Dishwasher Installation

Sick of hand washing your dishes and thinking of buying a dishwasher? Well, installing your own dishwasher may not be a project that every homeowner or business owner will want to undertake. Dishwasher installation is also part of the professional plumbing services we offer at Kay Plumbing.


New dishwasher installation considerations

  • Permits may be required.Dishwasher by Whirlpool
  • There are plumbing connections to be made on the hot water lines and connections to the drainage system.
  • Electrical hook-ups must be made.
  • Carpentry considerations for new installations.

Before you buy a dishwasher:

Make sure there is adequate space for a built-in dishwasher or a stand alone model. If all of your cupboard space is full, you will have to remove a section or extend the counter top by about 24 inches for the average built-in dishwashers (other sizes are available).

When you have the open space available, it would be a good time to install the electrical connections and plumbing connections before your dishwasher arrives.

Dishwasher electrical connections

A standard residential dishwasher should have a connection to a 120 volt, 20 amp circuit. We will recommend hiring a licensed electrician.
