I finally convinced my bride that she needed to use the dishdrawer before our year warranty is up. She tried it last night and it showed a fault and it didn't seem like there was any water going to it. I'm not much of a plumber and looked at the plumbing diagram and I looked and still couldn't find a water supply line to it. We're taking it in on Tuesday for the final warranty work and don't want to seem like an idiot when I try and explain to the dealership that we aren't getting water to it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Bruce

I assume the dishwasher is next to your sink. The water and drain supply lines should be connected under the sink and extend to the dishwasher. You will only have the cold water line run to the dishwasher.

By the way, she will love that dishwasher once she uses it. It is very quiet, and fast.

Rex, does the fisher paykel heat the water? I thought we needed to have the propane or electric water heater on for it to operate properly.

Thanks
Jim

Norton, do you have the fault code explanations? I assume you have city water connected and or the water pump on?

We have used our F&P Dishdrawer while on shore power, generator and driving on inverter using the water pump. Works great. I would wonder if there is an inline valve in the waterline from the sink to the dishdrawer.

Once you get it sorted out, I think you will love it. Uses much less water than doing dishes by hand and does a better job.

I just went outside and looked to see where the valve is on my 36RD. If you open the kitchen slide on the driver's side and push in on the hinged panel under the sink you will see three lines coming out of the black steel arm connected to the slide. There is a black power cord, a white corregated drain hose and a translucent water supply line. If you follow that supply line with your hand you should find a cutoff valve next to the outside wall under the sink. The valve handle should be lined up with the hose when it's ON, perpendicular to the hose when it's OFF. This line supplies hot water to the dishwasher (not cold).

Thanks for the tip on the shutoff valve. I found it and turned it to the right direction and (wahlah) we had water. The dishdrawer worked almost to perfection. The only problem is that it didn't drain the water out. I checked for a kink and couldn't find one so i took the innards out and checked the filter and it was clean so I did the bailing trick with a small tupperware bowl. I guess I'll let the dealership figure out the problem.
Again, thanks for the information.

But, it is quiet.
