Well, it was all a scare. Turns out that a small measuring spoon fell into the bottom of the dishwasher and blocked the spinner thing (don't know or care what it's called). Since that thing wasn't spinning, the dishwasher didn't know to release the soap. Shew! That was a close one.
What does the picture have to do with the post? Nothing, but she looked scared too. So seriously, no more appliance talk.
