Could it be me?...no........New GE dishwasher
Posted 11 May 2012 - 07:18 PM
1.) Bought brand new GE GLD5768V00SS dishwasher this past Monday.
2.) This is replacing a 9 year old Fridgedr, almost identical machine with same hookup ports on ALL hoses.
3.) Took old one out.
4.) Hooked up new one.
5.) Pushed "go for green"
6.) All seemed to be just fine.
7.) Left room to lazily stroll around something, can't remember now but I know it took a couple hours. Must have been pretty interesting though.
8.) Walked back in the kitchen and "Holy Hell ontop of Mt. Saint Helens!!!"
9.) Water EVERYWHERE. "Honey get the roundabout ready!"
10.) Since washer was not yet pushed back into install area (as I wanted to make sure I would not need our roundabout) I opened the door. There was obviously too much water in holding area. So, I hit start again. Heard the machine run. I skipped to the "drain" part of the cycle. Heard water draining into our garbage disposal side of sink. Got the remaining 65 towles left in our house for clean up (yes, just happened to throw away our old shop vac because of the 'ol "Ah, we never use this peice of crap") Damn!! Stores are closed now!!
11.) All sounded fine while cleaning up. Checked connections for possible leaks, nope. Noted that I heard and saw (by feel) the water draining in drain line...check!
12.) About an hour later, pushed unit under counter and mouted with mounting brackets. Made sure unit was level. And yes, used level not my screwy eyes... Come on now, don't even try that one folks.
13.) Loaded dishwasher.
14. Hit the "go for green".
15.) Stood in wheezing haze for what seemd to be 19 days...just waiting....come on you bast$rd, leak on me, I dare you........
16.) All good.
17.) Started putting away tools, hauling the 65 towles outside to dry.
18.) Walked back into house and "HOLY MOTHER OF CORPIS CHRISTY!!!!!!"
19.) H2O leaking like the Hoover from the bottom sides of the door.
20.) Quickly checked fitting underneath while parting the waterfall in front of me (they were the only damn things not leaking).
21.) Sat there soaked and crying.
22.) Went to fridge.
23.) "SON OF A BISQUIT PICNIC ON A WEDNESDAY NIGHT! I'm outta beer and....the stores are closed!"
24.) That was 2 days ago. I am finally my normal human color.
~While this is meant to be a somewhat humorous take on my current situation, it really has caused me to up my BP medication. I am aware of draining and leakage problems because of bad seals, blocked drain lines, and disposal cap's. This one has me scratch'n my head. Nothing has changed from when I pulled the old unit out to putting the new in. Same hook up placements and leveling tactics. We can't get warranty out till Monday because place we bought from (HD) says that after 48 hours in your home, you HAVE to deal with factory. I told her that "after 48 hours my sanity, my grace, and my world will be gone and do YOU want that unfavorable responsibility on your hands for the rest of your adult life?. I mean, do you have any idea in your selfish isolated world who I am? Huh? ....miss?, miss? miss! ....are you there? DAMN!!!!"
I could not have been this lucky to actually have a brand new $500 peice of crap, could I?
