Default Additional dishwasher soundproofing

I've seen posts on this group about adding a little sound proofing to
a dishwasher by installing it on top of a indoor/outdoor carpet
(rubber?) and lining the opening of the cabinet with insulation.

Could anyone suggest specific products for this easily available from
your typical building supplies etc store?

Thanks

I'm not sure this would do a whole lot, actually. At least in my
experience, the supplied insulation forms a fairly decent "fit" between the
dishwasher and the surrounding cabinets and countertop, so I'm not real
sure how much extra insulation you'd fit in there without creating problems
fitting the dishwasher itself into the opening unless you had a larger
opening than a normal dishwasher opening.

Plus, your surrounding cabinets (at least when closed) act as something of
a baffle/insulation as well, which limits the propagation of sound off the
side.

Where you probably want extra sound insulation is in the door itself, since
that's the part that's open and exposed and where you probably get most of
the noise.

Go to a marine supply store and ask for the liner material for engine boxes.
There are lead-based and lead-free versions available. A few web links from a
quick google search:

A few years ago, I made our dishwasher a lot quieter by wrapping
the hoses in some carpet pad material and duct tape. One of the
hoses must have been vibrating against the floor. It was a world
of difference.

As for insulating the feet, the first thing to do is to make sure it is
sitting on all four feet about equally weighted. If you think it needs
some padding, then just pieces cut from an old tire inner tube might
do the job, and you can still slide the unit in and out easily if needed.

Thanks for your tips folks!

Yeah, soundproofing materials used in marine applications would fit
the bill perfectly (resistant to mildew etc).

I've also heard that a lot of the noise is from the water intake and
drain, so yeah i will also try wrapping the hoses.

Thanks Again,
Mike
