Question about Equator Dishwashers

1 Answer

Converting built-in dishwasher to portable.

My father bought my mother a top of the line dishwasher that she refuses to even let him install. So, I am getting it for my Christmas gift. Problem, we live in an apartment and can't put a built-in washer. So, my Husband, a mechanic, and my father, a carpenter are converting it. My father needs me to find an attachment that goes on the faucet with two "outlets". Need help finding it. Thanks

Most hardware stores would have that item... or even a plumbing store if you live near one.... just explain to them what it is you need.

Portable to built-in dishwasher


I've not heard of one, but you might consider trading with someone on "Craig's List" or in a thrifty nickel shopper in your area, or if you have a handy man, have them remove the sheet metal cover and the top and wheels and perhaprs it can be used as a built-in.
I have fixed a few free standing models, and the are the same as a built it as far as the hook-ups are concerned, you'd just have to go to a hardware stroe and buy the hoses and pipes and stuff to connect it.

Glasses in top rack do not come clean


Hello loria... When the top rack no longer cleans like it should check the flexible hose in the rear of that tray for holes. It may even be disconnected, or not lining up with the water supply connection in the rear of the dishwasher.

Check these things, repair or replace as necessary and you will have clean glassware once again. Joe

587 Doesn't work well


AS ABOVE SUGESTION ...PROBUBLY NOT GETTING ENOUGH WATER. NOT LIKELY THE FAULT OF THE DISHWASHER PROBUBLY SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER PLUGED THE INLET SCREEN OF THE FILL VALVE. MANY TIMES THE MOVING OF A FLEXIBLE PLUMBING LINE BRAKES LOOSE ANY SEDIMENT AND DEPOSIT DURING THE INSTALATION OF A NEW DISHWASHER WHICH IS WHY MOST ADVISE REPACING THIS SMALL FLEXIBLE LINE WHEN INSTALLING A NEW DISHWASHER. YOU WILL HAVE TO DIS ASSEMBLE VALVE TO CLEAN SCREEN ...IF YOU BOUGHT THE PROTECTION AGREEMENT OR HAD SEARS INSTALL IT THEY SHOULD COVER A SERVICE CALL TO CLEAN THE VALVE.

Bosch NOT completing cycle NOR draining water


This may or may not be the issue: I have friends that bought a new dishwasher - I'm not certain, but I think it was a Bosch. They did have similar draining issues.

With their dishwasher, the installer did not follow directions properly. Yes, he'd "installed a million dishwashers", but was too self-confident to check the directions for something particular to this machine. There was something about the way one of the drain or supply hoses was supposed to loop around that was unique to installing this brand, and that ended up being the problem.

Make sure that your machine was installed properly in this regard, even if your installer says they know what they were doing. Call Bosch's customer service dept. if you have further questions.
