AnyWare Plus Silverware Basket
The Whirlpool silverware basket allows you to keep all your silverware organized in one easy to use basket that is fitted right on to the lower rack of the door.
It not only allows you to keep silverware organized and properly cleaned, but gives you a lot more space and storage for other dishes. The Anyware Plus Silverware Basket is adjustable and can be placed onto the door of the dishwasher to free up space in the dishwasher.
One of the best features of the Whirlpool Gold Series are the various wash cycles if offers. It's five cycles are heavy, normal, sensor-wash, one-hour wash, and the soak & clean cycle.
With this variety, you're able to accommodate almost any load no matter what types of dishes or cutlery you run through. In addition to the wash cycles, the Whirlpool's drying feature is very powerful and allows you to get dishes from washer directly to your table without having to manually dry off with a cloth or rag.
One of the cycles that really stands out is the soil cycle. The Whirlpool has a specific sensor built in which detect and measures the size of your load and amount of soil level during the wash.
This leads to the dishwasher making adjustments during the wash process to ensure your dishes are squeaky clean. So if you have a mix of some dishes that are slightly dirtier than others, the Whirlpool will know and clean them adequately.
Quick One-Hour Wash Cycle Option
For a quick wash, you can select the one-hour wash cycle. This is ideal for those times when you may not have a full load of dishes or the dishes have already been rinsed before they were loaded into the dishwasher.
For those times, when you need as much help as possible, you can choose the heavy cycle. The heavy cycle option adds more cleaning time to the wash cycle.
Heated Dry Option
You can choose to heat dry the dishes when they have finished washing. This keeps you from having to dry the dishes with a cloth when they have finished washing.
One of the best features of the Whirlpool Gold Series Dishwasher is the Silverware Spray feature. Unlike many other dishwashers, the Whirlpool Gold Series Dishwasher spray cycle will clean your dishes using a concentrated spray directly onto the silverware basket in order to remove caked-on food.
Triple Filtration System
The triple filtration system uses less water and energy while providing maximum cleanliness by removing food particles and other debris from the dishes during the wash cycle.
The Whirlpool Gold Series Dishwasher WDT720PADM is the dishwasher you will want to choose if dealing with dirty silverware is the bane of your existence. With the silverware sprayer, it will make sure you never have to deal with food that has stuck to the utensils even after a heavy wash cycle.
In addition to the silverware sprayer, the Whirlpool Gold Series Dishwasher WDT720PADM also has a triple filtration system that will ensure that all food debris from both utensils and dishes will always come off during the wash cycle.
