When you decide to install or replace a dishwasher you might think that all you have to buy is the dishwasher. It would be nice if that was so, but unfortunately that is not the case. Most new dishwashers are not sold with all the parts required for the installation.
Knowing exactly what materials you will need to install your new dishwasher can save you the trouble of making multiple trips to the store.
When you purchase a new dishwasher take a close look at what is included with your machine.
Materials You Will Need:
- Power Cord (you can re-use the one on an existing dishwasher)
- Wire nuts
- Strain relief for the electric cord
- Dishwasher connector kit (includes the water line and 90 degree fitting)
- Teflon tape
Having a shopping list to guide you can help make the installation of a dishwasher a breeze.
