Announcing the end of the noisy dishwasher. Until now, using a dish washer was a trade-off: Clean dishes for a noisy kitchen. Now Whirlpool has changed all that-with our newest Power Clean M Energy Saver dish washer with the Quiet Wash system. It's much quieter than any dishwasher we've ever built. So you can run it while you watch TV, talk on the phone, even take a quick catnap. The secret of our Quiet Wash system. How did Whirlpool do it? First, we studied the dishwasher and its entire washing system, beginning with a series of our current sound-softening com ponents. We found ways the motor could actually make less noise. That made the dish washer quieter, but we wanted to do better. So, we wrapped the dish washer in an extra layer of sound-absorbing insulation. We think you will be pleased when you hear the results. Remarkably clean dishes with less hot water. But don't let the quiet fool you. This Power Clean Energy Saver dishwasher still aJ has our patented washing sys tem that gets dishes remarkably clean. And all our Power Clean models use 20% less hot water in the normal cycle than our previous washing system. Whirlpool® dishwashers also offer a wide variety of cycles. Ones for heavily soiled loads, pots and pans, even an energy saving drying cycle. Plus a "delay wash" option that remembers to start the dish washer up to nine hours later. And our models with touch controls make it easier than ever to wash the dishes. Easier loading and unloading. It's amazing how many sizes and shapes of dishes you have. That's why Whirlpool dish washers are available with upper racks that adjust up and down. So you'll have more room to load that unusual-size glass. Whirlpool also offers the only dishwashers with the silver ware basket in the door. This makes it easier to load and unload, and helps prevent items from falling down into the bottom of the dishwasher. A promise of quality that we stand behind. Every Whirlpool appliance is backed by our promise of good, honest quality. It's a promise we've kept for 75 years, and we support it with programs like our toll-free, 24-hour Cool-Line® telephone service* to help you with problems or questions.
