Dishwashers in The Sims are standalone appliances, and the surface of a dishwasher can be used for food preparation. Broken dishwashers will leak, creating floods that need to be mopped up. Sims can and will use broken dishwashers, and using a broken dishwasher will cause even more flooding. Trying to repair a dishwasher without mopping up the floods in front of it increases the risk of electrocution.
Due to the way objects work in The Sims, recolors of Maxis objects are separate objects. Therefore, recolors of Maxis dishwashers may have prices that are different from the originals.
Kids are able to use dishwashers, even though the game states that they can only be used by adults.

Whimsy Wash Dishwasher by KitchenArtEdit
Many companies try to make their dishwashers sound "intelligent"- but who wants an appliance that's smarter than YOU are? The Whimsy Wash is a modest, hard-working (but not terribly bright) appliance with an overabundant sense of style and functionality. The washer features both "Kinda Clean" and "Pretty Darn Clean" settings, and the handcrafted cabinet front helps the Whimsy complement your kitchen - rather than upstage it!
The Sims 2Edit
In The Sims 2, dishwashers must be placed under a regular counter; they cannot be placed under an island-style counter. The moveobjects cheat is not required for this. Unlike The Sims, broken dishwashers do not leak, and cannot be used.

The Sims 3Edit

The Sims 4Edit
In The Sims 4, dishwashers must be placed under a regular ("tile") counter and cannot be placed otherwise even with the help of the moveobjects cheat (a tooltip saying "Must be placed on a large surface" will appear). Broken dishwashers will leak, but still can be used, causing more leakage. There is no risk of electrocution in The Sims 4 (as of November 2015), so Sims don't have to worry about mopping up before fixing the broken dishwasher.
