Default Dishwashers...

...are they relatively easy to install?

Can't be much more than an in/out hose and a plug, right?

it's a lot more complex than that - you need to arrange for the visa, employment contract, spare room, bedding etc.

Don't you have a "woman who does" dropping in a few days a week? Why have both?

Very good.

My Mrs? She does a lot of dishwashing, I do a fair bit (not as much).

I don't have a maid, no. I occasionally get one in and still need to ring the firm Patsy gave me to get one to come in every other week....I just can't be bothered.

So...I am going to buy a dishwasher, may as well get one off Dubizzle and before googling how to install etc etc etc, just wanted a rough idea of how easy / hard it is?

Have you ever installed a washing machine? Its very similar, water connectors in, flexi drain out, plug for electrics.

Its a sad day when a "man" has to ask these kind of questions. Whatever happened to going in blind and making it work even if it takes you all day?

Carrefour 'fitted' my washing machine. In actual fact, they turned up, made a mess, tried to fit it, didn't, demanded I signed, aruged when I wouldn't, then just ****ed off leaving water, dirt and boxes everywhere. I'm determined not to use those ****tards again.

You live alone most of the time--how much washing-up do you generate? You do realise you have to rinse them first, load, put in the detergent, unload? Any you can't put your silverware or crystal glassware in there...

Same shit, different toilet I expect. Just been informed by the mrs that I'm not allowed to buy one off Dubizzle because that's "urgh". Oh well.

Live alone.. hmm

I cook proper meals every night, so washing up gets generated. If you don't do it one night then there is a pile the next.

Dishwashe was my job at Mums, along with the bins. I don't mind loading and unloading. There is never any real need to rinse them first - only if there is still loads of crap on them.

I don't think we have ever used the dishwasher - even in the UK. Pointless device.

Carrefour fitted ours too. Several months later Mrs DB got a helluva jolt from the metal door. After investigating I found that the live wire wasn't tightened and the resulting heat had slowly burned through the terminal block, plug and facia before welding itself to the earth wire. The whole machine was then live and waiting for a suitable victim.....absolute idiots and would never trust them again.

No long term harm tho....I bought her some fairy liquid!
