Here Are The Top 10 Best Semi-integrated Dishwashers 2019
Our list showing the newest semi-integrated dishwashers includes only dishwashers that obey to these rules:
- Semi-integrated dishwashers are essentially classic models, those with visible controls, typically at the top of the front panel
- Therefore, this list excludes most panel-ready models (but we have a list for them) and fully-integrated models
- 18-inch semi-integrated dishwashers also exist, but since most of them are semi-integrated anyway, please see our list of 18-inch dishwashers
Given its compound ranking of 87%, we conclude that the LG LDF5545ST is currently Alphachooser's best semi-integrated dishwasher 2019. Alphachooser also concludes that our sample of 1900 reviews from our sources gives us a high confidence level (more on confidence levels) that justifies calling it a "no-brainer best choice."
Special features: 120-degree Fahrenheit inlet water capability, 27.125-inch depth with door closed
|Average rating: (87%) (1900 reviews over 4 sources)|
The Whirlpool WDF520PADM has a star rating of 4.5 stars, according to the 18464 total reviews that our automated feedback aggregator has compiled and scanned. According to many of these said reviews, this semi-integrated dishwasher deserves praise for its spacious bottom rack and powerful water jets. Moreover, this dishwasher sports a sophisticated look, which has also been complimented quite a lot by its buyers.
Its cup shelf on the upper rack has also been the subject of commendation. This, along with the AccuSense feature, makes the WDF520PADM "very efficient to use."
As for not-so-great reviews, there have been complaints about its silverware basket not attaching securely to the front door. And speaking of this basket, the slots therein are apparently not optimal for space maximization, or is at least quite selective in the type of utensils that it accommodates. Most likely, the several protests we have seen about its inability to effectively clean silverware is connected to this. Feedback regarding cleaning other dishes, however, is mostly-positive.
The aforementioned points show that the Whirlpool WDF520PADM is a dishwasher with its own collection of strengths and weaknesses. Obviously, its good points have more weight to them compared to the not-so-impressive features, as it has earned the name of Alphachooser's second best semi-integrated dishwasher 2019 in this list of the top 10 semi-integrated dishwashers.

Considering that the 4.5-star-rated GE GDF650SSJSS has a quieter-than-average 46dB noise rating, it's to no one's surprise that many among the 693 reviews of this model that our crawler system has analyzed are raving about its relatively-silent operation. More than that, a good number of its buyers also claim that it cleans dishes excellently, without them having to perform a pre-rinse. This quiet semi-integrated dishwasher also appears to have more reviews praising its drying capability than what we're usually used to reading.
You can't please everyone, as the saying goes -- and this model is no exception. It has been criticized for its longer cycle times (as the shortest cycle is at 55 minutes, whereas many other dishwashers offer 45-minute programs). Further, some reviewers were bothered by its alleged "cheap-feeling" construction and "flimsy" racks and silverware basket. However, while reviews that say these things make up most of its low ratings, there's barely any reported incidents of an actual material breakdown.
Besides, it looks like the GE GDF650SSJSS worked hard to counterbalance these potential negatives by nailing its design (described by many as attractive and sleek) and including a bottle-washer feature that's also well-appreciated by many of its consumers. Seeing this, this quiet dishwasher may have just proven itself worthy of the honor of being an Alphachooser good choice.
Special features: Audible end-of-cycle signal, Dedicated silverware jets, Quiet water valve, Sealed toe kick, Tub collar trim
|Average rating: (85%) (693 reviews over 4 sources)|
The PDF820SSJSS is a 2016-released semi-integrated GE dishwasher that also pre-washes using steam, but is however given a lot of already-seen specs, such as its two quad-blade wash arms, a 16-dish capacity, and a 45-dBA noise rating.
Special features: Audible end-of-cycle signal, Quiet water valve, Sealed toe kick, Side jets, Tub collar trim
|Average rating: (85%) (238 reviews over 4 sources)|
The GE GDF520PGJWW is available in a bisque-colored variant, which looks slightly similar to its white version (but seems to have a "more-aged" vibe).
Claimed qualities: Delivers 65% more wash power to both racks with the most advanced wash system from GE.
Special features: Wash Your Way customizable rack
|Average rating: (84%) (2444 reviews over 2 sources)|
If there's one department that the GE GDF610PMJES has tried to ace, it's definitely its accommodation factor. Rated 4 stars from 697 reviews, it has gained numerous pats on the back for having "plenty of room." Perhaps this is a manifestation of its relatively-high 16 place settings, as the average lies at only 14 as of this write-up. Many buyers, in the reviews we analyzed, also seem to have appreciated its bottle washer feature, as the specialized jets for this function effectively cleaned sports bottles, according to reviews. The added provision for targeted wash zones was also well-received, especially for smaller households whose kitchen design calls for a 24-inch semi-integrated model, but whose occupants don't typically produce a full load even in a matter of days.
In spite of the cheering and since nothing is ever perfect, this semi-integrated dishwasher has somewhat disappointed many of its users with regards to its design. Apparently, the front door doesn't seem very high-quality, and several people pointed out that its panel feels cheap. However, its controls have been praised to be smooth and simple to use, so there's that consolation, at the very least.
As for noise, it's definitely not the quietest dishwasher in our books, with a noise rating of 51dB, but users have detailed that its sound levels are nonetheless acceptable and are non-disruptive.
The GE GDF610PMJES' reviews reveal that it has put much thought on its usability, but unfortunately has sacrificed its design in some ways. Still, it looks like the former outweighs the latter quite considerably, as this model has successfully climbed up this top 10 semi-integrated dishwashers list to bag the place of an Alphachooser interesting choice.
Special features: Bottle jets

The FFBD2412SS is a semi-integrated dishwasher that gets to work using mostly-ordinary features, which include a 55-dBA noise rating, 14 place settings, and a 90-minute Energy Saver wash program, but it is also offered in a slightly-cheaper Silver Mist variant (FFBD2412SM), which looks a bit similar to the stainless-steel version (FFBD2412SS).

The SHE89PW75N is a built-in dishwasher that seems like a strong contender for people who want a more sophisticated TFT display and stand-out noise rating (This one's levels sit between 38dBA to 40dBA) to accompany the usual dishwasher specs.
Claimed qualities: The flexible third provides an additional 30 percent loading area.
|Average rating: (84%) (6 reviews)|
