Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first dishwasher [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So this is the first dishwasher I've had in my adult life. I just retired & bought a condo I'm sure I don't know all the tricks yet, but I have been very impressed so far I washed a set of Littonware I've had for 35+ years and it looks brand new! I'm in awe The washer is very quiet, which I like

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet I don’t know it’s running! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love this machine. Dishes are perfectly clean. Great capacity I had a similar machine in the past and I’m extremely happy with the improvements made! Deeper top rack for larger cups and glasses. Full length silverware basket with snap lid feature on all sections So quiet you have to check that it’s on!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough dishwasher. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this dishwasher a month ago, and my only real complaint is that the dishes don't always get dry, even using the drying aid liquid. Otherwise, if you stack them carefully they get very clean. One positive is that my copper bottom pots are free of tarnish, even if not polished shiny. Oh, and the door is a little hard to open.

Hello Vanm. Yours is an awesome question for it covers a topic not many of us would think about.

In the specifications the assembled height is listed as 35.63 inches but the cutout height is 34 inches. Which measurement is correct?

Asked by: Bonnie
Hi Bonnie, The assembled height is incorrect. The dishwasher goes as low as 33.5 in. and maximum height of 34.5 in as it can be adjusted. I am forwarding a link where you will find detailed information on page 12 from the Installation Guide regarding this: https://www.whirlpool.ca/content/dam/global/documents/201608/installation-instructions-W10806908-RevC.pdf Thanks for your question, Whirlpool Central Advisors

Does the 1-hour wash include drying?

Asked by: Nicole
Great Question! The 1 hour wash cycle is just for the wash cycle. The optional heat drying option would add more time to the cycle. Thanks for reaching out!

How many gallons of water does this use per cycle? Does Whirlpool list this info for their dishwashers anywhere?

Asked by: Rachel
Hi Rachel, for WDF540PADB the gallons per cycle are listed in the Use and Care Guide Page 8. The amount of water varies depending on the cycle selected. You can find this information on whirlpool.ca under the Manuals link. This dishwasher comes equipped with a Soil Sensor that determines how dirty dishes are and adjusts the Normal cycle as needed to make sure dishes come out clean. Thank you for your question!
