I just started up the dishwasher and went in the other room to read my email before I go to bed. As I'm sitting here reading my email I keep hearing this dripping. I go in the kitchen to see an inch of standing water in the floor. I'm not sure what caused it but it's not doing it anymore. It took me a while to clean up the mess and now I'm letting to dishwasher run and hoping it doesn't do it again. I can't go to bed until it finishes it's final rinse to make sure it doesn't flood again. Man it's a good thing I didn't just let the dishwasher run and go on to bed. That would have been a disaster to wake up to in the morning!

YIKES!! The last time I heard about that was the time my neighbour poured liquid soap in his dishwasher and he had about 3 feet of bubbles ooze out of his dishwasher. It took him weeks to clean up that mess. LOL

My home has been flooded twice because of roots growing in the outside pipes. So my washing machine water had no where to go so backed up through both toilets. It cost a lot of money to have it all sucked out of my fitted carpets, then big fans were brought to dry them. Now I get "Roter Rooter" to go down the pipes every year.
