Is it just me or does KitchenAid's newest lineup no longer use the Clean Water Wash System?

KAs website is honestly a mess.
When I was shopping, I got a better idea of the lineup from Lowe’s website and visiting a WPMT brand store.

It is mess- your not the only one who thinks so.

Which models have the clean water wash system? They all seem to have the removable filter.

The user manual says that the main wash water temperature is 105F and if you use Hi-temp you get 130F to 140F for the temperature. 105F for a wash temperature is really low in my opinion and it is the reason you get such long cycle times for these newer Kitchen Aids.

According to their website, there are only a few CleanWater Wash models left.
Only panel-ready.
There used to be more.
I noticed too on Maytag’s site, that had dishwashers on close out.
I think WP is getting ready for a dishwasher line refresh for the new year?

According to KA site, only one model has the 'Clean water wash' option.  Which sounds really stupid because what's the opposite of that?  

Are we to believe all the other models have THAT instead?


One thing manufacturers do to make models seem different is to simply not mention in the literature a feature that was previously mentioned in upper models, even though all models actually have the feature.   (rolling eyes)  


Also, errors happen in the making of the site or brochures.  If your very concerned, I'l call the company or visit a show room somewhere to see the model in person.  Don't go based simply on what literature says.

my advice would be to ask a sale clerk at the store you usaly buy your appliances because maybe they are starting to sell liquidate older models for a newer model since sometime they redesing update there models to fit with newer energy norm?

I looked at the parts break down for these machines- the description is correct. Most of them do not have the clean water wash system.

The Maytag which is not on liquidation has a re-designed rack guide- double C and rollers- it no longer uses ball bearings.
