It's on; the dryer has made a treaty with the washer who seems to only be getting just warmed up with their defense system. The first move was causing the illusion that there was not enough detergent; the washer, and therefore through the treaty the dryer, has many allies!
However, in this minor skirmish, I have
prevailed; I saw through the illusion just in time and was able to cause
the detergent's demise.
Awaiting the next attempt.
