F&P Dish Drawer install question . . .

dgsgAugust 25, 2012

" You need to get it installed by a professional. Incorrect installation can result in leaks."

Can anyone explain this statement that I have seen online and got from my salesperson?

It's a one piece sealed unit, I leveled it, put into and attached it to the cabinet and hooked it up.

It been running fine for 2+ months now, should I expect bad things to happen since it was self installed?

No. I installed mine ... uninstalled, moved it to a different house, installed again. Never any trouble with that.

Main things are follow the instructions for moisture-proofing the cabinetry cavity, route the drain hoses properly, level it, and anchor the unit correctly with the side and top tabs.

Fori is not pleased

Last time I replaced a DW I didn't bother with the installers since I always had to reinstall my previous DDs myself after so-called professionals mucked up the job.

YOU read better than the average installer and therefore you are better qualified!
