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've had this for about a month. I specifically wanted a more inexpensive dishwasher, because I didn't want to break out the directions when I used it, nor wanted a huge bill if it required service. I chose it based on utensil placement and lack of center sprayer that took up too much space on the bottom rack. While I find the particular utensil holes easy for putting dishes away, it does limit how much you can add. The utensil holder sections are quite small. Putting tongs or measuring spoons in them takes up quite a bit of space. I do like that you're able to put the rack anywhere, because leaving it in the door looks like the utensils over time, would ding up the door. Without the center sprayer on the bottom, does leave a lot of room for dishes. I also like that it has 3 sides that are larger to add in more oversized dishes. Adding glasses to the top wrack can be a puzzle. The center is the widest, and the width of those areas see to pan out from there. It does hold a lot of dishes. And I do like the 4-hour delay, although I wish it had a 2-hour option. It does not dry completely. Anything plastic, including the door stays wet all the time. I believe that's an energy feature, which is highly annoying. I think next time I'd opt for doing them myself and saving the money. But if you must have a dishwasher, I may even try the lowest end model in hopes that the energy features don't outweigh the dishwasher's performance and in this case drying. It's mediocre.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

My previous dishwasher was a Whirlpool and I had it for twenty years. Didn't even consider another brand.
And as expected it cleans my dishes very well, its spacious and quitter than my previous one.

Bought this end of year. Very pleased with performance on 1 hour wash cycle. Would give 5 stars, but this machine's capacity is a good bit smaller than my old machine.

Whirlpool dishwasher Model # WDF520PADW7

By 

from Vero Beach, FL

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Recently purchased the above model to replace a existing whirlpool dishwasher. The only problem is that model that got replaced was only 2.5 years old. Out of warranty with no extended warranty. Thanks to Google I was able to determine the wash cycle pump went bad. Tried to replace with a new one but the pump comes with the sump as a complete assemble. All at the tune of $170. Wife said replace it and warranty it. The old dishwasher was just about the cheapest whirlpool dishwasher you could buy. We bought a mid grade model this time. As far as the new dishwasher, the only complaint was at first start up it was loud. I mean very loud. The next cycle it was quite as a mouse. I just thought maybe the system had to be primed or something. Gets everything clean as a whistle and works as expected. Lets see how long this one last.

As a side note I should say that I buy Whirlpool products almost exclusively. The old dishwasher was the first Whirlpool product I have owned that did not last at least 10 years.
