Image Feature

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

TotalCoverage Spray Arm

Cleans with twice the jets 1 for more coverage. A smarter sequence of spray patterns from multiple nozzles hits dishes throughout the cycle.

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.

Tap Touch Controls Clean these controls as easily as you use them.

No One Has Fewer Repairs 20 Years in a Row For over 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.

Sani Rinse Option Sanitizes dishes by eliminating 99.99% of food and bacteria.

Stainless Steel Tub Promotes drying by retaining heat from wash and rinse cycles. Plus, it cools faster than the dishes so moisture can condense on the interior walls and not the dishes.

Fingerprint-Resistant Hide fingerprints and smudges with steel that easily wipes clean. Available in Black Stainless, Sunset Bronze, and Stainless Steel colors.

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.

High Temperature Wash Option Gives items like baby bottles, glassware or dishes a more thorough clean.

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.

Cycle Status Indicator The full lit display glows for wash, drain, drying, sanitized and clean along with the time in hours and minutes so there's no need to guess when your dishes will be ready.

Delivery is for standard common carrier "curbside" delivery. "Curbside Delivery" includes delivery to the curb in front of your home.It does not typically include moving the item into your home, garage, or other location.The carrier will call to schedule a delivery appointment.A signature is required at the time of delivery.Please include a daytime phone number with your shipping information.Delivery locations that are extraordinary (such as an island or mountain top or extreme rural areas) may create additional delivery charges, one of our sales agents will be in touch to review your delivery options.

When delivery occurs please personally inspect your merchandise before signing for the product.Look for things such as holes in the box or any other type of damage to the packaging.If the packaging looks questionable do not sign for the item(s)!If you feel the damage is something you can live with- Please note all damage on the bill of lading when you sign for it.Do not let anyone tell you that you must sign for the item. You do not have to sign for it if you feel the item is questionable.If you do decide to refuse the item, make specific notes that describe the damage in detail and simply call us for a refund or reshipment.Please understand if you sign, you are stating that everything looks great and you will not be able to claim any damage caused by the delivery company.

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.

Great Dishwasher

NB 10/3/2017

Looks great, runs great. Only reason for a 4/5 is because the dishes stay pretty wet after the cycle is over. We have to leave the door open to let it air dry out. Otherwise it has been an upgrade over our previous dishwasher.

Bekah 10/3/2017

We purchased this a little over a month ago and we love how well it cleans our dishes. Having a third spray arm up on the top is a great addition. Only issue is that the utensils don't always come out perfectly clean when you leave them on the door.

Clean lines, powerhouse washer

Leah C. 10/2/2017

I purchased this dishwasher 3 weeks ago and love it so far. I really like the different settings available. The one hour setting is great when I'm cooking a big meal and have company over. The delay setting is nice too. It is super quiet!! It has good height clearance as well. I'm able to wash larger dishes that would not fit in my old dishwasher. The utensil holder can also sit in the door or on the side of the bottom rack. Very well thought out design. I can only hope it lasts as long as the 30-year-old whirlpool dishwasher it replaced!

LAEWRY 10/2/2017

I love the style of this dishwasher! No only is it sharp but also very efficient! Stores alot and love that the utensils basket is on the door so you're able to fit more. Another great feature is that it doesn't have a bar handle for kids to hang on! Plus it washes and dries the first time! I can't say enough!

Brian 9/27/2017

I've had this for about a month, the machine is super quiet, cleans well and I find it dries the dishes which I was worried about. The only drawback I see is the silverware holder is full before the rest of the dishwasher. Since the silver wear basket can go other places I am going to see about getting a 2nd one and use two.

Lisa 9/26/2017

It is Wonderful

Pammy Pooh 9/26/2017

We have done several washes with our new Whirlpool Dishwasher. It took some getting used to how low the door needs to go but that is because it is a big dishwasher yet it fit in the spot where our old one came out of. It has a stainless steel tub and it is SO QUIET, I would not know it was on except for the blue light telling us it is washing. We wanted the top control and at first I was concerned I would keep pushing the buttons when I close it but the lights go on and you have a button over on the side that you press to cancel all the lights. Plus, you must push the start button anytime you open the washer even to put a dish in while it is washing, so you won't accidentally make it go on. It recommends pods for detergent and they are a lot simpler than powder detergent. I am extremely pleased with this dishwasher.

Ellen 9/22/2017

I bought this 2 weeks ago and it is not as good as I expected. If you use the preset spots on the utensil holder, you can not fit serving pieces. If you take the slot holder out, utensils easily fall out of the bin when the top is open. Also, I expected the drying cycle to completely dry the items, but the inside of the dishwasher is still wet.
