16 Place Settings, Energy Star, SmartDispense Technology

With the GE Profile series of dishwashers, it is a case of give and take because when there is a good feature missing, another one is given as a replacement. With the GE PDWT180RSS, there are only 3 cycles but the CleanSensor is highlighted in this particular Profile series model. All in all, consumers may still take the GE PDWT180RSS if they want a basic dishwasher that can save on energy consumption.

Interior Features
  • The GE PDWT180RSS is equipped with features that should be able to take away both visible and invisible dirt. The CleanSensor feature enables the dishwasher to gauge just how much soil is on the dishes. The GE PDWT180RSS responds according to what is sensed by the feature through the help of the SmartDispense technology. This technology responds to the dirt and grime by releasing the appropriate amount of water and detergent.
  • There are other cleaning features, such as the PureClean feature that contributes to the effective washing and sanitation of the dishes. Steam prewash helps in removing the sticky grime from the dishes before the actual cycle, while the PureClean feature basically purifies the water by making it undergo five levels of filtration. The Anti-Bacteria cycle is NSF-certified.
  • Its Energy Star certification lends the dishwasher more of a good reputation. It is certainly a must for appliances to be given this stamp of approval. The certification means that the GE PDWT180RSS is energy-efficient and can save the consumer a lot of money on energy bills while also helping in the conservation of natural resources.
  • The Quiet Package limits the sound produced by the GE PDWT180RSS to up to 54 dBA. Not as quiet as other Profile series dishwashers, but quiet enough so as to not disturb the household.
  • The dishwasher comes with the typical 2/4/8 hour Delay Start. It has 3 cycles and 5 options.

    Exterior Features

  • There are three colors to choose from for this dishwasher model. Aside from stainless steel, there's also a unit with black or white finish.
  • The electronic controls make it easy for the consumer to make his or her adjustments in the settings.
  • The racks are designed to be durable and rust-free. These racks are made of Eclipse nylon black. The upper rack is removable and the unit makes use of a silverware basket.
