Had a granite countertop installed last week, and this weekend installed
dishwasher. How do you attach it to the counter? I saw somewhere where
you could come in from the side, but I didn't see anywhere on my model
where you could do that. The installers said a dab of liquid nails where
the screw would normanlly go. Anyone have any experience with this method?
I use liquid nails for many projects, just wondering if it was the right
stuff for this job.
I think my dishwasher just sits on the floor. I'm sure that's true
for my refrigerator.
It's not like the clothes washer that spins around a whole load of
laundry, sometimes unbalanced, and even that just sits on the floor.
All that spins in a dishwahser is a lightweight plastic arm. And the
water moves but in a pretty balanced manner.
Remove NOPSAM to email me. Please let
me know if you have posted also.
Liquid Nails is the preferred method for me. You want the thing
attached...eliminates the tipping that occurs when you have the door
down and the weight of the dishes on the door. Just a couple dabs of
Liquid Nails on each corner works just fine.
Isn't your granite countertop installed on 3/4 inch plywood? Even if
you have granite edging, there should still be plywood back there
You do need it to be screwed in, because otherwise it could tip over
when you open it (when we moved into our house the previous owner had
done some work and hadn't attached the dish washer, and we got a
surprise first time we went to use it).
I had my granite counters installed with the dishwasher in place and plumbed in
(only about , oh, four hours ago!). The height of the dishwasher had been
adjusted to standard bottom cabinet top level, and the granite installer screwed
the dishwasher into the countertop.
