WDF518SAFB 18" Energy Star, ADA Compliant Compact Tall Tub Dishwasher with 8 Place Settings, Stainless Steel Interior, Quiet Partner Sound Package and Quick Wash Cycle: Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great looking, dries well, but difficult bottom tray We recently upgraded our kitchen with stainless steel appliances and bought this to replace an older 18 inch frigidaire dishwasher. The new one looks great and very modern. We find that it does a better job washing as well and is quieter. Our only beef is that the lower dish tray is award to fill with dishes. Also, if you load bigger plates the tray becomes top heavy and tends to come off its runners. We split the utensil basket and rearranged it which has helped with space utilization. Overall, it is a good investment, but the designers should improve the lower tray to make plates stand straight and add more stability to the tray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, but does it All I recently did a kitchen renovation and researched small dishwashers. I am single and a large sized dishwasher was a waste of space for me, as well as the fact that it would take me forever to fill it up. I chose the Whirlpool Compact Tall Tub. I love it! As the name implies, it's compact, yet when there are 5 of us for dinner, it more than handles the job. It's surprising just how much can be loaded into this dishwasher, and my dishes come out shiny and spotless. I frequently hear, "oh, I didn't know you could buy a small dishwasher". I bought the stainless steel finish and it blends beautifully in my kitchen.

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 Upgrade! When we moved in 4 years ago, we knew that we were going to have to replace the gold 1980's style dishwasher that we inherited. Flash-forward 4 years and we finally purchased a new dishwasher. Due to the design of our kitchen, we knew we could only get an 18 inch dishwasher. This dishwasher works great. The run cycle is about an hour and a half with settings of normal wash and heated dry. We usually set the dishwasher to run after we've gone to sleep (using the delay start function of course). This isn't the quietest dishwasher on the planet, but it certainly beats washing dishes by hand. We can still easily hear the television/music in the other room as well. You do have to yank on the latch pretty good to open the dishwasher, but it's not that big of a deal.

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!
Date published: 2014-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite, efficient, dishwasher for small places I'm pleased with this purchase. Fits more dishes than you would expect for the size and runs very quietly.
