PRINCETON, N.J., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At Miele, the truth lies in the
numbers. We call it SoundTruth™. In America, no dishwasher is quieter than a
Miele, a claim only Miele, the world's largest family owned appliance
manufacturer can make with resounding confidence. Other leading dishwasher
manufacturers tout similar claims, but what they fail to reveal is the


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

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.

The SoundTruth^™

Dishwasher noise levels are rated in decibels, the lower the decibel, the
quieter the dishwasher. A difference of just a few decibels may not seem
significant, but a dishwasher that is just one decibel higher is actually, 30
percent louder. A dishwasher that is 3 decibels higher is twice as loud or
equivalent to the noise made when running two dishwashers simultaneously.

The testing proved, not only does the Miele Futura Diamond dishwasher produce
the lowest decibel of 37 dBA^*, but Miele was also the only brand to maintain
its levels for both 'clean' and 'soiled' loads.

"The combination of an advanced insulation system, turbidity sensors and a
powerful pump ensures Miele consistently and efficiently manages sound,
without sacrificing performance," said Dirk Sappok, Product Development Group
Manager at Miele. "Simply stated, no dishwasher is quieter or cleans better
than a Miele. We're so confident that if our customers are not completely
convinced their Miele is the quietest and best-cleaning dishwasher they have
ever owned, Miele will fully refund their purchase within 90 days. We are the
only industry manufacturer to offer such a quality assurance guarantee."

This standard of uncompromising performance maintains that a Miele dishwasher
will not only outperform, but also significantly outlast others on the market.
