It's time to replace the old faithful Kitchen Aide in seasonal summer
cottage. The worst job of draining the water and putting the house to
bed each fall is doing the dishwasher. If I don't remove & completely
drain the intake solenoid it freezes and breaks. Access is tight,
hands too big, screws tiny, etc. etc. Adding antifreeze to tub of
water and then running it through just does the drain solenoid side of
things. Any advise would be appreciated.
I have the cheapest Sears in my cottage. I disconnect the water inlet, use
a sponge to remove as much water as I can, and dump in some antifreeze.
It has survived 4 years now.
(Funny part is that first year I used a plumber to winterize because I
didn't know first thing about it. He didn't do anything to the dishwasher
or cloths washer and they both made it despite an ocassional below zero
temp. I don't know if I was lucky or if they just don't need anything. Now
I winterize both...)
