Dishwasher db noise level ratings by brand and model

 

Kitchen Noise – Dishwasher db levels by Brand and model

An example of relative noise levels from our surroundings, are shown below:

Normal conversation   60db

Moderate rainfall          50db

Quiet conversation       40db

Whisper                        30db

Decibels (a measurement of noise) are logarithmic and not linear in measurement.  This means that a 50db dishwasher will be twice as loud as a 40db dishwasher.  Most dishwashers rated below 50dbA can be considered quiet, and dishwashers rated below 45dbA can be considered silent.  I only listed Dishwashers that had a MSRP over $500, and that had available sound level ratings, and did not have any obvious bad ratings.   I obtained the following information from the manufacturer websites.

Amana

No Dishwashers over $500 MSRP
