Using Extended Dry on a Dishwasher (some models)

Using the Extended Dry Option on your Whirlpool Dishwasher ? 

Some models have an option under the Heat Dry setting for "Extended Dry". Using this option will extend the Dry Time on certain cycles for 25 - 35 minutes. Use this option for better drying performance.
