When they think of purchasing a new dishwasher, consumers may consider the color they want the appliance to be, the number of wash cycles they need and the special features they want it to have. When considering where they'll place the dishwasher, they may wonder whether all dishwashers have the same measurements. Dishwashers vary in size.
24-inch Built-in Models
The most common width for a built-in dishwasher is 24 inches. These models have heights ranging from 32 11/32 inches to 35 1/2 inches. Depths of these models start at 23 inches and climb to 29 inches.
18-inch Built-in Models
Those who want a space-saving, built-in dishwasher may consider a model that is 18 inches wide. These units typically stand 32 to 35 inches high. Their depths range from 22 1/2 inches to 24 inches.
If you don't have a cut-out spot in your cabinetry for a dishwasher, you might consider a portable appliance. The widths of these models varies from 17 5/8 inches to 24 7/8 inches. Their heights start at 35 7/8 inches and climb to 38 1/2 inches. Depths range from 26 3/16 inches to 30 inches.
Those who live in an especially tight space may want a dishwasher they can hook up to their kitchen faucet, then put away when it's not in use. These models may be 21 10/16 to 22 1/2 inches wide. They stand about 17 inches high and measure 18 14/16 to 19 11/16 inches deep.
