We got this dishwasher when we had our house built, along with the Amana microwave and fridge to go in it. It consists of the normal two pull out design with a top and bottom tray. The bottom tray has more vertical space to it for your bigger pots and pans whereas the top rack is quite small in terms of the room from it to the top of the dishwasher. The options and cleaning abilities that you'll find in most dishwashers are here, nothing really stands out about that part, it works well for the most part as long as you set up the dishes properly (nothing cover something sot he water won't reach it for example). We have had to sometimes wash a dish or two more the once, as a bowl or something accidently covered part and the dishwasher didn't really get it clean, but it happens in almost any dishwasher, least ones I've used. The main problem with the diswasher is the top rack. It's a very limited space, you can fit bowls and very small plates in it, but even small things likle tubberware or such will be a pain to fit in it correcotly. If you are looking for a good quality diswasher for a big family, I'd suggest another. However for just a couple of pepole on oa budget, ti works fine for what you expect from it.
