  The Hotpoint HDA2000VWW is a basic dishwasher that should work well for a small household (up to three people). Although it doesn't have the multitude of features available on more expensive models, it does include a removable upper rack, a hard food disposer to grind up and wash away pieces of food, a heated dry option and an internal water heater to maintain consistent temperatures throughout a wash cycle. Noise levels during operation should be about average to slightly louder than most new dishwashers.

Models: HDA2000VWW (White), HDA2000VBB (Black), HDA2040VSA (Silver Metallic)

What People Are Saying:

A top seller at Home Depot, the HDA200VWW has garnered mostly positive user reviews, although there is a small group of owners dissatisfied with its cleaning capability. In slightly fewer than 50 reviews at Home Depot, close to 70% recommend this machine, calling it functional and good for the price. But even those who like it mention that they have to pre-rinse their dishes because otherwise it doesn't get all the food off. Several say it was a good purchase for a rental unit, although they note it can be a little loud.
