The decibel count of a dishwasher

How quiet a dishwasher is is, of course, determined by the amount of decibels produced while washing your dirty dishes. Perhaps a decibel doesn’t mean anything to you, and that’s not surprising at all. To make it a little easier for you, we’ve listed the following information:

  1. 43 dB: or less: very quiet
  2. Between 44 dB and 47 dB: Average noise level
  3. 48 dB or more: very loud

What is a suitable dishwasher for you depends on the placement of your dishwasher. Noise is not a problem, but if you have an open kitchen that connects to your living room, it can be very annoying to have a dishwasher that is noisy.

There are also dishwashers available today that only have a noise level of 39 db, these are perfect for open kitchens and living kitchens. A built-in dishwasher with a noise level of 40 db is also almost inaudible. The difference between a dishwasher with sound levels of 39 db or 40 db and one of 44 db is considerable. In fact, you have to keep in mind that every additional decibel is a doubling of the sound.
