This might be too late for SG, but I forgot to mention - another option is replacing it with a used, working dishwasher from Habitat For Humanity's ReStore stores. There are over 800 in the US. Check for locations here:

Dishwashers are going for $50 at the store near us. If one is looking for top-of-the-line or stainless, that's a lower probability. But generic white, black or cream are easy to find. Since the current one is 10+ years, a second-hand one likely won't look out-of-place.

Sometimes an inexpensive $50 one can get you by for a few years until you get the next vacancy. That might give you time to shop around for a better deal on a new, upgraded appliance. If the old one is still working, you have the option to Craigslist it or donate it back.
