And it is something I have seldom done since 1965, when we bought our first dishwasher.
But last week, I had to buy a new kitchen faucet and during the installation, the plumber discovered that my disposal was leaking too. Until the new disposal is put in, I can't use my dishwasher. UGH!
The plumber had one on his truck that he offered to us, but he wanted $400 for it (including installation) and we knew that was highway robbery!
We ordered one from Am*z*n at 1/4th the cost. It's here now, along with a connection kit, but as we also had a drip in a bathroom faucet, I wanted to wait until we got a new part for that faucet - so we could have everything done on one day.
We have everything we need now, so I am hoping the plumber can come tomorrow afternoon. Wish me luck!
