...the repairman was here for 25 minutes. For some reason he pulled the front panel off the machine. He also managed to find a lot of dust under the kitchen cupboards. And he made a disastrous mess of the hoarded cleaners and potions beneath the kitchen sink.
He presented me a bill for 63 euros. He pushed the two buttons simultaneously on the control panel that are clearly marked "reset." The dishwasher magically worked.
Wow. I guess 'reset' is the same word in German. Oopsie.
