Nice video, BUT why not wait until the dishwasher was full and then run it thru the cycle as that is the more efficient way to do it. I filled mine full tonight and its running right now. No way I am going to eat off a vehicle.

The phenomenon goes beyond culture differences.  People can be so weird about dishwashers.  A friend a while ago on Facebook posed the question of who among her circle has a dishwasher but doesn't use it.  Numerous goofys replied to the affirmative.

Maybe someone needed to video me, after my wife washed a couple of pans by hand claiming that there was no room for them in the dishwasher, as there was a multitude of dishes, cups, silverware, utensils and glasses all over the counter that would also have to go in there, as I just hadn't emptied the previous load, making me angry enough, that my favorite non-stick pan out of the two suffered a loose handle (may have to go to you guys on how to go about tightening it, as the screw is rusted & pretty stripped, but the inside is fairly scratched, and there is a long gouge from cutting a hunk of beef in a rather careless way, that I insist, especially from the seemingly crappy job the hand washing did, leaving the surfaces in there still gunked up with the remnants of its formerly cooked food, and in my paranoia, just went about making my corn beef hash in the one pan, and in the still-good non-stick frying a couple jumbo sunny side up eggs...


Hence, I could quickly afterwards, conjure up (they used a LOT of stuff after that previous load!) enough to turn the dishwasher on again, right after that near-Midnight meal that I would have other wise been too tired for or resigned myself to make the next day (I had just gotten home from work, and seemingly had the "tomorrow" of, off, or at least in the morning and it may have been a Saturday, the only day we don't have to set alarms for school, only if I have to do my one for a weekend early shift), then, right away...


P.S. I like the BD's Mongolian Grill on the car's (hood? trunk?) at the end...

My 4-year old KitchenAid dishwasher is a sore spot with me. It went down last Sept. or so with a bad control board, luckily I bought the 5 year extended warranty on it when I bought it, and had it fixed for free. It's down again, doing the same thing: not heating. The board did not even last 3 months!!! I'm calling them again after Christmas to come back out here and fix it again (still in the warranty). KitchenAid is trading on its name / reputation, cause it's sure not like the machines of yesteryear...thank-you Whirlpool. What gets me is that I didn't even use it everyday. I've been trying to figure out how to reboot it, hoping to fix it, before I call them again. Something about pressing two buttons 5 times, according to YouTube video I watched.....but no luck. I don't think they make a decent dishwasher anymore, anything that holds up.
So I'll be happy with my bottle of lemon scented Joy or Ajax until then. At least I get done with dishes without having to go back and unload. If my Dad were in treatments, I'd be having a cow. Sigh!!!!!
