Dishwasher Sound Insulation
Here is a quick pic of our old dishwasher. It did the job dutifully for many years. Its never been particularly quiet. It has a plastic tub and minimal insulation that is covered in what looks like your average every day garbage bag.
Sound is where dishwashers have improved by leaps and bounds over the last 10 years. This is the sound insulation on the top (yellowish) and back (black) of the new dishwasher.
The new one also has outer metal sides and has more of the fabric insulating material between the outer metal sides and the innter stainless tub. The build quality on the Miele is remarkably better than our old machine. Everything about it feels solid and well made. My 17 year old son, always the funny guy, asked me if I was going to put a garbage bag over the new one to keep it pretty. I could not convince him that the old one was actually MADE that way. He thought I had rigged up a home made cover.
