Leaking Line From Dishwasher

Last weekend my son-in-law came and installed my new garbage disposal. He tried his best to get the pipes tight so they would not leak. We ran water in the sink and everything appeared to be fine.

After he and my daughter left, I ran the dishwasher and under pressure, the pipe leaked. I set a small bowl under the pipe and left it there. I only run the dishwasher once a week so it is not a big problem. I certainly didn't want my son-in-law, who has plenty to do between his job and the farm, to have to come back in here and replace a gasket in that pipe. I imagine that's what it needs. I may just call a plumber one of these days and have it done. I have to stay in the kitchen while the dishwasher runs to be sure the leak doesn't get worse. It's running now and I will need to leave for work in thirty minutes. I hope it finishes by then or I will just turn it off.

Tonight I need to bake my two cakes for the dinner at the First Christian Church in Independence on Tuesday evening. I will ice them in the morning before I leave for Independence at 9:00. This evening Bob A., Phyllis F., and Karan M. will have theirs over here too. I will get my hair cut while I'm there in Independence and then come back and go to work at 1:00. That means I will work until 5:00 this week to make up the time lost Tuesday morning.

I have a PINCH meeting at 5:30 on Wednesday. Thursday I will need to fax in my time sheet to Aime. Friday I will get my hair done for the weekend and meet Myra for lunch in Bartlesville. I need to see Jennifer at the library either Friday morning or late afternoon decide what we will display at the Home Show on the 28th. She will be gone all next week.

We will leave Friday afternoon at 3:00 to go to Springfield for the Pastors and Priesthood Members meeting with our mission center executive. Leslie, my daughter, will drive. The meeting starts at 8:30 on Saturday morning so we will stay overnight in a motel. So next weekend will be busy too.

Hi Margie...Glad that your trip to Branson was fun.
A friend of mine left her dishwasher running while she left for Chicago in the morning. Coming back in the evening, she found the dishwasher still going and water all over the floor. It had seeped through the ceiling of the room below and ruined the kitchen floor, the ceiling below and the carpeting. What a mess and expense...having to replace and repair all of that. So, learning a lesson from that, I never leave the dishwasher running when I leave....even if it's just a trip to the store.

Me either. That was a catastrophe for your friend.

Good to see you here, Balisha.
