  • yup, mine blew up one day, and the drain clogged, so it was spilling water everywhere! i had been changing my daughter's diaper, and i came back to the kitchen and there was water all over the floor. my cat was in the corner of the room freaking out b/c she didn't have enough room to jump up to the counter. It was chaos!!!! but the whole situation was funny later. I'm not saying yours is, I hated having to do dishes in one sink, and not being able to run water, so I made my husband wash whatever he used when he was done

  • When we bought our house and did the final walk-through with the agent she tested the dishwasher for a second (when the water went in and you heard the motor she shut it off and we all agreed it worked). Boy, were we dummies! When you buy a house tell them to run the dishwasher through a full cycle, non-stop. When we began to wash dishes we kept finding a puddle on the floor in front of the sink. Thinking it was the pipe, hubby replaced the pipe under the sink, bought a new faucet, and we still had a puddle. He finally pulled out the dishwasher and we saw a huge crack running down the side where the water was being let out. We've been washing dishes by hand for 2 years now. Arrgghhh!

  • PS: For a one-sink, if there is enough room. Buy a small dishwashing bin to place in your sink and scoot it as far to one side as possible so you can have a small space to rinse. It's better than having to drain the sink every so often...LOL.
