What is the decibel rating of my Kenmore Ultra Wash III model number 665664991 dishwasher?

This is an older dishwasher and in the market for a new one. Trying to determine what the dBA is on it so that I can determine what would be quieter based on this rating.

The decibel rating of my Kenmore model number 665664991 Ultra Wash dishwasher is not available on this particular older model but I can provide you with some relevant information.

It's normal for dishwashers to operate between 45 and 70 decibels (dB) and the older models will be closer to the 70dBA level.

High end (expensive) dishwasher run in the 45-50 dBA range while more economical dishwasher will run about 60-70 dBA.

Use the chart below to help understand decibel levels.

Noise Comparison Chart


Soft whisper 30dB.

Conversation 66dB.

Noisy restaurant 80dB.

Walk-behind Mower 107dB.

Car horn 120dB.

I hope this information helps you shop for a replacement dishwasher.
