Quiet Dishwashers

Lets face it. Features are fine, but you want it quiet. With rooms now encompassing the living and dining room, quiet dishwashers have almost a standard. People assume cleanability and ask for quietness.

But which one is the most quiet? We have on display working: Miele, Bosch, Asko, JennAir, Viking and Electrolux.

The answer is none of the above, because the difference in noise is not detectable by the human ear. My sleeper pick is Electrolux (believe it or not) which is absolutely noiseless.


  1. Hi. I stumbled upon your site while researching dishwashers and had to comment regarding the Electrolux Icon. I installed one last week. It leaked water from the front and the door will not stay latched. To finish a cycle I must stay in the kitchen and, when the door pops open (about 20 times per cycle), I have to close it. The store sent out the appliance repairman, who says that Electrolux requires the consumer to call their hotline (which is not open in the evenings or on weekends), describe the problem, which they diagnose, send parts for, and the consumer must then schedule service with the parts. I am currently fighting with the appliance store to take this dishwasher back. So I am researching bosch and kitchenaid. Is there a good one out there???

  2. First, you have a product problem. In Mass, we have lemon laws to protect consumers. Although your retailer should understand the ramification of unjustifiably upsetting a consumer

    We sell 2 lines of dishwashers in the same upscale segment, Bosch and Kitchenaid. I would also add Miele if you want to spend a few extra dollars

    I have a post comparing KitchenAid and Bosch
