Installing a Dishwasher

Recently, I decided it was time to get a new dishwasher. I headed down to the sears kitchen remodel service store and was overwhelmed with the options. Nonetheless I ended up picking one out and bringing back home. I got all my tools around and was ready for the install. First, I had a hard time taking the old dishwasher out. However, after I ruined part of the trim on my counter top, i was able to remove it.

After the old dishwasher was removed, it was time to put the new one in. I checked out my plumbing parts and realized quickly that I was missing an adapter. I got back into my car and headed down to the local hardware store where I purchased the adapter. I then proceeded to struggle with the installation for hours. I finally felt like I had it hooked up right and went to test the unit. It operated very loudly. At that point I called an acquaintance who is a plumber.

Thank god he came over. I had the unit installed correctly but it was out of level. We quickly leveled the unit and had it working. Its amazing how one little thing can make a unit work improperly. I’m quite a handyman myself, but there is nothing like having a professional to help do the work.
