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.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

We purchased the Whirlpool dishwasher because the one we replaced we had for 24 years and it still worked. We needed to upgrade and this model had a feature that we liked that allowed us to keep the same cycle every time by just pressing the start button. It is very quiet, cleans wonderfully and dries the dishes great.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher a couple of weeks ago and decided to purchase another whirlpool because my other one lasted 23 years. It's so quiet, has lots of room and the stainless front looks very nice against my oak cabinets, so far no problems and it runs smoothly.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

the only thing I am not happy with is that the drying cycle does not completely dry everything. You either have to air dry or wipe dry. Have had tech out, says the machine is operating properly. UGH!

Best deal for the money and works great

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

We bought this two months ago after our "high end" washer with all the bells and whistles quit dispensing soap and water wasn't coming out of all the jets, and we'd only had it 6 years. ( We cleaned the water jet holes, which didn't help as no water was coming out of the top sprayer, plus our water is soft). It is just barely louder than the first one, and the top basket cannot be positioned higher, but for one-third what the other one cost, we'll take it. The dishes are very clean and dry, which is basically what we want.

Great dishwasher

By

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher in December 2016. I like how quiet it is when its working, and the spacious bottom rack . I love that the utensil caddy is removable and that it can be attached to the outside of the bottom rack or on the door itself. However, sometimes my dishes have a residue from the dishwasher soap. Not sure if it is from the detergent itself or the machine.
