Product Description

Amana Tall Tub Dishwasher

Product Description

Amana Tall Tub Dishwasher
Amana dishwashers make the task of doing dishes as simple as load-and-go with features like the tall tub interior, which easily fits items too big for standard dishwasher tubs. The Triple Filter Wash System eliminates prewashing and rewashing from your daily routine and delivers results in clean dishes all set for the next meal.

Product Features

Additional Features


Save money while conserving energy. These dishwashers meet 2012 ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency.

Terrific Top Rack

Twice as Nice Silverware Baskets
Pick a place. Whether you put these two silverware baskets in the front, on the sides, or in the back of the lower rack, your utensils will receive an ideal dose of clean.

Tall Tub Interior

Tall Tub Interior
Fill tall orders. This tub provides room for items that are too big to fit in a standard dishwasher tub.

Triple Filter Wash System

Triple Filter Wash System
The Triple Filter Wash System uses three filters—a filter screen, coarse filter, and micro-fine filter cup—to capture food during the wash process to keep dishes clean.

Antimicrobial Component Protection

Antimicrobial Component Protection
Built in during the manufacturing process, antimicrobial component protection helps inhibit the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria on the silverware baskets.

High Temperature Wash Option

High Temperature Wash Option
Turn up the heat. With the High Temperature Wash option, a heater boosts the water temperature during the wash cycle, and an extra rinse is added for enhanced cleaning and drying.

  • 3 cycles, 4 options
  • Heated Dry Option
    Leave the dishtowel on the rack. An internal heater removes excess moisture so your dishes can go straight to the cupboard, no towel required.
  • Heavy Wash Cycle
    Sick of scrubbing? This cycle provides heavily soiled items with a longer, more thorough soaking to scour away grungy messes.
  • Normal Wash Cycle
    This cycle works great when you need a little extra attention but your dish loads don't. Ideal for all-purpose cleaning.
  • Rinse Aid Dispenser
    Automatically adds a measured amount during the wash cycle to reduce the potential for spots on your dishes, and give you one less thing to worry about.
  • SofSound I Quiet Package — 59 dBA
    The SofSound I quiet package ensures the dishwasher won't interrupt your life. Too bad it won't work for telemarketers.
  • Electronic Console
    Provides a stylish, refined console design that's at home in any kitchen. Flat controls keep cycle selection simple and your kitchen looking sleek.
  • Delay Start Option
    Wash when you want to! Set the dishwasher to run, even if you're off and running. Or, save money by setting it to run during off-peak energy use hours.
  • Soil sensor
    You know that baked-on pizza sauce probably needs more elbow grease. The dishwasher knows, too, thanks to the soil sensor, and adjusts wash time based on dish soil levels.
  • Control Lockout
    Locks the controls so little fingers can't turn on the dishwasher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth considering in the ~$350 range May 26, 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
To help put my review in context, I was very fortunate and received this as part of the Vine program. I have, however, been considering getting a new dishwasher for quite some time and have been looking at washers both online and in the stores. My ~14-year-old Whirlpool dishwasher still cleaned well, but I thought that it was excessively loud and I wanted to get a quieter washer. Overall, I've been happy with this Amana and recommend that you consider it if you're looking in this price range. I've tried to detail out some areas for you below, and I've mentioned some tips at the bottom if you have this installed for you.

Very good, IMO. Okay, I'm not the ultimate tester for this, as I tend to rinse off my dishes before I put them in the washer based on old habits. I haven't tried any baked-on lasagna :) I certainly don't "clean" dishes before putting them in the washer, though, so hopefully my results will represent what you'd see - and the results are excellent. I thought that my Whirlpool got dishes clean, but dishes come out of this washer looking even better. They seem smoother and have a better shine. I'm using the same detergent (Cascade Complete Pacs) as I've used for years. I have been using a new rinse aid (Cascade that came with the unit versus Jet-Dry that I've used for years), but I honestly think that it's the washer doing a better job. My Whirlpool only had a washer arm on the bottom, whereas this tall tub unit has washer arms underneath of both racks. Plastic dishes, ceramic bowls, glasses, cups, and stainless steel utensils have all come out looking great. I'm a fan of air drying, but I did use the heated dry once to try it out.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have had the pleasure of using this Amana Dishwasher for the past week and I love it! I ordered it because of the Tall Tub feature. I use Fiestaware dinnerware (Made in USA) which is heavy and the chop/buffet platters are large. In the older model d/w this replaced, they would only fit on the very outside edge of the bottom rack. Not very convenient. I could put all of them in this Amana! That alone makes it a keeper for me!

I have tried the different cycle features and the 1 hour works best for me. I timed it (because it runs so quietly I couldn't tell when the cycle was finished!) and it is exactly 1 hr! I called customer service (excellent, fast response) because I did not see an Air Dry feature which is what I prefer to use. If you want to air dry - don't depress either heat option button - that is your air dry. When both lights show black, not green. When the cycle finishes you can just leave the d/w alone (which is what I do) or you can crack the door a little bit for the air dry. Be prepared - if you crack the door, lots of hot air/condensation/steam will come out and if you are in a warmer climate as I am, you might want to avoid that which is why I rarely use a heated dry cycle. I don't need additional heat in the kitchen!

The cutlery/flatware baskets are unique! Instead of just dropping the pieces of flatware into the baskets - keep the tops closed and place each piece individually in a slot to avoid pitting/scratching the finish. Especially nice if you are using new stainless steel or 'company flatware' - or, if like mine and it's older flatware, just open the tops and put them in together :) The closed tops are also nice for small items such as measuring cups, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good basic unit May 23, 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Amana Tall Tub Dishwasher is an excellent basic unit. It has few settings, but they are more than able to get the job done, no matter how badly or lightly soiled your dishes are. The settings/controls are super user friendly - very straight forward - no need to read the manual to figure it out. Quite honestly, the fewer selections, the better because it is less to malfunction or go faulty.

It is super quiet! The most I hear of it is when the water is running through it. You do not actually hear the motor etc while it is running - just the water.

A tall tub dishwasher will fit the same as a standard dishwasher. It does not mean the dishwasher itself is taller. The inside is just more spacious/taller. You can fit ALOT of dishes/pots and pans in this dishwasher! We are a family of 5 and I am able to fit 2 days worth of dishes in, including pots and pans. I found this out by accident actually - I loaded up the dishwasher one night before bed, but forgot to start it. So the next night, I just rearranged the dishes a bit and added all of the dirty stuff from that day as well. I was surprised it all fit and that it all came out perfectly clean.

My old dishwasher was a GE. This Amana cleans pots, pans and dishes thoroughly clean. I have even put the sheets from my toaster oven in and they come out so clean. Normally I have to scrub them to death in the sink, but this dishwasher did an excellent job on them! I do not have to rewash anything and I do not do alot of prewashing or rinsing - I just make sure any large "chunks" or pieces of food are not on any of the dishes/pans. Even plastic items come out clean, with no film or residue on them.
