    I can assure you, it's not a joke. I would make sure I had a method of getting out if it became unbearable. Can the drying cycle on a dishwasher be disabled? I imagine there must be some kind of heater in there to dry it, just cut it out?
    I just checked out my dishwasher, and we have just a rinse setting, so that would be ideal, although the lowest temperature is 50 degrees. I don't think you'd get one that does 30 because its ment to wash it in really hot water to kill the germs. Only washing machines do 30.

    Well to be honest, I hope you do it if only because of its danger.

    I don't necessarily want you to die, mind, your testicles' ability to create sperm would be fine, so long as you don't have any kids. Good God, you absolute ****.

    Well you're not going to be able to open it from the inside.

    Surely you would a) be horribly burnt b) drown c) suffocate d) all of the above.

    Don't do it. 400 quid, and for what? Appearing in the Daily Mail under the headline 'Drunken teen in dishwasher death horror.'

    Kudos for an overactive imagination.

    Thigns to consider - most dishwashers have a heating element in the base. If you remove the tray then you'll need to either sit on the base where there is no element or squat (horrid word) with your feet in that position - cramping? Assuming you go with the latter, you could then essentailly tuck your face into your chest, whereby your forehead would provide you with some protection from the stream of water from the top rotor.

    Assuming you've had enough - how are you going to signal to get out? Two thuds on the side? Can it be heard?

    How tall are you anyway? D'washers are pretty compact. Industrial ones are scarily hot. Don't use one of those.

    BTW, if you do do it, then make sure you have a mate there who will take it seriously if you need to get out.

    Eco setting might be less hot? Dunno. Anyway, if you do it be careful.

    Haha. That's crazy.

    Could you actually die getting in a dishwasher when it's on?

    My dishwasher at home doesn't have any temperatures above 60C. But then, it was a cheap one that's quite old.

    I won't drown, have you ever opened a dishwasher in midwash? It isn't full of water. I could I suppose accidentally step on the drainage hole, but this is unlikely and all I'd need to do would be move my feet.

    I'm thinking I might buy a cheap dishwasher out the paper. Should get something reasonable for £20. Then, drill a hole in it with a hose for air. To communicate with the outside, I'd have a switch that needed to be held constantly, if I let go of it, it would immediately signal a light outside to the guys that the bet stops and I need out.

    I would also disconnect the heating element. I'm a bit anxious of the drying cycle killing me. I might get hypothermia this way, but could wear a wetsuit for warmth to prevent it.

    I am 6'2 and quite muscular, but I am reasonably supple and can fit in, I've tried. Just got to take it slowly getting in.

    I take care of myself, I minimise every risk I can.

    Unless your dishwasher, like mine, has an Eco setting

    OP - don't do it, unless you have a death wish. Also, most (at least all I've ever seen) don't run unless the door is completely shut - meaning you won't be able to get out, and it's not like you can take a mobile in there to phone a friend to let you out.

    Even if they took out my parent's dishwasher's racks I still doubt I could fit inside it, and I'm not even the bulkiest of guys...
    If the op says he can fit inside it then who are we to argue ?
