What does a dishwasher cost
If you want to swap your old dishwasher for a new model or buy one for the first time, you need to think about the cost. First of all, you should look at the cost of the appliance itself, but of course you should also think about how much energy is consumed and what the water consumption of the dishwasher is. On this page, we’ve laid out the full cost picture for you.
What does a dishwasher cost
The price of a new dishwasher starts at around €350 and can go up to €1700. The cheapest model is often freestanding. You can put this dishwasher anywhere, as long as there are enough connections. It should be able to be connected to a running tap and an outlet.
For a built-in dishwasher, you pay a little more. The cheapest model starts at €400. In the price range between €400 and €500, you have a lot of choices of dishwashers. You then have an entry-level model with energy label C.

Replace your old dishwasher for a new model
Sometimes it can be a lot more efficient to trade in your old dishwasher for a new model. Even if it is not yet due for replacement. An energy-efficient dishwasher uses considerably less water and electricity per wash than the average older dishwasher. Within a few years, you will have earned back the new model through your energy costs.
If you want to know whether a dishwasher is energy-efficient, you should look carefully at the information on the energy label. The label indicates how much water and energy is used per wash. This way you can calculate how much a dishwasher costs per wash, quarter or year.
Old dishwashers often do not have an eco program and the standard program also consumes significantly more power and water than a more economical model.
Don’t worry, your dirty dishes will be just as clean even with a dishwasher with lower consumption!
An energy-efficient dishwasher
A dishwasher that has a low consumption per spin will be much cheaper at the end of the year than a dishwasher with a high consumption. The purchase price may be a little higher, but you’ll soon have that out of the equation.
Most dishwashers are energy class C, D or E, so it is quite difficult to find an energy efficient model. In most households, the dishwasher, along with the washing machine, consumes the most energy.
Also, with a more economical model, try to fill the machine completely before you turn it on to ensure that you wash as much as possible at a time. That way, a dishwasher will still consume a lot per spin, but you won’t have to turn it on as often.
