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.

Terrible! Broke in under 18 months, complete write-off
from Toronto, ON
Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:
The computer board failed in 18 months, the part alone is over $400, cost more to fix than replace. Never buy a Whirlpool again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Lake Mills,WI
We love our dishwasher. We moved into a first home and out of all the places we have lived before this is the first dishwasher that has worked right.
from corbin, KY
This came with our new trailer, I love it. We have had numerous dish washers and I think this is my favorite.
SO quiet! :)
from Brookhaven, GA
Love that this dishwasher is SO quiet. We dont have to worry about starting it if we are still gathering in the kitchen or if we want to go in the next room to watch TV (open floor plan, no walls). Easy to load, too

I have been in the house for 2 months and using the dishwasher- which is very quiet. There are times when we forget that it is on. It does great on dried on foods & greesy pans.
from San Antonio, TX
My new appliances SAVE me a lot of time! Now I can make more things inside and outside of home, that's excellent!!!
Good and bad
from Nashville, TN
This model cleans the dishes very well. However, the heated drying is awful. We have to towel dry all cups and bowls whether they are in the top or bottom rack. We have owned 2 other dishwashers before this one, and both of those actually dried the dishes.
With a toddler, we have a lot of dishes that need cleaning. The majority of them are cleaned very well with this dishwasher. We normally load dishes scrapped of excess food and perhaps a cursory rinse. If we overfill the utinsil caddy, some spoons or forks may end up with crusted food. Overall we are very pleased!
Best economical choice
from Bay City, MI
I needed to replace a broken dishwasher and chose this for the brand and price. It functions great, although I am disappointed that it does not have a rinse-only cycle and I would have chosen another style had I known that.
