Wanted to love this but...
Comments about Whirlpool 24" Built-In Dishwasher - White:
We replaced all of our appliances and we love everything else except this dishwasher. We chose this model because of the stainless steel tub but it seems to be one of the only features we actually like about it.It fits in the space that our old dishwasher fit in and yet it seems, capacity-wise, it is a good bit smaller. It is a tall tub dishwasher and yet that is irrelevant due to the loss of width and depth of the tub. We are running loads more often than was necessary prior to installation. The silverware basket is probably our biggest peeve. It is constantly falling apart. It doesn't fit well in the space it is made for and nothing secures it to the rack. It is cheaply made of light plastic and is an awful design feature.The racks are more annoying than anything. The bottom is always falling off of it's sliding grooves and does not slide smoothly out. It catches in a gap between the door and the bottom of the dishwasher. This knocks it off of the grooves, and requires you to manually place it back in place. May be a plus for some but we learned from our mistake that is was not... The drying cycle seems too hot (even with the heated dry option turned off) We have melted a couple items- one of them being, our dishwasher safe blender pitcher that is unable to fit on the top rack. The manual refers to an air-dry or energy-saving dry option but I don't believe there is a setting outside of keeping the heated dry option off. The dishwasher cleans well for the most part. Have had some issues with silverware not getting clean. On the plus side the buttons are self explanatory and running the dishwasher is very simple. I also like the lock feature, since we have a 2 year old that likes pressing buttons. And as I mentioned before, I like the stainless tub. It is easy to clean when needed and for us it seems to stay cleaner than the plastic tubbed dishwashers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Defaulted to this dishwasher due to space issues. Couldn't be happier...washes flawlessly on the normal setting, realitively quiet and super built. Concerned after reading some negative reviews, but have only been pleased. Very similar to the older well built Kitchen aid by Hobart machines.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Acceptable, not the best rack design.
By Larry in OK

This was the only dishwasher model I could find where the total depth (with door open) would fit in my kitchen. We had initially purchased another Whirlpool model where the total depth was about 1.5 -2 inches too long. That being said, I'm not that pleased with the rack design, or the overall interior size. There is definitely less dish storage capacity compared to the 1996 model Whirlpool dishwasher we replaced. Plus the silverware holder is on the lower rack instead of the dishwasher door. We prefer it to be inside the dishwasher door. The silverware holder is cheaply made. The handle broke (not thru abuse) on the 2nd use of our new dishwasher. It seems to be a sub-standard material (plastic) that's apt to break easily. Whirlpool said they would be sending us a replacement, which we hope to receive any day now. One other thing is the dishes don't seem to get totally dry. This is another bad comparison to our previous Whirlpool dishwasher. On the good side, the dishwasher runs very quiet.

I bought this dishwasher about 1 month ago.I can not believe how great it cleans.Our old machine can not compete with this whirlpool.If your looking for a dishwasher that will super clean your dishes ,this is the one.It is also supper quiet and a very good price.

This dishwasher does s grew job getting the dishes clean. However, it really does not hold much. Another problem is the flatware holder. Many of the slots are way too small and the holder itself is always falling apart, as it comes in 3 pieces. I do love the stainless steel tub.

This came with the house we just built and love it. It is what I would have picked if we has had a choice of dishwashers. Super quiet which I love since out pitch opens to our family room
great features in small package
I needed a dishwasher that was shorter than the average height to fit under my counter top. I am so glad that I chose this one. It cleans the dishes so well and is super quite.
Good cleaning and quiet
The machine cleans well and is very quiet. I would give it 5 stars except for som design issues. The silverware rack is boxy and not sleek like the other Whirpool models. The top rack fold down racks are awkward and actually topple stemware unless braced up be a tall glass or heavy cup. I had to get this model because of height issues and I was disappointed that I could not put silver in the front, thus freeing room for larger pieces.
Good Dishwasher, Cleans well Simple to use

I am pleased with this dishwasher. It works well. With moving I have had several dishwashers replaced over the last 3 years and this is the first one I have been happy with. Front controls, but not so sensitive that I turn it off leaning on it. Straight forward controls, lots of action, dishes are coming out clean.
