Re: What is The most durable way to mark the touch panel on a dish washer?

I've already ask. Maintenance gave me permission to cover up the touch panel.

They will keep the manual and I will download a copy of the manual. So, figureing out what different presses on the panel shouldn't be too big of a problem if the dish washer needs maintenance.

Here in the past few years, it seems to me that when an appliance needs new parts, its cheaper to just replace the entire appliance.

BTW, I haven't received the new dish washer yet. I was told that it does have a touch panel But, Maybe the panel will not be completely flat. Some appliances have a minor raised or indented place for each selection. I wouldn't need to mark some thing like this because I can easily memorize which slightly raised or indented areas do.

James, check to see that the Velcro is transparent; I doubt that it is. You would need transparent covering, whether dots or tape.

I did find velcros strips from Maxi Aids that are advertised to be good for marking items. I’ll probably go with those.

Any fabric store should sell Velcro. You can cut it to the size you need, peel the backing off and stick it on.

I like to choose my own battles.



Around here, I have been treated like a King so, why rock the boat. Especially since V I persons work out marking appliances all of the time.



I only ask on list because I have almost no experience in marking some thing like a dish washer that is warm and often damp.



I am hoping that some one can refer me to the right type of velcrose dots. And, where to buy them.

If that dish washer can't be marked then I would ask your managment if you can buy your own dish washer if they are not willing to provide you one. The worst case would be to wash your dishes at the sink by hand. My apartment complex does not provide dish washers. You certainly stand up for your rites to have an accessable dish washer. If you have to then go over their heads.

We don't have accessable laundry machines they are card machines so good luck

It depends on what type of touch panel it is. I have a bread maker that has a glass panel. There are no membrane keys, it’s extremely difficult to mark as just touching the glass triggers the buttons. Needless to say it’s been sitting in the box for the last four years. Luckily I got it with air miles so wasn’t out any money.



If it’s a membrane touch pad I would suggest velcroe as it sticks well and is easy to feel.

Hi,



I have an over-the -stove microwave.

I had my sister mark 15 of the touch-panel items with those small dots. I don’t know what brand. They are about the size and shape of a split pea. You just peel them of the sheet and stick them on.

In 8 years, 2 have fallen off and that has been in the last month or so.

Guess what 2 fell off?

You got it, 1 and 2.

I these 15 dots probably cost about a buck.

I got them from the braille superstore here in Canada. I think they are similar to the ones sold by maxiaids.

They come in a little sheet of 40 and cost a few dollars.

Tell them they need to give you a ADA compliant dishwasher for your disability and you will not pay rent until it happens

Hi all,



The maintenance department at my apartment complex is installing a new dish washer in my apartment early next week. I did not get any say so concerning what kind of controls it comes with. I have recently learned that it will have a touch panel. Therefore, I will need to mark it.



Is there any glue on product that will with stand the heat, humidity, and daily cleaning of the front of the dish washer? Or, is there some kind of an overlay product that I can hold up to the panel to assist me in selecting different functions.



For now, all I know is that it will either be a Whirlpool or a Kenmoore.



Thanks,



James B
