Update for anyone who cares - the dishwasher works like a champ. Took two tries to get the hot water hose on tight enough to prevent leaks. I don't think I had enough Teflon tape on the first time.
The next day the bathroom faucet broke. The hot water handle just snapped right off in wifey's hand. She picked out a new bronze fixture at Home Depot and I installed it the next night. Good excuse to buy a couple new tools, like a basin wrench which was a life saver. The hardest part was getting the old fixture out. Took some WD-40, some elbow grease and a lot of patience. Putting the new one in was comparatively easy.
