First, I will show you the differences between American and European dishwashers. Then I will show you a few incredibly discounted dishwashers.
American vs. European Dishwashers
American dishwashers have a large capacity. The door will protrude 2-3 inches from a 24-inch deep cabinet to accommodate a greater capacity than many American-style models.
European dishwashers will sit flush in a 24-inch deep cabinet. This is an attractive feature because the door will not protrude from the cabinets. If you are placing a panel on the front of your dishwasher in a 24-inch deep cabinet, I would strongly advise you to choose a European model. With a European dishwasher model, your cabinet door will line up with your remaining cabinetry.
American dishwashers usually use a heated dry cycle. The heated dry cycle is a coil at the bottom of the dishwasher designed to heat the air inside the dishwasher to dry the dishes.Short on time? Get our free Dishwasher Buying Guide
European dishwashers use less energy and water than American dishwashers. On average, the European dishwasher will use 3.5 gallons of water per cycle, European dishwashers use condensation to dry the dishes. Hot water from the cycle will stick to the stainless steel sides of the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not use any energy to heat the air in the dishwasher to dry dishes.
European dishwashers are known for being very quiet. They are quiet because they have a filter at the bottom of the dishwasher designed to catch food particles instead of a hard food disposer like some American models. Note: More and more American models are moving away from having a disposer on the bottom and using a filter like the European dishwasher.

What dishwasher would I advise a client to go with? It depends on what features you like.
Are you looking for a flush look and a stainless interior? I would suggest the Bosch or Asko. Aesthetically the dishwasher will not stick out from the cabinetry and fit flush in a 24-inch deep cabinet.
Is drying a major factor in your dishwasher purchase? I would suggest the KitchenAid or Samsung. All have an exposed heating element on the bottom of the dishwasher which aids in the drying process. Bosch and Asko use steam from the washing along with Jet Dry.
That KitchenAid at $549 has all the features you need. A third rack is a good option at $599 for either the KitchenAid or Bosch at $669.
Samsung does not have a pedigree in dishwashers like they do in refrigeration. Still, $319 is a decent price, especially in a rental.
There are plenty of good dishwashers under $699. Just be mindful of rebates as most of these dishwashers will be over $699 after November.
