Then came the hassle of installing the new one. With the built-up floor, the cabinet is just a bit short. One the third day, lonelydumptruck asked me to call a service since working on all this after a full work day was getting stressful.
Fortunately/unfortunately the scheduling gal asked all the right questions (did they build a floor around the old dishwasher? We see that a lot. Is the cabinet the right height?) so we decided to just put off fucking with it until we had all day Saturday.
lonelydumptruck accidentally got it into place first thing, whereupon we realized having the controls on top means this is not the dishwasher for us: they are under the counter.
So we'll be looking into how to return this bad boy and get one that will work in our kitchen.
