Consumer Reports

Take note of a few things in your search for the best dishwasher.

  1. Dishwashers have very specific size and plumbing requirements to fit properly into your kitchen cabinetry. Take a close look at your cabinets, water valves, plumbing and the dishwashers spec sheet so additional installation charges don't surprise you. Dishwasher Install Tips

  2. Kenmore dishwashers are produced by many manufacturers such as Whirlpool, GE, LG, Frigidaire & Others. Depending on who manufactures the Kenmore dishwasher you purchase will have a great deal to do with how likely your new dishwasher will need repair.

  3. As you may notice by the best dishwasher repair chart, paying a high purchase price for a dishwasher does not necessarily guarantee trouble free service.

  4. My dishwasher repair guy opinion: Mid line Frigidaire is a good candidate for best dishwasher if you want a low priced option that will get you a few years (emphasis on few). My best dishwasher choice is mid line Whirlpool. They are not trouble free but over all they are one of the best options for reliability, cost and repair support, if it's needed.
