    If you do it and it does somehow go wrong and you die (which I doubt)

    I will nominate you for a darwin award, you deserve that at least.

    What will your mates be doing for an hour whilst you are in the washer?

    You said you'd hook up a panic light but are you sure they'd be watching it all the time so they'd notice?

    Even if they were watching it all the time, dishwashers normally don't have a manual override to stop the process, at least not on one's I've ever seen! If the door is locked then they surely they won't be able to get you out even if you wanted them to?

    (Btw I've never used a dishwasher, I'm making this assumption based on washing machines, which I also recommend you don't try!)

    I am impressed.

    I would suggest you don't do it... BUT.

    If you do, can you please leave written instruction with login name and password to go onto this thread just so we can find out if you died heroically?

    I'm pretty sure you can just open them whenever, since I don't think they actually fill with water like washing machines do.

    You can, or at least you can with my one. Press the power button, ten seconds later you can open the door. But if this goes ahead we certainly need to get ready with a darwin award...

    I've no idea. But if you're OK, tell me and then I'll make the same bet for £400 .

    I think it'll be OK. I'd take a bottle of cold water with you to keep you hydrated. And maybe strap ice to strategic parts of your body.

    Yeh and definitely make sure of that escape route lol

    Maybe you should meditate inside.

    Keep cool!! and good luck

    Peace oout xx

    Yeah, I thought of this too. The switch won't be completely submerged. And it'll be pretty low voltage too. So I won't be electricuted. And I will calibrate it before to make sure it works perfect.

    Yes, I have put a lot of thought into this, because I love to win a bet. And the money makes it worthwhile too. And not many people can say they've survived a dishwasher cycle, I can use it to pull.

    It'd work on you right, if I slid up beside you, gave you a smile, looked into your eyes and whispered into your ear, "Hey Vicko, have you ever made out with a guy who survived a dishwasher cycle before?"
    If someone said that to me i'd be walking away quickly. You are mad, totally. firstly for making such a stupid bet and secondly for actually planning and putting so much thought into actually going through with it.

    well if you want to enter into the darwin awards and get some recognition for doing this then feel free to go in a dish washer.

    the £400 would go well towards something useful....

    I was out yesterday, got talking to some guys while slightly intoxicated, and the subject of dishwashers came up. I have a bit of a reputation for doing crazy bets. So, to cut a long story short, I have been challenged to go in a dishwasher and stay in it for one full cycle, with the door shut and everything. There is a lot of money riding on this bet (400 quid minimum), so I'm definately up for it.

    I made sure it was a 30C cycle, and that there was no detergent added, as I don't want scalded. And that the racks for dishes are removed, as otherwise I won't fit in.

    I imagine it's going to be like a sauna, but colder, and pitch black. I also might get cramp because a dishwasher cycle takes an hour or so. But, what I wonder is, are dishwashers airtight? Because I don't want to sufficate. I may attach an airhose to the outside to allow me to breathe if this is the case. Also, how hot does a dishwasher get on the drying bit? Dishes always seem really hot when they come out.


    Your thoughts are appreciated.
    :five: HERO!! How are you going to breathe? Small oxygen tank? haha I want this filmed and stuck on here, such an unreal bet to do.
    Worth the money in my eyes.

    erm, email the dishwasher company, the model details, and ask how hot the drying is and if it can be disabled. Aside from that, you should be fine. Check it out first though.
