<We're having 10 people over for Christmas dinner.> That's a no go.

This maybe heresy, but have you considered using disposable dishes for Christmas, and not worrying about the dishwasher before Christmas?

(SIL used disposable plates and flatware for Thanksgiving. Noone made a comment. Unless you are willing and able to host future events, you don't harass the person hosting a holiday event.)
