Who's to say that Sensei doesn't dry a few clothes in the dishwasher. That top rack is wonderful for holding and airing out a load of socks. Then again, a fallen sock and a bit of lint on the heating element can make for a spectacular dishwasher fire. Recall definitely in order.

ps Now if he puts his dishes in the dryer, we'd better check on him.

The Samurai, being all into personal liberty, is never one to judge how people use their appliances, least of all our esteemed Sensei!

Those appliances are going to run afoul of the Media Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission.

Filming such acts of "copulation" violate "decency" rules.

I'm sure that the DOE wants to get involved as well---mandating that appliance "children" to be genetically altered for compliance with FEDERAL REGULATIONS.

Mirroring the Nuremberg Laws of 1935---"non-tiered" appliances are verbotten from having "offspring" with "tiered" appliances.
Such blatant and overt discrimination is par-for-the-course at the DOE.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

i love the way Viking passes the buck..." the wireing harness vendor substituted an out of spec terminal without our knowledge or authorization" (this info is not on the sheet reg posted...was on the the email auth serv. recieved last week)

so...its not really our fault, but we're going to fix anyway...but its not OUR fault. typical

Are these the Viking dishwashers made by Asko or are they Viking's own dishwashers?
