Up4Fun's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Braintree, Massachusetts: - October 30, 2013
I have truly grown to depend on this dishwasher. One of the features that attracted me was its interior versatility. Combine that with the range of wash cycles and I can use it for anything and everything.The exterior appearance fits perfectly in my contemporary kitchen. I have had several issues requiring service and I must say that Electrolux has been very good at handling parts replacement quickly. I would encourage purchasers to invest in the extended warranty for this unit. I had to have the electronics replaced during the 2nd year of service and although it presented a slight inconvenience, the service technicians recommended by Electrolux were excellent and parts replacement was timely.

Jay Bee's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from What Cheer, Iowa: - October 30, 2013
Have had this for about 8 months. REALLY quiet - this is the best feature of the washer. Touch controls easy to understand and use. Two criticiisms - first , if dirty dishes left in waher for a few days, these don't get cleaned well - dried on food does not get washed off. Second, using liquid dishwasher soap leaves soap residue on whatever dish is in the lower rack closest to the soap dispenser. Have had glasses with a large streaki of soap on them after a normal wash cycle.
Vetteman's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Hopeulikit, Georgia: - October 30, 2013
A great dishwasher, and so quiet too ! I love the blue indicator light which greets me when I enter the dark kitchen at night. The style blends with my appliances and looks sleek and modern. Only drawback was the door handle. When opened it almost hit the floor. I did like the basket designs which make for easy fill. All in all, a great machine. There was a little problem with losing the display panel which had to be replaced,
HDJ's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Enigma, Georgia: - October 30, 2013
oh my god I love this dishwasher I don't think an appliance has ever made me this happy. I took out two of the baskets (and those 4 brown clips on top rack - not sure what they're for) to make room for more dishes - which is the great part, it's very flexible for what you need to wash. It's so quiet I can't even tell it's on - and my dishes have never come out this clean before.
Zetasoul's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Slickpoo, Idaho: - October 30, 2013
DESIGN This is a beautifully designed dishwasher. The stainless steel quality is superior and nothing felt cheap. FEATURES It has a control panel (wave-touch) that you changes different display options depending on the mode that you're in. This eliminate the need for a large amount of buttons and keep things minimal and simple. There are also a lot of options for different types of dishes and valuable stemware. For everyday use, the auto wash function will determine the amount of soiled dishes you have and adjust the options accordingly. There are two adjustable dish racks that will allow you washing big and tall items without too much fuss. The two tabs allow you to raise and lower the top rack, it's really simple. Another neat and simple feature is when it's done washing and drying the dishes, a blue LED light will shine on the floor to let you know that it is ready to be unload. PERFORMANCE Like I said, this dishwasher has many different options that you can tweak. If you have well water, this dishwasher will allow you to program high pressure water or even increase the water temperature. The first time I turned this on, I thought it was broken because I didn't hear anything running. But it is working, only super quiet! The only time you will hear anything is the water draining from the dishwasher into the drainage. Other than that the dishwasher is the quietest appliance you will ever hear (or not hear).
Jim's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Ocheesee, Florida: - October 30, 2013
We replaced another dishwasher of different manufacture because it was not performing. We chose the Electrolux because of its reviews and being a cosmetic twin to our Electrolux Wine Fridge which is another superb product. The Electrolux dishwasher was the most expensive of the ones we looked at but the reason became highly obvious. This is a very serious piece of kitchen technology. It cleans dishes, all the dishes, all the time, and I mean spotlessly clean. The Wave Touch controls are superb and you can choose from a huge range of cleaning options. The interior is massive and the top rack is so adjustable you can wash any size pot you have. The lower racks fold flat for another big range of options. The side cutlery and specialty holders are easily added, removed, or moved around. This machine chimes and shines a blue light on the floor when it is done because you cannot hear this thing running. It is absolutely dead quiet. Until you have experienced a product like this you just have no idea what you are missing.
Vic's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Breakneck, Connecticut: - October 30, 2013
Quiet, Quiet Quiet! Can't tell its running! But it does run quite well. Totally clean dishes, pots, pans - everything. Lots of cleaning options. Lots of loading options. We searched long and hard, Compared this Electrolux model against all of the leadig brands. We picked it over the others and we were glad we did. Did I mention that it looks nice too?
Jonas's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Stinking Bay, Arkansas: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher is great! Cleans everything perfect and when it runs you can barely hear it. The only thing that could be improved is display - it shows remaining washing time only when you open the door while itís running so you need to interrupt the cycle. I would prefer to see it all the time. Anyhow itís a great product like everything else made by Electrolux.

Katie's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Houston, TX: - October 30, 2013
The first time I used this dishwasher I honestly could not tell if it was really on. I had to place my hand on the door for a few seconds to convince myself it was working because I could not hear it. It is amazingly quiet. I love the variety of choices I have to set the wash cycles and all the options I have. It's great!
Bbc's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Syosset, NY: - October 30, 2013
Our Electrolux dishwasher is SO quiet and is easy to use. I love the functionality as well as the ease of adjusting the top rack and plate dividers. It has a nice, clean look.
Charles's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Jamaica, NY: - October 30, 2013
Did we turn it on? Is it actually running? Those are the questions you'll be asking yourself with this truly outstanding and very quiet dishwasher. It is one appliance that we purchased over the last 30 years that has truly exceeded our expectations. The well designed interior offers many dish-arranging options combined with a broad array of operating and cleaning cycles. The Wave touch feature is easy to operate and makes no controls visible when the door is closed. That's a great aesthetic option which makes this stainless steel dishwasher a handsome and impressive addition to any kitchen. When shopping around, you will soon discover, as I did, that this Electrolux is the best value and well worth the price.
Bob's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from San Antonio, TX: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher is so quiet that you need to put your ear on the door to determine if it is operating. The engineering and construction is superb. The cost is higher than many other brands, but well worth every dollar in looks, controls simplicity, quality, and quietness.
Pat's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Boston, MA: - October 30, 2013
This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever seen. I can see why it needs a light to shine on the floor when it's finished. In addition to being quiet the size and versatility of the inside is just as impressive. The racks have an unlimited number of configurations to allow just about any size or shape item to be washed The interior is very large to allow oversized loads and still clean without a problem. It is definitely worth the money.
doll's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Hackensack, NJ: - October 30, 2013
This is amazing to say the least. It is so sleek in the stainless and is so quite there is a blue light that shines on the floor to let you know it is finished! Isn't that great! Well I guess the main thing is how well does it clean? I can tell you no matter which cycle you choose and there are many cycles to choose from your dishes come out clean everytime. I have never owned a dishwasher that I just want to show off! Love it! A very big plus is that Electrolux stands behind every product they make and are always there for anything. Thank you Electrolux!
Nelson's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Bridgeport, CT: - October 30, 2013
Installed this dishwasher as a replacement, so far we're very impress with the performance and features. My wife used to complain about the old dishwasher now she loves to do the dishes.
BrettC's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Sun City, SC: - October 30, 2013
Expensive, but definitely high-end. Literally "whisper-quiet"; was able to carry on a whispered conversation within 10 feet of the dishwasher, mid-cycle. Tall tub with huge capacity, though this means the bottom of the tub is a couple of inches lower than a conventional machine. Worth getting used to. Clean design, solid feel. Door clicks open and closed without a latch button, and feels very secure. Blue light to indicate complete cycle is cool. My only complaint is that there is nothing to indicate the machine is running. This sounds like a silly quibble until you understand how incredibly quiet it is. Very easy to open it up mid-cycle. Perhaps a discreet red LED to shine on the floor while it runs? Absolutely my only complaint.
Corvette's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Long Beach, CA: - October 30, 2013
I read a lot of negative reviews of this dishwasher before I bought it. I'm glad i didn't take the advice of those that said not to buy it. This dishwasher could not be easier to use. Set it and forget it, which, by the way, is easy to do because this is the QUIETEST dishwasher I have ever owned. Nuff said about that. The capacity is unmatched by any dishwasher I have ever owned and i have owned several in the past 10 years. Got rid of a Bosch for this one and couldn't be happier. The quality of the wash is as good as any i have seen. Not perfect, but close. Dishes are always dry at the end of the cycle. Great dishwasher, i recommend it.
Ted's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Old Lyme, CT: - November 23, 2012
Door does not stay where you place it as advertised. You need to slide out the bottom drawer completely to keep the door fully open. Sometimes the door pops open and dishwasher needs to be closed again to restart cycle.
Mac's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Dallas, Texas: - November 10, 2011
We love our new dishwasher. It's so quiet that sometimes we are not sure if it started. It always gets everything sooo clean.

Sunny's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Orlando, Florida: - November 10, 2011
This dishwasher is a dream in that it is the quietest and most efficient washer I've ever had. I was so impressed with it at the beginning when I first bought it in 2008 that I persevered through 2 replacements due to service issues with Sears over the last 2 years.(The first time was a lack of parts for the turbidity sensor, the second was a constant tiny leak that Sears could not repair and took 4months and 9 home visits.)This 3rd replacement has been no trouble and works great, validating my hope that the bugs that occur with most new models are now fixed.
Trish's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Phoenix, Arizona: - November 10, 2011
This dishwasher is awesome! It cleans and sanitizes to perfection. It is so quiet sometimes I have to open it to see if it is really working. I love that I can put taller things in as well. I had to experiment with different loading techniques to get the best results like not "spooning" bowls too close together. The grids in the silverware tray may take a few seconds longer to load silverware but the results are worth every piece coming out clean every time. My daughter replaced their supposedly quiet (NOT) Kitchenaid with this amazing dishwasher after hearing me rave about ours.
Steve's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Phoenix, Arizona: - November 10, 2011
The dishwasher is so quiet, people ask if you turned it on. It has multiple cycles to accomodate when it is just two people to 16. We are definitely Electrolux fans!!!

Daniel Flowers's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from New Berlin, WI: - April 30, 2011
As a college freshmen with 3 roommates, no one wants to clean up after themselves and as a result, the dishes pile up. After much debating, we decided to get a dish washer. We ended up getting this one and it's been a huge help. We actually have dishes to use now. I highly recommend this product.

Another neat and simple feature is when it's done washing and drying the dishes, a blue LED light will shine on the floor to let you know that it is ready to be unload. PERFORMANCE Like I said, this dishwasher has many different options that you can tweak. If you have well water, this dishwasher will allow you to program high pressure water or even increase the water temperature. The first time I turned this on, I thought it was broken because I didn't hear anything running. But it is working, only super quiet! The only time you will hear anything is the water draining from the dishwasher into the drainage. Other than that the dishwasher is the quietest appliance you will ever hear (or not hear).
Jim's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Ocheesee, Florida: - October 30, 2013
We replaced another dishwasher of different manufacture because it was not performing. We chose the Electrolux because of its reviews and being a cosmetic twin to our Electrolux Wine Fridge which is another superb product. The Electrolux dishwasher was the most expensive of the ones we looked at but the reason became highly obvious. This is a very serious piece of kitchen technology. It cleans dishes, all the dishes, all the time, and I mean spotlessly clean. The Wave Touch controls are superb and you can choose from a huge range of cleaning options. The interior is massive and the top rack is so adjustable you can wash any size pot you have. The lower racks fold flat for another big range of options. The side cutlery and specialty holders are easily added, removed, or moved around. This machine chimes and shines a blue light on the floor when it is done because you cannot hear this thing running. It is absolutely dead quiet. Until you have experienced a product like this you just have no idea what you are missing.
Vic's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Breakneck, Connecticut: - October 30, 2013
Quiet, Quiet Quiet! Can't tell its running! But it does run quite well. Totally clean dishes, pots, pans - everything. Lots of cleaning options. Lots of loading options. We searched long and hard, Compared this Electrolux model against all of the leadig brands. We picked it over the others and we were glad we did. Did I mention that it looks nice too?
Jonas's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Stinking Bay, Arkansas: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher is great! Cleans everything perfect and when it runs you can barely hear it. The only thing that could be improved is display - it shows remaining washing time only when you open the door while itís running so you need to interrupt the cycle. I would prefer to see it all the time. Anyhow itís a great product like everything else made by Electrolux.

Katie's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Houston, TX: - October 30, 2013
The first time I used this dishwasher I honestly could not tell if it was really on. I had to place my hand on the door for a few seconds to convince myself it was working because I could not hear it. It is amazingly quiet. I love the variety of choices I have to set the wash cycles and all the options I have. It's great!
Bbc's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Syosset, NY: - October 30, 2013
Our Electrolux dishwasher is SO quiet and is easy to use. I love the functionality as well as the ease of adjusting the top rack and plate dividers. It has a nice, clean look.
Charles's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Jamaica, NY: - October 30, 2013
Did we turn it on? Is it actually running? Those are the questions you'll be asking yourself with this truly outstanding and very quiet dishwasher. It is one appliance that we purchased over the last 30 years that has truly exceeded our expectations. The well designed interior offers many dish-arranging options combined with a broad array of operating and cleaning cycles. The Wave touch feature is easy to operate and makes no controls visible when the door is closed. That's a great aesthetic option which makes this stainless steel dishwasher a handsome and impressive addition to any kitchen. When shopping around, you will soon discover, as I did, that this Electrolux is the best value and well worth the price.
Bob's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from San Antonio, TX: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher is so quiet that you need to put your ear on the door to determine if it is operating. The engineering and construction is superb. The cost is higher than many other brands, but well worth every dollar in looks, controls simplicity, quality, and quietness.
Pat's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Boston, MA: - October 30, 2013
This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever seen. I can see why it needs a light to shine on the floor when it's finished. In addition to being quiet the size and versatility of the inside is just as impressive. The racks have an unlimited number of configurations to allow just about any size or shape item to be washed The interior is very large to allow oversized loads and still clean without a problem. It is definitely worth the money.
doll's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Hackensack, NJ: - October 30, 2013
This is amazing to say the least. It is so sleek in the stainless and is so quite there is a blue light that shines on the floor to let you know it is finished! Isn't that great! Well I guess the main thing is how well does it clean? I can tell you no matter which cycle you choose and there are many cycles to choose from your dishes come out clean everytime. I have never owned a dishwasher that I just want to show off! Love it! A very big plus is that Electrolux stands behind every product they make and are always there for anything. Thank you Electrolux!
Nelson's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Bridgeport, CT: - October 30, 2013
Installed this dishwasher as a replacement, so far we're very impress with the performance and features. My wife used to complain about the old dishwasher now she loves to do the dishes.
BrettC's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Sun City, SC: - October 30, 2013
Expensive, but definitely high-end. Literally "whisper-quiet"; was able to carry on a whispered conversation within 10 feet of the dishwasher, mid-cycle. Tall tub with huge capacity, though this means the bottom of the tub is a couple of inches lower than a conventional machine. Worth getting used to. Clean design, solid feel. Door clicks open and closed without a latch button, and feels very secure. Blue light to indicate complete cycle is cool. My only complaint is that there is nothing to indicate the machine is running. This sounds like a silly quibble until you understand how incredibly quiet it is. Very easy to open it up mid-cycle. Perhaps a discreet red LED to shine on the floor while it runs? Absolutely my only complaint.
Corvette's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Long Beach, CA: - October 30, 2013
I read a lot of negative reviews of this dishwasher before I bought it. I'm glad i didn't take the advice of those that said not to buy it. This dishwasher could not be easier to use. Set it and forget it, which, by the way, is easy to do because this is the QUIETEST dishwasher I have ever owned. Nuff said about that. The capacity is unmatched by any dishwasher I have ever owned and i have owned several in the past 10 years. Got rid of a Bosch for this one and couldn't be happier. The quality of the wash is as good as any i have seen. Not perfect, but close. Dishes are always dry at the end of the cycle. Great dishwasher, i recommend it.
Ted's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Old Lyme, CT: - November 23, 2012
Door does not stay where you place it as advertised. You need to slide out the bottom drawer completely to keep the door fully open. Sometimes the door pops open and dishwasher needs to be closed again to restart cycle.
Mac's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Dallas, Texas: - November 10, 2011
We love our new dishwasher. It's so quiet that sometimes we are not sure if it started. It always gets everything sooo clean.
Zack's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Queens,NY: - November 10, 2011
oh my god I love this dishwasher I don't think an appliance has ever made me this happy. I took out two of the baskets (and those 4 brown clips on top rack - not sure what they're for) to make room for more dishes - which is the great part, it's very flexible for what you need to wash. It's so quiet I can't even tell it's on - and my dishes have never come out this clean before.
Zetasoul's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from San Diego, California: - November 10, 2011
DESIGN This is a beautifully designed dishwasher. The stainless steel quality is superior and nothing felt cheap. FEATURES It has a control panel (wave-touch) that you changes different display options depending on the mode that you're in. This eliminate the need for a large amount of buttons and keep things minimal and simple. There are also a lot of options for different types of dishes and valuable stemware. For everyday use, the auto wash function will determine the amount of soiled dishes you have and adjust the options accordingly. There are two adjustable dish racks that will allow you washing big and tall items without too much fuss. The two tabs allow you to raise and lower the top rack, it's really simple. Another neat and simple feature is when it's done washing and drying the dishes, a blue LED light will shine on the floor to let you know that it is ready to be unload.

Sunny's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Orlando, Florida: - November 10, 2011
This dishwasher is a dream in that it is the quietest and most efficient washer I've ever had. I was so impressed with it at the beginning when I first bought it in 2008 that I persevered through 2 replacements due to service issues with Sears over the last 2 years.(The first time was a lack of parts for the turbidity sensor, the second was a constant tiny leak that Sears could not repair and took 4months and 9 home visits.)This 3rd replacement has been no trouble and works great, validating my hope that the bugs that occur with most new models are now fixed.
Trish's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Phoenix, Arizona: - November 10, 2011
This dishwasher is awesome! It cleans and sanitizes to perfection. It is so quiet sometimes I have to open it to see if it is really working. I love that I can put taller things in as well. I had to experiment with different loading techniques to get the best results like not "spooning" bowls too close together. The grids in the silverware tray may take a few seconds longer to load silverware but the results are worth every piece coming out clean every time. My daughter replaced their supposedly quiet (NOT) Kitchenaid with this amazing dishwasher after hearing me rave about ours.
Steve's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Phoenix, Arizona: - November 10, 2011
The dishwasher is so quiet, people ask if you turned it on. It has multiple cycles to accomodate when it is just two people to 16. We are definitely Electrolux fans!!!

Jack's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Brick,NJ: - November 10, 2011
I have truly grown to depend on this dishwasher. One of the features that attracted me was its interior versatility. Combine that with the range of wash cycles and I can use it for anything and everything.The exterior appearance fits perfectly in my contemporary kitchen. I have had several issues requiring service and I must say that Electrolux has been very good at handling parts replacement quickly. I would encourage purchasers to invest in the extended warranty for this unit. I had to have the electronics replaced during the 2nd year of service and although it presented a slight inconvenience, the service technicians recommended by Electrolux were excellent and parts replacement was timely.
Sivi's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Queens,NY: - November 10, 2011
don't think I've never seen a dishwasher that's as quiet as ours. It's so quiet, that sometimes I forget that it's even running. Simply amazing. Looks good and works well. What more can you ask for?

Miguel A. Cannon's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Ahoskie, NC: - May 6, 2011
In all my experiences with dish washers, this is my best one yet. It not only has 9 wash cycles but it has five options during the drying cycle. It also has a huge capacity for dishes and a silenec rating of 45 dB.
Aurora Frosen's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from Gaithersburg, MD: - April 26, 2011
This is one of the best dishwashers I've had. Not only does it have 9 wash cycles, it has the largest capacity out of all the dishwashers I've had. I highly recommend this product.
Daniel Flowers's Electrolux EWDW6505GS Review from New Berlin, WI: - April 30, 2011
As a college freshmen with 3 roommates, no one wants to clean up after themselves and as a result, the dishes pile up. After much debating, we decided to get a dish washer. We ended up getting this one and it's been a huge help. We actually have dishes to use now. I highly recommend this product.

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.


  • Energy Star Qualified
    Energy Star Dishwashers To see our assortment of energy star dishwashers, click here.

    The unit meets the new federal energy consumption guidelines. This feature allows you to save money and help conserve energy. ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers use at least 41 percent less energy than the federal minimum standard for energy consumption. These dishwashers use “smart” features such as effective washing action, energy-efficient motors, and sensors that determine the necessary cycle length and water temperature.

  • Filter
    Dishwasher Filter
    Removes small food particles from the wash water. Some models require that you remove the filter regularly for cleaning.


  • Food Grinder/Disposal
    Dishwasher Grinder
    Removes large pieces of food from inside the unit.

  • Rinse Aid Dispenser
    Dishwasher Rinse Aid Dispenser
    Automatically dispenses the rinse aid to speed drying and help eliminate spotting. Some dispensers automatically adjust the amount of aid dispensed to the hardness of the water.

  • Time Delay A feature that delays operation up to 12 hours. This allows you to take advantage of off-peak electric rates and to use hot water at a time when it is not being used by other household members.
  • Tub Materials Both plastic and stainless steel are common. Plastic is cheaper, but may crack or discolor. Stainless steel will not.
