Get extra room for hard-to-fit items with the Third Level Rack

Whirlpool-Brand-Smart-Energy-Star-Dishwasher-with-Third-Level-RackLAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2018 – The family is evolving and so is the kitchen. It’s more than a place to prep meals or toss stuff, it’s where families finally cross paths and reconnect with the people who matter. To help make the kitchen a comfortable gathering space for family and friends, Whirlpool® is bringing expanded color, texture and handle options to the kitchen with the Whirlpool® Smart ENERGY STAR®  Certified Dishwasher with Third Level Rack.

The Whirlpool® Smart ENERGY STAR® Certified Dishwasher with Third Level Rack allows families to care smarter. Families can get customized cycles using the Download & Go™ option, right from their phones, to wash the way they want[1], count on the flexibility of the Sensor cycle to detect soils in their load to select the right wash and dry settings, load more dishes and get extra room for hard-to-fit items with the Third Level Rack[2], and target dishes using over 20 jets with the TotalCoverage spray arm.

Whether baked-on mac and cheese or Grandma’s casserole, families can customize care for any mess with specialty and customized cycles through the Whirlpool® mobile app[1], whether in the car or in the living room. Families can choose new cycles and send them to their dishwasher using the Download & Go™ option. Clean even the dirtiest of dishes or the most niche of items with cycles like Plastic Items and Canning & Brewing Items. The Whirlpool® mobile app works with Nest so families can delay their dishwasher from starting until they are away[1], or they can use the Whirlpool® mobile app to automatically reorder dishwashing supplies when they’re running low with Amazon Dash Replenishment.


From caring for delicate heirloom china to eliminating the toughest of stuck on messes the Whirlpool® Smart ENERGY STAR® Certified Dishwasher with Third Level Rack boasts:

  • TotalCoverage Spray Arm: The TotalCoverage Spray Arm targets dishes using over 20 jets to clean every bowl, every dish, everywhere.
  • Sensor Cycle: Get the right settings for each load. The Sensor cycle automatically selects the right wash and dry settings by using two separate sensors to measure temperature, soil level and load size.
  • 1 Hour-Wash Cycle: In a time crunch? The 1 Hour-Wash Cycle cleans dishes in half the time[3] so plates, pans and glasses are thoroughly cleaned up and taken care of in just an hour.

The Whirlpool® Smart ENERGY STAR® Certified Dishwasher will be available in three finishes, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel, Fingerprint Resistant Black Stainless Steel and Fingerprint Resistant Sunset Bronze, starting in Spring 2018.

From January 9-12, CES® attendees can get up close to all Whirlpool brand innovations at booth #41725 in the Smart Home section, located at the Sands Expo Center.
