    Rust! Lots of it, on every conceivable service and in every conceivable nook and cranny.

    Leaving the parts needing serious work, ideally blasting, thus completely negating the objective of the exercise.

    I know... I am that idiot...

    If the right soap is used rust is not an issue. I have a jet wash cabanet made for this along with the right soap

    The right soap [Simple Green works] plus avoid the heated drying cycle in the dishwasher. Get it out as soon as the washing is done and dry it with an air gun.

    It's the heat and humidity during the drying cycle that causes the rust.
