Has never worked!!

dhuffines 6/24/2019

This was already in our brand new home and I was excited about a new dishwasher, but it's been awful since day one. It's never cleaned our dishes. I've tested leaving just ONE item in there and no luck. We've tried different soaps, settings and even ran it empty thinking there was a clog, but still failing each time. This is a total joke! I've tried calling, but wait time was super long, I've tried looking up my registration, but the system can't find me. I seriously can't get anywhere with this busted dishwasher.

Decent Washer

walte178 5/14/2019

Only have had for over a week. But so far cleans the dishes well. But has not dried the dishes that well. Fair amount of water still on the dishes after the full cycle has been ran. Not a terrible issue though. Does ok and what it's supposed to.

Silence is Golden!

Happy, Happy 3/22/2019

I LOVE this dishwasher!!! My last one was loud, but this one is so quiet that I sometimes come in to double check to see if it's running. I'm also very pleased with its cleaning capability although I've always been an avid 'rinser'. I bought a Whirlpool frig at the same time I bought this and I've noticed that my water bill went down $10 a month which is a bonus. I have seen a few bad reviews regarding it's size and maybe it's a tad smaller than my last one, but overall; I haven't had any issues fitting the 'usual' items in and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Super quiet

gharris 1/17/2019

I love the look of this dishwasher, and the cycles are so quiet we often have to check if it is actually running! The only downside I've found so far is that if I don't unload it while the dishes are still hot, they condense & I need to dry them by hand. I am still working on the settings to work out how to get around this

I like the side loading silverware basket. Last model we had loaded silverware on the door which made it inconvenient with the bottom rack out.

limabeans 8/24/2018

This is not a high end product. This is a low level product you will be happier with the ones that cost a little more money. Trust me.

Worst best cleaning dishwasher

Upsetmama2 8/9/2018

This is the worst dishwasher I've ever had. One positive thing is that it cleans well. However, for a family of 4 it will NOT hold the dishes from dinner. Cutting boards, frying pans, anything taller than a dinner plate will not fit-it hits the water arm on the bottom of the top rack. There are too many spikes to hold dishes preventing juice glasses from sitting both between and over them. The racks are ridiculously small, and the utensil container does not hold anything other than silverware-no spatulas, wooden spoons, etc. the "perk" they say if the utensil caddy is you can move it around... but it's uselessly small. I load this dishwasher after dinner and cannot fill it because most things don't fit and have to run it half full AND hand wash a load. DO NOT PURCHASE if you are a family larger than 2 or if you cook.
