  • My dishwasher broke AND

    I upon taking it out I was curious what the noise isolation material they used was. It looks like maybe cotton. Very dense compared to the “dense” poly I have. I wonder if this stuff is commercially available? My darn dishwasher (when it is working) is very quiet. So much so in fact I routinely open it when it is running and make a mess. I have to assume that noise control blanket is helping.

    Pull some out to share with the class...I would expect simply fibreglass in a dishwasher, it can be pressed fairly dense which is often what you find in acoustic panels and tiles.
    Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers, you get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers. Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways it's still rock and roll to me!

      I would have also but it is clearly not fiberglass. I would put money on Cotton. I can take a picture as I plan on fixing the DW

        This is on the inside of the door. The top and sides are covered as well.

          Kinda looks like Ultratouch, but in white.

            That's what I thought too. But why would they spend the money to bleach it?

              Thermoplastic (nylon, polyester, PVC, etc.) it will have a melting point typically well under 300o F and some begin to soften under 200o F. Maybe some boiling water could shed some light on the material.

                I've seen that before, I think it might be polyester, don't quote me on that though.

                  Seems like you lifted the veil on your dishwasher.

                    Well I am fixing the DW so I am not going to experiment on it I will however, figure out what it is.

                          How is that Ultratouch for speakers? since they are both cotton I am assuming they have similar qualities.

                            It's great stuff for inside speakers, that's for sure!
