We got this dishwasher a few weeks ago as our other one went belly up after 10 years. And one of the reasons I like this one is how quite it is, you hardly know it's running. I like how easy it is to set up wash cycles and the different cycles that are available.

We ordered a black-door Whirlpool dishwasher (WDF520PADB) from Sears, but a WDF520PADM was delivered instead. The difference is the color of the door. We decided to accept it & had it installed on 12/8/2016.

The stainless steel door needs constant cleaning because it gets water spattered from kitchen sink work. The runs can be washed off, but much care is needed. The black door, which we had on our previous washer, did not show such runs, needing only an occasional cleaning.

The new washer has a less-efficient set of baskets for holding pans, dishes, silverware & utensils.

This dishwasher heater does not dry everything as well as the old. Puddles of water remain wherever they can form. The silverware basket leaves water on the counter as it's emptied. The door has water that drains back into the washer as it it's closed. We are very unhappy with this unit.

Good basic dishwasher!

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I am moving and needed to update my appliances without breaking the bank. I like everything about this dishwasher except the flatware basket. It is much to small to hold the number of pieces we use. I have had to buy extra baskets for bottle nipples and sippy cup tops. They all fit perfectly in my last basket. These extra baskets take up a great deal of room in the top rack, creating more problems. I will definitely look at this next time I make a purchase.

    This machine was rated as a louder machine however; after it was installed, I was suprised at how quiet it was. Well worth the money for a cheaper machine.

    does not dry as well as my old dishwasher

    By 

    from Blacksburg, VA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

    This dishwasher is ok, but I am not impressed with its drying capabilities. Even using heated drying and rinse aid, there is significant moisture remaining at the end of the cycle. My 30-year old dishwasher that preceded this one did much better! It is also annoying that you cannot tell from the display which part of the cycle it is in (and in particular, how long the "heated dry" cycle actually lasts).

    Good Inexpensive Dishwasher

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

    For the price paid this machine does a fine job. My only complaint is that the normal cycle seems a bit long but the dishes and (surprisingly) the pots and pans come out very clean. I am happy with the purchase and I'm glad I didn't spend more

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

    Bought this dishwasher after owning two Fridgedare dishwashers that both lasted only five years and destroyed my kitchen floor both times after breaking down. I also had a Fridgedare stove that broke down after a few years and replaced that with a Whirlpool and have had no troubles. This dishwasher is so quiet and does an awesome job cleaning. I will only buy Whirlpool products in the future.

    We're very happy with our new dishwasher. It runs quietly, washes great and the dishes come out dry and ready to be put away. What more could you ask for?

    Super quiet!

    By

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

    My family purchased this dish washer a few months ago and use it 2-3 times a week. This unit is super quiet compared to our old dish washer. The only compliant that I have would be that the top rack items don't always dry completely. Most of the time, there are small pools of water on the bottom of mugs/cups. Other than that this dish washer is awesome!
