Sensor Cycle

Automatically selects the right wash and dry settings for your load by using two separate sensors to measure temperature, soil level and load size once during the prewash and once during the wash cycle.

Image Feature

1-Hour Wash Cycle

Clean dishes in half the time 3 so your plates, pans and glasses are thoroughly cleaned up and taken care of in just an hour.

Image Feature

No One Has Fewer Repairs 20 Years in a Row

For 20 years in a row, no other brand has had fewer dishwasher repairs, so you can rest assured it will continue to function the way your family needs it to.

Cycle Memory Quickly start your dishwasher with one button. It automatically remembers the last cycle you picked so it's stored and ready to go.

Soil Sensor Determines how dirty dishes are and adjusts the Normal cycle as needed to make sure dishes come out clean.

In-Door Silverware Basket Frees up rack space by easily fitting on the front of the lower rack or in the door to make room for more dishes.

Normal Cycle Use for normal amounts of food soil to clean up leftover messes from your day-to-day meals.

Heavy Cycle Take care of heavily-soiled messes and other hard-to-clean dishes without the extra elbow grease by adding extra time to the cycle.

Heated Dry Option Use a clean, dry dish straight from the dishwasher thanks to added heat for drying. For optimal drying results, use this option with rinse aid.

ENERGY STAR® Certified Exceeds government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on utility bills.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Brian 1/31/2017

The dishwasher is great. It has many cycles to choose from, like heated dry, sanitary dry, 1 hour wash, and one or two more. We do love that there is so much space and that the silverware rack in on the door so there is more room on the actual shelf.

Shawn B. 12/20/2016

This is our first dishwasher, I know, I know it's almost 2017. But I gotta say, why did we wait so long. It seems to get dishes very clean. Only complaint is it is a little noisy, but to get quiet you need to spend alot more money.

Just ok

Jenathome 12/13/2016

Overall this dishwasher is fine, but there are a few things that could be improved. The door won't stay open by itself without the bottom drawer open, which is annoying. It seems like it should hold more dishes but the layout of the top rack is awkward which limits how many things can be put in it. The cutlery holder is constantly being knocked out of place when I pull out the lower tray. It does a good job cleaning and is pretty quiet. The controls are also fairly straightforward.

No, I do not recommend this product
