7 Wash Cycles Energy Star Qualified

The ultimate in luxury dishwashing and style, GE's PDW1800NII is in a class all by itself with its good blend of elegance and features. This built-in dishwasher sports a tub made of stainless steel and is programmed with fully integrated electronic controls.


Interior Features
  • PDW1800NII comes with an integrated control type which is fully electronic. The top controls sport 3 pushbuttons with a start/reset pad. This is useful in setting the programs for the dishwasher cycles including the normal wash, rinse only, light, heavy, glasses, speedwash and light. The Speedwash cycle is a fast cycle that reduces your dishwashing time considerably. The Glasses cycle is designed for gentle cleaning of glassware. The light cycle is perfect for lightly-soiled plates.
  • It is easy to organize the inside contents with the racking system, a nylon towerless system that comes with a standard silverware basket and plastic shelves. The racks are made of nylon that way they resist corrosion and they do not scratch the plates and delicate China.
  • The dishwasher sports a powerful heating feature, the Calrod heater which dries plates, glassware and silverware efficiently as it works hand-in-hand with convection air flow. You can also set the time for dishwashing even if you are not at home with the 1-24 hour delay start.
  • The tub comes with standard insulation. The tub collar trim and the sealed toe kick lessen the amount of noise that the unit produces.

    Exterior Features

  • The customizable door will allow you to integrate the washer with the rest of the kitchen cabinetry. The unit is small and compact with optional levelling legs. Exterior can be smooth and plain or can be designed according to the design of your kitchen cabinets.
  • The overall design is very stylish. This will fit any type of kitchen.

    Disadvantages

  • Some people are not impressed with the cleaning ability of silverware as well as of pots and pans. Pots and pans are better off hand-washed.
  • The unit also is not as quiet as advertized. The noise increases when the legs are not levelled. This is probably because there is no quiet package except for the insulation features built into the doors and the tub.
  • The unit lacks several important features such as the hard food disposal and moisture sensors. These are often the two additional features being sought by most users.
  • Because of its small tub the unit is not the one for those who need to clean large numbers of pots and pans after every meal.
