Whirlpool dishwashers improved dramatically about 20 years ago or so, when Whirlpool bought out the Kitchen Aid dishwasher brand. Whirlpool took the very best parts of what was up until then the best built dishwasher in the universe and incorporated it into their own design allowing the average consumer to also be able to purchase a great dishwasher at a reasonable price. Slam dunk!
One of the problems that had plagued the dishwasher manufactures was actual dish loading space. Since the outside dimensions of the dishwasher was fixed according to the 24″ opening of the cabinet width and 34 1/2″ counter top height it was hard for manufacturers to offer many options for capacity. These dishwashers were also major energy hogs because they used a large single 1/2 horsepower motor. Along came the Europeans, who introduced a tall tub dishwasher utilizing two much smaller 1/5 HP motors in place of the single motor allowing the actual wash tub to be enlarged downward, providing a gain of about 4″ in extra loading space! Whirlpool dishwashers, along with every other major brand followed suit and began offering their own version of the tall tub. These tall tub dishwashers also have another distinct advantage over their predecessors. The new design was much quieter than the old 1/2 HP motors, which addressed one of the consist concerns of most customers in looking for a quieter dishwasher. Viola!
