Again. No Dishwasher?

Our brand new dishwasher that we bought in December is already having problems.I think another member here has the same one that I do.

It's a Whirlpool.It's now making this loud buzzing sound.Not sure if I should even continue to use it again.It fills and drains just fine.

We bought it at Home Depot.I don't trust them about the warranty on it.
We had paid extra to have it delivered and installed.They brought it out alright,but refused to install it.We did it ourselves.

Bummer Munky. I have a completely different dishwasher, but it sometimes buzzes. It's usually when something is keeping the thingee in the middle where the water squirts out, from moving properly or it gets stuck.

Munky, I hope you got reimbursed for the installation you paid for that they didn't do! Or at least a store credit. I'd be doing a boatload of complaining to Home Depot. I hope it's nothing seriously wrong with your dishwasher.

Our dishwasher has made some weird noises, too. The manufacturer's website has troubleshooting information. Maybe you could try that.

I did check that.No blockage of any kind.No hard water buildup.All jets were wide open and clean.
Checked it all over right down to the floater and filter.The noise seems to be coming from the door.I was running a full load the first time I heard it.
This dishwasher you really have to touch it to see if it's running it's that quiet.Second load was empty.Same problem.

We were given an apology and a store credit reimbursement.Thanks.I think?
I've just lost faith with them.The dishwasher hasn't been our first rodeo with them.I just hope they hold up with the warranty.

That's too bad about your dealings with Home Depot. We have had good luck with them - a good thing because we don't have any other real options here - our Sears store is not one of the best.

We have never had anything installed by HD. The appliances for the house we built in the Bahamas were all supplied from Home Depot, but they had to shipped over from Ft. Lauderdale by an exporter, and then installed by the local contractor. The range we have here was bought at Home Depot, but installed by a local plumber, since we had to have a new gas line run to the kitchen for it.

We just bought a Whirlpool from Home Depot as well. Paid for the delivery and install. They refused to install because they said we didn't have a shut off valve for the dishwasher. They said we would have to hire a plumber to come install a valve, then we could call them back. Screw that. We ended up doing the valve ourselves and installing ourselves. We told them and they gave us a credit for the install service.

It irritated me because the house was built in 2008 and apparently it is normal to run a direct water line to the dishwasher instead of installing a valve, I don't know. Had I known when we built the house I would have made the builder install one.

Under every sink, there should be two valves. One for the hot and one for the cold.
The line that goes to the dishwasher should come from the hot water line.
If your house was built in 2008, I can almost assure you, you had the ability to shut off the water supply to the dishwasher under the sink.
What am I missing here?
Doesn't everyone have two valves under their sinks? A hot and a cold.

I do have a hot and a cold shut off under the sink, and I read, during all of this, that the hot should shut off the dishwasher. It seems that Home Depot should've known that, but they still refused. I read their documentation on installation and it stated that the install would not be done if no shut off valve was present.

It has a shutoff unless someone piped from below the valve. The hot valve should cut water to the faucet and the dishwasher. And chances are extremely good thats exactly what you have.

Got to remember the delivery guys from Home Depot are just that. Delivery guys. They are not plumbers, electricians or appliance people. They drive the truck and unload the stuff.
If they could perform these tasks, most likely they would have jobs performing these tasks.
