Well, the repairman from the store where we bought our dishwasher came out to look at it today. I think he thought I was an idiot.
Because there’s ABSOLUTELY NO SIGN OF A LEAK!
This is very frustrating because last week when the contractor came out to look at our dishwasher, it was leaking slowly from under the door. However, since that cycle was run last week, there has been no leaks. NONE!
The repairman did say that we needed a new gasket around the door, but I don’t think the bad gasket would be the reason for the leak.
As it looks right now, I have no right to ask GE to pay for my floor. It wouldn’t be right.
What the heck do I do now?
My theory is that enough water backed up into the dishwasher from the disposal to cause the leak. However, this does not explain the drip drip that the contractor found last week when he was checking it out. I saw it with my own two eyes!
I don’t know what to do. I don’t really want to replace $1,600 worth of laminate with new laminate, only to have this problem again. I’m leaning towards putting tile in the living and dining room. My wife doesn’t like the idea as she likes the look of the laminate. I’m thinking the tile all through the entry, living room, dining room, kitchen, family room, and utility room would be nice. She could put a big run under the dining room table to dress up the room if she desired.
The best thing about tile: I wouldn’t have to install it!
Anyway, if any of you are dishwasher or plumbing experts, I’d like to know your thoughts on my problem.
