If I had not had the water filter access door open and been standing right there I probably would not have heard the water nor seen it. Should be fixed under warranty as was found 3 days before 1 year warranty was up, thank god.
If not, come to Goshen - free repairs

Question: Which side of your island sink do your cupboard doors open on?

Note: If you really wanted the laundry chute I bet you could simply cut a hole in the floor
Doors on the island open on the stove side

My cabinet doors open on the stove side, that's another change opening on the front side now. Which to me is a good idea. not all that much space between the stove and the Island as you know. By the way I had a leak there to. Came out to be they didn't use any plumbers tape gray putty or any thing to sit the strainers on to seal between.

Our doors open on the entrance door also. Presley01 - I like your idea of attaching hooks for the laundry bag in the laundry chute. Think I'll mod that this week end.

SO now we know what the mid-2014 changes were!
1. Doors on island switched locations
2. Laundry Chute


I wonder what else was changed? Any of you have the factory-installed TV in the Bedroom?

Welcome and congrats on your new 8289WS. We had ours a little over 12 months and had a blowout. Had E rated mounted at Discount; run 80lbs with no problems.

I would becareful of that psi, the rims are rated for 60 lbs. PSI only. They will hold more but that is the speck from the manufacturer. If your running at 65 mphs. Your tire could get to 90 PSI very easy.
