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.

from Edmonton, Alberta
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
My first dishwasher in years
from Bridger, Mt.
Since I live alone, I haven't used it that much. But I love what it does. Can't wait for my first family dinner to really make use of it.
By The Six Craks
I've been using the brand new refrigator for six weeks now. I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT , I LOVE IT. The stainless steel exterior is sooo easy to keep clean and it looks fantastic. The freezer on the bottom has easy access to everything and dito to the refrig section.
Obviously a budget buy, but same price as the 13 yr. old DW I was replacing.It gets dishes clean but doesn't seem to hold as much as my old machine. Has a 4hr delay wash cycle, but if we use it, the dishes are never fully dry. For fully dry dishes, I start it before bed and don't open it until dinner time the next day. Still condensation inside machine, dishes are mostly dry but sometimes, some are still damp. I don't think it's too much to ask for clean and dry dishes without having to jump thru hoops...
new home new dishwasher
from Winnsboro, TX, United States
Although at first this dishwasher seemed to be perfect, it seems to not be. It takes forever to go through the wash cycle and dies not clean the dishes very well. I have to wash them before I put them in.
