How To Install A Dishwasher by thisoldhouse.com

Its age is starting to show, especially in your electric and water bills.

These units have sensors that self-adjust to wash with just the right amount of water. That means if you’re replacing a dishwasher, you only need to break these connections from the old appliance and reattach them to the new one. The most difficult part of the installation may be snaking the copper tubing through the cabinet without kinking it. This protects against electrocution should there be any leaks. If this hole falls below the cabinet floor, make two 11⁄4-inch holes at the back of the cabinet floor.Insert a narrow tube-bending spring inside the end of the copper nearest the hot-water valve. Note which side leads to the water hookup and which side is for the wiring. Check that the water and electrical lines are properly aligned. Slide a compression nut and ferrule over the end of the pipe and hand-tighten the nut onto the inlet. Using a screwdriver, tighten down the clamping bracket over the sheathing to hold the wires in place. Hand-tighten the nut back on the clamp from the inside of the box. Line up like colors of wire together—white to white and black to black—and tighten them together with wire nuts. Stuff the wires into the box and cover it with the metal cover plate. Slide the hose clamp over the connection and turn the screw to tighten it down. Hold the hose and strapping against the back of the cabinet so it makes an arc that’s higher than the drain inlet. Holding a torpedo level against the inside top of the dishwasher, adjust the feet until it’s level side to side.

Check for leaks at the water connections over the next few hours. This is a standard part for dishwashers and may be included in a dishwasher installation kit. Each includes a brass ferrule (or compression sleeve) and a compression nut. But you—you pack that thing with pots, plates, and glasses every night, sometimes again in the morning. And today’s models are so good at scrubbing, you don’t have to prerinse in the sink—which translates to even less of your hard-earned money and time down the drain. No plumber, no electrician—and no worries that you’re squandering your retirement money on a load of clean dishes. The existing electrical wiring is still good, but both plumbing lines should be replaced. However, check manufacturers’ literature—some companies’ models must be supplied with hot water. An invaluable tool for this is a tube-bending spring, which fits either inside the pipe or around it and bends it with even pressure. Carefully uncoil the copper tubing and loosely thread it from the dishwasher bay through the cabinet side and up into the cabinet via one of the floor holes. Use the spring to shape the tubing toward the valve then down to the hole in the cabinet. Slide a compression nut, then a ferrule over the end of the tubing at the valve. The inside springs can only be used on a pipe’s ends, but they make tighter turns.

Using an outside bending spring, shape the copper pipe so it wraps down the cabinet side and along the mark for the water-pipe channel. Use tape to secure both to the floor in position over their marked lines. Feed the end of the drain line from the dishwasher through the side of the cabinet and up via the unused floor hole. Cut off any excess pipe but leave 2 inches of straight copper for the compression fitting. Using an adjustable wrench, tighten it another quarter turn. Unscrew the star-shaped nut on the clamp, then push the wires and threaded end of the clamp through the hole in the side of the unit’s junction box. Wrap the exposed tip of the dishwasher’s ground wire around a mounting screw on the junction box and clamp it down with the screw. Take care not to kink the line or wrap it around the spray hose line. Using a screwdriver, attach the strapping to the cabinet wall. If any appear, turn off the water and tighten the compression fittings slightly. Get ones that will fit two 12-gauge wires—either yellow or red.
