AquaSense™ Fill System
Uses the precise amount of water needed to ensure the optimal level
in the tank for superior cleaning results.
CEE Tier 2 Qualified
These dishwashers are eligible for an energy rebate in select states
and provide even greater efficiency for further conserving resources.
Dedicated Drying System with Heat Dry Option
Dual-watt heater is recessed for a sleek, unobtrusive appearance.
The 850-watt heater efficiently heats water during the wash cycle.
During the dry cycle, the heater pulses on and off at appropriate
intervals to ensure dry dishes at the end of the cycle.
Dedicated Drying System with ProDry™ Option
This one-touch option takes all the guesswork out of drying dishes.
Glassware and dishes are dried to a near spot-free shine when selected.
Exclusive Silverware Basket Design
Large basket for silverware or other small items ensures the best cleaning
results with 98 total spaces. When closed, the unique sliding covers ensure
silverware doesn’t nest together, and fork tines don’t get tangled. The
covers also slide back and out of sight, revealing divided compartments
that can be used to clean various-sized utensils when needed.
Fold-Down Plastic Cup Shelves
Shelves are flexible, fold down, and are designed to hold multiple
pieces of stemware. Can be used as cup shelves when not being
used for stemware.
Hard Water Softener
Removes hard minerals from the water, leaving dishes and glasses
clean and nearly spot-free. Uses water softener salt specifically formulated
for the dishwasher.
Light-Touch Controls with Audio Feedback
Also known as capacitive-touch controls, the light-touch controls
feature audible noises when activated and respond to just the touch
of a finger.
Manual Adjusters
Works with the upper rack to adjust the rack to one of two
pre-set positions.
Premium Adjusters
Available with both the SatinGlide® System and SatinGlide® Max System.
These adjusters are located on either side of the upper rack and release
the rack on the rails, making it easy to raise or lower the rack with the
touch of a finger.
ProWash™ Cycle
Determines the appropriate cycle for washing dishes and
makes real-time adjustments for best cleaning performance.
SatinGlide® System
Features rails that allow racks to easily slide in and out on smooth rollers.
SatinGlide® Max System
Utilizes premium rails as the key to smooth operation. This system
features dual channels and dual ball bearings that allow the upper
rack to move in and out almost effortlessly – even when fully loaded.
Status Lights with Exterior Cycle Indicator
An exterior cycle indicator gives immediate feedback with changing
colors. A green light means the dishes are clean, a blue light indicates
the cycle is washing, while a red light indicates dry dishes. If any
light is blinking, the cycle has been interrupted.
