Here Are The Top 10 Best Quiet Dishwashers As Of March, 2021

This list of the latest quiet dishwashers includes only dishwashers that satisfy these specs:

  • To make it to our list, so-called quiet dishwashers must be rated at a low decibel level of 46dB max. (The range of noise emitted by dishwashers can easily go to a quiet 38dB to a noisy 60+dB)
  • The above requirement for the quietest dishwashers essentially disqualifies most countertop models and many of the portable models, which are generally cheap (because of their target clientele), but you may still find some such dishwashers in our list
  • Dishwashers marketed as quiet, but without a specific low dB rating or dBA noise rating were not included.

The GE GDT655SSJSS, which has been rated 4.5 stars from 5078 reviews, is a low noise dishwasher that has its own set of good and bad points. We scanned through some of its customer reviews and found that it has indeed cemented its place as one of the quietest dishwashers as of mid-2018, with a noise rating of 46dBA. Like with many of its peers, consumers have reported having to touch and feel the dishwasher to make sure that it is running, since it hardly produces any significant sounds (or at least, compared to what they were used to in their previous models). Additionally, people seem to love its "flexible" loading options and simple controls. Its bottle jets have also been praised and tagged by many as a feature that they "didn't know they needed." The nice-looking modern exterior, which has been reported as fingerprint-resistant in reviews, is a major plus for buyers, as well.

Looking at its less-than-ideal reviews, this GE dishwasher apparently tends to get "too hot" -- even causing the deformation of one buyer's plasticware. This proves to be a good thing for many other people, though, as it helps enhance the quality of drying results achieved. However, some people have found that some cups and bowls tend to retain water in their crevices, since this silent dishwasher doesn't have angled loading for these kinds of dishware.

However, it appears as if the GE GDT655SSJSS's good qualities massively outweigh the bad, and it has thus earned the spot of the best model in this list of quiet dishwashers (Learn how we rank items) with a confidence level of 100 (More on confidence levels).

The 4.5-star Bosch SHXM78W55N is a quiet dishwasher that seems to choke in the drying department. Many of its less-than-5-star reviews can be accounted to consumers that were not completely satisfied with its drying performance. In addition, some people have reported that it tends to retain moisture on the bottom and top of the tub, which leads to the formation of pools of water.

However, know that a dishwasher that entirely escapes negative reviews about its drying ability is quite rare in these times, at least as of 2018. This low-decibel dishwasher attempts to make up for this shortcoming through its other features that seem to be more well-received by consumers. At 42dBA, it's one of the quietest dishwashers among its contemporaries. People appreciate how this model barely produces any sound -- especially customers who live in open-floor plan houses. With this, the red dot projected on the kitchen floor, which indicates if a wash cycle is ongoing, proves to be a helpful feature for the people who own the SHXM78W55N. The easy-to-use controls and adjustable middle rack appear to have impressed a great deal of reviewers, as well. And of course, as far as its cleaning performance is concerned, this low decibel dishwasher earned a lot of compliments.

In the end, this low noise dishwasher has certainly cemented its place as an Alphachooser good choice in our list of the top 10 quiet dishwashers.

The SGV68U53UC is a panel-ready dishwasher that carries a 3rd rack and a somewhat-uncommonly-seen Half Load option while packing 15 place settings, a 30-minute quick-wash program, a beam-on-floor washing indicator, and a below-average 44-dBA noise rating, which is, however, not the quietest we have seen from Bosch.

The STFABU adds in a promising noise rating to the mix which, at 43dBA, makes it to the quieter half of the entire dishwasher lineup in our books (as of this writing).

The GE GDF650SSJSS is acknowledged by many consumers (based on its reviews that AlphaChooser has collected from various sources) for its ability to produce clean and spotless dishes without the need to rinse them prior to loading. The bottle cleaner has been very useful, especially for households that have babies on board. And of course, these aforementioned compliments came with commendations about its quietness. At a noise rating of 46dBA, which is 1dBA lower than the category average as of this writing, these remarks are more of a confirmation than a surprise.

Unsurprisingly, this model's slate-finished variant, which is a unique characteristic among its contemporaries, has earned it many admirers, as well (However, if you don't care about appearances and are planning to get your dishwasher all paneled-up, we suggest that you take a look at our best panel-ready dishwashers page).

Most of the negative reviews touch on the topic of cycle time -- saying that this quiet semi-integrated dishwasher takes longer to wash dishes than what they were used to. However, this is a complaint that we see a lot in other dishwashers, as well. Moreover, some people have said that the racks feel a bit flimsy, and we've encountered at least one person who also said the same thing about the silverware basket . However, they were quick to point out that this doesn't affect this (rating temporarily unavailable)-star dishwasher's performance at all.

To end, the GE GDF650SSJSS obviously had been successful in earning the approval of many people, but its lackluster rack quality and long cycle times may have been the culprit behind its failure to break into our top 10 quiet dishwashers ranking.
