Unhappy

My landlord has granted permission to replace an old dishwasher but we must handle the purchasing and installation under a stingey budget. We bought a Kenmore online, disconnected the old washer and had to replace the nipple for the water supply to the kitchen sink.

It's all put back together, with no disasters, but there's no water flow to the kitchen faucets (hot or cold, and the shut offs are open and the bathrooms work). We're stumped?

Can anyone advise a fix? we've been doing dishes in the bathtub for three days.H E L P!

No idea on this one. I'm sending your question over to plumbing.

Cool

Sounds like you have separate cut-off valves somewhere for your hot and cold supply lines to the kitchen sink. The dishwasher should have a hot water supply line only. Find the cut-offs, and turn them on. Good Luck!

Hmm, wish I could see this one. What sort of nipple did you use? Is there water flow to the dishwasher?

On mine I used a three-T attached to the top of the shut-off valve for the hot water. That way water continues to the sink and to the DW, and is only stopped by the shut-off valve. The T was a compression type fitting that screwed into the top of the shut-off valve then you just attached your water lines to the fitting. I forget the professional term for the T but if you describe your situation to the local Scotty's, Lowe's, or Home Depot they can usually take you the fitting you need. Talk to one of the Plumbing Professionals at Lowe's/HD/Scotty's, not those pimple-faced kids, ya know.

I would guess there are another pair of shut off valves someplace that aren't open.
