Lowe's [lowes.com] has the Whirlpool WDF520PADM 55-Decibel Dishwasher Stainless Steel Energy Star for $269 ("regular" price $499). There are copious 10% off coupons to make this deal even better.

This is similar to last year's 4th of July sale on this model but it seems to be a Fathers' Day sale (6/15-6/21) instead. The sale may continue into 4th of July, who knows...

You'll need to purchase a power cord and a fill hose as the unit does not come with these two essential items. The drain hose is included. Buy these at the same time you buy your dishwasher and you'll also save 10% on these parts, if using a coupon.

Delivery is free, Lowe's wanted $15 to haul away an old dishwasher.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

TO BE CLEAR - this unit has a stainless steel panel but not a stainless steel tub. It's definitely a good price for a lower end unit but pretty much all mid to higher end units have stainless steel tubs.

I am a licensed appliance installer (Texas does require a license) with around 15 years of experience working with high end appliances.
for those SD'ers who are commenting about dishwasher installation:

a few installation recommendations once the dishwasher circuit and water valve turned OFF and old dishwasher has been removed ...

- clean and inspect old space including the floor. heat and moisture over time can result in laminate floors peeling or mold to grow on grout.
- replace the drain line - should come with the dishwasher. if not it can be purchased from HD for $10 . the #1 reason why dishwashers leak is from the thin brittle plastic drain line cracking from repeated exposure to hot water
- replace the hot water line if it's old. get the $12.99 kit that comes with the elbow connector that all modern dishwashers require (but of course never include)
- if you have a laminate countertop remove and replace the foil moisture barrier. for my rentals I completely sealed the underside of the countertop but you can get away with just a moisture barrier. =
- make sure new dishwasher is level by using one of those magnetic bullet levels - you can adjust all 4 screw legs and check the level hands free
- once level, screw in the mounting brackets at the top of the dishwasher (they screw into the underside of the counter top)
- once everything is hooked up plumbing and electrical wise, put red or other color napkins underneath the dishwasher and run it for two cycles. check for leaks afterwards. the color napkin will make it very easy to spot leaks

as far as long term maintenance - it's good to run a cleaning solution through the dishwasher every few months - the manual recommends the type to buy or you can make you own using vinegar etc. if this is for a rental unit, require that the tenant do this in the lease


if this dishwasher is being installed as a new install, it will be a little more complicated but not too bad at all. here are the things you will need to consider:

- i advise running a new 20amp circuit for the dishwasher instead of tapping into a counter top outlet. reason why i say this is if you try and run a coffee maker and this dishwasher on the same circuit it will definitely trip the breaker. if you have a garbage disposal on its own circuit you could ride on that since you don't usually run both at the same time (may or may not be code...honestly i don't really care about codes in my own home that i have no plan on selling, i care more about common sense)
- you will need to replace the vertical drain between the sink and trap with a piece that has a dishwasher inlet branch. not a big deal, the plastic version is $3, the finished brass version is $8
- you will need to drill 2 holes on the side of your cabinet so the drain line and water line can pass through and connect the dishwasher to the HOT WATER line and the drain
- ideally the dishwasher should be on its own shut off valve, reason being...if the dishwasher is leaking or has to come out you don't want to render your kitchen hot water out of commission. to do this is very simple these days even for someone who doesn't have any plumbing experience. presuming you have an old gate valve sweated on you have 2 options. once the water to the kitchen is turned off, the first option is to buy the $22 bottle of propane and sweat it off (literally just heating up the solder again and use pliers to pull the valve off. second option is to just use a little hacksaw and cut it off (straight cut). get a $9 shark-bite T connector and slide onto the hot water line. then either a little bit of pex or copper. cut ~2" of pex or copper and slide 2 sections onto the other branches of the T. then get 2 quarter turn shark bite valves and slide them onto each section of pex or copper. connect sink hot water line to one branch, and dishwasher water line to other branch. done. you just saved yourself about $150 and you didn't even need to practice "pipe fitting". for those who say "well sharkbites are so expensive blahh blahh". shark bite valves are comparable in price now to sweat-on valves. if you don't believe me then look at the price of a sweat-on ball valve at home depot and then at a shark bite ball valve. last time i was there...which was this weekend, the shark bite was $9.72 and the sweat on ball valve was a mere $0.74 cheaper. if you're doing a handful of connections just use sharkbite. sure if you're doing an entire house then the price difference adds up quick


feel free to PM me with any questions. attached is a photo of what i just described. if you're unsure of what to get - save the pics i posted and go to home depot. show the guy in the plumbing aisle you need to do this (show him the pics) and he'll get you everything you need. here is a full price breakdown:

- dishwasher water line kit - $13
- dishwasher drain line (should come with dishwasher, if not then $12)
- (2) shark bite valves @ $9.72 each = $20
- (1) sharkbite T connector = $10
- if you want to bring the hot water line forwards a little bit, grab a shark bite coupler for $8 that you slide onto the bare hot water line then a piece of pex or copper to the length you want, then slide on the T
- shark bite removal tool ring (i think it's $2)
- small section piece of copper (YMMV pricing), or a standard 10 ft piece of PEX for $3
- pipe cutter (depends which one you get, some are more expensive than others. expect to pay between $10-$25)
- sink drain piece with dishwasher inlet - (plastic is $3, brass will be $9)
- grab some extra 1 1/2" slip joint washers in a 2 or 3 pack for $2. you never know what the condition of the washer will be after (fill in the number) of years when you disconnect your existing vertical drain piece from your trap piece
They will only remove it if you're paying for installation. And if you're installing it yourself, you can easily uninstall the old one.
PS: My local Lowe's wanted us to pay $15 for them to haul away our old one, but I checked our city website, and for us at least, it is FREE and legal to place old home appliances on the curb to be taken away with the garbage. No need to pay for haul away if your city has similar garbage rules.

For haul away, do they remove the old dishwasher for me, or I have to remove it prior to the delivery?

You will have to remove it and disconnect for them to haul away, unless you purchase installation.

Thanks for the expertise. What would you recommend to be a economical but higher end model (stainless steel tub)? Also is the SS tub performing that much better?

Be careful to only buy gift cards and not store credit. Store credit can only be used in store!

Not saying what you found is bad just PSA for anyone considering sweetening the deal.
