A design discussion

Sponsored and Hosted by Whirlpool Corporation

Whirlpool Corporation to Discuss Function, Features and Design of Today’s Dishwashers


Dishwashers have come a long way since Josephine Cochran patented the very first “dish washing machine” in 1886 after growing tired of the tedious task of handwashing dishes. This appliance plays a critical role in just about everyone’s home — especially during the pandemic when families were stuck inside and dishes were piling up faster than usual.


With many homeowners expected to retain a work from home schedule at least for part of the week, and as wellness remains a top priority, consumers will continue to rely on the dishwasher to keep the heart of the home clean and organized.


Join Whirlpool Corporation on Wednesday, June 16, as the company leads a KBTribeChat focused on dishwashers — exploring how they’ve evolved, what consumers expect from this appliance, and how they fit into today’s kitchen designs.


Whirlpool Corporation, the world’s leading kitchen and laundry appliance company, designs appliance solutions that offer ways to improve life at home. The Whirlpool Corporation brand portfolio has been thoughtfully designed to help building industry professionals meet the needs and wants of today’s home buyers, whether they need a compact dishwasher for an in-law suite, or a dishwasher with plenty of space to load more dishes at one time.

Save the date for 2 p.m. ET Wednesday, June 16 as Whirlpool Corporation hosts a discussion focused on dishwashers.

Preview our KBtribechat questions:


• How have dishwashers evolved over the last decade?

Did you hear that? We didn’t either.

In America, no dishwasher is quieter than a Miele. Other leading dishwasher manufacturers tout similar claims, but what they fail to reveal is the SoundTruth™.

Sponsor and host Miele, Inc, the world’s largest family-owned appliance company will lead our July 10th discussion on KBTribeChat all about dishwashers. Join us from 2 to 3PM EST on Twitter by adding #kbtribechat to your tweets, or stay tuned to @KBTribeChat and @MieleUSA for the Tweetchat link.

 

SoundTruth_Miele_forkbtribechat-1

This discussion will be all about Miele dishwashers and help you uncover the SoundTruth – because at Miele, the truth lies in the numbers.

Miele recently commissioned Owens Corning Acoustics Research Center (OCARC) to conduct extensive independent comparative dishwasher testing. Tests were conducted on both ‘clean’ and ‘soiled’ loads, simulating a true, at-home application.

 

MieleFuturaDiamond-1

The tests showed that when soiling was introduced, a leading manufacturer, who aggressively promotes low sound levels, recorded an increase of 6 decibel levels as compared to its advertised sound levels, while Miele Dishwashers maintained the same decibel rating.

Here are our discussion questions.  Be sure to do your homework!  We look forward to chatting with you.

Q1: How many Miele dishwashers have you specified?

Q2: What is the most important feature in a dishwasher?

Q3: How important is the “quiet factor” when it comes to dishwashers?

Q4: A DW that is 3 decibels higher is equivalent to the noise made when running how many dishwashers simultaneously?

Q5: What dishwasher would you guess is the quietest in America?

Here is the transcript for this #kbtribechat.
