The ideal size for a small dishwasher is whatever width your cabinets are next to the sink. Standard cabinet widths are 12 15 and 18 inches. There are plenty of 18 inch dishwashers for about $400 each. They typically fit eight plate settings which would work for a family of three. 15 inch dishwashers are far and few between none of the major retailers has one. So if the cabinets next to your sink are 15 inches or less you may want to skip an under counter dishwasher all together and try one of the newer counter top dishwashers.
Counter top dishwashers are also called "portable dishwashers". If you are working in a truly minuscule kitchen being able to pack up the dishwasher and put it in a closet when not in use might be a good thing. Otherwise you will need to sacrifice some of your already reduced counter space for the dishwasher. The good news is that these counter top dishwashers cost about $250 and they usually fit four place settings which is enough for two people. So if you can find even 24 inches of counter space in your little kitchen you can still get a dishwasher.
So now that we've defined standard let's talk small. Small dishwashers dishwashers 18 inches or narrower are actually pretty common these days. Amazon.com has a few of them for sale as does Sears Best Buy Lowes and others. You can get them for $400 or less. The thing to pay attention to is how high they are. If the dishwasher you want is a different height than your counter it is not the end of the world but you will have to make some adjustments if you want your counter top to stay level. It is easy if the dishwasher is shorter than the counter top your installer just puts the dishwasher on a little platform to make it even. But if it is taller than the counter you'll have to get used to having a bit of counter space a few inches higher.
