Dishwasher noise is one of the major features in selecting a dishwasher. Amana dishwashers are highly rated, inexpensive but give no noise numbers. I emailed Amana and got the following answer.

These Amana decibel numbers are very good in comparison. If they are correct, the Amana is a good deal quieter than the average Kenmore (59 dB), and as quiet as the lower end Bosch (53 dB) for quite a bit less money.
Can anyone give any backup to these Amana dB noise number either through personal experience or otherwise?
