I believe that's just the decombustulator cap. That's the thing they affix in dishwashers to prevent them from exploding into a fireball when the "start" button is pushed.

I can't believe I actually googled decombustulator cap.

Don't tell anyone you have it. Didn't you ever see Enemy of the State?

Bosch. It's stainless steel so I looked inside but it doesn't appear to be part of anything.

On the back is a tiny little circle numbered 1-12 with an arrow pointing to the six.

That tells you what the winning lottery numbers will be. Now you just have to figure out which lottery.

Re: What is this?

The thing in the OP is a very important part of your dishwasher that has unfortunately broken off.

The blue and yellow thing might be a token board for ABA or speech therapy.

Token board? (Googles) My god, she might have cracked it! Though none on google look like that, most seem to use stickers.

As for the dishwasher thing, it looks like a cap or clip of some kind. Doesn't appear to be broken; you might want to examine the inside of your dishwasher to see if there's anywhere it could go.

Yeah, it might not be, but it could certainly be used as one. The few times I've done that type of therapy, I made my own. But it does kind of look like a generic speech, aba or even occupational therapy material to me. Or part of a game.

It's a device for juicing four tiny oranges at once.

I looked everywhere inside the dishwasher. I really don't see where it could have come from. I did a google image search and it said it could possibly be an auto part, but that makes zero sense.

Re: What is this?

Okay, real answer. I'm in the parts supply business. Look for the model # on your dishwasher. Google it. Go to Google images. You'll likely see a thorough parts breakdown.

Also, could you make the image a little smaller?

Is that image better?

The entire dishwasher is stainless steel and I looked everywhere but I will look for model number and try that

Re: What is this?

Google "Bosch dishwasher parts" and go to "images". You'll see what I'm talking about. But you'll need the model # to find the right diagram.

I wouldn't be surprised if the spec tag is on the inside, around the rim of the door. I doubt they'd put it somewhere where you can't get to it.

We need to take this shit to the proper thread. Has that fucking thing been solved now? Are we close to it? What is the answer to it all?
