This dishwasher performs great- no need to pre-rinse dishes, everything comes out nice and clean. The only exception is baked on residue on cookie sheets or sometimes burned on residue in a frying pan... both of which I am not sure one can reasonably expect a dishwasher to get completely clean anyway. The four-hour delay button is fantastic! Even pauses the countdown to let you add more dishes when you open the door. Just push the now-blinking button to start the countdown again when finished. My only issue is the noise level, which I would classify as loud enough to be annoying; especially if you have a living space open to the kitchen, and are trying to watch television, for example. But simply use the four-hour delay button in the evening after dinner, and the dishwasher runs at night when everyone is upstairs in bed, problem solved! Just be warned about the noise if you prefer daytime washing or have a very open floor plan around the kitchen.

On the advice of an independent dealer, I purchased this model a little less than two months ago as a replacement for a 12-year-old dishwasher which I used to actually wash dishes that I had scraped and given a light rinse. When I first used the Whirlpool WDF310PAA, I used it the same way. After the one-hour cycle the dishes smelled and had visible food particles. Handwashing began! The second use, I scraped and lightly rinsed the dishes and put them on the two-hour "normal" cycle. The dishes didn't smell anymore, but food particles remained.. Now, I power spray rinse the dishes and make sure they're clean before I load them into the dishwasher to be rinsed and sanitized later. Needless to say, NO water is being saved.My dealer claimed he has the same model at home and it works fine. Come to find out, he has an older version which has THREE sprayers. One from the top of the washer, a second under the top rack, and a third under the bottom rack. Mine has TWO sprayer arms, one under each rack and aimed up only. No direct spray is aimed down, to the sides, or into the corners.Since I keep the setting on heated wash, I am confident that my dishes as well as any food I've left on them are sanitary. But, if you're looking for a dishwasher to WASH the dishes, keep looking.

I was unsure how this would be due to having a protest Bosch, but was pleasantly surprised ....I really like the space in the tub. Did a nice job cleaning. Quiet. However mind quit working after a weird clicking sound and never finished its cycle. I was let with a tub full, and waiting to get a replacement due to warranty. I'm thinking maybe mine was a Lemmon or not installed correctly!

I love my new dishwasher. It does a great job of washing dishes, and it is very quiet. I am overall very happy with my purchase.

I bought this appliance last year it's brand brew and is was not what I expected. He dishwasher does not work it doesn't wash. After I contacted whirlpool they sent a contractor and they left it "fully functional" ans after one usage the dishwasher still doesn't work. The contractor company has cancelled he appointment and to this day i still can't wash I'm really disappointed because I bought a prestigious brand.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Fine, not wonderful. Which is perfect.

This unit came with the house we bought, and it does everything it says it will, which we are very grateful for. But we can't say a whole lot more.I like that it has a separate water jet for the bottom and for the top drawers, so I know everything on the top is getting hit even if the bottom is completely full. And it adds a bit more space to the bottom without that hole in the center.Everything else is adequate, but not exciting. The unit isn't desperately pretty to look at. The silverware and cup racks don't have any covers or organizers to speak of. Kinda boring.My one complaint is when you run it it doesn't give a lot of feedback. The beeps are super quiet and it takes a while to hear if it's running or not. I have pressed the button, assumed it was running, and found out later it never started. Oops. But it WASHES DISHES quite well. And it's boring partly because it's quiet and just slips into the background--like a good appliance should. What more can you really ask for?
SO QUIET !
It has a large capacity...and best of all is super quiet !

5 person household and I found this machine to be too small. It will work if you do dishes twice a day. I find that the cups on the top level retain water and food residue.The instructions state that a rinse-aid is required for each load. I found it does not help.
