What did my dishwasher do?

I opened my dishwasher yesterday while it was off (not running and nothing in it), and there was a visible flash (about the size of a baseball?) near the front side by the door, and a sharp bang that seemed like it was a mini-ignition of some sort. No debris was left, and no smell lingered. I tried starting the dishwasher, and it seems to be fine.

I'm feeling a little bit worried, as I'm not sure if it's indicative of something serious. Does anyone know what might have caused it?
We haven't actually started used the dishwasher ourselves yet, as it's one that we inherited in a recent home purchase.
