Standard Dishwasher Dimensions – Why You Need to Know About Sizes
Well buying a new dishwasher seems exciting but if you follow these step then things get even more better. Most people hurry this process and later regret that they should have read this before ordering a dishwasher. Hope you don’t do the same mistake like others did, be smart learn from others mistakes.
I would like to ask you a simple question how do you choose your dishwasher?
Let me guess, you go to a local store near to you or book it online right. Yes, this is what majority of the people usually do and this is where they go wrong. You might ask me what’s wrong with this. Folks there is one important step that you are missing here “dishwasher dimensions”.
Before even getting one home, you have to first decide where you are going to put this machine. Then analyze whether the place is spacious enough for the dishwasher and also electrical connections and a sink should be closer to this space.
After identifying a suitable place, measure the width, height and depth of the place selected, this is important – why?
What if the newly bought dishwasher doesn’t fit into your kitchen, does it sound good (No right). Nobody likes to have problems while installation.
Now I guess, you understand how important dishwasher dimensions are. Below is small pictorial representation of the standard dimensions that is height, width and depth, take a look.
Generally in the market today, we have dishwashers that come in standard dimension or sizes. And the most common ones are 24 inches and 18 inches, this is the width.
The dishwasher sizes are often classified based on the width. If the kitchen is spacious enough then a 24 inch would be a good option to consider.
Or else an 18 inch small dishwasher would also do the same work occupying lesser kitchen space. The only major difference is the load capacity, bigger dishwashers can handle more load and smaller ones little lesser.
Note this when you see a product listing with dimensions (for example) that says 34″ x 24″ x 23″ this is nothing but height * width * depth. So before picking a dishwasher make a note of the measurements in your kitchen where the dishwasher will be placed and then choose a product that is within this dimension.
Did I forget to mention the entrance to the kitchen or into your house also has to be measured and considered before buying a dishwasher, so that the product could be easily brought inside without much frustration on your side.
P.S. Here are the standard values for a refrigerator, if you are looking for dimensions of refrigerators by chance.
First, pay attention to the size. The larger the appliance, the more expensive it will be. But if you find that the size of the appliance you want to buy is on back order, try searching for the appliance in the next size up to see if the next size up has a better price.
Second, pay attention to the service and warranty on the dishwasher. Many stores offer warranties that will cover the appliance for as long as the store is in business. Check the expiration date of the warranty on the dishwasher. If you have ever heard that warranties do not cover water damage, this applies to your purchase.
Some warranties are for up to 20 years, but many appliances come with a limited warranty. As far as service goes, it is very important to find out how long the manufacturer’s service support is. A good service support department will keep your equipment running smoothly for many years.
When you do find the appliance you are looking for, get in touch with the manufacturer. Check with them to see if there are any features of the appliance that is an issue with other people.
They may be able to make a repair, or come up with a manual service book to help you with your problem. Sometimes, the warranty can be extended to a further time. If you do not find out about these things, you may have to buy another appliance and pay full price again.
Check the model number. If you are considering buying a model that is rare or older, chances are it will cost more than the regular model. This does not mean that the model you want is the least expensive, but that it is not as common as others.
You may be surprised to find that the latest model you are looking for is actually the least expensive online. This is because many online sellers have negotiated lower prices on newer models. You may find that you can get a great deal by purchasing the less expensive model instead of the model you are really looking for.
There are also companies that specialize in purchasing only brand new dishwashers. These companies may have a better price on a new dishwasher than the local store, but their prices will be higher than regular prices. It is always good to try to find the best price that you can find on the dishwasher that you want.
Look at the prices online and compare them to what you would pay at a store. Don’t forget to ask for a warranty, and make sure that the company offers it. Some warranties are for up to ten years.
