Dishwasher Installation in Portland

Dishwasher Installation: What Does it Entail?

Before installing the new dishwasher, the plumber needs to uninstall the current dishwasher. This includes:

  1. Disconnecting the power to the dishwasher from the circuit breaker.
  2. Turning off the water line connected to the dishwasher.
  3. Disconnecting the wiring and water supply line from the appliance.
  4. Detaching the old dishwasher from the counter and adjacent cabinets.

Our licensed plumbers are trained in this process and know how to do it properly to avoid any electric shocks and water leaks.

After the old appliance has been uninstalled and moved, our plumber can unpackage the new dishwasher near the available space to avoid damage to the surrounding flooring.

Then, the dishwasher is ready to be installed.

Why is Proper Dishwasher Installation Important?

You might be asking yourself “Can’t I just install the dishwasher myself? Do I really need a plumber?”

You could attempt the installation yourself, but that might result in:

  • The dishwasher being wired incorrectly
  • A water leak from incorrect pipe and fixture placement
  • Possible electric shocks
  • Or other similar issues

We recommend leaving this complex task to a professional to ensure safety and proper functionality.

Post-Installation: Running Your First Cycle

After one of our plumbers finishes the installation, you’re set to run your first dishwashing cycle. 

We recommend running an empty cycle to ensure all parts are connected properly and to rid your new appliance of any leftover scum or debris from the manufacturer.
