      I just replaced by old dishwasher with a new one. Worked fine for the first 3 loads, now when water enters the unit I get some serious vibrations (I am assuming from the copper line). When I open the parallel hot water faucet to the bathroom next door the vibration stops. Never had this problem with the old unit. I did have to use all of the copper line in order to make the connection to the washer, previously the line had a curvature from the sink area before it ran into the dishwasher cabinet area. Any ideas for solutions???

      Sounds like either the line is kinked or there is air in the line that has not escaped yet.

      If running all hot faucets in house does not help, shut main off, open all faucets and drain out system completely.

      Then turn water back on and let all faucets run consistent till no air is present coming out of lines.

      Make sure that if water line to dishwasher is vibrating, somehow try to support this by means of a tube talon or j-hook somewhere to keep this from causing undo stress on connections to source.
