The best dish­wash­ers

Dish­wash­ers can make life a lot eas­i­er. Fold the dish­es, turn on the device — and every­thing will be crys­tal clear. A good dish­wash­er can make this process easy and effi­cient.

The KP rat­ing is based on a num­ber of fea­tures that a dish­wash­er should have: for exam­ple, an effec­tive clean­ing func­tion that can wash any type of dish­ware and ster­il­ize bot­tles for small chil­dren, com­bin­ing del­i­ca­cy with good results.

LEX PM 6043 B. Pho­to: lex1.ru

New for 2022 com­bines effi­cien­cy and oper­a­tional reli­a­bil­i­ty. Tech­no­log­i­cal­ly advanced yet easy to use, the LEX PM 6043 B deliv­ers qui­et oper­a­tion com­pa­ra­ble to a qui­et con­ver­sa­tion and has vir­tu­al­ly no flaws.



With a stan­dard build-in width of 60 cm and a vol­ume of 60 liters, the inter­nal cham­ber of the mod­el is amaz­ing­ly spa­cious and allows you to load 14 sets in one cycle. Com­pe­tent­ly thought-out inte­ri­or space includes two bas­kets for dish­es, a cut­lery bas­ket. In this case, every­thing, includ­ing plates, glass­es, pots, will be thor­ough­ly washed.

LEX PM 6043 B is equipped with elec­tron­ic con­trol. All infor­ma­tion about the wash­ing time, turn­ing on, turn­ing off is reflect­ed on a con­ve­nient dis­play. Depend­ing on the degree of con­t­a­m­i­na­tion of the dish­es, the user is offered a choice of 4 oper­at­ing modes: inten­sive, eco­nom­i­cal, 90 min­utes, fast. The con­den­sa­tion type of dry­ing ensures that at the end of the cycle the dish­es will not only be clean and fresh, but also dry.

per­for­mance and econ­o­my. The mod­el has a high class of ener­gy con­sump­tion, wash­ing, dry­ing and con­sumes only 11 liters of water in one cycle. The com­fort­able option of delayed start for 3, 6, 9, 12 hours allows you to pro­gram the cycle at the desired time. This will help out in a vari­ety of sit­u­a­tions. The oper­a­tion of the device will not dis­turb the house­hold, espe­cial­ly the lit­tle ones, dur­ing sleep, and the water con­sump­tion did not affect the needs of fam­i­ly mem­bers, for exam­ple, when some­one takes a show­er. The dish­es will be clean when you need them. There is also a half load option.

The AquaStop sys­tem reli­ably pro­tects against leaks. In the event of a prob­lem, the sys­tem will sim­ply block the oper­a­tion of the dish­wash­er and turn off the water sup­ply. Anoth­er nice point: an extend­ed war­ran­ty of 36.6 months. LEX PM 6043 can safe­ly be called one of the best invest­ments in kitchen com­fort.

2. Whirlpool WSIO 3O23 PFE X

Whirlpool WSIO 3O23 PFE X
Whirlpool WSIO 3O23 PFE X. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

Eco­nom­i­cal and pow­er­ful dish­wash­er.

Meet the Whirlpool WSIO 3O23 PFE X, a device with amaz­ing ener­gy effi­cien­cy (Ener­gy Rat­ing A++), out­stand­ing capac­i­ty (up to 10 sets) and unri­valed clean­ing per­for­mance.

One of my favorite fea­tures is Pow­er­Clean, a tur­bo boost pro­gram that lit­er­al­ly sucks grease out of dish­es. Plus, it’s one of the qui­etest machines on the mar­ket, even if it’s not hid­den behind a fur­ni­ture door.

The list of main func­tions includes an inten­sive pro­gram for heav­i­ly soiled dish­es and an express pro­gram (quick cycle). A nice addi­tion will be a “del­i­cate” pro­gram for wash­ing frag­ile dish­es, an eco­nom­i­cal pro­gram for light­ly soiled dish­es and a pre-soak mode.

Pros and cons

No noise, capac­i­ty

LEX PM 4573 B. Pho­to: lex1.ru

The LEX brand has intro­duced an updat­ed ver­sion of the dish­wash­er with enhanced func­tion­al­i­ty, still main­tain­ing one of the longest war­ranties on the mar­ket — 36.6 months.

The A++ ener­gy class machine has low water con­sump­tion and good capac­i­ty.



The arse­nal con­tains all the nec­es­sary set of prac­ti­cal func­tions (half load, rinse, inten­sive mode), as well as a new, quite pop­u­lar, but rare in this price cat­e­go­ry, “auto­mat­ic wash” mode. An inter­nal sen­sor mon­i­tors the con­t­a­m­i­na­tion of the water at the drain, and the machine con­tin­ues to wash the dish­es until it is per­fect­ly clean.

4. Electrolux ESF 2400

Electrolux ESF 2400
Elec­trolux ESF 2400. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

Reli­able helper for a small fam­i­ly.

This dish­wash­er is made using the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy and looks very attrac­tive. It has com­pact dimen­sions: 60 cm high, about 50 cm wide. About 6 sets of dish­es can be placed in the wash­ing cham­ber — this is enough for a small fam­i­ly.

The device con­sumes the min­i­mum amount of elec­tric­i­ty — its ener­gy effi­cien­cy class is A+. One wash­ing cycle con­sumes 6.5 liters of water. The machine has a suf­fi­cient num­ber of pro­grams, in par­tic­u­lar, nor­mal, inten­sive, del­i­cate, express modes, as well as econ­o­my are includ­ed. If nec­es­sary, you can use the addi­tion­al rinse func­tion.

Pros and cons

Com­pact size, min­i­mal pow­er and water con­sump­tion
No surge pro­tec­tion

5. Hansa ZWM 416 WH

Hansa ZWM 416 WH
Hansa ZWM 416 WH. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

A good bud­get option for the wal­let.

This wash­ing machine is designed to load 9 place set­tings at the same time. The own­ers have at their dis­pos­al 5 full modes, a rinse pro­ce­dure and a mod­i­fi­ca­tion of the cycles, pro­vid­ed that they are half loaded.

Mod­i­fy­ing modes to include the half load option saves time, water and ener­gy. Users report sav­ings of up to 25%. Besides, Hansa ZWM 416 has reli­able pro­tec­tion against leaks. In gen­er­al, the device copes well with all types of dirt and has the abil­i­ty to use almost any dish­wash­ing deter­gent.

Pros and cons

Good capac­i­ty, suf­fi­cient num­ber of modes of oper­a­tion
No timer

6. Candy CDCP 6/E

Can­dy CDCP 6/E. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

Anoth­er small car for stu­dio apart­ments.

The capac­i­ty of this machine is small — only six sets of dish­es fit in the cham­ber, but this is quite enough for a small fam­i­ly. But there are a decent num­ber of oper­at­ing modes: inten­sive wash (for dish­es with seri­ous dirt), dai­ly wash, pro­gram for frag­ile items, quick wash and eco­nom­i­cal wash. In addi­tion, a water sav­ing mode and dirty dish­es are sup­port­ed. But this mod­el does not pro­vide a quick rinse.

Pros and cons

Com­pact­ness, all nec­es­sary oper­at­ing modes
No quick rinse

5.Indesit DFP 27B+96Z

Indesit DFP 27B+96Z
Inde­sit DFP 27B + 96 Z. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

Sim­ple dish­wash­er but with every­thing you need.



Slight­ly basic in style and func­tion, the Inde­sit DFP 27B+96 Z wins over with its excel­lent clean­ing per­for­mance and low run­ning costs (Ener­gy Class A++). After all, those are the most impor­tant fac­tors when you think of a dish­wash­er, right?

It’s impor­tant to note that the Inde­sit DFP 27B+96 Z has every­thing you need to be your per­fect com­pan­ion: the machine is easy to load and the addi­tion­al sink option allows you to remove the top bas­ket so you can fit extra large items in it. Those with a tod­dler will love the baby care cycle, which is designed to remove 99.9% of bac­te­ria: great for baby bot­tles, teethers and toys.

Pros and cons

Many addi­tion­al func­tions, suit­able for chil­dren’s items

6. Indesit DFG 26B1

Easy to oper­ate and rel­a­tive­ly low price.

Don’t real­ly fuss about chas­ing the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy, but just want clean dish­es at a low price? Then the Inde­sit DFG 26B1 is the dish­wash­er for you. The capa­bil­i­ties of the device can be summed up in a small list: one large cen­tral knob for select­ing one of six pro­grams, but­tons for on / off, start delay and the mys­te­ri­ous­ly named MyTime func­tion, which reduces the wash­ing time.

Sim­ply put, the Inde­sit DFG26B1 does its job as a basic, easy-to-use dish­wash­er with good envi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance.

Pros and cons

Ease of use, func­tion­al­i­ty
No child pro­tec­tion

7. Hotpoint-Ariston HSFO 3T223W

Hotpoint-Ariston HSFO 3T223 W
Hot­point-Aris­ton HSFO 3T223 W. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

A nar­row dish­wash­er that stands out for its high per­for­mance and flex­i­bil­i­ty.

Although the Hot­point-Aris­ton HSFO 3T223 W is a nar­row mod­el, it does not lose the fea­tures of the com­pa­ny’s stan­dard, full-size (60 cm) mod­els. That’s why you get an eco­nom­i­cal A++ ener­gy rat­ing, as well as nine wash­ing pro­grams and options. Load­ing is very easy and the mod­el itself is very func­tion­al: the top rack is height adjustable, there are fold­ing tines for small plates, and the bot­tom rack has fold­able pot sup­ports.

A key fea­ture is the 3D jet tech­nol­o­gy that sprays water into the machine to effec­tive­ly clean your dish­es. A minor issue is that the dish­es could be dri­er after touch dry­ing. How­ev­er, there is an addi­tion­al fea­ture that uses a lit­tle more ener­gy but leaves dish­es drip-free.

Pros and cons

Suit­able for small apart­ments, all nec­es­sary pro­grams
Not the best dry­ing

8. Bosch SKS62E22

Bosch SKS62E22
Bosch SKS62E22. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

Com­pact option for a small apart­ment.

Bosch SKS62E22 has 6 built-in oper­at­ing modes: for exam­ple, a spe­cial pro­gram for wash­ing frag­ile items, as well as eco­nom­i­cal and fast modes. And the half load mode is very con­ve­nient to use with a small amount of dirty dish­es.



In addi­tion, the device has a con­den­sa­tion dry­er. The last cycle of rins­ing dish­es is done with hot water, after which the dish­es remain to dry inside, water in the form of con­den­sate accu­mu­lates on the walls of the dish­wash­er body and flows down. And the acti­va­tion of the Var­ioSpeed ​​​​mode allows you to sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce the dura­tion of any pro­gram with­out los­ing the qual­i­ty of the result.

Pros and cons

Com­pact, good dry­ing
Small down­load

9. Bosch SMS44GI00R

Bosch SMS44GI00
Bosch SMS44GI00. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

For large con­tain­ers.

The main dis­tin­guish­ing fea­ture is that the machine auto­mat­i­cal­ly adjusts the hard­ness of the water, pre­vent­ing this indi­ca­tor from falling below pH 5.5. Dur­ing the wash­ing process, water cir­cu­lates through 5 lev­els — this tech­nol­o­gy pro­vides good sav­ings. The water flow rate and pres­sure are also auto­mat­i­cal­ly adjust­ed. Spe­cial sen­sors deter­mine the amount of dish­es in the wash­ing cham­ber, after which the proces­sor cal­cu­lates the required amount of water, deter­gent and elec­tric­i­ty.

Pros and cons

Excel­lent dish­wash­ing and dry­ing per­for­mance, high cham­ber per­for­mance
Do not leave the door open after use

10 Siemens iQ100 SR615X83NR

Siemens iQ100 SR615X83NR. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

For lovers of design tech­nol­o­gy.

The mod­el is designed for 10 sets, and it’s not worth lov­ing it for this — we have one of the most styl­ish dish­wash­ers on the mar­ket. In addi­tion, a clean water sen­sor and a load sen­sor pro­vide tech­no­log­i­cal wash­ing based on the amount of dish­es and the lev­el of con­t­a­m­i­na­tion in the water. There are 5 wash pro­grams, a half load option, a 3, 6 and 9 hour delay timer and an auto­mat­ic door clos­er.

Pros and cons

Design, many use­ful fea­tures
Woman, whine about the “hard life”? Remem­ber grand­moth­ers!

How to choose a dishwasher

kitchen space

Most dish­wash­ers are built-in mod­els. This means that they are designed to be placed under the coun­ter­top next to your cab­i­nets. These dish­wash­ers are usu­al­ly stan­dard sized, but we rec­om­mend that you check the dish­wash­er’s dimen­sions and cutout space before pur­chas­ing a mod­el.

Oth­er dish­wash­ers are free­stand­ing or portable. They attach to your faucet and drain into the sink. If there is not enough space, installing an addi­tion­al coun­ter­top would be an ide­al option. So if you are sin­gle, this might be an accept­able com­pro­mise.

Turbidity sensor

Many dish­wash­ers include a device called a tur­bid­i­ty sen­sor that detects food from your dish­es in the wash water. These mod­els can tell when your dish­es are clean: if the water is clean, all dirt and food has been removed. These machines are pre­ferred as they are more effi­cient and can wash light­ly soiled dish­es faster.


A noisy dish­wash­er can be very dis­tract­ing, so look for qui­et mod­els. Most mod­els come with a noise rat­ing indi­cat­ing the amount of sound they pro­duced when test­ed. The low­er this num­ber (in deci­bels), the qui­eter they are. How­ev­er, remem­ber that dish­wash­ers must be prop­er­ly installed to be qui­et, with noise reduc­tion that cov­ers them in place.


It’s quite dif­fi­cult to mea­sure how many dish­es a dish­wash­er can hold, as it depends on the type of dish­es you put in the machine. Most man­u­fac­tur­ers offer a num­ber of kits. It indi­cates how many sets of dish­es can fit inside. One set con­sists of din­ner plate, dessert plate, glass, soup bowl, cup and saucer, and cut­lery. A large dish­wash­er can hold 15 or more sets, while a com­pact dish­wash­er can hold sev­en or eight.




All dish­wash­ers hold dish­es with racks that slide out when load­ing and unload­ing. It is impor­tant to find out how eas­i­ly these legs extend when the machine is ful­ly loaded, as well as whether they are adjustable. With a good dish­wash­er, you can move the racks up and down to accom­mo­date large dish­es.

Anoth­er use­ful fea­ture is the adjustable prongs that lift and hold the dish­es in place. Some dish­wash­ers have fold-out tines to make it eas­i­er to fit large dish­es.
