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.

Like this dishwasher except for the racks

By 

from Georgia

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I've owned this dishwasher for about four months now. I like it for the most part except for the racks. The racks inside are poorly designed and don't hold much. I don't know how hard it can be to design decent racks. We tried to save the racks out of our old dishwasher and put them in, but the didn't fit :-( Otherwise, the machine is quiet, so far has been reliable, has a variety of cycles and has that great one hour cycle for when you need the dishes to be cleaned more quickly (and it does get them clean). This machine does clean very well and overall we are happy with our purchase.

Great dishwasher

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this 3 weeks ago and I have been so happy with it. Replaced a very old dishwasher that wasn't cleaning well. I haven't had to run dishes through a second time to get them clean. Also, this is a very quiet machine. I used to have to turn up TV in living room to drown out the loudness of the old equipment. Now I can barely tell it's even running.

Best dishwasher we've had yet!

By

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

After 4 dishwashers in 10 years, I am thrilled with this, my first Whirlpool dishwasher product! With 2 teenage boys in the house, I have a constant flow of dirty dishes, cups and peanut butter encrusted knives! :) For me, this is the first time a dishwasher has successfully cleaned them all, at the same time, in one wash! It is pretty quiet and holds quite a bit of dirty dishes. I really like the silverware bin on the door, what a great space saver. It allows me to put even more of the larger items on the bottom rack. I couldn't be happier. :)

Im pleased with my new dishwasher I bought a month ago. It is easy to use. I really like the design on the door for silverware. Push buttons on the front of door are easy to use and understand.

Super quiet

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this about a month ago when the washer went out. So we needed a new dryer to go with a new washer. Then the salesman mentioned he could throw the dishwasher in for a good price and as we had been looking for a new dishwasher (kind of) we got this one. It's really quiet, which is nice, and the cycle is about an hour. It's smaller on the inside than our last one, but we're learning how to load this one for maximum use.

Somewhat disappointed

By 

from Georgetown, DE

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

There are some things that I like about this dishwasher. It is an attractive unit. I like that the utensil holder can be placed so many different ways in the bottom rack or on the door, and that the sections in the bottom rack allow many options on loading dishes. Unfortunately, that's where my likes end. This machine is a bit louder than my previous machine. I like to run it overnight, but I have a small house and I can hear it from my bedroom. I also miss having a spray arm at the top of the machine. My biggest disappointment is the design of the top rack, which is an epic fail!! Although a couple of the sections are designed with a slant, they are not wide enough for any of my mugs, which means I have to put the mugs over the tines in between two sections. This is very inefficient and results in my only being able to fit HALF the items in the top rack that I used to be able to fit in my previous dishwasher, which has resulted in my needing to run the dishwasher more often than before.
