We replaced a Frigidaire dishwasher with this Whirlpool. Our previous house had a Whirlpool and we loved it. This house came with the Frigidaire and we hated it. We love the Whirlpool Gold Series because it cleans really well and is very silent. In fact, when my mom was recently visiting, we were in the kitchen and she commented that she could not even hear our dishwasher.
I've included a video showing a baked on casserole and how it came out after the cycle. I put it on the pots and pans cycle and high temperature heat. The dish came out great and you can barely hear the dishwasher running in the video.
I like that the dishwasher has a delay setting. It also will grind up food particles. The dishwasher has 4 cycles - pots and pans; normal; light; rinse only. You can also choose High Temp wash; Sani Rinse; and Heated dry. I really like the Sani rinse and we use this if anyone in the house has been sick.
The Frigidaire that we replaced did not dry the dishes. This one does, but only when we use Jet Dry or another rinsing agent. If we don't use a rinse agent, the dishes will be mostly dry, but the tops of the glasses will be wet. If we use the High Temp wash option, the dishes are very dry.
