Whirlpool White Dishwasher, Model DU1055XTSQ

I purchased this dishwasher about 3 weeks ago from Best Buy, because my old dishwasher did a poor job of cleaning out my oily dishes.


I choose this model mainly because it was cheap and affordable. I tend to buy items that just do what I need them to do and don't include any expensive luxuries.

I like this dishwasher because it fits in with my plain old kitchen, and saves energy compared to my older dishwasher because it is Energy Star certified.

There is plenty of space to put my dishes inside, and it does a great job of cleaning out all the stains and sauces. This dishwasher is very quiet as well, if you were to compare it to my old one. I would definitely recommend this dishwasher to a friend.

There is also a very useful child protection key lock, so my children cannot accidentally open the dishwasher and stop the dish washing cycle.

The only disadvantage to buying this dishwasher is that the silverware drawer is quite small, but it is built right in to the dishwasher door. This actually gives me more room inside the tub for my dishes.

Also, this dishwasher takes less time to wash all my dishes when you compare it to my previous dishwasher.

Whirlpool DU 1055

by Melissa E
(Warm Beach, WA)

We purchased our dishwasher about 6 years ago, when we were doing a major kitchen remodel. Our old dishwasher had suffered from horrible rust stains from terrible well water. We were so excited to get rid of it!

We purchased it from Judd & Black, a local appliance dealer. At the time we were looking for a reasonable price and clean dishes.

We had done quite a bit of research through Consumer Reports, but had not been able to find the exact models that were recommended in their articles.
We knew we wanted a model with two spinners, a compartment for smaller items like lids, and it had to be black to match our other appliances.
We like this model very well.

It cleans the dishes adequately (although we usually pre-rinse - even though we know we shouldn't. Old habits die hard!)
One of the best features of this model is the delayed wash. You can set it to wash in 2, 4 or 6 hours. I love waking up to clean dishes, even though I never heard the dishwasher running! It is not a super quiet model, but I think it is the quietest in it's price-range.

It is very energy efficient, which we noticed on our power bills right away. We usually use the light wash cycle and forgo the hi temp wash & heated dry in an effort to reduce the cost per load of clean dishes. If we run it during waking hours, we open the door slightly at the end of the rinse cycle and that way the air flow dries the dishes.

For the price, this is a great dishwasher!

Whirlpool DU1055XTSQ Built-in Dishwasher

by James
(United States)

One of the deciding factors (though not really a vital one) in purchasing our new home was the appliances that would be included. Out of a washer, dryer, stove, refrigerator and dishwasher, the Whirlpool DU1055XTSQ Built-in Dishwasher is the best.

The noise level is quite minimal, and this dishwasher gets the job done rather quickly and thoroughly. There are a few different settings one can use, depending on what exactly you are cleaning in the dishwasher at the time.

Obviously, for those dishes with caked on food or grease they still may require a quick hand scrub – but that is too be expected.

This puts a sparkly shine back on the majority of your dishes, silverware and glasses. It is Energy Star compliant, which is a brand name that most people (myself included) have come to trust.

This of course does not disappoint. It stands about two feet tall and blends in perfectly with the counter setup in our mid-sized kitchen.

I’ve only had experience with one other dishwasher in the past, and that was an old model so I can’t really compare and contrast them too well, only to say that obviously this Whirlpool is the better of the two appliances.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner 1 Model DU1055XT502 purchased 2008

This dishwasher was purchased in 2008, but very little use due to our work rotation schedule. About 6 months ago, the dishwasher was noisy.

This past month it stopped washing. Apparently the motor needs replacing. Cost of motor replacement and installation would be about the same as buying a new appliance. So much for Whirlpool. No stars from us for whirlpool...

Whirlpoool DU1055XTVQ built-in Dishwasher

Whirlpool 24-inch built-in dishwasher, Energy Star,model: DU1055XTVQ It is somewhat small, and I will probably need to upgrade it soon for our growing family. Previously though, this dishwasher was a dream!

It cleaned everything, the capacity was somewhat small, but we didn't really need much more than that! At one point, though, it began leaking! I was worried! thankfully though, the warranty covered that and we were able to able to exchange it for a new one, apparently there was a "run" that had this issue but the company was very compliant and dealt with this issue very well!

The noise that this dishwasher makes is... moderate, we run it when were not at home though, so its not too bad. There is also an option to lock the buttons, we haven’t really used this, but I’m sure it will come in handy in the near future! T

he Racks are also adjustable, so that is great for when we want to wash our pots and pans! The silverware rack is also located on the door, which I find to be more convenient for me! It takes up less room, allowing us to load it up with more dishes.

Our dishes have always come out clean, this is probably aided by the spinning jets, and loads of our cascade duo dishwashing packs.

Pros
- would be the adjustable racks
- the price, it is a great value dishwasher!

Cons
- would be the size,
- the noise level
- I would give this dishwasher

Whirlpool DU1055XTSQ: Don't buy this machine.


(Minnesota)

I spoke with the manufacturer this week who will do nothing about the damage this machine has done to my dishes. Plates and bowls have slowly gotten chipped around the edges since we installed this machine. They say no replacement rack with softer pegs is available, it's a low-end machine and it's my tough luck.

Stay away from Whirlpool, they don't support their equipment once they've got your money. Pass the word.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner 1 DU1055XTS03

by Jessica
(Mansfield OH)

As a mothers day present I finally got a working dishwasher.

The whirlpool quiet partner 1 (DU1055XTS03) in the "silver mist" color. It was bought at Lowe's in May of 2008. I bought this one because it looked great, a stainless steel look without the price or effort to keep it looking clean.

The price was reasonable. I also liked the size. The lower rack is huge so that even a cookie sheet or large pot can be places inside without hitting.

I also love the delay feature. I load the dishwasher right after supper but usually we are getting the kids baths, taking showers, and doing laundry so we can't run the dish washer.

This way I can set the delay for 2,4, or 6 hours to start in the middle of the night. It really is quite too. We never hear it running in the middle of the night.

Washes great, dishes always come out clean (even if the kids didn't scrap and rinse very well). I would and have recommended this dishwasher to others.

Hook up didn't take my husband long at all either so it is pretty straight forward and simple. It did take me awhile to figure out the best way to load the dishwasher, so that everything my large family dirties could fit each day.

The example or how to load the dishwasher inside the manual wasn't very helpful. How many families have 12 coffee cups and saucers dirty at a time? That is my only complaint about the dishwasher.
