Looking for the best dishwasher?

If you’re trying to improve efficiency in the kitchen, the first thing you should consider is installing a dishwasher. While they aren’t essential in every home, you can save yourself a lot of time and effort when you have a machine to do the (literal) dirty work for you. If you already have a dishwasher, it'll be even easier to upgrade to a more efficient model. Many of the older dishwashers are not energy efficient and use more water than necessary. If you have the means, a new dishwasher can save you in more ways than one.

If you are in the market to purchase a new dishwasher, don't forget to add an extended warranty to the dishwasher you choose. The manufacturer's warranty provides limited, short-term coverage, so if you want to make the most of your new appliance you'll want to add extended coverage. Install the Mulberry extension so it'll be easy to find the best coverage as you shop online.

With so many companies out there to choose from, you might be delaying your purchase because you don’t know where to begin or how to evaluate your options. To help you get started, here's a run-down of some of the best dishwasher brands on the market and what they offer.

KitchenAid

KitchenAid is a classic appliance brand with a longstanding positive reputation. People choose KitchenAid dishwashers for their versatility and range of options. Some models offer a completely customizable experience, using three-rack organization and taller-than-average tubs.

What is the KitchenAid dishwasher warranty?

  • Standard parts and labor warranty up to one year
  • 5-year limited warranty on nylon dish racks and electronic controls
  • Lifetime-limited warranty for stainless steel tub and inner door liner

LG

LG isn’t limited to home appliances; they offer a wide range of products from appliances to high-end electronics. That’s why it's worth looking at LG if you want a dishwasher with Wi-Fi and smart-home compatibility. Instead of hoping your dishes are clean when you open the machine, you can actually monitor progress from an app for some models.

You’re a good match for LG if you want to invest in its more advanced capabilities. If that isn’t important to you, then you could save some money by purchasing a dishwasher with more basic features.

What is the LG dishwasher warranty?

  • Standard warranty for up to two years
  • 10-year limited part warranty for the motor drum

Whirlpool

This brand has a solid history in the appliance industry and you can always expect to get reliable designs with durability and energy efficiency in mind. The wide range of dishwashers makes Whirlpool a great option for budget shoppers. You can focus on the features that matter most to you, whether it’s eco-friendliness or lowering your energy costs.

What is the Whirlpool dishwasher warranty?

  • Standard one-year warranty for parts and labor
  • Four-year limited warranty for the electronic control system
  • One-year limited warranty on dishwasher filters that begins in the second year

Samsung

Samsung dishwashers are favored by those who want maximum features. As a world-renowned electronics brand, Samsung is on the pulse of what’s hot and is constantly innovating to create products that will keep customers feeling ahead of the tech curve.

What is the Samsung dishwasher warranty?

  • Standard one-year warranty for parts and labor
  • 10-year limited warranty for parts and labor on tub and door liners (specific models only)

Dishwasher purchases need additional protection

Did you notice that not one of the manufacturer warranties includes accidental damage? They barely cover parts and labor for the first year, and Whirlpool and KitchenAid are the only brands to include any mention of electronic controls coverage. No matter what brand you end up going with, you'll extend the life of your dishwasher with the addition of an extended warranty. Life is full of enough surprises; you don’t need to add to it by risking unpredictable expenses just because you don’t have an extended warranty.

If you want a product protection solution that’ll do the work for you, it's time to get the Mulberry extension for your browser. From comprehensive plans that cover your dishwasher beyond the manufacturer’s warranty to longer-term upgrades, a MulberryCare plan will handle the tough issues for you and you'll never pay any deductibles or service fees when you file a claim.
