The 7 Best Quiet Dishwashers As Of December, 2017 (And 20 Other Models)


Our list of the latest quiet dishwashers includes only dishwashers that satisfy these specifications:

  • 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 List:
