can't be beat! The guys were very friendly and professional, and the installation was pretty quick.

Quality control is apparently lacking at the factory.
1 Star Review   By Randy on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012   

During its third use, the lower washer arm fell off and melted itself to the dryer heating element in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Right now, I'm waiting for Whirlpool warranty repair service person, who won't be here until 5 days from now. While it was working, it left the interior of the tub with a lot of moisture on the walls of the tub and the dishes not very dry. It washes the dishes OK, but I've had two Whirlpool dishwashers before that did a better job.

Glad I purchased this unit.
4 Star Review   By RWri on Home Depot - Nov 18, 2012   

Replaced a DW that was smaller and less efficient with this unit about 3 weeks ago. What I really like is its functionality for everyday cleaning based on how I use dishes, etc. The dish racks for this unit handle larger plates, bowls and even wine glasses without tipping them completely sideways as with my former DW. Very quiet and cleans very well. Nothing negative to say so far. For the price, this unit exceeded my expectations. The installers were courteous and efficient, on time and professional.

Great for the Price!
5 Star Review   By LevyRat on Home Depot - Nov 9, 2012   

First, this is a lower priced model so you get what you pay for. With that said, I am very pleased. First, it is quiet compared to my old dishwasher, the first time I ran it, I wasn't sure it was on ..... not silent just quiet. It washes dishes OK for me, but I'm the type that rinses the dishes before they go into the dishwasher, if you like leaving dirty dishes out several days, I'm not sure this one would clean really dried on food. I like that it has several different choices on wash and dry cycles and especially the delay start. I think it is a good value for the price.

great purchase
5 Star Review   By ddd2000 on Home Depot - Sep 23, 2012   

I've had this dishwasher for a few weeks and I really like it. I love the nylon racks, and I love the silverware caddy in the door, which leaves more room inside. It is much quieter than my 13 yr. old dishwasher. It does take longer to run through the cycle than I was used too. I don't use the heat dry feature, so the dishes aren't completely dry when I open the door, but I just leave the door open a crack and let it air dry overnight. I haven't had any problems with dishes getting clean. The only negative that I've seen so far is the latch to open and close the door, I don't like that you just pull the door without pressing in any latches or handles. I'm very happy with my purchase, and the install from Home Depot.

Very happy with this dishwasher
5 Star Review   By lifl on Home Depot - Sep 15, 2012   

I bought this dishwasher about a month ago and had it installed by Homedepot. The installation when very smoothly with no issues. This dishwasher offers several different cycles including heavy, normal, eco(power saving) and overnight. It also offers 2 drying options. The eco dry doesn't dry very well, but the heated dry (which is recommended for regular use anyway) dries very well. The washer also has an option for high temperature wash and dry to sanitize dishes according to national standards. It also has a delay cycle of 2,4 or 8 hours so that you can set the dishwasher to perform during non-peak electricity hours. It is fairly quiet and washes very well. As a side note, you must use the recommended Rinse Aide (which is very inexpensive) in order to get good drying quality (at least that's what the book says). I have been using it and have no problems with drying nicely. Also, the dishwasher has a nice deep top rack so that you can actually put stemware and even plates on the top rack! The top rack also has some nice touches like plastic tines to hold small plastic lids and such in place so they don't fly all over the dishwasher while being washed. It also has an extra cup layer along the top side for small cups so that you can fit double the amount in that one row. I am very happy with my purchase for this price range. I shopped around for a long time at other companies and I found that HD was the most value when you add in installation and delivery (which was free).
