Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works great - but only for a year Bought the dishwasher new in May 2016; it worked great for a year until the circulation pump failed right before the July 4 weekend. Replaced the pump and motor assembly and had another year of clean dishes. It has been exactly 13 mo since replacement and the circulation pump fails again. I guess this is how Whirlpool and its suppliers make money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product Previous whirlpool owner.this model does not have as many short cycles of wash, and the other cycles take way too long. Do not like the rinse dispenser either. It doesnt hold the product in very well. Much happier with my previous model. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet I got this dishwasher over a year ago. It is very quiet & cleans well but it stays moist inside on the back panel which I have to wipe off, so I don't get mold. I don't use it daily so this moisture concerns me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from and so it starts!...(the repairs) When I think of whirlpool, i think of quality, reliability, the gold standard of what others strive to be....well i USED to think that after this weekend! Similar to the other recent postings, this dishwasher lasted just over a year and a half. I came home recently to a wet kitchen floor from a leaky dishwasher. I took out the bottom panel to find the lower insulation drenched in water. From the looks of it this has been an ongoing issue but finally has become severe to the point the insulation can no longer absorb anymore water and simply leaks out from underneath. From reading the other reviews it appears it may be from the gasket, but now i have to troubleshoot/replicate this before I waste money on a part that may or may not be it or better yet have someone come out. Mind you its still practically brand new, I use it maybe once a week so the fact that it probably only has about 75 washes and already leaking is absolutely absurd. I would expect this from a lower tier company/product not from Whirlpool and surely not at the price I originally paid for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleaning Purchased 6 months ago but I just had this installed two weeks ago. At first it wouldnt drain after a cycle. Standing water in the bottom. Then installer came back and corrected something, now its perfect. Fairly quiet but I can hear it in another room, yet not intrusive. Very good job of cleaning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Read most of the existing reviews and not suprised I bought my whirlpool WDT780SAEM1 late mid year 2016, started using in September of 2016. It worked fine for less than a year then started to leave soap in the bottom of the tub. Ran diagnostics and changed the control board which eliminated the noted errors "F7" "E1" and "F7" "E2", but it still leaves soap in the bottom of the tub. Dispenser open and tried various cycles. Recommend this product? Probably not.
