Consistent results have been received across four Australian laboratories testing dishwasher energy consumption to the international standard. The E3 program funded tests of the same dishwasher units to check the reliability and repeatability of testing.
Tests were conducted on a Bosch and Miele dishwasher in accordance with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60436 Electric dishwashers for household use - Methods for measuring the performance (Edition 4). The testing results provided regulators with confidence that the standard can provide a sound basis for regulating the energy consumption of dishwashers in our region.
