Wow, from your description you have had a major leak!!
I would cal a contractor imediately to look at the damage.
If you have bulging wood that means that there has been a leak for some time and the damage may be extensive. I wouldn't worry as much about the dishwasher, a mouse might have eaten through the drain hose. Just take it outside, hook it up then run it. You should see it leaking!
