Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

So far so good.

BKidwell 7/29/2019

Bought this to replace an Electrolux that lasted a solid 2 years (sarcasm). So far so good. On install, handling both brands side by side, the Whirlpool was definitely better built. Its obviously made with better quality materials. My skepticism comes with the computers involved, as that's what put the final nail in the coffin on the Electrolux. The Whirlpool is not loud at all, and even on the light cycle is doing a good job according to my better half. I own other Whirlpool appliances, and we have always be happy with them.

Flimsy build quality and poor washing

Sebastien Semont 7/15/2019

Bought 2 weeks ago and returned it. The door is flimsy, the top drawer feels like it's gonna break each time you pull it and it doesn't clean as well as my previous dishwasher.

So quiet!

Creeky 5/12/2019

We just ran this dishwasher once as we have not moved into the new condo where it is installed. It seemed to work well - a little early to assess performance completely - but I will say that it is extremely quiet. This is a real plus, as this kitchen is a small one, in a small condo. If the past is any judge, our Whirlpool dishwasher (full size) at our current home is over 10 years old, and has given us faultless service. That's why we picked Whirlpool again!

Cleans great

Mtv55 5/1/2019

Had my dishwasher installed a few days ago. I usually don't put pans in,but gave it a try. The dishes and pans came out sparkly clean. I was very impressed. I would recommend this to anybody in the market for an 18" dishwasher.
