Installing the Dishwasher Part II

Let's try this again, shall we? Discount Builders is my new Home Depot. Everyone there is super knowledgeable and always willing to help. I started to explain to the guy in the plumbing aisle what I needed, and he interrupted: What size? I said 3/8 inch, and he immediately grabbed everything I needed. He asked how far the dishwasher was from the water lines. I didn't think it was that far. I figured 4 feet would be more than plenty, so I got a 4 foot water supply hose.

This is everything I bought today:

Ugh, it turns out the water supply hose was ONE INCH too short!

With the electrical plugged in, and the bottom of the dishwasher still open, I decided to just make sure everything was level and plumb. It took quite a bit of fannegling, but I got it! I secured it to the wood under the counter with two screws. All set!
