At a Glance:
The average homeowner runs their dishwasher five times per week. This means barely a day goes by that you won’t load, run, and unload this appliance in some capacity. Some people need to run their dishwashers daily if they have large families – or just love to cook.
Most dishwashers wear out within a decade, especially if they are used frequently. You might notice that your dishes aren’t as clean or minor problems will crop up (like slow draining or unwanted clogs). If it’s time to replace your dishwasher, look at some of the best models on the market. These appliances come with modern technology but won’t break your budget.
There are a wide variety of Spencer’s dishwashers to choose from in our showroom. You can quickly see why we are the leader in Arizona appliance sales. Use this guide to learn how to pick out a new dishwasher and to see which models you should choose.
Spencers Best Dishwashers
Are you searching for a new dishwasher? Check out Spencers Appliance for a wide range of options. You will definitely find something you'll love.
There are plenty of base-model dishwashers on the market if you are looking for a simple replacement. These appliances will have a few cycles and not a lot of features. There are base-model options that are high quality and might be the right choice if you plan to move soon. However, if you want an appliance that you will use daily for the next decade, invest in a few extra features to make the process more efficient. Here’s what you need to look for.
- A third rack: modern dishwashers come with three racks. They have two standard options and a third one at the top for spatulas, wooden spoons, and other bulky utensils. This saves space and makes loading more efficient.
- Energy-efficiency: look for Energy Star-certified appliances that will use less water and electricity. The extra investment will help you save money in the long run.
- WiFi connectivity: receive alerts on your phone when your dishwasher cycle is complete. There are other features included with smart dishwashers.
- Automatic doors: save energy and dry your dishes faster with a door that pops open when the cycle is complete. This will also remove any steam from the appliance, so your dishes are cool to the touch.
- Bottle jets: these jets are made specifically for reusable water bottles and baby bottles. You can get a deep clean that doesn’t know over the bottle halfway through the cycle.
There are also luxury features to look for in your dishwasher. Some models have two compartments so you can run half-loads when you are in a hurry. This is ideal when you only have a few plates to wash and don’t have time to hand-clean them.

Here are the top five dishwashers to consider at Spencer’s Appliance Phoenix.
Bosch products are associated with quality and technology – and this model doesn’t disappoint. It is one of the top Spencer’s dishwashers sold each month. The EcoSilence™ moto system is ideal if you run your dishwasher at night or while you watch TV. You can also enjoy the PrecisionWash™ intelligent sensors that are designed to thoroughly rise your dishes in each load.
There are five different cycles to choose from with this dishwasher. It is also Energy Star-certified.
This is a highly-rated dishwasher with more than 92% of people recommending it out of more than 1,700 reviews. One person writes, “We bought our first BOSCH dishwasher in January 2001. It finally needed replacing last month in 2023. Did we buy another BOSCH? Yes! It is a great, quiet, efficient dishwasher.”
KitchenAid might be known for its stand mixers, but it also produces high-quality appliances. Wash your bowls, cake pans, and pie tins after baking with this powerful dishwasher.
Two cycles you can try out are the Prewash option, which will remove chunks of food from your dishes before starting the cycle, and the Hi-Temp Wash cycle. This latter option is ideal if you have stuck-on grease on your cookware or if you want to sanitize your dishes. You can wow your family with a chicken dish for dinner and then kill bacteria when you run this appliance.
This dishwasher has more than 5,000 reviews and a recommendation rate of 93%. One person writes, “This dishwasher is the best appliance purchase I've ever made. It's so quiet that I can't even tell it's on. It's also very effective in cleaning dishes… Perfect for any oddball silverware.”
Even the best dishwashers struggle with certain items. Plastic tumblers and other storage containers are often still wet after a dishwasher completes its cycle. GE uses fan assist technology to specifically target these items. The fans blow away water that then swirls down the drain.
This model also comes with four dedicated bottle jets on the upper rack. You can place your bottles there after a workout so they are clean and ready the next time you head to the gym.
This is one of the top Spencer’s dishwashers because it has more than 5,000 reviews. One buyer writes, “I love my new dishwasher. The third rack helps with lids and longer utensils. The sprayer for under the silverware is a plus.”
Frigidaire is proof that a quality dishwasher doesn’t have to be expensive. This is a reliable model that attracts buyers almost every day. If you are in a hurry, turn on the 30-minute Quick Clean cycle. This will rinse and wash your dishes so you can use them for a last-minute gathering. This model also comes with DishSense™ technology that identifies how dirty your dishes are and adjusts the cycle based on your needs.
There are several positive reviews of this dishwasher. One buyer says, “We selected this machine because we liked the way it looked, the third drawers for flat utensils as well as the loading options that can be configured. The dishwasher is quiet and washes the dishes well. It meets and exceeds our expectations.”
If you prefer to fill your home with high-end appliances, check out this model by GE Monogram. The polished stainless steel will create a luxurious feel in your kitchen and reduce the amount of cleaning you need to do. This model also comes with an LED status indicator on the door so you know when your dishes are done.
You can read buyer reviews to see what people think about this appliance. One person writes, “Our new dishwasher is so quiet, my husband thought something was wrong with it. We replaced a model that was over 10 years old. I love the sleek look of my new GE Monogram kitchen appliances.”
How much should you spend on a dishwasher?
Most dishwashers cost between $600 to $900 depending on the brand. If you want a basic dishwasher, you might be able to find one for less than $500. Some luxury dishwashers can cost more than $2,000. Identify the brands you trust and the features you want to choose the best dishwasher for your needs.
What should I look for when purchasing a dishwasher?
Storage capacity is one of the biggest factors in the purchase of a new dishwasher. You need to make sure your dishwasher has enough room to accommodate your family.
