well, crap.

I'm sitting here cheerfully checking in on the forums and I hear dripping water. Coming from the kitchen.

Excuse me while I go handwash these dishes and bail out the dishwasher.

You make me laugh! Seriously, my dishwasher died over a year ago, and I am still washing those dishes by hand. Seriously, I think it kept me healthier this winter because my hands were always in soapy hot water! We still haven't bothered to replace it.

You are braver women then me - mine was out for about a month before Christmas, and I was willing to pay anything to get it fixed!

I have been having the same problem with my washing machine lately. I guess I am going to have to find a rock to beat my clothes on soon. What is going on with these appliances? Must be something in the water lol.

Bummer. I have to admit that I would be happy in your situation. Our dishwasher works often enough that I can't justify replacing it. It fails often enough to make me really hate it. I hope there is a nice one with a built-in disposal in your future. Those things are amazing, but my standards are kind of low. Dirty dishes in, clean dishes out is a rare occurrence around here.

Brandi, I think it depends a lot on where you live -- every single house in the East Valley in Phoenix seems to have a dishwasher, but when I moved to Pittsburgh they became hard to find. About a year and a half ago I moved into a rental house that had a portable dishwasher that hooks up to the sink, my first Pittsburgh dishwasher.

I took it apart today and it works again now!

Yeah, that leaky dishwasher happened . . . three days postpartum. We called a repair guy who came and fixed it, 'cause, well, three days after a c-section just isn't the time to be taking a dishwasher apart to fix it yourself, kwim?

Usually, that dripping water sound implies that the kids (4 and 2) are playing in the sink again.
