Sooo…. turns out Nate CAN fix anything. Who knew?
We called the dishwasher repairman who said it would be over $300 to fix our dishwasher.
I started researching new dishwashers. ($ expensive)
While Nate took apart the dishwasher. (For free.)
Then we went to the Home Depot and bought a soldering iron. ($8.00)
Then we came home. Nate did some mumbo-jumbo, hocus-pocus with the soldering iron and VIOLA. Within 10 minutes the dishwasher was fixed!
