Stainless steel tubs are particularly important in areas with hard water. All European makes have this feature and may also include a
built-in water softener. An annoying occurrence with dishwashers has been their noisy operation. Good insulation by way of bitumen sheets and cotton fibres can help in sound dampening. Some dishwashers also create less noise by using two small pumps for wash and drain cycles, rather than a single larger one. Physical mechanisms such as front drop down panel for built-in dishwashers, ball bearing systems for easy roll out, space-saver designs and ergonomic models are also popular.

Wash cycles can range from the light to the heavy duty which may be required for baked residue on dishes. Sensor assisted operations and variable cycle length and temperature settings can improve the efficiency of their performance. Features which allow such adjustments can sometimes reduce energy consumption by about 25% and are both economic and eco-friendly.

Easy maintenance is a highly desirable feature in dishwashers. Features which allow self-cleansing within the cycle address this aspect. Dishwashers may also have integrated solid waste disposal features which can deal with the food waste on dishes which requires pre-rinsing. Soil sensory features monitor the purity of the wash water either chemically or optically and ensure its cleanliness.

Child lockout features are also available to counter accidental starting or stopping of wash cycles by children.
