This dishwasher replaced my 10 yr. old broken one (different manufacturer). Since I recently bought a new Whirlpool microwave that I'm happy with, I went to Whirlpool for my dishwasher replacement. This washer cleans everything thoroughly without rinsing, just scraping. My shiny black plates, bowls and cups come out gleaming with no grunge or waterspotting. It is at least as quiet as my old one, if not even more quiet. The racks in this one allow for really tall items, much more so than my old one. The cutlery basket can go on the side or the front of the bottom rack, or really anywhere you want to put it. At first I thought it was smaller than my old one, but it is actually bigger with smaller sections. I also thought I would miss the options that a front dial gave me, but I like the push-buttons and they look nicer than a dial. After washing the dishes (and drying) a light goes on in the front saying "Clean," and it stays on till the door is opened and closed again. The bottom filter is easy to take out and clean. I'm very pleased with this dishwasher.

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.

works well but small
Works well. No issues with cleaning. But a tad bit small.
This product is exactly what I was looking for.

from Austin Texas
Didn't get to pick it out. Would have wanted upgrade
simple to use which I wanted. It doesn't clean well
from North Olmsted, OH
I'm disappointed I didn't spend more considering all I went through to get this item. It does not clean well even on the heavy cleaning. The glassess need to be recleaned. Some dishes and the silverware also. I liked the style and ease of use without a lot of extra things I don't need.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was told this would be louder than my old Boch washer I replaced with this whirlpool...its not loud at all it washes great and easy to use I was sort of leary about getting a plastic inside but have had no problems I don't know what the big deal was!

from El Paso
I love my dishwasher! The only thing is it melted a sippie cup when on the hot mode but it works great. Love that is has the energy safe but it also gives you the option to wash in an hour time.
Love the space inside
from Hartford City, in
I can put 9 x 13 pans in without having to lean them over. I can put tall items in the dishwasher. It is great. Wish I had one years ago!
