For almost two years, a Miele dishwasher has been running non-stop in a long-term endurance test at Miele’s Bielefeld factory in Germany. According to Miele, the dishwasher has outlasted the self-imposed criteria that each appliance be tested to withstand everyday usage for 20 years, which equates to 12,500 hours of operation or 7,500 program cycles.

George Tjoumakaris, Communications Specialist at Miele in Princeton, NJ, U.S., said that the public endurance test on the dishwasher has been streamed live online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The involves the use of detergent, rinse aid, and salt. The test routine is fully automatic, allowing the dishwasher to run unattended overnight, on weekends and during holidays. The model being tested uses 3.4 gallons of water per cycle.
