Customer Reviews

  • “I am pleased with the DDW1899BLS. I and my husband don’t really care much for a high-end unit, so features like a stainless stub and 8 place setting are enough for us. I also find the stainless steel finish quite attractive and easy to keep clean with a damp cloth.” – Spencer, Massachusetts
  • “I bought this dishwasher a year ago and have used it everyday, since. I did not own a dishwasher prior, but this is a dream come true in terms of eliminating frustrating kitchen chores. I give it 5 stars not because it is the best dishwasher, but because it has met and exceeded my expectations.” – Joe, New York


This Danby 18 inch dishwasher is not that difficult to install and it cleans dishes well. Some say that it performs similar to the more expensive models. On the flip side its cycles take rather long to complete. It’s also worth noted that it’s an energy efficiency unit that was Energy Star certified.

  1. I bought this model in 2014, and it appeared to be used, although I bought it as new. I learned right away that I could not trust the manufacturer, and the warranty is of little or no value. This dishwasher replaced a Kenmore that had been in service for 25 years, and worked great; but, the rack coating was compromised with extensive rust resulting. This model takes 3-4 times per cycle as did the Kenmore, but my pre-washed dishes are cleaned. However, in only 5 years, I have found that the lower rack has extensive rust, occurring from the inside out of the vinyl coating. I had only noticed it on one prong; but, when I removed it, for repair, I saw that the underside showed rust in many places. And, the vinyl coating, in places, was bubbled; and, removal of those bubbles revealed rust. This is obviously a manufacturer defect; but, of course, the 18 month warranty is expired. I sincerely doubt that it would have been covered within those 18 months. A responsible manufacturer would make good on any such defect; but, I know better than even to ask Danby.
