About - Whirlpool WDF310PLA[ ]

The Whirlpool WDF310PLA[ ] is a dishwasher available from Whirlpool. The WDF310PLA[ ] typically costs between $314.72 - $426.80.

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on dishwasher models like the WDF310PLA[ ].


Sensor:
A sensor adjusts water usage and cycle time to the amount of soil on the dishes. This should make a dishwasher use water more efficiently, but we found that wasn't always the case. Moreover, a sensor can increase a machine's running time.

Interior material:
A dishwasher's interior, which includes the inside of the door, could be made of stainless steel, plastic, or a combination of the two--such as a plastic door and stainless sides and bottom. Unlike a plastic interior, an all-stainless interior won't discolor, but it does increase the cost of a dishwasher by about $100.

Stainless/SS-look option:
Stainless steel is stylish, but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.

Tested Model
The Ratings of Whirlpool WDF310PAA[W] were applied to untested model Whirlpool WDF310PLA[ ], which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.
