In the UK, dishwashers are available in a variety of sizes and configurations. This is to ensure that they are suitable for wherever they’ll be positioned. Some will happily sit on a counter or tabletop. Others are slimmer in profile and slot into narrower spots. There are also full-sized, semi-integrated and fully integrated ones too.
This dishwasher dimensions and sizing guide is offered to make it clearer for visitors about what to expect with these different product types. This way, you won’t be playing a guessing game about what dishwasher you should be seeking to fit in your dorm, a smaller kitchen, or other locations.
So, let’s dive in.

Dishwasher Dimensions and Sizes
What size is a Tabletop Dishwasher?
The tabletop dishwashers are compact models for rentals, dorms, small kitchens and other places where space is at a premium. Subsequently, they don’t require the same available space as a full-sized dishwasher does. Also, they manage 6 place settings too.
To get a better gauge of the size, a tabletop dishwasher has similar (albeit bigger) dimensions to a big microwave oven. It’s taller, but you get the idea.
A tabletop dishwasher might have dimensions close to 55cm in width, around 44cm in height and a depth of approximately 50cm.
Our top 3 recommended tabletop dishwashers and their dimensions:
- Klarstein Amazonia 6 – 55cm (w) x 49.5cm (d) x 43.5cm (h)
- Cookology CTTD6WH – 55cm (w) x 50cm (d) x 43.8cm (h)
- Bosch Serie 4 – 55.1cm (w) x 50cm (d) x 45cm (h)
Note: We also highly recommend the larger Klarstein Amazonia 8 model, which has the same width and depth but a height of 59cm.
What size is a Freestanding Slimline Dishwasher?
The slimline dishwasher is perfect for making use of narrower spaces while still being a freestanding model. These models offer 9 to 10 place settings within their typical configuration.
For measurements, the width tends to be either 44.6cm, 44.8cm or exactly 45cm. Several manufacturers stick to 45cm for the width. With the height, 85cm seems to be pretty standard across several manufacturers like Beko, Zanussi, Hotpoint, Indesit and Bosch.
For depth, this varies more often. It starts at 59cm for some models, often measures 60cm on a few and maxes out at 62.5cm on bigger models.
Our top 3 recommended freestanding slimline dishwashers and their dimensions:
- Bosch Serie 2 SPS24CW00G – 45cm (w) x 60cm (d) x 84.5cm (h)
- Beko DFS04R11 – 44.8cm (w) x 60cm (d) x 85cm (h)
- Indesit DSFE1B10 – 45cm (w) x 59cm (d) x 85cm (h)
What size is a Freestanding Full-size Dishwasher?
The freestanding (non-integrated), full-sized dishwasher models have a similar capacity as the integrated full-sized models with a 13-place setting.
Their dimensions are a little different though. The expected width is 59.8cm to 60cm and the height is frequently 85cm, exactly. For the depth, the range is between 59cm and 62.5cm.
Our top 3 recommended full-size dishwashers and their dimensions:
- Miele G7102 SC – 60cm (w) x 59.8cm (d) x 84.5cm (h)
- Bosch Serie 6 – 60cm (w) x 60cm (d) x 84.5cm (h)
- Beko DFN05R11W – 59.8cm (w) x 60cm (d) x 85cm (h)
What size is a Semi-Integrated Dishwasher?
The semi-integrated dishwasher models are in a category all their own and typically offer as many as 13 place settings. They are built to fit within the design of the existing kitchen cabinets, but their buttons and display panel are still set on the exterior face.
Their measurements feature a width of 59.5cm to 60cm and a height of 81cm to 82cm. The depth is usually between 57cm and 57.5cm. However, there are outlier models from companies like Smeg that have dishwashers with a depth of 63cm.
The integrated dishwashers are either full-sized or slimline. Therefore, these are available in a variety of sizes for an integrated fitting. A fully integrated dishwasher is designed to fit perfectly within the design of your existing kitchen cabinets. When the dishwasher door is closed, it shouldn’t be obvious that the cabinet space has been replaced with a dishwasher.
What size is an Integrated Slimline Dishwasher?
The slimmer models can handle up to 10 place settings.
These models sport a width of 44.6cm to 44.8cm and their height ranges from 81.5cm to 87cm. The model-specific heights given below are their minimum heights, but the adjustable feet on the dishwasher can be altered to increase the height up to 87cm.
The depth ranges from 55cm to 57cm across the majority of integrated slimline models.
Our top 3 recommended integrated slimline dishwashers and their dimensions:
- Bosch Serie 2 SPV25CX00G – 44.8cm (w) x 55cm (d) x 81.5cm (h)
- White Knight DW1045IA – 44.8cm (w) x 55cm (d) x 81.5cm (h)
- CDA WC432 – 45cm (w) x 57cm (d) x 81.8cm (h)
What size is an Integrated Full-sized Dishwasher?
The full-sized integrated models can handle 13 place settings for the largest families or big gatherings.
These models enjoy a width of 59.5cm to 60cm and a height of 81cm to 82cm (although we found outliers, such as the Siemens models below, and at least one Rangemaster which was 87.5cm).
For the depth, 55cm is typical, but some models we found were 57cm and 59.5cm.
Our top 3 recommended integrated full-size dishwashers and their dimensions:
- Bosche Serie 6 SMV68ND00G – 60cm (w) x 55cm (d) x 82cm (h)
- Miele G5000-Series – 60cm (w) x 60cm (d) x 91cm (h)
