Fun Facts
Did you know that your dishwasher has a sensor in it that tells it when to shut off the water because the water level in the bottom of the washer is high enough?

No, I did not know that. How fascinating.

Do you know what happens if that sensor becomes covered in suds and cannot tell how much water there is?

Not a clue. Do tell.

It keeps putting water into the dishwasher until the water reaches the level of the hinge-y part of the door, and then the water races out to freedom, making a nice waterfall down the baseboard. This then makes a very nice little lake all over the kitchen floor. Maybe it will even go into the pantry! Or under the stove! Perhaps it will make it all the way to the edge of the carpet, where it will get absorbed and make nice ever-so-slightly discolored patches! Isn't that exciting?

Quite. I wish I lived your adventurous life.

The added benefit is that our kitchen floor is now cleaner than it has been since we moved in. And I know all about dishwashers now. My life has been enriched immensely.
