Installation on a remote iland in Panama

I bought a Fridgidaire UltraQuiet 111 for our Panama house off the grid. The plumber just put it in using the cold water supply under the kitchen sink, and it's using a lot of energy from our generator in heating Can we switch to the hot water supply instead (and use our gas demand water heater), or is this unit meant to only use cold water?

    Thanks, good questions Issy2. The manual was lost in transit, and we are using a portable 7.5kw kubota diesel genset. I think we'd save a lot o fuel if we uswed hot water rather than having to heat cold water first with the element.

    Have you read the user manual or instruction manual, because that will insist clearly weather if we can use hot inlet or not...? Also did u mean that your supplying power to it using a portable generator...?

    I would finalise by saying that u can use warm water atleast to supply in, because if the water hose used to take the water into the chamber doesnt support hot water then u will be in trouble again. But if u feel that the water hose is good enough then you can definitely send upto 70 degree celicus water into it.. So trying it once or twice will not damage ur appliance. Hoping a good rating from you..!!!

Frigidaire dishwasher leaks from motor

This is caused by the cheap bearing's in the motor. Even after I have replaced my $200.00 motor assembly it still leaks. put a small flat dish under it as the leak should be small and when the dishwasher starts making a loud noise the bearings are gone and I do not recommend replacing motor as it is half the price of washer itself. I myself will never buy a fridgidaire again. However if you do replace the motor assembly it is very easy and there is a video on youtube showing you how. good luck

Is it legal to install a plumbing p trap behind a dishwasher in an exposed wall?

What are you doing? P traps stop sewer gas from coming into the house --only if there is water in them. If you are talking about putting your drain line into the P trap line, you could. You need to have a plumber see your installation to be sure.

Gritty/sandy feeling on dishes from dishwasher

You could only check the basics. Since the dishes are clean, it means they went through the wash cycle. It also means that that the holes on the washer arm are not blocked. If they were salty and dirty the wash arms would be something to check. And since they came out feeling like salt is on them its possible they didn't rinse and its also possible the dirty water didn't drain.Were your drain and fill hoses checked or did the techs just check the dish washing machine itself? Its also possible the water for rinse is not hot enough. Before the rinse cycle comes around try running the hot water at your kitchen faucet. Any other issues may be within the cycling of the machine.

If it smells like sulfur? You may need to add a filtration system to your house, Or get a plumber to check the anoid rod in the water heater. It may need replacing.

Cant get installation manual

A dishwasher is a simple install. You don't need a manual. First make it fit under the counter or where you want it. Pull it back out.
There are three wires to connect to the house supply line. find those wires. You have to hook up to 110 volts at a wall outlet or tie it to a 110 volt junction supply box. If you can't do that then you need an electrician because that's what the intructions would say. Then you have to supply water. The instructions don't tell you how to be a plumber. You have to figger it out and find where to hook up the washer to your plumbing. There are water tap kits available for this at all hardware stores, but you will have to learn how to be the plumber or call one.

Hi shanandpop

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Your Bosch dishwasher is 6 months old and is starting to leave food on items in the top drawer. It also sometimes leaves a grainy residual in the cups and glasses. You have put through a dishwasher cleaning solution, but find it isn't doing anything to resolve the problem?

You're still under warranty. The best advice is to use it. If it is not fixed the first time out, demand a new one from where you bought it. Sometimes they drag this out till the warranty runs out, then where will we be.
