Since he has a mixer named, "Lucille" I figured Kathleen had a dishwasher named, "Frank."

What Alix said!
Commercially you are supposed to wash your dishes basically by hand (rinse all food off in a sink full of water or by heavy spray and scrub where necessary) then put in the commercial dishwasher for a final clean but mostly sanitizing. Putting cutlery in baskets "business side up" ensures that they are completely clean.

I always do end up - I think they come out better that way. Knives I generally do toward the back of the rack so I know the pointy end is up - very few people other than me empty my dishwasher. Large knives go in the rack on top - I have knife holders, but don't use them because I won't be able to put the glasses in.

I must be the odd person here, I usually read the appliance manual and do what they suggest.

I don't put sharp knives in the dishwasher, only dinner knives.
