The dryer, flex hose, and fittings were all replaced three months ago. I have a few questions:
1. Since these connectors are almost brand new, I assume there is no reason to replace them? Or should I play it safe and get new connectors, or even replace the flex hose?
2. Do I need to install new pipe dope or teflon tape when reconnecting? I believe pipe dope (some green stuff) was used when the plumber did the original install, but assume it is dried out now so I need more.
3. What kind of wrench should I use to tighten the connectors? Is there any danger of overtightening, or should I go as far as I can?
I realize I should do the dishwasher soap test to ensure there are no leaks once I'm done.
Any advice would be appreciated.
