Umm, that's why most of us use tile or other mineral instead of laminate.
Again, laminate in a KITCHEN????
Personally, I use tile, etc. in kitchens, baths, fireplace hearths, and
entry ways, with hardwood (not laminate) everywhere else. Weenies are feel
free to put down throw rugs, but I hate carpet. If it can't go in the
washing machine (small bath mats) then I don't want it on my floor. I like
to be able to actually wash/clean my house.
LOL!!! Doesn't even get out much on Usenet. Here's a hint, it's a big
World, and not everyone is going to have the same taste as you. Get used to
it, or Plonk away. Pretty soon, you'll wonder why you're the only one on
As long as they used sealant around perimeter to eliminate water intrusion,
you can rest easy. Getting the dishwasher to come out should be a
non-issue. You should not be able to tell where the laminate stops, without
sliding the front toe panel of the dishwasher.
My flooring is the same (bought it this way) - laminate in the kitchen
would not my first choice if I were to redo the floors. I replaced the
dishwasher and as others pointed out I just had to lower the legs and
lift it over the edge. I shimmed up the floor under the counter with
wood the same thickness and slid the new dishwasher in.
Thanks for all the great replies, and it definitely makes since how it
works now. I have replaced a dish washer in the past, but it just
slid in where the old one was with no adjustments needed, but then
again that was with a vinyl floor that was very thin.
