The five wash cycles on this dishwasher are heavy, auto, normal, express and rinse – all of which are fairly standard on a modern dishwasher. The five additional wash options are delay, half load, delicate, sanitize and extra shine.
The dishwasher includes both a sanitize and a half load wash option. Its sanitize wash option is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation and uses high-temperature water to make sure your dishes come out sanitized. You can use the half load option when you have a small load of dishes to run so you won’t have to run a full cycle and use water and energy that isn’t necessary.
This dishwasher also features an InfoLight, which will shine a red beam onto the floor to let you know that the dishwasher is currently running. The dishwasher also includes a third rack, which can hold flat and small items and allows the dishwasher to hold more.
