Buying a Dishwasher

When it comes to buying a dishwasher there are numerous elements you should consider before making a decision.

  • Buy New or Second Hand
  • Use a Finance Option: Pay Weekly, Monthly or Pay Later
  • Make Use of Sales & Discounts
  • Specs: Capacity, Dimensions, Energy

Dishwashers today are an indispensable addition to many households, saving time and money, while at the same time offering a much more hygienic alternative to washing dishes by hand. The modern dishwasher saves a lot of time and helps to keep the kitchen clean and tidy.

Dishwashers tend to be far more effective than hand washing, plus they are much more affordable these days, thanks to flexible finance schemes offered by most retailers both on and offline.

Finance Options Available for the Latest Dishwashers

There are many finance options available today for the purchase of expensive household white goods such as dishwashers, including being able to pay for them on a weekly, monthly or even fortnightly basis.

The stores which provide these credit plans vary from High Street names like Currys, John Lewis, Argos and Tesco, to home shopping catalogues including Very, Littlewoods and BAYV, plus less known brands that specialise in customers with less than perfect credit histories.

For those with a bad credit rating or no credit history you may find it more difficult to get accepted for a dishwasher on finance and there is never a guarantee of getting approved no matter how good your credit score may be.

Credit provided is subject to the customer successfully passing the credit and affordability checks.

  • Spread the Cost of an Expensive Item
  • Get the Dishwasher immediately when you need it
  • Some stores let you pay nothing for 6 months
  • Interest Rates & Deposits
  • Must Buy New rather than Second Hand
  • Could negatively affect credit rating if payments are missed

Things to Consider

When considering choosing a new dishwasher there are a few things to consider before deciding on a particular model, for example dishwashers are available in various dimensions and capacities, they each have different energy ratings, come in a choice of colours and finishes, are available in freestanding or built-in versions, plus they often have special features which can make life easier!

When it comes to finding the best deals on dishwashers, then, like all large purchases, it pays to shop around and compare prices. If you're paying in cash for your new dishwasher, then the large high street stores will typically offer the best prices, but before you order, ensure you double check online for any special offers or discounts available. If you can wait then waiting for the sales after Christmas is a great way to save!

Buying a used dishwasher is also an option you should consider. There are many cheap dishwashers up for sale on sites like ebay and preloved where you can find some really good deals.

Also, when comparing prices on dishwasher finance remember to always check the "total amount payable" figure to ensure you choose the cheapest deal.

Dishwasher Dimensions

Obviously at the very least you should measure where you'd like your dishwasher to go before you order and make sure the new model will actually fit!

Freestanding vs Integrated

Freestanding dishwashers are best if you already have the space but with a fitted kitchen choosing an integrated dishwasher will give that modern seamless look.

Dishwasher Capacity

Choose a capacity that will suit your circumstances, for example full size dishwashers can handle all the dishes for a 12 place settings at a time, but if you live alone and don't have many guests, this will be overkill and a much smaller model that is cheaper to run will be adequate.

Tabletop Dishwashers

You can even get compact tabletop dishwashers that can hold up to four place settings which are perfect for singles and couples that occasionally have guests for dinner.

Energy Rating

With ever increasing energy bills, choosing a A+++ dishwasher can help save plenty of money over the lifetime of the dishwasher. So much so that it's definitely worth factoring in.


The price of the dishwasher is obviously going to be one of the most important considerations. We recommend comparing as many stores as possible to find the best deal.


As with all products, certain brands are better than others. Once you've shortlisted a few models, it's a good idea to check out some reviews from customers who've already bought the item.


Dishwashers can come with all sorts of added extras including LED lighting, delay-timer settings, quick wash, flood prevention, and even wifi!
