Models start retailing from $900 and can reach up to $4,000, although higher-end models tend to vary closer to the $2,000 mark.

How much should I spend on a dishwasher?

So, how much should you be racking up when buying a dishwasher? Whether it’s dishwasher type, capacity, energy & water efficiency or special features like cutlery trays and adjustable racks, there’s plenty to think about when deciding which dishwasher is best for you. Are you sticking to a budget? Got a big family and need more than a few place settings? Planning on using services such as Afterpay for a helping hand?

Plus, while the price gap between the cheapest and most expensive models might be significant, don’t forget that the upfront retail cost doesn’t always mean greater functionality. For example, the Esatto EDW7W 60cm Freestanding Dishwasher, retailing for $599, has the same measurements and capacity as the Smeg DWA6314X Freestanding Dishwasher on sale for more than three times the price!

We hope this guide has been helpful in giving you an overview of what prices you can expect from the many different types of dishwashers.
