The Whirlpool GU2800XTV model is a high end, built-in (under counter) dishwasher unit. The GU2800XTV premier model exterior is outlined in a monochromatic stainless steel and provides a sleek, and modern look to any kitchen; the unit is also available as completely different models in white, all black, black on stainless steel, and biscuit (See model series section below). Special features common for all the units included in this particular model series include fully integrated electronic controls, an adaptive wash cycle that uses dual sensors to determine the current load size and automatically adjusts settings to save time, energy and water; and each of the devices also include an NSF certified Sani-rinse option which sanitizes the dishes at a hot temperature to completely eliminate any excess germs. The Whirlpool 2800 series dishwasher units are equipped with a Quiet Partner V system that provides sound-reducing insulation and five different user-selectable levels of quiet operation. Another integrated system includes the SheerClean direct feed wash system which allows the device to collect dirty water through the back draining ports and inject fresh cleaning water from five different angles; this ensures the clean water remains clean during the entire process and the device is not just re-using the same dirty water. Each device is Energy Star qualified and as Whirlpool claims will consume 25% less total energy than a conventional dishwashing unit. The Whirlpool GU2800XTV model dishwashing units include additional features such as a Powerscour option, an Anywhere plus silverware basket that can fit in three different places, light item, side item and utensil clips that help to secure lightweight items during the wash cycle, a special glass express cleaning cycle, a slate interior tub, EZ-2 Lift adjustable racks, an auto soil sensor that automatically adjusts cleaning options regarding the dirty state of the dishes, a control lock, 6 washing cycles, and fold down tines.

The only con I have for this is that is takes so long for each cycle. My old machine (it was Coppertone color - does that tell you the age?) took about 30-45 minutes for the cycle. The cycles on this machine can take longer than 3 hours! I've read up on it and it is supposed to be more energy efficient and so far I haven't seen a jump in the bill, but I think it's much to soo to notice. One thing I don't like is that if you open the dishwasher after it finishes the wash cycle (say to make sure everything is flipped the way it should be), and you had chosen the drying cycle, it will not dry after you re-close the door. Must be a temp control issue with this......overall I love it though.
