A BIG LESSON in life - and in attempted home repairs - is knowing when to admit defeat. Raising the white flag and calling in the professional repairman may be a blow to the ego, but, generally speaking, it is a boon to the malfunctioning machine. That is what I told myself recently after battling a dishwasher afflicted with wash quality problems. That meant nasty grit was stuck on supposedly "clean" glasses. A dishwasher is one of the marvels of modern life. You load dirty dishes, push buttons and soon the machine has straightened out your mess.

Walter Gilliam, who rose from a being a sandwich maker and dishwasher to become a chef at the old Haussner's Restaurant in a career than spanned more than 50 years, died Monday of complications from a stroke at his East Baltimore home. He was 91. "Walter was a splendid rock through all the years. He was someone to lean on, and he was always there when you needed him," said Francie George, the daughter of William Henry Haussner, a German immigrant and master chef who opened the venerable restaurant in 1926 at Eastern Avenue and Clinton Street, and Frances Wilke Haussner.

Right now, my dishwasher is on lockdown. The dishwasher door opens -- I can load it or unload it, so it's technically unlocked. But the controls are locked. And so the fact that its door opens is really unimportant at this point, unless I just want to open it up periodically to check on the status of the dirty dishes. I seem to be doing a lot of that. I liken it to turning off your computer and unplugging your modem when you have an Internet connection issue; I'm hoping that repeatedly opening and closing my dishwasher door is going to cause the "controls locked" button to reset.

For decades, counter tops in bathrooms were, at most, 30 inches in height, while kitchen counters were 6 inches taller. Does that make sense? Of course not, but those dimensions nevertheless remain the American standard.Slowly, finally, the situation is changing. Many newly built homes feature 36-inch counter-tops in master bedroom-bath combinations. Other traditional and equally illogical placements are beginning to be rethought as well.Jim Krengel, design director for Maytag's Kitchen Idea Center, offers some interesting tips for how to save time and improve efficiency in the kitchen.

Q: I need a new super-quiet and efficient dishwasher. My old one sounds like a jet preparing for takeoff. Are there new types of quiet dishwashers and what efficiency features should I consider?A: There are some new super-quiet dishwashers designed with many soundproofing features. One design is also so energy-efficient that it costs less than $45 per year to operate with an electric water heater. These quiet models also use three-level sprays for excellent cleaning.Super-quiet dishwashers are generally energy-efficient for several reasons.

Under pressure for a series of security breaches -- including the rape of a staff member -- the company operating two Maryland juvenile jails has responded by firing a $7-an-hour dishwasher who was assigned guard duty because of a staff shortage.The dishwasher, Dwane Williams, 38, and others say he was fired to divert attention to staff shortages that have forced numerous employees at the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School to work double shifts and have left some shifts uncovered.Williams said that he had not been disciplined since he began work there almost a year ago and that his supervisor told him as she fired him that he had been an "outstanding" employee.

My 20s were so lacking in creature comforts, I could have been in a Dickens novel. What a bedraggled waif I was, living in a grimy New York City apartment with no dishwasher, no air conditioner and no on-site laundry facilities. Like most Manhattanites, I didn't have a car, nor did I have a television set, though that was mostly because I was incredibly pretentious and wanted to convey the (false) notion that I was the kind of person who spent all evening - often, alas, at the laundromat - reading Ibsen plays.

On Monday morning, my alarm rang at 5:40 and I pushed the snooze button twice, just like the day before. I got out of bed at 6 and went downstairs to make coffee, just like the day before. I let the dog out, just like the day before. And I opened the dishwasher to unload the dishes, just like the day before. But on this day, I discovered it had been emptied by someone else. Oh joy! Rapture! Oh unexpected bliss! During these decidedly less-than-happy-go-lucky economic times, we ought to be on the lookout for silly little happy spots in our lives and celebrate them.

Say you're driving in downtown Baltimore on business, when the dishwasher in your house in Timonium goes on the fritz. The machine does a quick diagnostic check on itself, locates the problem and e-mails a repair center to request service - after consulting an online calendar where your appointments for the next week are posted. Seconds later, your laptop beeps. You prudently pull over to the curb to find a waiting e-mail that tells you that help is on the way and displays your dishwasher's warranty information on the screen and, for good measure, flashes ads for appliance sales at area department stores.

Last month, Colgate-Palmolive began marketing several phosphate-free dishwashing detergents under the name eco+. It's not hard to understand the new product's appeal. Many states, including Maryland, have required that dishwashing detergent be rid of the phosphates that are threatening to destroy aquatic life. So why did the General Assembly last month approve legislation postponing Maryland's phosphate ban for six months from January to July 2010? Environmental groups say it was to benefit one company, Proctor & Gamble, which hasn't yet released its own version of a phosphate-free product.

Every few weeks, I break the coffee carafe. Not intentionally, though I have to admit it might be a lot more entertaining that way. I could stage every-third-Wednesday carafe-bashings in my kitchen. You could come and watch. And maybe help clean up. A few of the early breaks were understandable, or at least there appeared to be a logical explanation for the glass cracking. First, there was the time I was nearing the end of a lengthy, dismal housecleaning day. Exasperated with the whole kitchen mess, I loaded the carafe into the dishwasher, right next to the cast iron cook-top burner grates, which are not particularly dishwasher safe, either.

The former manager of a popular Eastport restaurant was acquitted this week of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old dishwasher. Edward J. Farrell, 45, of Annapolis had faced assault and sex offense charges in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court after the dishwasher was found by police in June lying in a pool of his own blood next to the Boatyard Bar and Grill. The Spanish-speaking man was extremely drunk when he was found and had been sexually assaulted, according to police. T. Joseph Touhey, Farrell's lawyer, argued that the 18-year-old could have accidentially injured himself.
