Dishwashers - energy variability in different uses

Three dishwasher models were selected for the tests representing different price levels,energy efficiency classes, number of place settings and from three different brands: A total of 62 tests were performed with the three models. The tests followed a simplified measurement procedure compared to the measurement standard EN 50242, focusing on measuring the energy consumption. Various test parameters were changed to investigate a) if the dishwashers might be recognising a test situation and adapting their performance accordingly, and b) to quantify the difference between the declared energy consumption on the Energy Label and the one that can occur when used differently.
