Dishwasher deals and sales

Where to find the best dishwasher deals?

There are hundreds of resellers online selling dishwashers, and, really, we're pretty spoilt for choice. A lot of our favorite stores, such as Best Buy, Target, and Walmart, sell dishwashers in a range of sizes: portable, built-in, and countertop. If you're a Prime member, though, and only shop at Amazon, then we have a top tip: there are a number of the best countertop dishwashers with limited-time deals.

See our A-Z of the stores and brands with dishwasher deals below to find a deal during the holidays and through the rest of the year.

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.

Are the Memorial Day dishwasher deals worth it?

In 2024, Memorial Day landed on Monday, May 27 in honor of all the men and women who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. military. This time of year also marks the beginning of summer, which sees brands and resellers alike compete to offer you the biggest discounts on major appliances. Dishwasher deals are one of them.

With the arrival of Memorial Day sales we saw some deep discounts across LG, GE and Samsung dishwashers (to name a few) with a bunch of your favorite stores including Amazon, Home Depot and Lowe's. Some of these sales started in the couple of week leading up to May 27, whereas the likes of Amazon held back until slightly closer to the time.

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.
