I'm installing a new Bosch dishwasher. The way the thing is set up, the
elbow fitting where you connect the hot water to, has to be pointing
straight right, at the 3:00 position. The instructions say to be sure not to
tighten it too much.
I bought a new elbow fitting at Home Depot, and when I tighten it -- but not
overtighten it -- so it points to the 3:00 position, it leaks water (yes,
I'm using pipe thread compound on the threads). If I try to tighten it
further, and do another revolution, I can get it around to about the 11:00
position, and then it seems if I tighten it any further, I'm going to be
wrenching on it and possibly damaging it.
Any ideas on what to do? I assume all elbow fittings have the threads
starting in the same place, so even if I replace that, I'd run into a
Any advice would be appreciated!!
