Once a day. On rare occasions twice. if we are out all day, we may be able to get by with a top rack only. Funny you should ask this. I told someone that we run the dishwasher every night, empty it first thing in the morning so we can load it as we go to avoid the sinkfull of dirty dishes. They responded with surprise that we have a load every day. But I cook three hot meals a day, with at least three food groups for each meal.

Once a day (about 1 am) on weekdays and 1-2 per day on weekends.

Every other day and it wouldn't be that often but the cats' dishes take up a lot of space (they get clean dishes everytime they get wet food, which is morning and night). I use the timer setting to run it in the wee hours of the night, tho. Probably 90% of the time it runs then, but in the interests of full disclosure, I don't sweat it too much if I need to run it mid-day. I just try not to.

Same here. We usually do not run it on Fridays as we don't have the normal kids lunch stuff (they usually buy Fridays) and we have pizza/movie night. Both of which results in fewer dishes.

That's how we do it.
