In response to Re: dishwasher plumbing in

: I am trying to plumb in a new dishwasher- I have got as far as turning off the main water supply, so I can take out the old dishwasher. However I don't know where to turn the water off! where is it likely to be?
: can I turn off the supply to the dishwasher using the fawcet under the sink?. There is an oval fawcet with "brass craft " stamped on it,under the sink, that is connected to the pipe from the old dishwasher. I'm assuming this will turn off the water supply. I cannot get the fawcet to budge. How can i get the thing to turn? The old dishwasher was plumbed in 15 years ago. The house is 30 yrs old.

: i'd like to do this myself without having to resort to calling a plumber.

Sarah,
That brasscraft sounds like the shutoff. A plumber may be able to shut it off, or in most cases he would replace the non-working shutoff with a new one. 30 years is a long time for a hot water shutoff. If you can't turn it now, wouldn't you like one you could? Pliers may turn the shutoff, or break it off. Good luck Terry
