Glad to hear you got it in. Good work.

And its nice the way people graciously offered info on how to install it.

I just spent 40 minutes washing dishes by hand...wonder what I could have been doing if I had a dishwasher? Playing guitar, smoking a pipe, eating and making more dishes.

Just throwing it out there but there is a cookbook out there about cooking in your dishwasher. No joke...people cook salmon in their dishwasher. Wrapped in foil...lemon and butter...then put in sealed ziploc bag. Run it through a cycle and voila.

Do they use a Samsung dishwasher?

I've cooked stuff in foil under the hood of my vehicle on the engine, but not in a dishwasher. Not on purpose anyway....

Downloaded the manual for the unit after a very pleasant conversation with a CS rep from KitchenAid. She was very helpful.

Also just ordered the 2 brackets that will hold the top of the unit to the underside of my cabinet. The brackets that came with the unit had been broken off during the removal.

All to say that the replacement brackets will not require removal of the unit. The anchor points on the dishwasher are easily accessed. All I'll have to do is locate and drill a couple small holes for the anchor points in the cabinet, which I can easily do without moving the appliance.

cheers



Cheers,

RR

That sounds familiar Wiz! I used to have an old Comma Camper van in the early 90s. I used to travel round the UK in it exploring new mountain bike routes; mountain biking was in its infancy here in the UK at the time. As the access to the engine was under a hatch between the driver and passenger seats in the cab, we used to wrap Cornish pasties in tin foil and sit them on the manifold. Twenty or so minutes driving would normally be enough for a piping hot dinner whilst driving. That hatch was useful when it came to retarding the timing a bit too.

What's that dripping sound I hear?



I once had a rat (yes, a RAT!) chew through the water line of my DW and I woke up to water ALL over. Floor swelled up (oak parquet). Took weeks to dry it out, but it settled down flat again. God, I hate rats.

Well, colour me pleased as punch! Just ran the first cycle through the unit and it performed flawlessly. No leaks, way more quiet than the old one, got the dishes sparkling clean. What more could one want? Looks like it was worth all the hassle, and I did it myself!

cheers


Cheers,

RR

Well TBH I did have one post-installation issue but it's fully sorted out now. Clear sailing from here!
