Video: Journey Into the Dishwasher

Dishwashers. They sure seem like they’re on our side. But what are they really after? What do they really do behind those closed doors? I sent my waterproof camera and waterproof torch to find out.

Okay, so maybe I was trying to figure out why my dishwasher didn’t wash very well and the relative positions of the camera and torch didn’t lead to any useful data. But I think the result still looks interesting, up until the torch turns off, and it sounds pretty cool too, from about 1:40 onward. I wonder if it would be pleasing to people who experience ASMR, or supremely annoying for people with certain kinds of misophonia. Or perhaps it’ll just be good ambient sounds for relaxing.

The music at the beginning is part of something I was working on a while ago in order to experiment with weird chords. Eventually I’ll probably turn it into a ‘song’ about space shuttles.

    I’ve always wondered what goes on behind the dishwasher door. Although this video didn’t satisfy my curiosity, it is, indeed, a fantastic ASMR clip. 🙂

      Nice to know! I don’t get ASMR but I’ve seen a few videos that are meant to provoke it and the dishwasher sounds seemed somehow similar.

      I’m tempted to try to get a better clip, but my camera was really hot when I took it out, and I realised that the dishwasher is hotter than its recommended operating temperature, so it might be dangerous to do it again, unless perhaps I surround the camera with ice.
