When you talk about dialects then you have to go to England.The U.S. and Canada have no English dialects.
I am not talking about accents or people who speak English badly.

Here is a Wikipedia list of American dialects. There is no universally accepted list, but this is a reasonably good one.
Within a dialect group, there are often sub dialects. For example, I live in Michigan and am part of the Northern dialect. However, Michigan has some words, pronunciations, etc that are unique to it, compared to other states in the Northern group.
Within Michigan, there are subtle differences as well. The Upper Peninsula sound s a bit different from the Lower Peninsula. I was raised in Norther Lower Michigan, but now live in the Detroit area. Most people don't notice, but a few can tell that I am not native to the Detroit area.

No two people are going to agree on this one. Roughly, there are from six to eight dialects in American English. But the minute one says "New England" or "Midwestern" or "Southern" (there, I named 3, and that's all I'll give a name to), somebody else will want to disagree, saying "his Southern is not the same as my Southern English" , etc. etc.
