It is still not over!
For those of you following my Dishwasher Saga on September 20th I posted the following update.
September 17th We spoke to the office again and were told that it was now repaired and would be delivered back to us, sometime this week. Well guess what we had a phone call this evening and it is due to be delivered tomorrow morning, Tuesday 21st September.
I am quite excited as we have not had one for the last few months, so lets hope it all works this time.
September 10th No further news from the Engineer about the dishwasher, we have spoken to the office. They have no news and promise to ring back when they have some so we wait. Dishwasher Saga
September 27th Well since the above reports there has been good news, bad news and now more bad news! September 21st the dishwasher was delivered back to us as promised was tested in situ and all seemed ok, until we got up the next morning to find a large puddle of water on the kitchen floor. Last Friday morning two engineers were sent out to see the what they could do. They did not seem to believe it was leaking until they tested it themselves. After fiddling around and using copious amounts of silicone sealer they left with instructions not to use until the next day to allow it time to set.
As we always use the dishwasher overnight to take advantage of the lower electricity rates it was not tried until Saturday night. Guess what we woke to a wet floor again on Sunday. A phone call this morning elicited the response of ‘Mio Dio’, so now we await another appointment!
This saga has now been running since July 16th and there is nothing we can do about it. Ok we have learnt that Wega are maybe not a great make of Dishwasher, even the engineers have agreed this when we asked them.
We have never heard of this make before and would not recommend it either, however it came as an extra free gift with our beautiful kitchen!
We will certainly be letting the kitchen suppliers know we are unimpressed!
I will be back later with the post that I intended to publish today, but had to get this done first, as I needed to and some of you had been asking.
I do appreciate how lucky I am to have a dishwasher but am beginning to wonder if I need one after all, free gift or not.
