Looking for the quietest dishwasher money can buy? The good news is that dishwasher brands are perpetually in competition to produce the quietest dishwasher and, as a result, there are now dozens of ultra-quiet dishwashers on the market available to you. Selecting the right one can be intimidating, because some of these low-sound level models sacrifice performance for quietude. Others, however, find just the right balance, and don’t even break the bank.
Sound level is measured in dB(a)—the lower the dB(a) the quieter the dishwasher. Dishwashers with a sound level below 45 dB(a) are considered exceptionally quiet. Below, you’ll find a rundown of AJ Madison’s recommended dishwashers under 45 dB(a). These ultra-quiet models are among our highest selling and best reviewed. That’s because they run nearly silently while still delivering outstanding wash performance.
