Christine Ricart: The silverware rack is the WORST I have ever seen. Who wants to handle the dirty end of the silver on loading and the clean tip on unloading??? Does not clean well either. BAD design! And do not get me started on the bottom rack that I can only load 1/2 full due to crazy tine placement. Makes me long for my cheapie Fridgidaire!!
BroccoliBeefed: @Karin Gregor, I can't tell you how many times I just wanted to take that silverware basket and throw it on the patio when I had my Whirlpool dishwasher. Worst dishwasher I've ever had, and not just because of the stupid placement of the silverware basket
Karin Gregor: I hate the silverware basket! Has anyone else had trouble with it? So far that is my only complaint with it.
Rich Alexander: How is the noise level?
Floord ford: A small feature I would like to see on this washer is bottom rack fingers that fold down like the top rack. It would be ideal for washing things such as a saute pan that needs to be washed on its side.
Jeff Willener: Hi Angelo, I'm not an appliance technician but after doing some digging here are a few things for you to check according to the troubleshooting section of your manual. 1) Water is turned on. 2) Overfill float is able to move, release by pushing down. 3) Using the correct soap (i.e. no dish soap or hand soap)
Outside of the above I do not know. Keep digging and may have to call an appliance repair person.
janine boswell: Thanks for getting back to me. I looked at the model again in the store. The light does seem far back but I think that we'll be ok. I purchased it.
Jeff Willener: Hi everyone, it's been over a year now and I want to give a quick update. So far we haven't had any real issues. For a while the dishes would not dry very well. I called Whirlpool Support and they said try the drying aid first. Since starting the use of the aid that hasn't been a concern. Beyond the minor drying issue, the lights and buttons have not bothered us, cleaning has been great as long as we don't overfill the silverware caddy with unrinsed silverware. The front does get pretty dirty from closing and has to be wiped down frequently; also I have only had the clean the filters once. All-in-all, so far good buy.
janine boswell: Is it a problem viewing the indicator light that shines when cycle is complete? Some reviews say that that is a problem, they can't tell when dishwasher is done and have to keep opening the door to find out..please respond ASAP as I am purchasing today... Thanks!!!
Kontata10: whirlpool gold dishwasher.........heating coil has burned a small section of the interior wall so that the water is going into this hole.....can this be repaired or should I start shopping for another dishwasher.....H E L P
Jerome Davis: Try the high temperature wash option on normal wash.
Skeeter Verasammy-Parsons: I have this Dishwasher and it is 1 year and 5 day old today. Today it started to make a loud noise when I open the door. It sound like the springs. Any suggestions.
Jonny Cee: Have you found this dishwasher doesn't dry very well? There is still lots of water puddled even on heat dry.
BroccoliBeefed: Whatever you do people, please don't buy this dishwasher or any dishwasher Whirlpool makes (Nutid, Renlig, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air, Whirlpool, Estate, Amana, Kenmore)
1. Rack wheels will disintegrate and fall off
2. Silverware rack in door is the dumbest thing. You'll hate it
3. Within 2 years or so it will start redepositing food debris on dishes. (Sani-Rinse just bakes that stuff on harder) :\
4. They don't last. Within 4 years, you'll want a new dishwasher. By this time it won't clean well
BroccoliBeefed: Some people have a lot of plastic dishware - not a good idea for dishwashers. They won't dry, and they have a tendency to flip over. Glass and ceramic work much better in dishwashers
Jerome Davis: I'm very disappointed with Whirlpool. They've done away with the hard food disposer models. My mmom has a Kenmore dishwashe, which is a rebranded Whirlpool dishwasher. It too has the filtration ssystem. I just normal and heat dry. Dishes come out clean. Heat dry is weak.
Jeff Willener: We generally pre-rinse and the filters after four months of use are still clean. Here is what manual says:
* 1 - 3 loads per week, scrape dishes only - twice per year, scrape and rinse - once per year.
* 4 - 7 loads per week, scrape dishes only - every 4 months, scrape and rinse - once per year.
* 8 - 12 loads per week, scrape dishes only - every 2 months, scrape and rinse - every 4 months.
Dave Garofalo: Thanks! Oh, one other thing, how often do you have to clean that filter at the bottom of the dishwasher?
Jeff Willener: Every now and then with items which don't weigh much, small tupperware for example. So generally no, but that could be how we load the dishwasher by placing heavier items on top of or against those lighter items. I've been using this now since January 2013 and I'm still quite pleased. It's quiet and still cleans very well.
Dave Garofalo: I have a problem with my current dishwasher where the cups flip over and fill with water--drives me crazy. Do you have a problem with cups flipping over?
