The dishwasher here at Pine Gulch finally gave up the ghost last week. After a mere five years on the job, it developed a leak in the motor/pump assembly. The repairman who came out to take a look at it said he could fix it, but that it would cost nearly as much as a new machine. So we decided to get a new dishwasher. I picked it up from Lowes last Friday and installed it Sunday. Not only does the new machine have more buttons and blinkenlights, but it’s so quiet we can barely tell it’s running.
