I spent the majority of this past weekend attempting to install a new dishwasher. It was like wrestling a manatee in olive oil. Four trips to Home Depot later, much talk of telflon tape, ferrule rings, wire caps, pipe cutters and several curse words later, I believe it is in and working. We’ll see if a gush of water bursts through the wall this evening. It was an experience, but not a way I’d like to spend another weekend. Especially when spring is in the air around here.
Special note: The next time a salesman who is about to sell you something says “oh yeah, it’s so easy. Just three wires and this kit and in 20 minutes you’ll be up and running” — just laugh and very carefully register that as remember to call someone to install this.
