I did accidentally leave a small handful of dishes in the dishwasher. The dishwasher was about half-full when I arrived, which made me think it was functional. The refrigerator was also fairly full when I arrived, so I certainly didn't leave any food in it—there really wasn't room. I personally put all sheets in a pile next to the washer as instructed. I'm guessing this false review is a direct result of my negative review of the house (mostly because the floors and dishes were all quite dirty when we arrived).
