comment Can I put a UK 3 pin plug or use an adapter on a dishwasher I brought in South Africa?
pIf the dishwasher is a "low efficiency" model, which has a big heater—either for heating the water or drying the dishes—then if it is possible, it might require moving some wires on a connection block inside the device. Even then, it probably won't heat as well on 120 v as it would on 240 or 208 v. A high efficiency device probably will work on 120 .. 240, probably without having to configure anything.

What make and model is the furnace? If this is a U.S. unit, what association does the furnace and the water heater have?

Thank you. That is much clearer.

A photo would help: the installation seems unclear and I haven't heard of a "hickey" (as an electrical term).

Hell, that sucks! At least you found the problem. I sincerely hope you have many years of below $50 utility bills.
