did i just destroy my dishwasher?

(completely not about food... please remove if inappropriate)

I have a heavy plastic serving spoon that slipped through the cracks in the dishwasher and burned almost all the way through the handle...

my entire apartment smells like burnt plastic (can't be healthy or safe!). assuming that the dishwasher still works, is it still safe to use if there are remnants of plasic on the bottom?
