Second that. My dishwasher occasionally leaked and it was a devil to find.
Turned out the water-level sensor was so caked with grease, chicken-fat,
raisin rinds, and other effluvia that the float would STICK in the down
position and more water would be supplied, eventually running out on the
There's nasty down in there. Nasty with a capital NAS.
Yeah - many dishwashers have a funky head exchanger "matrix" through which
the waste water and incoming clean water pass, moving otherwise wasted heat
into the incoming water. The one I've seen on my Bosch is quite tortuous
inside so if anything is going to suffer, that will be one of the first
waterways to get skanked up.

How in the world does that happen? In almost all cases, the incoming
water is as hot or hotter than the water that's already in the
dishwasher. Even on the ones where the dishwasher can heat the water
itself, they generally only do it on cycles where you select extra
heat. Otherwise the max temp is limited to the 130F incoming
water. So, I don't see how this alleged heat recovery heat exchanger
is going to work. In fact, in most cases it would seem to me that it
would result in heat loss, not heat gain.
