Very easy to operate. Whisper quiet and a perfect clean everytime. Couldn't be happier with this product! The price was fair and the grease removal properties are second to none compared with my last unit. Easy on the water which in my book is also a big bonus two thumbs up!

Works great for 6 months; and then suddenly flooded my kitchen & living room!
Cleans pretty well! Capacity is great, with big space inside. Two big racks with another small tray for chopsticks, spatulas, cutleries, etc.
Doesn't dry well unless I manually open it to release all the steam immediately after it finished a cycle with 'dry'. But anyway this is my first dishwasher and I guess all dishwashers work like that. I mean, otherwise, where can all the steam go, right? They'll have to condense sooner or later, if not let released.
THE PROBLEM IS, after using it for 6 months with not a single problem, it SUDDENLY F...LOODED my kitchen & living room on last Saturday evening. Luckily I was in the living room when it happened, and started mopping water maybe only 10 minutes after the flooding. After cleaning up the mess, I disconnected hoses & power and took it out. To my surprise, the drain hose got a few very small holes on it! That's some terrible quality hose! How can a dishwasher part from such a well established company just last 6 months!? It's unacceptable! More disappointed is that I called their support this afternoon and they told me I might be charged for the repair! It is still within warranty! What sense does it make that I'll need to pay for the repair???
Quality construction in an easy to use machine. The "Time Save" cycle gives a great wash in well under an hour. This machine has a good range of functions and is very stylish addition to our kitchen. It is much quieter than our previous dishwasher, which is important as we are both light sleepers. Very happy with it.
The Perfect Wash
My dishes all come out sparkling clean and dry. It is very quiet and has quite a few programs to choose from, Time wise and eco wise. It also has a top tray for cutlery which you can take out if you want but I leave mine in as it does a fantastic job on it (no marks). It has two other trays so you have plenty of room for pots, pans, glasses and dishes. This is absolutely the best. Had 4 dishwashers before but this is the best by far I have had. You can also change the trays by moving the adjustments in the tray. Stainless steel no problem.

Love the space!
This is a great looking unit, that would work for any modern home. Very easy to use, and fits most dishware, from posts and pans, to all sizes of plates. Love that this also has a tray for cutlery, and upgrade to the previous model. It is also a quite running unit.
This does a great job - we've used it nearly every day since we got it and we've have never had any issues. Cleans cutlery perfectly.
I've never even noticed it making a noise but there's usually a fair bit going on round our place - its definitely not intrusive.
The stainless steel front stays looking nice - doesn't seem to mark like some do.
Adjustable shelf is great as we use larger plates for entertaining and our last dishwasher didn't fit them. We can fit large plates down the bottom and still fit tall stemmed wine glasses up the top.
Off to a good start!
I've replaced a noisy Blanco after deliberating whether to repair or go new. After a little research, I went with this unit as it seemed like a good deal.
First wash and I've noticed a significant difference - it's super quiet. Plenty of room with the flexibility of using the top cutlery drawer and easily adjustable second drawer. A good customer experience so far.
Good dishwasher except for one thing.
The dishwasher works well and cleans and drys to an acceptable standard. Sometimes it is a little noisy but that is not our major issue and it is mostly to do with what is being washed like pots etc. The main reason we brought this was the extra shelf for the cutlery. However we have found that we can not fit our plates and glasses in at the same time with the cutlery shelf in. The centre shelf is adjustable but it only has 2 settings. On the bottom one the washer arm hits the plates which are not overly large, on the top setting our glasses won't fit under the cutlery shelf. This is only by a small amount and could of been alleviated by a centre setting. We have removed the cutlery tray and gone back to using a basket.
Perfect dishwasher for large family
Washes really good no rinsing dishes required and dries everything well. Has a 3 drawers and love that i have more space for larger items now due to no cutlery basket... adjustable middle shelf has been great to... all in all its a great dishwasher for the price. 5 stars plus
***UPDATE*** now February 2019 and dishwasher is still running like a dream.
great dishwasher for the price,very happy
Had the Westinghouse[white] for 2 weeks now and very happy with its performance.I have rated this dishwasher with 4 stars and not 5, only because I rinse dishes well before putting in so cannot say if it does a good job if dishes are dirty, overall dishes are sparkly clean and very dry after auto cycle,50/60dgr which runs for 2hrs.I always use +rinse and +dry as I am fussy and dishes are always great.Only some plastics don"t dry properly but am aware of this as sites say that some don"t dry well.This dishwasher is quiet and cannot hear from nex...t room,it is quiet running and isn't loud like our washer..I love that it does long washes and usually put on after 9pm as cheaper to wash and use on Eco wash as is a bit cheaper for us and this cycle runs for nearly 3hrs..We have not used cutlery tray at top because plates are large and need to move top tray up to fit dishes in but this is not a problem as use bottom cutlery holder and this is enough. Do love idea of top tray and will use for smaller crockery or toys etc in future. Love how you can move drawers up and down to create room and having 3 drawers is a bonus.Metal tray at bottom and filter is easy to clean out as well,I will use ACTIVE 3 to wash dishwasher and pipes maybe once every 6 to 8 weeks because I rinse dishes. Have not used 30min cycle but read it does not dry dishes, will test this out sometime.We use ACTIVE 1 powder and ACTIVE 2 rinse aid which you fill dispenser right up and light goes off. Apparently you get 160 rinse out of this bottle and paid only 12.50 for both products so should last a long time. I did use the tablet and rinse aid that came with the machine but made no difference to the machine performance.Maybe the tablet and aid does a better job if your dishes are dirty.ACTIVE is recommended by F&P and so much cheaper and because I rinse well I do not need to buy expensive tablets etc.,I feel....We recommend this product as the design is great and it does a great job washing and drying and for the value it is overall good. If it only lasts 7years we have got our moneys worth and Westinghouse I am sure will have a better design and model and better energy rating out by then which will keep us up to date with savings on power.OVERALL LOVE THIS PRODUCT.....THANKS WESTINGHOUSE..Just to mention we had this installed in a 1940s house and cost 500 to install.Because of old kitchen it sticks out to meet stove but does not get in the way on our work-space. Looks fine.
Be wary of comments about Westinghouse / Electrolux Dishwashers (Other Install Problems)
There are a lot of comments on this particular forum about a certain brand. They are usually from users with only one post. Also, there are complaints about Westinghouse / Electrolux not drying dishes. Not one model, but 4-5 models I have come across. I doubt there is a major design fault over such a wide range of dishwashers of one brand. Seems very strange, and they usually mention Bosch is the best. "Should have bought a Bosch". I have a snesking feeling some people are opening the dishwasher way too early for the dishes to steam dry as well.... Maybe we should all re-read our manuals. One last point. Dishwashers need the right power source, new homes have the correct power for the appliance. If the new dishwasher is installed incorrectly on a shared power circuit with an oven or other appliance, it may run for weeks, months, but will eventually begin to error out. Plus most people connect UP into the sink waste. This 500mm high kills dishwashers. As a small amount of dirty water can backwash into the internals of the dishwasher, eventually damaging internal components. New home plumb always plumb directly down to waste. So really, most of these complaints are due from dodgy installations or user errors.
Only had for 4 months and keep getting F2 Fault
Was working well quite happy then all of a sudden F2 fault block drainage had to empty the dishwasher out and check hose thank go my husband is a plumber and nothing no blockage now waiting for a service man not good enough Westinghouse only 4 months old - I had a Simpson lasted 15 years no problems at all
Very pleased with it and is very quiet
We love our new dishwasher and it is so quiet.
You have plenty if racks, and a cutlery top shelf, and a cutlery basket to use.
We bought it in July 2015 and have had no problems with it at all.
I would recommend Westinghouse for what you pay for it.

We wish we had bought a bosch!!!
We purchased from appliances online, great service although we had to pay $40 for Saturday service which was a surprise as the site says free delivery but it was late on Friday night so this may have been why. This machine was replacing a Bosch machine that was 10 years oldish. So the machine came and they took the old one and the packaging and I plumbed it in as it was a like for like swap in the plumbing terms.
The machine had a funny smell to it a bit like fish or stagnant water we guess that was from a test run at the factory but it was no...
Questions & Answers
My WSF6608 dishwasher has residual water left in bottom only had installed by new kitchen installers a few months and rarely used is this normal
Yes. You need to clean out the filter at the bottom. It’s a crap dishwasher and you need to rinse everything before putting it in to prevent this.
I have an F9 error coming up. I heard a pop sound and smell of smoke. Only 3 years old so not sure if it’s worth fixing or whether there is a recall on this model. How much to fix?
Contact the customer care team, see if they can help? F9 is a faulty divertor valve if that helps at all?
When you select a program can it be retained for use every time you turn it on?
I didn't know that you could do this but discovered that you can, it's on p8 of the instruction book. 1. Select the program that you want to select using the PROGRAM button. 2. Add suitable options (extra rinse etc) if you want any. 3. Press PROGRAM and DELAY buttons together and it will be saved. 4. When you want to use your favourite program press PROGRAM button for three seconds and it will select your favourite program. So now we know!
Thanks JulesFP, one question, where is the Delay button?
