The worst dishwasher ever!
Comments about Whirlpool WDT790SAYW Dishwasher:
I have had this dishwasher for 4 years and have hated from the beginning. Not only does it not clean the silverware properly (and yes I rinse everything) the silverware falls sideways in the caddy. I have had two leaks, the first a year ago ruined my floors and they needed replacing too. Now a year later and it is leaking I the same spot. Time to purchase another dishwasher. It won't be a Whirpool!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Ok but not 100% happy
from The Villages, Fl
This came with the home I purchased in The Villages, FL. It's ok. To me, doesn't do any better than the one I had at my old home that was installed 3-4 years ago. Did the job but not so great with non-presoaked bake ware. As long as I used Jet Dry glasses come out clean. Now the Whirlpool Gold frig. is worst than their dishwasher. I have had problems with that since day one and continuing as of the day.
Has not met our expectations!
from Bloomfield Hills, MI
We bought our Whirlpool dishwasher 2 1/2 years ago. About a month ago it suddenly stopped working. After the repairman made 3 trips over 4 weeks and $332 it's finally working. The repairman even asked if we wanted him to fix it or just buy a new one!!?? Sadly disappointed that a reputable appliance manufacturer can't build a dishwasher that lasts more than a couple of years. Our last dishwasher was a Maytag that lasted 15 years with never a repair, we only replaced it because it was white and we were replacing all of the other appliances in stainless steel. If this is how long Whirlpool products are expected to last, I'll never buy another one.
do not buy
from Mount Laurel, NJ
I purchased this in early spring 2014. This weekend my husband noticed a leak in the basement. We thought there was a leak in a pipe since we live in an older home. Nope. The dishwasher leaked and has soaked my subfloor beyond repair. Now I have to rip up the floor, get a repairman to find the leak...headache. Also, the silverware basket doesn't fit my silverware nor does my silverware come out clean.

From day one this dishwasher did not fry my dishes. The control panel design is awful. Half the buttons stopped workign after only 1 year. the waster pumped broke at two years, the repair person said this is the worst series and he has had to fix many of them. stay away from this product.
14 Months - Toast.
from New Hampshire
I bought it 14 months ago but it's been in storage 6 months. Reinstalled it in the same location 3 months ago. Two nights ago it sounds like the transmission has rocks in it. Checked everyplace inside I could fine. Trouble shooting guide was next to useless. Very quite and cleaned well when it worked. Silverware tray in the door - bad idea. Doesn't clean well. I'm glad I got it as a close-out price + GI discount. 12 mo warranty, 14 month life, 6 month working life. Add that up how you like. Me? JUNK.Features? Top buttons were easier than previous washer. Add a display for time remaining would be nice. The "Done" light should go out when you first open the door after it really finishes. Having it stay ON all the time makes it pretty useless.
Very quiet and cleans well

Been running the dishwasher for a couple of weeks and I am very satisfied. It is extremely quiet and does a great job cleaning the dishes.
