We bought a Kenmore dishwasher at a local Sears outlet store, but it didn't
include any parts for installation, nor any manuals for installation. We
were sent a "Dishwasher Use & Care Guide"...
Is it a big deal that we didn't have any parts included? What would have
been missing? Are they of any expense? Do I need an installation manual?
Sears ( at least at the Sears Hardware, I work at) sells a dishwasher
installation kit and drain hoses. You'll probably need a new quarter stop
valve for under the sink and either electrical hardwired in from the circuit
box or a cord if you have an outlet under the sink. If you have a disposal,
be sure to knock out the drain plug in it when you hook up the drain hose
(easily forgotten). I would bet that the store you bought it at would be
willing to at least make a copy of the installation instructions from
another unit on the floor. I've done that many times at no cost to the
customer. Beats ordering one from parts for $10.
