Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I'm having my kitchen counter tops replaced with granite. I have a GE Model GSD700 dishwasher that is now attached to the existing counter top. The granite counter tops will not accept having a dishwasher attached. I need installation instructions for the dishwasher which do not include being attached to the counter top. [email protected]


Answers :

You can attach a block of wood using silicone adhesive to hold it in place on the underside of the granite top. After the silicone has cured (usually 24 hrs) you can use the same mounting clips as before. Just be sure to use shorter screws than the thickness of the wood block.

\015\012• Purchase and install the GPF65 side-mount
\015\012bracket kit if the underside of counter is granite
\015\012or a similar material that will not accept wood
\015\012screws. The GPF65 kit is available from authorized
\015\012GE appliance dealers.

Hi, we are trying to install our new Bosch dishwasher model: SMU68M05AU. I am surprised to see packing foam and flimsy edging across the top edge that meets up to the stainless steel door edge when its closed. I can not find detailed installation instructions. Is there not a strip that goes across the top to meet the door as the top looks very ugly? The dishwasher door protrudes from the under bench cupboard space so the top part is in view and exposed.
