Here Are The Top 10 Best 18-inch Dishwashers 2017


Alphachooser's list of the newest 18-inch dishwashers includes only dishwashers that obey to these criteria:

  • 18-Inch dishwashers are, for the vast majority, built-in models, but compact-enough for small kitchens
  • The narrow range we require to consider a model as an 18-inch dishwasher is between 17.5 and 18.5 inches
  • Expect a feature set slightly less impressive than on full-fledged dishwashers, but some 18-inch stainless-steel dishwashers still manage to have fitted many of the latest perks and scrubbing technologies associated with wide models

GE PDW1860KSS

GE PDW1860KSS

The PDW1860KSS is an 18-inch dishwasher that makes quite a lot of washing noise with its 60-dBa sound rating and whose key highlights are its natural-air-drying cycle, nylon racks, and stainless-steel tub.

The DWS55100SS is a stainless-steel 18-inch dishwasher that flaunts a somewhat-uncommonly-seen (for an 18-incher) Half Load cycle and a front-adjustable leveling system while carrying an assortment of rather-ordinary features, such as a 49-dBA noise rating, eight place settings, and a 35-minute quick-wash program.
  • Max noise level: 49 dBA
Bosch SPE53U55UC

Bosch SPE53U55UC

Average rating: (13 reviews)
The SPE53U55UC might eat up a little more power, as suggested by its slightly-above-average 1300-watt energy requirement.

Fagor LFA45X

Fagor LFA45X

Average rating: (1 review )

  • Max noise level: 55 dBA
GE ZBD1850NII

GE ZBD1850NII

Average rating: (3 reviews)
The ZBD1850NII curiously sports one of the longest "short cycle" we have seen with its 85-minute (almost an hour and a half) ExpressWash -- not so express to us, considering how many dishwashers sport a 30-minute cycle!.
  • Max noise level: 60 dBA
GE ZBD1870NSS

GE ZBD1870NSS

Average rating: (3 reviews)
The ZBD1870NSS attempts to shorten washing time with its 24-minute SpeedWash cycle, which seems fast when compared to the usual 30- to 60-minute fast-wash options offered by most dishwashers.
Summit DW18

Summit DW18

Average rating: (10 reviews)

  • Max noise level: 52 dBA
Avanti DWE1802SS

Avanti DWE1802SS
