Review of Dishlex dishwashers

Dishlex is an affordable dishwasher brand, targeted towards getting the basics done right and reliably. This means consumers can get exactly what they need without forking out for extras or having to read a novel to figure out how to use the thing. As a subsidiary of Electrolux Home Products, Dishlex is also claimed to be committed to reducing energy and water consumption as much as possible. So how do its dishwashers really stack up? Find out as we review Dishlex dishwashers in this article.

What kind of dishwashers does Dishlex offer?

The current range is simple and straightforward with just a few different dishwashers available, rather than including dozens of slightly different models to try to decide between.

All Dishlex dishwashers are freestanding, but with a removable worktop to allow for built-under installation. Internal features include a fully stainless-steel inner tub and soft spikes for keeping glasses stable while reducing risk of breakages.

Dishwasher load capacity is 13 standard place settings. Load sensing technology assesses each load and adjusts the wash cycle accordingly. Once the dishes have been dried, fan-assisted drying helps finish off the dishwasher cycle with everything squeaky clean and ready to go back on the self. Standard safety systems on each model include overfill protection and a bottom catchment tray. Every model has a 4.5 star WELS water rating and a 3 star energy rating.
