Has the average dishwasher run time increased?
If you used to have an older dishwasher, you may remember that it likely took less time to wash your dishes than your newer dishwasher. That’s because of advances in technology, as well as changes in federal energy and water use guidelines.
Today’s dishwashers use less water and energy than older models, making them more efficient than dishwashers in the past. That means they need to run longer to get the same level of performance and allow sensors to assess whether your dishes are being properly cleaned.
