Dishwasher: Includes DELIVERY. For HAUL AWAY to be performed, you must uninstall the existing dishwasher as the delivery teams do not uninstall dishwashers. Whirlpool dishwasher INSTALLATION varies by state or local area. Our delivery teams are not licensed plumbers and due to state and local laws in some areas, we cannot offer Whirlpool dishwasher installation. Installation not available in WA, OR, ID, MA, ME, RI, MS, and OK. Check for your zip code in the Dishwasher Install Zip Codes PDF in Manuals, Information & Guides section. Finding your zip code does not guarantee installation since limitations do apply and can vary based upon your home.

Decibel Level (dBA): 55
Very quiet is under 44 dBA.

Thanks for sharing. In addition to basic hookups and delivery, it also includes haul away in most areas.

This product has a rating of 79 out of 100, according to ConsumerReports.org.

Here is the Ratings Scorecard:
  • Washing: Excellent
  • Drying: Excellent
  • Energy use: Excellent
  • Noise: Good
In terms of brand reliability, Whirlpool is the second least repair-prone dishwasher (that's a good thing). ConsumerReports.org states, "Samsung is the most repair-prone brand of dishwasher. Bosch is among the more reliable brands of dishwashers. GE and Frigidaire are more repair-prone than Bosch, Whirlpool and Miele. Due to estimated failure rates, Samsung cannot be recommended by Consumer Reports at this time. That's what we found when we asked 42,108 readers who purchased a new dishwasher between 2012 and 2016 about their experiences. Our statistical model estimates failure rates for two-year-old dishwashers not covered by a service contract. Differences of fewer than 5 percentage points aren't meaningful. Models within a brand may vary, and changes in design or manufacturer might affect future reliability. Still, choosing a brand with a good reliability estimate can improve your odds of getting a dependable model."


I hope this helps,
Tofu Vic

Yes, it includes haul away, at least in most areas. The page states, "Delivery, Basic Hook-Up and Haul Away Included in Limited Areas."

I hope this helps,

If you need a cheap dishwasher this is certainly a great option, but do remember that the "Stainless Steel" reference is only about the exterior finish - this model has a plastic interior tub, not stainless.

"Basic Hook-Up" ...does that mean that if my kitchen doesn't currently have a dishwasher.....they would find a space for it and install it...i'm thinking not..

It also states that the delivery team does not uninstall. Does this mean I have to uninstall the existing one?

Actually the plastic tub is preferred for some of us who have crappy well water full of iron. Yes, I have softeners and various filters out the wazoo but the iron still eventually wins out over metal, even stainless.

You seriously thought they might actually do carpentry, plumbing or electrical work for free in order to install a dishwasher? Wow, if that was the case, I could have saved tens of thousands on my kitchen remodel just by buying a dishwasher. laugh out loud
