The Best Dishwashers to Buy

These are the best value for money Dishwashers that you can buy in the UK market currently. We have lost all British manufactures who were making dishwashers, so you have to buy foreign at the moment.

Big Energy Saving Tip

Did you know is possible to connect the dishwasher to the hot water supply? The maximum recommended temperature is 60°C (the water valves are only designed for this type of temperature). If the hot water comes from an alternative source of energy (e.g. solar panels), use the hot water supply to decrease energy consumption Saving you a lot of money each year.

Please note

Do not be fooled by manufacturers, nowadays they own lots of brands one company may own up to 10 brands but a lot of the parts inside are the same. Always check with the salesman when you buy a new Tumble Dryer which holding company owns it. Don't be frightened to ask questions it is the salesman job to know this information

Things to think about when buying a new Dishwasher. The 1st choice you have to make is,  to choose between a freestanding and integrated

Place Settings
The consideration you'll need to make is how many place settings you want. This will depend on how many plates you have and people live in your house and how often you wish to run your dishwasher.

9-10 place settings: 1-2 person household.
11-13 place settings: 2-3 person household.
14+ place settings: 4+ person household.
For the smaller place settings, it may be worth considering a slimline dishwasher. These models will take up less space without sacrificing wash quality.

Energy Efficiency
A common myth is that dishwashers use more energy and water than hand washing,  This isn't true! Dishwashers are now much more environmentally friendly and energy-efficient than hand washing, with ratings ranging from A+ to A+++ and if you have a hot water feed to them then it will normally run the whole cycle draw less than 300 watts.

Delay start time

when you have solar panels on your house then its good to start the dishwasher at the peak sunlight in the day, but if you don't you can start the dishwasher at the economic tariff of electricity depending on the contract.

Freestanding Dishwashers

Normally the easiest to repair because you can pull the appliance out easily. but they are still a bit tricky to get access to the main parts as they are mostly at the bottom of the machine. keeping the sump and filter clean is still the most important as any bits of food that get past the filter can end up blocking the spray arms etc.

you have 2 types normally

  • Standard: which is called 600 wide but normally measures a few mm less
  • Slimline: these are 450mm wise but also normally slightly smaller by a few mm

 

Integrated Dishwashers

Easy to work on but the hardest to get out of the kitchen cabinet. you will need a door mounting kit these normally come with a new one but check with the salesman. keeping the sump and filter clean is still the most important as any bits of food that get past the filter can end up blocking the spray arms etc.

  • Standard: which is called 600 wide but normally measures a few mm less
  • Slimline: these are 450mm wise but also normally slightly smaller by a few mm

Tabletop Dishwashers

I don't have a great knowledge of these so you have tho make your own choice, I would always pick a known brand because of the warranty.
