My son put an entire bottle of dishwashing liquid soap in the dishwasher. First, of course, I sopped up as much bubbles from the floor and inside the dishwasher as I could. I then poured cold water into the dishwasher and let the dishwasher run it's drain cycle for about 10 times. Since I didn't have any oil, I used sticks of butter. I put 2 sticks of butter in the dishwasher (it still had plenty of soap and bubbles in it), and allowed it to run it's usual cycle. The bubbles dissapeared completly. After that, I added vinegar and allowed the dishwasher to run another cycle. Problem solved, but not without headache. Thnx all for your posts and suggestions, I now know what to do if this happens again!

Wow.   Thanks a million.  The cooking oil trick really worked.    I love the internet.  Got a problem.  Find a solution.  BRAVO.

I put too much non-HE detergent in my front-load clothes washer (Maytag Neptune).   The excessive suds fools something in the machine and it won't complete the cycle.   I didn't want to put cooking oil in the machine, so I mixed vinegar and water and that killed all the suds.  

It's running again now. hopefully that is the end of it.   I don't want another repair bill.
