Whirlpool Corp. says its new third rack dishwashers feature the largest capacity to date and are designed to fit mugs and bowls, so fewer dirty dishes are left behind in the sink.
“Whirlpool brand designs innovations knowing our consumers’ top priority is caring for their families, and that was the inspiration behind our new largest-capacity third rack dishwasher line that helps families to load more dishes at one time and run their dishwasher less often,” says Katie Sadler, Whirlpool Kitchen brand manager. “We know how frustrating it can be when there’s a few dirty dishes left behind in the sink. So, we’re helping families with a dishwasher that can fit a lot in one load.”
As the company explains, families are spending more time at home, and the kitchen has become the go-to destination to create fun, enjoyable and sometimes messy memories. “According to a recent survey, three out of five (63%) homeowners find themselves cooking more often since the pandemic,” the company says. “Frequent cooking can often translate to a pile of dirty dishes on the counter or in the kitchen sink, resulting in a lingering need to clean.”
Whirlpool says its new line offers the largest-capacity third rack dishwashers offering extra usable space to accommodate hard-to-fit items such as mixing bowls, blender jars, and casserole dishes. The size of the units make it easier to load mugs and bowls, silverware and long utensils on the third rack.
Homeowners can enjoy an adjustable second rack to continue freeing up space for more dishes, with easy-to-find adjusters that smoothly raise or lower the second rack to fit taller items like water bottles or traditionally hard-to-fit blender jars. Within the lower rack, the three-piece silverware basket can be separated and arranged based on the types of dishes being loaded, making it possible to fit casserole dishes and large pans.
The new third rack dishwashers offer a Leak Detection System that will flash a light on the front of the unit to alert the user if a leak is detected, while proceeding to drain water from the tub. An adjustable second rack makes room for a blender jar or baking pans with easy-to-find adjusters that smoothly raise or lower the second. The company says it’s their quietest dishwasher, operating at 41 decibel.
