Sensor Cycle
From baked-on casserole dishes to drinking glasses, the Sensor cycle has you covered.

It cleans tough soils 35% better 2 while using just the right amount of time, energy and water, helping you have more time to do what you love.

Fully Integrated Electronic Controls
Add a modern accent to your kitchen. The control panel is hidden away to provide a sleek exterior while preventing unwanted cycle changes or accidental operation.

AnyWare Plus Silverware Basket
Our improved AnyWare Plus silverware basket now holds up to 12 more pieces of silverware for maximum flexibility and is designed to clean better. Place the silverware basket in the bottom rack, on the front of the rack, or use it in the door for 100% usable rack space. Its improved design also allows you to access small silverware and easily place the basket on the counter for unloading.

Resource - Efficient Wash System
This dishwasher's resource-efficient wash system cleans a full load of dishes using nearly 1/2 the water and energy 6 . Whirlpool Brand's improved motor and wash system optimizes cleaning for better cleaning results versus the previous wash system and provides our quietest line of dishwashers ever.

Adjustable Upper Rack
Our Adjustable upper rack can be pulled in and out to change its location or removed completely to better fit tall or odd-shaped items, like bowls, pots and pitchers in either rack.

No One Has Fewer Repairs 17 Years In A Row

Overnight Cycle
The Overnight cycle quietly soaks your dishes with an extended prewash and then runs a Heavy Wash cycle to clean tough soils. This industry-exclusive, 7-hour cycle optimizes water efficiency, without using more energy or disrupting household activities.

Top Rack Wash Option
With this specialized option, you don't have to wait for a full load to wash a few items. The Top Rack Wash option saves you time and energy by washing dishes in the top rack. Now breakfast bowls and coffee cups don't need to sit in the sink until after lunch or dinner.

Light Item Clips
Light item clips secure lightweight items during the wash cycle and help prevent items from falling out of the basket. They also stop cups and other small containers from flipping over and filling with water.

Tall Tub Design
This model's Tall Tub design allows you to load tall and odd-shaped items in both racks. An additional 3" of interior space compared to standard tub models makes room for extra-large items in the lower rack and plates or sports bottles in the upper rack.

Triple Filtration System
Resource efficient dishwashers feature a triple filtration system to remove food particles and other soils. This highly effective filtration system helps the wash system provide outstanding cleaning while using less water and energy.

Auto Soil Sensor
The Auto soil sensor optimizes every cycle for reliable cleaning results. This sensor measures water clarity to determine how dirty dishes are, then adjusts the cycle accordingly. This sensor measures the soils in the water and will add extra water and even temperature to ensure clean dishes. It automatically recalibrates the loadafter every 250 wash cycles for maximum performance.

NSF Certified Sani Rinse Option

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't clean baked on food well Bought this unit to replace a 12 year old unit of another brand, only because the interior of the new "other brand" was smaller. Bad move. Should have bought the "other brand" again. Our old one was super quiet and cleaned ANYTHING, even baked on, dry food in about an hour and a half. The Whirlpool takes forever to complete a HD wash cycle, on high heat and there is still food on some of the dishes when done, even after pre-rinsing in the sink, which we never had to do with our old unit. The Whirlpool is only two months old and squeaks randomly throughout the wash cycle. Stay away from this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher - worth every penny! We have been using this dishwasher for over a month now and are very happy with our purchase. It cleans everything so well and doesn't require a rinse beforehand even for very dirty and baked stains. The dishwasher also looks great and I love that that buttons are located on the inside leaving a very clean looking stainless steel plate showing on the outside. While it could be quieter, it has a neat "nighttime" cycle that we use which takes 8 hours but is supposed to use less water and energy than their traditional cycles. All in all I am very happy and would recommend this product to friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Elegant design The design and energy savings sold me on this dishwasher, but the silverware basket is too small. It fills before the rest of the dishwasher so too much gets crammed into it, which means silver doesn't get clean. Also, the brackets holding the rack for the glasses stick out into the space for them, which means you can't line up glasses or coffee cups because there are bulges halfway down the row on each side. Wish the cleaning was a bit better -- I put in a lasagna pan last night, and while it came out mostly clean, the pan is now soaking in my sink, which I had hoped would not be necessary.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dishes come out with tiny food particles on them, not clean This is the only dishwisher to choose from because it fit our opening ( down to 23 1/2 inches) under our kitchen cabinet. Has no means of grinding up food particles. The silverware tray prevents the silverware from getting totally clean, I guess I'm not sure as to how you place the silverware into the basket to get them clean, there is still food particles on them. This machine is slow in the process of washing dishes. I guess all in all, I would rate this machine average at best. The only thing it's got going for it is, it's quite. I would dddefinately not recommend this machine to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliability; Reliability; Reliability; Reliability: Whirlpoo My wife and I purchased this Whirlpool dishwasher to replace our 23 year old Whirlpool dishwasher. We have never repaired the old one and that was our testimony in sticking to the Whirlpool brand. We installed it ourselves and it is working perfectly. The appliance is not noisy and after all it does a good job cleaning the dirty dishes. The design matched our refrigerator perfectly. The packaged features are excellent and we loved the stainless steel interior. This is a great appliance and after all it is not going to fly. Our Whirlpool experience is hard to beat by any other manufacturer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quiet. Average performance and usage. On the plus side the unit is quiet. On the negative, todays units are slightly smaller than older units. Of course cycle times are much longer due to energy requirements and water consumption. Silverware basket sits out of the way but our flatware is wider and is accommodated by only one row of holes along the back row or the two opening in its center. Dishes do not always come out clean so it's necessary to pre-rinse most. We had an issue with the handle not being able to tighten it firmly. The technician ordered new parts, attempted to correct the situation at his shop and then assemble it on our new unit. He apologized that he did all he could do and that this is a design/manufacturing issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Just Can't Overlook the Big Flaw of this Dishwasher! My husband and I have owned probably 8-10 dishwashers in our lifetime so we had expectations for our new Whirlpool Gold Series. But, no matter what we do, we still have dripping wet dishes. We finally read online and figured out it is because this dishwasher does not have a blower to assist in the drying. So even with the rinse agent Whirlpool recommends, you will have to "towel dry" a lot of your dishes! I'm 64 years old and to me, this is definitely backing up! If it was not such a major pain for my husband to uninstall this machine and return it, we would choose a different dishwasher.
