Customer Question
I installed my brand...

I installed my brand new Kitchen Aid dishwasher myself. I have a lot of experience doing this type of simple electrical and plumbing project. However, it will not work. If I use, rinse only, it will fill with a little water then heat it a little then drain. That's all. I really hate this thing.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I bought it just before Christmas of 2017. It appears to be a 2016 model, however. The model number is *****

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. I live 45 minutes from town and the store wouldn't install it for me. I have already hooked it up, but it won't work right.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I can't think of anything, other than maybe that the water is supplied by a pump with a 30-50 switch. But that is higher than the 20 psi recommended as a minimum pressure.
