The wash-disher blog

There once was a little boy named Jacob. He lived in a house with his mommy and his daddy. One night his mommy was emptying the dishwasher, usually a job reserved for his daddy. She got distracted, which is pretty normal, and left the door down with the bottom rack out. Little Jacob, unbeknownst to his parents, climbed all the way on the door and proceeded to play in the bottom of the dishwasher...the usual, sticking his silverware and toys in there. As everyone was getting ready for bed, his daddy went to close the dishwasher door only to find out that it would not close. Apparently dishwashers are not built to hold 34 pound little boys. That is the true and accurate account of how we became owners of a new dishwasher.

Jeff was going to try to fix it but when he was looking online for parts he discovered that the dishwasher we had only cost $100 retail. With that knowledge (and the fact that we never really liked it because it was a piece of crap!) we decided to invest in a new dishwasher. We bought a new Frigidaire stainless steel dishwasher on Father's Day at Mazer's.

Jeff and my Dad put it in on Tuesday night. The reason the post is titled "wash-disher" is because when they were working on getting the old one out, Jacob came in the kitchen and said, "What are you guys doing? Are you fixing the wash-disher?" It was really cute...he knows it's a dishwasher he just got too excited and called it a wash-disher. The install took two days because our copper line was not long enough for the new one. Dad came back on Wednesday and finished the install. We used it for the first time and it's so quiet!
