Whirlpool WDF518SAAM Reviews & Ratings

WDF518SAAM 18" Full Console Built In Dishwasher With 5 Wash Cycles, 57 dBA, 8 Place Settings, Energy Star Rated, and Quick Wash Cycle in Stainless Steel is rated 4.2667 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small DIshwasher I love my dishwasher! I have a small kitchen and putting in a full sized dishwasher would have taken away a stack of drawers. We went with the 18" dishwasher and it works great. We are a family of 5 - with my 2 older children and grandson and it works just perfectly for us. I start it before I go to bed and the sound is quiet - I don't hear it in the bedroom. The dishes are very clean - I have not had one that wasn't yet and we have been using it for over a month. Love my new dishwasher!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall pretty good Overall this dishwasher is pretty good. Very quiet and it does an excellent job cleaning dishes. Takes ~2 hours to go through an entire "normal wash" cycle which isn't too bad. However, the layout design inside the dishwasher is TERRIBLE! The upper rack's tines are not conducive to cereal bowls, the lower ones do a poor job of handling both large and small plates. I invariably spend 10 minutes trying to get my dishes to fit and we don't use a lot of dishes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, but poor quality control at assembly point. Bought this dishwasher and had it installed in a home we had just purchased. We kept noticing water on the carpet in front of the sink, but none in front of the dishwasher. Called a plumber as we thought a water line in the wall was leaking. Turned out that the dishwasher was leaking underneath, but only when it was running. Because of the design of my floor the water was getting under the tile and moving across to the front of the sink.Had a service person come out to inspect the dishwasher and it turns out that a retaining ring inside the dishwasher tub that holds the pump and drain unit in place was broken. A piece was broken off of it and was not in the unit, leaving the only assumption that it was assembled this way and was shipped past quality control. The plus is that the warranty is in effect and is being honored by the company. Very disappointing, to say the least.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First one defective but The first dishwasher installed leaked throughout the new kitchen from a defective part. Our installer said do not repair, get another new one. We needed this small size, otherwise I would purchases another brand. After another 2+week wait, another Whirlpool dishwasher was installed. 2 months later still working well - no leaks. It does work well for a small dishwasher. It is all a 2 person household needs

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sleek, small, effective I've had this a few months...used it a few times. It works well, cleans the dishes (although you have to thoroughly rinse them before putting them in). Doesn't dry as well as I'd like. Moderately noisy, but not bad. Overall, pleased. Great for a small apartment where you don't have a lot of space width or depth wise. Holds 1 dinners worth of dishes, I'd say!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quieter and better cleaning than expected We had been led to believe that such a small dishwasher would be very noisy. We were pleased with its quiet operation and the quality of the cleaning. Very easy to use, and very easy to install beneath our kitchen counter. For the quality is reasonably priced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for small space I wanted to work a dishwasher into my kitchen renovation but don't have much space. My household consists of my husband and myself so we only have to run it a couple of times a week. It gets my dishes clean and sparkly and runs relatively quietly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I expected but better. This is exactly what I was looking for. Really quite and the stainless interior is so nice. It's very quite and the dishes are very clean. Just wish I had room for a 24".
