Paul's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Three V Crossing, North Dakota: - October 30, 2013
The quiet cleaning power or our Electrolux is fabulous. Once you shut the door and turn it on you forget that it's running.
Gails's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from America, Oklahoma: - October 30, 2013
over the the years i have purchased alot of dishwashers, they always make alot of noises. but since i have gotten the electrolux, i have to remind my husband it is running, it is the quiestist machine i have ever had. i would highly recommend it to anyone who needs one.
Karl's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Experiment, Pennsylvania: - October 30, 2013
There may be a quieter dishwasher, but why?!!!! I can hardly tell when this one is on! It makes our old one feel like walking through an automated car wash when we were in the kitchen!
The Doctor's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Frostproof, Pennsylvania: - October 30, 2013
This is by far the quietest dishwasher that I have ever owned. I didn't realize how spoiled I have become with the quiet until I heard my old dishwasher at my neighbor's house. The only noise you can hear - is when it drains into my garbage disposal. When I got a new garbage disposal drain cover - it is even more quiet.
Little H's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Kickapoo, Texas: - October 30, 2013
Perfect, good looking appliance for my kitchen. So quiet my kids have opened the door while its running from the lack of noise. I never have to rerun any of the dishes, or pots that I load, even heavily soiled items come out clean on a normal cycle. Wish all of my appliances worked so well. thank you!
TBird's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from White Settlement, Texas: - October 30, 2013
I love this dishwasher. I usually pre rinse food off, but don't always so I was impressed that when I didn't remember that it wasn't necessary. This is the quietest dishwasher. I have to check to see if it came on. I can barely hear the water come in. This model has so many bells and whistles I haven't even tried, but I love how clean it gets the dishes and pans even on normal cycle. I love being able to fold down the dividers to make room for larger items. I drink wine everyday and don't have to do them separately now. I just add them to the top and fold down the stemware holder. I usually put my large chef knives on top so protect the knife. I have even been able to put my heavier plastic bowls up against one of the edges of the bottom rack without any problems. (I'm not reccomending this- just commenting). I do wish it had a dish warmer or extra dry cycle, because most of my plastic items in the top do not dry completely .I also cook a lot for for (12-20) at least once a month and I would love to be able to prewarm the plates. I understand the drying problem is common for the models that don't have the exposed heating element.( mine doesn't). this includes all brands per my retail store salesperson.
Phillis's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Imalone, Wisconsin: - October 30, 2013
My Electrolux dishwasher has llived up to all the reasons I purchased it. It is so very quiet and adjustable racks accomodate even large bowls and pans, it does as super job cleaning, even delicate things like wine glasses. Another reason I bought this dishwasher is the leak detection system which is especially important if one has a hardwood kitchen floor as I do. Electrolux should advertise this feature more as many homes now have hardwood kitchen floors
Mike's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Dead Woman Crossing, Wyoming: - October 30, 2013
We Love our Electrolux Dishwasher. With open concept design in home building it is nearly impossible to sit in the living room and watch T.V. with other dishwashers running... With the Electrolux EIDW6105 you never een know it is on. The racks are Heavy duty not like any other models we looked at and we really love the cleanlyness of our dishes. Thanks Electrolux!!
Kathleen's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Chugwater, Wyoming: - October 30, 2013

This dishwasher is simply amazing. We wanted quiet and got it. The price was worth it in the end.
Patti 's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Los Angeles , California: - November 10, 2011
Quiet is an understatement - you'd don't even know you have a dishwasher in the kitchen except that your dishes are immaculate.
Sarah's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Queens, NY: - November 10, 2011
I love my dishwasher! It is so quiet! I used to have a dishwasher that was so loud. I can watch tv in my family room that is next to my kitchen while the dishwasher is running and I don't hear it! It is wonderful! It does such a great job cleaning my dishes. I just love it!
Terry's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Bronx, NY: - November 10, 2011
If quiet is what you are looking for then this is the model to get. It washes dishes beautifully and looks great too. I think the only thing I would do differently if I were to purchase now would be to buy the model that is just a little more expensive - but has the indicator light that shines on the floor. Because this machine is so quiet - I can not tell if it is on or not. The light would then let me know. But we have had it now for a couple of years and it is a great machine.

This has to be the quietest running appliance ever! I love it's huge capacity too! Everything fits in it easily! If I could change anything about this dishwasher... it would be to add the feature that tells you when it's finished. I later found out that there is a model out that glows a blue light directly onto the floor when complete. I wished I had known sooner about that feature, but other than that... I wouldn't change a thing. I have to listen closely to know when it's done. It's a great dishwasher. I would recommend it for sure.
Argus's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from houston, Texas: - November 10, 2011
It would take forever to do dishes by hand, missing all my favorite TV shows. My back would hurt and I would have to take breaks. Now all I do is put the dirty dishes in my Electrolux dishwasher and forget about it. My Electrolux dishwasher is so beautiful and I'm going to remodel my whole kitchen around it.

Jeff's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from brooklyn, NY: - November 10, 2011
This dishwasher is amazing. I was told it was quiet, but the first time I used it, I thought it wasn't working. I was ready to call and complain. Then I put my ear against the door and heard a slight humming. Not only is it quiet, but it also cleans. I've always "precleaned" dishes prior to loading them in my previous dishwasher. Not with this washer! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality dishwasher.

Cathy's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Dallas,Texas: - November 10, 2011
We love how quite the diswasher is. At time we find ourselves putting our ear next to it to see if it is really running. We were not 100% happy with how clean some of the loads came out but after calling Electolux and them recommending Finish diswasher soap dishes have been coming out much cleaner.
Jim's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Las Vegas, Nevada: - November 10, 2011
Friends bragged about other brands. I was exhausted from comparing. I went to Lowe's and went through each brand and this had every single thing I was looking for. I have never owned an electrolux large appliance. It is very quiet, love that. The first time I used it, I had to put my ear to it to make sure it was on.

Jennifer Monreal's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Hallandale Beach, FL: - May 6, 2011
This dishwasher has helped me out A LOT. I have friends who come over purposely for food and leave the dishes in the sink. At the end of the day, I have a sink full of dishes. Now that I have this dishwasher, I no longer have to wash each individual dish.
Hannah McKenzie's Electrolux EIDW6105GS Review from Detroit, MI: - April 15, 2011
The EIDW6105GS is one of the best dishwashers. Ever. Not only is it Energy Star qualified but it has 6 wash cycles and four options to dry. The large capacity and stainless steel interior is a huge plus.

I love this dishwasher! I had a LG first that I had just over a year, I had 3 service calls done on it and dumped it. I bought this Electrolux. I just paid for them to hook it up. I started it up with a load of dishes and I thought it was broken it was so quiet! I couldn't believe it! When it chimed letting me know it was done, I opened it up and not a single dish was wet or had food stuck to them. I have owned this dishwasher now for 6 months, and the only regret is not spending the extra $ before.

How a Dishwasher Works

When purchasing a dishwasher, there are a few things to keep in mind.  In order to choose the best features for you and your family, you must decide how often you will use the dishwasher and what you will be washing. Another thing to take into account is how much energy and water each model will use.  We suggest purchasing an Energy Star model.

The Soap and Detergent Association recommends a water temperature of more than 130 degrees Fahrenheit, and other sources recommend temperatures up to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it very important for a dishwasher to be able to reach high temperatures. Having a high-temperature cycle (or rinse) will ensure that you sanitize the dishwasher's contents. You can also look for dishwashers with an option called NSF sanitizing rinse. The NSF national standard establishes evaluation criteria to ensure residential dishwashers clean and sanitize dishes effectively to help prevent food borne illness. Some models have internal water heaters which raise water temperatures to 160 degrees Fahrenheit thus allowing a household to keep the water heater turned down to an energy saving 120-degrees and get the desired results from a dishwasher.

  • If you plan on using the dishwasher more then one time each day, it is recommended to purchase one with an accelerated wash cycle and a thermal heating feature to quickly dry dishes
  • If you bake or host big parties, you should choose a model with adjustable racks to fit baking sheets and party platters. Find Adjustable Rack Dishwashers Here
  • If it takes you a week to dirty enough dishes to wash one load, look for a model with the option to wash the top-rack only or the bottom-rack only
  • If you have a large family, you should select a dishwasher with a higher capacity, such as a tall tub design. You may also want to consider a dishwasher that has adjustable racks and a capacity of up to 15 place settings at a time. Find Large Capacity Dishwashers Here.

    A number of models include a built-in food disposal. Other models paired this built-in food disposal with other features such as multidirectional spray jets and rinse-and-soak cycles. These features can save you the hassle of hand-rinsing dishes, glasses and flatware before placing them into a dishwasher. If dishes are pre-rinsed using a dishwasher pre-rinse cycle, approximately one gallon of water is used compared to 25 gallons of water pre-rinsing in the sink.

    There are a few dishwashers with self-cleaning filter systems. If the dishwasher does not have this feature then you will need to manually empty the filter periodically, Failure to do so can negatively affect daily performance, as well as increase the likelihood of damage to the machine.

    Below is a list of the main features of a Dishwasher:

  • Auto-Clean/Sensor A mechanism within the machine that is intended to adjust water levels to the soil of the dishes
  • Automatic Temperature Control Heats the water as it enters the machine, insuring proper water temperature.
  • Child Lock-Out Feature Prevents children from operating the unit.
  • Controls Both mechanical and electronic controls are common.


    Dishwashers Controls

  • Cycles Three cycles (light, normal, and heavy) will handle most loads. Some models offer many more, but three should be sufficient. The most important dishwashing cycles are Light, Regular, Pots & Pans and Econo settings. The econo cycle will air dry dishes saving on heating element energy costs. Enhanced cycles such as Glass or Stemware, Rinse, Quick Wash, Pots Scrub and Sanitize Wash are features you want to have, but expect to pay more. A stainless steel dishwasher interior is a beautiful feature but will not improve washing performance - it is mainly a style option. However, a stainless steel dishwasher washing arm will not rust and will be more durable.

    Dishwasher Performance Features Performance is influenced by the number of washing levels - how and where the jets of water are distributed during the dishwashing cycle. A three tier system will provide a good washing and more levels will ensure even better coverage, but price will be influenced. A 'quiet' package is also a good feature. Dishwasher detergent and rinse agent dispensers are usually standard features and a detergent dispense system ensures the right amount to clean the load. Electronic dirt sensors are definitely nice-to-have features. A child safety lock is important if you have small children.
