In Europe it will be 240. In the US, it will be 120.
In my case, there is a receptacle mounted in the sink cabinet and the
disposal and DW have cords with plugs that run to it. I don't know if that
meets code, but it sure is handy if you have to remove them for service.
Just a side note here, when I installed my dishwasher and disposal I
pulled 220 from the box to the plug under the sink. Then I split it at
the plug. One side of the plug is switched for the disposal and the
other is hot for the dishwasher.
Supposedly, because each side of the plug is out of phase with each
other, you do not have to worry with and overload when the Dishwasher is
in drying mode and you use the disposal.
Just my two cents.
You should address this on a by dish washer basis. If you are
installing one, get the installation instructions and follow the
Now for the residential models I was looking at, at lowes, were all
120v models. Just my observation.
