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!
Best investment does a great job very quite very easy to operate saves me washing up that's a bonus yes I am a husband , wife loves the load capacity also looks great in the kitchen just help makes life a joy and we only use a it every second or third day buy one u won't be disappointed
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.
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.

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...
Do not buy this dishwasher if you own wine glasses
While this machine washes and dries adequately (the latter marginal though), the lay out Is terrible. I cannot believe it got past initial factory quality control. The cutlery tray is completely unuseable as there is not nearly enough space. If you want to put even average size dinner plates then the top drawer needs to be on top setting and is then too high to wash wine glasses. I am not fussy (see my couple of other reviews) but I am very disappointed I bought this dish washer. I sincerely cannot believe how terrible it is.

We are happy with the overall running of the machine however the layout is terrible. Don't waste your money in upgrading to get the cutlery tray as when you use that you can't even fit a normal size glass in it -- (forget about wine glasses, no chance). When the middle tray is on the lower setting (so the glasses can fit in), normal size plates stop the spray arms going around. The only option to stack the dishwasher is to get rid of the cutlery tray, which we paid over $100 more for. I would have thought that Westinghouse would have come up with a better layout seeing as they have been in business for so long. Not happy. Definitely won't be recommended this dishwasher.
So glad we purchased this dishwasher from the good guys. [salesman knew heaps about all dishwashers!
Love Westinghouse products and our 10 yrs old dishwasher needed replacing and after researching all other models under $1OOO we went with Westinghouse again.... thank goodness... fabulous dishwasher... takes loads of stuff and is so quiet whilst running. More than happy.... one thing.. fairy or cussons liquid tables are far superior to finish tablet supplied with dishwasher.. Always used finish but not any more. 6th March 2017... would like to let users know that after trying many of the options for wash I have found that always using the 15...min rinse cycle before going on to the time save cycle is giving me by far the best results... We have family staying at the moment and the dishwasher is being loaded fully and used every day... Fantastic results. Would recommend these two cycle to anyone...
Not Happy With Size
I have Just bought the WSF6608W I spent a little more and got the better of the 2 models because I thought the cutlery draw would be handy well DON"T waist your money. we have had to remove the cutlery draw at the top because if you want to fit any decent size glasses in the top it won't fit with the cutlery draw. So I am very disappointed with it. not a dishwasher for a big family that's for sure.
Questions & Answers
The program time does not match what the manual says. My ECO is showing 239 instead of 159 minutes and the Time Saver is 134 minutes instead of 90. Is there a way to fix this. I want to be able to dry the dishes.
no not as far as we know, sorry, welcome to the world of wet dishes and the use of a drying cloth at the end of cycle that we all now live in if you have one of these useless machines, sorry we cant help you .
The 239 is 2 hours 39 minutes ( equal to 159 minutes) and same deal for the 134 being 1 hr 34 minutes (equal-ish to the 9)
