Yep! Happened to me the first week I was in my first apartment. Suds all over the friggin' place! Had a clean floor afterwards, though! [:D] NEVER made that mistake again... BTW, didn't do anything to the dishwasher. DID have to run "Rinse" a few times, though...

Happened to me a long time ago. No damage to the machine.

It's not junk. You didn't break it. One thing tho...dishwasher soap is low sudsing for a very good reason. Just a little bit of the dishwashing liquid like Dawn makes lots of pretty bubbles. I'd of liked to have seen that...sort of like when ensign Pulver blew up the laundry. Oh...FWIW...I did it too once...just once. My missus damn neared killed me! [;D]

Never did it to a dishwasher, but about 20-22 years ago my best friends little brother didn't think the jaccuzzi had enough bubbles in it so he threw in 1/2 cup of Dawn. We bucketed bubbles outside for an hour, trying to get it cleaned up before his parents got home. No, we didn't make it, mostly because noone seemed to know how to shut the jaccuzzi off.

My brother did the dishwasher thing--mom called home and he was like "we made a mistake but don't worry, we cleaned it up." Yeah, like mom won't worry after hearing that! As for the jacuzzi, my wife and I spent the better part of an intimate night at a hotel learning the hard way that the jacuzzi makes plenty of bubbles without bubble bath...

Washing machines do the same thing, too. Don't ask how I know this. I just do.
