Product Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is simple to use and very quiet. After using this product for several months, I am very impressed with the sleek looks and user friendly features of this dishwasher. Very simple to use and surprisingly quiet. 9/27/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Portable Dishwisher Good product, except smaller than the older ones in the tub size. I really like new feature about the door not opening full unless you have the bottom tray out. Saves on the skinned shins. It takes a bit longer to do the dishes but you do have options on degrees of length. I find it is a great product and good service for warranty. 9/30/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product exceeds our expectations. Product is easy to use, does a good cleaning job, and keeps my hands out of the dishwater. We have since bought a dryer and feel the same way about it. We have used many Whirlpool appliances and have been well satisfied. 12/30/12
Rated 3 out of 5 by Make sure you wash your dishes before you wash your dishes I sell appliances for a living, and was replacing a 12 yr old Maytag portable. The Maytag did a great job, I was totally satisfied with it's performance and longevity.I have no choice but to have a portable, I would much prefer a built in. Having said that, the pool of models available is slim. I chose the Whirlpool because we floor it at my store. I was not thrilled with the fact that there is no spray arm in the top of the tub as the Maytag had, and my concerns were proven true. This thing does a lousy job on the top rack, leaving deposits on the indentations of cups, etc. I washed a greasy pan ( normal grease nothing extraordinary) and when the cycle was done, everything especially the dishes in the top were greasy. I had to run the cycle again, this time on Pots & Pans cycle to get everything clean. Most manufacturers boast about and advise against washing or rinsing dishes before placing in the dishwasher, with this Whirlpool, it is a necessity. The dishwasher does a lousy job on anything with any amount of dried foodstuffs. Again based on performance of my old Maytag, dishes with dried on food or partially dry, came clean all the time. I've found that my breakfast oatmeal dishes always have to be hand washed after a cycle in this machine. So, what's the point? The options I had were Maytag, Whirlpool and GE. I'm thinking now I may have been better off with a GE. If you like washing dishes before washing dishes, if you never cook anything greasy, then this machine is for you. Needless to say, I won't be recommending this machine to customers. 8/6/12
