saturday i inspected a forclosed home that’s been vacant for nearly 2 years.
it had been winterized up until a few days prior to the inspection.
ran the dishwasher (my biggest mistake )…didn’t discharge, so the kitchen floor got soaked.
clients watched me clean up all the water and empty the dishwasher of the majority of the remaining water. water has stopped coming out at this point.
everything looks fine prior to me leaving…dishwasher is definately turned off. locking mechanism was not even thrown.
realtor tells me today that the vinyl tile in the kitchen, the surrounding carpet, and a few ceiling tiles below are soaked.
appraiser came by and turned the main water line off today.
realtor went out today and said the dishwasher was full of water also.
what leg do I have to stand on?
i figure they’ll point the finger at me.
i guess i was the dumb one for even running the dishwasher after it’s been sitting for 2 years, huh?
dried out seals/parts on the washer?
please help with advice and any possible words of comfort.
