What Is the Quietest Type of Dishwasher?

The quietest type of dishwasher are those that are made with excellent quality of insulation and sound dampening material, says Josh Cadenhead of Yale Appliance. One way to measure a dishwasher's sound level is its decibel rating. Dishwasher models with a rating of 41 to 50 decibels are virtually silent.

As of June 2014, the Miele G5915SCISS/SS and Bosch SHX9PT75UC are rated by Yale Appliance as among the quietest dishwasher in the market with a noise rating of 38 decibels. Another quiet dishwasher as of October 2014 is the Kenmore Elite 12793 with a 39 decibel noise rating, according to ProductReportCard.com.
