Energy Star, Hidden Electronic Controls

Energy Star, Hidden Electronic Controls

The GE PDW1860NSS departs from the usual combination of features offered by other GE Profile series dishwashers. It does not boast of the supposed mainstays SmartDispense technology and the DeepClean features. Instead, it boasts of 7 cycles, which are more than the usual, along with the 24-hour delay start and ADA-compliant certification.

Interior Features
  • This GE Profile series offering comes with the Energy Star certification. It means that the appliance is energy-efficient, making use of the minimum energy to perform the task at hand.
  • The usual number of cycles for a GE Profile series dishwasher is around 3 to 4. The GE PDW1860NSS, however, has 7 cycles. This should be great for households that need a wide variety of cleaning and rinsing options. The 7 cycles include the Glasses, Air Dry, Normal Wash, Rinse Only, Heavy Wash, Light Wash, and SpeedWash options.
  • The GE PDW1860NSS has a brightly annealed stainless steel interior. In simple terms, the interior has a glossy finish that is not only beautiful to look at but is also resistant to rust and corrosion.
  • Other dishwashers from the GE Profile series operate with a 2/4/8 hour delay start. This particular model, the GE PDW1860NSS, comes with a delay start option that can go up to 24 hours. This means that users can set the operation of the appliance to about the same time every day.

    Exterior Features

  • The dishwasher is ADA-compliant because of its height. ADA stands for American with Disabilities Act. And so, the dishwasher may be used by differently-abled people with little problem.
  • Inside the door's upper edge, the controls are hidden. The users may choose to be the only ones who can access the controls by not showing their young kids where they are.
  • Nylon racks are used in the GE PDW1860NSS. The exterior can also be in white, black or stainless steel.
  • Aside from stainless steel, other options for the exterior finish include custom panel, black, and white.
