The 6 Best Semi-integrated Dishwashers October, 2020 (And 6 Other Models)

Our list of the latest semi-integrated dishwashers includes only dishwashers that satisfy these specifications:

  • 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

Considering that the (rating temporarily unavailable)-star-rated GE GDF650SSJSS has a quieter-than-average 46dB noise rating, it's to no one's surprise that many among the 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. However, these efforts probably should've been given an extra boost. Maybe then, this quiet dishwasher could finally land a place in our top 6 best semi-integrated dishwashers list.

The Thor Kitchen HDW2401SS dishwasher sports specs such as an adequately-competitive 45dBA noise rating, a multiple filter system, and a so-called Smart Wash feature, which determines the best cycle to use based on the soil level.
