I don't know how long I've been on strike for, but today, after at least a month, I tried my dishwasher again.
It just started working.
Looks like my strike paid off after all!
See? Who says you can't force machines to do fix their attitude by ignoring them?
Just in time too, I don't think I was going to be able to use that glass again. The crusty skin marks (like the ones you get on your mouse) were starting to get a bit much..
