well, my electric tripped one night a few weeks back. didn't know what it was, anyway next night i open the dishwasher and this ball of fire flies out. Trips the electric again, thinking back the night before tripped when i opened the door.
Ours is 10 year old, done us well, laster longer than any other electrical item.
We are after a new one now, even second hand. They are alot more economical now, even though this one is soooo much better made than the cheap plastic ones in the shops. I am not going to bother mending it.
