Dishwasher Power Cord


You cannot make your own cord. You must buy an appliance cord from your local big box store.

If you are not familiar with SJOOW, or making a cord, please don't reply.

Thanks again
Wow, you still aren't listening!!!!!!!!
You do not need a 12 gauge wire and plug!

You might want to take a class on using Google. It was pretty easy to find the mystery cord that doesn't exist. Maybe a little less condescending responses and you'd make more progress.

Turning a cord issue for a dishwasher into a crisis. Get a life.

And if you would have spent more than 15 seconds, you would know it is 16g!

Dishwasher Power Cord


OSHA will not allow an applied plug on a cord--plug must be molded permanently to the cord--

If you want to make a 20 amp cord--buy a 20 amp plug and a 12 gauge cord and make it up--What kind of instructions does a person need to put a plug onto a cord?

And why would any one want to do that when a 20 amp appliance cord is so easy to get?

Dishwasher Power Cord


Just because it is called a 'dishwasher cord' doesn't make it right, and they are too short.
