I love it...But...
It arrived w/5 decent size dings & has a VERY slow leak at faucet adaptor (yes I used plumber's tape ;) too much of a hassle to return due to dings so I went ahead & tried it out. I spent countless hours researching several different brands of CT dishwashers & I'm happy that I chose this one because it cleaned my cruddy dishes (intentional) superbly! I will figure out something with faucet adaptor. Now if I could find a device that could load & unload dishes : ).

It doesn't fit
I received this item yesterday, and it is very badly damaged. I was still going to keep it because I really needed it. I took it out of the box and discovered even more damage than I first thought. It also had water already inside of it. I thought I might have gotten a used product. I brought it into my kitchen. It did not fit under my cabinets. Needless to say I am returning it. Very disappointed. See my pics.

Danby Countertop Dishwasher - 6 Place Se
1-20 of 250 reviews

A great portable dishwasher

This dishwasher is perfect for my family of four. Prior to receiving the item, I thought the rack was a stainless steel metal without any coating. The metal is coated so it won't scratch the dishes. I initially worried that my dishes would not fit in the machine (many people complained about this problem). My 10.75" dishes fit in the machine with more than an inch clearance from the top. Maybe other consumers tried to put the dinner dishes in the back areas of the rack and thus had difficulties. Danby instruction states one should put the dinner dishes in the front area. There are six slots for the dinner plates (6-place setting). I experimented with this machine under the following conditions: cheapest detergent (Walmart brand gel), quick rinse before loading into machine, full load, quick wash cycle (45 minutes). Under my test condition, the machine performed with barely any noise and all my dishes came out clean. The dishes were in near dry conditions within 5-10 minutes (post wash cycle). There were no leaks in the hose connection area, but I did put Teflon tape around the threads before screwing the hoses on. I hope this review was informative for you!

Perfect

The Danby dishwasher has helped my back stop hurting. I have had too much extra strain on my back lately, and was working to hard to try to get and keep my dishes clean. I wasn't achieving that task. I got the Danby dish washer instead of a back brace! After about a week of putting the dishes in the dish washer when cooking, on the quick cycle that runs for 10 minutes, my back was feeling better. It was like I had taken a whole load off of it. Using the Danby Dishwasher has given my back time to heal from the strain, and my back has gotten back strong again. So it was a good and worthwhile purchase for me. Also it's a countertop dishwasher but I have used it for a tabletop dishwasher because my kitchen counter is very small. The table sits right next to the sink, the hoses are long enough to reach and it works out perfectly space wise! If you have trouble getting the aerator off of your sink to replace it with the adapter, get the very large pair of pliers that fits all of the way around the cap to twist it off. They're about $20 at the hardware store. Remember to turn the water off and push the red button on the side of the attachment before you detach the hose from the adapter or else water will squirt in your face!

Great dishwasher

I ended up with 2 of them for Mothers day. Same item, different stores. Walmart had best price. I kept one. It is fantastic! Have used it twice a day and pleased every time. Easy to load/un-load. Sits on counter next to sink, very quiet, easy sink hook up and can use water while it is running. Received a $55 credit from electric company. It is very much a ENERGY STAR appliance. Use less water than doing by hand, have more time for second cup of coffee after meal and dishes are clean/dry and ready to be put away. I have used every setting. This thing does what it says it will do and more. I also run a rinse only at night just to keep inside fresh/clean. I put a mesh bag of cat balls in a short cycle and took out before dry cycle. Keeps them clean for kitty cat play. Like that I can pause cycle, open door then re-start same cycle. Yes! you can do flip-flops same way. Much better than washing machine/less energy used. Also had no problem with fitting dishes/pot/pans. DON'T OVER LOAD! Not any different than a washing machine. Too many of anything and nothing gets clean. Give items room so water can do its job. Even silverware needs room to get clean. If I find my self looking for space to add something I just save it for next cycle. Sometimes when we Bar-B-Q I run it twice because I may run out of room. It doesn't matter because it is quick/quiet. I leave large pans in sink waiting their turn and as it empty's in sink they get extra rinse advantage from cycle that is running. Just make sure drain is not covered. I use a few pieces of cook ware to hold pan off drain. We do take it in the RV and are going to remove the big one in the RV for a drawer base.

I love it...But...

I was initially unsure of it...but I Love it now!

Upon opening the box it was obviously used and returned because there were tiny amounts of spilled water inside and outside of the unit. I paid for and wanted a new one. But after easily connecting it (using teflon tape), I ran the 45 minute cycle...no leaks occurred. But, the cycle took much longer. It was about 1 hour 20 minutes to complete. I was happy with the results. The second day after making lunch I decided to try a longer cycle using cold tap water (instead of hot like the day before) because it wasn't ever made clear to me (thoroughly reading the description of the item and reading others' reviews), that this unit HEATS THE COLD TAP WATER up to 140 degrees fahrenheit. So to my huge surprise, after the prewash segment of this cycle (using cold tap water), the draining water came out piping hot. This is the point I knew I loved this product! But there's one more negative thing I'll mention. This second time I washed dishes, I set the unit for the 75 minute (1 hr. 15 min.) cycle. Unfortunately, that cycle actually took just over 2 hours to complete. But the dishes came out great!! I think it's completely worth the extra time the cycles actually take.

OK for a single person

First I'd like to say that I ordered this on a Friday & it was delivered on Monday so I have to give Walmart a 5/5 rating for prompt service & it was packed extremely well. Now onto the actual product review. I didn't realize how big this actually was so I have since ordered a cart for it to go on since I live in a studio apt & can't sacrifice that much counter space for this unit. All in all it was sill cheaper then buying a portable one. While it does wash dishes just fine I find it doesn't really dry them all that well but it's ok because I would rather have to hand dry them then wash them. This unit also has to be lifted up onto your counter so you have to have some arm strength or someone to help you. Getting it out of the box was also cumbersome because it was packaged so well. Also don't expect to put a lot in it, I had a hard time getting my skillet & the glass lid to fit & I only had a fer glasses in there. For the cost it was well worth the purchase!

enjoy purchase ... but

I bought a danby dishwasher but when i unpacked it there were dents in the side paneling

It came with a broken spray arm :(

This unit came with a broken spray arm. After it didn't work the first few times we tried it, I checked it over and found a broken part. It is on order as a warranty repair but we are disappointed because we can't use it yet!

It doesn't fit

It also had water already inside of it. I thought I might have gotten a used product. I brought it into my kitchen. It did not fit under my cabinets. Needless to say I am returning it.

Basically useless.

My normal-sized Corelle dinner plates do not fit. The detergent dispenser does not release more than a 1/3 of the detergent. I'll try switching from powder to liquid. The manual, which I read completely before using this machine, says it's just fine to use either. There are only 2 of us and we have very few dishes when it comes to breakfast and lunch but that''s even a problem for this machine. For the amount of counter space it takes up, you might as well, hand wash as oppossed to the amount of electricity you will use. The complete wash cycles, even the lightest setting, takes forever. I might try setting my hot water temp higher, (which will increase my energy bill), to see if it gets the dishes cleaner. I do rinse my dishes completely before placing in the machine but that doesn't seem to help. It's also extremely loud.

I love my dishwasher.

The chore I hate most is washing dishes, when I got a gift of money for Christmas I knew what I wanted. I have a very small appartment with limited counterspace. But this fits perfectly in my kitchen. The hook up was easy, it was tripled boxed which was good as the outer box was really torn up and broken, but the inner boxes were fine. when you use this dishwasher in order to make it last and not ruin the pump you need to unhook the water supply and run the program to blow out the pipes... this is the only thing I dont care for as I dont feel the pipes are truly cleared as it will not do a full cycle with out water. But this is not really problem, just an annoyance. I love my dishwasher, it cleans even pots and pans to a spotless sparkle.
i bought this product dispite the bad reviews i read. i am so pleased with this purchase. there are no leaks, no dents, very quiet while its running, easy 15 minute installation, the dishes come out clean and dry, i did have to set the rinse aid to 4, to eliminate the spots. so much easier that doing dishes by hand, i can even load pots and pans in to the dishwasher. extreamly happy with this purchase. i would recommend this product to everyone.

OK, but certainly not great

After several cycles, it does clean pretty well, but this is not a 6-place setting unless you're using smaller plates. I always regarded our dinner plates as standard size, and they're about 1/4" too large to fit where the manual says. With their height, the rack simply won't slide in. I found, though, that if I put them in the back left slots, they lean forward just enough so they'll allow the rack to slide inside. The problem with this arrangement is that dinner plates take up more space, making this more like a 4-place setting. I wish this washer had a standard faucet attachment, rather than a custom one requiring removal of our aerator.

Countertop dishwasher

Within 6 months of purchase, our dishwasher was leaking from the bottom. The only plus to this was that customer service was great and had it replaced within a week. The new one does not rinse thoroughly so there is a soap film on the dishes and always on the inside bottom of the dishwasher.

Great Dishwasher

This dishwasher is perfect for my mobile home. It washes a lot of dishes for its size. It is quiet. It is great. Easy to attach to faucet. I recommend it to anyone looking for a dishwasher n is limited to space.

good forlimited space kitchen

Installed quickly in laundry room adjacent to kitchen. Cycles are comparable to standard dishwasher. Controls are a bit over complicated. Nice unit for limited space without a complete remodel.

Great little dishwasher

Got it delivered nearly a month ago and have used it several times with no problems. It hooks up easily. It's quiet. It fits nicely on my counter. I would caution however that due to the inside being rather compact, you load the plates last or you won't get the other stuff in behind

great for a single guy

this is an awesome dishwasher I left a plate out for two days with dried egg yolk on it and this dishwasher cleaned it spotless

Very good for small loads.

My dishes get clean! It is a little tricky to fit plates or serving dishes. Silverware comes out clean if you remember not to use too much soap- it requires such a small amount.

This dishwasher is everything

You think you don't have the space or money for a dishwasher? Wrong! This little beauty sits right on the counter and saves my life day after day. We have a household of three, and this little beauty is plenty big enough. I can have guests over for dinner, toss the dishes in, and go right back to partying without missing a beat. The ten minute clean up is priceless, really.
