Looking for a dishwasher deal? We hear you. Regardless of whether you need one or want one, a dishwasher is one of those major appliances that command a serious investment.

They are considered to be one of the most essential major appliances for busy households since they can take care of cleaning all the dirty dishes, cutlery, pots and pans. Some even have neat features such as sanitizing, and Wi-Fi connectivity so you can control it from wherever is most convenient. However, this all comes with a (high) cost which is why it's important to look for deals and discounts to ensure you get the best value for your money.

So, whether you're on a tight budget or simply looking for a good deal, finding a top-quality dishwasher for less is more achievable than you might think. Keep reading to browse and/or shop.

When is the best time of year to get a dishwasher deal?

Fall is the best time of year to shop for a deep dishwasher deal. It's an opportunity for resellers and brands alike to clear old stock and make way for seasonal newness, which tends to land at this time of year.

It also resonates with the end-of-year sales, including Black Friday and the After Christmas Sales. 

The deals on dishwashers tend to remain steady; once they're discounted, it's unlikely they'll be dropped in price any further. What you'll need to watch is the stock levels since it's equally unlikely that any more deliveries will be made to replenish the stock of older makes and models of dishwashers.

Can I expect to see any Memorial Day dishwasher deals?

Memorial Day is on Monday, May 27 this year in honor of all the men and women who have died while serving in the US military. This is also a prime time for retailers to get involved with the Memorial Day sales since this time of year is around the beginning of summer.

Along with plentiful outdoor furniture deals to shop, we're also expecting to see a bunch of major appliances discounted - including dishwashers. Although the discounts won't be as deep as those in the fall, all major resellers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Lowe's and Home Depot will be getting involved to offer an enticing discount nonetheless. 

Amazon would be the best place to check out for a countertop dishwasher, whereas your other favorite stores will have freestanding and built-in models. The sales are likely to start from the beginning of May with select retailers, and will continue through to Memorial Day.

Are there good Labor Day dishwasher deals?

In short, yes. Labor Day sales act as a pre-Black Friday teaser of what to expect. In 2023, we saw Best Buy offer up to 40% off major appliance brands from brands like Samsung, LG, and GE, which was just 5% less than the offer during Black Friday week.

Around the time of Labor, the price of dishwashers started to fall. They may not be at their lowest-ever price, but they are still going to be a good price nonetheless.

Can you get good Amazon Prime Day deals?

While Prime Day is only really limited to Amazon Prime members and what is stocked with the online retailer, it is a good opportunity to shop for countertop dishwashers and dishwasher detergent if you like to buy in bulk.

However, what we saw in 2023 was something that we didn't predict. Resellers such as Best Buy and Walmart launched anti-prime day deals that rivaled Amazon, offering the same or deeper discounts across a range of products. This meant that major appliances, such as dishwashers, also saw a sale.

Are Black Friday dishwasher deals any good?

We saw that the Black Friday dishwasher deals were amongst some of the best Black Friday appliance deals during the holidays. The majority of the dishwashers seen in the reseller and brand categories saw a discount. There was also plenty of stock to go around, too.

Are Black Friday dishwashers deals better than after Christmas dishwasher deals?

The Black Friday dishwasher deals would have started in the weeks leading up to the event, so dishwashers would have been discounted well in advance. These low prices continue through Cyber Week and the weeks thereafter. It's likely that by the time we get to the after-Christmas sales, we will see deeper discounts across all counter-top, portable, and built-in dishwashers as a last-ditch effort from resellers and brands to shift 2021 and 2022 models. 

If the prices have marginally increased after Black Friday, as they sometimes do, we can expect to see the return of Black Friday offers - or better. Some dishwashers may even enter a clearance with a deeper discount.

End of year dishwasher deals

The end of the year is always going to be a good time to shop for a dishwasher deal. What we've seen is that dishwashers are discounted in the weeks leading to Black Friday, and they remain at these low prices through the After Christmas Sales until January. Some brands and resellers may even decide to offer deeper discounts as they clear stock to make way for newness in early spring.

Shopping advice

How to know if you have found a good dishwasher deal?

When we're looking for deals, we pay particular attention to the brands that we know are good. This way, we know that what you're going to be getting is a good deal. We'd always advise you to check the reviews if it isn't a dishwasher that you've seen in the store. It's not always about getting a cheap dishwasher - you want one that is going to last, too.

You can also use price comparison tools such as camelcamelcamel and Honey to show you the pricing history of the appliance from up to 120 days ago. These are helpful tools for providing insight into whether (or not) you're getting a dishwasher for its lowest-ever price.

What is a good price for a dishwasher?

The price range for dishwashers can be broad, depending on the type of dishwasher you're after. There are a couple of different sizes (portable and built-in or countertop); the internal capacity will determine the number of place settings, and those with smart features will bump up the list price. The manufacturer will also play a part in how much you could end up spending.

It would be a better idea to know what you're looking for and to set your budget to hone in on the dishwasher that would best suit your needs.

Countertop dishwashers tend to be the cheapest. They are much smaller than the larger, portable, or built-in dishwashers and don't come with a lot of bells and whistles. They are a fantastic option for smaller apartments or single-person occupancy, though. You can expect to pay between $150 - 400, though we recommend paying towards the upper end of what you can afford to ensure that you get a countertop dishwasher that lasts.

Built-in dishwashers are a good option for open-plan living. The only difference between a built-in and portable dishwasher is that the latter are panel-ready, which allows you to attach a cabinet front to the dishwasher. The specifications will all be the same, but the overall finish will look totally different. You can expect to pay anything between $300 - 3000. This broad price difference is down to the number of features, wash cycles, place settings, smart connectivity, and the brand. Bosch, LG, and Samsung are a few of the more expensive brands, whereas Maytag and Whirlpool are towards the lower end of the pricing scale. Again, we recommend paying for what you can afford to ensure that you are getting the best dishwasher deal your money can get.

Dishwasher deals: FAQs

Is it worth spending extra on a dishwasher?

The answer to this question depends on how many times you plan on using your dishwasher; several times a day, once a day or once a week. The more frequently you use your dishwasher, the more times it is going to be put through the ringer as it washes cutlery, crockery, pots and pans.

If you have kids then it's likely that the dishwasher is rarely off. Therefore, it would be worth investing in a dishwasher which has some high spec and a good brand reputation.
