Editor’s Note: This review has been removed from our side-by-side comparison because it no longer ranks as a top 10 product. The original review is below, but check out our current top 10 reviews on Dishwashers here.
The Electrolux IQ-Touch EI24ID50QS has more cycle options than any other dishwasher in our comparison of the best dishwashers. While cleaning the machine is less convenient than it is with our other top products, this dishwasher comes loaded with features and capabilities.
This is an energy-efficient unit. It has some eco-friendly wash and dry options, as well as a certification from Energy Star. The Energy Guide lists the annual cost to run the machine as only $31. Energy-efficient dishwashers tend to lengthen cycle times by reusing water during the wash and then draining it away completely to refill for the clean water rinse. However, the Electrolux maintains short cycle times. With the normal cycle, the dishwasher takes 113 minutes. That is impressively short, especially considering the average run time for our lineup was 131 minutes.
This Electrolux dishwasher offers a plethora of wash cycles and options. The unit supports auto wash, delicate, eco-wash, favorite, heavy, normal, perfect stemware and rinse-only cycles. Having so many choices is nice, and some of the cycles are convenient for specific dish types. The delicate and stemware cycles can help you protect special investments, such as expensive goblets, and it can save time to program your favorite cycle setting and just select “favorite” for most messes. You can reserve the heavy cycle for the most stubborn messes.
The different wash options include variable spray pressures that help clean different types of dishes. The dishwasher also has target wash zones where you can put your heavily soiled dishes or bottles for a more thorough cleaning. The unit also features heated dry, or you can let your dishes air-dry to save energy.
This dishwasher is one of the easiest to use. To determine its ease of use, we evaluated the capacity, flexibility, conveniences and cycle options the dishwasher offers. It has three racks with fold-down tines and adjustable positions, as well as three spray arms. Older machines typically have only two spray arms; the third arm increases the odds of reaching all the stuck-on food. The dishwasher holds up to 12 place settings and has nine different cycle options.
Additionally, it has several convenience features. The delay-start timer can save you money if your area offers cheaper power rates for off-peak times. You can set the dishwasher to run during less-expensive times, often in the middle of the night. The soil sensors use an infrared signal to determine whether the water circulating during a load is clean or not. If the water is dirty, the sensor assumes the dishes are still dirty and extends the cycle automatically. The controls are dormant until you touch them, and then the display lights up. You can lock these controls so you don’t have curious kids running unnecessary loads or opening the machine in the middle of cycles.
The dishwasher lacks a hard-food disposer, though, which means the filter requires manual cleanings. Though some folks prefer this so they can see for themselves that the filter is cleaned on a regular basis, it takes more time to clean the filter yourself. You may have to pre-rinse dirty dishes to keep the filter from clogging too often.
This built-in dishwasher operates quietly at 47 dB. You can barely hear it running, though this is still not the quietest dishwasher. This machine has a stainless steel tub that helps insulate it, making it operate quietly. The exterior is also stainless steel, and it has a bar handle to open and close it.
Electrolux offers solid warranty coverage on this dishwasher. For the first year, the parts and labor are covered. The racks and electronics are under warranty for five years, with the tub and door liner receiving a lifetime warranty. You can reach the company by phone, email or live chat.
The Electrolux IQ-Touch EI24ID50QS stands out in our dishwasher reviews. Its wide variety of wash cycles, options and features makes it easy to clean both your delicate and heavily soiled dishes. This versatile dishwasher has wash zones that reduce the need for prewashing. While you have to clean the filter manually, its versatility and intuitive design make it an otherwise strong and energy-efficient dishwasher.

The Electrolux 24″ Built-in Dishwasher with IQ-Touch Controls #EI24ID50QS received excellent scores in our cleaning and drying evaluations. The dishwasher offers very good capacity, especially for flatware, and the racks are easy to load, but we did find the cutlery tray more difficult to load and keep organized than those of other models we tested. We love that this machine includes flexible stemware grips and cushions the snap on the top and bottom racks to provide additional support for delicate items that could get dislodged during the wash cycle. The Electrolux received an average score for noise level while operating and scored just above average for energy efficiency.
Features: Flexible water nozzles to clean inside bottles and other narrow glassware; soft-grip stemware holders; soft rack cushions in upper basket to help secure glassware and plastic items; cup shelves and stemware support on both top and bottom racks; height-adjustable upper rack; removable filter; 30-minute fast wash cycle; stemware cycle; sanitize option; favorite cycle; blue floor light to indicate cycle completion
How We Tested: We evaluated 18 dishwashers, testing each machine’s auto/normal cleaning cycle and heavy duty cleaning cycle, capacity for dishes/glasses and flatware, drying on auto/normal cycle and heavy duty cycle, and the effectiveness of rinsing, after which we looked for spotting and filming. We also reviewed each machine’s ease of use, water and energy usage, and how loud or quiet the dishwasher was while operating.
