Important Considerations


Contact a licensed professional for installation. New installations may require significant carpentry, electrical and plumbing skills.


Confirm the electrical output is sufficient for the location of your new dishwasher. You will need: a grounded electrical outlet (no extension cord or adapter) and a separate 15 amp circuit. Refer to your dishwasher's Use and Care Guide for additional installation requirements and guidelines.


Some retailers offer removal of your old dishwasher with delivery of your new one. Dishwashers in good condition may be donated to a local charity.
