Question about Dishwashers
We need to replace an old leaky undercounter dishwasher, ut the water supply hose is plastic. Will this become a problem when we purchase a new one and try to install it ourselves?
Hopefully there's enough slack in your water supply hose for you to just pull out the machine and unscrew the hose. Be sure to turn off the water before you unscrew it. You might be able to unscrew the bottom plates to access the supply connection from the front. Your new machine will probably have a 3/8" female connection. I'd suggest having a 3/8" street elbow and an adapter for 3/8" male to whatever your plastic pipe. The other thing to watch for is whether your machine is hardwired for electricity or has a cord and plug. You can use your old cord and plug on the new machine, if the new one doesn't have one.
