What brand is the dw? Bosch by any chance? 

You've done a lot of testing and short of installing a filter perhaps using a WS469 switch might solve your issue.  The WS469 has an internal relay instead of a triac for dimming. There's always some current running through the WS467 and I'm thinking that some waveform generated by the dw is triggering the triac to turn on. 

An XPF filter could be wired under the dw or at the circuit breaker or use an XPNR if space is a problem.

Another thing to try that won't involve $ is to just move the dw breaker to the other 'phase' in the panel and see if that helps.  Only do that if you're comfortable working in the panel! Safety First!

Of course, if you have a signal analyzer, you could sit and watch it.  B:(

Just to be doubly sure that it's the dw, can you flip its breaker for 24 hours and observe?

As part of my investigation, I kept track of the light on days where the DW was not activated.   Light never turned on by itself..  I can certainly flip the breaker, but I've never seen the light on when the DW is off.

Start the DW, and light is on in the first 20 minutes of the cycle.

brobin,
You have my interest! Can you say more about the G1G2, wrt the radio?  What pushes me one way or the other?  Thanks.

Just to be clear the radio is for Zigbee devices like door locks, Lightify bulbs and many others.

X10 & Insteon are supported through either a 2412U or 2413U PLM. They also have their own PLM with Zigbee built in if you go with the G1 and want to add Zigbee. The P2 and G2 don't need that as they have the internal Zigbee radio. (You can also use a 2412S or 2413S with a serial to USB adapter.)  The difference between the 2412 and 2413 is that the 2413 supports Insteon mesh using PLC and RF to support the dual band Insteon devices.  For X10 it's just PLC either way.

From the time you open the box to the time you're controlling devices is less than 10 minutes - it's easier than operating our washing machine!

Depending on what you want to do - and what you're willing to spend - here's a comparison:

Model   Ethernet   WiFi   CPU Cores   Zigbee Onboard
       P2                   Yes                  No                    1                            Yes
       G1                   Yes                 Yes                    2                             No
       G2                   Yes                 Yes                    4                            Yes

AFAIK, all three run the same app and share the same features and I haven't noticed any difference in speed between the P2 and G2 but I'm only using it as an Alexa/X10 bridge and a few test schedules.  I have both units running in the same app as seperate locations.
The units can see and respond to X10 commands from other devices but I don't think it supports X10 security system codes - I have no way to test that.

FYI, I have no financial interest or incentive in recommending the product. I'm just happy to have found it and see it as a good fit for many of us.  I'm happy to answer questions about my experience with it.

All,
Thanks for your input and comments.

Light and dishwasher on different circuits, same phase.

I do have a filter, but the DW is hard-wired.

As for TOD, we usually set the cycle delay for a few hours, then head to bed.  Today, we ran it in the morning so we could watch the light.  So, time of day does not seem to matter.

 I have posted pictures of a Macro I hope I have created correctly. If you see any problems with this Macro I'm hoping for some input on editing possibilities so as to make this macro run correctly.

Do you have an X10 filter you're using elsewhere that you could test with?
The dishwasher, if not hardwired, is usually plugged in under the sink.
Does time of day make any difference?
