The bottom rack

None of the tines are foldable, but you can still fit plenty of dishes.

Primary wash arms

The arms on the bottom of the tub and beneath the upper rack do a good job of getting water into the crevices of dishes.

Performance scores

The 13002 cleans as well as dishwashers that cost two to three times as much.
