it's not phantosmia
The last few times I ran my dishwasher I smelled something burning. Which is never a good sign, especially if it's imaginary. Yes, that is a migraine symptom to have olfactory hallucinations. I don't typically have that, so I investigated further.
Recently I had cleaned out my dishwasher filter and apparently not snapped it firmly back into place. That resulted in plastic parts sliding onto the heating element and melting. Nice.
I attempted to correct the alignment and tested it again. Nope.
Rather than berate myself for fucking up my dishwasher, I researched how to fix it properly. I think I did finally, but I'll test it again a few more times to make sure.
As much as I'm mad at myself for damaging part of my dishwasher, I'm ecstatic that it's not me who is (further) damaged.
