What is a spider?

As mentioned above, anything sharp, business end down. Handle down on anything else - more room in the basket that way. Good knives get washed by hand, same with anything with a wood handle such as some of my grilling utensils. Long utensils on the upper rack.

Interesting, I just went and looked at our brand new fancy dishwasher. There are small individual oval openings for each piece of cutlery, and slits for knives. No way to put the handles up.
I will say they all get very clean that way.

A little colander thing with a handle, used for frying stuff.

Whatever you do don't use regular dishwashing liquid!!!

I did that many years ago and a typhoon of suds poured out of the dishwasher and across my kitchen floor, it was like an episode of "I Love Lucy"!!!

I still have no idea how the suds got out of the machine.

Oh you brought back a horrible memory AB! I had surgery 20 years ago, and my dear husband thought he would "help" while I recuperated....
the suds went all the way out the kitchen, under the door out to the garage and into the street.

Well your wife would come home to a spotless floor unless you have a carpeted kitchen.

Larry, it doesn't matter which way you put in the silverware. If you have individual slots, you have to put them into the slots provided so they have to be business end up except for the knives which have to go tip down.

If you wash your hands before emptying the DW, it doesn't matter if you touch the business ends of the silverware.

Don't try to cram too much into the DW and try not to let food residue dry onto the dishes etc.
