Installation Kits

Install it yourself so you don't have to wash them yourself.

Important Considerations


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


Confirm that electrical output is sufficient for the location of your new dishwasher. You will need:

  • A grounded electrical outlet.
    (no extension cord or adapter)
  • A spare 15 amp circuit
  • Refer to your dishwasher's Use and Care Guide for additional installation requirements and guidelines.


We do not offer disposal or installation of dishwashers. Dishwashers in good condition may be donated to a local charity.
