Dishwasher Buying Guide

There are many important factors to consider when purchasing a dishwasher, some of the most important are listed below:

Types of Dishwashers

Built In Dishwashers: Built in Dishwashers are typically 24" wide. Walmart.com also has coverage in 18" dishwashers, which have a smaller footprint and are referred to as Apartment Size Dishwashers.

Portable Dishwashers: Portable Dishwashers can be a great solution for those lacking space for a built in, while still maintaining the same functionality. Portable washers are connected to the kitchen faucet. Most have 4 wheels and can be moved away and stored while not it use. Portable washers are great because they can also be taken with you if you were to move.

Countertop Dishwashers: Countertop dishwashers are another solution for kitchens with limited space. Similar to portable washers, countertop washers can be easily connected to your kitchen sink.

Dishwasher Controls

Top Control Dishwashers: Top control dishwashers have the control panel hidden from external view on the top edge of the appliance. This style offers a seamless look and is considered a fully integrated dishwasher

Front Control Dishwashers: Front control dishwashers are often a more cost-efficient option. The controls are located on the front of the appliance and this is considered a semi-integrated dishwasher.

Dishwasher Finishes: Black, white, and stainless are the traditional finishes for dishwashers. Some new innovations are a magnetic stainless-look, finger-print resistant, slate, and black stainless finishes.

Dishwasher Cleaning Power/Cycles

Quick Wash: Quick wash cycles allow you to finish a load of lightly soiled dishes in around an hours' time.

Delayed Wash: Delayed wash allows you to start a cycle at a future time. Depending on the dishwasher, this could be scheduled anywhere from 1-24 hours in advance.

Sanitize: Some dishwashers offer a sanitizing rinse cycle that kill up to 99.99 % of bacteria.

Special Wash Programs: Some dishwashers offer specific wash cycles for fragile dishes or even pots and pans.

Dishwasher Tub Material

Plastic Tubs: Plastic tubs are typically found on more economical models. These tubs are very durable and should last the test of time.

Stainless: Stainless steel tubs are available on higher end models. Stainless steel tubs tend to run quieter than plastic models for the most part, if noise is a large concern. Stainless Steel tubs also are odor and stain resistant.
