While they have the same height and depth, standard-sized dishwashers have different widths and dimensions. An oversized dishwasher needs the same heights, depths and rough opening dimensions as a normal dishwasher. This is to ensure that the dishwasher fits into the kitchen cabinet without the additional widths, widths and dimensions that are characteristic of its design.
One manufacturer, Fisher-Paykel, focuses on the manufacture of dishwashers with drawers. This portable dishwasher is 24 inches wide instead of a built-in dishwasher, allowing it to open most closet openings and it is designed to be 21 inches deep and 34 inches high. Another manufacturer makes an 18-inch dishwasher for smaller kitchens with pool or bar areas.
Standard partially integrated dishwashers are available in a height of 3.5 inches, a width of 2.4 inches and a depth of 24 inches. Dishwashers can be up to 34 inches high, 24 inches wide and 24 inches deep, but European models tend to be smaller and few American brands offer machines in bigger sizes.
Custom dishwashers tend to have the same height, depth and dimensions as a standard (3.5 inches high and 2.4 inches deep) but can range from 30 inches to 42 inches wide, with 30 inches being the most common. The size of a built-in dishwasher differs from the size and dimensions of a countertop dishwasher and it is important to familiarise yourself with the dimensions and dimensions of each dishwasher before a new one is delivered to your home.
Small dishwashers are available in heights from 18 to 22 inches and widths up to a depth of 24 inches. For those trying to save space for a small portable dishwasher, it is advisable to opt for compact countertop dishwashers with a width of 18-22 inches. This size dishwasher is a good option for small households, mobile homes, campers and office kitchens.
Slender dishwashers have a width of 18 inches and a height of 3.2 inches. The standard height of a dishwasher is about 8.5 cm and the depth about 5.5 to 6.0 cm. You get a slim dishwasher that’s about 18 inches wide, and the other size options are displayed on a table.
If you have a non-standard workstation height on the floor and have a do-everything dishwasher installed, you will need a shorter dishwasher. Remember that the standard dishwasher has a height of 3.5 inches, so you need 3.6 inches of space for a dishwasher like that. A compact dishwasher measures 18 inches wide and six inches wide, which is twice as long as the standard dishwasher.
If you have a flat or short countertop, a drawer dishwasher is a good alternative to portable dishwashers, especially the 18-inch models. You can install a 2-drawer dishwasher in a standard kitchen and still fit a standard dishwasher in the same space. Compact dishwashers may be useful for singles or couples with small kitchens who want a built-in dishwasher but do not have enough space for a standard one.
As mentioned above, the standard dimensions of the dishwasher are 3.5 inches high, width and depth 24 inches. A typical built-in dishwasher is 24 inches wide, 24 inches deep and 35 inches high, assuming the standard style, which should fit into most closet openings in a kitchen-living room. ADA compliant dishwashers are shorter than the usual 34 inches and are better suited to lower countertops.
Use a tape measure to measure the dimensions of your dishwasher in inches to determine the maximum width of your future dishwasher. If the depth, width and height are on the same side, they will not be smaller than if you bought a new dishwasher. Choose a dishwasher and choose from a set of dimensions to adjust height and width of the space your new dishwasher will fit into.
It is important to accurately measure the dishwasher opening in your kitchen to make sure your new appliance fits. Through the measurements you can be sure that the contractor or cabinet fitter has a rough opening for the standard built-in dishwasher.
