Since 2020, dishwashers have been the least available appliances.

We update this article multiple times a year to reflect availability. In our last update, the only available Miele dishwasher was their $4,250 ProLine model.

Miele dishwashers are generally available now while Bosch dishwashers are not.

In this article, you will learn the ten best dishwashers to consider right now. "Right now" is a relative, ever-changing term.

After reading this article, your key takeaway is this: There are plenty of worthwhile dishwashers and brands to consider other than a Bosch, Miele, or KitchenAid dishwasher.

Best Dishwashers for 2023

Best Dishwasher Under $650: Beko DUT25401X - $629


Number of Cycles: 5 Cycles, 6 Options | Sound Level: 48 dB | Drying: Condensation Dry| Third Rack: No | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

Beko is a huge appliance manufacturer based out of Turkey. They are well known in Europe for their clean styling. You may know Blomberg, a subsidiary of Beko. Beko also manufactures Viking dishwashers.

At one time, you had to compromise build quality and features when you bought a dishwasher for under $700. There were fewer cycles, and the tub was plastic or a hybrid of plastic and steel. Dishwashers under $700 were also loud.

Beko is an exception, with decent cycles and an all-stainless tub. The DUT25401X dishwasher’s silence rating is not horrendous at 48 decibels (dB), only 4 dB louder than what is considered quiet. If you have an open kitchen, you will hear this dishwasher running.

This Beko dishwasher has five cycles and options, a soil sensor, and an adjustable upper rack. The upper rack has three height options to accommodate taller glasses or large plates.

Drawbacks: While we’ve seen low service rates for Beko dishwashers in the past, you must ensure your dishwasher or any Beko appliance can be fixed in your area. Additionally, there is no cycle for delicate dishware.

Most Reliable: LG LDB4548ST - $899


Number of Cycles: 9 Cycles, 8 Options | Sound Level: 48 dB | Drying: Hybrid Condensing Drying System| Third Rack: No | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

LG is still one of the most reliable dishwasher brands, according to just under 40,000 service calls logged by our service department last year.

This dishwasher has tons of cycles, adjustable racks, and Wi-Fi capability. If you want a hassle-free dishwasher, then consider the LG LDB4548ST.

If you're interested in the next model up, the LG LDP6810SS has steam and a height-adjustable third rack for $1,099. It also features LG's "QuadWash" system with four rotating wash arms to wash your dishes from multiple angles.

What's more, the LG LDP6810SS drops down to nearly the same price as the LG LDB4548ST during promotional holidays.

Drawbacks: At 48 dB, you will hear the LDB4548ST dishwasher in an open kitchen. In addition, this LG dishwasher does not have a third rack.

Best New Dishwashers to Consider: GE Profile PDP755SYRFS ($948) and PDT755SYRFS ($948)


Number of Cycles: 5 Cycles, 11 Options | Sound Level: 42 dB | Drying: Heated Drying with Fan Assist | Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Disposer Only

GE Profile redesigned its dishwasher for 2022 and returned it to the drawing board. GE Profile added their successful odor, mold, and moisture prevention package in their laundry to this new line of dishwashers.

They now feature antimicrobial Microban surfaces (even on the outside handle and interior filters) and a fan to circulate fresh air into the dishwasher to reduce moisture and bacteria.

Their washing system adds four spray jets for silverware and bottles. My daughter is now five years old, but that would have been handy for her baby bottles caked at the bottom with formula.

They improved their drying system with a fan to remove excess moisture by pulling out moist air from the dishwasher. GE Profile claims this dries even plastics three times better than a standard heated drying system.

For a quiet dishwasher, which is essential if your kitchen is open to your living room, GE Profile is 42 dB. Unlike every quiet dishwasher, GE Profile is still quiet with a hard food disposer.

Drawbacks: It is hard to know how reliable this dishwasher is since it is so new. Also, it will not look good with a custom cabinet front because this dishwasher protrudes past your cabinets and does not sit seamlessly.

Quietest Dishwashers (Tie): Beko DDT39434X ($1,399) & KitchenAid KDTE204KPS ($1,049)

Beko DDT39432X - $1,399


Number of Cycles: 9 Cycles, 5 Options | Sound Level: 39 dB | Drying: Condensation Dry| Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

Beko is the fastest-growing brand at Yale partly because Beko has been available more than most brands.

The models changed last year to include Beko's new "CornerIntense" wash system. It washes in a square pattern (rather than round) to cover every area of the dishwasher.

Not to mention, Beko loaded this dishwasher with features.

AquaIntense is another set of concentrated sprays at the bottom to scour dishes. You can use the CornerIntense system with the AquaIntense cycle channeling up to 60% of the water on the bottom, leaving a light wash for China and crystal.

Their IonGuard eliminates odors by sending negatively electric-charged ions to counteract the positive ions of odors.

Beko's rack design is good as well. You can remove the third rack for silverware for more capacity. This way, you can accommodate larger glasses or bowls on the middle rack, for example.

Like the GE Profile dishwasher, Beko has three concentrated sprays on the top to wash bottles.

Beko also uses a quieter inverter motor for a 39 dB dishwasher rating. A scouring arm adds noise, but Beko designed it to be quiet.

Lastly, you may be more comfortable with familiar brands. In case of availability issues, and there will be some, Beko is an excellent alternative and has been statistically reliable.

KitchenAid KDTE204KPS - $1,149


Number of Cycles: 5 Cycles, 7 Options | Sound Level: 39 dB | Drying: Condensation Dry & Heating Element | Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

The KitchenAid KDTE204KPS has its ProWash cycle. ProWash is an extended cycle with soil sensing capabilities. KitchenAid features a light wash cycle for wine glasses, fine China, or an express wash.

At 39 dB, it is almost noiseless.

Drawbacks: You buy KitchenAid for its silence rating. The cycles, options, and drying capabilities are standard and found in most brands.

Best Drying System: Bosch SHX78B75UC - $1,399


Number of Cycles: 7 Cycles, 7 Options | Sound Level: 42 dB | Drying: Zeolite and AutoAir Dry | Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

It sounds gimmicky, but Bosch’s CrystalDry drying system works. The CrystalDry system uses a volcanic element called zeolite to increase heat and absorb moisture.

As skeptical as we were, it does dry even plastics (plastics are less dense and tend not to dry as well as ceramic or glass). It is quiet and efficient with good racking.

Bosch’s wash system features PrecisionWash. This system uses sensors to monitor the water during the wash cycle and automatically adjust it so your dishes get the best cleaning.

Drawbacks: Bosch's washing system is standard, aside from its PrecisionWash feature. Other dishwashers in this price range, like Miele, for example, has a full spray arm up top and a different third rack.

Strongest Brand Reputation: Miele G 5056 SCVi SFP - $1,499


Number of Cycles: 6 Cycles | Sound Level: 44 dB | Drying: Condensation Drying | Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

Miele is back in stock after 13 months. They introduced the G 5000 and G 7000 series dishwashers but did not have either available.

Aside from their recent lack of availability, Miele makes excellent dishwashers. Their G 5000 series may not have the same unique features as Beko, GE Profile, or LG, but their washing, drying, and racking features are amongst the best.

They still are a family-owned company manufacturing out of Germany. They produce not just the dishwasher but almost all the componentry parts.

At 44 DB, Miele meets the quietness standard.

Miele dishwashers have three full-wash arms. Most will have two or two and a sprinkler head. This dishwasher has the standard dishwasher cycles plus a few unique cycles, like the 58-minute QuickIntenseWash for lightly soiled dishes.

ExtraClean and ExtraDry increase the temperature in the main wash and final rinse.

Like most premium dishwashers, this dishwasher has a third rack on the top for silverware. Third` racks will leave more room at the bottom for plates and silverware. Unlike others, the silverware is secured and will not scratch during the wash.

Miele has a simple but effective drying system. The port on the bottom allows cooler air into the side of the dishwasher from your kitchen. The hotter, steamier air is attracted to the cooler side and is then dissipated as water.

Drawbacks: The main drawback to a Miele dishwasher is availability. It also has no new features like TrueSteam from LG or Microban technology from GE Profile. Nor does it have a better drying system than Bosch’s dishwasher with CrystalDry.

Most Popular: Miele G 5266 SCVi SFP - $1,749


Number of Cycles: 6 Cycles | Sound Level: 42 dB | Drying: Condensation Drying| Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

The Miele G 5266 SCVi SFP is the most fully featured dishwasher of the G 5000 series. It has all the features of the G 5056 but adds a few more cycles, like SensorDry, a better third rack design, and a better silence rating.

With SensorDry, Miele’s dishwasher uses sensors to check the temperature of the dishwasher against the room temperature. It will then automatically adjust the rinse temperature for better drying results.

In addition, the G 5266 dishwasher will pop open at the end of the wash cycle to release heat and moisture to speed up the drying process. A few brands have a similar feature, but Miele was the first with AutoOpen drying.

As for rack design, the 3D MultiFlex Tray allows you to fit more small dishes and cups with adjustable side sections and a sunken central section. The left side can be pushed to the right to create more space on the upper basket, while the right section is height adjustable for smaller plates and cups.

Lastly, the silence rating drops down to 42 dB, just below the quietness standard.

Most Unique: Fisher & Paykel DD24DAX9 - $1,799


Number of Cycles: 6 Cycles, 6 Options | Sound Level: 45 dB | Drying: Fan Assisted Drying | Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

You may have noticed all the other dishwashers have a single door. Fisher & Paykel has two pull-out drawers. Drawers could be good or bad.

You are not bending down to reach the top drawer like you would for the other dishwashers on this list. You can do a half load with just one drawer. However, drawers load differently than a regular dishwasher, so you may or may not like that.

Fisher & Paykel's DishDrawer is worth looking at before you buy it to decide whether you will like this dishwasher. I'd even recommend bringing a few of your most used dishes to a showroom and loading the DishDrawer to see how it loads.

Still, the Fisher & Paykel DishDrawer is worth your consideration for a unique product.

Drawbacks: With a 45 dB silence rating, you will faintly hear Fisher & Paykel's DishDrawer.

Best Overall: Miele G 7366 SCVi SF - $2,299


Number of Cycles: 11 Cycles | Sound Level: 40 dB | Drying: Condensation Drying | Third Rack: Yes | Disposer or Filter: Filter Only

The G 7366 models are the best of the G 7000 series dishwashers. The Miele G 7366 SCVi SF dishwasher has all the features of the G 5266 SCVi SFP plus:

  • A China and crystal wash cycle along with a half load cycle.
  • A 40 dB silence rating but slows the motor down for a four-hour cycle.
  • Two ports allow air into the dishwasher instead of one, along with the auto-opening door for faster drying.
  • AutoDos with PowerDisk-Automatic dispensing

I hate to use the word revolutionary when talking about a dishwasher, but Miele’s AutoDos detergent dispensing system does qualify.

It automatically dispenses the exact amount of detergent needed at the right time with its 20-load PowerDisk dispenser.

As gimmicky as it sounds, clients do report cleaner dishes.

Which Dishwasher Should You Buy?

It depends on what you are looking for and what is available. The good news is you have options, just not for a Bosch or Miele dishwasher.

Many of the lesser-known brands produce good dishwashers. The GE Profile dishwasher has mold protection, a 42 dB silence rating with a grinder, and bottle and silverware washes.

Beko is 39 dB with separate sprays jets and cycles for baked-on dishes. LG is off-the-charts for reliability with decent cycles. All are good options.

Instead of that G 7000 Miele at $1,499, buying a quieter GE Profile or Beko dishwasher for less is not that bad - at least for now.

What Can You Do About Availability Issues?

Dishwasher availability could be better right now. It isn't good. It is grim when one of the most popular brands has one dishwasher available at $4,250.

Miele, KitchenAid, and Bosch have availability problems. But before the clerk in the store says they are out of stock on a particular model, check another style of the same model number.

Bosch has four different panel styles, so if you cannot buy that SHP878, buy it as a SHE or SHX. Here are the different dishwasher faces:


Most brands have that choice as well. You may have some luck if you pick another style that is not on display.

How to Choose a Dishwasher

This section will cover the basics of how to buy a dishwasher. This includes the most reliable dishwasher brands based on real service data, how much you should pay for a quiet dishwasher, and the best features to look for.

Let's dive in.

Dishwasher Reliability 2023

LG, Bosch, Thermador, KitchenAid, and Miele are the most reliable dishwasher brands to consider.

We calculate dishwasher reliability by dividing the products we serviced by the products we sold for a service rate percentage.

Due to capacity issues, we could only service the appliances we sold.

The following service rates are based on at least 100 products sold and a total sample of over 8,000 pieces from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022.

  Service Rates
LG Electronics 3.5%
Bosch Appliances 5.1%
Thermador 5.9%
KitchenAid 6.2%
Miele 6.7%
GE Profile 7.1%
Signature Kitchen Suite 7.5%
Fisher & Paykel 9.0%
Cafe Appliances 10.3%
Beko Appliance 11.2%
Grand Total 6.8%

LG was excellent at 3.5%, but last year's number was 1.7%.

Thermador and Bosch's dishwashers are both made by BSH Home Appliances.

GE Profile and Miele were reliable, especially considering they only have high-end dishwashers. Typically, the most featured models have the most problems.

Beko spiked higher at 11.2%, but they introduced new models last year.

At 6.8%, dishwashers are more reliable than most other appliances, but still, you should check locally for the best service departments for any brand before you buy an appliance.

Plastic vs. Stainless Tub Dishwashers

Plastic-vs-Stainless-Steel-Dishwasher-TubPlastic (Left) vs. Stainless (Right) Dishwasher Tubs


The best dishwashers have stainless steel tubs rather than plastic.

Stainless steel is non-porous and will not retain odors and germs like other surfaces.

Commercial kitchens are stainless for that reason. Then again, two brands on this list have features specifically designed to reduce odors.

Beko has IonGuard technology to neutralize negative ions and counteract positive ions of odors for a fresher-smelling dishwasher.  

So many of Beko's features seem almost outlandish or "overly technical." However, they all work as specified.

GE Profile has a new dishwasher with antimicrobial surfaces and a fan to eliminate moisture. Their highly rated laundry employs the same technology.

Only Frigidaire, GE, Samsung, Whirlpool, and Maytag make dishwashers with plastic tubs.  

Most brands sell more stainless-steel tubs than plastic now. Be careful, though.

Several dishwashers may look stainless but are partly plastic, like the Bosch Ascenta and Samsung hybrid dishwashers.

American vs. European Dishwashers

Dishwashers are split between American-style models and European-style models.

American-style dishwashers used to have a grinder on the bottom. European-style dishwashers have a removable filter for a quieter silence rating.

GE Profile will offer the best of both worlds with a grinder dubbed the "Piranha" and a super quiet 42-decibel rating.

KitchenAid is an American-style dishwasher with a filter to keep its silence rating down.

European-style dishwashers also sit flush with your cabinet.  

They look best if you place a custom panel on your dishwasher. For the best panel-ready dishwashers, look at Bosch, Miele, or Beko dishwashers.

American-Style Dishwasher Brands:

  • Electrolux
  • Frigidaire
  • GE
  • Whirlpool
  • Maytag
  • Samsung
  • JennAir
  • KitchenAid

European-Style Dishwasher Brands:

  • Bosch
  • Thermador
  • Beko
  • KitchenAid (has both styles)
  • Miele

Silence Ratings

Silence ratings are important, especially if your kitchen is open to your living room. If you want a quiet dishwasher, look for a decibel level under 44 dB.

At a certain level, decibel differences are not detectable. This is an easy mistake to make. Do not overpay for just a quiet dishwasher.

That said, there are a few exceptions. Our quietest picks are both 39 dB for less than $1,000. For one decibel less, a 38 dB dishwasher typically costs $1,399 to $2,999.

Washing Performance

GE-Profile-Dishwasher-Silveware-WashGE Profile Dishwasher with a Silverware Wash System


They all wash dishes. However, some have better systems.

GE Profile has four bottle washes with direct sprays to scour the gunk out of your baby and sports bottles. They also have dedicated sprays under the silverware basket.

Miele has three full spray arms, two under each basket and one on the top.  

Beko has their new CornerIntense models to wash the outer edges better. They also have three bottle washes on top.

LG has steam to help lift off baked-on stains like my kid's macaroni and cheese. (It works. My neighbor has an LG dishwasher).

Drying Performance


Bosch Dishwasher with AutoAir Drying System


Drying has become much better in the latest models. Most high-end dishwashers use condensation or static drying.

Condensation drying uses the residual heat from the wash cycle to dry your dishes. If you buy a dishwasher with condensation drying, we recommend using Jet-Dry or a rinse aid for better drying results.

Other dishwashers used a heating element. Both drying systems did not dry plastic dishware well.

Now there are multiple types of drying systems. In Bosch's and Miele's better dishwasher models, the door opens at the end of the cycle to release heat and moisture.  

The new GE Profile dishwasher has a fan to aid in pulling moisture out of the dishwasher.

In all Miele's and the better KitchenAid M Series dishwashers, the cooler outside air is directed to the side of the dishwasher, attracting the warmer air and dissipating the moisture as water.

Bosch has the best drying dishwasher. It uses the volcanic element zeolite to add heat and dissipate moisture.

Rack Design  

Miele-G5006SCU-dishwasher-racksMiele G 7000 Series Dishwasher Rack Design


Most dishwashers over $599 have an adjustable top rack. The best dishwashers from Beko, Bosch, Miele, LG, Beko, and KitchenAid have a third rack.

Bosch has a sizeable MyWay rack to hold more than silverware. Miele has a 3D cutlery tray to hold flatware securely. It also folds down to accommodate more on the second rack.

KitchenAid may have the best solution with the largest rack. It also acts as a fourth level of spray from the rack itself.

Key Takeaways

You can look beyond Bosch and Miele for a worthwhile dishwasher.

LG, Beko, GE Profile, KitchenAid, and Fisher & Paykel are interesting considerations even when the more established brands become available.

Choose a dishwasher based on reliability, a silence rating of 44 dB or less, good rack design, and excellent drying and washing performance.

Then pick the best features that suit your lifestyle, and don't overpay for a quiet dishwasher. There are plenty of options around or below 44 dB for less than $1000.

Finally, consider repair services as part of the equation. Finding local service can become an issue after buying appliances.
