8-9 minutes does not seem to long to reach 500. My oven takes 9 minutes to pre-heat to 450 and that was right out of the box.

36 Seconds to ignite, so it doesn't seem to be the igniter maybe the line where the gas/ fire comes out is all filled with guck and garbage.

Has it seemed to get longer and longer? 8-9 minutes does not seem long.

Don't think so.
 10 min or less is the standard.

 Will test it later to see if the flame goes off while pre-heating the oven.

 Unless it's the gas valve which supplies the gas when the ignitor is on.(whatever that part is called.)
 Will need to watch a youtube video or two on how to diagnose a bad gas valve which goes on when the ignitor goes on. There's a set number of Ohms of resistance for a good working one.
 @CountValentine Ever had a bad sensor?

Not about specs, technically they are all 32.62"  so it fits.
Question is about mandatory clearance

Side clearance should not be an issue. You can look at the manual online to make sure.

Seems like something got stuck in the motor of my dishwasher. When we try turning it on it makes a grinding noise for a few seconds and then shuts. How can I figure out how to get it out?
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

.
Did you empty the basket or the filter and clear it from any dirt?

 Assuming when the water starts to drain you hear a grinding noise and it turns off?

If it's the same model as mine I can walk you through, had the same issue with mine.
 I would put the neironim glass candle holders in the dishwasher to clean them from the wax and the dirt.
(I don't recommend anyone doing that, as your putting wax in your sewer system and the pipes, but that's a different story.)

 Anyways the little metal pieces weren't removed that week from the glass cups and instead went into the motor, only figured that out when I removed the dishwasher from the wall and cleaned it out by removing the drain pump motor.
 I thought the motor was dead, so bought myself a new one from ebay, but in the end it was just a bunch of metal pieces all over the motor.
