Lower Dish Rack
There is only one dish rack on the Sunpentown SD-2201W. With the exception of a removable cutlery basket and a shallow upper shelf that folds out of the way, it cannot be adjusted at all.
Upper Dish Rack
The cutlery holder has a variety of openings, many of which are too small to fit most flatware handles into.
The detergent dispenser features two compartments. In the detergent one, there's room for wash powder for small or large loads. Next door is a rinse aid dispenser.
Ease of Use
Rack tines are spaced too close together to load larger bowls, but otherwise the Sunpentown SD-2201W is somewhat easy to fill with dirty dishes. Larger pans may be too tall to fit standing upright, so they may take up more space lying down.
As it's devoid of most soundproofing, you'll know when the Sunpentown SD-2201W is on. There's a distinct hum when the pump is pushing water out of the drain, and a whooshing noise when cleaning is underway.
There are three buttons on the front of the Sunpentown SD-2201W: a power button, a start/stop button and another selector button that scrolls through all available cycles.
