This built-in dishwasher gives you six wash cycles, and you get two additional wash options, which is fewer compared to other units in our lineup. However, the wash cycles it does offer gives you a good variety for many situations. The wash cycles are heavy wash, auto wash, normal wash, delicate wash, express wash and half load. The two wash options on the unit are a delay start and a sanitize option. However, the unit lacks a child lock function and a rinse-only wash cycle.
