Cycle and Option Selection for Dishes

Cycle and Option Selection on your Whirlpool Dishwasher

Was the correct cycle used? 

Select the proper cycle and options for the type of soils. The ProWash™ or Tough cycle should be used for tougher loads. The Normal cycle with the Heat Dry option selected is recommended to completely wash and dry a full load of normally soiled dishes.

This information covers several different models. Your dishwasher may not have all of the cycles and options described.
