No good very bad day

I watched little Megan last night and sat the two little ones at the table for some healthy snacks (not so much... remember I'm the fun aunt).

I was making dinner and turned on the dishwasher because I'm too lazy to wash the dinner dishes by hand.

I saw smoke - I assumed it was steam. I smelled burning - I assumed it was my dinner. I quickly realized - duh it was the dishwasher trying to burn my house down...

I opened it and a cloud of smoke filled my kitchen. I have no idea what happened. Do you think this is a minor problem? I really don't want to have to wash my dishes by hand. I'm spoiled. Anybody have any suggestions?

This has happened to me on more than one occasion. I bet something plastic fell in the bottom of the dishwasher onto the heating element and it started melting/stinking/smoking. You might want to check down there.

I just make my husband do the dishes. Solves a lot of problems.
