Yeah - I've actually been there and done that with a 110 Volt Makita unit that some idiot brought into Australia and changed the plug from USA standard (110V 60Hz) to Australian (240V 50Hz) and then claimed warranty. He wanted the machine re-worked to run on Australian voltages at our cost --- and we did not even sell the B***ARD the unit! He even mutilated the unit ID plate where it said voltage and current!
Can I send you a photo of some part of the dishwasher that will let you know what you are dealing with?
Can we terminate this discussion (with payment) and continue it by email? You need to be paid for your time. F&P will not talk to me as I no longer have a registered business.

I have service, parts, disks for Makita, Senco, Bosch (hand tools), Dremel, Hitachi, AEG, Milwaukee, Ryobi (hand tools not garden), Paslode and Metabo, all of which I used to service and I "liberated" the disks when they were superseded. These are all early 2000's and 240 Volts (except the battery units of course).
Following the fun and games with the Simpson in the 1970's I found that it was actually a Bosch 220 Volt unit (European --- 110 Volt 2 phase @ 180 degrees plus earth=neutral) which they had re-wired to suit Australia 240 Volts by leaving a floating buss at a nominal 120 V AC above earth. No wonder they "discontinued support".
If you can actually identify the F&P unit I would be grateful; VERY GRATEFUL (I.E. $). We will be out of Canberra for a couple of weeks from about 60 hours from now so if you can come back to me ASAP with the details of what you need for the ID of the unit, I will get back to you and then you can look at your leisure without pressure from me. I can get the unit up on a workbench and send you hi res photos of what you need.

Time now 23:11 local (11:11 PM) so I am off to bed.
