The thread is on my phone and not the computer
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 9 months ago.

it must be because you are logged in on your phone or set the account up via your phone number. I am not sure how to get that changed other than calling customer service here.

it is okay but it is new and a replacement? I have the requirement it just keep blowing the breaker when the dishwasher is hooked up is there a reset or do they have problems. I have power up to the dishwasher
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 9 months ago.

There are no known problems. I am not sure what your previous model was but typically they all run off the same voltage so its a possibility the problem is in your breaker box and not your dishwasher since its new.

Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 9 months ago.

Working with a breaker box is not an easy thing so you may want your friend to come over and make sure the breakers are ok.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I'll figure it out it is not the breaker>>
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 9 months ago.

Ok so when you were installing the unit did you have to change wiring or did you take the dishwasher out of the package and install and plug up?
