Hi, hope someone can help. New dishwasher installed today - the first time we used it the water supply has gone off everywhere in the house! What could have caused this?? Bit late to go banging on neighbours door to see if their supply is affected...

Presumably the taps, etc were working before you switched the dishwasher on?

Did the stopcock get turned back on after it was installed?

Shatners that's what I was getting at, but I didn't just ask directly.

You can't beat about the bush when it comes to a stopcock. Bugger plumbing etiquette if such a thing exists.

Seems the dishwasher was a red herring! Got through to water company and its a supply problem - large areas of town are without water apparently. Weird coincidence to happen on the dishwashers maiden cycle! Thanks for your suggestions night night all
