Does a dishwasher drain water if it's not turned on?
Anyways, I tell my mom that the dishwasher is clogged and she tells me that it only gets "clogged"/doesn't drain water if it's not turned on. So if it's off, water will not go down the drain.
Is this true? And before any of you suggest I just turn on the dishwasher to test out her hypothesis... Neither of us know how to turn it on and we're both pretty sure it's just broken.
