"One of the great things about the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ dishwasher is its high-quality finish and durable feel."
The Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ is a built-in dishwasher that’s high-quality both in design and function. The fully integrated installation means it will blend into your kitchen seamlessly and its tall tub makes it a great addition to combat large loads. With a price tag of between $850-$900, this dishwasher is mid-range in price, but above average in performance. With several features, high-quality materials and a sleek design, the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ is a dishwasher worth considering if you want value for money.
One of the great things about the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ dishwasher is its high-quality finish and durable feel. This dishwasher comes with a stainless-steel exterior and measures 23.9 x 24.5 x 34.5 inches, so it’s tall enough to fit pots, pans and larger items. Although this could be too tall for some kitchens and functions, it’s a useful dishwasher for people who have larger families or cater to a lot of people and would benefit from the larger design. The interior material is plastic, and the rack is made from nylon, so although this may limit this dishwasher’s durability somewhat, it still stands up to the test and delivers a spectacularly clean wash.
It’s also worth mentioning the exterior finish on this dishwasher is finger-print resistant, so watermarks and smudges aren’t going to hinder the supreme quality of the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ. Furthermore, this dishwasher comes with an LED indicator light to show you when the dishwasher is on a cycle, and how long is left. The control buttons are in the top of the dishwasher door, so while you do have to open the door to see and use the controls, it also means the front of the dishwasher is kept sleek and smooth, without a control button in sight.
The handle on the front of the dishwasher is sturdy and comfortable and opens the door of the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ with ease. As well as this, the upper racks on the top shelf of this dishwasher fold down, allowing you more room and freedom to put in larger items when you need to. This dishwasher comes with a cutlery basket that can stand up or fold down, however when it's folded against the door customers have noted this makes it very difficult to load and unload. But as it’s a larger cutlery basket, if it stands up it then eats into the space on the bottom rack. Having said that, it's a nifty design feature that isn’t common on dishwashers and therefore does make the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ stand out.
The overall performance of the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ dishwasher is impressive and in line with the best dishwashers on the market. Firstly, the sound quality on this dishwasher is good as it gives off only 51 dB on a cycle, which is low for a dishwasher that has a plastic interior. The cleaning power of this dishwasher is also worth mentioning, as that too is also very impressive, with customers not left disappointed with the quality finish on their kitchen utensils. Top-quality dishwashers have to deliver on cleaning quality, so it’s great to know you will get that with the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ. As far as efficiency goes, this dishwasher has an average yearly cost of just shy of $27, which given the prices of other more expensive dishwashers, is quite low in comparison.
Ease of use and other features
This dishwasher can hold up to 13 place settings, with the bonus of being able to accommodate larger and taller kitchen items when required. Although the tines on the lower rack can’t be moved which makes fitting larger bowls a bit more of a challenge, this is helped by the taller design of this dishwasher. If you’ve been baking a lot of cakes or cooking for a large number of people, at least you know the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ will support you in the clean-up! There are five wash cycles on this dishwasher too, from a sanitizing rinse, heated dry, high-temperature wash, heavy duty, and normal cycles. So, there’s plenty of choices when it comes to washing functions, even though it’s not as many as other dishwashers on the market. But, the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ dishwasher gives you the option to delay the start for up to 24 hours in advance, so if you’ve got a busy day ahead, you can work the dishwasher timings around to suit you. The heated dry function on the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ is one of the more popular features and what makes this one of the best dishwashers if you’re looking for one where you don’t have to dry every item by hand once it’s washed them.
Overall, the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ is a great dishwasher to have if you’re looking for a taller model that doesn’t scrimp on the functions available. There are still plenty of features to choose from even though this dishwasher is more of a basic model than others on the market. The high-end features on this dishwasher come at a mid-range price, so you’re not paying silly money for it. This dishwasher also comes with a 1-year warranty, so you know it will get sorted if something goes wrong with it. Along with the child-lock features and stylish design, the Whirlpool WDT710PAHZ will make a useful addition to any kitchen.
