The following conditions and parameters apply to the current Miele dishwasher endurance test which came under starter's orders on March 1, 2007:
  • Testing uses the 'Automatic' programme, i.e. testing is performed at a temperature of 55-65°C
  • Machine must run non-stop for at least 7,500 programme cycles. This corresponds to approx. 12,500 hours of operation and a life cycle of 20 years when used by a family of four 7 times a week.
  • The dishwasher is in operation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Testing is only interrupted to refill detergent, salt and rinse aid.
