Danby Dishwasher DDW1809W 18 Built-in Dishwasher

The Danby dishwasher DDW1809W is a great little 18 inch built-in dishwasher.  Here the Dishwasher-Review.com team has summarized both the key features and customer feedback for this appliance.

Founded in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1947, Danby has been producing appliances for 66 years throughout North America. So, while the name may not be as widely recognizable as other appliance brands, Danby has seemed to find a place for its products among the big boys of the industry.

Customer Opinions - Advantages and Disadvantages

Most consumers bought this model not just for its comfortable price point, but also for its compact design.

Many recognized that there would be some obvious noise issues that came with a relatively inexpensive 18" dishwasher, but overall, the performance was there (along with the expected above-average noise level).

Those with small kitchens or small families found this model ideal, and especially appreciated the EnergyStar rating and flexible wash cycle options.

Many of the complaints with the Danby DDW1809W 18" built-in dishwasher seemed to come from lack of customer service from the purchasing store or unresponsiveness from Danby customer service via the toll free company number.

Some saw their dishwasher damaged in shipment, and said replacement parts were difficult to find. Some also had problems finding the salt needed for the water softening device. Only a handful of people experienced problems with product performance.

What does this mean for you?

It’s not a difficult concept. You know you can’t expect the performance and high-tech features of a $1200 dishwasher when you purchase this Danby DDW1809W.

But, if what you need is a compact, relatively inexpensive product that is easy to operate and performs well, this could be the right product for you.
