What does a new dishwasher cost?
As we mentioned, a fully integrated dishwasher is a bit more expensive than the other models. You should expect a new built-in dishwasher to cost at least 400, while you can get a freestanding model for 300.
That price difference is explained by the fact that a fully integrated built-in dishwasher has just a bit more customization and technical gadgets than a freestanding model. In a fully integrated dishwasher, the control panel is on the inside, so you can’t see it from the outside. With a semi-integrated dishwasher, the control panel is visible from the outside on the door of the dishwasher.
All this also needs to fit within the 82 cm height and 56 cm width of the average countertop. In the case of a freestanding dishwasher, there are no size limitations, making it more affordable.
Features such as an adjustable upper basket, a half load wash program, space for 13 place settings and fast drying functions also make a dishwasher more expensive.
