On sale for under $500, the affordable Whirlpool WDF540PADM’s (MSRP $599) is a solid value.
For the price, it will put a little bit of stainless steel in your kitchen and—most importantly—get your dishes clean. A handful of extra features bump it above the lowest-end models, too. The WDF540PADM might not be fancy, but it makes for a decent kitchen workhorse.
It does, however, have a lot of competition.
