Is it time to replace your old dishwasher? This project is not as difficult as it seems. This guide will show you how to install a dishwasher without any guesswork.

What you will need for this project:

  • New dishwasher
  • Pliers
  • Pipe Joint Compound
  • Dishwasher connector kit – sold separately. Before purchasing this, measure the distance from the dishwasher to the water supply valve to determine what length you need to buy.
  • Electric cord – often sold separately. Look at the dishwasher packaging to determine if you need to purchase an electric cord. If you are replacing an existing dishwasher you may be able to re-use the cord from the old machine.
