Samsung DW80H9970US

This Samsung caught our attention for one big reason: the Waterwall. It's a motorized spray arm that moves back and forth across the entire bottom of the tub, instead of the usual rotating arm. In our tests, the DW80H9970US ranked among the top-performing dishwashers on the market, and because it's part of Samsung's Chef Collection, it also comes with a third rack, touch controls, and ample cycles and wash options.

GE Profile PDT750SSFSS

While a quieter dishwasher is always better, those lower decibels won’t do much good if the machine can’t clean your dishes. Luckily, the GE Profile PDT750SSFSS offers near-perfect performance along with an ultra-quiet sound profile. It also comes loaded with features, including customization options, plenty of cycles, an LCD display, and bottle wash jets for baby or sports bottles. It's a great fit for any kitchen.

KitchenAid KDTM354DSS

From design to performance, this all-new dishwasher is all about fluidity and grace. Perhaps most importantly, it's equipped with KitchenAid’s Clean Water Wash technology, which continually removes food particles from wash water. That means the KDTM354DSS doesn’t spray debris back onto clean dishes. Should you buy one of your own? We think so. This is one of the best-performing dishwashers in its price range.

Kenmore Elite 14753

This Elite's sensor-based Normal cycle adjusts its cleaning power to suit how dirty your dishes are. While this means it can take up to four hours and use as much as 8 gallons of water, it more or less guarantees that your dishes will come out spotless. A host of cycle options can tackle any stain, ensuring the job gets done no matter what's on your plates. And really, that's all anyone needs out of a dishwasher.

GE Monogram ZDT800SSFSS

Even though this Monogram machine is missing a few features you’d expect from a dishwasher in its lofty price range, it compensates with stylish good looks and top-tier performance. The features it does offer—including bottle wash jets, a pre-soak setting, and top-mounted controls—are also well-implemented. For a dishwasher that not only looks great, but passes that beauty on to your dishes, you need look no further.
