A crack team of Carnegie-Mellon students attempt to stop college roommates from improperly loading a dishwasher which results in cruddy dishes, a waste of energy, and often some hard feelings :(
What was our solution? Follow the steps below to see. Keep in mind, what's shown is a prototype that doesn't address certain concerns such as, oh, water in an electrical circuit :0 So we don't recommend installing this exact setup in your own dishwasher, unless you do a little re-design.
