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.

Nice addition to my kitchen appliances

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought it in Nov. was delivered 12/31/16. Favorite feature is the utensils holder on the door; giving me more room for dishes/pans/etc. One feature I did not realize (at time of purchase) was the lack of a latch for the door. There is not a visible latch...the door closes and there is not a lever/latch to hold it closed during the washing cycle. So far no problems and with time I will probably overlook this. All-in-all I love the quiet running cycle since the kitchen and the TV are in the same "Great room".

Top quality,quiet appliance

By

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

This dishwasher has proven itself with the first load. Dishes came out clean and sparkling. Being unfamiliar with appliance, seemed like it was not running, but that was because it is so quiet:)
Would rate this a five stars, if not for the lack of a readily available users manual. Had to struggle with searching online and printing a manual for an earlier similar model.
Find another excuse Whirlpool, this is not saving paper, but saving Company expenses, and wasting mine.
Would recommend to someone, if this had not been sold as readily available, instead of special order.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Built-In Dishwasher:

It's great to not need to pre-wash before washing the dishes. It takes somewhat longer to get them done on a normal cycle, but our previous was so old and cheap, maybe part of its problem was that it didn't take long enough.
