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.

1-Hour Wash Cycle

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

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

The 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.

Adjustable Upper Rack

Manually raise or lower the upper rack two inches to better fit tall items.

Well we replaced a 25 year old Maytag with this unit and in all fairness to the energy star rating it is quiet, it does clean the dishes but the normal cycle is 3 hours long! Using the sanitize and heat dry brings that down to 2hours and 50 minutes. That really isn't my biggest knock on this thing. NOTHING fits in the racks. Our bowls and glasses don't fit in the top rack the way pictures show you. Our everyday plastic mugs are too wide to fit in the proper space making it impossible to put two rows of glasses or our side bowls and glasses in the top rack. The bottom rack is fine for flat dishes but pots and pans, they take up more space and so as energy efficient as you want to be there is no way you're getting all of your dirty dishes into one load. That's 6 hours of clean up time. I'm sorry but it just isn't as versatile as the old one from 25 years ago.
