Child Lock
Child Lock After you set all controls exactly how you want them, employ the child lock to avoid unintentional changes to your settings.
Tall Tub
Tall Tub Tall tub dishwashers can hold more dishes than standard-sized dishwashers, and they also perform at lower sound levels.
Rinse Aid Dispenser
Rinse Aid Dispenser This dishwasher includes a Rinse Aid dispenser to help in reducing water spots on glassware and flatware.
Water Filtration
Water Filtration The water filter keeps food particles and debris from re-entering the wash as water and soap is circulated during the cycle.
Water Heating
Water Heating An internal water heater heats water for hi-temp and sanitize cycles, and your items will dry faster too.
Delay Start
Delay Start Use the delay option to have the dishwasher start at a specific time so your dishes are cleaned on your schedule.
Hard Food Disposer
Hard Food Disposer Achieve the ultimate in clean plates. Food particles are pulverized during the wash cycle so they don’t remain in the wash water and settle on your plates and other items.
High Temperature Wash
High Temperature Wash The high temperature wash cycle is perfect for heavily soiled pots and pans, and it also results in faster drying times too.
Sensor Clean
Sensor Clean Water and energy usage is automatically adjusted based on the soil levels detected by the dishwasher’s wash sensors.
Heavy Duty Wash
Heavy Duty Wash Say goodbye to steel wool scouring pads. Heavily soiled pots and pans have met their match with this dishwasher’s heavy duty cycle.
