My wife and I have a love/hate relationship with the dishwasher. We're happy with the clean dishes which it produces but we hate the way the dishwasher tells us when it has finished. 

It beeps. Not once. Not twice, but five times. If neither of us do anything about it it repeats the process every minute until we do. 

Unfortunately, one of us once made the mistake of swearing at the machine when turning the beep off. The dishwasher was very upset by this and in order to get its own back, it is now very specific with its beeping. It carefully times the noise to coincide either with the most gripping part of the TV program we're watching or else when it senses that one of us is having a nap. 

What's more, the dishwasher has also called on the services of the washing machine, which is clearly in the same union, to do the same thing. 

We've tried keeping the kitchen door closed but we can still hear the beeps. 

Does anyone know of a good sound-proofing company who might help us?

  1. Hmm, this seems to be an internationally shared problem; love not doing the dishes but hate begin bullied by a machine.
