Top 5 dishwashers under $500 that you should consider buying

It can be an extremely boring task in the kitchen if you have to do the dishes, especially when the meal was hearty and now all you need is your bed to plonk into. This is where a dishwasher can be of utmost use. Thanks to the dishwashers, the mammoth task of doing the dishes (spotlessly clean may we add) and drying them gets taken care of effortlessly.

While the American market offers you a plethora of features in the dishwashers, many of them are a bit steeply priced. Therefore, we have poured over all the market offerings and put together a list of five of the best dishwashers that are priced below USD 500 to make the task of dishwashing a much affordable one for you.

Maytag MDB4949SDM

For just USD 450, this dishwasher from the well-known line of Maytag appliances, apart from doing a great job at cleaning dishes, also comes with a stainless interior, a soil sensor, and a self-cleaning filter. Each of its wash cycles lasts for about 170 minutes. It is known to be one of the most reliable and long lasting dishwashers in its price range, thus living up to the reputation of Maytag appliances.

Kenmore 13223

With a stainless interior, the Kenmore 13223 is a steal for USD 450. Unlike most budgeted dishwashers, this one has an inbuilt soil sensor. This sensor adjusts the cleaning cycle time and the amount of water used to match the soil level of the dishes, thus ensuring a more efficient and cleaner wash. Each wash cycle lasts for about 160 minutes. And although the dishwasher’s filter needs to be manually cleaned, this barely takes any time. For what it’s priced at, the lack of a self-automated filter can certainly be overlooked.

Whirlpool WDT720PADM

For about USD 400, this dishwasher makes the least noise as compared to most other dishwashers. It also comes endowed with a soil sensor, a display on the door front that tells you the amount of time left for the cycle to get over, and hidden controls, that add to the aesthetic appeal of this washer. It comes with a plastic interior and a filter that you would need to clean by yourself and has a wash time of about 155 minutes.

Ikea Renlig IUD7555DS [288921] 

Priced at about USD 400, this dishwasher from the Ikea line of appliances comes with a soil sensor that makes for squeaky clean dishes. The wash time lasts for barely about 115 minutes – the shortest wash time duration among most budget dishwashers.

Kenmore 13473 

With a soil sensor, aesthetically hidden controls, and time remaining display, the Kenmore 13473 dishwasher comes at a price of USD 400. This dishwasher comes with a filter that needs to be manually cleaned, and each of its wash cycles lasts for about 160 minutes.

Maytag Jetclean Plus MDB8959AWW

This dishwasher from the line of Maytag appliances costs about USD 450. It comes with features like a high-heat sanitizer, duraguard nylon racks, a silverware blast spray jet, etc. However, the highlight of this Maytag washer is its JetClean Plus wash system that ensures your dishes come out as sparkling as ever.

Although they may not come with all the frills and fancies of a high-end premium dishwasher, a budget dishwasher can give you not just well-cleaned but also well-dried dishes. All you need to do is leave your dishes for about 2-3 hours in the washer, and they come out spotlessly clean. Most of these dishwashers use about 4-5 gallons of water and are pretty energy efficient. With so much and more in just about USD 500, what more could one ask for?
