    Bought a new (to me) house and need to replace the DW.

    What brand or model for less than $700-800?

    Normal 24" under cabinet type.

    What color are you looking for? White, black, stainless steel or other?
    Are there any particular features you're looking for?
    24" is the height?

    In terms of customer reviews, KitchenAid seems to have some of the best reviews. Maytag, Whirlpool, & Bosch seem pretty high on the ratings lists.

    There's a KitchenAid one on sale for $649 @ Lowes. https://www.lowes.com/pd/KitchenAid...-Inch-Actual-23-875-in-ENERGY-STAR/1000398365
    and @HomeDepot https://www.homedepot.com/p/Kitchen...less-with-ProWash-46-dBA-KDFE104HPS/304613078 (for $648)

    I can't really speak from personal experience on dishwashers since I don't use one.

    I hope this helps a little though.

    I've had my dishwasher for over 52 years. Never had a dish washing machine, however. When my wife and I move into a house that had one, she had it removed.

    Bosch. They are quiet and do a good job. A little speedy but every one I’ve installed the people seem really happy and I’m happy with ours.

    We have a Bosch. They have a small dot of light shinning on the floor to let you know its running. My wife loves it.

    Some people do not know this, but if you remove the top or side [depending on model]
    door trim strip, you can slide the front panel out, and flip it over
    BOOM color change...I have seen doors with 3 panels inside of them that is 6 colors

    I would say Bosch as well. Bosch is rated the best dishwasher as far as clean dishes goes. Also look for a lower end model. Preferably one without "water saving" or "energy saving" they clean much better. Kitchenaid sucks along with their no-customer support.
